Just got back from an assistant photographer job at a wedding. Gawd, what a totally full-on, crazy day. Hell of a rush though. HELL of a rush. I know they say that you either love wedding photography or you hate it, and I think I'm currently on the 'love' side, although I may feel differently when I look at the photos!

Man, I think every single muscle in my hands, arms, and upper body hurts. I might go and lie down.

Doing something good. [Nov. 28th, 2008|12:16 am]

[Current Mood |okayokay]

I know we're all stressed out about the financial crisis. So many people are out there getting their homes repossessed that it stops meaning anything to you but a bunch of statistics. However sometimes you see something that makes it real, and you realise that you CAN do something to help. So you do. And it feels good.

This family is about to lose their home. Their friend is asking for $1 contributions to raise $10,000 before December the 8th, and they are almost a third of the way there. I think they can get there, and this is my lame attempt to pass that hope on. Maybe it is some ridiculously elaborate scam, although my gut doesn't think so, but what the hell, If I've got 20 bucks to spend on pixels, I have 20 bucks to spend on helping someone keep their home, especially this close to Christmas.

So, Miyuki Kanbe died of heart failure a few days ago, age 24.

I hear she had an eating disorder, but who knows when you're hearing things over the internet. I am...shocked. A year younger than me and now she's dead. I really used to love her to bits, I still remember meeting her and all the joking about me being 'kakkoi', and me being amazed that such a beautiful person could exist and walking away and tears coming to my eyes because I was so overwhelmed with it all. You'd think that such a bright, happy, dazzling person would have the world at her feet and actually she's been desperately sick for over a year, if not more. I wish I'd sent her a fan letter when I had the chance. I wish there had been something I could have done. In the end she was just a kid in a big, showbiz world.

I never knew. So sad, so sad.

Attn: FRIENDS

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

...Yeah, I <3 my internet friends. ^_^

So, update on the life of me! Now working for Oxford University, which is really quite interesting, although extremely heavy on the spreadsheets/college diplomacy thus far. My work buddies are pretty awesome, I get invited out to all sorts of things, like Cocktail Friday and Chips Tuesday. I'm going to some dancing/buffet thing at Town Hall with them this Friday which looks highly fun, although unfortunately Gerard can't come. Not getting nearly enough sleep right now, which makes me a little bit prone to being emo, but I'm sure my body will adjust itself to working life soon enough.

Will be back in Australia some time in August, not sure if I am happy to be going home or crabby that I'm missing summer AGAIN! Darn it all.

Quiz thingy.Collapse )

I finally caved in and joined Facebook. XP Weak creature that I am.

Last weekend was a lot of fun, I went to the Tortoise Fair on Saturday and spent Sunday afternoon punting with some friends. Those of you who have the link to my photo gallery will be happy to know that it has been updated. :P

Have an interview tomorrow, it would be nice to get some steady work for a while along with the temporary stuff I have been doing!

Rest in peace, Allison.

You will be sorely missed.

Life can be so tragic, I don't know what to say. It seems like only a little while ago you were working with my Dad in Moresby and living down the road. You were so young and energetic. I hope you have gone to a better place.

Not sure I entirely agree with all of that, but eh.
