Grad School: Semester 3 – Week 2

Thursday, September 7th, 2006 | LiveJournal Archives | 2 Comments

Well, week two is coming to a close but in a way it feels like week one. Last week our photo studio class was all but canceled and our photo history class was a brief overview of how much reading we are doing. I have to say I’m pretty overwhelmed by how much reading we will have to do.

I volunteered to be in the first crit group on top of that so I have to have my first group of work ready for Sept 21st. I need to figure out how to shoot photos again, I need to figure out how to scout locations again, I just need to get out there and do it.

I have a bit of a rejuvenated eye as to what I’ll be doing photographically this semester after class today, so I’m excited to do it, I just need to squeeze it into my already hectic schedule. While I was really enjoying Steve’s Eberron game, I’m kind of glad he decided to end it indefinitely, this way I get a weekend back. I’ve posed the option of moving my game to his saturday, which then frees up all my Sundays to work on class stuff. I also will still have early saturday mornings to go out and shoot. Derek is running his P’Tolus game this Saturday and I hope to have at least 150 photos before I play. I’m crossing my fingers and toes on this. There’s a lot of construction going on in Denton, so I have that going for me… I also need to find some abandoned spaces and take advantage of them as well.

This semester is going to be rough, but I’m pretty jazzed about it. I just need to pace myself, not get behind or loose steam, just take each challenge in stride and it will all work out.

I was talking with Dornith after class today and I am very excited about this semester. I like everyone in class and feel a very cool vibe happening in the group (though I still feel a bit of the wallflower, surprisingly enough). I expect to see some great things in that class, and I hope to be a part of at least some of that greatness.

Additionally, I am presently VERY excited for Heather as well. She’s got some very great prospects both academically and professionally on the horizon and things look really good. I’ve not seen her so chipper in a while. I wish we had the money to celebrate the elevated mood alone let alone the potential celebration we may need to have later. I’m sure she’ll post about it later in her journal, so you can read about it there.

Tomorrow may be a bike ride day.
