School of Visual Arts’ (SVA) catalogs

A package from the post office was delivered to my house 2 days ago. I was not expecting anything because.. well it’s a long story, it’s best that you read all about it here.

For the TLDR people out there, here’s the gist of that post: EVERYTHING that I receive from the post office (from online shopping, or things sent by friends, things I’m not even suppose to pay for), gets held up in the customs department of our post office here and whenever I try to claim it.. they always charge me if not twice, thrice the value of the item. Customs fees, tax, and other miscellaneous bullshit fees. If they can’t get any money for whatever stuff I have there, they won’t deliver it — and considered that it’s “missing” or “got lost in transit”. I think it has something to do w/ my name, because other people’s mail gets delivered straight to their house! I asked my friends whose post office is the same as mine. That’s really unfair.

#Tuhog Symposium (DLSU Manila)

In my entire stay at CSB during my college years, I can count the number of times that I have visited our sister school, DLSU. Now that’s not exactly a good thing because that only means that the reason why I can count the number of times I’ve been there is because I haven’t visited that much at all!

To count, and from what I remember, I visited four times during college. First was to pickup my ticket for Graphika Manila 2007, second was during their Animo Jumpstart event because Up Dharma Down was part of the bands who were going to play, third was to accompany a friend to watch Silent Sanctuary, and lastly when I had to report a student there (thanks AC for hooking us up, haha!) for a project in one of my classes.

Would you believe that every DLSU visit, I always, always seem to get lost around that school?! LOL I guess I’ll never get used to big schools. I’m perfectly fine just being confined in one building, thank you very much. Just imagine if things turned the other way around, I’d be studying there.. I would probably end up being late all the time. :))

Anyway.. my DLSU frustrations aside, I would like to share my experience in going back to that school 5 years later. (Sorry for the very long ‘intro’, lol)

Last Tuesday became the 5th time I paid a visit to DLSU. This time I was not a student anymore. I have no business to do there, so why the visit? Well…

The non fangirl-y version of it: Tuhog, a maindie film by Star Cinema and Skylight Films, had its symposium in the school. They’ve been going around schools around the metro since last week (I think), and this is the school that’s closest to me that I could go to if I wanted to watch and get some insight from the people behind this film.

Fangirl version: This guy. YUP. =))

As usual, the same with all my previous visits to this school.. I got lost before I found my way to the place where the talk was going to be held. Ugh. Mave accompanied me as much as she could. Funny, she’s actually not from DLSU and she was more familiar with the place.. haha!

The room was starting to be full when I entered. Apparently, I was already late.. but it’s okay because it hasn’t started yet. =)) Glad we got seats near the front too!  Read more…

Graphika Manila 2012: Highlights

Going to design conferences such as this one is a breather from the usual events that I go to (concerts, or Enchong Dee events, hahahaha) because not only I see and ge to bond with my friends from college again, but I also get to refresh my design perspective from the new info we learn from the speakers. ;) I think this year’s GM is especially memorable for me, aside from being my second GM attendance. I went by myself in the first GM last 2007.

Here are my highlights. :P

Pat Manlapas won a chair!
