Only Happy When It RainsPosted: November 11, 2011 | |
It was insanely overcast yesterday when I took these photos, though it didn’t rain. I like rain, but I don’t like dry and overcast days because they make me homesick. All I need is the smell of incense and it’ll take me right back to Lunar New Year (which is actually a long holiday in Vietnam, sort of like Christmas break, though only a few countries beside us celebrate it now.) I’ve missed six Lunar New Year holidays since I came to the US, because it’s always around February and never coincides with any holiday over here.
Anyway, to brighten up a gray day, I added some (sort of) complementary colors to my outfit and take pictures in front of the most contrasting thing I could find. Works out pretty well, don’t you think? Looking at these photos, you’ll never guess that the sky above me looks like this:
In other news, it’s 11/11/11. I don’t get the excitement over days like these at all (I’m guessing there will be a bigger to-do next year on 12/12/12 because it will be the last), and my reaction is no more than “Huh, cool” and a shrug, but you’re welcome to make any wish later tonight at 11:11.
