Spartans Pushed Off a Cliff

My camera should be fixed any day now. Can't wait to have it back.

So proud of how well I shot wrestling yesterday. I had 4 assignments and it truly felt like a million. The trophy photo is amazing and I love shooting wrestling. I'll try to put more up tonight.

Waking up can be so hard to do....

Well, so he just left?..

See there comes a point in everyone's life
Where they just start seeing things differently
Or you know they're put in a situation where they have to
I guess it was just his night

If you don't mind, whats his name?

His name is Matt, and I think his fathers name is Matt too, but I don't know

Okay, so what happened next, where did he go from there?

Well he stood in his girlfriend's dorm room for a little while
He couldn't stay there long
I think her father actually felt bad for him
So he offered him a job as a file clerk at his law firm
Nothing special, just sorting papers
And her dad made him a deal he said, if you take this job seriously
And if you start going to school and you're serious about my daughter
I'll help you guys out with an apartment
So he took it, and maybe Matt really didn't want that
Maybe he didn't really want to go to school or work at a place like that
But he also wanted to prove to his father that he was better off without him
That he wasn't a waste

And he also knew that making that deal with her dad would make his dad so much more mad
Because he hated her father
He always said how lazy he was, and he steals peoples money
And he doesn't have a real job, and he doesn't know what it feels like to work
I guess that's the motivation he needed to straighten out his life
But I don't think they ever talked again anyway
So I don't think it really mattered

Amazing what single song can say. I wish I had a photo to put here for you but I have no camera. Maybe I will shoot a roll of film and try to develop it illegally in the lab!

Waking up can be so hard to do....

Happy Thanksgiving.

More updating to come this week. Have a lot to shoot and have a broken camera. Canon said not to expect it back before Christmas and that has me nervous.

In the mean time frequent updates will come and I will be working on my portfolio.

Summer fell right into winter

I won't be shooting the Central/Western game. I'm disappointed; a lot more than I let on and I was really looking foward to having this in my portfolio. Shit happens though and I really have a lot of homework to complete this week not to mention a giant test tomorrow.

Positive news though... I have my interview with the paper on Wednesday morning.
I'm nervous because I want this so bad. I'm just afraid my whole relationship thing is going to keeping me from getting the job I want.

I have so many things I want to change. I want to this department respected again. I want to compete with MSU and MIZZO. I don't ever want to go to the and see they are a head of us on multi-media. It really is an embarrasment to have them putting up shitty photostories and for us to have nothing.

I need a new computer. I need to clean my room, I need to complete my homework and the list continues and continues... Tonight the world is against me and tomorrow I hope it's on my side.

Picture coming in a few.. I'm at work that is why I actually have free time. When they aren't paying me I'm busy. When I am collecting pay I do nothing.

Finding Your Own Way

Today I was walking the UC with so many things on mind. I walk out of Moore and as I walk by Brooks I see something out to the corner of my eye.

What did I see? Something I usually pass up; an opportunity.

It was a chance to get another photo in the paper, a chance to build my portfolio, the chance to build upon my skills and a chance to test my courage.

There was something different this time when I walked by. Do you know what it was? I was frustrated with everything that I managed to keep the fear and anxiety to a minimum.

The results equaled something amazing. Sure the picture isn't perfect and I should have taken more time in getting "the photo" but this isn't about the photo.

This is about finding myself and coming to the conclusion that fear is just in my head. Today made me realize "he" isn't always right. He doesn't have all the answers and grades are subjective and mean shit in the real world.

Enjoy the photo.
