my life, my thoughts, on your computer.
Well, as i foretold heres another little snippet of my summer! As a Marianas Trench fan since Skin and Bones and shake tramp, i had a minor freak attack when i fond out that they would be playing in halifax and that not only could i go, but this would be what i consider my first real concert (i don’t usually count small local shows because i’ve been to a lot) In short, the concert was them along with Carly Rae Jepsen and it was nothing short of amazing. To top it off i spent the night afterwards hanging out with josh Ramsay(lead singer) and Ian Casselman (drummer) and the entirety of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Band (except Carly) in downtown Halifax after spotting them across the street and saying a friendly hello. Easily one of the best nights of my summer, and completely unforgettable.
So here it is, the song i have been addicted to and cant get enough of ever since:
Desperate Measures-Marianas Trench
So this summer has kind of flown by fast, really nauseatingly fast. Apologies for my drop off the face of the earth but to be fair i had a full time job and a life to balance. Not to mention some experiences that made this summer a once in a life time kind of thing. I even started learning a language, so trust me, i’ve been busy!
Ohh my, well i don’t know where the time went but it’s been two months since my last post. I apologize for the huge gap between things but I have been swamped with school work and other exciting projects for extra curricular’s that i will share later on. I just thought i would post a little update and let you know I haven’t forgotten about my blog and will do my best to balance it with everything else.
I love photography and as much as I love the convenience of digital photography and being able to see the picture right away to decide if it is necessary to take another,I still have to say that film photography will always have my heart.
Theres something about it that digital cameras just don’t have, and using film makes you so much more selective and careful of the photos you are taking rather than the point and shoot mentality that most have of digital photography, with film there is an art to it.One of my favourite things about it though is the way pictures look, they may not be extremely crisp and clear such as digital photographs but they have an amazing look that nothing else can capture quite the same way.Well after my little rant, heres the photos I took the other day wandering around with my Dad’s Canon AE-1. Enjoy :)
in the one above the frames overlapped but turns out it made a really cool effect!
Well due to my love of trees and their natural beauty of course fall is my favourite season! so here are a few pictures I have taken so far this fall, enjoy! :)
since i love it so there will probably be more fall pictures to come!
It seems like it was just the other day that I was introducing myself and announcing a close to my first year at king’s, and now BAM! I’m back to king’s on the 5th for another year of studying, adventures, and I’m sure there will be a fair amount of crazy in there too, after all there seemed to be last year. As excited as I am to be going back to Halifax I am sad to say that summer is over. I haven’t posted many of my adventures from this summer but maybe I will have to revive blast from the past and relive them later this year because some of them are a bit crazy and good for a laugh. Although I do feel like my pictures tell their own story of my summer. One of my favourite adventures of the summer was my time in the news room at The News.
Today I am sad to say is my last day at The News, and I will honestly miss being in the newsroom with the great journalists that I have job shadowed and written stories for over the last month. Before I started here I always though that I had a pretty good idea of what a news room was like and how it worked, but this experience has taught me so much more. Over the course of a month I have learned how to interview people over the phone more easily and efficiently, I have learned the benefits of bouncing story ideas off of co-workers, and I have learned that in a small town gossip is worth a lot. Oh, and my last tip i received, always wear a skirt to construction site interview or pictures hahaha. Overall it’s been an amazing month and i will be sad to leave The News.
