The Buddy System: Day One

Today was the first day of the Buddy System. I didn’t fully understand what was going to be expected of me but I was looking forward to working with Kelly and asking her some questions about third year and the final show. The day began with a lot of moving furniture, which was clearing the two rooms. Fortunately we didn’t need to move any walls. Kelly was so organised. She had everything ready for me. She had filler, sandpaper and a scraper all ready to go. The walls were in pretty good shape apart from some awful gum tape stuck down the middle of the wall for no reason. I have learnt for next year that damping the old gum tape makes it come away from the wall and makes it easier to scrap off. I filled in all of the holes and once dry sanded them smooth. There was quite a few girls today who didn’t have any equipment ready so I know for next year to have everything ready from day one. I finished all the sanding and now the wall is ready to the taped and painted tomorrow. It was a full on day but everyone was super productive.

Equipment List:

  • Scraper
  • Sand paper and Block
  • Filler
  • Sponge
