I'm at home sick...and have been since yesterday morning. And I start classes tomorrow...not how I wanted to be spending my last weekend before school started. It hasn't even been fun sick where I can just relax and enjoy my days doing nothing. It's been body aching, nose blowing, sore throat, stomach cramping. I've actually gone through about 2/3 of a box of Kleenex since yesterday...where does it all come from? Gross, I know...

I shot my first wedding! And I must say it actually went pretty well. At the time it didn't really seem like it. The batteries died in the flash I was using, the flash was rented and I had never shot with a flash, so I didn't really know what I was doing - ended up with some underexposed shots and overexposed. RAW saved my life! It was also hard b/c the whole wedding was indoors, plus they dimmed the lights, so I was shooting in really low lighting. Check out my pictures here:

On another note, I found an internship for my psych major. I will be working with Stand up for Kids. ( They work with homeless kids/youth. I don't know what I will be doing exactly, yet, because they're actually developing an internship for me. I have my 'basic orientation' this coming Wednesday; 'basic training' on Saturday; and 'street outreach training' at the end of the month. It will be interesting, if nothing else. I think I will actually enjoy it though.

That's about it for now! I'm appling to DU to get an MSW, but I probably won't be able to go in the fall b/c it's super expensive! So I might end up going to Front Range Comm College to et certified in sign language to be an interpreter. Since I'm officially a Colorado resident now, and that's a community college, it would be very cheap for me to go there! And I would be done with that program (2 year program) by the time Andrew finally finishes his music degree...he still has...who knows how long left!'s not really that bad, but he does have 2 1/2 years left! Yuck!

I can tell I'm feeling a little better by being up to even writing anything on here. I think I will go work on editing my wedding pictures. Have a good begining to your year/semester!

...By the way, the only goal I made this New Years was to not procrastinate as much in school...we'll see ho it goes. :)
