instagram'd #2

 

instragram username: @kirten
1 & 2:
Rainy city
3 & 4: This is how I pose for photographs now.
5 & 6: Stop! Muffintime.

Looking over my Instagram album, it has become apparent that the majority of my photos are either of food or of myself making stupid faces. As a sidenote, did you know that when I raise my eyebrows, I don't get a wrinkly forehead? This is my only party trick. I bet you are impressed. If you use Instagram, please let me know your username in the comments so I can follow you!

I am now in my second week of university, and it is not what I would call enjoyable. Although I have met some really nice people, the majority of my classmates are music wankers who think they are awesome at life because they can tell you exactly when and where Beethoven was born and died. The photography people aren't that much better either. The other day, during a dreaded "get-to-know-you" activity, the tutor asked everybody to introduce themselves and tell the class why they had decided to take a photography course. 
I said, "hellooooo, my name is Kirsten, and I am taking this course because it is compulsory."
The next girl said, "hello, my name is Wanky McWanker, and I am taking this course because, you know, I'm just like, really into capturing the moment, and like, finding beauty within a still image, like, you know?" AND THEN PEOPLE NODDED ALL THOUGHTFULLY AT HER. Aarrrghhhh. Only 2.5 years of this crap to go. Oh, and after that I overheard some people talking about star signs and horoscopes, but I think I will explode with rage if I go into that.

Anyway I must sleep, for I have to be up early for work tomorrow! Oh yes, I am a proper working girl now! Bye bye :)

  1. Haha I did an 'analyzing photography' course because I had to pick a short course that would run along my main one when I was in my first year (second year I took one about roller coasters - much less pretentious) My photography class was just like that. Luckily the tutor wasn't so hipster - he used to photograph band like The Rolling Stones and The Beatles whilst they were on tour. Literally the only reason I didn't walk away from that class!

  4. Oh my goodness, yes look at your forehead! Crease free!
    Sorry you are not enjoying your Uni course, I cannot stand pretentious people like this! My sister has always studied Art and she says the phony-ballony art student attitude really spoilt her courses for her.
    Never mind, hang in there!

    PS love that lippy on you

  6. WHY DONT YOU LIKE HOROSCOPES I HAVE BIG GIANT BOOKS ABOUT THEM I am going to delve into your future using the numerology of your name and birthdate lolol

    I wish I had a smart phone simply for instagram/auto tune apps. Other than that they freak me out. I feel like our generation tries too hard to be profound.

  7. Haha, lovely photos. I get the worst wrinkles when I lift up my eyebrows, lucky you! I really like the multi colored muffins - yum! I hate first week of classes and get to know you exercises. I used to say the most basic response possible. My boyfriend hates horoscopes too and gets pissed if I bring them up. I just think it is fun and silly to read about, not revolve my whole life around it though. Congrats on the job!

  10. I LAUGHED at your description of the Wanky McWankers (which is a name I'm going to have to start using) in your classes. Luckily, I don't have many of those. Even then, I'm not particularly enjoying uni so you're not alone!

  14. Oh no, they do sound like wankers. There are people like that on my course and they are doing nursing, I think they're breeding and spreading throughout the world!!
    Very cute pictures, anyway!!
    Hope you have a good day :D

  15. lol I agree. I don't believe in the astrology system either. I think it's hilarious when people debate it like it's truth. I do fit what describes an "Aries" though. lol

  18. Hahhaahhaaha "AND THEN PEOPLE NODDED ALL THOUGHTFULLY AT HER."

    There's always going to be people that take themselves way too seriously. :P They make life interesting, to say the least. Keep us posted on this renaissance girl!

  19. HAHAHA you're so funny. I seriously cracked up at the "wanky mcwanker" comment. Terrible, because there are so many people in my course who are the same way. Usually during those "get to know everyone" exercises I'm just like you haha. I get asked "why are you taking this course?" and all I can say is "because it's useful..." while everyone else spouts off some highly insightful shizz. anyway I love your posts, they're so entertaining! Your outfits are so cute and inspiring as well. new follower here! :D

  21. Argh I can totally relate! I did English Literature and it was full of elderlys who didn't take a degree because they wanted to leave home, drink themselves into a coma, and meet people like I did. They took it because they actually wanted to learn. So they all took it SERIOUSLY. And they'd keep us in lectures longer because they just HAD to ask their ridiculous long questions "Well actually I feel that Holden is an alien chosing the image of catching children in the rye because he's a martian peadophile"

  22. HAHAHAHA, ohhh lordy, the next two years are going to be hella fun for you! Is there any chance you'd be able to get away with going to class wearing extra-chunky earplugs? It may sound cruel, but in the long run avoiding overhearing snippets of conversation like the ones you described could potentially save your sanity. I wish you the best of luck.
    And damn you and your crease free forehead! If I so much as crack a smile I look about 40 years older than I actually am. Maybe I should just stop moving my face. xx

  23. Wow, your university sounds like much fun... :/ hahaha, just hang in there!!! I just found and followed you on INSTAGRAM as well, isn't it so much fun? And, I'm @moonstick, you'll see :)

  24. Uni is always like this though! People take things way too seriously. Also, I love your owl face, which is what I have dubbed your funny expression. Owl face is the new duck face.

  25. Hahahaha Omg I would HATE to be in a class with art nerds. Don't get me wrong, I love photography but I really hate people who talk about it too much/try to stick together some magical explanation to why one loves photography. You like it because it's fun, OKAY. GOSH. I really want those bright muffins. And I would slap people if I heard them talk about horoscopes. STARS ARE NOT IN THE FUCKING UNIVERSE BECAUSE YOU HAVE A (sucky) LOVELIFE, GAAAAAAAH (end rant) I wish we could go to class together and slap them!

  26. :) Your posts are always so joyful! Even though you are talking about stuff you find tedious! I am sorry to hear about all the wank stains, I hope they turn out to be less crap humans! I love what you said about the photo people! I hope you still get something out of the class! I'll need to msg you! (I also love your surprised pose you now use!) :) Zoë x
