That Magical Diploma

That Magical Diploma

After spending countless hours consuming gallons of coffee and having at least one anxiety attack a week for 3 years, I finally graduated with my bachelor’s degree, with honors even. Now, in my mind, graduating with such top grades and honors, I thought surely I would snag that magical decent-paying writer’s job. Potential employers would…

Anticipation

Lately, my life has been undergoing some very drastic changes. We’re moving across the country for my husband’s job. I need to find a job in a new city with my new career. We need to fix up the house and sell it; all in a span of a month! Add me trying to finish…

RAW vs. JPG

RAW vs. JPG

Like many things in digital photography, there are lots of opinions and discussions about image file formats, namely RAW and JPG. For some, it’s a matter of understanding what the formats are and what they can or cannot do, but for others, it’s choosing which format is the best to use. Let’s start with a…

The Best Camera Is the One You Have with You

The Best Camera Is the One You Have with You

What do you carry with you daily? I don’t know who the first person to coin the phrase was, but it is one that I’ve seen and heard a lot since I started with photography; the best camera is the one you have with you. And to be honest, it’s a very accurate statement. It…

Down Memory Lane

Down Memory Lane

After a little over 17 years away, I recently made a trip back to the city I grew up in. The trip was primarily to attend my niece’s wedding and (finally) catch up with family, who I had not seen (other than online and in photos) for those 17 years. It was a journey filled…

Tiny by Design Part 3

So many decisions to make and so much information to digest. That’s how my husband and I felt as we continued our research project into going tiny. As with any traditional home, you’re going to need to put something on that skeleton (framework) of your home. And as with traditional homes, tiny houses tend to…

The Human Eye Vs. The Camera

The Human Eye Vs. The Camera

One of my biggest frustrations with photography is the simple fact that the camera cannot match the human eye in what it can see and capture. Even the most advanced modern camera is incapable of recording images that accurately match what you can see with your own two eyes. Pretty much every camera manufacturer seems…

Don’t Fear Change

Don’t Fear Change

Change. It’s a simple word, yet invokes such a wide range of responses from people. From fear, hate, love, embrace, accept; feelings run a wide gamut and are very personal. Also, personal circumstances can cause an effect on your perception of change, often to magnify your feelings. Personally, I’ve been all over the place as…

Tiny by Design

Decisions to make when choosing tiny living. So, what is all the fuss about tiny houses? Just what does the Tiny House Movement mean? The true origins aren’t entirely known, but many point directly to Sarah Susanka’s book “The Not So Big House” as at least one catalyst of the current movement. A tiny home…

Burnout – The 21st Century Malady

Burnout – The 21st Century Malady

As I am plowing through one course after another, my momentum slows. However, I cannot sit on my laurels. I have zero energy to keep the fast pace that I have over the past year. Is this senior-itis? Or something else? For me personally, there are multiple factors to my situation. I work full time…
