Soo... I'm there, I'm alive, I have little to no time and I'm loving it. Can't wait till the classes start tho I should probably get a phone number and maybe even a pillow by then. I've met sooo many awesome people and dang, I wish I had an opportunity to talk to everyone. Along goes a wish remembering names were easier.
Remember me mentioning the idea of a calarts blog/journal? Well, I'm not so sure it's such a good idea anymore. The faculty made us more than aware that whatever we post online is there to be found by our peers, teachers, recruiters... possibly anyone who could ever give us a job or something like that. Also, we'll have some secrets not to be shared and the easiest way not to slip is just not talking about it at all.
I have made a decision not to go and try to censor every single compromising thing I've ever posted or said. I mean... I am a fangirl, yeah - so what? And sure, I don't like some films or games much, but usually there's a pretty good reason for that. So yeah, I've decided to keep doing what I do. I don't want to suddenly go quiet and feel, I don't know, intimidated all the time? My account is my thing and I'm gonna do what I want coz a pirate is free. Also, rum and all. Oh wait...
As for the Calarts experience so far... you know, up until just yeasterday I kept thinking that it was all a joke, that I'm not really supposed to be here... Well, I don't anymore. I'm past thinking that I'm here a year early or that I'm not ready or whatever - I'm here for a reason. I mean, with an acceptance rate of roughly 9% (lower than Harvard, if I may say) there is no room for error.
Oddly enough, I feel like I'm the most chilled-out person considering all the revelations (that weren't really all that new to me) the faculty shared with us yesterday. Like this going online thing, the fact that WE ARE THE MOB and the person sitting right next to us has a big chance of being our co-worker or even an employer at some point. Aaaand the fact that we'll be dying out of sleep deprivation by December. Most people seemed to be really freaked out by this and I was liiiike... "Alright, I expected this." And for some reason I'm not really scared. Oh well, give me some time and ask me then! xD
