I have been messing with my “gifted” Polaroid One600 camera for the past month now, and it has done so much for me. So, in honor of the impact instant film has had on my life, I will ramble about my thoughts on instant film.
At first when I picked it up, it was solely because I had caught inspiration to do so from Life Is Strange (video game); however, now, I love it because I love the medium. 🙂 Anyway, I had no idea what to expect from this camera of mine and I had no idea how much shooting with it would change me.
It’s gotten to the point where I’m starting to fall in love all over again with analog photography. I mean, I’ll always have digital, but there’s something magical about analog that digital will never reproduce. Perhaps, it is because analog is more intimate, more romantic (at least in my eyes.)
It’s me, Carlos. Boy, the summer of 2017 has been quite a impactful one hasn’t it? In fact, it’s been so filled with memories that you’re having trouble writing this post, huh? Well, don’t fret. Baby steps. Just take this one thing at a time.
You know, last summer was one filled with work on work on work. You were slaving. Heh, but not this summer. You spent your summer doing the opposite, not working. Spending your days cooped up inside your parents’ house, in your childhood room, has been both a blessing and curse.
You’ve made a lot of memories in that room. And this summer, it just seems like you really embraced laziness. You managed to play through all of your video games—Murdered: Soul Suspect, The Last of Us, Okami, Life Is Strange, Watch Dogs, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Metal Gear Solid V, and Thief (all of which have brought hours of joy, fright, frustration, etc.)
Hey Wonderful Listeners!
Oh, I tell you, this Spring Break was quite a relaxing one, although many exciting things didn’t come to pass. But I cannot complain for all the things that have happened, for the most part, have been really wonderful. If you’ll let me, I’d like to recount some of the happenings which have passed over the course of this week.
My Spring Break started basically on Friday, March 10th. I didn’t have any obligations to anything so I mostly spent time just relaxing if you will. I’ve spent a lot of my time just doing things with my friends and avoiding the little homework I do actually have. (Y’know, because I’m lazy.)
Hello Wonderful Listeners!
Today was an excellent day! I mean, it couldn’t have gone better (at least not in retrospect that is…) What made today especially nice is that I didn’t have to make an early start!
So I actually got up at 1PM today instead of 10AM. Why? Because I wasn’t required to go to my first class. So I didn’t. 😛 Jessica had told us that she was going to be gone and that it was a work day so we could use it how we saw fit.
Well, I didn’t go to my first class but I did end up going to campus around 2PM to get the work done for that specific class. (Yeah, there’s no getting around the work that needs to get done is there?) Well, before leaving the apartment, I chatted with my roommates as I usually do. Of course, we were talking about something really mundane and not important but these conversations are always inviting.
Good evening Wonderful Listeners.
My overall day today was quite relaxed. I went on a small adventure (and I do love a good adventure) with my friends today. Shall, I just recall quickly for you the events that have lapsed? 🙂
I woke up rather early today (and by early I mean around 11:30am.) Since being up, I spent the day playing video games that I enjoy. I tried to enjoy them since I hadn’t really touched them since coming home. I spent about six hours just playing. It was a nice break from…my break.
