Sometimes my friend and I will try to find the worst outfits and document it with our cell phones. This was my worst outfit. Sadly some of the outfits looked redeemably cute, but that's life.

Today I went to Downtown Riverside to celebrate my Dad's birthday.
First, we went to Logan's for lunch. The family plus my boyfriend. It was actually really nice that he was included. Then we traveled to the Star Trek Exhibition. Afterward we wandered around main street and had a little fun. Then we went home where I made dinner for everyone followed by some ice cream cake. yum.
Remodeling Target... guess they remodeled the carts too. And my car realllllllly needs a wash.
Spent the day working hard. I went to work, went to class, ran some errands, cleaned, did laundry, and generally just worked my little butt off.

I just started taking another photo class. I spent the day taking photos from a pinhole camera that I made myself. It was actually really cool because I was in 100% percent of the process.
I made the camera.
I mixed the chemicals.
I cut the paper that I used to make the "negative."
I took the picture, by lifting up a piece of tape to uncover the pinhole and I acted as the shutter by keeping time.
I printed and processed the negative.
I dried the negative.
And I made the final picture.

I took this photo on the 16th and edited it on the 17th so that I could frame it an put it on the wall.
I just love flowers in the winter. There were two orange roses in the garden, so I got out my camera a took some pictures. There is something simple and honest about a rose. It doesn't pretend to be anything that it isn't.
I wanted to pull out my hair when I was editing this because my printer kept turning the image red. Which means I have to send it out to be printed. It also meant that I tried to manipulate the color more before I printed it, so it took more time than needed.

It might be winter, but don't forget to take some time to appreciate the things around you.
This is a little statue called "surrounded by love." I got it for my mother for Christmas to remind her that we all love her. It came at a good time too.

Rule one: have fun!!
Rule two: don't beat your self up if you forget a day.. just keep on moving.
Rule three: can either take a photo that day, or edit it that day.
Rule four: if taking one photo a day becomes impossible, you can switch to a project 52 (one photo a week).
Those are my rules, I hope that I make it through this year without too many bumps.
