Brief Moments of Conversation.

Today the Prime Supermarket near my Church was closed. As I sat at the bus stop waiting to meet someone, I started noticing how many people passing by would stop and look at the notices pasted on the shutters which said that the supermarket's lease had expired and they had moved to another location.

The people who stopped varied from businessmen returning from work to housewives buying groceries to students going home. If they were with their friends they would start talking to each other, and even if they were alone there were moments when they turned to each other and spoke a few sentences. An old man pointed in the general direction of the new location, describing it to another man.

But after reading the notices and talking for a while, all of the people moved on, to be replaced by other businessmen returning from work, housewives buying groceries, or students going home. And those brief moments of conversation happened again. Then the person I was waiting to meet came and I went off as well.

(And no I'm not emo over a supermarket closing, there's another supermarket nearby hahahahaha.)

Okay I know I said I would blog again when school ended. And school has ended for a week now (and starts in a week gah). Haha but I didn't really expect to be out and about for 8-10 hours a day shooting pictures as a volunteer 'young photographer' for the Youth Olympic Games. Eh and I'm not supposed to actively publicise or promote my involvement on blogs/social media either so please pretend you didn't read the previous sentence. Hahaha and I can't post any pictures taken as well. Which I think is really silly because it just restricts the number of pictures of the event online to the news and media outlets. Or the athletes' Facebook pictures.

Anyways, as a result of secretly volunteering as a photographer, I've been traveling all around Singapore for the past week. From Bishan to RJC to Suntec to NTU. The Youth Olympic Village at NTU is by far the worst place to travel to because it's an hour and a half long journey depending on the traffic. And you can't do anything on the train or bus other than reading or listening to music. Which I've been doing so often for the past week that I've finished 4 novels and changed my iPod's list of songs twice. Okay I'm not complaining haha reading is fun! And transport is free. :P

And I thought the food was okay too. Because all the secret young photographers get Food Republic vouchers for food. :)

Fuji Superia Iso400 Nikon Fm2.

I think I've neglected this space for very long. I am going to start blogging again when I'm done with school. 2 more days, I'm telling myself to keep my mind off the unnerving fact that I'm neither enthusiastic nor interested in work anymore. It's not even hate, it's just nonchalance. I'm unperturbed by the fact that I have not made significant progress in my work thus far, and I should be scared but I'm only indifferent. I think designing is a task which requires constant creation and innovation. Which is good because you're challenged to be creative all the time, but is bad because you're challenged to be creative all the time. Okay back to work for 2 more days.

Packaging Class.

Packaging is a very environmentally-unfriendly module. Or maybe it's because I keep measuring/cutting/pasting/printing/scoring/folding wrongly.
