i finally finished paying for my new-used camera. i should be getting it sometime this week. i can't wait to get my hands on it and start playing right away. (expect a lot of picture blogs soon) i have a wedding to shoot next weekend, so i need to practice up on the settings since it's a little different than my current camera. the quality of the prints are going to be outstanding though. this excites me a lot.

other things that are exciting me right now:

last night, after work, i had a missed phone call from a number i had never seen in my life. luckily, it was followed by a voicemail. lo and behold, it was my friends matt and kristen, whom i haven't seen in over two years. they're traveling right now and wanted to come to greenwood for a couple of days to hang out!! i was so excited to hear that voicemail that i almost started doing kartwheels all over the restaurant. they should be here later on today, and will hopefully hang out for a couple of days since i have time off from work. i'm already trying to plan fun things to do with them while they're here. kristen likes to do wheatpasting and tagging random things around town, so we may have to do a nighttime bike ride after carley's gone to sleep, and tag away. i really like unplanned visits from friends. this has really made my day. i may try to talk them into a photoshoot.

other ways i've spoiled myself this past week:

getting started.

i decided to quit using livejournal. (just now) this seems like the right thing to do.

i don't intend on using this for "journal" type things, but really just to put together random thoughts, show off some pictures, rant, just whatever comes to mind.

we'll see how long i keep this up. over time, this may turn into a more structured blog for photography or baking. but for now, it's going to be random as fuck.
