Things are Happening.

I speak the truth.

This time next week (24th January) is Blue Monday! That means, according to this (dare I say slightly random) equation:  it’s the most depressing day of the year. So… um… have a happy Blue Monday! :)

6,000 Photos

Just to let you know, I noticed today I have over 6,000 photos/videos (and this really matters to you), most of which were taken last year. Pretty decent for my age. Right, I know I don’t have any followers or anything, but if I ever do, and you happen to stumble across this post, here’s my first attempt at a question: (drum roll) What’s the most amount of photos you’ve ever taken in 365 days?

2011

Hope you’re enjoying it, I know I am, which is suprising considering my camera just had a knock-on failure I don’t know how to fix.

School

School starts tomorrow. I’m 13: I don’t have any exam-thingies, but I’m not exactly in a good sleep schedule. Anyway, I should be optimistic: first day’s always good, but no matter what my friends will tell you, I’d rather have another few weeks of holiday.

Annoyance (resolved)

My Canon Ixus camera seems to be broken after I dropped it in a wet sink. I’m really not sure what I can do, but it’s been three days now so it’s pretty unlikely to fix itself, although it might be the battery that’s not working. I’m not feeling too confident at keeping electronics safe now, considering it was a Christmas present.

Edit: I charged the battery and it flickered on! It needed to shut down due to a “lens error”. I’ll try connecting it to my computer. Hopes are up.

Edit II: Oh yeah, it needs to be on in the first place to connect. Bear with me.

Edit III: It came on properly this time, and probably could take photos if I hadn’t lost the memory card. So, basically, it will work soon.

Edit IV: Know what? It’s working! I won’t risk dampening it again, I’m probably lucky, I seriously expected it wouldn’t work again the first time I posted here. So basically, if you’re reading this (which you’re probably not, I wonder if anyone’s actually read my blog) then don’t take your camera swimming. ;)
