So things here have been slow lately. Christmas break left me to lick my wounds, recover, and begin to enjoy life a little at a slower pace. Andrew and I are now engaged and planning a wedding. He finally moved in the middle of December, and things have never been better. I keep thinking of how I am looking forward to practicing a new signature, and how foreign the idea seems every time I sign a receipt or give my name to someone. I am trying to repair ties with my mother, and we are going to go dress shopping in a few weeks and settle on a dress (I have two to choose from, so she will be able to help!). So overall, life is swell and oddly transitional.
Things on the work front though have been a catch all of nothingness. A few interviews, one bite, and a long waiting period. In the meantime, I have a part-time gig at the school I work at, and a few classes in the future just in case I can’t find work once May rolls around. I miss money, but this reprieve has been nice.
You would think that I would have time for more photography and begin to develop that particular skill. I still have a lot of photos from Ireland that I need to post, and yet no real motivation. I wanted to take a photography course, but it did not work out so well with my work schedule. My plan is to sign up for a small workshop once the refund hits my account again. I have taken a few photos just to practice and review how to use the camera in manual. My next step is to go out and practice in public. I heard the star tower near me is a great place to photograph some stars and a lovely city scape of Phoenix.
But until then (which will hopefully be soon), I just have a few photos that I thought were great!
My formal living room has a cornucopia of furniture from my grandmother. These pieces hold a lot of sentimental value, and I managed to capture some of the special qualities of these pieces:
On one of these cloudy days in Phoenix, we got a glimpse of not just one, but two rainbows. I am unsure as to whether I like these at all, but the color and lighting is interesting:
Until next time- E
