Movin' & Groovin'

I have been working on a lot of photos since I got my camera and kinda dropped off blogging a twittering. haha I've done a few more model shoots and other client shoots since receiving my camera and also started a business with my best friend. You can see some of the shoots I have done and posted on my redbubble account or Facebook page. Slowly making payments on the camera as there was no way for me to get it this year if I made a full out purchase. I will have it payed for by January, really looking forward to that.

Summer has ended way too fast for me, but I made a few more friends and really been chilling with people more then I have since before college started. Starting to plan out fall and winter along with wondering what all will happen. Recently start going to The Pursuit church here in Boise. Extremely stoked to be there! You should come check it out! 8D Yep yep! haha

New camera

Since the last post I have received my camera and been using it more then I thought I would be and much more yo come. I got it right before my family trip so I could learn it in the almost two weeks vacation. That turned out great for getting use to it and what it does along with reading a very informative book for photography. At this point I have had multiple shoots this month and a few planned for next month. Rather thankful for that as it is paying for itself at the rate it's earning me money.

The starting

I have been looking around at getting my new camera, but haven't had much luck with it. I have been really thinking about getting a business started with this new camera and people have told me I should start my own for some time now. I have been talking to God about it and feel I have been putting this off and it's what I should be doing. I haven't been able to get this camera through other 'short' cuts, so I finally asked God to show me what needs to be done. I took another route and felt safe about it, I asked and prayed that if He wants me to move this direction that it will work out. Everything since asking for His leadership has gone smoothly and way too easy. Funny how things work out when we hand it over for Him to drive. So the first big step has been taken and the next step will be soon after and later I this month. I praise Him for that and will try my hardest to keep Him at the center of all this where I should keep Him.

So I have been really into taking and edit photos for the fun of it and also for people's/my portfolio. Well I decided to sell that camera to help fun a new one as it was high time I moved up with all I was doing and want to do. I sold it through ebay, but was cheated out on it from a fake paypal. I have submitted the info I have of the guy and hoping something can be done, but I am not expecting much. Now I have to really crack down and spend very little money from the next 1.5 months to hopefully have enough to buy it or pay most of it and then owe a few to my savings.

There are a few reasons I want this so fast. I am no longer taking photos for a regular shoot I normally do, I am loosing money from a few shoots I had lined up, and I just really want it. HAHA

I could probably get it fast then that, but if I take the long way around I can save $110. I think this is worth it as I can get some essential accessories with that amount. Two main ones that I almost/can't live without. So! With the patience I normally have with everything else, I will be trying my best to hold still and wait. When it come to new technology I want to get… I don't have much of that. XP

Pointless post

I find Sundays so boring. If it weren't for church that I look forward to every week I could really care less about it. I like fridays after work, saturdays… then just don't care. haha Its nice to have two days in a row off though!

Aaaaaanyyyyy ways… just chilling at home with my dad watching movies all day. One of the movies I haven't seen since I was 6 or something, definitely a flash back for sure. Working on photos while doing that too cause I need to get as many as I can possible before tomorrow…. which means… I am not doing it right now.. haha

I find it intersting that after over a week of trying to get good sleep I stay up late and feel great the next day.    A little exhuasted energy wise, but didn't feel sleepy. After that the last two days I am back to not sleeping good; I do get sleepy and fall asleep fast, but I am waking up consistantly through the night. Seems to be killing the deep sleep so it makes sense. I take melitonen for it sometimes, but I don't want to use it more then once a week as it doesn't work/so I have to always use it. Not really sure what to do now, but oh well. Heyyyyy maybe I will stay up really late a few times so I crash hard for a while! lol Prolly won't work that well....

Music composing

My music focus came to a large stop with most of this year just getting in the way. I have been focusing only on gym, design works, and family/friends. Also a problem with not being able to record in silence has been an issue. I normal recorded on Wednesdays, but I have filled that evening up with another thing that I really enjoy doing. So about every other week (if I remember) I record and have some fun with it. Now that I am taking ukulele lessons, it seems I can really keep up with how fast I originally wanted to move on this project. Once I finish up the uk lessons, depending on how I feel about playing, I will probably go back to voice lessons as my voice is still a mess. haha A lot better then before though. I do have a choice to go onto advanced lessons in the ukulele so I will have to make a well thought out decision when the time comes.

