Masterpiece

Boss: If any of you need some references, you guys can come over to my room, I have one at my shelf...
Colleague: Is it original?
Boss: Does it matter?
Colleague: Well, if it is original, it has some colours that 'enhance' our mood to read it...

That idea inspired me to colour part of my current photocopy books, just like how i did in primary school workbooks...many, many years ago...
Back then our homeworks were graded with A+, A, A-, B+....so on, so forth...
I seldom get grades above B+, although i got all answers correct. However, a few classmates used to get A's, despite having mistakes in their work. After a few disappointments, I tried to find out the reason, and I noticed this.......

They coloured all the pictures in every worksheet, thus, earning them good grades!

From then onwards, I started to colour each and every pictures in my worksheets, and Voila!

I got an 'A' !!!


yesss...for the first time!

it wasn't 'A-' but an 'A' !!!

I started putting more effort in applying colours for all my homeworks, but somehow i noticed that my colour pencils were running short each day, and sooner i will have to get a new box...

I ain't a rich kid. Mum won't simply get me a set of 48 colours...and she had also set a budget that limits me to use not more than 2 boxes a year :-(
Before I run out of colour pencils, I thought of using one colour per day ;-)

Guess how I survived with it?

I coloured the pictures like this...

And amazingly, the teacher still gave me A's.....despite my 'lazy' effort!
I did this for the entire year, and all the following years....till there is no longer any pictures in my homework.
