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.



Spent today doing lots of relaxing. I made time to do some lifting for the first time in like 4 days. Sean’s mom made some bomb ass dinner, too. Thanks, Ms. Culligan! The day after tomorrow is 4th of July and I get to do some shooting. Super excited!








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 according to WordPress, it has officially been 2 years since I started this blog. Thanks to everyone that stops by once in awhile!

In other news, the majority of my cameras are in need of repair. My OM-1 and M5 shutters are capping, my FED4 and Kiev 4M shutter curtains are broken, my Canon Autoboy is locked up and won’t turn on, I dropped my SRT102 so it’s acting up a bit, my Yashica T4 is falling apart and has a broken flash, one of my Trip 35s needs to have the lens fixed.. The only cameras I feel comfortable taking out are my Elan IIe and XA2 and Instax Wide.


This is way past due, but I’ve been getting off work pretty late recently so I haven’t had much time to update.

For the past few days I’ve been shooting a lot, chilling with friends, and having fun. It’s finally starting to feel like Summer Break haha. I recently started my new job, too. Aside from just remembering a lot of stuff, it’s fun and I like it so far.


Today I went to my Aunt’s place for a family BBQ gathering. It was good to see family again after so long. My relatives asked me about my future plans and after explaining the technicalities of JET Program to them, I started to realize both how long and short 5 years really is. Apps come out right before I turn 21. Time’s rolling by faster than I ever thought it would.


I’m sitting here writing this on Monday night since I don’t feel like working on my paper. Things are starting to get kind of overwhelming and I’m wondering if I can really do everything I intended to do. I was talking to a friend who was having issues regarding his life after college and began to ask myself, “Am I really qualified to tell this guy what is best when I don’t even know what I’m doing?” I do have a vague plan of action, but there are so many things that can go wrong and that can work against me that I don’t know what I would do should I fail. I’m kind of a control freak to a certain degree.. While I don’t like being in a position of leadership, I do like having control over what happens so when things fall outside my control, it bothers the fuck out of me. There are some people who get thrills out of scary movies because things pop out of them and because they don’t know what will happen next. I’m not one of those people. I need to know what happens next.
