I was pulling an all nighter since 12/30/10 working on the Water is Life competition. For 48 hours of no sleep it consisted of drawing at home, going to work, drawing during my lunch breaks, drawing AT work after my shift was over and sadly even drawing at my friend’s new years eve party.
So 9pm rolls around and I was finally content enough to send my work off to their website. I was looking on their website for the submission link. let’s see, submission link, submission link…wait, where’s the submission link? I started getting frantic. I just wanted to send it through and get it over with now it’s not letting me. So after carefully looking through the whole website this one part said:
Your poster(s) must be digitally uploaded by midnight (24:00) on 31 December 2010. Entries will then be closed.
When I read that the first time in the beginning of the month I said to myself “oh Dec 31…midnight…new years! got it, I can have it done by then” Now I’m reading that line over and over saying to myself “what the F do they mean?!?!” and it dawned on me. What they meant by it was tick tock tick tock 11:59pm 12/30 tick tock tick tock 12:00am 12/31 DING DING DING!!! time’s up you lose, Sucker!
I usually refrain from using profanity on my blog so that it’s suited for all viewers. young ones please cover your EARS,
FFFFUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKK!!!!! I was late by 24 hours! why the hell do they have to phrase it that way?!?! Now I can understand and truly appreciate when people give assignments and they write: Due 11:59pm mm/dd. using 12:oo/2400 can really confuse a lot of people. Now I felt like I did all that work for nothing.
So for the rest of the night I unwined at my friend’s NYE party drinking 2010 away. go away 2010. I’m done with you!
For those who are curious on how the pictures came out. Here they are:
Enjoy, Happy New Year, and let me know what you truly think of it. thanks
