For the love(?) of going to school forever...

So I'm supposed to only have 3 semesters left before I graduate.

I know that with Nathan it'll take longer...I can be patient. I've given BYU-Idaho too much money and worked on too many assignments, projects, finals, and gone to too many classes while morning sick to quit now!

But, Mitch and I walked into a camera supply store last week. It was amazing!

We walked out of the store having decided that I need to just GO for this photography obsession of mine.

I've never been very good, and I've always been intimidated by photography; it's art! I'm bad at art!

I'm adding a cluster in photography to my degree...or I might add it as a second minor. I haven't decided yet. We'll see where I am when I get the 12-credit cluster done.

This idea started forming when I finished saving up for a DSLR camera. It took me about a year to save up for it! I bought it used from a friend who took very good care of it. My new friend's name is Olympus E-500. It came with 2 different hoods and lenses and I love it. I've been taking pictures and experimenting everywhere. Like I said, I'm not very good, but I hope that'll change!

I just want to have good pictures no matter what our financial situation...we're poor in college and will be in grad school for sure, and I don't want to miss sweet little moments that are captured best by a professional photo session, just because I can't afford them.

So we'll see what happens. I'll be able to take my first class September 2011!


  1. That sounds like so much fun! I know what you mean about being too poor to have professional pictures because I am right there with you.

    Good luck with all of your classes. I couldn't even imagine trying to go to school and take care of Jasper. You are super woman :)

  2. Good luck! I'm totally in the same boat at you :) haha but excited to give it a whirl. And I like you suck at art. I'm kind of dreading the drawing class I have to take next semester (embarrassing) but it puts me on the right path so hey! haha

  3. Your pictures of the temple and conference center are great! I think you'll do fine. And I definitely wish we had had a better camera when E was a baby. Some of the pictures, looking back, are just sad. Have fun with that!

    ps. love your new background. So cheery!


I'd love to hear from you! :o)
