Happy Monday!! Don’t mind me, I’ve just fallen off the blogging planet for the past few days! Life’s been hectic around here lately, and a migraine last night didn’t help 🙂 I’ve still been keeping up with my 48 Days reading, just haven’t gotten to type up my posts yet! I’ll do that ASAP. I know you’re just itching to see what’s next! But to tide you over, check out this statistic and fact…
“U.S. Department of Labor statistics state that 50% of the jobs we will have in the next 6 years have not yet been created.”
Thomas Edison made 10,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb, and when a reporter asked him how it felt to fail 10,000 times he responded with, “I didn’t fail 10,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 10,000 steps.”
Crazy, yet, inspiring.
Now, for my Photography 101 series, here are some topics I’ve come up with that might be helpful. If you think of something else, leave it in a comment and I’ll add it to my list!
-Making the change from Auto to Manual
-What do all these buttons mean?
-What kind of camera should I be using for a beginner dslr?
-What does ISO mean?
-What does Aperture and Depth of Field mean and is that how you make the backgrounds blurry?
-What’s the difference in a full frame and crop frame camera?
-What’s the best way to compose my photos?
-What does white balance mean and why do you keep yours set on Auto?
-Does the # of megapixels really matter?
-RAW vs. JPG…what does that even mean?
-How do you edit your photos? What programs are out there?
-Where have you bought most of your camera equipment? Can I get a good deal there too?
-When people talk about lenses and use words like, zoom, wide, telephoto, fixed, and prime, what are they talking about?
-How do you make your photos look pretty? #1 tip?
So, thoughts on these subjects?? Have you ever asked any of these questions?
I’ll be honest. REAL honest. I don’t remember the last time I went running. I guess the last time I blogged about it was the last time. And. It’s. Killing. Me. I’m been swamped lately, mentally and emotionally and haven’t been putting myself first. But you know what? It’s a new week, and the sun is out, so do it-to it I say. If I don’t go for another mind-clearing run tonight I just might spontaneously combust. Not to mention, I have a half marathon coming up in 12 weeks and would still like to sub-2! Oh yea, and that whole marathon thing in December. I’m pretending like I’m still in great shape and can pick right up with my training…except I’m not…and I’m already 2 or 3 days behind schedule. Geeze Louise.
And now for the most glorius thing I’ve seen all day. I promise it will MAKE your Monday as well.
You’ve probably learned by now that my husband and I are die-hard Breaking Bad fans. And I miiiiight have a strange, bizarre thing for Jesse Pinkman. So this morning as I was catching up on all my senseless entertainment gossip, I came across this…
That’s right, Aaron Paul, aka Jesse Pinkman, was once on The Price Is Right!
And with that, have a great day!!
Do you watch Breaking Bad? What’s the longest “break” you’ve taken from your routine workouts? Did any of those photography topics tickle your fancy? Are you ready for The Bachelorette tonight?!
