Yesterday I joined a little workshop on making Christmas wreaths. I was about to take pictures but there really isn't a lot to tell, You get a green oasis, stick a bunch of green sticks and decorations on it and light the candles.
Since I live 45 minutes away from school, I need to wake up at the crack of dawn which can mean that I whitness the most beautiful colours in the sky. A few days ago the sky was so beautiful that I took out my iPad and snapped a little photo (the one above).
The reason I like photography club is that I get the oppertunity to show others all the pictures and ideas I would usually only look at myself (at least, that is how I thought it would go).
I don't have any of my close friends in that club, I don't have half the confidence some of my fellow schoolmates have and I definately don't have the energy to jump through hoops to be noticed. When we get homework to photograph something, I feel a certain sense of pride looking back at all the beautiful things I've seen. I walk into class and all I see is people on their laptops going "look at what I took" or "I really like THIS one". So far, I've only stood by, politely smiling as the same person presents for the fifth time. I think I can safely say that I have a confidence issue. Not because I don't want people to see what I'm doing but because I'm affraid of being judged. Sometimes I walk through the school halls hearing and seeing the meanest things and wonder why I don't have camera to record and send to the director of 'mean girls'.
Oh well, i suppose what i'm trying to say, is that I don't really enjoy photography club at moment. It's almost like the past two weeks have been an eye opener. If I don't step up, I will drown, i need to learn how to swim and fight for the things I want. Not to be a mean person (that is the absolute last thing I want to do), but to prove to myself that I am worthy of being noticed. Everyday is beautiful. ENJOY IT
Okay, this post is feeling a little like a diary entry :p
Next week, I'll post something more entertaining!
I know this post is a little behind, but I felt like it needed to be done. Here, in the Netherlands, halloween isn't really big celebration. Usually somebody sees the date half way through the day and says "oh...it's halloween today". Since I always try to celebrate it a little bit, I thought I might wish everyone a happy (belated) halloween...
Next stop Christmas!
