I ended my internship a few days later than planned, moved in the pouring rain and intense fog, unpacked, made the house a mess, went home for Christmas eve, drank with my family, then got them wasted by playing all kinds of drinking games, woke up at 4 am to open gifts on Christmas, ate a sweet breakfast, left for Jessica's house for dinner at her grandparents, well you get the point I was busy.
Eventually I made it back home and Jessica and I did a 30min photo shoot with my brother who was home visiting for the holidays.

I found myself in Frankenmuth wondering the cold streets shooting two assignments. One about shopping in the Frankenmuth where there is always some kind of festival going and the other was an assignment about a ceremony they were having. It was cold and my nose, toes and finger tips received the worst of it.
I really didn't have a lot of good art for shopping and of course my hands just had to be full when I saw this. So I literally dropped everything I had in my hands and ran up to the window. People were staring at me and the girls thought I was just as weird when I went inside and asked where their mom and dad were. They gave me "ohh shit eyes" and turned away and didn't say anything. I felt like and ass asking random people if the two girls were their daughters, but after about 5 or 6 people I found their mom and she was more than thrilled to give me their info for the paper.

So I was sick and tired from working 9 days in a row and a top of my other 4 stories I was told they absolutely needed an A1 weather feature for the light snow we received two days before Thanksgiving. After driving around for a while and a few failed attempts at making a nice feature I decided I could get a safety shot up above the highway by the Titabawasee Bridge on I-75. So I hiked up the over pass only to sprayed by a semi-truck traveling at least 60 miles and hour. I drenched from head to toe in slushy dirty snow/water and all I could do was laugh. It was something you would only see in a movie. So I drove through the SVSU campus which I never use enough and got out of my car to shoot some kids making a snowman and then they made snow angels as I froze to death from being wet.
