Abiguous flight is ambiguous. Also, creative title is creative.

So I decided it’d be a good idea to fly elsewhere for the weekend.  While it’s not a vacation type of trip, I’d rather not disclose anything about it, but I’ll be away for a few days.  Meaning: I’ll miss a Japanese quiz for tomorrow that I can’t make-up for later, I have to deferr my Econ midterm for Monday morning (MORNING I REPEAT MORNING), missing the Video Game Developers Association Icebreaker tomorrow that I’ve been looking forward to for WEEKS, and no Batman Arkham City on the weekend :(  In fact I’m missing the TED talk too.  Excuse me while I go set up my chair and noose.

That rant out of the way, I suppose the moral of the story (because occassionally I think Blog Squad posts should have one?), prepare way in advance if you know you’re going to miss school, especially a day where a lot of things are happening.  I know everyone knows this but I can’t stress it enough.  In high school, when we missed something we could make up for it literally whenever, with no penalties, although the teacher would probably put down you absence in their revenge journal or something (I’ve wanted to start one for ages but that’s like making a Death Note–you’d probably get arrested).  So here, it’s either “do it ASAP on Monday” or “I’m sorry you can’t do it then”.  I really have to go away so there’s not much I can do, but it’s kind of frustrating at the same time.  Of course I knew that I could have my Econ midterm deferred before actually buying plane tickets but finding out the fun stuff I’d miss too is like jamming a spork in my eye.

Also, I have discovered this: while my writing is apparently horrible to my Creative Writing teacher, those quizzes are easy.  If you ever take Intro to Creative Writing, just make sure to go to class.  You don’t really need to bring all of your brain either, just a good sense of humour, creativity, common sense, and laptop to copy everything down.  Mindlessly copy everything for the quiz.  And all shall be well.  Also, fake crappy poems on quizzes are amazing.  They involve large squids… and elephants.

Also, NaNoWriMo isn’t too bad, I’m kind of behind on writing but I’m at 2,203 words at the moment so at least I’m not still at 933.  My story makes no sense, but at least I’ve kept from editing… which is harder than writing itself, sometimes @_@  Thanks to those who gave me encouragement, and to all of you who are tackling it this year, good luck to you too! :D

Before I leave for the weekend, I know this is completely irrelevant but then again it’s my blog, where my posts make no sense and I make no sense, so really weren’t not breaking tradition here or anything.  It’s called How to Steal Like an Artist, and I liked it for the points that it raises.  I’ve been going through the blues recently about my artwork so I tried to find some motivational things online these days (demotivational posters do count because they’re friggin’ hilarious).  Asides from one that was crudely called “The Complete Guide To Not Giving A ****” which actually helped me realize I have a lot of self-consciousness issues, this one was something I was happy to stumble upon, so if you’re an artist, check it out:

And that’s all, folks.  I’ll let NotGoogle+ finish this off for me (CollegeHumour, bless your face):  NotGoogle+
