Last Friday Night

  1. That’s an awesome ending to a school year! Enjoy the summer!

    By the way, I think you gave me ideas on how to spend the ending of a school year; it would be appropriate for me next year, as perhaps it would be the last school year for me, as a student (who knows in the future, I might end school years as faculty), when I finish grad school and finally get this PhD!

      1. Haha, well, I was wondering how I could end my graduate school career with a bang. I’ve been toying with the idea of a 6-week backpacking trip by myself, but somehow it feels too solitary. I might throw a swanky dress-up party with a few of my close friends like what you guys just had, of course lubricated by alcohol. That adds another thing to look forward to!

  2. I wish I could see everyone’s faces better—Picasa, Charles–I’m sure you could make corrections in Picasa that will blow yoir mind…!
    You look very very cute in your bow tie! And it looks like you all were having a fun time!

    1. Thank you Naomi! I had Picasa once, but I use Photoshop because it’s more powerful. I did made some corrections, but since I took the photos with my iPhone I can’t do much about the quality. It would have been another story if I took with me my DLSR. :)

  3. Very cool, Charles…and Odd! So glad he could join you for your special occasion. I’m still laughing over the girls having to show you how to tie your bowtie. Somehow I figured it would be the other way around. :D

  4. I like the way you write your blogs! :) Very interesting, heh! And it sounds like you had a really good time, which is good! The pictures are great :)

    1. Thank you Jessica! I really think this narrative style in my blog gives a certain edge of originality and creativity. I’m happy that it’s met with positive response from my readers and blogger friends like you! :)

  5. I have no idea how to tie a bow tie either…. I think it would be so much easier to get one of those pre-tied bow ties on elastic! Anyway, you look very dapper, and I’m so glad you had such a good time partying with all your good-looking friends.
    So school is over for another year. What will the summer bring? And what about next year…. more school?

  6. Hey Charles,

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog :D! I truly truly appreciated it!

    You do look cute on a bow-tie.

    I hope to see more of you; I’d love to hear your thoughts on issues :D.

    Cheers

  7. What a great looking bunch, and a wonderful way to end the academic year. The Diamond Awards.. is that a type of function where they award students who have exceptional work? If so, did you get one? I’m just curious.

    Enjoy your summer vacation, Charles! =)

    1. No I haven’t won anything since I didn’t send any graphic entries like a poster or a profile manual ( I didn’t know until I saw the other entries). Instead, I only sent a vignett or opening sequence video and this website, which was included in the exhibition.

  8. Charles….I took the liberty of copying some of your pictures just to see what I could do in Picasa to see them better….They Look FABULOUS! I should try and email them to you…You need to re-visit Picasa, my dear. To my way of thinking ir does a great job!

    1. Hello Naomi! Yes, do send me those because I did my share of correction and all of them are not to my liking. I guess it’s a matter of taste, but as my teacher said once if the raw file is not good then no matter how you correct it you won’t be really satisfied with it. That’s why I specifically made a note that the photos were taken by my iPhone so my readers would understand the detrimental quality of the photos especially in bad lighting. Also I find the photos quite all right on my screen so I didn’t bother to fix it some more.

      I don’t really need Picasa because as I’ve said before I have Photoshop CS5 which is an industry standard. Plus being a Mac user I also have iPhoto which is similar to Picasa, but I also rarely use it as an editing program in favour of Photoshop. I only use iPhoto as my photo library.

  9. Tying ties is…difficult. I always have to help my brother tie his, and that’s your standard necktie. I imagine a bowtie would be trickier.

    But the struggle was worth it. The look is great. :)

  10. What a nice looking bunch of people :-D I agree about the tie, looks lovely on you.

    I am hoping to be in Europe end of 2012. I am heading to the states around that time and then I will fly over to Europe on my way back home to Australia :-)

  11. You seem great striking amazing poses for the cam. I’m wishing you a great summer ahead.
    By the way, thanks for visiting my blog, and leaving a comment there. Your comments went through of course. It just seems to disappear because they wouldn’t be published immediately. I am moderating comments so before the comments are published, I need to read them first. You see, in the past, my blog is an easy target for trolls and idiots. :-)
    Where are you right now? Norway?

  12. wow! looks like a fun parteeeyyy! great to have friends who can support in moments like that. great tie!! i love the fun pictures and you channeling zoolander… ;) missed reading your blog… :)
