some of the most amazing people in my life have stepped out to help me do what i want to do since my disappointment last month. i've got all sorts of exciting things cooking--in a way, it was a huge catalyst for me to stop thinking and start doing.

and, since i took that photo class, i've learned how to take better advantage of the cheapy lens i already have. i wasn't able to get photos like this from it on demand before, and now the blur is working for me, not the other way around. i heart the blur.
