Grab A Martini, It's Gonna Be A Long One

Oh my goodness, do we think I can update y'all in one post? Well, let's find out.  Lots has happened since I last posted.  First off, something I mentioned in my last post, I resigned from my job.  My last day is October 28th.  This had been coming for quite a while.  Obviously I'm not going to go into detail about why I am leaving, but I can tell you that I feel 100 pounds lighter.  Then after I gave notice I got a yicky bug.  I'm sure stress made me more susceptible and it's going around, but it kicked my but for four days.  Now I'm dealing with transitions, lots of transitions.  Transitions at work, transitions after I leave, and grad school looming large on the horizon.  But let me instead mention a few good things.  I recently did two paid photography gigs.  Pretty cool for my portfolio and my wallet. The photos from one of these events may be featured in a magazine soon, and I will certainly keep you posted on that.  Here are a few from the events.

There is also an exciting event coming up for me that involves a trip to our nation's capital around Halloween.  Anybody know what I'm talking about?  That's right my liberal lefty friends, I'm flying out to go to Jon Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity on October 30th.  I'm meeting my cousin and The Girl Wife Who Is Way Too Good For Him (you remember them from last year's wedding) and staying with her family friends.  I have never been to Washington D.C. before and am so excited to be a part of this event with these cool people.  I know Jon will get some great guests and speakers.  I'm sure I will have tons of amazing photos for you when I return.  In the meantime, I hope to be able to blog a little more frequently.  The least I can do is give you some pictures.  The problem is that when I am stressed, my motivation to take my camera everywhere with me goes down.  And when I do have it, I often don't have the energy to get it out and use it.  I can tell you that there is a Richard Simmons-esque Arrow photo waiting for you in the near future so stay tuned.  Thanks for hanging in there.  Now back to work!
