Then people stopped walking close enough to me, lol,

and i didnt forget everything from last year either, luckily, xD

Thursday, January 29, 2009






Maybe I'm just in a black and white frenzyyy today
but i love it xD two siblings down, two more to go
I cant decide with the last two which version i like better

And you have no idea how long it took me to get her hair done xD I've never curled anyones hair before (not even my own) so it was interesting :P
i think she had fun though.

God's Honor



He looks really good in black and white...

Project 365; Day 29



Appearances are a glimpse of the unseen.

Today I was thinking how I don't take many pictures of my brother Timmy so here he is xD I made him change his shirt and comb his hair. It took him about 20 minutes to get it the way he wanted, then i messed it up again, lol!

“Passion is a sort of fever in the mind, which ever leaves us weaker than it found us.”
- William Penn

Project 365; Day 20


Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way.

-Pamela Dugdale

I took a bunch of these but the lighting idea was bad, lol. It was really really bright. Most of the good ones ended up with his face too washed out. And then after i took these he decided he was sick xD And now he has a fever, lol.
So I have to wait until his fever is gone before I try again, xD

Project 365; Day 19



“With each sunrise, we start anew”

I got up this morning and since my window has an almost perfect view of the sun rising I couldn't help but notice how beautiful it looked through the icicles. :] I'm not dedicated enough to go out in the snow in the morning xD Plus the icicles are too high so I obviously took these through my window :P but I still like them.

Project 365; Day 18


We do not remember days; we remember moments.

Project 365; Day 17

I don't like this. It sucks. Im aware.
But I have to post something
Or else i'll just fail for the rest of my life
And that shiny little piggy bank has been calling to me ever since my brother got it
I am having some difficulty with vista photo viewing stuff D:
I cant view photos in a slideshow so i cant see the ones i wanted to use
and when i use the photo viewer, theres something weird with the colors. its so annoying
and then gimp is like all one big box and its annoying
aaaaaaand theres only a handful of fonts

other than that picture trouble vista is great.
too bad pictures are like a huge deal to me
and i get frustrated easily.

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

im baaack

my computer is all fixed :]
and now i have vista
which is kinda neat so far

bad news is im almost a week behind in project 365 D:
i guess i'll just post two pictures a day until i'm caught up or something
but no picture today

because im a slacker.

where i've been

i know its only been two days but it feels like longer o_o
and no, i don't have a picture for today
but here's the thing,
i got some giant mutant computer virus.
and it almost ate me alive
i barely escaped with my life.
but anyways, my computer is not usable yet and will not be until tomorrow (hopefully).
all my pictures are going to be safely transferred onto some kind of memory storage device and everything's gonna be hunky dory after my dad blows up my computer
so I'll post three days worth then
i just thought i would let you know,
since some people actually look at this blog :]

Project 365; Day 13

playin' on my blog name
its a stupid name xD
i know
but i came up with it like two years ago
and can't come up with anything better.

i am not really feeling creative today. I attempted and I failed, and my computer is being stupid xD So now I just don't want to deal with anything. lol. its frustratingggggg

taking pictures of text in books and calling it a photograph = cheating

maybe tomorrow i can come up with something better.
tomorrow at least exams will be officially OVER and I can stop stressing out

Project 365; Day 9

"Creativity has got to start with humanity"

yeah i pretty much picked the first good Marilyn Monroe quote i came across and cut the end off because it didnt fit xD
I'm not 100% happy with these,
1. Theres too much going on, i knooow: the can, the poster, my awkward hand position, and too many colors
2. half of her face is covered up
3. my hand position just bugs me really badly xD
but yeah i was short on time and just played around for a couple seconds 'cause we had company over.
interpret it how you want, i was just like "hey pepsi can, hey monroe poster. heyyy picture." lol
Not the best but at least I haven't missed a day yet ;] i gotta work on my last minute rush problem xD
