For the first time in 3 years, I bought an objective lens to my slr camera today. It wasn’t easy though because I don’t have so much knowledge about the camera lenses and I’m very careful when it comes to buying expensive stuff because I hate being disapointed. I want my stuff to last and I hate wasting money (yes I’m a wise consumer now. 😀 hehe).
I went to school today not because of lectures but because of an economic experiment with salary. 🙂 It was fun, exciting and a bit disappointing because I expected that I’d get a lot from it. The experiment has something to do with trust, investment, risk and reciprocity. In the end we got a salary based on the result of the experiment. I got 320 NOK (53usd). Not bad right? But it could’ve been better. :p lol ! My friend Michelle participated on the experiment as well and she got 600 NOK plus! 😀
Today, people are very concerned about their diet and how to look thin or slender like the ramp models. We are so influenced by the media and the trends that is out in the market today and that is why most of the youngsters these days tend to do absurd stuff just to get that look/body and to fit into the society. Life before was far less complicated because children did not know the meaning of overweight, calories, unproportional body shape and unhealthy diet etc. They just ate all that was served to them without questions or any reasoning. Children are becoming more insecure of themselves now not only because of the shallow minds of the society but because of their selfish and egoistic parents or relatives who want their children to be more than perfect.
The girl that I was talking about should be thinking about her friends, Barbies, teddy bears, gummy worms and cartoons and not her body weight because she is just a child. Children grow up very fast, we don’t need to rush that.
