I’m sick today…
Sort of. I made a mistake with my medication today and tasks like driving, or carrying heavy trays or spending any substantial time in a kitchen seemed scary.
It has been hours and I’m still actually pretty shaky and exhausted. But the kind of exhausted where you can’t sleep.
But there is good news (by the way, I just tried to spell news “Noose” and it took me a second to realize….wow…I really am sick)! So, good news…I think I figured out what I want to do with the rest of my life.
To be honest, I’m not really sure why it took me so long to realize it.
- This is something I have ALWAYS loved doing.
- It is something that I can do from anywhere.
- I will be able to work from home most of the time.
- I can do this while traveling.
- Once I have children, I will be able to spend plenty of time at home raising them.
- It is a profession that will always be needed, and by the way I choose to set my prices, I can get more work.
I want to be a photographer.
I LOVE taking photos and always have. This realization that it would be a great job for me sort of dawned on me slowly, and I think I have my upcoming wedding to thank for this.
While compiling lists of things to do when we go to Pennsylvania to plan the wedding (in like ten days) we started looking at photographers.
Holy cow are they expensive!
Too expensive and many of whom are not really that incredible. I have always been a bit of a photography snob…but I have seen high school students take better photos then some of the people out there doing this professionally.
So, I am going back to school this fall.
I am going to register to take classes at LACC. It is just down the street from my apartment and they have a good photography program. I am going to apply tomorrow and get my financial aid paperwork straightened out so I can start in August.
I am so excited about this choice. It has been a long time coming. And it is such an obvious choice.
When I was in high school, I placed in a state photo contest a few years in a row, and I have taken over 1000 photos on my phone since November. I take pictures everywhere I go.
This is how I see the world. Why not make this hobby my new career?
These are all just a few photos that I have taken with my cell phone.
Imagine what I can do with a good camera and an education.
Now…back to the couch and the camomile tea I just made. Meh.
