This semester I am taking a photography class and I am learning so much. This has turned into a really fun hobby for me. This class doesn’t require a textbook which is also a big plus. The professor is actually really nice, makes everything simple, and doesn’t confuse me with camera jargon.
However there are some people in the class that make me cringe. There are two girls who cannot afford a DSLR and want to use point and shoots. Before you even sign up for the class, the course description tells you what type of camera is required. Why sign up for a class that you cannot afford and don’t have the proper equipment? One guy has an old DSLR and he refuses to buy a portable hard drive because he “cannot afford it” meanwhile he goes on endless vacations (apparently) and the cheapest portable hard drive on amazon costs $55…. and the professor gave us a month to buy them.
Then finally there is a guy who wants to use everyone’s cleaning products. Every time he sees someone cleaning their camera he begs to use their stuff. I hate thirsty people. Buy your own stuff. He saw me cleaning my filter and I heard him whispering, “Share the wealth, share the wealth.” How about you buy your own products? Stop saying you have no money and look into getting a cheap cloth to clean your lens.
My boss is still an asshole with his slick mouth and I have been applying to endless amount of jobs. I went on 4 interviews and I am still applying. I feel the stress slowing slipping away. My boss is making waves for no reason. All my boss has to do is apologize but sine he won’t do that I have to look out for myself.
Lorde’s new song Green Light was released yesterday and I have had it on repeat all day. Some people are saying that the song is too mainstream and doesn’t sound unique, which I call bullshit on. Lorde’s voice in itself is unique and I think the song is doesn’t sound like a traditional pop song. It reminds me of a indie 80’s semi-pop song. This is the best comment I read on YouTube, “People saying this isn’t like Pure Heroine. Pure Heroin was almost 4 years ago. People grow/change/alter. Get over it.” The song is amazing.
How was everyone’s week? Has any one heard Lorde’s song? What do you think? I hope you guys have a good weekend!
