i am really loving this wedding stuff. I mean it's not fine art but it's exciting and fun and I'm working with some really awesome people. I got a flash and a new lens with great aperture, which makes taking pictures so much more fun now. kelly helped me out with letting me borrow some of her lenses! THANKS AGAIN KELLY!!!!!! it totally helped. I will add some pics later from today's wedding, from last week's I got two on facebook that are the best of the few I took on my card and two out of the 5 that were in RAW. which is like a godsend to shoot in. the ones from last week (the good ones) are on flickr. I'll add a fee more.

I got early to "work" today and they were thrilled. apparently they don't like the other assistant as much. the complaints so far:
is always "running late.
no motivation
cares only about the money
back talks
WAAAAAY too friendly with guests at the weddings

well for the first reason and dor the fact that I got early (which they LOOOOVE) they are paying me extra.
so tomorrow I am going to meet her durin gour workshop to bring us up to speed. honestly I am even more convinced ima kick her butt! i'm looking forward to meeting her....lol anyways
with all these weddings they need my help editing pics....well......my DUMB A** comp is totally DEAD...... almost. so... i need to take pics off of it and COMPLETELY REBOOT IT!!!

all i've got to say about that is AAAAAAGHAGHGHGHGHJDfkluvgilsutliubtvk; dgyawy4;fy8.o y8nhj!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ngnnmm,h hjb

funny thing is ima be one of two assisatants. so they figured out the girl isn't very great in photo and so they are having a paid training sesion thing to see how much we know and what we need to learn. IMA TOTALLY KICK HER BUTT! lol. jk but i am totally excited and it'll be fun. theya re a young couple very fun and energetic and we'll have a good time. I am just so glad ima be doingphotography finally as a job. I've been waiting for this for a while and finally ima get my foot in the door. they are very supportive and will have my bio link etc and pics from the weddings i am a second shooter. it'll be fun! i can't wait. so i am happy and this summer will be amazing.

I am gonna go insane!!!! omg!!!!!!!!!!

I have one mroe week and then a day or so of finals and I swear i have never seen so much work in my life. to prove it:

go for critique for photo installation(my day to present)

final forworld lit
turn in WSt final

and i'm done!!!

but all those papers aren't 3-5 pages they are 5-7 pages minimum....ummmmm really?! CRAP!!!! ithat's a lot of work. especiallt since I haven't read that many works in world lit to actually know what ima write about... and especially since Women's studies sucks....and especially since there's not that much info i can find on richard avedon and his fashion photography.... hmmmm so basically i have put myself in a corner that i cannot get out!!!! or it would be really hard to. my paper for WSt is crappy already and i have even started on it...she wanted me to narrow it down so much that i cannot find enough info on it. and i really need a decent grade in that class (like a B) in order not to lose hope. i will atleast get B's in the other classes, this one is the only one i'm worried about.so... let's go have some fun kiddies!

PEACE!! ima go away and freak out and cry for a bit. i've already cried twice this week. It's major stress i DO NOT know how to handle!
