Tomorrows the Big Day

so tomorrow at 7.45 AM I will be here:

a big grown up office in atlanta

I start my 6 week training tomorrow and to say that I am nervous would be like saying the pope is kinda religious. I am like crazy nervous! 

Tonight I will be driving to atlanta where I will be staying with my parents for the holiday season. Luckily I will still have my carrollton apartment so on the weekends I can come back here to relax and be away from the ciaos that will be my parents house over the holiday season.
In other news...
a boy asked for my digits last night and we chatted and he seems like a nice guy. Im not going to give him an official blog name, like JAB because we havnt even gone on a date, but if we do, he will get his own name. Im thinking of calling him PCBB for Panama City Beach Boy because that is where hes from. Or Red, because he drives a little red truck. not sure yet lol

I have my last tutoring sesion today with Leo, which is sad because Im gonna miss him, but JAB is going to tutor him. He needs the job and it'll give him something to do. 

I also had dinner a few night ago with a nice guy I met online, not much dating potential but a friend, and he told me about a few places around carrollton that might be hiring so I'm gonna go ahead and check them out. A job closer to here would be nice, but it would need to pay as well or better then the Wirpo job to be worth it.

On another note, I am super excited about christmas cards this year! I am planning on sending my own out, separate from my family, because my mom rarely sends them out anymore. Im going to write one of those letters telling people what Ive been up to this year and everything.

I'm also thinking of giving my parents a photo shoot for christmas. We dont have any family pictures and it would be fun. I cant afford to pay a pro in atlanta, most cost $350+ for a 2 hour shoot for 5 people, and that doesnt even include the pictures, so Im thinking of putting an add on craigslist looking for a novice photographger or even a SCAD student. Atlanta ladies - do you know anyone who does photography on the side? 

I've decided this year for christmas Im just gonna ask for money because I really want to buy myself a real camera

For all you ladies who take such fab pictures, which one would you recommend? Im planning to take some photography classes at a local school in the spring bc I am seriously considering starting my own little side photography business.

Im planning on taking a trip here

to buy the camera, as I can try it out and pay 1/2 the cost for it. Any one want to join me for this road trip? 

Well Im off to pack up my car and eat some lunch. Have a fab day!

Good luck with work! I have no idea what that place is, but I'm so excited for you! As for the camera, those look professional, are they digital SLR's? I personally bought myself a cross between the pocket point & shoot and the digital SLR (because that was way expensive and very complicated to use). It's a Fujifilm FinePix s1800. They have a new model if you search on Amazon that I just looked up b/c I'm curious. I know Fujifilm isn't up there as far as "name brands" for cameras, but this is a good camera. It's got better specs than the point and shoots, and it much cheaper (Amazon had it listed at about $160). It had 12MP and an 18x wide angle zoom, which is AMAZING. I love my camera, and a lot of times, you're just paying for the brand names. However, if you are going to take a photography class, a lot of them require you to have a digital SLR and possibly some removable lenses, so I would make sure you get something that would work with the classes if you are serious about them. Those could be about a thousand dollars, by the way, which is too steep for my blood right now, plus the lenses could be just as much (depends on type/brand, etc.) I hope some of that helped you out! Again, good luck on your first day!

unclaimed baggage looks like fun -- what is it?? i don't have any fancy camera advice for you... but we did get family portraits taken by a family friend on one of our cameras and they turned out quite nicely!

Well, my husband just bought me the Canon Rebel XS and I LOVE it! I've heard it's more user friendly than other DSLR's and although I haven't tried other cameras, I can tell you that it is VERY easy to use! Check out my photo blog and facebook page to view pictures I have taken with my Canon:
