and then came today

Wednesday, May 1

This photo was the first ever instant photo I had ever taken with my new, beloved camera, the fujifilm instax 210. The same new, beloved camera which died on me this morning, approximately after less than twenty hours of unpacking it out of the cardbox in all of its fresh bubblewrap glory and taking my first photo with it. And how did it happen? While I was fixing the strap on it as precaution so that it won't drop and break in future, it plunged right to the hard hard ground. Oh guys, how my heart fell when it couldn't turn on.  And oh, the irony of it all.

This was one of those times in my life I wished I could rewind it all and magically be armed with vampire like reflexes and catch the darn thing. But of course, special powers always seem to elude me when I need it most.

Soooooo my day wasn't off to the best start. But somehow, the world answered my dampened soul with a double free at the end of the day, so I got to go home during lunchtime. Which, after running 3ks yesterday and waking up feeling like an old lady this morning, deserved an "AMEN!" with a fist pump in the air. The day was then finished off with a phone call with a good friend, whereby we spoke in a british accent (just because we can) for a good whole fifteen minutes before he called it. And fair enough, because sometimes sounding cool takes effort, guys.

So not all was lost, I guess. Those vampire like reflexes are still staying on the wishlist though.

Oh, no!! So sad that it's now broken. I got my instax in March and I've only taken 3 pictures with it. I should really start using it more often.
