Classified Data

The following information is highly classified:

I can be charged for showing these to you.
But that is my decision.

My fate.

In November of this current year, 2011, there will be an event.

In November of this year, there will be a revelation.

In November of this year, there will be SECRETS.

The Visual Arts students of Form 4-5 Hillview College will be holding an exhibition entitled Secrets at the main building of our campus.

The exhibition will be held from the 15th to the 18th November 2011.

Hillview College is located at the corner of El Dorado and College Roads, Tunapuna, Trinidad.

In case you are not familiar with the area, when heading either Eastbound or Westbound on the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway, you will encounter the Macoya intersection (the one where you can see the pretty large Trini flag at FireOne's headquarters).

Turn off of the highway into Macoya Road and simply travel along that Northbound Road all the way to the top (you have to cross the bus route and the Eastern Main Road as well).

While driving up to the top, Hillview College's campus is pretty hard to miss.

The first thing you'll see is a maroon gate and if you look closely, you shall see the college insignia and the words "Hillview College" on the gate in gold.

Please view our website

The artists will be there, but try not to interrogate us please :)

Viewing will be possible between  8:10a.m. and 2:30p.m.

I have just completed five of my end of year exams and I don't feel good.

Technical Drawing was a relief (only I completed the exam).
English A was fine...
Geography was actually very nice :)
But Add Maths and Physics...

Well, next week I have my presentations to do and I have quite a few more exams papers to do i.e. Paper 1 & Paper 2 for a lot of subjects.

Wish me luck.

The Stresses of Academic Life

If only movies like The Matrix or Inception could bring their highly advanced learning technologies into the realm of everyday life on the third rock from the sun, things would be alot easier.

I could just download the updates into my brain or I could drop into a dream state and continuously recall the newly learnt information until it became laser etched into the back of my cerebral cortex. Then, long term memory would just take over and I would have absolutely no problem with remembering ANYTHING.

Unfortuately, they are still Science......FICTION.


As this monologue suggests very heavily, End of Year examinations are upon my poor soul.

In fact they start next week Tuesday.



The most hated examination science subject due to the high quantity of formulae, equations, graphs, energy diagrams, derived units, SI units, calcula......

As well as its Dominion over the other Sciences.


I think right now, I'm probably feeling worse than Ai Weiwei.

Ai Weiwei.
In case you are unfamiliar with this Chinese artist, I can either refer you to the geniuses at, or I can give you a little lesson myself.

Ai Weiwei is a very CONTROVERSIAL artist in China because, unlike many others in his country, he aint afraid to stand up to the Government and show his discontent with their bold decisions which change the course of the lives of every citizen and resident of the Republic of China.

'Ai Weiwei (born 18 May 1957) is a Chinese artist and activist, who is also active in architecture, curating, photography, film, and social and cultural criticism. Ai collaborated with Swiss architects as the artistic consultant on the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics.

In addition to his art work he has investigated government corruption and cover-ups, especially the alleged corruption scandal during the construction of the Sichuan schools that collapsed in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. He uses the internet to communicate with people all over China, especially the young.

On 3 April 2011 police detained him at Beijing airport and still have not filed any official charges. His studio in the capital was sealed off, and his staff interrogated pursuant to allegations of "economic crimes". On 20 April Ai was appointed Visiting Professor of the Berlin University of the Arts.'
From Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia

Snake Ceiling was created from school back-packs - the same brand as those used by children killed in the Sichuan Earthquake.
The earthquake occurred in August 2008, killing thousands of schoolchildren.

So his life is quite a disaster at the moment, but I think I can speak for ALL academics out there by saying:

'We've got some problems of our own. No matter how amazing he is as a thinker.'

So wish me luck in these horrible exams and I wish Ai Weiwei luck in his attempts to expose corruption without being victimized by those in authority.

Adios mis amigos y amigas
