When In Doubt Wear Red. @ Tuesday, October 02, 2012
Crimson, Lust, Scarlet. Three Shades of Red. Red radiates of confidence, energy and spontaneousity. But it could also be aggressive, dominating and quick tempered. How do you see red? To me on a day I'm feeling drained it can make me feel more energetic, but sometimes it does the opposite and makes me feel tired. On of those days that you need sunglasses to even go near a computer.
Today I felt drained, staying up all night to work on an introduction for an IT project, there was a group meeting but that didn't happen as 2/3 of the group was away. Everyone's freaking out about projects, presentations and exams (my first one's in 25 days!) oh and the IT test next week, so there's some people going na. Totally legit reason, stress sick. Spent 2-3hrs trying to write a professional intro and it turned into a story about shopping, and then in the final paragraph there was a link to the case study. That didn't go so well.
I like red, wore a 60s style red shift dress today, and I do believe it made me feel more confident, to some degree. We start the day off by missing the maths lec and help session. That didn't go so well. Arriving at 2.50 I made it to IT on time and had time to change (the IT room is that strange room that's always warmer than the other rooms). Practice access test. I still believe it's unlikely I'll ever use it but meh. Round one, took about 1.5hrs, lots of questions (Austin disapproves). Went to the repeat class, round two took about 15minutes. Totally freaked out the guy on my right, Liam, who wanders in late and wants to know if we started this last week. XD As not everyone comes to class regularly people don't remember who's in the class and who isn't. I ended up helping him with his practice test, which was good, I did need lots of help on round one too. I did round three and left it at that. And Liam ended up asking for contacts (networking-esque), my therapist would be happy, as I find it very difficult to be social and even talk to people.
Best moment of the day:
In other happening I'm slightly annoyed with Austin,
On the weekend I made chocolate truffles ("hello diabetes", George's favourite comment to make when I'm cooking), and perhaps made too much, enough to fill 5-6 noodle boxes. Made them for le beau, as he's back in town for the school holidays (which I don't have) and extra to get feed back, but more about that later. I'll be posting the recipe and pictures too. I gave mr it a box and he says it won't work XD that he's not marking our projects, mr little it aka Austin is. Why does everyone think food is bribery? I still maintain that a computer is marking the project (due in a fortnight) and will pick up that I a. used up the group's word quota b. did dot points instead of paragraphs. Austin isn't being very helpful with the project (I wrote three times the amount required) and he knows that. But as I'm making an effort to be nice to him, I did give him a box too ^^. Looking forwards to feedback on the truffles next week; and possibly even a tiny bit towards the access test.
