After more than a month dealing with bumhood, I’ll be finally bidding it farewell this Saturday. A new phase of my professional life will commence. Actually, its not that new, a sort of continuation. I will be back to the country that I loved, from its culture and sceneries and to the company that honed my designing skills. Of course, I am nervous and don’t know what to expect on my first day but I hope everything will turn out fine. Just the way I imagine. LOL!
Aside from the challenges that await me in my working area, I am pretty pumped up in fantasizing how I can abuse my camera this time around. The changing seasons, the traditional and modern Japanese women, the temples – and the list will never end. I already had a photoshoot invitation this 13th. Would you believe that? I am looking forward to it.
One of my friends asked me the reason why did I accept this offer? Is it about the love I once lost? I told her, a bit of desperation I guess. Just kidding. I just wanted to continue the job that was halted by personal and professional problems. About the lost love, honestly I am still hoping to meet her again and given the chance, talk about what happened in between. Yeah, I am a loser.
At 30, I think its about time to be serious with my career and life. I am not getting any younger.
As I pack my bags, I can’t help but be sad too as I am about to leave my family once again. But time passes by so quickly and the next thing I will know is that I am with them again once again. And don’t start asking me about my mother, she’s very emotional and I can’t help but be emotional too. The longing in her eyes melts my heart. Always.
For the next days, months and maybe years, alone, I am going to count the rising and setting of the sun. Distance will never be a problem. Never. I hope so. My family will always be my inspiration.
