On the Road Again

On the road again in multiple ways. Firstly I am in Grass Valley, CA with my mom and sister to visit my grandpa (aka Poppop). He’s not doing great. He is in the hospital and about to return to a convalescent home. It’s hard trying to stay positive for him while also trying to prepare for when he passes away.

On the bright side it is absolutely beautiful here. It was in the sixties all day with a warm breeze. You can actually smell the trees. I love it here. It’s amazing!

Anywhoozle… The second way I’m on the road again is because I’ve gotten a great start in my 26 Before 26. I’ve had no soda, I took a few pictures, and I took a walk. I’m on a roll. Wish me luck to keep it up!

Photography and My Life

I’ve been looking at DeviantArt again and I’d really like to get interested into photography again.  I kind of wish I could just take a photography class but that is so expensive.  I could get college credit for it but I don’t know if my grandpa would like paying for it just because I want to take photography.  When I was going to take it originally it was okay because I was talking other classes at the same time.   I just looked at the class scheudle for Fall 2010 and there is a class on Fridays from 9am till 1:30pm which would be perfect because I am off on Fridays and I could take Bobby to work and then go to class.

I feel like I need to start doing something. I think this would be a good start.  I honestly have no idea what my grandpa would say if I told him I wanted to just take a photography class.  In high school photography was my favorite class and I was really good at it but as I got older I just didn’t continue with it because I didn’t have the money to pay to develop film and by the time I got a decent digital camera I lose my oompf for it.  I think it would be amazing to become a professional photographer. However, I’m sure that everyone important to me would think it was ridiculous.  I’ve always loved photography but I know I’m not any good at it anymore.

*sigh* I guess I should stop my self loathing and just get over it.  I think I’ll just ask my mom and see what she thinks about me asking my grandpa to pay for a photography class.

Wish me luck.

These are a few of my favorite things…

I am madly in love with StumbleUpon!  These are just a few of the many images I have found surfing around the internet and I really enjoy them.  I have no idea where they came from, I can just tell you that StumbleUpon lead me to them.

It’s always a surprise…

I heart funny men

I wish my cat wasn’t such a jerk, then we’d be the same!

Just a neat photo

I love the show House.  Hugh Laurie is awesome.  The quote makes you think…

There was a important story attached to this one, I wish I had the link.  This man is dying of lung cancer and he wanted his granddaughter to take this photo and share it with everyone.

I love graffiti that has meaning.

My ass is going to look like that one day…

So cute!

I wish I had this kind of amazing digital photography skill

Tell me about it.  I really like this.

Hehe, at least I can admit it!

Just a fact. 😀

So so true.  Not that I’m sad, but when I am, there is no one else I’d rather be sad with

Neat-o!
