My childhood has ended

      After 9 3/4 years, the last installment of the Harry Potter Series was finally released a couple of days ago. Although I've seen it twice already in the past couple of days, I'm still in denial. I don't think I can formulate the words I felt, ever. I probably won't watch it again for another 5 years or so, and even then I won't be able to explain it. There's just too many emotions and reactions for me to write about it. All I know is that my childhood has ended. We really have to move on... but I don't want to.

What's mine is mine.

      You're not the boss of me. I don't have to answer to you or anybody else for that matter. This is my project. It was my project before you came along and got yourself in that position -- a position that was supposed to be mine. However, you being in that position doesn't give you the right to take this away from me. I've worked hard on this for months. You do not just go strutting around and taking it away. Tough luck for you, but I don't really care. So why don't you just stick your butt where it belongs and leave me alone?

SLIS@50 Opening Ceremonies

      I know it's lame and all, but I'm really proud of this event. Our team labored ourselves for almost a whole month preparing for this. We even stayed 'til 10PM in the Main Lib just to finish with the prep. I'm not complaining though. The event was such a success and all the pagod was worth it. We had so much fun during the prep and our guests really appreciated our efforts. Although I ended up crying over something worthless and being worn out, it was all worth it. The amount of people who attended and the smiles on their faces made up for everything.

      But what I'm really really proud of was the programme for the event. Ma'am Rhea said that the programme will also serve as a souvenir in a way for the attendees so it had to be kinda bongga. Given our limited budget, I figured we couldn't spend much and time should also be considered since we had other stuff to do first. So I came up with this foldable thing. It opens up to show with the programme itself printed inside.

      I know it might look easy to make and all, but really it's not. I had to make three prototypes before getting it right. It was really hard with the logo since Photoshop auto-centers the image when you paste it on the page when I didn't really need it to be. Plus, my OCD was attacking me that week so I really needed to make it right. Not just because it would be handed out to 150 people during registration. lol

      After this event, all I can say is that I can now be a professional events planner. LOL I can even do the invitations for the event! Hahaha Anyone hiring?
