Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

The very first thing — or I suppose, very first person —  that comes to my mind when I think of geometry is my old Geometry teacher back when I used to go to Bethel International School. I remember him to be easy-going and the class found him hilarious (his sense of humor catered to teenagers, shall we say). We only had him for a year before he became our Physics teacher.

Anyway, posting a picture of him feels a bit like cheating, so I decided with this one instead:

This picture was taken nearly three years ago, way back in April 2010. It was after a very long, very dull rehearsal for the end of school year’s Recognition Ceremony and I can’t really remember why, but my brother and I were hanging around this monument located somewhere in Tacloban City. I took pictures because back then, my camera and I were literally attached at the hip (I’ve had bruises to show for it!).

I have no idea what the statue stands for; I was quite ignorant back then. I still am now, actually, but I’d like to think that my awareness of current events has improved somewhat. After all, I know that Obama has been re-elected as the US president because it said so on Tumblr.

Um, yeah. Okay. Over and out!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Big


It seems I’m a couple days late… again. A new challenge has been issued (Silhouette) but I’m still working on last week’s, which was BIG. What I have to show for that is one abnormally sized bourbon biscuit — yummy!!

They were kind enough to give me a fork… to eat a biscuit with.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

Whew, it seems like eternity has passed since I last did a Weekly Photo Challenge! I have no excuse other than the challenges didn’t really go with the things I did, and it’s such a shame that I’ve been so busy that I rarely have time to actually look… which kinda explains why my picture for this week is the way it is.

Behold, ladies and gentlemen, what I see every day — and by every day, I just mean Mondays to Fridays.

It’s not much. There’s nothing profound or awe-inspiring about this. What can I say? My life is caged by this thing called school -_-‘

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

This is not me, nor is this my German friend. This is some random girl that I shall name Molly.

Well, what’s happening today? A Lord of the Rings marathon, that’s what!! My friends and I are hanging out in order to spend more time with another friend who, after ten months, is going back to Germany. She’s an exchange student, so yeah…

There’s nothing like a LotR marathon to send someone off! Just add some crisps, coffee chocolate and ice cream, and it’s a part-ayy!!

Damn, we’re so lame -_-‘

Oh well. Watch this video. It never fails to lighten the mood.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue


Enough said, methinks.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

Well, this is awkward.

No matter how much of an oxymoron it is, for the past few days or so there has been sporadic raining so consistent I swear every time I look out the window or just up, I see raindrops falling. And yes, that makes it just a tad trickier to get a picture of the sun. So instead, I’m going to let you all use your imagination and simply provide the inspiration for a made up sun — that is, say hello to the Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun”!!

[spotify http://open.spotify.com/track/5uGzveq6lRa5TFQ6zX3XaU]

Honestly, apart from that song “rain drops are falling on my head” this song has been a constant thrumming at the back of my mind. It’s quite annoying, actually, but what the hell. It’s the Beatles.


(By the way, I’m trying out this whole embed Spotify into a post thing so my apologies if that does not work. Here’s a YouTube link for your troubles.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Journey


I was going to put up a picture of the rock band Journey for a laugh, but then changed my mind because I didn’t feel like I deserve it (my only experience with it being from the first season of Glee). So… earwig oh!

This is why I enjoy window seats - no, my brother did not beat me to the aisle seat -_-'

Oh, and I apologize for the totally lame ‘earwig’ joke.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

This past Saturday I, and two of my friends, took advantage of the beautiful day and wandered explored one of the parks of the town. To be quite honest, despite having lived in this town for approximately half a year, not once did it occur to me that there would be more than one park. I mean, they don’t call Kent the “garden of England” for nothing. For what I’ve seen so far of the area, it’s a very breathtaking place.

I’m posting two pictures from the day, the first is a view through the tree branches and you could see on the left the beam of the small arch that, apparently, they sometimes use for concerts? The dipping field (and or) the small patch of grass is where my friends and I spent a good chunk of time soaking in the sun.

Ahhh, good times…

This second picture is on our way back home. We were following the river that bisects the town, and it amazed me how we could have spent the majority of the afternoon being surrounded by nature, when only after fifteen minutes’ worth of walking we found ourselves back at the heart of town. The change in scenery was gradual, but the contrast took me by surprise.

Not quite through the bridge as it is going under it... but it's the same difference :P

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast


I just love the British countryside. It’s so… refreshingly wow. Y’know?

With the drooping leaves and the bright clouds, this is easily my favorite shot...

I’m taking the easy way out with this challenge and simply just took pictures of the sky with a shadowed foreground. Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

Yes, I am alive. Life has just been so busy that I’ve found myself sprinting after it…

Anyway, this picture below — while not the best I’ve ever taken, seeing as I took it from my phone — is of the fountain found at my school. The first time I laid eyes on it, I was like wow. My old school never had anything like that in its grounds. And given that my school now is quite small, that’s saying something.

I pass by this fountain every time I leave the Common Room and go to form, my lessons or just — y’know — chillin’ around school. I don’t want to get into an entire explanation about the intricate foundation of this school, but the fountain is located an entire level lower than the main floors.

looking down into the fountain

You can totally see my reflection in the glass, but please ignore that. Focus on the nice fishies! M’kay?? Okay.
