I found out Dana had her baby...So I'm a cousin again. :)

Her name is Addison and she was born on her aunt Marcia's birthday, Feb 3. I haven't heard anything about Ethan's reaction yet. Ethan is Addison's big brother...he's 4, I think. I wish I lived closer to see the wittle baby! ;)

My background check has officially been cleared, so I'm starting street outreach for Stand Up For Kids next Monday! This is where I'm doing my internship for school. I'm really excited. I'll be going out every Monday night to find homeless kids...hang out with them, give them food, resources for free medical care, counseling of sorts, etc. I'm excited to get out there, but still a little nervous! I think I won't be nervous after my first time.

I'm having some problems with motivation concerning school. Since I'll be done in May, my mind is definitely focused on things other than stupid homework assignments. I would much rather be spending time on my photography, SU4K (Stand up for kids), looking into grad schools and jobs, and all that fun stuff! By the way, I'm trying to officially start up my photography as a payed business. I'm excited, but it means I'll be buying new camera equipment...which is super expensive. I've been staring at what I want to buy for the last couple weeks, unable to actually purchase it yet. Not b/c I don't have the money, but b/c of the queasy feelings I get thinking about no longer having the money..ha.

Well, I'm off to get ready for the day.
