24 Getting back

These last few weeks has been a rollercoaster. Actually, this whole year has... Sorry that I'm so vague right now. I only do so because I don't have much time to write it all out right now. I'll come back to revisit though.

I just feel like school should just end now. I deserve summer vacation after these past crazy weeks.. haha. But anyway, I'm seeking for advice. How do I get myself back into school mode?? This weekend has been filled with BBQs, pancakes, and sleep, something I've been lacking. But now how do I stop?? It seems now that I've relearned how, I can't keep myself in a living state!

22 4 AM Unsucessful unraveling

don't hide behind that camera lens.
you may see the world from a different perspective,
often times drawing from a more positive light
than those around us.
please don't lose it.
keep that iso setting on high.
other people see life in black and white
and never get around to developing their negatives,
but you, you see the world in full color,
so vivid and never ending
with just enough contrast to distinguish each color
and blend them together to create something unique.
don't hide behind that camera lens.
despite all the bright flashing lights emerging from your little machine, people aren't blind.
they can see you, just as you see them,
even when you think they're not looking back in your direction.
i can see you, just as you see me,
though in a light that's different from yours.
i see you and all your genuine colors,
your various tones and peculiar shades,
hidden from everyone, even from yourself.
they blend together to create one
and expresses an indescribable beauty.
don't be afraid to be placed on the other side of the lens,
to be the object of subjectivity.
you are life and life is art,
and it never ceases to create something unique,
like you.

21 The Light

Ah. I truly want to talk about my Spring break, but I know that it will take me forever to do so. Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
We visited the Grand Canyon! It was truly amazing to see. I hope to come back again and see it from the view of the river. =]

Before we left, we visited my brother in San Francisco for his portfolio showing. He graduated! Yay!
He's so handsome! I'm so proud of him. ahha. I look horrible in the picture, having been sunburnt and darkened from the previous weekend. =_= So sad.

Well, I'm back at school. While I'm excited to start a new quarter, I can't believe how tired I already am. It's crunch time for our upcoming Pilipino Cultural Night and there's still a lot of things to do. I'm already starting to stress out, but I'm pushing through! I'm not too tired yet. Come to our show!! It's on April 17 and 18. Please send me a message if you can come down for the weekend!!

At this point in my life, I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do, realizing my goals in life. I'm also feeling more comfortable with myself and understanding my personality better. I know what I do and don't enjoy. Yes, it's good to explore and try new things, and if I like it I'll continue with it. I'm really grateful for good friends and family. I love how they understand and I'm glad to hear from them that I do have my head on straight and that it sounds like I'm thinking through things the right way. <3
