Camera is still broken...cost an arm and a leg just to send it in...4-6 weeks to get it back and I am sure it needs a new body...which, in essence means new camera...more money...blah, blah, blah...(I am full of blahs today) just an update...some have asked if I have gotten it fixed yet...Nope... But, thank you so much for asking and your well wishes! =)
Using my little trooper for all of these still...still dreaming too...and trying to evaluate where to go from here as far as new equipment...the whole "when" thing...Oh well...
Hope all of you are having a great day...thank you for your continued visits...I am still trying to catch up!
Oh, the Kingyo Red Cap is actually a sweet water fish...
Some months ago I started to work part time, and take a preparatory course (this course is to take the test that was supposed to be the begining of this year, but it will supposely happen only next year). This course finally reached its end on April. I took a couple of weeks off and am now, working in the morning, taking my preparatory courses in the afternoon, I run three days per week in a park after classes, get home, eat, watch the news, and read whatever I have in hands (related to the test I want to take) 'till I find it's time to sleep, usually 22:30. I am now making a lot less money than I used to, but am also studying a lot more in a less stressing way. I was planning to go to USA on June/July this year, but that won't happen because I didn't get enough money (and there was the car problem, and some other unplanned expenses), nor time to go to São Paulo to request a Visa. I was invited to go to Spain on Novermber, and I really would like to go, but that will happen only if I boost print sales sky high. I would also like to go to USA on March or April next year (If the test I want to take really takes place on February as everyone expects), but according to my finances, that seems even harder to happen. The problem with the test is that the last time it took place was in 2005!!! It should had taken place in 2007, 08 and 09! And nobody is sure if it will take place next year.
I'm just saying it all because I kind of said some of it to some people, who told other people whom I hadn't told anything and they got pissed because I hadn't said anything to them, and then there were other people worried about the amount of time I'm still "wasting" with photos and this and that... So, just making things clear, I take a camera where ever I go, so most photos "just happen" and don't take much of my time. The editing takes just as little of my time, lately, no more than 15 minutes. I upload photos usually during lunch time, while my brain is in "roaming mode". That's it... and I'm kind of up set.

I'm so nervous, I graduate the 10th of june and I hope I don't fall on the stage :-S
I don't know why but this week feels weird . Its like something is in the air that follows me in school. Everyone that talked to me last week is practically ignoring me this week. My friends that called me every weekend to hang out, have suddenly stopped. Maybe it was something I said but the unknown bothers me. Sometimes I feel like I complain too much or talk about me constantly. I don't know why. It's not a conceded reason or anything, but maybe because I don't have anything else going on in my life thats fun or exciting, that it makes me subconsciously bring up my problems all the time. I just want to have great memories of my senior year and end the year with great ones too. I miss my friends and classmates. Even though their there, its an empty class room. I know something is up, and I wish someone would just be like, "elena your annoying and thats why we aren't talking to you." If someone did that, at least I would understand. Now I'll go back to photoshop with no text to reply to or plans to make with friends. Where has everyone gone.
Yessss. LOL. This is possibly the weirdest shot I have ever done. I am a veggie see, and holding these slippery blighters was quite difficult. I kept wretching at the smell and thinking how much prettier they would look alive. But I really wanted this shot so forced myself to continue, in the words of mccabe, "do a thing a day that scares you, I secretly crave bogs". Later we delivered the fresh trouters to my dear friend juany for tea time. :-D
I think (don't quote me on this) that this will be the final addition to my obscured collection. The official examination starts tommorrow and runs till friday (wish me luck!) Love you all xx
This was taken on photobooth- if someone has actually looked at all my photos I'm sorry they all seem to be from there but after exams I will get out and take something with an actual camera
I was visiting a college that day. At that moment I had gotten ready and while I was waiting for my family to do the same I felt like a morning person. I never feel like a morning person. I love the idea of it though. I felt like I actually wanted to do something, so I took some pictures. Lighting is all natural, no real editing, but I admittedly retouched-off a zit. Ta- da
