So it's been awhile since I've updated. Remember my last journal entry? About my camera?... Well it happened again sometime in November. I feel sooo ashamed of myself since then, I was sooo proud, I was so happy to have my pal back. This could have been avoided! What was I doing at that time!? My sister at the time being was kicked out of the house for couple of weeks, while at this time I was pretty close to keeping an eye on my stuff. I took it with me to school everyday, I was starting to feel pretty safe at home. I was really tired from school and I decided to leave my camera bag downstairs beside my school bag, it became one of the biggest mistake I've done. Sometime during the hours of midnight to 4am my sister found her way inside the house a large sum of money along with my camera with lens, hot shoe wireless connectors and a flash.
Everything gone. I took action and called the police. Report everything that was stolen from us and laid any charges against her. It took awhile to find out where she was hiding out but the deed was already done. The cops never found out who she sold it to and obviously protecting that person who had my belongings.
She ended up in jail for a few weeks until a relative of mine took her in for house arrest up in a north community. She's no longer living in the same city as us. She won't pay back any money she's stolen or my belongings, and I called for an update about my belongings and the cops said they haven't found anything yet and my sister haven't given any names.
At this point I given up that they'll find the camera. I feel so ashamed of myself, I was so proud having it back just to have it stolen again. It's really hard just to swing back into photography, let alone editing pictures. I said it before that camera meant a lot to me my dad got me that for Christmas. Everyone knows that I love taking pictures, this was a way I can meet great people and interact with friends. I really thought about giving up on this hobby for the past few months. Thinking over how stupid I was just to leave that bag there for her to snatch it away. I shouldn't have left it there defenseless
Well I think it's time make a few sacrifices and sell some of my stuff I have just so I can get a decent camera. I still have some pictures I can post up but I can't bring myself editing them. I don't know it just feels foreign to me but I'm really sorry to those who are waiting... I'm sincerely sorry. I will try my best.
I'm gonna try to get back into photography.
