I missed Ambermist’s last month’s challenge. Not that I didn’t have a story to tell. I just couldn’t pick which story to tell.
In this month’s challenge, in which we’re to give a detail about ourselves, I’ve also hit the same conundrum. Because there are a lot of things that I want to say. But, since
I’m too lazy to write a long post I don’t want to bore the readers of this blog with my personal life or why I’m frugal. So, I’ll just focus on my hobbies instead. With pictures too!
Gaming, of course, is one of my many hobbies. Although, unlike before, I don’t game as much as I do. In fact, I’m trying to get rid of it for years now. But, out of all of my hobbies, gaming is what calms me.
Photography is what I love doing on my free time. I bought my camera a year ago, on impulse. Because I fell in love with a girl and, for some reason, I felt doing something productive, something creative (more of that story here). I own two cameras: A Canon T3 with a 50mm f/1.4 lens and a Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 lens; and a Panasonic DMC-LX5, which I use whenever I can’t take my DSLR with me (like in concerts or music fests).
Concert Photography is what I want to do. I’d even do it for free. Right now, I only have adequate skills and equipment. So, it might take sometime before I could actually be on the press pit, shooting for big shot publication or website. But I’m already starting to build a network.
Music is also a big part of my life. I mostly listen to metal, rock, blues, jazz and a lot of indie. I used to play in a band too, and we’re even locally famous. Now, I’m just a bedroom musician. I own two guitars: A Schecter Damien Special and an Epiphone Les Paul. I plug both guitars to a 35-watt Spider III, Line 6 amp.
I’m also a comic book nerd. I used to spend more than $100 on comics each month. Now, with money being tight, I only spend less than $20. The titles that I read, with the exception of Batman and Uncanny X-Force, are also non-superhero (e.g. Fables, The Walking Dead and American Vampire).
So, that’s pretty much me. Admit it, I’m cool.
