Bad decisions make good stories. And I always have a good story.

Interview with the shark expert

…. I nearly wrote ‘vampire’ instead of ‘shark expert’.
Undoubtedly I’d explode before I even get to speak if Damon Salvatore was sitting in front of me.

Broadcast Presentation ICA4 was a live interview with some weird identity our lecturers posed as. They are supposed to do/say all sorts of crazy things and make it hard for us. I got Ms Soo acting as a shark expert. 2 people before me left the room in tears. My nerves were fried.

Okay it was on Thursday afternoon so I can’t remember exactly how it went.

  • Went in, introduction, and asked my first question
    “Huh? Can repeat what you said? I can’t hear well after the shark accident in which I lost an ear.”

  • Repeated my question
    “Sorry can you speak up and sit closer please?”

  • Sat closer and asked about her accident instead
    *rambles* “It’s okay, they are just sharks. I still love them.”

Tumblr meme - LOL U MAD

  • Replied that I was sorry to *hear* about her accident w/o realising what I’d said
    “Oh was that meant to be a pun?”

Tumblr meme - bitch face

  • Asked about her plans on shark conservation
    *gives vague, offhand answer about how Singaporeans are the worst kind of people*

Tumblr meme - I ain't even mad

  • Asked her why, she talked about shark fin consumption and asked if I ate shark fin
    Lied and said used to, but not anymore

Tumblr meme - blank face

  • Asked her what she plans to do to improve situation
    “Oh, I plan to do something graphic!”

Tumblr meme - twisted look

  • Delves into a long description of shark body parts
  • Didn’t dare cut her off for fear of being rude

Tumblr meme - bored face

  • As a result, I exceed my 5-minute time limit and overran by a lot

Tumblr meme - teary face

It was kinda fun yet scary, but I’m glad everything is over. At least she answered instead of not talking at all, which I feel is a thousand times worse.

Earlier in the day we also had Storyboarding ICA4 presentations. We had to make  2-minute music video for an assigned song. Personally I liked the MVs for Back To December and Billionaire best. One was sooo sad that I teared and the other was epic funny.

Honestly I think my classmates’ concepts and MVs are better than the actual ones, for these 2 songs. HAHA. Back To December is stuck in my head! I love Taylor Swift’s songs. ♡
