The Tale of Last Monday: Fanta coffee, an insulting essay, and good looking nipples!


How's it goin? 

Last week was a pretty good week for me, so for every day this week, I'm gonna tell you what I did last week. Won't that be exciting?
Probably not, but at least it gives me something to write about.


We have a new timetable at school which started today, this means that I am in at 9am on a Monday morning! 

That's mental, mental chicken oriental! 

I have mentioned before about me not being a morning person. So I can see Monday mornings being somewhat challenging. The class first thing on a monday is single camera production. It is basically an opportunity to work on our various projects we have to do throughout the year. However for the next few weeks we are getting back to basics lessons on the camera's, while also learning to use some of the new equipment. I am very much looking forward to this as we have some new camera equipment which will hopefully help me get some really sexy shots for my projects this year. (By "sexy shots" I mean nice looking shots, nothing pornographic.) 

However, for the first hour of class on this particular Monday morning, our course leader took us through all the theory behind lighting and a few camera techniques. Now we did all of this a year ago, but 98% of it has been forgotten. And by the time break time rolled around my brain had turned to mush.
It was during a much needed coffee break that myself and KP invented something amazing. 


It's a combination of Coffee and Fanta.
Here's a video documenting this great occasion!

Although we are in at 9am on Mondays, we are lucky enough to be done by 12:30. Meaning the rest of the day is ours. That's not too shabby. I didn't skive tho. I am attempting to turn over a new leaf and be as productive as possible at all times.

After class I went to the library and caught up on some work, I wrote another one of my famous essays. This essay was a self evaluation of my multi camera assessment, (The 10:03 News, You can view it HERE if you want). 

In the past I will admit to taking the piss slightly with some essays, this one I think was one of my more serious attempts. Here's a small section, in which I discuss the crew assigned to my multi-cam assessment.

I deliberately chose people I knew I could trust to do a good job. Due to the limited size of my production and the amount of people in the class, this did mean that some of my classmates were left with nothing to do during my assessment. This is partly down to the large class size, and in the case of some people, me not having any faith in them due to their immense stupidity.

I'm nothing if not honest.

After writing this essay I had a discussion with one of my tutors about the script I have written for my main feature. He likes it. So it's a go! I don't wanna say anymore on that for now, but rest assured you will be hearing more about it in due course. I am sure you are sitting on the edge of your seat with anticipation. Careful, you might fall off.

On Monday night I met up with Laura for a Starbucks. As we sipped on our latte's, she tried to convince me that her new office has a ghost. The new office was recently converted from an old pub and apparently there were times in the pub when the lights would come on all by themselves. And sometimes it would get really cold for ten minutes and then inexplicably warm up again. 

I put forward the theory that it was dodgy electrics and broken heating. 

She did not seem impressed and insists that there is a ghost. It's the only logical explanation.

Laura also entertained me with the story of how one of her friends nearly burnt down his house while drunk, as he was trying to dry his boxer shorts in the oven and fell asleep. Apparently the fire brigade were not impressed.

Also while in Starbucks, I received this text from KP.

Which was nice, I've never given much thought to the appearance of my nipples before. 

Tune in tomorrow for.....

The Tale Of Last Tuesday:
 Annoying Avid, a poor mans toaster, and the greatest t-shirt in the universe!

This epic tale of annoying computers, university application drama, and awesome t-shirts shall be unleashed to the world tomorrow, at the crack of noon. 

That's All For Now

Until Next Time

Have A Nice
