Two Different Tears

There are two kind of tears. Tears of joy. And tears of pain. Either way, crying is an effective way to express yourself and a way to feel better! I cry rather often because of moving scenes in movies! (embarrassed but slightly proud, I'm sensitive, y'all!)

Anyway, Wonder Girls has a song about this. And it's soooo good. I can't stop dancing to it.

I was featured in GoGirl January 2011 issue. (Sorry, it's so last month, but I just remember about it now) I submitted an article like, a year ago, and I totally forgot about it.  My friend tweeted about it and I was planning to NOT buy January edition of GoGirl. But as soon as I knew, I went to the nearest bookstore and bought one. Such a dork, I know.

Last friday, I went to a photography workshop at my friend's (and by friend, I mean, ex-boyfriend; we stay friends)  university. Funny thing was, my friend's ex-girlfriend was one of the committee. It was just funny I couldn't help to smile when I realized she was the committe (when I got to the workshop!). Ah. Life. 

Anyway, the workshop was . . .  informational. Not quite educational. There were actually about 30 people there so it was difficult to ask questions and I was intimidated by all the professional photographers! (they all look like they know what they were doing, unlike silly akward me!)

I got a certificate and made some new friends. So I guess it wasn't so bad (since I have nothing to do at home). These are two photos that I think the best (I took about 100 pictures. So I have a 2% successful rate. Sad. Truly sad)

My autofocus suddenly won't work and I discovered a whole new word of manual focus. The truth is, I have never use manual focus with my camera before and I had to ask a junior to teach me how to use it. I'm so ashamed. Oh, I'm not patient enough to stick with manual focus. But my autofocus still not working. What to do? 

My puppy celebrated his 1st birthday last Friday. Is he still a puppy if he's 1 year old? It's like a teenager in dog year, right?
