Today I'd like to mention the strange lamppost decorations that I saw on campus today. They are mostly in the area around the Art building, so I am assuming that they are an art project. That would make sense, right? :P I guess I could have asked someone, but I am the laziest investigative reporter ever. I can tell you that this is not the first time I have seen this, so perhaps the class that does this is offered regularly.
My favourite one was the black garbage bag thing, because it looks like the lamppost is bulging unlike most of the others which look like tea coseys. There were several that looked like they were made of knitting, and I wondered if they were knitted by the artists, or if they were made from deconstructed sweaters. If they were knitted for this project, then bravo! I am in the process of learning how to knit from my grandmother, and it is not an easy task. Below are two others I enjoyed particularly. The one on the left looks like alien fruit.
I'd say the semestre is going fairly well for me so far. I may be being lulled into a false sense of complacency though, because out of my three upper-level English classes, I haven't had a single assignment due yet! They are coming up, but so far it has just been readings. Luckily, this has given me time to finish up my applications to the Education programs here at VIU, and at UBC.
I hope the first month went smoothly for everyone :)
