Fuck I’ve been slipping for the past 2 months. Instead of saying how busy I’ve been, I’ll spare everyone the excuses. I will say that I’m trying to keep shooting, though! Trying to be optimistic! Here’s a short series of photos I call…

A Forgotten Summer:

So after an odd series of events that I can’t quite explain, I’m now going to be a server instead of a cook at my job. I think my boss basically hired someone else to do my job and I was placed in a server position instead. Looking back, I do vaguely remember him saying that he may do that at some point, but my Japanese isn’t 100% so I think I didn’t understand it at that time. Fuck I’m so awkward in front of people. Hopefully I don’t blow it.

This coming semester I’m taking 16 units (not the 18 that I originally thought). Tea Ceremony and Tea Culture, Modern Japanese Lit, Reading and Analysis of Cultural Texts (for GWAR), Japanese American Art and Lit (for Segment 3), and Geology Lecture/Lab. I basically have class everyday so any SFSU people hit me up and we can chill. I’m starting to scan the backlog of snapshots I have. Here’s one roll down.

I’ve been feeling pretty sick today. I think I caught a cold or something. I couldn’t even make it to class today. I felt a little better after taking a short walk, but my neck is killing me from sleeping on it wrong. On another note, I’m extremely broke. I think I have $2 in my savings and I’ve had to resort to using my credit card again. I can’t wait to graduate so I can get a job that pays well.

I somehow double exposed nearly this entire roll. I have no clue how, but I guess it’s kind of cool.

Me and the dude Sean went to a photo fair the other day where I bought a red, Leica shutter button for my M5. While it probably won’t make me a better photographer, it sure looks pretty fucking good.

I went to Green Apple today after blowing through a couple rolls and saw “I, Tokyo” by Jacob Aue Sobol in the used section. I almost wet myself. It’s long out of print and fetches upwards of $200 used. I quickly tried to buy it, but Green Apple isn’t as dumb as I thought. It turns out that they had put it there accidentally and it actually belongs in the valuable book cabinet with a $150 price tag. Fuck me.

Wow already halfway though June. My summer classes start in a month. Can’t wait for that unlimited use of SF State’s darkroom!

I’m thinking about buying a SF24D. I’ve been using a Vivitar flash mounted on my M5, but found that it’s a little hard to move quickly with it due to its large size. Since my M5 is the two lug version, it hangs vertically from my neck which also adds a lot of strain on the little plastic piece that keeps the flash on the hot shoe. I think having a smaller flash with a relatively large GN like the SF24D would benefit me more, but I can only find it in the ~$200 to ~$250 price range which is kinda pricey. Since I already need to CLA my M5 I don’t know if it’s a wise purchase or not.
