The Sunday Currently, Volume 12

R E A D I N G  Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. I honestly couldn’t put the book down. It’s one of the lightest and feel good stories I’ve read in a while. I like it more than Eleanor and Park.
W R I T I N G  some good stuff on my planners.
L I S T E N I N G  to nothing. Wow. That’s a first!
T H I N K I N G  of making it right with my mother/parents.
S M E L L I N G  trying my best to…I can smell clean sheets which I changed yesterday and the smell of a freshly laundered shirt even after a whole day of wearing it.
W I S H I N G  I could turn back time.
W E A R I N G  my “Spread the Love” shirt (how fitting!) and a comfy pair of shorts you buy for Php50 in Greenhills or in this bazaar in Taytay.
L O V I N G  my new laptop where I am currently typing this entry and where I typed the last 2-3 entries. I’m also loving the fact that there are such things as portable Photoshop applications!
W A N T I N G  this new job so bad and the Jenny Ofill book! I saw someone on my feed today who has them (2 books of the author, apparently). They must have them in NBS or Fullybooked or Powerbooks already! Keeping my fingers crossed!
N E E D I N G  to make ammends.
F E E L I N G  awful. The worst part is, today’s Valentine’s Day.

Cliché

I was really hoping I could do another collage for this other topic our instructor gave us for our homework, SOULMATES.

It took me days conceptualizing and thinking of ideas on what images to include and how I would like it to look as a whole. Indeed, like what she told us, digital collage isn’t as easy as it sounds.

I put the idea to rest for a few days and cleared my head before deciding to have another go at it today. I reopened the draft I saved and started adding some of the free images she gave us (as promised) on to it. Suddenly, ideas started pouring in. Before I know it, I was getting sucked out of the creative block.

So yaaay! I made another one just in time for Valentine’s day!

Paris. Cloud 9. Guy on his knees. Sea of flowers. It is exactly what it looks like. No hidden meanings, just one heck of a good, old cliché.

I wish I could make something not as obvious though. I’d like to be one of those collage artists who ever so brilliantly puts 3 images together and that’s it. Message comes through.

I, on the other hand love sprinkling too many images in one collage, making it seem like an amateur’s work. Wait what?! I am an amateur! 😛

Kidding aside, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Remember what the Beatles say/sing, All you need is love!

and

“Tis better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all.”
