The Short Hair Syndrome
Short hair fits on me, and to my personality. Since I went for short hair, almost every body who have seen it said it is good on me, and good comments are definitely confidence boosters. Not everyone can wear short hair and I’m lucky to have it nice on me.
Maintenance of short hair is not easy. When it gets little longer, it’s harder to style. I don’t usually comb my hair and just let the natural air to dry it and most of the time I’m in a hurry when I leave the house so I have no time to put some wax or mousse on. Hair sometimes looks like a disaster, and on some days it looks pretty cool.
Left photo shows the worst state of my hair. It was long that I looked like a solid tomboy, or guy who hasn’t moved on with the Flower 4 of the Meteor Garden. I couldn’t take having that look for my thesis presentation so I decided to cut it shorter two days before my defense. The result was great as you can see in the right photo. Haircut is inspired by Ginnifer Goodwin’s pixie haircut (which what I liked to have ever since I first cut my hair short but I didn’t have to confidence to.) 
I’m planning to get an undercut style before graduation. Wish me luck!

I have been so much active with Instagram and so dead in tumblr and now that I have time to update this blog, I’ll be sharing my recent artsyfartsies, and if I can, I’ll add up some clever caption with it.

Thesis Journey: The Golden Ticket to the Real World

image

Whatever It Takes

Almost 6 months of hard work for the main thing to be nailed before the final march on March. I gave all I got- soul, heart, sweat and blood. I was drained, always tired, always hungry, and always thirsty for energy and ideas. There were nights that I was being haunted by nightmares of thesis as I sleep… times when I contemplated about the defence scenarios. Times when out of the blue, I just felt worried about tomorrow knowing my time was already running out.

image

Panic Attacks

Since it would be the last plate before I graduate, I wanted to get a subject that would mark in this time of my life as a student. I want to remember all the sting and hard knocks from this experience and to do that, I should make it like a self-inflicted scars beneath my flesh. I chose to challenge myself, to get a complex and complicated in nature kind of project with sensitive and broad scope. Indeed, selecting a prison facility as a thesis was never a piece of cake. 

image

[It is a feast of most of what I’ve learned through 5 years of  BS Architecture from housing, to hospital, religious facilities, school, office, sports facilities, security planning, landscaping, court rooms and everything in between.]

image

There were times that crying was all I could do to release all emotional, physical and intellectual stress. I thought I was weak. I was weak enough to lose hope on myself, in life, in God. But I have realized that it was I who will decide in my future given that I am fortunate enough for the resources I need through my parents, that I hold my victory with Christ helping me all right the way through. I’d always tell myself, “gawa lang ng gawa, hanggang kaya.” But thank God,  I got through my endorsements and deadlines on time with just believing in myself that I can.

On Setting Expectations and Getting Disappointed

Nobody told me not to be too much hopeful of great outcomes. Perhaps I must have gotten so much confidence for my work and effort. Although not aiming for an uno, I knew in the back of my mind that I would pass my thesis and get a considerable grade because, I gave all my best and I know everyone did too. But I sacrificed many things just for this- Semestral Break, Christmas Break, etc. However, due to intricacy of planning A LOT of spaces considering the best circulation possible, I unintentionally sacrificed the aesthetics (which is indicated in the consideration of having the concept of Utilitarianism). The time to get all things done was very limited and it was all used for the planning part. Given that I focused more on designing the most effective plan for a prison facility, my work was judged about its building character which I didn’t give much attention to. Defending the only tricky question they asked from me was a pretty slap on my face, it was the only question the head juror asked from me and he was leading me to just agree with him and wouldn’t open his mind to take my concept, so I gave him what he wanted to hear. I must be thankful for that though, na at least, yun lang. On the other hand, I am grateful that there were no major questions about the planning, circulation and program – so hard work paid off on this part. 

image

Well, thesis defence session went out smoothly, there were only few questions asked, far from considering it as guisado, and fortunately,I got through it with no sweat. Since defence turned that way, I was hoping for a very good grade.

image

Thank God, I got a good grade, minus the very. It is unusual to receive a blank jury comment/s area on the grading sheet, so I was a little surprised and flattered, or maybe they were lazy to put some. I am also thinking that it is possible that they do not have sufficient ideas regarding my project so they gave me that grade.  Honestly, it was hard to accept that I didn’t reach the target grade that I wanted, but I’m still lucky to have passed it considering the complexity of the project, just like designing hospital facilities, it is also considered a suicide. Some remarks were also hard to accept most especially when the impact of it is a little degrading and personal. Honestly, it still hits me inside until now. . Acceptance is the key and will always be the key. Yes, it damaged me however I am also considering it as an inspiration for to prove the world wrong of what I can do in this career I’m taking.

The main thing is, I am graduating very soon, and that is nothing but bliss.

Olivia, will you marry me?
The wedding proposal for olivia billboards have gone viral to the social media. Everyone wonders who the lucky woman is and some hope that won’t turn out be just an advertisement for some product that is yet to be revealed.
Got bored one day and i came up with this. If you dont have money for billboards, why don’t you have it this way?

I recently had my hair cut and I believe Im still having short hair syndrome. I was irritates for almost a week before I cut my hair because I don’t feel pretty anymore lol. I did think twice about this since i’ll be having my graduation picture taken on November. But then I’ve decided to have an extra-tough haircut (like that style that takes a lot of courage and confidence) for my grad pic so this one’s just a warm-up. I am really dying to have a pixie, like Ginnifer Goodwin’s. I just have to wait for my face to get slimmer and that requires a full-body workout to happen. I can’t wait for sembreak. 
This isn’t the best angle to see the cuteness of my new hair but yeah

So i found myself more active now in instagram and twitter. It’s because i don’t usually open my laptop at night when i get home from school. I do not enjoy using Tumblr for android especially when blogging.
Here are some of my doodles-on-photos posted in instagram (some are posted also in my tumblr page). I really enjoy sketching and i really like the fact that my Galaxy Note GT-N7000 comes with a stylus. So far I haven’t found a good doodle app for android. I only use S Note, but it makes my photos low-res so I’m still not happy about it.
If anyone cares, please advise me if you know any android app that can make my life easier, thanks!
Also, if you like these works, please do follow me @carlaazarcon. My world out there has less selfies, don’t worry.
