i was adding films to my letterboxd when i realized that the reason why i grew up enjoying movies was because i was exposed to a lot of it growing up, we'd always have movie nights and my parents would indulge me with cartoon CDs. i also remembered why keeping track of things got instilled me, there was a moment back in my childhood when i wanted to write every single movie I've seen, and felt bad when i couldn't remember the title. i remember watchin until the very end credits of new york minute just so i could list down its title to my list.

i got my first dSLR when i was 18 and it's still the same camera that i use it up to this day. i named it maxxes . when i was in my 3rd year in college, i got a vintage film camera from an old camera shop in quiapo and named it bazooka . it took me 3 months before i got my first film developed. i learned that film slrs were a lot more difficult to use compared to point and shoot. i got an instax when i was 19, it was pink, my favorite color, i named it polly . i recently got an aquapix which i named mono because it's black and white, it's a cheap film camera which i learned from a film cam hobbyist, it was her favorite.
