Starting over

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. It’s been a little over a year now, so I decided to read my older posts and it was really neat reading about what I did back then. So anyway I think I want to start up blogging again, so we’ll see how that goes.

A lot has happened in a year, but the biggest thing to me is graduating high school and starting college. So I started this fall, and we’re like 3 weeks in now. By now everyone knows what classes they have to go to, so no more excuses being late, haha. I’m taking Math 70, Geography 101, College Orientation, Biology 101, weight lifting, and golf. For a total of 15 credit hours. I really like everything so far, I had a pretty good idea on how everything worked because I took dual credit classes last year. I turned 17 in July (the 3rd), so I’m fairly young for a college student. It can be intimidating at times, but I’m getting used to it. It’s also strange seeing people who look like they’re in their 40’s in class haha.

As far as jobs go, I worked at a saw mill through the summer, it wasn’t the most exiting job in the world, but at least I know that I won’t be working at a mill anytime soon! šŸ™‚ I would always be covered in sawdust when I left work, so I was always exited for the shower when I got home šŸ™‚

Right now I’m looking for a job, I sent in my application to my counselor, she said she would look over it and let me know it there is anything that needs to be fixed or whatever. So that’s what I’m currently waiting on.

Photography. Well I’ve really gotten more into photography this last year. I’m not sure how much I was into it last year, but since I got my iPhone 4S in February, I’ve gotten a lot more interested in it. I’m always learning something new, whether it’s from YouTube, reading Popular Photography, or from various websites, it seems like its an endless learning streak. And I love it. That way I have to constantly challenge myself to see how I could frame a photo better, or look at the subject from a different angle. It’s always pushing me to try something new. The camera I use to take all of my photos nowadays, is my iPhone. It’s nice because I always have it with me, whether I’m meaning to take a picture or not. But of course it’s a phone, so it’s going to have it’s limitations. It’s kind of discouraging when I see people whip out their DSLR’s and I’m just sitting there like, that’s a nice camera you got there. Haha :). But I’ll just have to wait a bit longer for my 5D Mark III :). But until then I’ll keep using what I’ve got, because like the saying says “the best camera is the one you have with you” (except it kinda IS the best one I have lol šŸ™‚

I updated my website layout, so let me know what you think, feel free to see some of my photos over at the Social Networking tab, or whatever else I have over there.

Well I guess I’ll end it here for today, if you made it this far then thank you, Haha. I don’t think I’ll have a schedule to write, just on my free time, or when I feel like I need to share what’s been going on. Sorry for any typos, wrote this on my iPhone šŸ˜€ haha, talk to ya later!
