I've probably complained to a bunch of you by now, but let me complain again, 'cause I have the right to voice my absolute displeasure. >[
So, as most of you know, I'm in China, for a year, studying art. Today is the last day of my 6 day holiday, not even a bloody week, do these Chinese people ever consider the well being of the children and their sanity? Tomorrow I'm gonna go back to boarding at a high school *sob* (Me too, I thought I was finished with that place too.) and back to 8+ hours of drawing everyday. (Wish-list: A sword to slit someone's throat with.) I'm not even exaggerating when I say that, sadly. How the kids here survived all these years, I will never know. |||orz (And how I'm actually considering to stay here for another 4 years is a mystery I'm dying to solve.)
So for the last 12 days before the holidays, I went to class from 8am-11:10am, 1:30pm-4:40pm & 7pm-8:40pm, everyday, 7 days a week, with an addition of 5 sketches a day for homework. @A@ I'm positive that I read something about Rembrandt being a party animal and many great artists having very healthy sex lives. So, it is clear to me that they obviously didn't keep to this insane schedule. I have been drawing so much that I don't even know what I've been drawing anymore.
( Horror, Horror, HORRORCollapse )
That's just a basic summary of the wonders of school life here. Stay tuned for the next issue: Socializing and Beijing Pastimes.
PS. Ignore the grammatical mistakes, I'm starting to feel the effects of all the Chinglish around me. You'd be amazed by the number of people (everyone really), who is supposed to be studying English as a mandatory subject yet not able to piece together a single sentence correctly.
