Looky what I made...

So my roommate Kelli has the two cameras.  They are really cool.  One is a fisheye camera, the pictures when developed look like they would if a fish saw the stuff, if that was explained well.  um yeah anyways the other one takes 4 shots on the same picture so when developed it's divided into 4.  So I got jealous of Kelli and her cameras and I wanted my own cool camera.  So I got onto Amazon to look for some cool cheap cameras.  I came across one you had to assemble yourself out of cardboard and it was a pinhole camera.  It was also $24.  Yeah I was like how lame.  I have instructions on how to make a pinhole camera in that build it with boxes book I had as a child.  No way was I going to pay $24 for something I could make with a box and film.  
But I then decided I was going to make one, a pinhole camera that is.  So I scoured the internet for instructions on how to make one.  I found many good instructions but they all called for paper film which would require me developing it on my own.  I'm not so into the buying all the things necessary for developing, all though I did find instructions on how to do that too and it seems simple enough.  But It seems cheaper to take a roll of film to the store and have them developed.  In fact it is.  
So I then found the perfect instructions.  For a matchbox pinhole camera.  Matchboxpinhole.com that's the website if you want to go there.
It's awesome.  So all I had to buy was film and tape.  Today I made my camera because I finished all my work for the week.  Yes I know I'm amazing.  anyways... the end result is a bit on the ugly side so I covered my cam in scrapbook paper to make it uber cute.  
The first picture I took with it was of a potato with my awesome necklace.  
I know Potato?! but remember that story in the Wayside book about the kid who could get a tatoo and all the kids were telling him to get all these really cool things and he came back the next day with a tatoo of a potato on his ankle.  Oh LOL I love that story so that's why the potato.
Plus if the picture doesn't really come out it's not a big loss.  
Plus here is my amazing roommate playing her ukulele singing the song she wrote.  yes she's quite creative.

Oh What a Day is Today...


Yesterday when I was walking home from work I looked up and made a wish on a star.  I thouhgt it was a legit wish...but when I got home my anti-wish happened.  What a drag.  Not really I just wish I was 10 again that was a good age.  Sure I was a fat little girl but I didn't have all these different stressors in my life.  But I guess that's the point of getting old
.  

In other news my legs are really smooth.  And all my scrapbooking stuff is here with me in Provo so I am excited to start scrapbooking my pictures and things.  I love Scrapbooking.

And We're Off...

Well school started again. I only have 4 classes exactly 12 credits so it shouldn't be too hard Just a lot of work. I have work heavy classes I an tell. Mostly reading. Well and Math that should have like homework everyday so you know...

I'm off to a good start though. I got 100% on a quiz I took today and I've already read the first chapter of my Geology of the Planets book and notes and I'm almost done with American Heritage. The snag in my progress is I don't have money to buy the books I need for math class and American Heritage.

Ethan gave me his old AH main book. But there are two more I need and no one has those but the book store. And math I think I can use the textbook from the library but there's also a packet included with it so we'll see if I need that. My Geology of the Planets book is online so that's awesome. And New Testament I just need the New Testament. Which I have and then some.

I went upstairs in the bookstore just to scope out the books and I got a free notebook. A 4 subject notebook. So that was awesome, especially since I only have four classes.

It's snowing today which I don't like. GRR.

Break was good because I took a break from everything and was like I'm not gonna worry about anything at all. So I didn't. Not even about my cavities, of which I had 6. Not even when the dentist said he was going to do one with out anesthesia. I was just like whatever.

I thought I just saw Mr. Huffine, but it wasn't him weird.
