Just Life

I haven't blogged for a while, so I just thought I would just say a few words of what's been happening to me lately. It's nothing exciting to hear, but I thought it's time to blog! Last night I went to the studio at UVSC to have pictures taken of me. My friend, Mollie has a photography class that she has to take pictures of someone. So she picked ME! I felt so loved and important. I really did need to feel important at that time. I felt like a model! I will post some pictures when she gives them to me! I hope they turned out! It was quite a treat. That is about all for now!

My New Room!

My roomies!

These are just a few of my roommates! We decided to have a girl's night in watching a chick flick! We watched Charley! I haven't seen that show in a very long time, but, of course, I fell asleep half way through it and then just saw a little bit of the end. I love my roommates. I could not ask for better roommates than these. We have had some fun times together. It's kind of hard to do something with everyone since there are 7 of us! We at least had 4 of us there, right? This was also the night we decided to go to sonic for a shake! We all went like this with our new UVSC shirts that we got for free! Well... that's it for now!

Service Committee

Friday night I went with my roommate to a leadership BBQ for institute which also had some fun activities! I had such a blast. I didn't know it was for the committee members who have signed up to be on all these different committees that are part of institute. I never knew there were so many different types of committees that you could be on. I am so glad my roommate, Stephanie reminded me about it.

I decided to join the service committee. I am so excited to be part of a group that can make me feel like I have accomplished something so worth-while. Doing service for others is something that I do to help relieve stress. It helps me to not thing about myself for a while and help others out who are more in need than me. OR help beautify the community in ways that make others happy beside myself. I can't wait to hear what the first project will be!


I haven't blogged for a while so I thought I should put an update on myself. I am taking this amazing class! I don't think I have ever taken a class where I wanted to learn; maybe because I know that I can do something MORE with it. PHOTOGRAPHY! I could not believe how much work you have to put into a picture. I am so glad I am taking this class so I can "Pretend" I am a professional.

This is the EXACT camera I am using for my class. Pretty old school ey? But I love it! It's the only way to go! My parents are letting me borrow it from them. Hopefully one day I will be able to afford my own camera so I can take even more cool pictures. Check out all the gadgets on this camera! It doesn't look like it from this view, but let me tell ya! There is a lot to this camera that I had no idea. Every little part counts to produce a great picture. You have to have the shutter speed, certain amount of light into each picture and focus to make the picture like great!

Our first project that we will be doing has to do with one object that is bigger than a can of soup and smaller than the size of a poster board. I haven't decided on what to shoot for my object. So if any of you have any ideas just let me know with a comment! I will need to know before next Thursday (13th). I can't wait to do it! ... hopefully it will make more sense when I am more into it. Wish me good luck!
