Overcast

I’ve been thinking a lot lately, about the things I wanted to happen in my life, my future.Β I used to think I had everything figured out; I even have a 10-year plan that I made when I was 21. I was on track for the first 3 years, but I kinda lost my way when I was nearing my 24th birthday. You know what they always say about people in their twentiesβ€”they are meant to be lost. And that holds true for me.

I guess that’s what happens when you experience, when you go out there. The future seems bright as day, but you’re thrown out in the jungle and suddenly you realize…you don’t know a thing. Scary, yes, but there lies the adventure. If this happened to me when I was fresh out of college, I would have freaked out. Now, I may be confused but I’m not afraid. I’ve learned to accept spontaneity in lifeβ€”we can only control things so much, we must also learn how to go with the flow. I know these challenges I’m experiencing right now will only show me a clearer picture of myself.

And speaking of pictures, this entry is titled Overcast because the pictures are taken on an overcast day (duh). I’ve been utterly frustrated with Manila’s recent weatherβ€”everytime I wanted to shoot, the rain decides to come pouring down.

I’m practically a novice when it comes to shooting with film cameras, but since I’ve used Chad’s Canon AE-1 a number of times on timer mode in the same location (my terrace, lol), I thought the pictures will turn out okay. But I was wrong, so I had to think of ways to “repair” them. These are the only ones I managed to save from the set. Oh well, charge it to experience.
