A Short Short Story

“Sick and hurt. Stayed at home. Recuperate. “Drink more water!” the mother yells. I see blood.”

– Inspired by Apostrophe Gallery’s Short Short Story Program.

My Future is Grim

I just spent my weekend working in the studio for 12 hours each day! Now, that’s an experience!

Jobs were distributed among the designers and programmers, while copywriters had their lucky break because at this rate, they weren’t needed anymore as their jobs were done earlier. I had my fair share of converting mocks in pngs files to flash files and some repetitive chore of ActionScripting, mainly to do with external links and pagination (def: the numbering of the pages). It was quite exhausting and stressful when the workload never seemed to stop. The group leader would say that our work was almost done only to have more delivered to our workstations.

Fortunately, meals were provided and we had our fair share of KFC, Dominos, McDonalds and good ol’ chicken rice. Yum! After eating, it’s back to work again.

I just hope I don’t have to go through this again but just in case, I’ll pack my facial cleanser and a small towel. My fellow intern even agreed with me that they should have had a shower stall installed, with fluffy towels ready on the rails!

Illustrations no more! (Only occasionally…)

Okay, I’ve come to a realisation that it’s highly unlikely that I can maintain an illustrative blog. Haha! I’ve been so caught up with internship that I’m swamped with work. Co-workers have been distributing work all over and I had to help out in three websites and multitask. In fact, I’m going back to work on weekends! Zing!

Not gonna gripe much about work, but one thing’s for sure – Clients are a big headache! It’s frustrating working on the same thing time and again just because they refuse to give proper information. Other than that, everything is fine and dandy. I got to brush up on some HTML skills and I’ve been converting more than 50 pages of flash from pngs. *pukes*

So yeah, no more illustrations! Can’t help it. Too busy.
