So this entire has been a stressful one for me, juggling between house chores and club meetings, battling for time, almost everyday. You should know me by now that I get worried very easily - especially over small matter that doesn't require any second thoughts. I think I got this from mom! Damn it. As I've said before, I used to be the sleeping member (and still am) of every club and every society I joined in school. I was never bothered to attend any events, meetings or activities held by the club or society. Except for the scouting movement I joined when I was in Form 1 till Form 3. I was active in that. But other than that, I'd only make up lies to squirm my way through these feeble occasions. In shorter terms, I suck at my extra curricular activities (not that my academic is doing any better).
Today, I'm glad (and a little proud) that I didn't even try to skip any of the events. It kind of proves that I was able to face through all the things I used to dread. It's like facing the music - only this time, it's not trouble. It's just extra work on a Saturday. Spent the entire Saturday firing my shutter in school. I had to run all over the different parts of school, covering different games at different times. Later, I had a short break from 5p.m. to go back and have a quick shower to make it for my lector's photoshoot. Initially, I was allowed to go back for that which was after mass, but since I was allowed home at 5p.m., I managed to attend mass as well. Killing two birds with one stone! I went back to school, after the short photoshoot, to cover for the night's gathering.
Apart from the sore feet I got at the end of the day, I realized that shooting in low light conditions aren't easy (I worked with an ISO of 200 and above!). Given that I do not have any external flash or anything else for that matter, I had to walk right up to the performers to take pretty unsightly shots of what's happening. Not to mention the awkward stares I get from the stands (my ears were practically burning hot!). Other than that, I was quite satisfied with an honest day's work. Well, I'm just happy that I pulled through the entire week without much complaining!
