This has been a very interesting semester. There have been lots of changes in the past few months. First of all, I finally declared my photography minor. I'm not sure if I love journalism or photography more, anyway let's just mix them. I also have this Anthropology minor situation that I'm not too happy about. In order to declare a minor inside of the Communications school at Ithaca College, you first have to declare a minor outside of it. So I randomly picked Anthropology and it will probably change soon. I might just declare a language as a minor instead. We'll see.
Event #2: I applied for another study abroad program. Hopefully I get in. Instead of my exchange like before, it's an intensive language learning program. Basically I would be sent to Jaipur, India to become fluent in Hindi. So we'll see how that goes. I'm dying to go back to India just so I can take better photos with my new camera.
Event #3 Broke up w/ my boyfriend. Messy, let's not get into it lol.
Event #4 Took a spontaneous trip to Montreal (definitely for the bars) and stayed at a hostel where I met some pretty interesting people. For example, Hussain Naqvi from Pakistan, I think his name is Jordin from Spain, and a guy Mike Kerr from Winnipeg who strangely shares the same exact name as my friend here. What's weirder? We hooked up, so now I've hooked up with a guy who has the same name as my friend. It's weirder than it sounds, trust me.
Event #5 NEW CAMERA! (if you hadn't guessed already) I've finally stepped into the world of Digital SLRs with the Canon Rebel XS. Loving it so far. It is about 935,432 times better than my little point and shoot sony camera. I'm still hanging onto that one though so I have something with me at all times. Gotta love its smallness. But yes, my new camera is great. I have a little fish eye lens, and a zoom lens (75-300mm)
Not sure if I have anymore exciting events to share. I have one more week of vacation, which in my opinion was a little long. I'm probably the only person who complains about their vacation being too long... oh well. it's a little boring when all your friends go back to college a week before you.
Anyway, check out the dog sledding pics I just put up. Strangely they were having a huge snow sledding event in the town next to mine. Seeing as I live near Boston I never imagined there would be any sort of dog sledding events near me. I got some cool pics though. Yep.
