So the first week out of six is about to come to an end and I’d like to believe I’ve been using my time productively thus far.
I finished the first two Cirque Du Freak books. They’re pretty interesting and for once, I don’t really have an issue reading a book about vampires. (Cause it’s not a romance novel where the vampire competes with a werewolf for the love of a girl) Although there are 12 books in total, I’m just going to finish one more and then finally get to my SNOOKI book! It’s a fictional book and I’m totally excited to read it. It’s called, “A Shore Thing”. Doesn’t is sound amazing already? I sure think so. And by the way, after I’ve finished reading the first three Cirque Du Freak books, I can watch the movie which is based off the first three books.
And then I did try drawing another portrait but unfortunately, I messed the eyes up. So I kept erasing and redrawing over and over again… Until I created a hole in the right eye. I felt really frustrated cause the hair looked fabulous and then this eye had to spoil it! I tried asking my Mum to cut out another eye that I drew and pasting on top of the hole.(If I were to cut the eye out myself, I’d have failed. I have shaky hands) Then at first she was going to help me and right before I passed the scissors to her, she told me it’s better if I redrew the whole thing. #Damn. I protested for a while but then it’s true. After all, Mum knows best right?
So I’ll be getting back to drawing in a few days or maybe even later today. And if that wasn’t enough to make me doubt my drawing skills(I wouldn’t really call them skills; I’m really not that great), I saw a portrait a friend drew and went straight into the “Wow. I suck” mood. I love seeing other portraits but they are always a constant reminder that I’m nowhere near good. As much as I tell myself that I’m drawing these cause I like to draw, sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my time.
On Tuesday, I met Shafna to make more Youtube videos. I believe she should be on a plane to India right now or yesterday. I convinced her to make video diaries so I really hope she does! 21 Days of video diaries. #TotesExcited. After that, I watched The Internship with Gina & Rosydi. It was a great movie and you can find my review here: https://minuteswitharavind.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/the-internship-review/
Other than that, I haven’t really been meeting any of my friends and classmates. But the class chalet is coming up. As excited as I am, I also feel skeptical. Hoping for a fun time but you know how you don’t always get what you want. We’ll just have to wait and see. Oh and I managed to clear two shows from my to-watch list. New Girl & Baby Daddy. Gonna miss Baby Daddy but New Girl‘s 3rd season is starting in a week or two.
So I wonder what’s in store for me over the next five weeks. I know I’ll definitely make time to have a sleepover or two with my cousins. And then another cousin’s engagement is coming up and well… Let’s just say I have no comments on that. Hmm… Then I’ve got the class chalet obviously. Hoping to organise a few outings with old and new friends. Catch a few movies and play bowling or pool. But as Julie Chen would say, Expect the Unexpected. So I’ll do a bit of that too.
