Of Planning for the Future

It just dawned to me that’ll be turning 23 in about 2 months’ time. I’m not in denial, or afraid, rather I’m just surprised at how fast time flew by. I felt my life stopped at 16, because memories of high school seems so fresh in my mind. I guess it’s true when they say college is when time decides to fast forward itself.

I’ve been on full time work since August, and I must say I like the reaps of what I sow. Now that I’m working full time, I think I should make it a point to fulfill the list of things I want to do before 30. Well, I still have seven years in my hands but I can’t be too sure about having time. Work along with my freelance photography job makes “me time” very precious.

In 2010, I made a list of what I want to accomplish by 30. I have to admit, I haven’t done anything except make one out of the five films I’m supposed to make. As such, I’m shooting sort of a short film when I head to Hong Kong next week. If all goes as planned, it’ll be released in February, inshaAllah. I really want to make this film because I need to let go of things I’ve yet to let go of. I sound pathetic, but Adele is my biggest inspiration when my relationship failed. At the end of the day, as much as I am deeply saddened by what happened, I want to move on without any weight on my shoulders and put the past behind me.

As for now, I need to sort out my life and plan how I’m supposed to get into NYU Film school before 30.

Of Love and Engagements

Ever since a close friend of mine introduced me to Style Me Pretty, I’ve been obsessed about party decorating and photographing events the way SMP features them. Last week, I was given the opportunity to photograph Sheriza’s wonderful engagement party. In other words, my dreams of taking SMP-like photos came true! Congratulations to you both! Cannot wait for your big day! 🙂

Sheriza made this cake herself! And she spent an entire day stamping those letters on the flags. A for effort!
