so i've decided more than one blog is too many for me and i've been neglecting my photo blog. so i'm saying bye bye to posting on pleo. instead i'll be posting on my photo blog.
i really feel that the pleo world is too much like the close minded coc world. and thats not who i am. so i'm saying good bye.
my new blog will be more who i am now. the real me, raw and uncensored. :)
feel free to read.
so guess what i'm going to talk about.... yeah you guessed it, work.
i love how parents always think their kids are perfect.
take this mom on saturday... i was photographing her 3 year old daughter who was being a pain and not wanting to listen or smile...
so in the middle of the shoot, the girl turns and looks right at me, sticks her finger up her nose, digs around, pulls out a booger and eats it.
to which her mother says "she's never done that before... "
yeah sure lady... of course your child is perfect. and she just happen to pick this moment to start eating her boogers. get real.
in other work news... we hired a new girl. named LaHeather. she's white. giggle giggle.
made myself seem really old at work the other day...
a song came on and a coworker commented that it came out when she was in 5th grade.
i thought for a second and realized that i was in 11th grade when the song came out.
she laughed at me and called me old.
speaking of my job... sorta...
i just finished a shoot the other day, and i got to thinking about how i have no problem being a complete idiot and a goofball in a shoot to make kids laugh... Also i have overcome my fear of going up and talking to strangers...
it is amazing how i got over all that in just a couple months.. :)
i'm turning over a new leaf.
i know i haven't been the friend i should be. i've neglected and pretty much turned my back on my old friend down here... time to reconnect.
it is hard though. i've got a lot going on in this little head of mine.
in other news, i need recommendations on a new book to read.
1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Amazing book. it has some language and some pretty intense situations. but the way it is written is very well done. pretty much it is about a boy who is writing letters to someone about everything going on in his life b/c he feels like he can't talk to anyone around him about it. It is a coming of age kind of book, that isn't like all the other coming of age books out there. pick it up and give it a read.
2. I Love Everybody (and Other Atrocious Lies) by Laurie Notaro.
HILARIOUS. sarcastic. satirical. one of the funniest books i have ever read. again there is a lot of language, so it won't be a book for everyone. but it is one of my favorites. the author talks of life without kids (and not wanting them) and living a a world consumed with having babies. she talks about the work world and the many different people she has worked with and for.
3. Scratch Beginnings : Me, $25, and the Search for the American Dream by Adam Shepard
Great book. kind of a social experiment on a large scale. He graduated from college. got a duffle bag some clothes and $25 and moved to a strange town to prove that in a year you can start with nothing and with hard work you can get on your feet and be self sufficient. it is amazing to see how if someone really wants to, they can better their lives and actually live the american dream. also i thought it was amazing just how much stuff we as americans think that we "need" to have in our lives. i highly recommend this book to everyone.
4. The Shack by William P Young
eh. not my kind of book. too preachy and far fetched for my tastes. i don't need a book to tell me who jesus is. everyone i talk to about this book absolutely loves it. i think i could like it if i read it at a different time in my life. and i'm not even finished with it. i read about 3 pages and get bored out of my mind. pick it up and read it if you want to...
currently not reading anything... but that will change in a couple days.
