January 5. Went out in the morning with my brother. Did a lot of errands. One of those inevitable busy days.
January 3. This was the only photo I took. As you can see, it’s the foundation plan (footings and columns) of my oceanarium thesis. You can also see some of the installed aquariums. Thanks to SketchUp, it was so easy to do! You can also see my white IKEA lamp and some other things. Oh well…
January 2. I decided to take this photo from the car. I know it’s not that artistic but I believe it captured all the gloom and wetness of the day. My family decided to visit grandmother, she’s already 98-years-old. It was nice to connect with her though we didn’t stay long.
January 1. It’s the first day of the year! Instead of celebrating, I was on my desk doing floor plans for my thesis. I realized that I should draft a restroom layout. I had this moth-gnawed Plumbing book. And luckily the page I needed was spared! I was told the book originally belonged to my grandfather who was an engineer.
It was almost night when I remembered that I have to take a photo for my 365. So I went out, hoping that I’d find something interesting. And, yes, I did. I noticed our brown aspin pup sleeping next to an empty Carlo Rossi bottle.
2:365 In Rome I Prayed
The rain was spoiling everything. But not the people’s faith. Catholics from parts of the world gathered at the St. Peter’s Square to celebrate Easter with Pope Benedict XVI. Though I was really tired to stay up late and continue to watch the Mass on TV, I consider myself lucky enough to “attend”!
1:365 Taillights and Fast food
It was already 1:00AM when the midnight Easter Mass ended. My sis, my twin brother and I went home; my twin’s the Innova driver. When we arrived home, my sis said, “Let’s eat out. Jolibee and McDonald’s at Lopue’s East are now 24/7.”
So, all of us hurried back to the car. Before we were out the subdivision gates, we prayed (for the first time after months) for safety. Jim, my twin, is not yet an excellent driver…so yeah, it was really necessary that time. It felt like more of an adventure than an ordinary road trip.
After some time (it’s approximately a 30 min travel), I kindda noticed that Jim was driving slow. My sis, Ela, noticed it too. But Jim
said he was going fast as usual. He mentioned the speed, and yes, he was fast. Maybe my sis and I were just a bit afraid for our lives. Or maybe it was our first time to let Jim drive “in the dark”. Lucky for us, there was not much activity on the road to Lopue’s East.
When we finally arrived at Lopue’s East, Jim roughly parked at Jolibee. A motorcyclist saw this and laughed, he really looked like he was pretty entertained. Then, we got off the car. Took our orders and drove back home. In the car, the scent of the French fries was everywhere.
I was sitting on the passenger seat when I took this photo. See how dark the road is from our residence to Lopue’s East? You can only notice tail lights, there are no streetlights halfway.
I know when the new college semester opens, I’m going to get really busy. College life is always like this. I probably won’t have enough time to open my internet accounts anymore. So, luckily, I came across this 365 Project in Flickr.com: take a photo of yourself/something that would represent each day of the year. I know I may be kindda late to start this 365 Proj, but the idea is so great that I think I’ll regret it if I don’t, at least, try it.
I’ve decided to post my 365 Project entries here in WordPress (and also in my viscountjan.tumblr.com). I’ll be posting not only photos but also poems (or very short journal entries) for a specific day. The new semester would be very tiring and, with this 365, I would really be aware on how I spend my time and how productive I am.
I’m planning my 365 now. Hopefully I can officially start tomorrow. So, yes, good luck to me!
