This weekend, much like the last weekend, turned out to be pretty nice. Also since I managed to write a journal last week, maybe I can make it a weekly thing. As long as I can find something I did that is worth publishing.
Friday was definitely the high point. My boss and I talk about photography on a regular basis. He does it on the side, and takes it seriously, and I really enjoy it and am terrible at it. Friday he just decided to give me his previous camera. It's a Canon EOS 50D. Probably one of the nicest things I've ever owned. Before this weekend I have always shot on 35mm film with a Canon FTB. I also develop my own film, and being such a bad photographer generally only four or so shots from a roll were salvageable. Even though the technology is older by now, I'm blown away that I get to review and change film speed and all that with a button push. The fact that he just gave it to me totally caught me off guard and was an amazing gift.
Later Friday was another big milestone for me, I finally made my 60th payment on my car! I was very foolish as a freshman in college and nearly 100% financed a used car. It was only a year old and had low-ish miles, and now it's mine! Now the only debt I need to get out of is my college loans, but they will happily accompany me to the grave.
Saturday and Sunday were both great just because we had a heat wave out of nowhere and it was 73 degrees F all day. We were able to play football and run around all day Saturday, and while Sunday was mostly studying, I did get to enjoy lunch and dinner outside, so I have to place to complain.
Basically this was a weekend full of blessings, and I hope everyone else had one better than mine. I know PAX South seemed like a really big hit, I can't wait to see the footage from that.
