I met this little kitten while out shooting for work today. Cute overload. Unfortunately this is the only photo I got of this little kitten, as it ran away once it heard the shutter. Hrm. (just as well, I had a mission to focus at anyways *cough* :p)
This is the view from my office. Yeah. Not much to comment really.
Don't have much to say really - just figured...I need to do a blogpost before I turn...eh..yeah.
I thought about it earlier today and I started to feel melancholy (sp?). Just a number but... sigh. It feels sorta sad. Oh, and I got bereft an illusion today. I've always thought I've been of the realistic kind. At least at some areas in life (I know I am fooling myself at others). And that it was a good thing. A solid thing. Turns out. It's not really. I quote:
The reason, I think, is that negative thinking feels good. In its own way, we believe that negative thinking works. Negative thinking feels realistic, or soothes our pain, or eases our embarrassment. Negative thinking protects us and lowers expectations.
In many ways, negative thinking is a lot more fun than positive thinking. So we do it.
Hm. Such a random weird blogpost. Told ya. Blame it on pre-bday-blues. Or something like that.
Oh, and my work? Love it. Thanks for all the well wishes. I've learned I totally have a lot to learn tho. I knew that (ofc), but I *blush* didn't really think it would be that much. Some based on technicalities like the certain way photos needs (I think..) to be exposed to be optimal for the paper/the way the paper needs to edit the photos. Or well. Actually. Just nail the right exposure. Don't overexpose, as I have a tendency to do. Other observances are based at, like, that I'm more of an observer/documenter when shooting rather than uh, I dunno...instructor? Like. I need to have more confidence & creativity re. deciding & positioning the subjects when doing portraits, illustration involving people and stuff. Basically...atm I'm lacking peoplemanagingskills. They look at me, expecting me to know what to do. Something like that. I just hope I'll manage to adapt and learn quick enough. Oh, and I quickly learned that I'll never, ever complain about a picture in the paper looking boring or like, "so typical". Trying to figure a fresher, cooler way to do pictures isn't always easy. Sorta. But. We'll see. I do enjoy learning the ropes behind making a paper for real. It's been a while since my ed & well, theory is one thing, actually being in the middle of the real stuff is another. It feels good though and people are so nice....x fingers they'll continue being nice & patient w/me eh :p
Right. I've entered another decade of my life while typing.
Happy bday to me.
Or something like that.
Ps. I planned (well, thought "I oughta" but never really got around to the actual planning part leading to actual actions) a lot of ambitious stuff surrounding my bday. Blah blah blah. Totally have to settle for less. And late. If ever. Ohwell, we'll see. Looking forward to tomorrow- a whole day w/friends scrapping here. Yay :)
