As I approached graduation back in May I began to realize there was a lot more to graduation than receiving a diploma. I was going to have to say goodbye to my professors, my friends, and all the activities/jobs that kept me busy (and sane) over the past four years. I saw this as the next big challenge I would be faced with. And boy was I right.


I went from having a couple hours of free time a week, to only being busy for a couple hours per week. I was going crazy.


So I started reading… a lot… Until that began to bore me, so I organized my closets, drawers, room, and anything else I could find that needed organizing. At this point of my summer I was still job searching, had read a ton, was very organized, and still bored.


I decided I would begin to learn to use my new Canon Rebel T3i.


I have taught myself all of the basic functions (I think!) my camera has, and have attempted to do a couple of creative things but I still want to learn more. I plan to treat myself to a photography class as soon as I land my first job! I am hoping that I will learn even more about photography, my camera, and Photoshop in whatever class I decide to take!


Stay tuned for updates on my latest hobby!
