As per usual, I just used my iPhone. Too bad I couldn’t get it to focus well. It turned out good tho… I think.
Finally got the lomo fisheye camera today! Can’t wait to try it. Tried playing with it earlier with an old film, but I wasn’t sure if it was just me (a totally incompetent film camera user) or if there’s really something wrong with it (again, judged by a totally incompetent film camera user). Will see tomorrow. 🙂
Why is it that during the times when you are not exactly allowed to do anything else but give someone your undivided attention, your mind spurts great (?!) ideas you just have to write it down — pretty much anywhere. That is exactly what happened today. Usually I bring a “handy-dandy-notebook” with me just in case. But since I changed my purse and used a smaller one, the notebook had to be sacrificed. And then all these ideas came pouring in… yes, I do have an iPhone and have Evernote and the pre-installed Notes applications, but it’s just not the same as writing it down. I guess I’m pretty much old school that way. It’s the “romantic” part coming out: the smell of parchment, ink, old books, wood floors; the feel of the paper; the laid back, secluded and tranquil atmosphere… you get it. At first I resisted reading electronic books, but I can’t deny it’s convenient. Though I have note-taking applications, I miss the experience of writing long hand.
So back to my story for today, where did I end up writing my idea on? On a tissue paper. Coincidentally, it is a fantasy themed idea. Of course, I couldn’t resist thinking of JK Rowling.
Are you driven enough? Meeting a deadline is tough. But if you’re driven enough to succeed in everything that you do, a deadline becomes another wonderful challenge to overcome that can even be considered a milestone. You have to always keep your eye on the prize. Otherwise, you focus is lost and so is the prize.
Today is all about planning – for tomorrow, for the next few months and even the next few years. It’s not like the plans are set in stone. It’s more of a precaution to be prepared on what’s coming ahead; in other words, “seeing” the future. It’s an exhausting but exhilarating task. It gives you the energy that will last a lifetime.
The best way to see where you want to go is to lay down all of your options. It’s not going to be easy, but you know that it’s going to be fun. It’s all about the journey.
