Journal Entry: Thu May 20, 2010, 1:58 AM
I used to update my online journals all the time back in the day, blogs, devArt and other journals etc... but these days I'm just not in the mood for this sort of thing. Am I bored with it ? am I over devArt ? It would be a sad day if this was the case.
Anyways, so the most prominent piece of news since my last update was my 4 week trip to Christmas island.
Since my Jan 24th update (back to Sydney) it just happened that i traveled a bunch of times between Melbourne and Sydney and it wasn't clear where i was going to stay. i was basically jumping around looking for work, uni opportunities etc... It's not a lot of fun, being a bum (still isn't).
All of a sudden a friend of mine calls me up "wanna go to Christmas island for a month?" without thinking i say yes. a week later I'm registered, a week after that I'm on a plane heading towards that little spit in the ocean that hosts a mere 1400 residents and a further 2000+ refugees in its detention center. i was there for the refugees.
The organization i was working under is a non profit refugee support sort of people, most of what we did was have daily activities and sports etc... with the refugees to alleviate them out of their depressive state. it was an incredible experience and i'm very happy i went there.
Anyways, so now i'm back and trying to get into the old rhythm. I got some amazing shots (26gigs worth) and it's taking me for every to catalogue them, RAW process them, prepare them for devArt and facebook and family usage etc... it's a pain in the !$# but i'm three quarters done so it's all good.
This is my update. hope your month was interesting.
