I shot almost 1100 photos this weekend, Opening weekend at the Bristol ren faire. I shot RAW. And its taking me forever to get through them all.
These are the eyes of someone who spent two days in the epic Bristol dust, missed two nights of pain meds (muscle relaxers, that is), and spent all day staring at the computer monitor with RAW photo files.

Today was just, whoa.
I woke up at 6:35 AM where I got greeted with a sore throat, a stuffy nose and a friggen headache. I made myself food and sat down and watched countless horror movies until I got bored and went and turned my computer on.
GUESS WHAT GUYS?! I FINALLY cleaned my room. Well…I still have to sweep and "dust". But my form of dusting is getting a wet wash cloth and scooping up all the dust on my fan blades and other objects around my room, like my bookcase or vanity. It’s currently 9:01 PM and you’re probably surprised why I’m doing this pretty early compared to when I normally upload.
The past couple days I’ve been waking up at 3 AM and going to bed at 5 PM. But today I stayed up because my attention was on my room. I got mostly everything off my floor. My closet is semi organized and I think I cleaned up pretty well. Now all I have to tackle is my night stand, my bookcase and that huge table in my room. My mom put this long table in my room because we got a new dining room table. She put it in here a while ago and it’s been taken over by clothes, boxes, various posters and purses and such. Underneath it is even worse. Boxes and Boxes of packed stuff along with 2 large trash bags that have the rest of my stuffed animals in them. Underneath the table is also where the cold vent is located. Since my room is RIGHT ABOVE the garage, the vent over by my 2 windows lets alot of cold air in my room. Where as, if I have a ton of shit piled there, it wont be as cold in my room like it normally would.
Besides all that, Heather stopped over today. It was only for about 5 minutes but we got to see her. I kinda got mad because she didn’t give me a hug before she left. She just….left. Since I am a really lovey dovey kinda person, I always like hugs. I hate when people pull away. I’ll give them a hug and they’ll just think it’s gonna be a quick one. I, however love long big bear hugs. I don’t know…I’ve been really stressed out with the whole water being off and John going through girls.
truth: I get mad over the stupidest little things. I get mad if John doesn’t have any shirts to wear to school and he goes in my room and takes one of mine. I also get mad when my mom keeps bugging me to do shit over and over and over again. I get pissed when I’m in my room having a good time blasting my favourite music and my mom comes in and closes my door. I get mad when people don’t appreciate me. I get mad when people don’t like to hug me or get close to me. I get extremely mad when I see something kickass online that I want and I don’t have the money to get. eh; I’m a party pooper, but I can be pretty amazing at times.
Plus, on a side note, John and I haven’t really been talking to Mom. She’s been too interested in her damn computer then us. The only time she gets up is when she wants to smoke, go to the bathroom or eat. But frankly, I haven’t been seeing her eat so who knows if she even is. Meanwhile, we pretty much ran out of TV dinners, there’s only one left, plus those tiny waffles, which I kinda think were pointless to buy.
I still haven’t bathed since getting back from the Radisson and I’m getting sick of having no water. It literally sucks. All the dishes and cups are all piled in the kitchen and we ran out of plastic silverware and those cheap party cups. So, I am currently using the same cup over and over again. It might sound gross but, eh; what are you gonna do, ya know?
We make the best with what we got.
Tomorrow I hope I will bathe, dust/sweep my room, paint my nails [again] and uhhh Hang some posters and get creative.
I find it funny how every person on Flickr has their rooms looking "lived in" We’ve been here for 3 years or so and some stuff are still packed in boxes. We recently packed more stuff in boxes because we were supposedly moving but things got mixed up and now we’re waiting on that damn pending appeal. You wouldn’t believe how many empty clothes hangers I found in my closet. By empty I mean, not being used.
So yeah, I’m gonna probably go to bed. I’ll finish everything tomorrow and hopefully be a little better on the emotion side. <3

(Day 32) My computer bit the dust this morning so I spent the better part of my day setting up my backup unit (ha, I said unit). I got to switch out drives and wireless cards and do all sorts of fun stuff. No time for this photography nonsense.

click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click. click….
That is how I spent my day today. I had to clean dust off scanned images for my photo paper.. and it took forever!
Today I felt like a clicker. Not a student. Not a photographer. Just a clicker.

The light at home is always so bad that I can *not* see this dust. Of course, I was shocked to see that my screen was so dusty.

I was looking the artworks in a gallery, inside a shopping center, when I nottice that the artist left a sideview mirror (vintage style) on the right top of his mixed paint/sculpture.
Back at home, I was examining the pictures on computer and some of them makes me think about Man Ray’s photos:
So, I start to make some changes in the pictures. But, in the end (there always one "however"), I think that the results have more resemblance with Silver Surfer Comics:
Ah, yes! No caps, as promissed.

OK, so one computer had already bit the dust by this point, but we were still basically in a good mood. We walked around downtown taking photos. This was taken in a sculpture. Then we got home to discover computer #2 had bit the dust… a weeping and gnashing of teeth ensued. Anyway… I’m just amazed I was actually able to get this up while it was still today. Yay new computer!

The dust is "scary" because I say so. And it rhymes with "fairy."
This is better viewed large.
The dust is fuzzy because of the depth of field not allowing for it to be in focus at the same time I am.
Today went like this:
– I woke up just before noon. Really late for me.
– Empty house.
– Called Mom.
– Found out Mom was at the mall.
– Mom came home.
– We were planning to go shopping somewhere. Don’t remember for what though.
– Hannah came home from school early.
– Mom and I went out and took Hannah, after a painstaking process of deciding where to eat [which turned out to be Boston Market].
– We ate.
– We planned to go to the grocery store after we shopped for other stuff first.
– I wanted to go to Newbury Comics. There’s a CD that Hannah wants [and she already knows that I want to get it for her, so I feel relatively "safe" posting this here; even if she finds out, she already knows].
– We went shopping.
– When we finished at the first store, we ended up going home.
– Got home.
– Took a bazillion pictures.
– Got frustrated that my cat wouldn’t leap onto my feet for a photo.
– Loaded files onto my computer.
– Right-click > Open With… > Flickr Uploadr
– Started typing this thing.
– Wanted to stop typing.
– Kept going.
…Uh, and now I’m getting off the computer…
There was a bunch of other stuff that I left out, but that was basically my day…
