My vision was hard on the map as my dad drove me around NTU. This is the second time and yet we were still unable to locate our destination easily, how pitiful. After some drifting and hard turning, we found ourselves at Carkpark A. Up the slopes and the familiar LT 2A came into view. I alighted in haste, as if im jumping off from a Land Rover in my LBV attire and rifle ready to wage war. I saw a long queue in front, but upon scanning the small tiny labels in front, i saw that the names were categorised into "A to K", then "L to Q" and "R to Z". Why is everyone queuing on the "A to K" line? Everyone's name start with A to K meh? I jumped to the next column of "L to Q", popped out my 11B and got my identification sticker.
The first column of queue was still freaking long like some Great Wall of China. I dun care, i just inched my way into the LT. Instinctively, I wanted to get the last rows of seat, but some coordinator sorted out of seating position manually. I sat down in the middle section of the LT, more towards my right. In fact, im the second last person on the right in that section.
The old school feeling came to me. Haha..how long was it when i last sat for a test? I searched for my pencil case - a gift from my JC friends, and threw out my stationaries onto the table. ZOMG! My old Pilot G2! I pushed the butt and wrote with the tip. Thick dark blue gel ink flows out like semen, so smooth and comfortable! SAF's pens are by far the worst i had ever used in my life. Finally im holding a proper pen! I wrote my name and NRIC and application number.
As the paper start, i found myself in a so damn familiar situation. A situation of an exam! The feeling of time racing and cold air con and urge to peep at the person next to you came back to me like some System Restore. I focused myself on the papers, and trying to recall certain exam techniques my cher used to taught me. I cant really remember anything.
I found that I cant write. I haven been really writing long passages for perhaps 1 year and 5 months. All the while typing and clicking only. My handwriting looks like some sunburnt and flattened grass on paper. I tried my best to remain legible..but my hands are getting tired just after like writing 100 words. Haha..hand degrading liao!
The first question ask me to pick a picture in the paper and describe its emotion, and add a design element to reverse the emotion, as well as add a design element to strengthen the emotion. I picked a pic of this cliff landscape. In the background there is this house, in the foreground a single woman with a jacket (dunno she is wearing it or trying to dry it. Small pic cant see well). I said the landscape was magnificent and tranquil, as compared to the woman, who seems lonely as she is the old person around. I would add a group of children beside her to make her become much lively and turn tranquility to vibrancy of family activity. I would zoom out the picture (not sure if zooming out is considered a design element not also...) to fortify the majestic and tranquil of the picture.
Second question involved sketching. I was told to sketch a city. The first thing that came into my mind was a big and tall buildings..and small silhouette like vehicles and humans in front. I rushed out the sketch as only 20 mins were allocated for it. Come out like fuck. Some kid's 2D drawing. I took a peep at the girl in front. WTF! Some impressionist 3D view of a classic english type train station! KNNCCB! I really..dunno what to say. I added some shading and did my usual use-finger-to-smudge-drawing-then-reline technique to give the city some dreamy and HDR look. Still..look like fuck.
Third question Option A was story telling. They gave me about 50 adjectives and nouns, then want me to pick 10 and use it in a 150 words essay. No prob man! Sotry spinning time! I wrote about this boy call David having aerophobia and described how he feels and how the plane was like before take off. After the story was done, me happily flip on to do the next question..just to realised there is a part two to that! OMG! "Sketch a cover for your story" DIU! I dunno how to draw plane..agar agar..come out another kid's drawing..summore all outta proportion. I only got like 10 minutes left and one question undone!!! the plane and cover i drew was totally nonsense. I took a peep at the girl, this time beside me, and saw her drawing some strawberry and fruits with colour. I feel like drinking grease liao.
Last question states that i got to draw 4 picture, to show growth and change. I was given 4 boxes, like a comic strip. 10 minutes left..and i dunno what to draw. Human is out of the question since i totally dunno how to draw organic stuff. A spark of creativity came to me. What i drew was 4 handphones, labelled "20 yrs ago", "10 yrs ago", "5 yrs ago" and "now" in each of the four boxes. The 20 yrs ago phone was a da ge da, long antenna and no screen. 10 years ago phone has got a single line super pixelised BnW LCD, smaller antenna. 5 yrs ago phone got camera front and back, and slide open and on top is a colour screen. Phone now (iPhone lah...) is simply a big touch screen and few hard buttons. It was an easy job cos im trained in product design. But whether it fits the theme "growth and changes"...tt one i dunno. Well, can be growth and changes in handphone technology cant it be?
I cant draw on hands for nuts..I can only use mouse to vectorize..haiz..my doom = hand drawing. Die lor!
Anyway this faculty test is fucked up. My portfolio also fucked. My video also fucked. I sold my duty for $75 to have time to do portfolio. My friend did guard duty for me today so i could go for the faculty test. I took taxi to reach Singapore Post before closing time and used Speed Post to send my portfolio to them. I think all these gonna be wasted. Totally..WASTED.
Not feeling despair*, I was ready to hand in my paper. Being anti social, i dint want to talk to anyone there. The papers were supposed to be passed to the end of the row for collection. But the girl beside me was editing her answer last minute and therefore missed the instructions. I din want to talk to her, how am i going to notion to her to ask her pass her paper to me? Suddenly, someone taught in army kicked my mind. We were told not to talk out in the field to avoid detection by enemy, if needed, the most we can do is to PSSST our buddy to get his attention. So i PSSSSST the girl beside me...she looked at me..and passed me her paper. I turn to my left and PSSSSST again to the person and passed my and her paper to her.
While the paper is in collection, i had a wonderful view of beauty legs and low cuts around me. And for the moment i had forgotten im a pitiful NSF. Lol..i tot i uni student liao! Imagine life filled with eye candies daily..woooow! Hahaha.
Getting my ass out from the seat...i saw Potato! Hahaha..vulgarities launched from his mouth and we had a quick chat before he went off. I strolled around the area and found McDonal and Subway and other fast food chains there. NTU is my perfect place to gain weight. YES! Muahaha.
I sat down a corner and played Ninja Gaiden on my NDS...while waiting for my dad to fetch me...
*Actually i dun really wanna go NTU. Its my parents who wants me to goto proper uni. I wanted to go NAFA de. So thats why im not too shattered for screwing my NTU application.
