As I approach the end of 2008 (thirty minutes to midnight, and maybe 2009 by the time I finish posting this), I just wanted to reflect on 2008. I can’t remember too much. It just flew by. Maybe that’s why I decided to startup the blog again. This won’t be really a summary of what has happened, but just my overall impressions and just memorable things going on. 2008 was basically the start of a new stage in my life. May and I just graduated from the FTTA and basically we had to deal with life after the training. I guess the biggest thing that happened was we both decided to serve full time. May decided to serve full time at the training center and I started my full time service at Bibles for America. Even to this day, I still can’t believe we are both serving. This year was filled with just normal and ordinary days. That’s not a bad thing at all. I really think the Lord provided me with just normal days in the church life. We rejoined our small group and I’m still learning how to serve the Lord.
Anything new in 2008? I would one say that one thing new that definitely happened was the matter of weddings. Before this year, you know how many weddings I shot? I would say 3 weddings in all over the past 4 years. This year I shot 7 weddings in all. Now I have itch to shoot more. I definitely had a some inspiration… Todd (going to get those post processing lessons from you soon), Maryanne (great to finally meet you in person. Have a great time in Europe), the Becker (can’t wait to work with you on your projects), and just many other photographers. So far, only one wedding booked in 2009 (this Saturday), but we’ll see what comes up.
Well, I don’t do new year’s resolutions, but I do have some hopes and expectations. I hope to definitely shoot more weddings in 2009. I know that Omatik will blow up (in a good way) this year. Most of all, I hope and I expect that the Lord would grow in me more and just give me more normal days.
Okay, nothing special or profound… and it’s still 2008.
Happy New Year everyone (all 2-3 people who actually read this blog).
