Deadlines deadlines..

Here's my second Digital Media short film which I handed in yesterday - a commercial for Pepsi. Or rather, a spoof commercial :) Had loads of fun making it - maybe it shows?

Tomorrow is the deadline for our Print Media artbooks, so I'm sitting here scanning and Photoshopping like a maniac. But I love it! Tomorrow is also the deadline for the Print Media moringa report, however, and the photography submission for the Photo Media Folio. Thursday the completed Folio is to be handed in, together with the Artist Statement and the last photography assignment - AND the final Unspeakable Beauty essay. GAH! Another coffee, please!

Farewell party

This Saturday is my farewell party.. can you believe it's been 4 months already?? Depressing. I don't want to leave - I love this place :(

Spent the morning in court with the assault-case.. Met the girl who did it, and the second she saw me she burst into tears and couldn't stop apologizing. I gave her a hug and told her it was ok and that I really hope she's off the drugs. She is off the drugs now apparently, but she's facing 15 months.. I know I shouldn't, but I really do feel sorry for her. She has been abused in so many different ways her entire life, and although it doesn't change the fact that she has to take responsibility for what she's done, it does mean that I now have the possibility of making a difference in her life.

I've spoken to her lawyer and told them I'm willing to go to mediation. I honestly don't think jail is the best option for her in the state she's in - it would probably just be even more detrimental. I'd rather see her go to rehab and try to change her life around.. The police, however, are definitely not keen on that idea. They want her in jail, period. For that reason, I'm writing a Statement now that we'll send them - seeing as I'm the complainant in this case, surely what I want should be worth something?

This is a really difficult situation which will end up drastically changing this girl's life in one way or another. Please cross your fingers and keep me in your thoughts..

Heavy heart

Chris, my lovely. They played your song at Ric's last night.. and it totally broke my heart. I'm on the other side of the world, doing everything I can to forget the pain, but still everything reminds me of you. Then when I got home, I saw someone had uploaded an old video of you dancing onto Facebook, and I couldn't help but smile from beginning to end - what perfect timing.. It was just the lifter I needed.

This coming Friday it would have been your birthday.. But instead of letting myself get miserable, I've decided we're going to go out, have some drinks for you, and go dancing.. I know you'd have loved it ;)

I love and miss you, my friend <3
