In an unfortunate, but expected turn of events, I had to turn in my work camera yesterday, since I’ll be going home over the summer, and it doesn’t belong to me and all that jazz. I am sad about this, because it means that I am entirely without a working camera until I can save roughly another hundred dollars to replace my Nikon 18-55mm lens, and then I get to actually start saving for the new camera that I want, which is a Nikon D800.
(If anyone wants to donate, there are some cool perks to it here. I’d love you forever if you did donate. Or you can just hire me to do stuff once I get my lens replaced.)
That being said, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated, so here’s what’s going on with me. I’ve been working basically nonstop on papers, papers, and more papers. I talked about my 18-20 page research paper a few weeks ago, and I just got the grade back on it, and I got a 95! A 95 is kind of unheard of with how strict of a grader Alan is, and I really am still kind of in shock that that’s what I earned. (Yes, this is the same Alan who let me photograph his hands for my art project.) He allows revisions, and I had assumed that I would need to revise it to get a grade that I was happy with, so this was a wonderful shock for me.
None of the other papers are really worth mentioning, but I’m really really glad that I’m less than a week away from going home. I know I’ll miss my people here, but I miss my folks and I miss my food. PLUS, I get to see my little brother on stage! He’s done theater for three years, and somehow I’ve almost never been able to see him on stage. This year he’s in a play called Ghost Detectives, and I have to say I’m excited to get to see him in it as the grumpy old butler.
I guess I don’t really have a lot else to say today, but for the rest of you that are doing finals, good luck and don’t stress yourself out too much!
