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!









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.


“What would you think if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song,
And I’ll try not to sing out of key”


Aside from working, I’ve been working on my translation project for the past couple days. I narrowed down an article I wanted to do, got the okay from my professor, and have done close to half of it so far. I’m pretty worried about the translation final, however. I haven’t even read the textbook (which I didn’t even think we needed to do) so I feel pretty behind. According to the grading breakdown, I can actually get a 50% on the final exam and still get a C in the class (as long as I get like at least a C on the translation project), but it’s still kind of stressful because I feel like more is expected of me because I’m actually Japanese haha.


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.


Wow it’s been awhile since I last updated. Time is going by super super fast. I just have to take a couple summer courses and then I can graduate at the end of the Fall semester… One semester earlier than normal! Pretty excited for to get out of school and apply for JET. I still don’t really have a set plan for the future and that kinda scares me sometimes.. It’s easy for me to say fuck it, but if I don’t take things carefully life is gonna fuck me.

During class I started to realize just how much I depend on some of my classmates for help on things and how incapable I have been during my entire time in college. Whether it’s depending on people for help on homework or asking stuff I should know about normal college stuff (selecting classes, when things are due, etc etc).. I always believed in being independent and only relying on yourself since at the end of the day you’re the only one you can rely on. I think I need to re evaluate some things and become a more capable person because once I graduate I can’t exactly expect people to be able to help me through everything. I guess no matter how mature I think I am, I do still need to grow up.
