double kill ヽ(`д´)ノ!  

I finally got my A-levels grades back, and I did really, really, really unexpectedly well! I managed to snag 4A's for Literature, Math, General Paper and gasp, Art! Yes, "Sub Rosa" got an A! /sobs
I was bottoming my art class for prelims and my predicted grade was something around C, so I was really demoralised and wasn't expecting anything so encouraging. ; v ; I think I even wound up scowling at my civics teacher in an attempt to give a neutral, unafraid, emotionless face, so much that he looked at my grades and said, "what's with that face" lmao. Oh dear, I'm really bad at nerves, even when I'm not really that nervous. ;;;

On the not-so-cool side, I got a B for Economics buuu, though I suppose it's a huge improvement from the subpass during prelims rofl. Unexpectedly, I also got a Distinction for H3 Art which kills me dead because I always thought I was stupid at the contemporary art world and its issues.

Oh I can either thank the British or thank the great ol' Bell Curve God, I'm just glad everything turned out okay. But most of all, I'm really really thankful for my grades in Art - it's almost like I'm finally getting the green light from some divine being out there that it's okay, it's okay that I want to pursue art! Even if I'm lacking in experience and left struggling when pushed headfirst in deep waters. Somehow, I can still surface to breathe and realise that everything is going to be alright. Now, I intend to apply for some government scholarships and I'm really hoping that they'll be able to help me out with my university fees. The going is gonna be real tough financially, both in the case of studying abroad or locally, and I hope to help my family out as much as possible, since they're finally rather supportive of my unconventional career choice. :">
Literature is also one of my greatest loves, so I'm so utterly glad I did well in it as well. That intense six weeks of studying after coursework was over paid off, both for my art comrade van and myself. uuu life is awesome.

I went out with my art class for Korean barbeque after results collection to celebrate! I've never had anything like it and omg it was so heavenly.

rofl my blog is becoming some kind of gourmet noms journal, please bear with me! B-but what can I say, it was really delicious. ; u ; I'm not the sort of person who enjoys Korean food generally - I can't seem to enjoy kimchi-containing dishes despite trying so many times - so this was really different! (・∀・) I could also delude myself into thinking that I could cook okay who am I kidding.

More surprises, I also recently received the acceptance email from the Illustration faculty of the School of Visual Arts in New York! Not one of my top school choices, but it's extremely heartening to know ~someone~ wants me! I don't know what possessed them to make such a decision, but it's so cool I just can't. I even have a school account and everything ahaha, I tried logging in for kicks and I felt all grown-up and all. /lame ヽ(´―`)ノ

To celebrate for both wins, I ordered the NO.6 TOI8 ARTBOOK ASDF;ALKSDJF oh goodness I've been lusting after it for so long it's rather scary. To avoid the delivery charges and meet the minimum order, I went ahead to order a Kimi to Boku artbook too! I-I just know this artbook addiction is going to be fatal to my wallet and I. ;;; but I'm too much of a visual animal. orz rofl I'm usually such a miser to myself, but when I finally do treat myself, I think I go a little out of hand. (laughs)


On another note, a few days before results release, I went to Benita's house with a few friends the other day to burn stress by eating sushi and doing random stuff (skateboarding, I realised, is something I seriously want to learn). We played these small dolls called Sylvanian, with all these tiny dollhouses, and teacups, bedcovers, pens, everything and I really liked them! We made morbid stories of them and obsessively arranged every accessory in an orderly fashion... then knocked them over when our characters got drunk and got into fights and such. It was wonderful, and pretty much an imagination junkie's heaven!

Mama bunny visiting papa bunny though in reality there was domestic violence involved.

Just a dinosaur playing a piano, no biggie.

A Teletubbian (that's a religious cult, okay) altar in the central room of the house.
one must bow twice on the mat in front of the idols, eat a banana, and cut himself with
the (miniature) scissors placed under the mat. Σ(゜д゜|||)

I hope you haven't decided to defriend me from my stupidity yet. HAHA oh dear. m ( _ _ )m
I do realise that I'm starting to regress into these small childhood indulgences that I missed out on in the past! It's the perfect sort of subtle escapism that I need once in a while.

SYLVANIAN FAMILIES ♥ I loved them as a kid! Truth be told I still love them now, but they're so expensive here! $30 for a family of 4.

Korean barbeque is delious and heavenly too.

LOL CINDY I SERIOUSLY LOVE READING YOUR COMMENTS. i don't know why, but they always always make me grin like an idiot. i think it's your wordchoice lmao, ilu so much. ♥

thank you so much bb! i'm so glad it paid off, i think i'm really lucky! i had some friends who worked really hard too but it didn't translate to grades for them. i'm so thankful ; v ;
HEHE WHAT HIGH ACHIEVING, HEHE. LMAO LOVE CALLS OH ILU CINNAMON. i'm so honoured i just can't ; A ; i really hope the rest of my school apps give me positive replies too! /crosses fingers repeatedly as;dfkjasdf

we had 9 people sharing a 6 person meal (to accomodate poor people like me sobs) so i only got to eat about two pieces of beef, some fish, and a little more chicken! but they all tasted so good, i really liked the chicken!!

LOL i-i-i knew you would be able to relate!! ; w ; i think they're freaky too. i always thought they looked like aliens in some tight jumpsuit... not to mention the baby sun is also another source of horror.
