Taking Pictures to the Moon

The sky has too many limits.

Blogging really hasn’t been my forte lately.

I have a difficult time knowing what to talk about, what the focus of said blog is, the audience I am targeting, how much I want to get out.

It doesn’t help that I don’t have Internet access at home, save for when a neighbor’s unsecured wifi signal creeps through my window.

I could make that all inclusive blog that can only be organized by scores of tags and filters because there are so many varying factors in my life. (And doesn’t that make me sound oh so important?) But in trying to please everybody by giving a taste of something everyone will enjoy, everyone will get bored with the posts not relevant to their interests and no one will read it.

So here’s a general rundown of what I’ll try to stick to:

Photos. Because photography consumes my life, whether it be taking pictures, editing pictures or admiring pictures.

Craziness. My mental health is of constant scrutiny. And sometimes the situations I find myself in are pure hilarity.

Cats. Who doesn’t love cats?

Detroit. I love Detroit. I love Michigan. I hate snow.

Current and historical events. I love learning about what’s happening now and comparing it to what has happened in the past. We are always doomed to repeat ourselves.

Music. If I come up with some songs or videos I feel are worth sharing, then… I will share them.

I’m hoping that I can categorize my posts well enough to prevent this from becoming a “today I woke up and then I got dressed and then I ate some toast and then I went to the mall and then I bought some shit and then I came home the end” kind of blog. I’m not so concerned, as I love punctuation.

In the meantime, I’m stuck inside for the majority of the day because my little brother is on his second snow day in a row, so I get to babysit. Hot chocolate, electric blankets, two layers of socks and cats. Cats everywhere!

Bis bald!

I can’t lie; I’m having a hard time remembering to post new things.

It isn’t as if I don’t have anything to update with. I have a plethora of pictures, ideas, life experiences, experiments and general run of the mill BS.

The problem is choosing what to put up.

We all have voices, it’s just a matter of how we choose to use them.

No camera just means more time on my hands

My camera is still kaputt. I haven’t heard anything about how reliable Teleplan is for repairing cameras and if I were to spend $400 to repair a camera that is six years old, I may as well put that money (that I don’t have)  toward a new camera.

So for the time being, I’m reduced to camera phone pictures. Sad, but true.

Not having a DSLR at my disposal has really thrown me off.  But a few months of pouting hasn’t accomplished anything so I am back to working on projects for my Etsy store. My goal is to add new products on a regular basis and find new ways of marketing my merchandise. I’ve posted my Sunflower Girl 8×10 print on craigslist with the hope that it will generate interest not necessarily for that particular print, but for my store and products in general. Any ideas and suggestions are warmly welcomed. This is something I’m striving to be successful with.

I watched the world go round and round, and see mine turning upside down

I’ve been listening to a lot of Phil Collins lately.
