Holiday Break - gotta stay focused

BJD-Photostory-Leeloo-2010-12-06-On and On - 21

I sit here with the first headache I've had in months and I'm overwhelmed by the amount of things I want to get done over the break.

I'm not sure if I'm more overwhelmed by the amount of tasks to be done, or my lack of physical motivation to do them. I know I will feel better if I do them, but taking that first step is so hard for me lately.

Things to accomplish:
  • Clean my Apartment and re-organize
  • buy new shoes as all of mine decided to be un-wearable at the same time
  • Paint Alpha (Minifee Scar Shiwoo)'s faceup - I'm thinking glitter.... mmm
  • Paint Pudding (Chris's cute Panda thing)
  • Blush Gaius (Minifee El)'s Body
  • Redo Leeloo (Minifee Shushu)'s Facup and body blushing
  • Paint Caprica (Minifee Lishe)'s heads (if his heads have creamed enough)
  • Get my Druid and Priest up to 85
  • Get iPhoto totally organized and Flickr up to date
  • Clean out extra space on laptop HDD

We'll see how much I've forgotten to put on my list and how much I'll get done.

New Camera and Holiday BJD Meet!

so... I was going to move but a lot of factors all at once piled up and made me decide not to move quite yet. I think I suddenly had a slightly irrational urge to so I could completely get away from a part of my past.

I decided to get a camera instead and it has been amazing. I also re-organized my Apartment into a much more useful and open layout. Waffles has a space now too so he can get off his station =)

I ended up getting a Canon 60D with a Canon 50mm prime 1.8 lens (plus a bag, memory cards, UV filter...) and man is it amazing! I have a lot of learning to do on it... but I think I did pretty good today at the Federal Way holiday doll meet. Especially for not having played with a DSLR properly in years. All these images have zero post editing done to them. The full album can be found here, but I also picked out a few of my favorites to share below.

These pictures are from a Ball Jointed Doll meet-up we had today in Federal Way. This was one of the funnest meets I've been to in a while. I like that everyone really mingled and we ended up in a big pow wow circle again like at the Halloween meet. I also found out a lot of people read my photostories that I didn't realize. Hehehe - makes me even more determined to up my photo skills!

* A chapter over - Time to start a new *

Well I've finally gotten resolution to almost 10 years of pain sprinkled with happiness. Many different factors have brought this to a fruition.

I'm not going to stand by to be picked up to only the thrown to the wayside again. I honestly feel sorry for my predecessor, the other thrown away flower that is feeble enough to not stand on their own and refuse to be abused more. I stand for more than that. I'm worth more than that.

I might not be everyone's ideal and may not waver and bend to others wants when they clash with my own opinions but everyone has a right to the way they feel. Compromise is right in the correct situation. What one wants out of life is not one of them.
BJD-Photostory-2010-11-30-however they may - 15
I'm done.
I'm just so done with it all.

I've got to purge this negativity.
Positive thoughts bring positive results

Once again I'm strengthened and believe in me.
Hold my hands and hug me friends. I'll need it.

I'll find you love - I just know it.

Thanksgiving Dollie fun photos

Here are some of the pictures I took over the Thanksgiving holiday. Not too bad for a few lamps, paper, and a partially borked 5 year old Canon pocket camera, ne? Only cropping done on some photos- no other editing.
