Dad’s Olympus and my Yashica.. Bought mine at a flea market last Eid, and finally get to use it for my brother’s wedding tomorrow. Wonder how it will turn out, one thing i learn about film camera, you really appreciate every film you take with it. Because you only have 36 photo which you can’t even look back at the photos you took before snapping it. So since that its my brother’s wedding, it seems appropriate to use it for special ocassion like this as my gift to him. Time flew so fast, the lil brother who used to be my partner in crime, or to be exact my minions back then, will now be a husband to the girl of his dream. Okay…..save that for later.
*the bad news is, my digital camera that i bought since 2008 have finally come to an end, he can’t be revived anymore . Goodbye my lil digicam, you have been a great companion for all these years. Adieu ~:(
Lesson #6 : Never expect
As much as you think everyone should be more like you or people you know, do not expect everyone to be the same as much as you expect them to be.
You can never meet everyone’s expectation, so does everyone meet yours. So the best way to avoid disappointments is by not expecting too much from others.
They were not privileged enough to be exposed to whatever you are exposed to, so be prepared to come across people who will either push your buttons, or do work lower than what you expect them , and anything that will only disappoints you.
Usually when you start working, but it can also start earlier if you are studying, especially group work, you can never get people with the same mind, or the same amount of commitment or effort you put on the task given. People come from different background and way of life, so they have their own way to do things their way. Try to meet halfway or if that can’t be met, then try to think of other alternatives, if that too fail, well, you will figure out what to do when the time comes.
So even though some people may disappoint us in some way, others can also be disappointed by our action. So be careful on taking on certain decision, or dealing with any conflict, and try to severe ties at a professional level at least - even if you don’t like the person, its good enough if you can work professionally without mixing up with personality/personal issue.
Things like this takes time to mature, even as i write this, i still find it hard to deal with some of the matters around me. Patience takes years to master but a second to loose. So keep calm and deal with it!
