Peanut Butter Jelly Timeeee

Yesterday I spent the 5 hours with two old friends in the 4th largest shopping mall in the world where:
  • I displayed my tutu fetish...


  • Pretended I was still young enough to dress up as a fairy princess on Halloween...

  • Took a photo with Winnie the Pooh...


  • Took photos with Winnie the Pooh and a banana hat... 




You can imagine the whole time in my mind I was singing "It's peanut butter jelly time!!"


  • And just basically relived old memories (photo from two years ago)

I can't believe it's been so long since then. I need a reunion soon.

Sippy Sippy Interlude

I was supposed to have another photoshoot yesterday with Lexie and some friends (from the UP May 2010 photoshoot!!) but sadly it wasn't pushed through. Because of this I spent the whole day moping around the house asking myself "WHAT IS LIFE." Because this week has just been terrible, 2 photoshoots cancelled and bored out of my mind.

Luckily my SOS on twitter was answered and I embarked on a little photoshoot with my friends/neighbors.

build me up buttercup


Because I've been busy during the day and tired at night, my photography has suffered. I lost track of my 365 and I rarely took photos. So the night before last night (wait, what?) while I couldn't sleep, I decided to clear yesterday for a good old fashioned shoot. I haven't done one in ages and it felt good to take those kinds of shot again. The only pain was not having my 18-55mm because my 50mm f1.8 lens don't autofocus on my D40x.

Sembreak is hereeee.

I apologise profusely for my lack of blogging. It's ironic because now that I actually have time to blog, I don't. As compared to when I was up to my ears in homework and still managed to blog.

I've just been busy and lazy...and I've been watching Merlin so that's been taking up my time.


I've reverted back to my nocturnal ways. I've been having trouble sleeping before 1 am...

SUIT UP!


FINALS ARE OVER! WHICH MEANS I'M BACK. YEEYY?

Today was International Suit Up Day, I thought it wasn't really a big deal till I got to school and BAM 5 guys in suits walking in a line walked past me. I had to stop myself from laughing or I'd look like a maniac. So I just looked down at the ground.


I thought that was when my experience with Suit Up day would end but by the end of the day, I counted over 30 guys wearing suits, not including the girls I saw. One of them just happened to be my blockmate.

Procrastinaaaatiooon

Ok, so I lied. I'm back today because I couldn't keep away. I just wanted to blog about this...heeeee.


So I was talking to some high school friends last night on twitter and it lead to the discussion of some old photos I took for a project the student council in my school had.

And because I was bored, I decided to procrastinate studying for Math, and preparing for a big event for today, I looked up the photos and my jaw dropped. They really sucked. I mean..what the hell was I thinking. The composition was wrong, the background was distracting and I just hated myself for taking those photos.

So I tried to salvage them a bit and re-edited them. -see how they're all extremely long in width but short in height because the background was so ugly- 

I'm sort of happy with how the new ones turned out...sort of.

This is one of the Kada* photoshoots I did to help fund the some school council projects.

BOKEH.

I'm a BIG bokeh fan. I wish i could take photos of them forever but I can't. So I just make up for it by occasional bokeh shots.

Here are some of them.

Celebraaateee.

So normal classes are over which means finals next week and then 3 weeks of freedom! Therefore I celebrated.

And by celebrate, I mean I sat on my ass infront of my macbook for an hour re-editing photos.

mind boggling.

Kill me naaaooo.
  • 2 English Papers due tomorrow
  • Math Long Test
  • Filipino Orals
  • Finals next week
This past week has been hell week for me, and next week will be hell week as well. 2 weeks of hell week.

WHAAT.

The only thing that's minutely making me happy is my cousin's birthday on Saturday. She's turning 10 on 10/10/10. That's just mind boggling for me. I wish my birthday was that epic. So my other cousin, her sister, asked me to take photos of the party. Gah, I cannot wait to whip Ansel out and just forget everything and get lost in the moment.

Also, I have a small gathering with my friends -wink wink- so that should be fun.

Here's to surviving.

Ateneans, goodluck!

P.s. My facebook page now has 142 likes as I type this. I can't believe my shameless facebook-suggest-to-friends-plan worked! Gah. It's probably a small number for other people I know who have over 500 likes, but it's a start.

:)

Ateneo Bonfire Celebration

I swear my blockmate made me do this.

Chatty.

I like saving our weird chats.


Stalking Matt Mullenweg and the Inifinity Babies

Saturday was an awesome day beyond words because of two things.

  1. Wordcamp Philippines 2010
  2. YFC-Z Infinity Camp
I can say it was a pretty good follow up to the day before yesterday...now if only my brother would get his lazy ass into the car and drive me to the bonfire. IT WOULD BE THE PERFECT ENDING TO THE WEEKEND.
