Last night was suppose to be the big night were my sculpture which I spent the last six months working on it while putting my heart and soul into it because for me this was suppose to be my magnum opus, my masterpiece, my best work yet. Me and grandma went to the ceremony and it finally started after 30mins in and everyone was there including my sculpture teacher who's the best by the way, my fellow classmates who I have nothing but love for them and several others in the art community in guayama plus the mayor was there too.

Once the administrator of the art school gave his speech about how our art is the pride of Puerto Rico and Guayama, we were treated with his violin play which sounded nice. But unfortunately after the violin play the people on stage kept on talking about our pride and such but honestly it felt like their dragging the event with filler talk until finally the award ceremony the main event finally arrived.

First off where the beginner division which surprisingly most if not all of them won a prize which is a nice trophy by the way. Then came the advance division which I'm in and I was waiting with a lot of anticipation and glee feeling that my sculpture is a born winner especially with the work and love I put into it. I was sure that this year I'm finally getting an award for all the work I done for my piece, I was sure that I would finally get some recognition from my own home town. But back to the story, they called in several of the advance division and eventually everyone in the class was called to the stage and won except one.....can you guess who?........that's right THIS GUY!!!

After that I had to go to the bathroom because frankly I needed the privacy as I go and locked the door and no I didn't cry. I looked at myself in the mirror and asked "What the hell does it take?" My heart was shattered like someone took a sledgehammer to it and then stomp on it for good measure. Eventually I pulled myself together and for the rest of the night I wore a fake smile and clapped like nothing happen. While to the outside world I was a happy guy but inside I felt upset and having the feeling like I was cheated out of my award. But I did get a diploma...but then everyone did too and personally it felt like a consolation prize not to mention I already have like 3 of them back home.

So with that the award ceremony was over and everyone went down to the exhibition rooms where all of our work are on display. Mine was in the third and last room. I looked at it and to my horror I noticed a long crack at the back of the piece. But thankfully no one else noticed......but I did and it annoyed me to no end. Like someone was so careless enough to let it drop to the ground and leaving it as it is. But after a like 10 to 15 mins me and grandma left early like we're the first ones to leave mostly because she got tired from walking up the stairs to the second floor and I was just mad that my best work not only didn't win but was mishandled and ended up with a long crack during the preparation to the event. Honestly I believe that me and my sculpture SHOULD have won that night. I put a lot of love to my art and it's even of my own design that took me exactly 6 months to make from scratch. And apparently the reason I didn't win was simply because the judges of the event were old fashioned and that my piece is apparently too modern for their taste while the rest of the class did more or less traditional works. To which I say they should get themselves updated because we're in 2014 and NOT in 1989. Most of the guests saw and liked my sculpture and some gave me the usual congratulations, hand shake and picture. So with that the public or the 1% or 2% of them liked my work....and yet the judges saw it and were like "Oh no this is too modern for us, maybe if we ignore it it would go away." Personally the judges can go screw themselves over with a bottle of whisky and then some. After this I'm considering taking other classes in the art school and take a break from sculpting especially after two years of doing it.

And honestly my sculpture which is named "Dragon Mystico" should have won because a) It's original and not some carbon copy of another piece and b) I put everything I had on that piece as long as it was my sculpting teacher's ok with it. It's basically and supposedly be my best work yet.

So anyway what suppose to be a great night ended up being a lousy one. But hey at least some people liked it but that's about it.

So yeah as the title of my journal says I finally got myself a PS3 and with the added bonus of having the Last of Us as a bundle. I also helped myself with a copy of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix as well as my reserved copy of the Smash Bros game for my 3DS. And so far I enjoyed all the games I got but I haven't finished them yet. I'm still getting used to the controller especially since the last time I played with a Playstation Controller was when the PS1 was around and that was AGES ago.

So far I have no problem with the Kingdom Hearts game as I'm getting very used to the controls and the camera has the option of being automatic or manual. I tried manual but didn't do much for me so I went for the automatic route and it works wonders. As for The Last of Us it's a real beauty of a game and sometimes it feels more like a movie than anything else. The controls are great and makes you work for it, the graphics are gorgeous to look at and the story so far is perfect. I've been killed like 20+ times by Clickers, soldiers and thugs but I can start right where I died.

As for Super Smash Bros for the 3DS it's good it feels more towards Melee than brawl only with some new and familiar characters. The stages are more or less different in the 3DS version as they did say both version will have different stages. Theres a lot of modes besides Classic mode and Adventure mode. I haven't tried the rest yet but I'll get to them eventually. Overall this was my early Birthday present and it was 110% worth it, it's not the PS4 but the PS3 still has some power left in it. And the reason I chose the PS3 over the PS4 is because is cheaper than the later and has more games. Not to mention the PS3 games in my local gamestop cost from $20 to $60 a pop so I'm good with that.

Well til next time, later :)
