My father

I stopped by my parents house the other day to have my dad teach me to fix my bike.

He's a pretty rad guy. All I really want is to be like him when I grow up.



I entered this photo in the PDN/Billboard Ultimate Music Moment contest.

I'd really like it if you voted for my photo.

Some things that will have to happen before I go to college:

1. Rest.

One of the biggest reasons I have no desire to go to school right now is even thinking about it makes me tired, emotionally and physically. I see how hard my friends work and I don't think I have the strength for that right now.

2. Money.

I need to figure out how to pay for it, which I suppose means that I need to find a job that I could stand working while I save.

My current job does not fit that bill.

Also, student loans really, really, really scare me. Really.

3. Research.

I want to go to school for photography - this much I know. Pretty much everything else is up in the air right now. I don't know if I should go to art school or a university, I don't know how my portfolio stacks up against other applicants and I don't even know what part of the country I'd like to be in.

4. Enthusiasm.

This is, by far, the most important ingredient that I'm missing. Once I get excited, I can force myself to make the other things happen. But right now the prospect is more daunting then exciting.

Anyway, this is a short list I've come up with. As I write this, here at work, I'm thinking about how I'd much rather be in a photography class then talking about PCI compliance, and that gets me a little excited about the idea of school.

So, is school in my future? I truly have no idea. In the mean time I'm working on my portfolio and trying to figure out how to get more work and exposure.

So, you know, I guess we'll see.
