Well, hello there.
I’m not sure if I’m officially “back” yet, since it’s not 2012 and life continues to be unexpected, but I’ll be trying to blog whenever I have a minute (like today) because I realized yesterday that I miss blogging a lot. Except for the part where I have to take pictures in the rain. That, I could do without.
So my news might be a little anticlimactic for some of you, but two things: one, I got a tripod. Which means that I will now be able to take pictures in more places because I don’t have to search for a post or a garbage can or a barbecue to set my camera on, and I can take more angles and… do more stuff. This also means that when it rains, I can set the tripod and camera under a shelter, and stand in the rain and not worry about the camera getting wet.
I don’t really want to get wet either, but… y’know.
Second: I quit my job. I won’t be jobless forever– after the new year I’ll start looking again– and I don’t really want to say too much about why I quit because… it’s just not relevant to you guys. But it was a sticky situation and, while I still like my old boss and love my old coworkers, I couldn’t deal with a lot of the things that were going on.
Mostly, it was just too much stress. My job was making me cry, and I’ve always said that if a job makes me cry a lot, it’s not a job worth having.
And third… well, I do have more news, but I think I’ll save it for another day. Because I’m mean like that. I have to keep you coming back, don’t I?
If you noticed that most of these pictures have some sort of blur in them, it’s because I have to get used to my camera’s timing again. Going for 21 days without taking pictures has messed up my sense of timing. I’ll get back with it, I promise.
Also, by the time I got to taking detail shots, the mist had turned into a downpour. So I didn’t get a picture of my owl earrings, which were a Christmas gift, but I’ll show them to you later.
You might not really be able to tell, but I dyed my hair back to mostly normal. The red is still pretty apparent, but this is more what my hair looks like when it’s its natural color.
I have to say, these shoes are the most impractical shoes I’ve ever bought. I got them years ago, and lost them for an entire year, and just recently found them… and I am so not going to wear these anywhere where standing is imperative.
They’re pretty, though.
Also, this skirt’s tag says “Fashion for 5’3″ and under.” I have to say, if you were 5’3″ or under, this skirt might make you look even shorter. But I could be wrong.
I hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday!
