Since receiving my Nikon D70s in December, I’ve been taking pictures every day. Well, at least almost every day. I’m happy that finally I’m to the point that I don’t really need to edit every picture! A couple may need a quick white balance fix or something easy. However, a lot of the pictures I take don’t need to be edited at all!! Now I can edit for fun if I want.
I’ve lots of awesome actions from Everyday Elements that let me play with my pictures. I love seeing how my good photo can be turned into something different. Here a couple of my most recent favorites:
I’m sure that there is still some technical issues with my pictures. But I think for now, I’m on the right track on my photography journey. At least I’m farther than I was a few months ago.
It’s a Saturday night and I’m waiting for Monday morning. Never thought I’d say that I need it to be Monday so I can go to work..lol. But Monday could bring some big changes for me. It’s just a matter of waiting and finding out.
I won’t give too much away, but it could finally be my chance at a promotion. It’s the promotion that could change so many things for me. We aren’t poor by any means, we provide for our family but there isn’t much left at the end of the week. This promotion could help change that.
It’s also the difference between a job, which I love, and a career that I know I would love and excel at. I’ve been waiting for something like this to come up for a few years since graduating with my business degree. I feel as if this position would be perfect for me and it’s right up my alley.
I have lots of great memories from my childhood. But when asked about a favorite, there is one that always comes to mind. It’s rather silly and it involves my cousin whom I grew up with. We were born one day apart and our moms were literally in the same hospital room. Her and I grew up together and we had a blast.
It was summer and I can’t remember how old we were. We were young, like elementary school age. We saw my sister and her friend sitting in a dresser drawer. It was a lower dresser and it had two drawers across. We asked what they were doing and they said they were playing boat. When they were done, we decided that we wanted to play and hopped into the drawers. If my little sister and her friend could do it with no problems, we should be able to do as well.
We slightly rock the drawers as if we were on the ocean in our boats. After a few minutes, we could feel the dresser starting to tip forward. Before we could get out, the dress fell forward and we were stuck. There wasn’t a ton of room between the dresser and the bed so we were stuck in the middle but under the drawers. We started to yell for help but my house was being remodeled and the workers were running their machines so no one heard us. After what felt like eternity, my sister came in. We told her to go and get my mom to help us. Instead of telling my mom, she gets side tracked by freshly baked cookies.
My mom comes in and helps us out of the dresser. Luckily we were not hurt at all and we just laughed and laughed. See, I’m one that if I get hurt or anything like that, I laugh hysterically. I think it’s a coping mechanism. LOL.
To this day, this story gets brought up almost every time we are together. It’s hilarious to us now. We just can’t believe that we thought we could sit in a dresser and it would be alright.
Her and I have so many stories and memories that we shared through high school. But this is always the first memory that we laugh about.
I’ve been absent from here for awhile. I can’t really explain why, except for I just haven’t been feeling blogging. Nothing bad happened and I find it strange since blogging was my biggest passion for quite some time. Every day I think, “I should write about this or that,” and then I don’t.
My mornings are pretty hectic. Since cutting my hair short, I now have to wash and fix my hair in morning. Not only do I need to get myself ready for work, I need to get my son up and ready for school and daycare. This all needs to be done and out
