In my abundance of free time, I have realized that I need something to do. I have spent the majority of my life following a schedule packed with school + extra curricular activities + multiple jobs + social outings + internships + etc. Now, with my temporary break from real life, I am finding myself rather… Discontent. I love our new place, I love being to stay up until 2 a.m. reading an absolutely addicting book and then sleeping until 9, I love that I am able to exercise again and cook healthy meals. But I miss the routine, I miss working, I miss the fun morning vent sessions before the work day starts, I miss having a bit of time to quietly read as much news as possible while chugging some burning coffee or a mason jar of green juice before my colleagues arrive at the office.
So I decided to troubleshoot BME’s Nikon D40. He feared he would have to buy a new lens or a new camera or something because it didn’t seem to be functioning properly but neither of us had the time to really figure out what was wrong. However, *fingers crossed*, nothing really appears to be wrong. There were quite a few terrible custom settings (shut off after 4s, etc) that were easily adjusted after studying the manual but other than that, it has been a rather fun toy for the past two days. Hopefully this means there will be less terrible photos of food and more not-so-terrible photos of food, the dogs, our new place, and the gorgeous outdoors.
Here’s a taste, ranging from Boh’s refusal to acknowledge personal space, her dreams of Oklahoma crushing Tennessee this weekend and Chico napping in his favorite spot to my thumb slowly turning green.
