My photo
Manila, Philippines
Just a manic 17-year old photographer(of sorts) from the Philippines running a photoblog(also of sorts) to pass the time.

in the time i've known you.

from the messy notes of an crazy hyper blogger:

WHERE ARE MY DAMN CHEETOS (warning, rated F for fucked. PG 100+)

In amidst of all this school werk(yes, I said werk.) I've been finding it harder and harder to find time to take photos. I guess that's why I like celltography so much because it's easy to just whip my phone out and take photos.

I didn't get to take a lot of photos today though. And I didn't have time tonight because I've been busy writing a Literary Analysis paper. It doesn't help that my friends keep on bugging me as well...

the fact that.

Because I want Cheetos and my friend Wobz will be giving me Cheetos if I write another cheesy blog, specifically this one.

The fact that.

the same old things we did last week

I'm getting tired of school. I can feel the weight of hell week pushing down on me already, and it's still 2 weeks away! I wish time would fast forward to sembreak so I'd have a month long vacation. Too bad life doesn't work that way.

I've never liked taking photos with my cellphone because up until recently, I had a crappy phone with a crappy camera. I only ever used it to take photos of fun times with my friends and family, moments where I didn't have my camera with me.

Today was the beginning of experimentation for me. I managed to take some shots with my phone while we were filming things for my Filipino class. All of these are straight out of the camera/cellphone(SOOC) with the addition of my watermark.

I've grown quite fond of them.

today we talked about how monday's felt dead, about how monday was the most useless day the of the week. we both had early morning classes and we woke up to each other's voices in our alarms screaming "wake up fool!"

today we talked about how weird your hands were, so full of callouses and yet silky smooth like a baby's butt full of johnson's baby lotion with some talcum powder on the side

today we talked about how unfair it was you slept in class and got A's while i furiously wrote notes and got B's.

today we talked about how one day this will all be gone but we'll be happy because atleast we got to experience some of it.

today we talked about how ironic it was that i loved vanilla while you were allergic to it. we talked about how i love seafood but hate to swim, how you love skydiving but hate heights. and then i proceeded to laugh because you're so fucking tall.

The next step.

It's been two years since I've gotten Ansel (my Nikon D40x) and in the time I've spent with him, life was amazing. I dove into a world I never knew existed before. I began to look at things in a whole new way and I've never looked back.

But since I am a greedy, greedy girl. I've started to hunger for a new camera, for the longest time my heart was set on getting the Nikon D90 and I've been waiting for a new camera to come out so that the price of the D90 would drop. Now that the D7000 has come out -side note: oh god, why do i feel like i'm talking about cameras being gay...- it looks like the D90 would be mine.

But as I said before, I am a greedy, greedy girl and I've started to cheat on the D90 with the D7000. Now I don't know which one to save up for...

a picnic on a rooftop eating on an airbed with you.

we've had lots of conversations before. too many to count, but still a lot i can remember.

  • him: so what's the point of it all?
  • me: why are you asking me? I'm not God.
  • him: Aren't you close with him though? He's like...your God.
  • me: go ask your nature sprites.
  • him: I don't worship nature sprites.
  • me: ....
  • him: ok, maybe a little bit.

  • him: I got you pizza!
  • me: i can't eat pizza fool. i'm sick.
  • him: i got you cheetos!
  • me: i can't eat cheetos either!
  • him: I got you ice tea!
  • me: didn't you bring me anything useful??
  • him: i got
  • me: that'll do :)

  • Me: Ok, so if you could choose. Batman or Superman?
  • Him: Batman.
  • Me: Why Batman? He doesn't even have super powers? He's just a rich smart guy.
  • Him: Because. His theme song is cooler.
  • Me: What else?
  • Him: 2 words. Bat. Mobile.
  • Me: good jooooooob.

  • me: i found an old photo of us the other day.
  • him: yeah? where'd you find it?
  • me: your wallet
  • him what were you doing with my wallet?
  • me: what were you doing with my baby pictures?
  • him: oh you know, stare at them when i miss you.
  • me: weirdo
  • him: so what were you doing with my wallet?
  • me: stealing your money. we're eating pizza today.

and i remember all this because it's what doesn't make sense to anyone else but us.

Like balloons floating in mid-air with no where to go. 

That's us. "Excuse our appearances. We are taking apart yesterday to make way for tomorrow."

in our sleep.

People told me that I wouldn't be sleeping much in college.

Well, it's now my 4th month in college and I have to tell those people how wrong they were. Back in high school I slept at wee early hours of the morning but eversince I entered Ateneo I've been sleeping at around 10 - 11 pm depending on what time my classes are the next day.

College is really hard though, I really feel bad for some of my blockmates and classmates who lack rest :(

I just took all these shots one day when I noticed everyone seemed to be sleeping.
