So much for that...

Well apparently I didn't get any better about writing in this blog, so just get over it. I'll post when I feel like it. Actually I think a big reason as to why I don't write on this too often is because I hardly get on the computer, I have my phone to check my email and facebook and myspace and google things and yeah... computers are kinda old fashioned. Desktops any way. There are plenty of times when I've been down in my room and wanted to get on the computer but didn't because that would require me to go upstairs and sit in the office which is right next to my parents bedroom and have to be quiet so as not to wake them up. Some day though I will have my own laptop and then maybe I will be better about it because I can stay in my bedroom and still be online.

Life is great! I just want everyone to know that. Don't ask me why though, there is no real explination. Life is just grand and that's all there is to it. I like my job, which I will terribly miss during the summer even though I already have another great job lined up. I have plenty of time to relax and hang out with friends, but that may change once school starts in about two weeks. My life is just great and I'm happier than I think I've ever been, usually I would just describe myself as being content but now I'm actually happy. It's the best feeling in the world!

So yesterday my friend bought a brand new car, all on her very own, and it made me realize something; if I want something I just need to keep with it and I will be able to achieve anything. She had been saving for this car for quite a while and yesterday she bit the bullet, took her dad with her to the dealership and now she has a brand spankin' new car all to herself. How cool is that? I'm struggling to make it paycheck to paycheck right now (granted I've only really had one "normal" paycheck so far with this new job), there's no way I could think about a car. I'm just working on having enough for a nice DSLR (camera) and a laptop. But like I said, I just need to keep my eye on the prize and soon enough I'll have both.

Speaking of cameras now, I've decided to go to school and get my associates degree in photography. I do have a slight problem with that though, I don't have a camera and so while all my friends are out there with their cool cameras having random photoshoots I do nothing but stand by and watch (sometimes model) and wish I had my own camera to do things with. Well ok so I have a camera but it's some cheap little thing from Walmart that cost about $100 two or three years ago. I don't feel much like a photographer. Sometimes it even makes me wonder, as I look at all the cool pictures the people around me are taking, if I have chosen the right line of work to go into. My experience level is nowhere near theirs because they get to practice whenever they want.
