It's a lot of experience, its nice to go over my notebook and see how much I have learned, and there is still so much to learn.

CRAZY WEEK

I've had a CRAZY week.

Monday I had school,
Tuesday I had work, and then I had to drive to the city,

AND I GOT IN A BAD CAR CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 lanes, 50mph, i'm in the left. it starts to snow, i am very aware of it. the snow starts drifting from the left side of the road, and so i didn't want to accidently go into it, so I move my week 2 inches to the right.

IMMEDIATELY I start to swerve across the middle lane and i could not control the car, the only thing I could thing of was "omg i am the cause of a huge car pile up!!!!" And I was on speaker phone with my sister amber, and she wouldn't stop talking. I smacked into what I thought at the time was a semi truck, but it was actually a tow truck. after hitting it from the front right of the car, i began to bounce off and swerve more and even worse. My car hit the truck with the right back near my gas tank, and flew back across the middle lane and the back of the car slammed into the cement wall.

I was COMPLETELY 100% alright, I couldn't believe it that nobody got hurt.

Anyways here is pictures of the damage. The driver of the tow truck was fine, and I have court an hour away in Maywood, IL tuesday, which sucks.

And then I had another photo intern/assisting thing on Wednesday. It was for Arlington Park Horse Racing. they are doing a 30 something special insert in chicago social magazine, and 4-6 pages is a fashion editorial. we had to attach fishing wire to her dress and blow air under her dress while she lept with binoculars. she had the riding hats in some shots, the whips, the straps. It was great, and the model was awesome! Interning is stressful tho it's fun to meet everyone. David is a hard worker and I am learning a lot, and I have to remember things ONCE and try and do it as quickly as possible. I have to do a lot of writing in my notepad. He can be hard at sometimes, but you know what? I remember things! Its hard because I don't know a lot of the equipment names, so when he says them I have to try and think of what it even is and find it. It's great experience and I am with good company

Oh and I found a great place to shoot outside today, its getting warmer, so I will have another shoot (with hailei most likely) at the end of the month.


And Scissor Sisters was on Friday, FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only dissapointments is that I didn't stay in front for the 2 hours of the opener, I would of had such a better time. And the people around me weren't that cool, and nobody seemed to like to dance a lot to them. I had a good time and got a lot of great photos and vids, not the best, but enough. I'll post those sometime.

Happy Birthday to me in 10 mins

Ok by the time I am done righting this it will be my birthday! (February 21st)

at 10:08pm in 1987, my mother pushed me out of her dialated vagina, so please think of that at the appropriate time. LOL!


Alright so I got something REAL special for my birthday,
AN ULCER ON MY CORNEA!!!!!! It hurt so bad! I got it from excessive contact use. I ALWAYS slept with mine in, and the last time, I hadn't taken them out for 2 months straight. I had to leave work early and go to my eye doctor at Lenscrafters. I got a perscrpition for the thjs little bottle of drops.

Other exciting news, I am dropping off my high-res CD at Elite Chicago tomorrow, on my birthday. Then I am going to hang out with lovely Megan B, the one who was in the wire hanger video for a second, The one that was screaming and I hit her thumb. She also let me use her apartment for my testshoot with Hailei.

ALSO!!!! I just got a message on myspace from a photographer, David Anthony. If you remember he gave me the Elite contact way back at Chicago fashion week. He invited me to be a 3rd assitant on a Baker's Shoe ad on Friday! How exciting. It doesn't pay but I will have the experience of working on a shoot with an art director and clients on set. How fucking awesome!!!

I'll tell you all how Elite liked the photos later.
