Self-portrait, January 17, 2009

I’ve been in a creative swing for the past few days and have finally gotten back into using my camera on a regular basis. I have missed having a creative outlet with everything else that has been going on. The self-portrait above is exactly how I feel about my life right now. Some of it is in focus, while the rest isn’t. It’s somewhat colorful, some close and some far away. All mixed up and distracting while I am sharp and clear on what I am doing. It fits well, for right now.

I am officially booked to photograph Nicol and Bobby’s wedding on June 20. Honestly, I am petrified of doing it. I don’t want to be the one responsible for something that can’t be reproduced again. Nicol reassured me tonight that it’ll be fine, and that she trusts me, so I just have to have faith in myself. I’m sure I’ll get more nervous as the time gets closer.

My library job is going great. My boss and the program director both liked my Candidate School booklet, which was handed out today for participants in that program. I’m anxious to find out how that went. Diana actually said that she was vey impressed at how I took control of that project and ended up with something very strong for the program to give out. That was a huge confidence booster for me. I also finished the media release for February’s program schedule. Talk about a tedious task! It’s took me nearly 2 hours of cutting and pasting from the ConnectNow booklet to finish. I might just start on the March one on Monday to have it done. Other than that, my days there are filled with meetings. Strategic planning, ConnectNow planning, program planning, and sporadic ones with the different sections of the library like Youth Services, Young Adult, etc. I didn’t anticipate so many meetings, but I actually like them because they break up the work hours that are spent in my cubicle designing, etc. I am the type of person who needs a break in between or lots of things happening at the same time to keep my focus in check. I don’t like growing bored with just one thing to think about or finish.

School starts on Tuesday, and life is going to be a lot more hectic. At least I’ll have more to blog about here though. I feel like I have been neglecting this site. I’m going to try to work on that.

  1. You have lighter color hair and this picture is so unique and fantastic, but maybe someday I can see your full portrait, I mean, darn, there’s a camera in the way, not to mention 2000miles…

    : )

    Your success sounds so good to read about, and from what I’ve seen of your photography, I think you’ll do just fine with the wedding, you know what you’re doing.
