the alchemy of (in)sanity
How I spend my weekends: Sitting in the auditorium for 8 hours, junk eating and caffeine absorptions to keep ourselves awake, forcing and conditioning my brain cells to assimilate unlimited psychological terms — disorders, symptoms, interventions and all lot more things psychological (meh). With all of those nerve wracking lessons and not to mention the newly revised DSM-V that serve as psychology’s ‘bible’, I am praying that I’ll not be the one who will fall in the trap of insanity.
We’ve been into galleries lately filling up ourselves with our cravings for art so when we found out about the free museum day at Ayala Museum, we didn’t let the chance to have a taste of good art pass by. Our Saturday was mostly composed of inspiring stuffs and inspiring people. We got in the museum after lunch hence missing some of the activities. (e.g Fullybooked’s storytelling! </3) Photography is not allowed in the 3rd and 4th floor of the museum which I totally enjoyed since there’s no other distractions going around, I got to savour the feel of the art pieces. Twinny and I was in awe of Fernando Zobel’s works. Damn, if I am a millionaire or a billionaire, I will buy Zobel’s ‘black series’ collection (or all of his artworks!!!). Too bad though (and the thing I totally regret), we weren’t able to see Jana Benitez’s Life Force exhibit (IKR IT’S JUST IN THE FIRST FLOOR!!) because we are saving our spot, a really nice spot, for Up Dharma Down. (well, at least) Right after the hearty performance of UDD, Grace treated us for a sumptious dinner! *yay* All in all, it was a one helluva day.
sunshine after the rain
I was asked to photograph my cousin together with Brigette for her homework in her personality development subject. She had a rocker-grunge-ish theme (well, she wasn’t able to push through the legit rocker stuff but photographed her nways) so I brought them in the location that I know and is suited in her theme. Good thing the rain stopped bawling yesterday so we were able to go out and shoot. After the shoot, I grabbed the opportunity to have a stroll with Tasha. The photos of her above are proof of how giddy that little furball is, knowing that the weather is (almost) cleared and she can run her heart out outdoors. It’s really an awesome feeling to have a break from reviewing and to bond with nature even though it’s kind of wounded due to the typhoon.
