Or continues. It really depends on how you look at it I suppose. You know, whether or not you are “glass half full” or “glass half empty” kind of person. Right now, I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t ready to just toss the glass against the wall. It has been one of those weeks and Buddy’s expression is as close as I can get to an appropriate description.
I feel like it is just par for the course of 2018. Over the weekend my laptop popped a hinge, which apparently causes the whole monitor to come apart. I take it to Best Buy to find out that the person behind the counter use to live in the same apartments and that they are not only raising our rent by $100 but that they are also forcing us to move into renovated apartments (which are a couple of hundred more) or to move all together. I don’t give much to hearsay, so I went and asked….short of it all…I will be moving in a month or so.
I am stressed about the increase in rent, but I think that it will be a good thing. I don’t know why. I’m not changing complexes, just apartments but I’m excited in a sense of being able to get kind of a fresh start. This current apartment…well, maintenance has been in it more than I have been. And in a strange turn of events, my old laptop decided to start turning on and working again. It doesn’t work acceptably, but it is working pretty tolerably so I’ll take it.
As for my photography. I am preparing for my art shows. I am trying to swallow my pride and I started a gofundme page. I won’t share it here today. I’m still uneasy about it. I shouldn’t be, but I am. I want my first couple of art shows to be outstanding and really put me out there. So here’s to fingers crossed that it all works out the way that it is supposed to.
I’ve also purchased a new ND filter. Higher F stop reduction than the older one (and it is not all scratched up). What does that mean? Well, hopefully it means that I will be able to work on and bring in some acceptable long exposure shots. I’m excited about that.
For now, I have brought you colored photos from Buddy’s shoot. I am still proud of them. I printed one of Gordy’s and it looks amazing. I’m hoping to get some more this weekend, but it has been rainy so we’ll have to wait and see. Until then, I hope that you enjoy these.
Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