More info about the process. I was helped with making my first two songs music written after I had lyrics already down. I knew what I wanted, but couldn't get it. Hopefully the uk lessons will help with this, but until then I have a total of two songs ready for me to record. After that I have 3 finished and I just need to put music to it. I hope to have time to play more tonight before everyone gets home.

I'm taking a weekend trip to Utah for my sibs dance competition at Lagoon. I was almost going to drive so I could trip around where ever, but decided to ride instead. I still got to run to the gym while my family played cards and swam so that was cool. It was a great workout too. The Golds Gym location that I went to was totally different then the three we have in Boise. Getting ready to head out, later.

iPhone water damage and replacement

I was at the gym finishing up and getting ready to shower. Normally I leave my phone on top of my bag but it must have fell down into the bag. By the time I got out of the shower my water bottle had spilled almost all of the water in the bag. Didn't even notice till I was almost dressed. Haha my phone was acting weird by saying the device isn't supported but I figured it fell causing it to do that. The it kept doing it so I picked it up and the bottom was drenched. I dried it off as much I could but knew that more would need to be done. I put it in a bag of rice all night long and in the morning it worked fine for a good two hours till it kept resetting and wanting to be connected to iTunes.

I ran around town trying to get it repaired and almost bought a new one without contract. (I wouldn't have been in such a rush for a new phone if i wasn't leave to vegas) then an Att dude said to get my butt over to apple. I have no clue why I didn't go the first, dee duh dee! That should have been my first choice to go to. Anyways I went there to get an appointment with a genius. He asked to open it up and look at it to see how bad the damage was. Once he did we found out it was just the 30 pin connector on the bottom and would be cheap to replace. Cause of that he swapped out my phone for another one on the one year warranty it comes with.

I totally couldn't believe it! I figured I would end up paying $700 for a new phone or pay the difference in damage for another one. Once again, just another reason and good experience with another apple product.

I've been really getting into making food recently. Most just pizza right now cause its easy to make and reheats at the office very nicely. Originally I was just making it for lunch to save money, but now its growing on me as an every Sunday thing. Cook a meal on Sunday and use that for work the next three days.

I  have started sleeping really bad and waking up last minute just to get a touch more sleep. Only problem with this is that I end up skipping breakfast and then remember I have nothing at the office to eat. I feel like I am starving till lunch. haha I think I will  begin to make at least three days worth of breakfast along with the lunches I make. I figure three days are better then none.

You did not just send that...

This is a real conversation with my boss through texting, talking to him is the same way. I know it is mean, but the best part of conversations like these are when I get to prove him wrong the next second or even better, the next day when I come in. :) And now your feature presentation…

Where is power supply for flatfold samsung monitor in conf room?

Me:Last time I saw it it was plugged into the monitor in the conference room

Boss:Nope. Pls hook up xd300 in the am. Must be in boxes from phx first

Me:No it's there. I pulled the ivga from that tc to put on the website last week.

Boss:Must be invisible

So ya… I just wowed… I wanted to freak out on him right there, but the pleasure will be in the morning when I can point out the power supply. :] I know that might sound mean, but when he knows I am right in things like this why does he taunt me? He knows I have no dumb reason to lie to him about it.

I took a trip down to Phoenix for work to attend a Pastors conference. That city is the bomb! If it had an ocean it would totally be home for me. I took some video while down there and plan to edit it together and post it sometime soon… maybe. haha There were so many small things and big things that made it so great. The main thing was that its a large city; I love them and I want to live in one some day. Large buildings are great to look at when far away from them and while driving down roads between them. There is such a cool feeling. Another thing I liked is how they run roads next to the freeway so you don't have to get off an exit early and hit the side roads. You just get off at one of the many ramps along the way and do down the road till you come the the road you need. I had thought that that would be cool, but never seen it being used till last week.

The best part about being down there was getting a job interview. Ya… I was down there for a job and got a job interview. lol I went into the interview and the only thing they did was sit me down in front of a mac pro and a wacom cintiq 21ux to draw two people playing on a beach. I had to do this in photoshop and painter 10. So one drawing in each of the apps fresh from white background. I knocked that out in 40 minutes which was surprising to me since that same thing would take me hours on end to complete. They really freaked out at what I did which didn't make sense to me cause I didn't think it was that great, but whatever. They said I was hired if I wanted the job, then started showing me around the place and past projects they had worked on.

