Halloween is nigh

 

Ok, just like last year myself and Charlotte wanted to make a pumpkin, took her a while to figure out what to do, but we have just finished it.

Gaze in it's glory...or um something ^_^.

Mario

Also a very creepy thing, the light shadow that Mario casts, looks like Bowser *OMG* if you can't see it, think of how those bowser levels look on Mario 64 when the level starts.

creepy

Newport FTW

 

Ok not sure if anyone noticed, but I didn't mention anything about the uni I was going to, now people that know me should know where I'm going, but for those that don't I'll just give a run through of everything ^_^.

I shall now be going to The University of Wales, Newport, as the name says in Wales (OMG like so far away) I shall be studying Computer Games Design, mainly due to my love of games, and from this I hope to get into the industry :). The main reason for my choosing Newport was that part of the course is video game history, and being taught something like that is just wow, even though I hope I know a fair bit.

And the other reason why is because it's design but from the art side of things, and as I've recently taken a special liking to art (not like I didn't before) I decided I want to do something related to art.

I hope to do good on my course :) and have a fun three years at uni, I've now sorted out all my forms (I hope) and have a place to live for a year, the net in my room and well I think that's it, I finally move soon and finish work and living here...wow hopefully Rachel or someone will have a party before we all depart, and perhaps I should meet up with Chidgey. And there's also packing ontop of that, so much to do in like two weeks O_o

Results!

 

A bit late but now's a better time than never...

Ok so results day was back on the 17th of August, very nervy time, unsure of if I would get into my chosen uni or not, we set out pretty earlish and there were already quite a few people there, but not our results.

Well the official ones, we were given a little piece of paper with what grades we got as the postman hadn't come with the official results yet. But it was all ok I got what I needed, which is as follows:

Media - A
Art - C
Law - D
General - *cough* E *cough*

Ok so I did as I hoped in Media, and the same with art, was a little disappointed in Law and I couldn't really give a shit for general, they didn't count it so I couldn't care less. So we ended up having to wait an hour or two and then they came and I was less happy than before, I pretty much failed two of my law exams, and I revised and thought I would have done well, but hey that's why I got a D. I was more than happy with art though, although I only got a D for my coursework and well I thought I'd made a darn good piece of work, same with my exam I only got a C but hmm oh well, I can't win them all. I may have got not great grades but in my mind I got great pieces of work out of it.

So with all the stress aside myself and Charlotte later went to a party at Jay's which was cool, I only hope I can meet up with everybody one last time, as I'm gonna miss everyone :(

So yeah any congrats send them my way! even if they are a little late.

Battlestar Galactica season 3 preview

 

Paul sent me a link yesterday to this which I thought was really cool, as it's just a little thing reminding me season 3 will be aired soon...well in a few months.

Makes me chuckle though since to show time has passed people either grew facial hair or their hair grew longer ^_^ moustaches are funny. But I must say that it looks a lot darker than the previous seasons, they're probably going for a certain style to look like. Which actually makes it look less like the previous seasons so I'm not so sure what to expect from it. But I know what I would like, and that is to see Dean Stockwell in it again, cos he's just funny :D

Bestest um Media teacher in the world :P

 

Ok well here's number two in the trilogy :P this is about my media teacher, good ol' Mr. Morris, I only started having him as a teacher from year 12 as I never took media before and that's pretty much all he teaches.

So I've only known the guy two years really, but it was pretty cool, yeah he gets boring at times, but he can also be funny...at times, with his lines, like fingers in the pies and whatnot, media people would understand ^_^.

Anyway from never doing media before I'll be getting an A this year (well as long as I get 33 marks in the last exam, shouldn't be too hard :P) so all round he's a pretty cool teacher, if you pay attention in the lessons, but it does get rather hard at times :P.

With the constant watching of the first 10 minutes of "The Enforcer" or the constant bringing James Bond into a conversation he won't be missed. Also the uhh excuse me :P, and you have a knowing look on your face ^_^.

Best out of two pics

He looks a tad surprised :P.

You shall be missed, and I'm sure everyone in media can now be just as cool as you were with their little cue cards in their top pockets for looking at when at work and such :P

Bestest art teacher in the world ^_^

 

Well I thought I'd do a few posts since I've now finished school, and I think I'll do three which are related to teachers (including this one).

This here post is dedicated to the coolness of my art teacher Mr.Wadwell, from having years of crap art teachers who sit there and make you do nothing, for once I've been made to do art for the past two years. I had always liked art but pretty much sucked.

And as he puts it he taught me how to draw, now I could draw before, just not so well, I've learnt a lot from him and am happy I had such a good teacher for these past two years.

He was also a pretty cool teacher as he had an okish taste in films, great taste in music and was alround a fun person to be around, shame he was so sarcastic sometimes, it could get old when you've heard the same thing about 5 times :P.

But enough of that, I'm so happy that my art has developed so well, as otherwise I probably wouldn't have decided to go to uni, and he's the reason I decided to go with art.

Thanks Wadders.

If there's any teacher I'm gonna miss the most it'll probably be him, altho it's gonna be hard to forget Mr.McLeod or of course Mr.Morris, pictures and a bit of writing about these two teachers coming soon when I have a photo ^_^

For those that haven't seen him, here he is in all his glory :P

wadwell

Apparently he had 19 piercings...or maybe it was 15, whatever it was I've never had a teacher like that in my life ^_^ since they're usually all so serious.

Promness

 

So my sister Emma is helping us with the prom and stuff, and we're having a hard time deciding what to do with my hair, mainly since she thinks I should have it down, but I prefer having it up ^^ and there's lots you can do with it, Emma reckons straightened with a curly bit somewhere, can't remember and I just want up nicely somehow :P So Emma got bored and gave me a french plat, which looks nice, but as we all agree on looks rather childish for something like the prom.

frenchy

This prom stuff is like the most I've ever had to bother with what I'm wearing, as it's usually just choose a pair of trousers and a top and thats it but, gawd it's like everything has to match and look all formal and stuff, how annoying. I can't wait to wonder what will end up happening with my hair ^^, Emma is good with hair stuff cos she was a hairdresser, and she's good with the whole dressing up stuff :P me am lucky I have a nice sister =).

Charlotte said I look like Lara Croft from behind :P.

Last day of the examness!!!

 

Well it's finally done, art exam finished, with the exception of my prep work for it, which shall be finished today and tomorrow and given in monday, all finished and amazing looking :D I should get a good grade on this work cos I've put soooo much effort into it. And then it's just finishing the contextual study and creative problem, yay :P And of course learning the criminal law stuff and making sure I get at least 35 marks on my media exam so that I get an A, woopie :).

Anyway for those who wish to see my picture.

3rd day

I'm not as happy with it as I thought I would be, but it's not that bad looking. At least I finished in time :D
