Alive and well

I know, I know. I haven't been keeping up on this blog thing like I said I would but at least it hasn't been six months since my last post.

School is going pretty good, I am keeping busy with school, work, and homework. My class schedule is pretty easy on MWF with intro to advertising and then I have work WF from 12:45 until about 10 at night which isn't to bad. TR is really busy though with digital photography at 8:30 till 11:30 and english from 11:30 to 1 and web development from 1 to 3 and then I get to relax and do my homework.

I am working back at the Shakespeare Festival again doing the same thing. I am a supervisor again this fall and it is going pretty smooth, the only fire wasn't on my shift and I just had all of the high school kids come and watch shows during my watch. I had to work a triple on Friday because of the high schoolers and I was suppose to work another double but I was able to talk the other supervisor to trade me one shift for the evening so I had at least somewhat of a Saturday.

I have been keeping busy with my photography. I did some head-shots for a friend of mine in the theatre department and another one of my friends in the theatre department gave my name and number to one of the directors and I am now doing a photo call for one of the student shows here on campus. Photo call is just a night after the show were the cast stays in costume and does certain scenes from the play starting from the end and moving to the start. This is because the actors are already in their end of show costumes and the scenery is set up for the end of show.

I miss everyone and I hope I get to see all of you guys really soon and I will try and keep up to date on this here blog but i am not sure when the next time will be!

he IS alive!

I know what y'all are thinkin and yes I am alive. I know that I have slacked pretty hard on keeping this thing going over the last year but I will try and do better this year!

Work has been going on for the last few weeks. We have been really busy this year! Ticket sales are up 20% from last year and I got a raise this year so I am getting a little bit more dough. This year instead of just working at one theater I have to work at both the indoor and outdoor theaters. So far work has been pretty calm. We have only had a lot of wheelchairs and no dogs yet this year. I have made $30 in tips this year as well. We are discouraged from taking tips but nowadays any little bit helps!

This summer was a lot of fun! I was able to go to Yellowstone for the first time and see all of the cool geothermal sights and take some pictures of all the different animals there. It was good to just have some time with my mom and Royce and not have to worry about work or school or anything like that.

I also got to go to the supercross finals in Las Vegas this summer with my dad and everyone. It was really fun and a new experience. Lots of girls there ;) and a lot of exhaust fumes but that I was expecting. It was fun to experience that and see something that I enjoy.

School is going to be pretty easy going this coming semester. With just one class on MWF and three classes on TR I am going to be pretty busy with projects and homework but I think I will survive.

I hope to see everyone soon!!!!!!

Flikr update

I have updated and added to my Flikr account,

You have to select it, copy and past it into your address bar.

Sorry I forgot to let you all know, all the black and white ones at the start are the ones for my class and I had to develop all of them myself in the creepy darkroom here at the school :D

Check it out!

WOAH! It's already March!!!!

I know, I know,

Long time no blog. I have been pretty busy lately with all these projects that I have to do for my classes. But I am now starting to find a little bit more time now that I am getting fewer and fewer projects because of Spring Break and the fact that finals are almost here.
Spring Break starts this weekend, Saturday to Sunday with no homework will be heaven! I don't really have any plans for it though, however I am still in the planning process. I do know that I am going snowboarding again with some friends at least one last time for the season, but other than that I don't really have plans. Who knows maybe I will just go snowboarding every day with a different group of people or something, that could be fun.

School has been going pretty good I guess. My large format photography class is for sure my favorite this semester. I am shooting with film and I have to develop it myself in the dark room and the 4X5 camera is a whole new realm for me to learn but it has been fun. As soon as I get more time I am going to upload the pictures that I have taken in that class to my Flikr account and I will put them on the other blog too. The other studio class that I have is 3D Design, that has been a more challenging class but it has been good. For one of the projects that I had to do in there was to make a 7X7X7 inch cube out of cardboard and put some kind of object into it that would hold the form of the box. I decided to use chewed gum. Luckily my friends all pitched in and helped me chew all the gum. It took a lot more gum to fill the cube than you think and I even put a smaller cube in the middle so I wouldn't go broke buying gum. But all that chewing did me good, I got a good reaction from the class, lots of "ewwwwwwws" and "Aww sick!" That was by far the best project I did in that class, in fact it was so good my professor wanted to put it on display in one of the cases outside of the classroom and I figured that I would let him, everyone that I talked to about it was surprised that it was mine and they all told me how sick it was, that could have been because it was slowly starting to fall apart in the case and was making a mess so I had to throw it away the other day so the case could be cleaned.

As for this summer I have yet again got a job with the Shakespeare festival and I will be doing the same thing that I did last year. Ushering. But it is a job and it is a pretty good job at that, nothing really bad to complain about and I did meet some awesome people because of the festival. This year the 3 Shakespeare plays are
-Merchant of Venice
and - Much Ado About Nothing.

well I am procrastinating some work so I really should get it done.
Till next time,

Hey all, long time no post.

I have been kinda busy lately with classes and homework all ready. I am only into week two of classes and I am busy, busy, busy. I have a big plate full this semester. 17.5 credits in fact. I am taking:
3D Design
Intro to Film
Large Format Photography
Art insights >:P
I like all my classes even though they have just started. I REALLY like my snowboarding class though. I don't have to go on any certain day of the week just when ever I go snowboarding I just have to let my professor know and I have to get a minimum of 20 hours. I actually just got back from a nice day of boarding. It was great! My two roommates Sean and Shay our friend Dillon and myself went up this morning and were up there all morning. The weather was cold and foggy but the fresh powder and the great runs made up for it by far. I already have 14 hours for my class and I am going next Sunday with a bunch of my friends from Arizona. I forgot to mention that with the class I had to get a season pass for the class but it was at a discounted price and I got it for about $100 cheaper than normal. I love it!

I'm going to go sit in the hot tub with the guys and some friends and relax the rest of the night, I have a long drive tomorrow. I have to go to Arizona for my friend Kaylyn's wedding. I am going down with Dillon and his girlfriend and we are going to stay at Kaylyn's house until Sunday when we are going to head back up here to Utah.

Until next time,

P.S. here are some pictures from today's board session.

Long time, lots of stuff going on.

I know, I know, it has been a long time since I updated and I haven't been up on it like I was last year but more homework this year.

Thanksgiving was lots of fun, I went to my dads house for Thanksgiving this year and we had a lot of food! we did a big breakfast of French toast and eggs and all that was followed by delicious food all through out the day!

I left good ol' Emery County and I get to wait one more week and I get to go back for the Christmas break. I can't wait to see everyone up there! It's going to be a nice visit and so good to see everyone and catch up!

I do have a bit of cool news though! My friend Kurts brother is getting married in a few months and his original photographer that they lines up to take the engagement pictures flaked out on them and so they asked me to do it for them and I get to do that on Friday! It's really exciting and still more good news! My friend Kaylyn is engaged to my friend Kurt and they have also asked me to take their engagement pictures AND wedding pictures. I'm going down to Mesa for new years to take the engagement and spring break I get to take the wedding pictures and hopefully I can make my name known here in Cedar and take more pictures for other peoples weddings and make some money!

That is all for now, I need to go study for finals next week.
