Just found out I was accepted to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Now I just need to get through this semester and then on to what will hopefully be more soul-satisfying courses. Until later …
Working on a long documentary piece that includes a lot of text and a lot of pictures is difficult. I didn’t really how much so until I started writing the story. I realized today that I still have a lot of holes.
It’s October 1 and I’m setting a goal for myself. A post and a picture a day. The picture won’t necessarily be taken the same day as the writing but it’ll be related to what I’m writing about. I’ve been extraordinarily busy
