Oh Goodness.

So, I know that it's been forever since I've written.  I'm sure that most of you have completely forgotten that I exist and I don't blame you.  I think since I haven't written in so long, this is going to be a photo dump/life summary post.  I've been soooooo busy since I last posted with school and all sorts of things that I haven't had much time for pictures, which is sad.

There've been Farmer's markets. . .

With amazing donuts.

And new lenses (this one is my roommate's.  It's actually a wide-angle, but I discovered that it works like a fish-eye if you flip it around.)

Bubbles. . .

And more bubbles. . .

Walks up the top of the hill with my lovely roommate.  This isn't her normal picture face, in case you were wondering.

See?  Lenses.

Flowers. . .

In which my stripey shirt makes an appearance. . .

This is essentially what my desk has looked like for the past month or so.  It's all in preparation of something you'll see a few pictures down.  Patience.

Picture day where a couple of friends and I decided last minute to make fake facial hair for everyone in our class.

Which wasn't actually that hard.  Look at the size of our class.  So tiny.  (We get to wear robes at my school because we're cool like that.)

And after pictures a party in the middle of the country with a whole roast lamb AND  a goat.  Because we live the good life.  

With fantastic lighting.

And photogenic people. . .

The meat was pretty amazing, btw.


More bubbles.

The best purchase of my life.  $180 brand-new, never been worn shoes.  $5 at Goodwill.

And this is why my desk was a mess.  The Fall Market.   Well, not really.  This is my sister-in-law's stuff, but we shared a table.

And this is still not my stuff.  This is my sister-in-law's sister's stuff.

Aren't these cards so cute?

Ah, here we go.  My part of the booth.

Mel came by and bought a beard hat.  Unfortunately, she didn't keep it, but gave it to her brother.

More birthdays.  Breaking open glow-sticks and giving yourself cancer is fun.

And I think that brings you about up-to-date.  Just remember that it's all those things + and insane amount of school + various other parties/birthdays/events etc.  Blurgh.  This might be the last post for a while.  just soes you knows.

With that, here are some more shots from the photo-shoot with my lover-ly friend Maris.

















Hi there.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Hey all, so, I did not in fact fall off the face of the planet.  I've just been busy.  I'm back at school and frantically preparing for tomorrow morning (well, not right now, it is the Sabbath, after all) because I chose to go to a school that assigns hundreds of pages of reading to be done by the first class, which happens to be at 8:00 Monday morning.  Ah well.  That's not the point.  The point is that I'm back and finally posting pictures.  AND, because I've been so bad about this lately, I think that I have two pictures for each prompt.  

Here we go.

1. Against the light

The last week I was home, in the evening at sunset, the fields would have a layer of mist over them.  In my head these pictures turned out much better, but in my head I also own the best camera and lenses money can buy. 

2. Frame within a frame

I just got my first lens (other than the 18-55 mm that my camera came with) a few day ago and this is one of my new favorite tricks. 

3. Best part of my day

Food.  The end.  Okay, so it might not be the absolute best part of every day, but it's consistently in the top 3.

4. Buttons

So, this prompt was the only one that I didn't have to pictures for.  In fact the one that I have is a stretch, but legos have those little sticky-uppy bits that look button-like, right?

5. Ink

Nail polish, ink, it's all the same, right?

This one's a little more legit.  Every year at my school the incoming freshmen sign 'The Book' at convocation.  

Well, this was fun, but I have to go cry about all the work I have to do before tomorrow.  

Okay, I won't do that, instead I 'll be happy and enjoy my Sunday.

Also, don't forgot to enter my giveaway here if you haven't already.  Right now your chances of winning are pretty darn good.
