TEN THINGS

It's been so long since I last posted "Ten Things". Truthfully I've been pretty busy with work, something I definitely was not earlier this year. I have two jobs at the moment so when I'm not at my day job I'm working from home. I really like both of my jobs but I find myself questioning everything else in my life. I suppose we all go through that stage, especially in our twenties.

Father's Day | A Celebration

Today is Father's Day in Australia which has always been a difficult day for me due to the fact he passed away 16 years ago when I was 8 years old. Last year I remember talking to him and saying how I miss his voice and had no idea what he sounded like anymore as any memory of his voice had faded over the years. A few months ago I discovered some VHS tapes of home movies that I have been looking for and got them transferred to digital format.

I finally got to see and hear him again which was an absolute blessing - I never thought that would be possible again. The footage below was taken on my 3rd birthday at my McDonald's birthday party.

August | One Second Every Day

August started off calmly and ended with my most feared planetary movement - Mercury retrograde (DUN DUN DUUUUN). The last 2 days of August really kicked my butt and brought out a lot of emotions and frustrations in me, but for the most part August was a pretty good month.


I'm really happy about getting into the warmer months now - the winter weather has been non-existent over the last month but for some reason the winter blues dragged on longer than I anticipated. Spring brings fresh starts which is what I desperately need.

Disposable Diary #8 - Documenting December

It took me quite a few months to finish this roll of film. I believe I started in early December and finished in February. Then it took me another 4 months to get the film developed. Sometimes that is the beauty of film - capturing something that is fleeting, forgetting about it, and then rediscovering it months later.

Top 10 Things I'm Scared Of

The real world scares me. My head is a utopia; it's all rainbows and butterflies and equality and love. Everything works out there the way you want it to. Everyone gets to pursue passions and interests and help out people. We have time for things that make us happy and the concept of money is non-existent. There's nothing to be scared of there.


But here, on Earth, there is a lot to be scared of. The world is unpredictable - people do stupid things that hurt others without thinking of the consequences and the way society is structured hurts everyone. Either you're judged and treated like a lesser person because of futile things such as your skin colour, sexuality, gender, age and appearance. Or you fit in for the most part, but have to do things you don't enjoy.

Disposable Diary #7

I finally got the film developed from a disposable camera I purchased in Sydney! I was so excited to get it back, and I still have another 2 cameras that I used in Sydney to get developed. I can't wait to see the other photos.

First Shots with the Pentax Espio 738

A couple of months ago I was given a Pentax Espio 738 by a family friend. I was pretty excited to use it due to the self timer feature and the ease of use of the camera. It's been really fun to use and I enjoyed carrying it around with me - in fact it is still the only camera in my handbag.
