I’m typing this in the dark. I should be in bed but I thought I should update.
I’ve been playing with my new toy for a few weeks.
Nikon FM10. 35-70mm lens. Black & White Fujifilm Neopan 400.
I suck at learning cameras but I think I have a pretty good grasp of capturing pretty angles and subjects’ emotions. Sent my first roll of colour film for processing. Hope it turns out decent.
I’ve been very reliant on my DSLR’s auto-focus and sharp aperture settings.
I hope I’ll do good for the manual SLR too.
I’m currently deciding on getting braces (ortho) after a long struggle with my protruding upper arch. Compared to other cases of bad teeth, mine seems like a case of vainpot wanting to fulfill a childhood dream of getting aligned teeth. That’s what I was told by friends recently. Thinking back, I didn’t really wanted braces in my teens. The teeth issues probably surfaced when I started working and having enough money for my material needs. Why should I hold back if I have the financial ability? I’m just a little jittery that the dentist wants to pull out more teeth from me. i probably have less than 30 now! Dentures might be cheaper next time!
After being in isolation and pretending to be emo for a period of time, I’ve come out of my zombie mode to hang out with friends again.
Had quite a few drinking sessions and caught up with my friends’ lives.
Started being critical of other people.
And becoming really conscious of staying sober when with guys.
Whipping out my Nikon to capture cute moments.
I can safely say I’m on the safe side of drinking.
Though the last session was a little too much on my pocket and some hands were everywhere.
The past still bothers me once in a blue moon but I’m very sure I’m over those days. 2 years and counting. I’m still hiding but not afraid anymore.
My boss had just tendered his resignation. I’m really happy for him. He deserves that major government offer that he has just gotten.
I’m not sure when I’m getting off. Maybe soon. I’ve sort of planned my route. I do want to work overseas in the coming year. It might be a little tough when the braces are fixed.
I’m feeling rather happy these days. 🙂
