I figured I should make good on my promise to stay on top of livejournal (and Tumblr, since I checked my Tumblarity and found that I was turning into a photoblogger D: That bothers me)

Today I was awoken by the sound of my mom talking on the telephone to a friend of hers. I assumed it was about the interview for a teaching job she'd had earlier this morning, and I was right. What I didn't expect is for her to bring home good news. She got the job! She's been unemployed since March, and my uncle since April or May (we rent our house from him and he basically keeps our family afloat) so the new position really takes a lot of stress of of our family.

Also, my father had two of his friends from out east last week. These are family friends who I've known for my whole life, and it was really nice to see them again. But the better news is that one of them has been in to photography for quite a while and has recently "upgraded" from film to digital--and he's offered to give me one of his old film cameras!

I accepted after some stammering and lots of thank-yous, and I'm quite excited for it; I used film cameras in photography this last year and was impressed by the results. I currently am still holding my uncle's old 35mm camera hostage (I borrowed it for the class I took) because I have pictures left on the roll and wanted to save them for something special, but I'm probably going to go out tomorrow and use up the rest now. I'll take it to Walgreens and get the images put on a disk as well, so that I'll be able to learn how to work with them more.

I've been feeling quite creative recently. Maybe I should finish a few of my projects and share some pictures ^_^

Also, I've been thinking of restarting P365 when I have the new camera and also starting a Mission 101, because sandiekay and lovelydacey both have one. What do you think?

I'm SOO glad (and a bit relieved myself [I can't imagine how relieved you guys must have been!]) that your mom got the job.

I havta laugh at the Daddyman Carbon Copies. I just can imagine three of your dad talking to himself... all day. It's hilarious!

AND YAY FOR CAMERAS!!! There is a camera ad at the bottom of this page. It looks like my daddymans. I'm glad that you're finally getting a film camera! (And probably a good one!) That's gonna be fun. If you take your P365 on that, you might have to update bi-weekly...? for all the pictures you take each day! xD But it will be so worth it, film is so cool! (And that's awesome if you can get it on CD)

Mission 101, all I can say is: Do it.
*Laughs at self*

ANYWAYYYSSS! I'm glad you're having lots of funs recently. I'll show you something cool at James' party tomorrow... if you're actually coming later....!
