new job and a "photoshoot"

Change of plans. I'm supposed to write about so many stuffs this week, including the giveaway that I will  host soon, but I just got hired yesterday! It was the first time I went to a job interview, but I wasn't scared. And my new boss is quite nice, although I must admit that the work I've been given is pretty overwhelming.

But Rainy strong Rainy strong. I need to earn for my new camera! So Rainy do it. Heehee.

I can't help but admire the fact that although my mind was going "HOLY COW. OH MY GOODNESS. OH. MY. GOODNESS", my exterior demeanor was terribly calm! I know because I sat across a long mirror.

November will be a verrry busy month for me! What with all the commissions I've been receiving, my new job, my color shop.. and this blog. I only have Sundays off now. Adjusting for me will be tricky, because I've been idle for two years. My body is so used to lazing around all day.

The only problem is... I'm sick right now, and I'm starting work tomorrow. Sorry for sounding lameweaksadsick.

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me tweet a photo regarding the "photoshoot" I had with my little sister. You see, my big bro keeps smirking at me every time I talk about photography. Either he thinks I have zero talent or errr idk, he just wants to. You know how big brothers can get. Anyway, he dared me to shoot photos of our little sis to prove that the equipment doesn't matter. Photos taken using a... OK don't laugh! Nokia C3-01.

It was soooooooooo hard photographing her! Her face and body was so stiff, she was feeling so conscious and very mindful of the people who were passing. Ugggh. I felt a wee bit annoyed, then guilt... guily... the guilt I felt made the pit of my stomach turn. How dare I feel such a thing when someone so young was trying very hard to overcome her nervousness? So stupid. Stupid. When I was a kid I felt very conscious when my parents watched me perform onstage. Of course I understood why she was being like that. So I told myself to be a good sister and tolerate the stiffness. Hence, more hand shots. LOL.

I was careful not to show a hint of laughter though. My face was so taut, businesslike. I wanted her to know that she wasn't being ridiculous, because I was sure that's what she was afraid of.

At least she learned a few things. That's what counts.
