I have arrived

So I made it to Belleville. The trip was fairly uneventful. The landing was interesting in Winnipeg. I noticed that we were going down fast and sure enough, it was a bouncy landing. Once over the great lakes, there was some turbulence. Then I had to run with 4 pieces of luggage to catch my bus to Belleville. I made it into town at 10 and found my way to my dorm room. Got everything unpacked and am now here. Sitting in the cafeteria thinking about getting some lunch. I have only met 2 people so far, but I think one of them just left this morning. This weekend is the big move out/move in weekend. All the old students are moving out and the summer students are moving in. I hope I get some girls in my dorm. :) The cab driver was telling me about all the cadet girls that move in to res for the summer. Sweet sweet girls.

Party, The next day and the future

So My going away party was a blast. I'd like to thank every single person that attended. You made my night. So much so that I don't recall most if the night after 12. I also want to say a valiant effort by all on polishing off 11 bottles of wine. We didn't quite hit the goal of 20, but 11 was still pretty good.

The next day was a little rough, Didn't do a whole lot other than head to Amigo's for lunch, sleep and catch Steven's play.

Today was spent moving the contents of my life to my moms house and getting all my luggage packed in preperation for the move on Wednesday. A masive thanks to Danielle and Brian. they helped once again and I could not have done it without them. I have most everything out of the basement and things are now starting to hit home that I am moving. Heck I have my suitcases packed! It doesn't get much more real than that.

In photo related news, I sold a print today. Made some cash. Feels good to make cash doing something that I love.

Time is running out

This is poser disposer. They are a local band that really killed this weekend. Friday on a whim, I decided to hit a local show. I had nothing else to do and really wanted to hear some live music. Was I ever in for a treat. These guy really kick ass. Fast and hard, they had the entire bar (The Basement) running around like crazed animals. They even managed to get one guy to strip naked and mosh for about 25 minutes. I am going to miss the live music when I leave. With 50,000 people, I am not expecting much of a music scene.

The rest of the weekend was pretty fun too. Went on a pub crawl, then hit an 80's party afterwards. I think I have seen enough 80's related stuff to last a while though.

This Friday is my going away party. I do hope that everyone can make it out. I know that I am only going away for 2 months, but do people really need a reason to party on a Friday? I think not. If anyone needs directions, call or email me and I'll get you hooked up...

No Pictures

No pictures for this post. I have a bunch from Dallas's grad that I have to work on. My flash was being stupid and it over exposed a bunch of frames, so I have some post-processing work to do. I now know why people rave about Nikons flash system. Canon is lacking in that department. Speaking of Dallas's grad, it was quite enjoyable. The speaches dragged on a bit, but the food was great and the after party was fun.

So the Cadillac is back on the road. It had an issue with the transmission. It decided to do a self purge of all it's fluids over the winter. I have a feeling the front seal is blown, oh well. I can live with it the way it is, but I should fix it...

In preperation for school and keeping myself sane, I chopped the control panel from the old Commiecade arcade machine and turned it into a one player controller that I can fit in my suicase. I can now play mame in Res. Score!It isn't anything too fancy, but it gets the job done.

In s strange note, I was contacted by Streetlight Scenery. They apparently saw me taking pictures of their show and wouuld like to see the pictures. This seems normal, but the strange part is I never talked to anyone from the band. So how they got my contact info is WAY beyond me...

Punks not dead

So I went to a gig on Friday with Danielle and Brian. Danielles work friend Josh was putting it on. We get there and the doors aren't open yet so We went for a pint at O'sheas. Once we see people start going in, we decide to head in. Man did I ever feel like the old one there. I swear that most people were under 18. I did get hassled at the door by the rent-a-cops for having my camera. All it took to get in was Danielle finding Josh and him giving the OK. After that no problems. The bands were Adolyne, Streetlight scenery and Tombstone Diaries (Who ruled the night) It was a blast. It has been ages since my last show. I have to start going to more.

So I got an e-mail from school. They need someone to take pictures for the handbook and Ryan dropped my name. I have to get them a portfolio and resume. I have the portfolio, but I have never had a proper resume. I have to write one up tomorrow and get that to the school. A little extra cash is always good.

Go listen to some heavy music and enjoy the nice weather...
