My Big News....

No I am not getting married, no I am not having any kids.

Ok I know some of you been just dying to hear my big news, NOT, but here it goes................I am *drum roll please* moving to TAMPA!!!!

After god knows how much thinking, deciding and what not, I decided to go after my "dreams" and take the Journalism thing seriously. So I am going to IADT - International Academy Of Design & Technology. I would be there for 18 months doing a course on Photojournalism. After 9 months, I'll be going to London or Paris or Dubai or Milan. One of the four....ok doah! I'll be going to LONDON!!!!!!!!! It might not seem like a big deal but it actually is! I never been away from home before, I never had the confidence to do something that would keep me away from my comfort zone so I am very nervous and exicted at the same time. I got the call today confirming that I have been accepted. Ofcourse there is a teeny bit chance that I might not go if the Financial Aid thing doesnt work out. But at this point, since I actually got accepted which is a big shock in it itself since my High school grades were worse then worse and my college grades are not that great either, I think the Financial Aid would work out. Sorry Angie, I have not decided to become a man LMAO but I am going to London!!!!!

P.S: I did get your call and been trying to call you but you wont pick up :p

I found this

.........on another forum.

"There is sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love"

-Washington Irving
So many times, when we cry, people always say dont. You have to be strong. I think when we shed tears because of someone we lost, we are telling that person we still love them cause thats the only way we can show our love to them.

I think I am about to pop a brain vein....

OOMMMMGGG!! I got like a billion books, been reading all these guides, and what not, and I still for the life of me cant figure out the stupid manual mode. How do people do it? No seriously? How do they get such PERFECT pictures? Are they super smart or am I just super dumb? I think its the second one! Soooo frustrated. I am going to pop a brain vein soon and if anything happens to me, its the bloody camera's fault. I do love taking pictures with it, I do. (well after spending so much money, I better love it or my mom will cut me into a billion pieces). But why oh why cant I get perfect pictures? Oh why oh why oh why? Maybe I am not as creative as I thought. Yup thats it. I have no talent whatsoever and I should dig myself a huge hole and go live there. I am sure it would make many people happy getting away from my rants......

Here are some pictures I took on the manual mode and you photographers out there, I know the bloody exposure is all messed up and shutter speed is wrong and Idontknow what should be higher or lower, but blah. I give up for now.

And a picture of a BANANA LMAO. Well I can explain. Aryan a.k.a Satan Jr. got tired of posing for me and wanted to play tag so I started to bother the bananas.....

Fari & Photography

Ok I been thinking about it for well over a year and after coming across Ava's mummy's blog, it just inspired me more and I finally went and got me a dSLR - A canon 30d. Oh I so love it. Mind you, I still suck and have no clue on how to work the manual part and been taking pictures only on the auto mode. But I do hope to learn as time goes by but me being a perfectionist, its really frustrating me that I cant bloody get it. I think it's about time I get some patience.

My main subject is Satan Jr. aka Aryan.......Heres him at the lake yesterday...I think if you click it, it will show a bigger size..not sure:

More pics at my Flickr:
