So after some thought I decided that I’m going to make this a personal as well as photography blog instead of just my writing blog. I took down most of my old posts and re-did my about me page just so y’all know.
Anyhow, I’m excited to see how this goes. No doubt it’ll be an epic fail, but I’m going to give it a try! Lately life around here has been a blur of ups and downs.
- My dad’s mum was admitted to the hospital after she took a bad fall. She’s doing quite well now, but gave us quite a scare.
- Mum’s mum is coming down from Nova Scotia for THREE whole weeks in March. We’re all on top of the world about that. We haven’t seen her in four years, so it’ll be awesome to spend time with her again. (Yes, my mum is Canadian. She moved down to the states when she married my dad. I’m actually both a Canadian and US citizen which is kind of awesome)
- Farm season at my house is underway! Once the ground thaws we’ll be busy putting in fencing and a huge greenhouse. Right now we’ve been fixing our barn up for the coming season.
- I’m making progress on Echo. It’s taking forever, but I think I *finally* have a good idea with where I’m taking it.
- We discovered that I’m allergic to gluten. Which kind of cleared up the major health issues that have been going on with me for the past six months.
- I got my 50mm lens last month. I know, I know, it’s a little thing to freak out over….BUT I’ve been having a blast playing around with it.
- I’m…..um….almost a year away from graduation. That scares me sometimes, but it’s so exciting too.
- Our town is covered in a blanket of snow at the minute. I’m dying for spring, but I won’t deny the snow is really pretty.
And now I shall leave you with something I wrote earlier this week:
But this is what happens when you lose someone; the numb feeling is gradually replaced by a bitter sense of longing and sadness. You eventually realize that they aren’t coming back and you couldn’t have changed fate anyhow. And after everything has fallen apart, there is nothing left to do except to keep on living as if they weren’t ripped away from you faster than a summer rainfall.
What’s new with you?
