so, I just came back from an hour of sitting on the train. before that, I met this girl.
her name is Olivia, or dragonfly-oli, and all I can say ... today was awesome.
I've known Olivia for quite some time now, we got to know each other over DeviantArt and we had talked a lot until we both decided it was time to actually meet in real-life. Since my town is just 40 minutes of train-driving away from hers, I took this chance and visited her. We walked around her town and decided to sit down in a little café and just talk and talk and talk. And literally, we actually just sat there and talked and talked and talked and (drank latte machiato and ate waffles) talked and talked and ... you know, luckily, it wasn't one of those conversations where you start to worry about what to say next. she is such a lovely person and I am glad to have met someone who shares opinions and attitudes towards so many different things and also has the maturity to express them openly.
although we both had taken our cameras with us, we didn't make it to take any photos. okay, maybe I took one photo of those lights that were hung in the streets and that made a beaaaautiful bokeh, but that was just a snapshot to capture those lightings and besides the light, the photo is just boring.
but yeah, I just thought I should brag about how I can meet cool people from DeviantArt because they live close to me. no kidding, but still, this appeared share-able to me. (if share-able is a word)
you should all go and watch Olivia, she is super awesome.

good friend on dA living close to you. I was just so lucky
that I happened to be passing through Hailey's town this
summer vacation. Ugh and you were pretty close to me for
a while too but we couldn't drive any further south! XC
That's a great story, I know what you mean. When I met
Hailey we were able to constantly talk while shooting and
we agreed on so much, it was astounding. I think photographers,
especially in the same "genre" all have the same mind-set.
So it was great and refreshing to meet someone whom you
could find you agreed on nearly everything and talk about
things that your friends at home just don't get. Which I
assume was the same for you. :]
You're awesome, Nikko!!
