Wednesday (10/13/2021) almost beat me DOWN, do you hear me?
Silly things that could've went wrong, seemed like it did. Not only did my camera I had for almost a year fizzed out during filming of @thepaintedfoolspainthouse - it fizzed out 3 days before another event coming up this Saturday (10/16/2021).
I've been working so hard on other things that I haven't been sleeping well. We're talking between 3-3.5 hours of sleep. I know, I know.
I'm grieving the departure of a loved one.
The most random and heated test of my patience came out of no where on my way to grab food. HEATED! 🔥
But let's talk about this CAMERA THOUGH lmao:
Whenever it comes to events and things I'm doing for (mostly paint parties) the general public - I like to be prepared days in advance - sometimes weeks, ya'll lmao.
Bags will be packed with supplies - the trunk will be loaded - and I'll always pack extras just in case. Days and days in advance. Batteries are charged, materials are double and triple checked. Full check list. It gets like that.
So, as someone who loves to be super prepared isn't prepared, I ALMOST started to panic because these types of challenges "never" happen. This happened around 11pm that night. Reached out to Canon to put in for Service Repair. According to my purchase receipt that I uploaded to them, this camera's shutter failed 3 DAYS BEFORE THE WARRANTY WENT OUT. Relief. Zero cost repair.
Good news: It's still covered under warranty
Good news: I had an older camera that I left at my parents house that's in great condition.
Great news: None of this stress is related to past mistakes with relationships lmao.
Lesson: ALWAYS have multiple back-ups on deck.
Lesson: Get an extended warranty if you've made the best investment to begin with.
Lesson: GO TO SLEEP.
Lesson: The setback is minor.
While my M50 baby is currently receiving his repairs, my SL2 delivered for the event on Saturday and all went well.
I'm so grateful.
Still can't wait to get my M50 back, though
