Catching Up

Today was spent catching up on things that were supposed to be done yesterday.  I somewhat succeeded in that task.  Not entirely, but I am pleased with my progress.  I will be completely caught up and where I want to be by the end of the weekend.

Tonight I went out to talk with someone regarding a photography gig, however, that did not happen.  I did, however, get to see and hear some good, live, and local music.  I must say, I really love the venue Elwood's Music Hall.

Health-wise:  Back to feeling great and with energy, just a slow start until my coffee kicks in.


Lost Day

Today was a lost day.  Not only did I not get anything I wanted done, completed; I didn't even get them started.

I woke up feeling 'off'.  Not bad, breathing was fine.  I was just not feeling 'right'.  After my morning coffee, I felt a little feverish and later on a migraine developed.  Darkness and napping on the couch became my day.  So much for getting my closet cleaned out, new printer set up or Vapour to the vet for his shots.  All of that is now put off until tomorrow.

I really dislike it when I get nothing accomplished when there are things I had planned to complete.  Today was definitely a lost day for me.

Health-wise:  Migraine, and a minor fever.  Breathing was fine.  Just blah.

The End and Beginning

It is over!  I finally made my last payment on my car!  This excites me because it is the first time in my life that I have owned my vehicle.  No more car loan!  No more car payments!  Hopefully it will continue being very good to me for a while.

Also today, I broke down and purchased the multipurpose printed that I have wanted for a while.  With the sale and trade-in bonus, I got my new Epson Artisan 810 printer for about 45% of it's regular retail price! It is wirelessly connected to my network and does everything I need it to do, and it does it all well.

Thanks to a active kitty cat, I didn't get much sleep last night, but that didn't affect me much today until after supper, and then I rested/napped for a little while.  I'm now ready for bed, and hopefully it will be a quiet night tonight.

Health-wise: Today was great, even with little sleep, I had energy and my breathing was good.  Today has been one of the better days of late, and I'm hopeful that tomorrow will be even better.


Photo Decisions

I'm loving life these days.  I really don't know why, but I'm happy and things keep seeming to go well for me.

I've made the decision to take this year as a growth year for me.  Right now, I'm focusing on my education.  I'm learning more and more about photography through near daily tutorials, and learning more about the mac every time I use it!

As I work on my photography, I have gone through many of my older photos (some, I'm sure will show up in future Photo Fridays) and notice I have worked a lot in dark, club lighting and event lighting.  Now, I am trying to learn how to properly light with studio lights that a friend of mine had loaned me until I get my own lighting.

I need to make a decision on how I want to stylize my lighting -- portable studio lights or the strobist style.  Both have pros and cons for how I have worked and how I plan to work.  As life is, I need to make the best decision for me.

I can't wait to see where this brings me and my photography.

Health-wise:  Today was a very good day.  No stomach issues, breathing was good, as was my energy level.


Took The Weekend Off

It was great!  I have to say, I did  absolutely nothing all weekend.  I stayed home, barely even looked outside and accomplished 100% vegetative state!

I have been pushing myself lately to make sure I accomplish something each day, and you know, as much as I am pleased with my progress and achievements so far this year, something was missing.  What I realized was, I wasn't letting myself just be, just relax.  This weekend I did.

I know it was Valentine's Day weekend, but being single and not wanting to be around all the 'lovey-dovey' couples, there was no better time than to just be with me.  I sat around the apartment, randomly watched tv shows, napped and enjoyed the company of my cat, Vapour.

It was great!  I must remember to take time for myself more often.  Must remember one of my favorite movies lessons.

Health-wise:  It was a weird weekend, and today was a little off -- breathing was good, but stomach cramps from the adjustment to the iron supplements were annoying.
