Tick-tock (tick-tock)

I haven't been posting here since February started; don't worry guys, I'm not dead yet, just really busy. My average sleeping time for the past few weeks have gone down to teeny 3 hours - if I'm allowed to sleep at all. GYAHAHAHA, again, don't worry I'm not gonna rant here. This month is making me grow up exponentially. I am forced to learn and undergo new things in life- which is very exciting, fulfilling and tiring at the same time. I am also forced to become true friends with caffeine, energy drinks and 'determination to resist sleeping.

So what happened Arlet?

1. Making video clips

Okay so I'm taking Audio-visual communication this semester and it's so fun because we always get to make 5 minute clips or whatever. Yes, it's only for 5 minutes but the making of it is more than 24 hours including conceptualization, shooting and editing (especially if you're not allowed to shoot in the place that you have chosen) besides that, my teammates and I have different schedule so it's difficult to set a time for us to meet.

Here is a link for what we have made: http://vimeo.com/19884688

2. Cosplay Photoshoot

Sure this is not a school requirement or anything, but this is my hobby- I'll make room for it, even if that means I have to cut on my sleeping, eating and even my shower time.

Here is a sample photo from the shoot:

For the other photos from the shoot, here is the link: Hetalia Cosplay photoshoot

3. I was having driving lessons (got my driver's license already! YAY!- will post a separate blog on that)

4. I am tutoring again :)) but not always, just when I feel like I have the time.

5. JOBHUNTING! (internship actually, but, I feel like it is job hunting already)

This is actually the highlight of the first half of February, everyone in my batch is applying for companies that they'd like to work for as an intern. Well what I did was to collaborate with my friends. First, we scavenged the internet to look for our prospected companies. Then we called them and asked if they accept interns or if they have any internship programs.

Sample conversation with different companies:

Me: Hi, I'm Arlet from (blah blah blah) do you accept undergraduate interns?
HR: We will find out
Me: ... Ah okay, thanks!

Me: Hi, I'm Arlet from (blah blah blah) do you accept undergraduate interns?
HR: Ah wait, I'll ask my supervisor... 
BEEP BEEP BEEP, line busy (pwede naman kasing sabihin na hindi diba?, babaan daw ba ako?!!) THIS HAPPENED THRICE, why do you do that professionals?

I finished paying for my laptop, so no more credit card balance for me, YAY! and I just learned how to use photoshop, audacity and movie maker (will be studying how to use premiere elements and illustrator) How cool is this month. 

Learn. Live. Love. Laugh!
