Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’…

And random stuff about Crit…

Crit today was a relief. Azman did a great job on the character drawings – Ming Jin found them interesting, and Ayman actually smiled. Laughed, even. But that was because he found the first character we showed them bore a resemblance to Arsene Wenger. We didn’t notice until he said so. Hahah…

Before the afternoon session of Crit started, one of my classmates, Refa, whose group was the first one to present in the afternoon, was terribly nervous. Well, most of us usually are that way before Crit, but he was very clearly jittery. Seeing two plastic bottles on the table in the front, he picked them up and hid them somewhere in the back, which drew chuckles from the rest of us in class. (You see, Mr Ayman has a rather scary tendency to pick up whatever’s conveniently at hand and flinging it at the projector screen if he’s seriously displeased with your presentation. He doesn’t do it all the time or very often, but he has done it before, and that is enough of a warning to everyone.)

Nadia and I got somewhat convinced that the Beta FA students can’t read. There was a notice stuck on the FA studio door labelled BETA FA STUDENTS, informing them that the venue for their class was changed to the DM studio (since us Deltas were having Crit). When I arrived at the studio, I saw the notice and managed to read the heading at a glance – and I was walking pretty fast too. Buuuut… These Beta “kids” (no offense meant, yea) seemed to be completely oblivious to the notice. From the time I arrived at the studio – at about 1.40PM – until it was almost my group’s turn to present (2.30), I counted at least eight instances when Beta students walked right into the studio only to stop and stare at us before suddenly realising we weren’t their classmates and hurriedly leaving. Eight instances doesn’t mean only eight students. Half the time there were two or three of them together. It was kinda funny, and yet, you have to wonder: Don’t they see that notice on the door that’s clearly addressed to them? *scratches head*
