Erratic posting

Hey everyone!

There’s a few things going on that have started to interfere with my schedule. We’re apartment hunting, the roommate is graduating soon, and we might have a second roommate join us soon. So that posting schedule I had has gone out the window. Updates are going to be sporadic for the next few weeks, possibly more. I’ll see if I can have something up  by Friday, but I make no promises.

Sorry for the late notice. I’m usually more active on twitter or tumblr since they don’t require much effort.

Hair today, gone tomorrow

Or is itHare today gone tomorrow? I’ll figure that out later.

I’m still trying to figure out a good schedule for updating. Methinks it’ll be Mondays and Fridays (since those are the days that work best right now) but, like the internet, nothing is set in stone. But it might come back in meme form. If I can find more webcomics to review, the Sunday review might come back, but I wouldn’t hold out for it.

Anyways, I have taco bell tacos to finish off and a backlog to start working on so I don’t go a week with out posting again! Whoosh!

Guest Post Schedule

Okay! A list of scheduled updates for the coming two weeks!

Sept. 2nd (This Friday): Meg Crowshaw

Sept. 4th: Andrea Judy

Sept. 9th: Natasha Trinite

Sept. 11th: Andrea Judy

Sept. 12: Meg Crowshaw

Since I didn’t get enough guest posts, there will be no update on Friday, Sept 16th. But you guys and gals are used to a lack of updates right? Ba-dum tish. I’m allegedly getting back on Sept 15/16, so I might post something. It might be pictures, but it’ll still be better than nothing, right?

Radio silence

Sorry for the radio silence this week. There’s been a major upset with a friend of mine, and I’ve been doing some hard thinking about stuff recently. For the sake of saving you guys and gals from some major disappointment, there won’t be a post on Friday, but I’ll return again with a Sunday Review.

Again, sorry for the radio silence. See y’all on Sunday.

99 problems

and a camera is among them.

I have quite a conundrum going on at the moment, one that goes beyond graduate schools. My parents have promised me some money to help get a new camera (mine is pushing 6 years old; it has 3 .2 mega pixles). And I have a few contenders.

The Canon SX 30IS

This is the first one that I fell in love with. A friend of mine has one, and I got the chance to play with it for a few days, and I really liked it. It was a definate upgrade from my camera, and I loved the super zoom feature and flip out screen. It was a new and fresh idea compared to my camera.

One thing I didn’t like about it was the bulkiness of it. It’s def not one that I can grab and go, but then again these days I’m not grabbing and going any where.

The Canon G12

Another camera that I fell in love with. It’s a step up from the SX 30, and still has the flip out screen feature that I like. Plus its compact! It’s a little/a lot more complex than the SX 30, and by extension my current camera. Its kinda like a baby DSLR, and I think its adorable.

But I feel it may be a little too complex for me. I would feel bad getting a complex camera that I won’t use like half the features on. On the flip side, I do want to improve my picture taking skills and get into photo retouching/editing (but not too much editing).

Panasonic Lumix GF2

Along the same lines of the G12 is the Lumix GF2. I heart the compactness of it! I got to play with one while at work, and I thought it was amazing. It made me feel like a paparazzo, minus the whole stalking bit.

I wasn’t too keen on the giant lens attached at its front, and the lens I did play with, didn’t have that great of a zoom on it. I would like to not have to go broke trying to get more lenses for the camera, but the one that comes in the box doesn’t do it for me.

The Nikon D3000

The  entry level DSLR that I also got to hold for a minute was the Nikon D3000. I liked the feel of it, but it was waaay over my head, and I panicked holding it it my hands, so I quickly passed it back to my co workers.

Since work offers classes on how to use DSLRs, I feel like I might be able to handle it, but like the Lumix, I don’t want to have to dig myself into a hole trying to get better lenses for the camera.

I was hoping that you, intrepid reader, could give me a hand in helping to decide between my “top” four choices. I feel like I do want to get a DSLR and (as one of my coworkers said) “grow with my camera”. But I just don’t know how much growing I’m gonna do.

ARHG! This is so hard! Help!

PS, we’re gonna go with an update schedule of M/W/F (that aren’t guaranteed to be sprints) with a possible weekend update for now. Creativity and my muse ran off somewhere, and I have to go find them.

Art imitates life

Sorry about the radio silence for most of last week. I lost internet around Tuesday night, and didn’t get it back until Thursday night. It was a “network outage” in my area, which is probably code for, “We don’t like you, so no internet for you. LOLZ”

This week, I actually have 4 days of work, so we’ll see about doing an in between update on Tues/Thurs. Also, running low on Sprints (again), so there may or may not be one on Friday.

I’m so desperate to hear back from my last grad school and not be stuck in this rut of  “What do I do now?” and not apply for jobs.

Le sigh. Such is life. Que sera sera, etc. On to the sprint!
