PC .2 ~ Shutter Speed

Last year I took another photography class. Well, its actually the same photography class that I took before but some of the assignments were a little different. I've been meaning to share these pictures with you but I never got around to it.  (i just checked my previous posts...turns out, I already shared with you the first assignment.)
My second assignment was obviously a shutter speed assignment. For those of you who don't know what a shutter speed is.... google it. I had to turn in three stop action shots, three motion blur shots, and one panning. again, if you don't know what that is, i recommend you google it. I would explain it to you but I'm terrible at explaining things!

Okay, lets do some catching up..
I haven't posted in a while because I haven't been editing pictures. I am super behind on editing pictures. I've been behind before but I've never been this behind since I started taking pictures and its kind of overwhelming and I hate editing (with a passion) and editing my pictures is frustrating for me because i think they all suck and I just have to put up with what I have. + Also, I'm done with school for the semester (yay!), but I start summer school next in a week and a half (boo!). + My boyfriend works like crazy and hardly ever has time off. + I haven't been writing songs, cuz they all suck. I need to learn to be okay with writing songs that suck and just keep doing it until I come up with one that I think is pretty good. + I did, however, try to record me singing a cover song yesterday. I took so many freakin takes and they all pretty much sucked. I kept getting interrupted which was super frustrating. + I've been trying to work out, but after about a week or so I feel pretty unmotivated. + I've been reading my books and I've almost read 80% of the books I own (which is my current goal). My overall goal is to read all the books I own (I have about 50 left) and when I do that I will reward myself with rereading the Series of Unfortunate Events. I'm dying to read those books, so I'm pretty motivated. I just have so many left to read and its gonna take me forever. + I am in desperate need of a job, but no one will hire me. I currently have a lead on a job, but idk if I will get it. Prayers would be awesome. + Well this has been an update from me to you. + I look at my blog every day and think that I should probably post something, but I don't have any pictures to post. 

Which is better, b/w? or color? or abstract?

My grandma gave me this. 
She bought it in the 60's
I'm in love with pearls and its the most beautiful ring I've ever seen.
The setting is extremely unique and I get all kinds of compliments on it.
Its very special to me. 
One day I will give it to one of my daughters.


we interrupt the regularly scheduled program to bring you important news...

I know this is a blog where I dump photos, but I'm also a musician
and I just started a youtube channel where I can post my own personal
music as well as covers of awesome songs and THIS is a link
to my first song on youtube. (spoiler - I didn't write this song)
I just wanted you all to know. and I had to post it somewhere
because I don't currently have a facebook. 
thanks for being awesome


all leaves fall in the end.

I have a love/hate relationship with everything about school. 
I love that i have something to do. I hate that its school
I love having some place to go. I hate that its school.
I love meeting people there. I hate doing school
I love that its cheep. I hate that its secular.
Sometimes I love school. But usually i just hate it.
