I like that title.Holy Shoes!
Ever since my second-to-last move between states, I hadn't been working out as much as I should have. A few months ago I picked up tennis (wahah...so random ne?) and had my dad teach me most of the basics. Who do I play with? The wall (which really is quite a nice partner, if you think about it - doesn't complain, you can visit anytime and don't have to worry about commitments, and it always hits back!).
Now comes the shoes part....
I'm not a fashion freak. And that goes for shoes too - I never have more than two pairs of shoes per year. Usually it's just a pair of tennis shoes that look brand new in the beginning of the year, and look worn, torn, and very sad-looking after the 365 days are up.
This last pair I've been wearing for almost a year and a half. And it showed, because I started getting blisters on my toes after tennis-with-wall. Last weekend I discovered that there was a gaping hole on the left shoe, and figured it was probably time to get some new ones.Dramas?
I've been telling myself over and over again that I'd finally try watching some...and I finally succeeded this past week. And I have to say it's definitely different from your typical movie at the theaters.
I've only been able to find romancey ones so far, and they're not as scary as I thought they'd be xp. Ones I've been watching: Hanazakari no Kimi Tachi e (For You In Full Bloom/Blossom), and Hana Yori Dango Season (Boys over Flowers) both seasons. If anyone has any other recommendations I'm all ears! I need something to enjoy for the rest of the summer.Portfolio Website
At last! After about a week-long binge (not much of my usual binges actually...I had to cram in work and the last bits of summer school into the mix), I finally finished my portfolio website. I haven't quite filled out all of my stuff for the portfolio yet...but for now I think it works out.Photography
Over the summer I took a Photography class - a media I hadn't really tried before. They used the professional cameras, where you have to figure stuff like aperture and shutter speed, and you use film and develop and print them in a dark room (very cool!). This was a completely different experience from using Photoshop - things like dodging and burning done by hand rather than using software. And there are also things you can do with a camera that you just can't do as easily on the computer.
Anyways, if anyone's interested in seeing some, click
