…..because I did nothing for halloween this year, I’m posting this halloween photo from 2 years ago -_-
Sembreak is coming to a close and I’m going to spend that last day of freedom in Subic with my family. I don’t really know what we’re going to do there, but I’m going to be bringing my copy of Haruki Murakami’s “Dance, Dance, Dance.” Funny, it’s my 3rd book for the past month. The first book I’ve read was “After Dark” by the same author and the second one was “Perfume: A Story of a Murderer” by Patrick Süskind. I’m not going to make a review about these books, but I just want to say that they’re really awesome books and you should totes read them. It goes to show how much time I had to burn throughout the break. I barely had 3 weeks for my break. The first week was spent for EvSems, while I spent the second week locked up in my room in Bacolod. It wasn’t a big deal anyway because I did it by choice. Besides, I’m very clingy to my bed and with my gay, colorful room. Also, I caught the flu…leaving me too lazy to do anything but eat and sleep. It was glorious, I must say. For the last week of sembreak, I had to go back to Manila to take care of some org stuff and some enlistment-gone-wrong-remedies. It’s not exactly restful, but hey, it was fun.
In between some work and hang outs. I had some days in between wherein I just stayed alone in one place and did nothing. It’s the kind of laziness without the boredom…yes, the fantastic kind. I got to do useless things such as rationalizing my actions and life choices. I get a minimum of 10 hours of sleep and I eat everything in sight. Also, I realized that I had the most beautiful problems during the break. Trying to figure out your daily agenda from the moment you wake up is glorious compared to having your whole day set out on a tight schedule. It goes without saying how much I’ll miss my sembreak.
…On the flip side, I’m feeling recharged and ready to take on 2nd sem!
No one understands me.
Then again, it could also be because I do not want to be understood.
Therefore, I do not blame people if they take me the wrong way.
Perhaps I don’t want to be understood.
Today, I decided to shoot again after what felt like ages.
Needless to say, I was really rusty and it’s quite sad to admit I no longer have a clue as to what my style is anymore. I then decided to just go for the vintage-meta-hipster look. …do not ask me what it means.
A lot of lighting improvisations involving a step ladder, a lampshade and an iPad were used…I know it’s cray….
I am spazzing right now….
The Justice League of the Ottoman Empire by Berk Senturk
Constantinople’s last great hope against alien menaces, extra-dimensional beings, giant starfish, and rocket-powered apes, Senturk has adapted the Justice League to fit the Ottoman style of classical art.

So…I’ve been working on one of my final projects for FA…
It’s a brochure about some pre-colonial fun facts in the Philippines. Well…the info I picked out sounded fun to me at least. This is actually geared at high school students, hoping to somewhat enlighten them and engage them about their Philippine roots. lulz…thus, the informal speech you might find inside.
Here’s a sample illustration of a Pintados warrior!….(of course, not in battle garb just to emphasize the tattoos…)
I’m going for the informal/fun style in illustration. How do you think it’s working out? haha
Also, I’m starting to realize that I’m totally not good at illustrating. Ah…existential crisis yet again…..or I just lack some sleep. hehe…
What do you guys think? :)
This is due next week, and I’m hoping to finish this over the weekend so I could study for my finals in other classes. Then again, working on this is making me feel like my little schedule wouldn’t work. haha….Here’s to hoping that I wake up on time later to finish this!
