I'm kind of nervous about doing the shoots I have for next week because AN is not really known for it's... "backdrop". But I'll figure out something. I'll probably be going early on Friday (around noon) to get my pass for the weekend (because I wasn't able to register in advance this year), and then scout out the locations before my first shoot at 4pm.
So it's Victoria Day Weekend this weekend, for non-Canadians, that means it's our May long weekend, so fireworks have been going off all weekend long. But more importantly, I got my mom's car all to myself for the weekend! My mom was up at our cottage and I had a hangout with some buds, so she left me her car to take to get to my buddies' place. It was awesome!! I realized very quickly I'm a good driver... when my mom isn't in the car with me. I'm so used to her saying "slow down" and "watch it", that I always thought I was gonna be a bad driver. But after I had the car to myself... I realized her reacting so much to my driving was making me stressed out. I was totally fine by myself. And I even snuck out earlier today with the car again to do a bit of shopping. Hehehe, but yeah, definitely wanna get the car again soon. Maybe I can even get it for AN, so I won't have to worry about squeezing in with friends or taking transit.
I'm still working on pictures from the Kariya Park shoot we did a week and a half ago. I still have a few single shots to edit and all the group shots, so it'll be another week or 2 before all the photos are up from the shoot. I wanna get them done before AN, but it's not likely to happen since I'll be working the 3 days before AN, plus I'm busy tomorrow night. So maybe I can get a good chunk done tonight and tomorrow afternoon.
I still need to buy back up memory cards for the weekend. I only have one 4GB memory card and now that my laptop is relatively out of commission, I'm gonna need a lot more memory to be able to shoot for the entire weekend and not upload the photos after every shoot.
I won't be cosplaying this weekend either. I have decided to take the year off from cosplaying to focus on my photography, and to save money for school because my cosplaying usually ends up costing me a good chunk of change that I can't really afford this year.
I'm kind of excited for my summer! I've got a lot planned, both conventions and vacations. After AN, I'm doing ConBravo! in July and Otakuthon in August. Work has been going really good so far, getting lots of experience, it's artistically fulfilling by building stuff, and I'm getting a pretty good work out too because I'm lifting and carrying heavy things around all day. I'm going camping near Lake Huron with my boyfriend and a bunch of his college friends in late June and we're planning on doing a road trip to an amusement park in the States some time in mid-July. We might do DisneyWorld or Cedar Point, but it'll depend on how flexible work is for both of us.
So yeah, life is great! Very happy!
Unfortunately, I haven't had much time for myself to do anything art-wise. After this past semester at school, I don't plan on doing anything for much of the summer because I was so stressed out from school. I hate feeling like that, but I am looking forward to next year since I hear that we get to be a bit more personal and make more decisions on our work.
So that be it for now! I'll probably post a journal after AN with some updates.
