My friends: Thank you for your support. I don't know how I would have gotten through September without you all. Through your contributions and purchases, I was able to get to and from class, afford parking and school supplies, and keep up with my goals. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I really needed to just word vomit how badly I felt and you guys really made me feel as though I could be comfortable just letting it out without worrying that I'd be judged or condemned for it. Thank you.
And just when things were going awesomely in the upper direction, my car breaks down. You know-- that thing that gets me to and from school and work and everything? I'm doing everything I can to get Caca Fuego back onto the pavement, but that's on hold until my school decides to issue the rebate check they owe me for the textbooks I needed a month ago. (Awesome work, Towson U!) Yay, yay, yay! Car's gonna cost me about 1600 dollars just to get things moving. In the meantime, my friends have been little messenger angels, distributing me in various parts of the state as necessary. I owe some serious brownies.
The Bar Mitzvah I shot was an absolute blast. The family was very kind, and it was the first time I think I've had genuine fun while working. I'd definitely do that again. In other photography news, it seems that all of a sudden I'm forming neat little photographer ties and now have two more weddings to shoot from now til May, and have a couple other contacts to get in touch with.
And in other news, my family accepted an offer on my Grandmother's house. The settlement is October 24th. Heartbroken is an understatement.
Aaaaaand I'm writing again, but who cares! A lot of my focus has been occupied by Samhain ritual planning. Seriously overextending myself here on the one high rite a year planning thing. At least there will be pumpkins.
Apparently Pluto switched houses tonight? I'm a mess and I'm rambling.
While I'm rambling I better mention that my cousin got hitched this weekend, and it was beautiful. I had to keep reminding myself I wasn't working though, and to dance more and take photos less. Regardless, the new groom family addition fella seems really nice. They're probably almost as geeky as I am. They had Halo figurines on their wedding cake.
Did I mention it was an Oktoberfest wedding? Provst!
