My First Day in College

First term started three weeks ago so I’ve been a bit busy lately… being a junior and all. It’s funny whenever I see a group of frosh (it’s very easy to spot them since they always travel in packs… yes, like wolves) I’m always reminded at how I was like two years ago. Have I ever told you how my first day in college went? Well… I went to class on time but when I entered the classroom, everyone was already there and they seemed to be having a lively discussion. It was really puzzling and even more so when I noticed the students looked a lot older than me which made me feel tiny and insecure, thinking everyone in college look so mature while I look so young. :( I looked around for empty seats but there weren’t any left so this guy offered his chair and sat on the concrete floor instead. It was really embarrassing but I managed to say “thank you” meekly. The prof continued talking about house rules when she suddenly mentioned something about language. It was only then that I realized I made a huge mistake. I accidentally went inside the wrong classroom… my subject was supposed to be Algebra!! PANIC O_O I immediately grabbed the attendance sheet from my seatmate and crossed out my name. When the prof dismissed the class, I was the first person to head for the door. :))

Flux Exhibit & Dinner at Persia Grill

Last April 8 (I knooow, this post is long overdue! D:), I invited my friends Biboy and Kat to go to the Flux exhibit at school where artworks by graduating MMA students were displayed. It was their first time to actually go inside the SDA building since they’re from different schools. Yes, outsiders were allowed to go in and that’s like a once in a blue moon thing in CSB. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to blog about and invite you guys to the SDA Annuale 2011 D: *oopsy* let me make it up to you! I have a small surprise at the end of this post. ;)

But wait, what is the SDA Annuale anyway? The Annuale is the first degree show of the School of Design & Arts (SDA) of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. The two-week show is a multi-sensory display of the collection of best student works and projects from the 13 programs of the SDA. It will feature theatrical performances, multi-media presentations, music festivals, film and animation screenings, exhibit displays and installations, and fashion shows. The Annuale opens on March 30 and will run up to April 13. - CSB’S Facebook page

I’m happy to say that I was able to participate and become a part of the SDA Annuale 2011, although just a tini wini part of it. :3 I modeled for a friend’s photography exhibit at the 11th floor. To the person who asked this, I still don’t have copies of the photos yet so Kat and I just posed beside it (photo above) and mimicked my face haha. An ukil I made out of rubber foam for my Philippine Art and Design class + my huge, about 2-3 feet tall, self portrait, oil painting for my Color Rendering class were put on display at the 5th floor. I haven’t brought the canvass home yet (how am I supposed to bring that in the LRT?!) and I don’t have a photo of it. But thanks to the SDA talent for making a video which you can view here (it’s on 0:05-0:07) and for blogging about the Not Your Usual Portraits Exhibit organized by Sir Padilla here.



So there, I know my works aren’t really that awesome. I didn’t even know that they’d be included in the Annuale until, to my surprise, I saw them displayed already. Seeing them made me promise to myself that I’d put more effort and reserve more time doing art/school stuff. But there were really a lot of beautiful artworks (wala talagang sinabi yung akin haha) made by my schoolmates in different mediums, digital or traditional, paintings, sketches, photographs, clothes, furniture, videos etc. I wish you were there to see it for yourself. It was definitely a fresh break from the boring, white walls of SDA we see everyday. Thanks to the Annuale, Benildeans were able to display their artworks around the building for everyone to see and show their skills and talents as artists.

After the Flux exhibit we had dinner at the newly opened Persia Grill at UM with Nikita (who changed her hairstyle again… unicorn!). We ordered kebabs yum~ and went home afterwards. :) So the “surprise” I have for you guys is not really that big of a deal but if you’d like to watch Wrangler’s show at the Philippine Fashion Week on May 13, 6:30 pm please email me your full name and blog url (if you don’t have a blog, just attach a photo of you wearing your most stylish outfit) at co.jesrhel@ymail.com. Due to limited seats, not everyone will get invites, sorry. :( Looking forward to see you there! ;) (thank you so much :> to my friend Sam for this, btw)

Thank God hell week is almost over, if you’ve been following me on Twitter I’m sorry you had to put up with my midnight tweet rants.

So there, after this week I can finally blog about your post requests (to those who sent q’s in my formspring), fill you in with mundane, utterly boring details about my life lol and post outfit photos. ♥ By the way who’s going to the Latagan! this Saturday?

I had a really long day; I’m tired from shooting, from holding the flash, from doing hair/makeup and for going up and down the stairs but this shot made me feel like I did something good today.
This is Jesrhel Co, my barbie doll for the day. She was such a darling. More photos from this shoot soon. I’m too lazy to blog about it right now. <3

Here’s a photo from a very awesome shoot today. :) Hands down to Claire for being the photographer/make-up artist/hair stylist/art director. She was amazing! :) My block mate Annie asked me if I can model for their magazine project and since I was free last Thursday, I said yes. Turns out their group leader, Claire happens to know Kisty as well because they both participated in a fashion show held a few months ago… small world! :o  

PS. I hope you guys don’t get tired of my photo shoot reblogs. I’m terribly busy with school lately (read: pre-finals week). I’m super thankful for friends and classmates. They help me with my Technical drawing plates, I model, style and put make up for their Fotogra classes. What’s not to like? haha. I promise to blog soon. :3

I woke up late this afternoon and saw my classmates have already posted their next term scheds on Facebook. Panic surged through me, I totally forgot about it. I logged in to our school&#8217;s student info system hoping that what the registrar told me yesterday wasn&#8217;t true&#8230; but sadly, it was. He told me I didn&#8217;t enlist but I did, I even have a witness. I&#8217;m very sure it was the system&#8217;s fault and well&#8230; partly mine I guess, because I didn&#8217;t double-check. Now I have to do everything manually and did I mention there&#8217;s a 2k peso penalty fee? :( 

Anyway, the photo up there is our first try at following Michelle Phan&#8217;s Charming Scarf Braid tutorial. You can see our 2nd try here. Trixie used a yellow ribbon because we couldn&#8217;t find a scarf yet. Which do you like better 1st (yellow ribbon) or 2nd (blue scarf)? :)

my everyday school bag :) a really big bag for a small girl. 

