Work and school are still in full force, but Drake and I are over. The weather sure is lovely, though. Funny how a beautiful day makes you appreciate the small things. Like never regretting a dramatic green wall. Or that flowers are even better through a macro filter. Or a […]

Most depressing thing ever.
The Good, the Bad, and the Hopeful
GOOD: Yesterday I received my first check from The Capital. $35 for one published assignment. Its not a Pulitzer, but it officially launches me into the realm of professional photojournalism. Barely, but technically. Also, I got an e-mail from a videographer I met in Photoshop last semester saying he needed […]
CAT Career Panel
Usually I don’t go to these kinds of things, and when I do, I find the people trite or the message useless. This time, however, was completely different. So here’s a panel that 1) is relevant to my life 2) is required for class 3) I have to photograph 4) […]
Moving Right Along
After a summer as Senior Assistant at The Picture People, going through three Studio Managers, several employees and thousands of customers… I quit.

So far this is pretty much the most exciting semester ever, despite that classes don’t start until 2pm, […]
Finally, I installed Akismet and my life is so much cleaner now. I don’t get as many e-mails, but the lack of spam here is beyond delightful. Why didn’t anyone recommend this to me before? Let me try and expand on my last entry, which was entirely too long ago. […]
Picture People is pretty awesome, having paintings for homework is not. Moving out soon; haven’t seen the new house though. LOVE Ugly Betty.
Almost Forgot to Add a Title
After a second interview with Picture People, I finally have a job there, starting on the 24th. The plan as far as I understand it, has me working there as a photographer and training as a manager this semester while I wrap up things at Medieval Times, and working as […]
Its official: one of the courses I’ve enrolled in this fall (Color) is being taught by the mother of one of my violin students, who also lives just down the street from me. This could get awkward very quickly. In other news, I had quite a lovely interview with Picture […]
