ehh

back from mexico. absolutely amazing trip. the mexico blogs will come soon, but im still processing stuff.

speaking about processing stuff...im trying to edit all my photos from the trip. this is a difficult task considering i shot 10GB. Which on my camera is roughly 1500 pictures. you can click here and see some that i've posted.

its crazy to think that i have less than 2 months of college left. but honestly, all i can think about is doing art. lately ive just been so burnt out with school and with hospitals and with nursing and all i want to do is go take pictures or play music. myself along with all of the other nursing students are finding out that all of the jobs that were "guaranteed" to get after graduation are not really there. or the jobs are there but for every job there are 50 applicants.

maybe God is using my love for art to alleviate any anxieties of not finding a job. honestly, if i don't have a job right away, big deal. it will just give me an excuse to do what i love. art.

435

As you know, a few months ago I bought a Nikon D90. (Please let me know if I talk about it too much or if its getting in between our relationship). I was online a while ago and decided I would look to see if I could find any photo contests. It made sense to try and profit from my latest purchase. After searching for a while, I found a local competition put on by The Mid-America Regional Council. Don't ask me what they're all about, but they had advertised a photo contest with "Transportation" as the category. They were looking for pictures of what we valued as far as transportation goes in KC. I browsed my iphoto library in search of a fitting picture and decided upon this one:
That was back in December, and I just heard back from them last week letting me know I had won first place in my category and would be sent my "free night stay in the Overland Park Marriott Hotel" in the mail.

Interesting prize. Whats even more interesting is that you can see the hotel in the background of my picture. Now comes the question...what to do with my complementary stay in the Marriott. Stay tuned for the decision.
