Sometimes I get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.

This past week I was told to make a web page for one of my assignments. I decided to make it my collection of photography pictures that I love. Like I put a few pictures of the ocean, because I am obsessed with surfing and the ocean. There were a few pics of lightening, orcas, scuba diving, and sunsets. I plan to add to the site as I find new pictures.

Taking a photograph can say alot about any subject. You know the saying "a picture says a thousand words".....well that is really true. I mean what happens when you snap a picture of a sunset or lightening and you post it to the world. You can say so many things with just that picture. You can say, "Isnt this amazing!" Or you can say, "This it so scary, but so cool."

Let your pictures tell a story and in time you will have the story of your life!

Ok, so it is my second week of college and I really actually am starting to enjoy it. I am so happy I stayed in the dorm because I really wouldnt have any friends if I was off campus. My life would consist of driving back and forth between college and home.

I like being in college. It gives me a freedom I never even knew I would get now! Everyone treats me like an adult and I didnt think that would happen until I was out of college. Dont get me wrong this new found freedom/adulthood is great......just.....I now have a lot of things on my head that I thought I wouldnt have to deal with until later. Like, finances. My mom and dad help me a little but if I want any extra money I have to go get it myself or I better have a really good reason why I need it. Also, I am responsible for every single bit of my time. I was before in charge of it, but I had rules on when I could do things and when I couldnt. Now.....I have no rules. None....nada.....zilch. There are only rules on when I need to be in the dorm and how early I can leave in the morning. The other rules that the dorm has are rules that are common sense to me and the rules I already have in place.

Dorm life is different, but I like it alot and I am glad I got to experience it!!!

English Assignment

Ok, so I have to do this blog for college. I really don't mind the assignment....its better than writing a 20 page essay! it goes!

I go to Southern Adventist University. Coming here was a big shock for me....I was used to a small boarding school where I knew everyone and I knew about all the ins and outs of going to that school. Here at a bigger school with more people and alot more faculty and a much bigger campus, I feel like I get swallowed in the every day tasks and that I dont have a big effect on being at this school. Yeah, I may meet 10 new people every day, but nothing ever grows from that first meeting and I always tend to resort back to the friends that I knew from high school. Don't get me wrong I love them to pieces, but I want to meet and gain some new friends. You ever just get tired of the same people over and over. You love them but you just want something else to happen in your life. Right now....that's how I feel. And I somewhat feel bad for my friends that I feel this way toward them.....but then again they have been in college for a month now and have new friends.....I have only been in college for 2 weeks and dont have that many new friends. I guess new friends will come with time!!!! :)
