If there is anything I wouldn’t deny, it is the fact that ADHD went on a brief hiatus. 

Setting all that aside, I’m very happy and fulfilled that we have just released our 6th issue! 

" …but she liked photography, and adventure books, and tales of distant, far- off places. She went to lectures given by absurd, remote scholars, and often stood out at land’s end, her eyes closed, sniffing the sea, thinking of the distant shores reached by the fingertips of the Pacific Ocean "
by Danielle Steele, Wanderlust

I dropped by at The Collective in Malugay Street yesterday for Bloom Arts Festival. I used my phone camera.

After so long, we meet again. I’m done with school, like a hundred percent done with it, which is both good and bad. I’m officially unemployed and as of this moment, I can only count with both my hands the things I call my own. Meaning things I earned from hard work. All of those which could be stolen, lost, and broken at some point.

I would like to be the person who can afford to lose all concrete things and still feel complete. So I collect experiences, I go to different places, I try to meet new people even if it’s highly frustrating because I am socially anxious and having to converse with more than five people makes me panic internally. I try to push myself. I try to go beyond my comfort zone.

I hold on to memories and experiences  that made me grow, and let go of the ones I needed to so as to prevent being held back. I try my best.

I need to find a job. Bye.

Hello hello, here’s the fourth issue of ADHD and it’s been out for about a week or two now. 

The scanned photo above was from a mini zine I was doing when I was under an emotional cripple. 

This is how ‘The Kids Know’ came about the theme of ADHD’s fourth issue. The team wanted it to lift people’s spirits. We aimed to, again, bring back nostalgic memories of youth. All the fun and laughter, the color, the excitement and all the carefree days of our lives. 

I am selling my zoom lens because for a while I have been thinking of getting a new one. 

I am selling it for 12,000 with its box and the manual. The retail price is ooriginally Php 26, 998. You may check here if you want.

It is in a great condition. Though the silver sticker has been peeled off but it doesn’t affect the lens performance.

photozone.de review

The build quality of the Canon lens is slightly better compared to the typical low-end/”budget” class zoom lenses by Canon. The plastic quality is quite decent and the lens feels pretty “tight” in terms of build tolerances. The mount is made of metal. The lens extends when zooming towards the longer focal lengths but there’s no wobbling of the inner tubes even at the 135mm setting. The zoom and focusing rings operate quite smooth although they don’t scream “quality” here. It is somewhat annoying that the focus ring rotates during AF operations. Fortunately Canon managed to keep a static front element so it’s no problem to use polarizers. The tested sample did not suffer from zoom creeping.

Full specifications: 

  • Optical construction16 elements in 12 groups inc. 1x UD and 1x aspherical elements
  • Number of aperture blades 6 (circular)
  • min. focus distance0.45m (max. magnification ratio ~1:5 @ 135mm)
  • Dimensions75x101mm
  • Weight455gFilter size67mm (non-rotating)
  • Hoodoptional, petal-shaped, snap-on type
  • Other featuresIS (Image-Stabilizer)

I was in Hong Kong for two days and it was the most tiring and sleepless vacation I’ve had in my life. But it was great. I arrived this morning at 4 am and slept until noon and then went out with a friend. 

Hong Kong is a highly comercial and industrial country with high rise buildings and lots and lots of places to shop for clothes either branded or not. No tax. Except for liquors and cigarettes. Basically, their products cost less because you don’t have to pay an additional tax unlike here in the Philippines where everything you buy has 12% tax on them. On the other hand, Filipinos are so much more polite and hospitable, however, I didn’t say those Chinese are rude. Nope. Just a little.