This is when that crap started happening. He started showing me erotic stuff and that this is where they wanted my 'expertise' at the office. I wasn't going to have any part of that in my life so straight up I told him I would not be doing this work for him and not involved in any way. I asked if there was a way I could focus on everything else they wanted done. He was set on wanting me to do that work for him; he started fighting for me. haha The original pay was going to be $36 an hour, he upped it a few times until he stopped at $42 an hour and said that was he last offer. I turned it down and thanked him for his time. I did want to work there since that would be such a relaxing job to do, but now that I have really thought about it... I don't think I would take the job if I was asked to work on other parts of the company. Either way I don't want to support someone that does work like that and for me to work in a different branch would still support them. I'm glad I didn't take it.

Seems an out of state job is not what I am going to get currently and thinking maybe I should focus on the Boise market for options again.

7 to 0

Well that makes it official. With the seven jobs that I applied for in California, none of them want to hire for the amount that I need to live off of. That or it is only for a while then I am out of a job. Seems Cali is not where I am suppose to be as of right now. I still plan to find a way down there, but I have been asking God when I can go down, I guess that right now is not the time for me to leave Idaho. I wonder if there is something that needs to be finished here before I leave. hmmm

One of those days

Over all today was a good day, but sometimes those things happen and it just throws you over the boat. Just very frustrated right now. I will be better in a few minutes, as I don't like to stay mad long cause it is pointless. I need to choose to be happy rather then mad, not letting it take control of things over me… I will just sit here and fume for a minute. Its my own choice to let it get to me rather then stay happy; most of the time I choose to stay happy as a life choice…. I like being happy.

See? I am happy already. :) Life is good.

Hmm so the passing thought went through my head when I was at a movie that I should try for the olympics. I talked to my former coach to see if I could still get in at the age I would be in 2016. He said it would be possible if I had the desire, talent, and money.

I definitely have the desire to do this! I had the talent when I was in gymnastics, even though I really wasn't focused on just that while there cause goofing off was way better. I think if I put all my effort and power into it I will be able to. Money is one of the problems here as it can get up to $1000 - $3000 a month when getting closer to the deadline of performance.

So there are a few concerns that I need to take into account about all this. The first and greatest thing is, what does God want me to do? Just because I really want to do it doesn't mean I need to go all out and do it. At this point in my life I want to go all out on everything and try it all, because I only have one life to live. The next thing is money, now God will provide if He wants me to do this so I won't let this be a deciding factor in itself. The last thing is I would loose close to 6 years of my social life. I know for a fact I would not be staying in Idaho for training, but I don't plan on doing that anyways, cause I would like to leave to where there are palm trees. haha Its more about I would be so busy with training that I would probably have little to no time to even call my own parents or family. They are no going to hold me back though, if I have a dream, no one nor nothing will stop me from that.

These are just a few things I need to consider, but I think I am still going to look into it anyways.

Twenty Ten

So I was going to do an elaborate posting of 2010, but I think I might just do a watered down version and move on. haha

Ok so it was epic, because early in the year I was finally able to take care of the dumb stomach problem that I had for to many years to count. It took years and family and friends to tell me to do something about it and go to the doctor. haha I am kinda stubborn when it comes to doctors. I listen better now about the doc cause I don't want to bother with something too long or let it got to far like that did. Thank you friends and family that kicked me in the butt to go get it fixed. :)

Much later that year I finished one of the biggest steps in my life. College. It kicked my butt and I kicked its butt. I pretty much failed high school…. or just didn't finish it, but with college I kicked it in gear and kept it a focus. I ended up with high honors and didn't miss a single class all the way through for two years. Ya, major change from HS. haha

Soon after that I started setting the goals that I kinda planned on doing after college. I won't list them all, but the most important ones most of you know already from talking to my and the spamming of the blog I have been doing. First off, becoming the best man I can be! This is most important and I plan to keep this through the rest of my life, for me and for others. Second was getting the body (and more) that I had in gymnastics, along with agility. Some people have noticed one or both of the changes. I want people to recognize both as that is an outwardly goal. I can always grow in both now and for the rest of my life, but I am well on my way to the goals I have set.

In a miracle stance I have noticed something interesting. I have asked God to slow or better the quality of my eyes as a faith of asking and believing that He can. I have noticed a difference over the past few months and can now see farther then I have in a long time. It is still blurry at the distance I can see, but it is 2 or 3 times farther then what I had before. This has strengthened my trust in God and (as before) even more now, that God can do anything we ask for.

There is probably more that I missed that is small or huge, but that covers what I can remember as I am typing. Its time to put to rest the last year that was so great and time to start 2011 as being the best year of my life.
