Toni's been working out in Cornwall! Claire's still learning.
Everyone Loves Satan Claire has abducted our hearts!

All The Way From The Bonnie Isles!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey guys! So after re-setting my password after being able to forget it in the space of a week, and after following all the links and terms and conditions and blah dee blah I finally managed to find my way here!

I guess I've been keeping in contact with a couple of you guys over facebook but this feels nicer, I like it here in this little corner of the internet, so I guess I'll let you all know here how it's been going here across the atlantic.

Well, Chelsea gave me a lowdown of her general schedual (i.e.: 5 animation assigmants, 2-way dialogues :O:O:O:O:O!!!) and I don't know whether to be envious or not. For the next three weeks I've to animate an 8-10 second sting for the eca grad show in June, attend one two-hour lecture once a week on the history of animation (including a talk on anime in week 4, woop woop!) a four hour life drawing class and... that's it. I feel rather redundant, I have more free time than I know what to do with and no Darran-like tutors to fill my little head with fantastic animation knowledge. Granted I've lots of time to hang out with my friends here but I do kinda miss that desperately full schedual I had back at Emily Carr. And all you guys as well :(
Chelsea told me of the people in her colab group, it made me a wee bit sad cause I would love to have been in amongst you all for that :(

But its not all bad, the sting is fun to do and I have the time to enjoy doing it and at the end of the day its good to be home. Still, you guys gotta keep me in the loop, so we can compare footnotes and all that jazz! Oh and Toni, you gotta let me know how the deep south is treating you :P

Thats about all Ive got to update you guys with just now, you all have fun and dont stress too hard!

Toni is dead.

WHERE ARE YA? SRSLY?

So TONI. Sterling, Steph, Chels, Carmen and I are in a group for Collab. Anim. Promises to be a fun tiem, and we're all super excited about it. I can't wait to see what this will turn out like, because i've never been excited for an assignment like this before.

Also. I gots R4, Toni. And Steph and I played Crystal Chronicles together and it was superfuns. Steph was tanking it up as the swordsie, and I was shooting arrows, sometimes at her.

You need to make a Euro Post soon.

Also. We miss you.

I am trying to get Claire into this (she has gmail now) but she doesn't have blogger. Let's fix that! We all miss her =(

AND SO ends my tangents, except that I was smitten with the idea of anim.student fighting character sprites, but also that I remembered I owed you anim.student tactics game sprites. But whatev yos, whatevs. How bout you say something here first, homes.

...AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

This giant (8 foot?) snowman appeared mysteriously outside my house, and I didn't even build it.

IS EVERYBODY EXCITED FOR SCHOOL TOMORROW?! At least there's no screening for Animation History scheduled. Or do you think class will be cancelled due to snow?

Oh- and Toni, it's about time you make a post about your adventuresome flight and snow-less new home.
