Amazingness! It’s sunny for the first time in what feels like weeks and when I woke this morning and saw it I thought I might explode with happiness. Still absolutely freezing but nevermind.
I went to see a very interesting film called Tsotsi yesterday with Dalip. It’s an Acadamy award winner – the best foreign film of the year apparently, made in South Africa. It certainly was very good, and it was very strange hearing colloquial Afrikaans again, with all the slang I can remember using when I lived there. I could actually still understand it, which surprised me a great deal. It was mainly in Xhosa from what I can tell (which I only briefly studied for a year) but it often swapped to Afrikaans and sometimes English too. Oh yeah, and the music rocked.
We got our 3D modelling results back yesterday too, even more excitement! I’m very pleased with my grade of 83%, a nice strong A, but less pleased with the feedback. There were 1 word or 2 word comments on each section, and the 3 word comments made absolutely no sense.
What on earth does “Composition of 3D set: basic extensively discussed” mean? And why is he just seemingly marking us on talking about it, instead of the actual way I chose to compose it, and all the planning that went into it? It’s weird.
Another one is the conclusion: “Acceptable extensively conclusion” – anyone?
