So uhm yes, it's been a while I think...my last journal entry is from last year so I thought it'd be time to make a new one.
I got some money for Christmas and I used it to buy a 50mm lens, which seems to be pretty cool so far. It makes the background all blurry and stuff (terminology at its best), like e.g. in this picture:
But initially I bought it to take macro photographs, so I also bought some macro filters. But I don't really like spending money, so I bought four filters (+1,+2,+4 and +10) for about 20€ and I'm pretty sure the quality can't be that good and I've also not quite figured out the right settings when using them. Anyway, here's an example:
Finally we're getting temperatures around 0°C and even some snow (I hear you laughing, East Coast Americans). But I think I haven't seen the sky in like three weeks or so, because it's always so cloudy. That's probably one of the reasons why I constantly seem to be in a bad mood lately. I just need to see the blue sky sometimes and watch the planes go by and not think of anything (wow...was that poetic? Or just corny?). I'm really overthinking things lately and it doesn't do me well.
I'll go to Berlin for the weekend with my history class and I'm honestly not looking forward to it. I've heard of people who'd give a lot to get to go to Berlin but I don't really like the city and I really really don't like the people with whom I'm going there, so ugh...
Yeah, ugh sums it up pretty nicely.
I hope you're having a better week(-end) than me, if not, feel free to rant to me about how much your life sucks.
