for me it was a kind of surprise as I get to know that I was yesterday in our biggest local newspaper. I am pretty happy that the mum of my office-colleague called my colleague at shortly after 7:30am and informed us about me being in the newspaper - so I was at least a little bit prepared for all the comments and attention I would get later on during that day. @__@
I never thought that a newspaper article would make someone that important and interesting. I do not want to sound like a poser, but to be honest I guess me in the newspaper, was THAT topic of the day during the workday and also in the evening.
But, why Im in the newspaper at all!?
Last spring I had a shooting (in Lolita-Fashion of course!) for a local exhibition called "52 Wochen". It is a photo project which shows the variety of the people living in the Euregio Maas-Rhein. You can see pictures of the Shooting here: 52 Wochen - Photo Shooting.
The exhibition opened officially last November, I also had visited the exhibition opening which was a great experience: 52 Wochen - Exhibition Opening.
Marco, who took the photos of me for the exhibition, told me that some of the portraits will be also printed in our local newspaper... I almost forgot about that fact and then well, yesterday it seems like it was my turn. ^__^6 It was an absolute strange feeling, seeing myself in the newspaper.. and the news article about me was pretty big.. I didn't expected that it would be that large.. no wonder that everybody instantly recognized or better discovered me! I am really happy that almost all of my colleagues are pretty cool and nice persons and everyone seemed to like the article and the photo. ^___^ Even if I gave only one single person an understanding of Lolita-fashion I am happy!
After my workday was finished, Kuraude und Mochi visited me and the two were at that time probably the two only persons on that day who didn't knew that I was in the newspaper. I am wondering why the hell I was so stupid to tell them that they can see me in the newspaper. >___< After they get to know this, we went, like agreed before, to a pet shop and then we went to a supermarket. They were pretty naughty there and Mochi even asked the cashier if he may get one of the newspaper examples for free because I (his friend) were printed there and in the meanwhile Kuraude had nothing better to do than to lay her copy of the newspaper wide-open at the conveyor belt so everyone could see the article bout me.. >___>" Little Gadflies..
