And like that, he's gone...

...or at least I will be come Sunday 24th, after handing in my dissertation, making and wearing another awesome homemade costume to our End Of Dissertation party and going out with Jane and Joseph for a goodbye drink or something then I will be getting a taxi/train/plane to Schipol Airport and for the first time I think someone will be waiting for me!

So there it is, two hard bound copies, a soft copy and FIVE abstracts!! I also have a CD with it on, it's more bits than an 'In Rainbows' boxset. But of course I think I've used too much on the Letraset white lettering and have only done one spine so far, the other one will be all in capitals!

Meanwhile, I have got back the results for assessment and I got a high 2:2, which was a bit of a shock and will act as a boot up the backside upon my return on the 5th of March. I have storyboarded the Dendrophobia scene and talked with the sound guys at college about underwater mics and recording splashes.

Oh, and I am now 22... I naturally got some (Indiana Jones) LEGO!! and a LEGO Star Wars T-Shirt, as well as two posters, some Pixar DVDs and live collection CDs.

Breda, here I come! x

Nearly over...

...then normal work patterns can resume.

Dissertation (as seen above!) is due in this Friday (22nd) and so at the moment that is the main focus, although if I can fit in an animatic of one scene (Dendrophobia - which I have storyboarded!!) before I leave for Holland on the 24th then that would be a bonus.

We also have the continued organisation of the dissertation party AND final show, which is going slowly but surely, so that's all good.

In other news: I saw 'I Am Legend' last night which was pretty good, with amazing CG and
a few jumpy moments!! and I have the next episode of Lost (4.3) to watch later on as well!!

Oh, and it's my birthday on Tuesday which I'm unsure as to what I will do what with dissertation dominating most of my time unfortunately.

Done and dusted!

The DVD is in, the drinks are waiting and the clothes look great... it can only mean one thing - a whole lot of first AND third years are going to the SU/PONANAs/Waterfront/Mustard/etc to celebrate.

Yesterday I thought about playing with my LEGO and made a swimmer man and later on a bee, so naturally I animated him a little bit, it took a while because I was already getting bored trying to find enough white bricks by this point, but maybe I'll use him again in the future.
