I was sitting on the edge of my bed this afternoon lacing up my shoes when I had an idea come to mind.
Today I volunteered for SCAD for their SCAD Day. It is a day that they open the campus to prospective students hoping to lasso a few in to filling out an application and handing over their money and life for the next 4-6 years. I agreed to help out because there was a free lunch being offered, with brownies, and I am a bit broke so any food I can get for free - i’m there.
Anyways, the past couple of days SCAD re-carpeted the elevator, dusted the high spots, and polished the door knobs. Why? Portray themselves as how they wish to be seen.
As I was lacing up my shoes I had this pondering thought. It flashed me back to when I was working with the W. I used to work for 10-12 hrs a day, sometimes more. Often times we would have a very large client come into the hotel or someone from corporate come in. Everyone would be in a frenzy to make everything perfect. Order in flowers for the room, fix that light bulb that had been out for 6 weeks that everyone has been complaining about, re-paint the curbside and fix the cracks that have been a public safety hazard for months. All because they’re looking to impress this one person or group.
The same happens in relationships. You meet someone and have a few first dates and you’re all nervous and your palms are sweaty. You break the ice the first couple of weeks and start doing sweet things like writing poetry or showing up at their work unannounced to surprise them with lunch. After awhile it all wears off. You’ve hooked them so why keep trying so much.
I find it interesting how the two connect. Both parties, to some effect, put up a facade to hook that deal or that person into buying or loving the product/them. Pushing all of the other ‘buyers’ they woo’d and swooned over last time..to the back of the bushel.
Just a quick post before my 3d design class starts.
So this past Saturday we all came together to bring our ideas. The majority of the ideas had an earth/elements them to them so my idea was scratched pretty quick. This is a group project after all.
Well, we showed up on Tuesday to class with the teacher saying that we were scratching all of Saturdays work and still going to stay with the elements them but to come on Thursday, today, with new ideas. Ideas using the ideas of shape, lines, and rhythm. So, here we go…maybe one of my ideas will stick.
I did a few designs and think that they could still use some work but find it interesting. Will let you know in the next couple of hours what direction we’re taking.
Wow. You have such amazing photographs. Some of them, I wonder how you were able to shoot since Hong Kong is such a crowded place and most of the photos you've posted looked like deserted places. Anyway, kudos!
Thank you so much! Glad that you have stumbled into my Tumbl-sphere and found some things you like. Hong Kong is definitely a very busy place. I have slowly falling in love with Lantau and the outlying islands. There are some great places here to escape to and unwind…for sure.