This was taken during my Desktop publishing class earlier. After class, I ate super late lunch with Nikita at our school caf. Kimbap~ + chopsticks fail and girly talk :3 I easily spotted her because of her red hair! :&gt; Which reminds me&#8230; I should really color my hair again soon since it&#8217;s starting to look lifeless. D: Midterms week is almost over btw! I just have to do my part on making a superhero costume for my Philippine art and design class. At least, I&#8217;m not gonna be the one who&#8217;ll wear it for the exhibit, that would be so awkward. :))

Desncon Reflection #2 & #3

This is for school :)

Desncon Reflection #1

(color pens & paper)

1.Based on the class exercise, how different were your visual cues from your partner? Was it slightly the same or totally different? Describe the similarities and differences
My visual cues were totally different from my partner Bella. She based her ideas for the illustrations on the literal interpretation of the songs while I based my drawings on the figurative sense. Like for instance, in the song To Sir with Love, she drew 2 girls and then a guy sitting on a teacher’s table while in the song Fireworks by Katy Perry, I drew a girl with colorful swirls in the background which symbolized as “the light” a.k.a. personal potential. But we made our totally different visual cues work together. She suggested ideas that prevented me from going over-the-top- pretentious-abstract and I related my ideas that helped our illustrations become more metaphorical.

2.How do you think would differences in interpretation affect you as a design student/designer? Would it be better if we had the same interpretation for things? Why or why not?
Differences in interpretation affect me as a design student/designer because if people misinterpret then my design wouldn’t be effective. As a design student/designer, it is very important for me to be able to create a design that has a solid, well-developed concept to avoid misinterpretations. Yes and no… yes, because having the same interpretation for things, we can successfully communicate to everyone what we are aiming to project/our design’s objective. And if we are working with a partner, we can strengthen our similar creative ideas. No, because having different interpretations can help the design be dynamic and complex. One’s totally different visual cues can help us to think out of the box which may improve the totality of our design.

PS. This is for my design & conceptualization class and yes, my prof’s gonna read my blog! D: She designs for Belle de Jour planners and Unilever btw (according to her FB account) cool right? *uyy… sipsip* haha!

School is keeping me preoccupied. I finally have a solution to my 600 peso worth ruler problem a.k.a. the T square dilemma. Who in their right mind would spend a ridiculous amount of money just for a freaking ruler *rant* well… except, of course, architects or archi. students. I’d rather buy new books, shoes, make up, food, clothes, bags and the list goes on, with that money. Anyway, the solution? (thanks Moe!) T squares are now available for borrowing at our school’s 10th floor equipment room (they let us borrow stuff like DSLRs, camera equipments, pen tablets etc.) :D I just wish I’ll find a solution for my hatred of the subject. I don’t like technical drawing… not entirely because I’m not very good at it (I’m just below average-average) but because it’s annoying. I need to have a lot of patience with that subject and my paranoia of straight-lines-not looking-straight is not helping at all. :|

*that’s my wooden bedroom door in the background btw :)

Taken by Biboy, Kat&#8217;s camera, 1/25/11&#160;
We played Tekken &amp; Rockband with Nikita during my 3 hour break yesterday&#8230; will blog about it tomorrow :) I&#8217;m wearing this pair here btw. I didn&#8217;t bother to have the strap restitched&#8230; until a random cobbler near school offered to fix it (that lolo near Zentea). :D

Posting this random photo from Bonnie &amp; Clyde&#8217;s first collection because I don&#8217;t have any photos to post. I already sold my digital camera last Saturday! :) It got reserved the same day I posted about it and on top of that, there were still a few people asking if it&#8217;s really reserved already. I just wish the sales of our first collection would be that fast :)) I met up with Zeti (buyer and a fellow Lasallian) at Starbucks Taft last Saturday. She&#8217;s so nice &amp; sweet! She even wanted to have our photo taken by her boyfriend but I just found out the camera doesn&#8217;t work without a memory card, oopsy. D: 

My first week of third term went pretty much okay. I thought I was going to be friendless since I didn&#8217;t sign up with the same classes most of my friends did, not that I didn&#8217;t want to. Encoding is a battlefield and I lost this term. Just imagine the horror, I have two 6-9&#160;pm classes&#8230; I commute alone by the way plus, the streets where I reside is quite scary. And my boyfriend wouldn&#8217;t be able to accompany me home every Mondays and Tuesdays because his classes end early. :| Anyway, I like my profs this term, most of them aren&#8217;t the chill lang, laidback type of profs which I had these past few terms (and that&#8217;s really bad for me since I can get very irresponsible). :)) Verdict on my classes: Technical drawing - Can I just say expensive? I&#8217;m still not willing to shell out 600 pesos for a ruler! Desktop publishing - I think I&#8217;m going to love this class! Our prof already told us how our final project will be: we&#8217;re gonna make our own magazines. :D He also liked the logo I drafted last meeting. :) Design &amp; Conceptualization - Our prof looks like a student D: Profes1 - boring -__- Sound design, Philippine art &amp; design, NSTP - I didn&#8217;t attend hehe, first day naman e! :P
