It wasn’t as big as an event as I initially thought it would be. But we did get some random free things (mostly junk) and got to meet a lot of very interesting people! Checked out the student gallery and purchased my locker (which has a messed up lock and a dent; why do I always get the horrible lockers?)
Hmm… I’m not so sure about art school. I’m starting to think it’s not practical enough. I came initially to get a good education in photography, and it’s good to have a strong foundation in fine arts as well. I also used to think people who didn’t pursue their passions were just weak and cowardly, but now I’m also starting to think they’re probably the smart ones – because responsibility comes first. Probably should’ve thought of that before. But let’s give a few months and see how it goes.
We then headed off campus for other adventures. There were other activities at school, but I didn’t take any pictures. Hopefully they’ll be uploaded to the university website soon though, and I can share them. 😄
Also discovered a pet shop in the basement of Dragon City Mall. They sold Peking Puppies, mini turtles, lizards, fish, etc. I had never seen an actual Peking Dog before – they really do look Chinese, hahahaha!
Went to Jack Astro’s Bar & Grill (the last time I’m eating out). $10 bought an enormous soup, garlic breads, and salads – so it’s definitely pay-for-what-you-get. There were only two soup options: Beer and Cheddar or Chicken and Tequila. I had never heard of alcohol soup before.
We sat outside on the balcony which made it a nice experience.
I went to a little historic house/gallery myself on the way of going home. I really like cold colors contrasting with warm colors (i.e. orangey-red sunset with a blue telephone pole). There’s something about it that gives me this unexplainable feeling… like a dream or something long forgotten.
