Person - Hey, do you have a car?
Sakaki - No, do you?
Person - Yeah, why?
Sakaki - Ooooh, what're you doing this weekend?
Person - Nothing ...
Sakaki - Wanna help me with a school project?
Person - Sure. What is it?
Sakaki - Taking pictures of roadkill.
::Goth Boy coughs up chips. Pause ensues::
Person - Are you shitting me??
Sakaki - No, actually!
For me, thinking about this project in terms of requirements makes it seem a bit less strange to be doing. "I need day shots, night shots ... maybe some in the morning? Hmm" helps isolate me from the fact that heck - I'm going to be looking at dead, smushed, bloody furry animals. Maybe it won't bother me when I actually get around to photographing them ... maybe it will. Strange to say that I don't know just yet. ^_^;;
If you want to know why I'm photographing roadkill "in its natural environment" (no, I do not want to pick it up and take it home with me, people ...), I need to do a collage which somehow communicates "No wild, no wildlife" to people. I wanted images of roadkill, but alas - magazines, for whatever reason, just don't want to provide me with anything useful. XP So, I have to do it myself.
It's either that or using fish for trees.
I have an appointment with the Dean of the Fine Arts tomorrow morning. Wish me luck ... I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to say to him. XP Subjects, I do know.
- choir requirements
- voice lessons
- if necessary, mention my former voice teacher's name (it has a surprising amount of power, apparently)
- study abroad in Japan
I can only hope that it won't end like the last time I tried talking with a Dean ... after being merely a distraction and not a person, I got shuffled out of the office after five minutes. >.
