A Filipino Vegan Restaurant. I couldn't believe it. Since I had turned vegetarian almost five years ago, I haven't been able to eat much Filipino food. Now, I am able to eat dishes that I have missed so much. Adobo, Lumpia, and Kare Kare are just a few selections in their menu. Check it out! It is great!
I witnessed an event that I could've witnessed in 2005. About a year or so ago I started understanding the meaning behind punk and hardcore. Me being the Emo/Mathrock/Jazz kid I am known to be punk and hardcore was a genre that has been overlooked in my book. I didn't realize that these genres helped build a foundation towards the music I listen to today. On October 9th, that basement brought together kids that had grown up to share memories of the past. Since I wasn't apart of that scene during 2005 I was able to get a little taste of what they were like. These kids may have different mindsets of the present, but they still hold the pride of the past and what became of them.
I thank these kids for accepting me into their world and to understand why I live the way I live today.
You have been put to good use for many years my friend. You have viewed many scenes through the good, bad, sad, happy, boring, interesting, and inspiring. You have put me in situations I've never thought I'd encounter. The way your shutter clicks, the way you operate the flash, and the slowness of your focusing motor made me the photographer I am today. With the training I've received (and continue to receive) I now see the world in different colors, angles, and light. Now that I have moved on you hide in my closet, asleep. You may never awake again, but I know that one day you will be needed for times of desperation. For now, just rest and remember the times we had together.
