Foto February | Last Photos + Recap!

Eeeeee, it is the middle of March and I’m finally getting the last of these pictures on my computer. Have mercy. In general, I think I completed most of the prompts, but I overestimated how much time I would have to focus on this in the midst of all the life stuff and random photography gigs…

Foto February Week 2

// Canon 5DMKII Nikon 28mm f/4 1/125 ISO 640  // dawn light challenge // I decided to bring my big camera along with us to IKEA over the weekend to try out my new fancy sling and because I don’t actually think I’ve ever brought it with us to a trip there. It was fun….

The One with El primero

Today is el primero de febrero. Which means it is foto february. I grabbed my camera to use it today, to find the batteries were dead. Sad. So in 2011 foto feb is kicking off with a dark iPhone camera photo of my dinner. I made fish. For the second time. Not so sure I’m…

I break stuff.

My sweet lil’ macbook is back up and running, thanks to a sweet boyfriend and Time Machine. I have all my goods back and can finally resume lesson planning and portfolio at a glancing. Yahoo. I hadn’t really entertained the idea seriously that my stuff was gone for good, but if it had, I can…

I am so behind on foto feb. Maybe next year I’ll hit all 28…who knows. Between full time teaching starting, getting the f-u-n-k (thank you, school germs) and trying to maintain some sort of a social life I haven’t had much ganas to do much of anything that requires using my brain during non-school time. Which…

eleven teacher happies

1. The glorious feeling of sweatpants after a long, exhausting day.2. Setting your alarm clock for 30 minutes early– just to be able to snooze twice.3. Starbucks Fridays. ‘Nuff said.4. Making a student (who never smiles) laugh.5. Helping a thug of a student right before a test, and the earnest thank you that follows.6. After-school non-content…

Art

My sweet artsy friend, Emily made a proposition to me the other night in quite possibly the most effective way possible…”Hey Kellie, do you want money?”. My response: um, always. The Colton Review is an art and literary journal on campus that features work of people on campus. There is a monetary prize if your work…

I am a pack rat. I mean, I don’t like to throw away anything. Scrapbooks I have from all my trips abroad and my time at Meredith are like 75% scraps of meaningless paper that I want to keep because it means something. I remember my parents used to comment about my great grandmother Gracie who…

Considering the week ahead, to be blogging right now can only be defined as irresponsible. However, I had a wonderful weekend and I wanted to blog while it was fresh and before the weight of this week sinks in. M and I don’t really do Valentine’s day (as you may remember from last February), so…

Excuses, excuses.

Having friends that are engaged is awesome… because now I have an excuse to buy those fun stickers from Target I always spend hours looking at. Fun huh?
