i feel like i've done nothing today, although i've actually done quite a bit. i woke up at 11:15 - super late for me, so i guess that's why i feel the way i do. anyway, i have:

1) finished my personal statement for UIC/U of I
2) cleaned the bathroom
3) brushed mickey (my dog)

...and that's it. okay. now that i have written out a list, and it's so small, i feel useless. i guess i'll go fold some laundry after this.

i've been seriously in a harry potter mood lately (note the icon, haha) - i've watched all the movies, i'm about to re-read the series....i guess i'm in a withdrawal since it's the end of the series. *tear*

last wednesday, i had senior photos. it went really well. i brought my camera and my clarinet as props. the 1st photographer was really fun! and i even

thanks! i use a nikon d50 with the 18-55mm lens and 50mm f/1.8 lens (i took the above photo with the 50mm). the d50 is not manufactured anymore, but the new nikon d80 is very good. since it's new, it will be more expensive than a used d50 (which are hard to find now), but used cameras can be kinda iffy, so i'd suggest a new one. you can find the d80 with the at a good (but pricey) price here: http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-10-2MP-Digital-18-55mm-Zoom-Nikkor/dp/B000MLG9K2/ref=pd_bbs_sr_9/105-3801321-9977252?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1187132574&sr=8-9

there's also the nikon d40 and the d40x, which is much less expensive than the d80, but has less features. you also can't use the old, less expensive quality lenses such as 50mm f/1.8 with the d40 and d40x. you can use those lenses, but you have to use manual focuse (which can be really tedious).

check these websites for camera reviews:

the canon digital rebel xt (the updated version is the xti, if you want that one) is another good camera. it's on par with the d50, and is still available on amazon for $549. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007QKN22/sr=8-1/qid=1187132986/ref=noref/105-3801321-9977252?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1187132986&sr=8-1

you also have the option to get any of these cameras without the kit lens (the website will say 'body only') and just get the 50mm (canon and nikon have 50mm lenses), which is only $100.

wow. i hope this isn't too confusing! just lemme know if you need anymore help. ^_-

i'm glad i'm not the only early riser! i don't know too many early birds. :P

and yay! senior photos! i can't believe these 4 years have gone by so fast....

Oh my goodness..you're cute as a button! I love that picture..it's so darn cute! You look gorgeous! I wish I would have stayed a Harry fan and kept reading the books. I stopped reading those things years ago. I'm so curious about the newest book..I might have to go to Wally World and pick up a copy.
