"pro bono", a project, and a lack of wisdom.

thinking about certain things makes me queasy.
but that's not what i'm here to talk about.


i've had an adventure these last couple years.
starting my photography inquisition,
graduating from high school,
lived in CA for a month and spent time with sweet kiddos and future sister/brother-in-law whom i love to eternity,
had a couple of different jobs,
took a year off from school.
starting a new job next week.

i guess it's not too exciting, considering there were so many more exciting things i could have done, but oh well.

however, i feel my photography adventure is coming to an end, at least doing it for money.
i really don't like doing it for money. it's becoming a chore.. actually.. it always has been.
i've always stressed about time limits, expectations, etc.
it's time i do it for me.
i will offer shoots for other people sometimes, but i want this to be more of a hobby.
which is funny, people usually want to make money from it, not the opposite.
but this is my decision.
not because of other people's criticism or choice.
because i feel it is what is right for me.


on to fun stuff:
i'm working on a rather large "project"
it included wandering around goodwill with my lovely friend alison.
in the process, we found the most beautiful shirts..
 i make super cute faces when wearing such flattering shirts.
(i wish i had evidence of alison's equally sexy shirt)
I'm sad to report, we didn't purchase these... NOT! obviously they were awful.

another part of the project included crafting with my oh-so-adorable friend haley.stew . go check out her blog to see what she made!

this part of the project is not quite finished. but when it is, i will share it. :]

i will announce what the project is soon. promise.


at my current job we have fun.. most of the time.
we got to work in Home Theater the last couple weeks.
here is burtney (brittany). "HEY! Are you recording?" no burtney.. just a picture. hehe.

last night we made the biggest screen we've ever made. 38 ft x 75-ish ft..?

 on my way to work one day i saw this man on his motorcycle who had one. single. GIGANTIC... dreadlock that went down to his buttox. and i mentally vommited. no offense, sir.


last week i had my wisdom teeth removed. i am no longer wise.
please excuse this scary picture of myself.. but who doesn't have a picture of them self after wisdom extraction?
fat face. it only lasted the first two days. and i didn't really feel any pain the whole time.

in my bored moments i painted my nails.. an ugly shade of NEON pink. on accident.. the lighting was dim when i did it.

i was also spoiled by my mom. she made me lots of mashed taters, soup, and.. smoothies.
vanilla bean ice cream, white chocolate chips, and strawberries.


i got a new job.. i start some time next week.
i will be working for Chase bank.
i get a badge with my name (and picture?) on it.


i suppose that is all the "exciting" things i have to offer for amusement.
i'm off to do important things including giving the job news to my boss. meh. and laundry.
