becca and tashy.

I babysat the tiny boys for a little while earlier.
Tommy was very interested in my camera - I don't think he'd seen a film camera before as his dad always shoots digitally now and he kept asking why he couldn't see the photo on the back! Makes you realise how redundant film seriously is becoming!
Uni starts again on Monday, although I'm going in on Thursday and Friday to squeeze some more days in. Can't believe it'll all be over so soon. I also need to find some way of displaying my pianos. I thought plinths originally, but they might look a bit too museum-y. Also I'm not sure there would really be room for lots of them... I could suspend them from the ceiling but that would involve having to possibly drill into them or something and wouldn't be so easy to put up when the exhibition moves to London. The other idea I had was just to put them on white cardboard boxes. People will just have to understand that the boxes are irrelevant and purely there to put them on. They're far too small to sit on the floor... Hmmm... daddy suggested a table but I'm not quite sure that would look right, plus it'd have to be THE perfect table and I'm running out of time now to be honest. I did think once of sticking them on the wall but some of them are grand pianos so that would be a little tricky. Ohhhhh man, the more I think about it the more I freak out. A lot.

i love sargent.

soo. things to do once graduated:

2. try a spoonful of weetabix
3. redecorate my room
4. learn to drive.
5. acquire a negative scanner
6. have a rest
7. stop panicking about state of health, prospect of nice husband, children and house etc.
8. learn to cook more than three things.

i'm sure i could find more than 8 things! that is quite depressing.

i have the travelling bug at the moment. i keep thinking of places i want to go, and looking up flights even though i can't go anywhere until i've finished and it's so expensive! would be awfully nice though. i really hate flying, but at the same time i want to do more of it as it's such a sense of accomplishment when you get to the other end and you're somewhere new. it's fear at the same time though, fear of something different, somewhere you don't know.

i took my site down for a while. i don't know why really, just felt odd about it. somehow i prefer this whole blog thing. mainly because it takes out a lot of the work for you which i know is totally lazy of me but a) i'm exhausted at the moment and b) i have so much other stuff to be doing. i've always liked the diary approach anyway.

ooh, am a little stressed. I was fine, until I had a technical chat with the tutors today. they kind of mentioned things I'd conveniently forgotten, like loss of quality when you blow things up/have a multiscreen composite thing. argh. hmm so I may have to present a bit differently than I thought. which is alright I guess, only may potentially end up taking up lots of room which we don't really have, especially in London. wishing majorly i had just got prints. i like what i've done, i'm just having a bit of a heart attack about how exactly to present it when there are seemingly so many technical things against me along with lack of space.

at least i have my pianos. and my cutting from the newspaper. Just need to get the frame for that tomorrow and that's pretty much done. then over easter I can continue to panic about how to show my video.


fun day yesterday though!
