It's over [Friday, Dec. 17, 2004, 9:04 am]
When the day comes that I run my own household, the Christmas tree is going up during the first week of December. Because I can't stand this business of getting the tree only a week before Christmas, and then leaving it up until past New Year's. My mom always says, "Well it's such work to put it up that we might as well leave it up for a while." Okay, so why not just put it up earlier? *sigh*.
Anyway, I do have happier things to talk about. Last night was my last photography class. It was funny, and wonderful, and sad at the same time. I can't tell you how proud I am of my portfolio. Hours and hours of work and hundreds of $$ are contained in that lovely $50 box. And I think others in the class felt the same way. One girl was carrying her box around and said it was like her child or something. Yes, mine's my best friend at the moment too.
We all critiqued each other's photos and mats, and we got to arrange all our prints in the best way that we could, because when you do photography shows, organization is very important. I ended up with a 95 for my portfolio! I'm so happy!
I'm going to miss that group. I'll miss those long drives to Lewiston to put in long hours at the photo lab. I'll miss slaving away over trays of chemistry, trying to get the prints to turn out right. I'll miss complaining, along with the others, about how much money everything is costing us. I'll get to go through photography again next semester, but it will be with a different group of people. And I'll have to get used to it all over again. But such is life.
All the same, I'm glad most of my classes are over now. All I have left is one final, on Monday, so I have all weekend to study. What am I going to do with myself for the next month? Oh, I'm sure I'll find something to keep me occupied - that's never been too difficult for me.
PS: I found out that my photography professor actually went to college with Daniel Handler, also known as Lemony Snicket. Cool, huh?
