Photography Class

I am taking a photography class at school this semester, and I am really loving it! It is the only class I look forward to because of how fun the assignments are. We have a small studio with lights and a backdrop. We are able to do creative photoshoots and edit the photos. I love figuring out the lighting and poses. These pics are better than anything I have ever taken. This class has really changed my whole view on photography. It is no longer just pressing a button; it is manipulating lighting and focus to capture something beautiful.

Here are some of the photos I have edited and am now obsessed with! (There were more, but I couldn't share the ones with faces)

Do You Need a Laugh?

Prank videos have been the death of my time lately. I wasted all of Sunday just watching video after video. They are seriously so addicting and hilarious. Unfortunately for you, I am going to share what I think are the best of the best. I am sorry if this results in a wasted day or two!

Just watch this whole channel basically: Chaizy Channel

These were all just samplings of what I watched a couple days ago, but don't worry, the related video side bar will surely suck you in!

Barbie Photoshoot

I recently had some fun at a party playing with Barbie's with my little friend. I was surprised at how much fun I was having, so I wanted to share some photos with you!

80's Throwback

Lately I've been loving listening to 80's throwback songs, and I came across this awesome playlist that is composed of songs specifically from 1987. Who knew one year could produce all these great songs? I hope you enjoy and find a new favorite (or old favorite) song!

This playlist is from http://www.buzzfeed.com/perpetua/44-reasons-why-1987-was-an-amazing-year-for-music

To Do's

So I am just going to share a list of To Do's I have just in case there is anything that you might like to add to your list!

1. Cook up a sweet treat (preferably a recipe for some amazing looking cinnamon roll sugar cookies I saw in a magazine. . . I didn't take a pic of them because I was worried about copy right or something)

2. Make Barbie doll clothes with my sewing machine

3. Do some little organizing touches with my room using a command hook for my headbands and some little containers from the dollar store.

4. Plan a super fun winter formal night with my girlies (We're thinking fast food restaurant when we're all dolled up and bring balloons and confetti!)

5. Study super hard for this big test because the prize for best average score of a group is cake! I feel pretty confident in my group.

6. Keep practicing my dances

7. Paint my nails!!!

I hope this gives you some ideas for your week, month, or maybe even year. Just remember, starting with the small stuff will help make life so much easier!

Overload of Information

I have recently been pondering the internet, what it holds, where it is, and if anyone really understands it. Just think about it. There are probably millions of pictures, posts, and articles uploaded to the internet everyday. Where does it all go? Is there a way to lose the internet. How would we get it back? What is reaching it? What if when our whole civilization is depleted, and a new civilization inhabits the earth, they somehow find our internet. What will they think about it? I just can't wrap my head around questions like these. It's all too complicated. Does anyone else wonder about things like this?
