Catch Up: Installment the Second

In continuation of my first installment, I've been writing about what I've been up to instead of blogging the last few months.


3) Spent a few days taking self portraits through a make-shift fish-eye lens. Fish-eye lenses let photographers take those photos that are distorted so it looks as if you're seeing the picture through a bubble or raindrop. Unfortunately those lens attachments are expensive and I was (am) somewhat poor so buying one was a no-go. Instead I bought one of those peep holes that go in doors and attached it to my point-n-shoot camera. The results were not as drastic as I had hoped, but still fun:

I look like I have a HUGE nose in this next one! I bet you'll all enjoy the lovely view :)


4) I applied to, interviewed for, and started attending school again. Woohoo! I'm doing an accelerated program that lets me accomplish a year's worth of work in 4 months. Afterwards I have high hopes I'll be able to start a career instead of just having a job. I've also been dreaming about where to move after I finish. I'll probably stay in the Twin Cities, but I've been considering other options as well (feel free to give me suggestions). I know I move more than the average person, but I feel liberated by my singleness and lack of ties. I could go anywhere and meet anyone. I love that feeling more than almost anything else. Some places I've been thinking about:





And if McCain wins the 2008 election:

great pics! :) out of the cities you've listed i've only been to denver. i really liked it, felt similar to houston--except minus the mountains and snow. :)

i think vancouver's an excellent idea--regardless of who wins the election.

I've always been rooted to the place where I was born so I admire you're adventurous spirit.

Vancouver...that is where I want to be regardless of the election.

Ooooh! Fantastic choices! You've got a half-dozen of my favorite cities there, that'd be a tough choice. Although, Monterey is perhaps the most beautiful place I've ever visited, year-round, no nasty cold, no nasty hot...I'd definitely vote Monterey.

I've never really looked into these locations too much, but Boston and Vancouver seem to appeal to me.

Also, Janette liked DC when she was living there...of course, knowing her, you might take that as a reason NOT to want to live there.

you know my vote-denver. But that's just so I could come hang out. I actually don't like denver at all. I would choose Boston myself-so much history. i guess that doesn't really help my cause to get you back in colorado. oh, well (sigh)

Those are all great cities. Of course, I'm partial to Boston. But am wondering why Austin wasn't on your list, eh? Much more affordable than any of the others you mentioned. And I can fatten you up on TexMex. AND...I could lend you my REAL fish-eye lense. Tempted yet?

Christchurch, New Zealand! :) Just kidding. I personally loved D.C.
