This is my favorite picture of Christmas so far. Charleah, my sister, loves big books so we told Adison, my brother, that he should get her a big book for Christmas. He thought it was a stupid idea, but we finally convinced him to get it. At first it was just going to be a random big book, but then we saw an anatomy big book. Did she like it? I think the picture says it all.

Last Paper

I just turned in the last paper of my college career.
It feels good.

Every Thursday

I work at 8am every weekday. I wake up at 7:20am. Never earlier, and usually later. (Never more than 5 minutes late for work). I hate being woken up earlier than I want to be woken up. I am not happy in the morning. I especially hate waking up 5-10 minutes before I have to get up. Of course I don't just think, "I should get up now." I think "I have 5 minutes left and I will get 5 more minutes of sleep."

However, every Thursday morning at 7:10am, the garbage truck empties our neighbors dumpster, which is very close to my bedroom window. I guess they don't know that someone in the apartment complex next to them has 10 more minutes of sleep left. Being quiet is not an option for them.

I guess I should be grateful that there are people who have "downright nasty occupations that make civilized life possible for the rest of us." (Mike Rowe, Dirty Jobs) But why can't they sleep in an extra ten minutes and let me sleep.

My New Camera

I got a Nikon D60 about a month ago. It is a digital SLR camera and I love it so far. I don't think I am very good yet, but as soon as I graduate I want to start practicing more. I will definitely do this as a hobby and maybe I'll be good enough some day to take professional photos. I love looking at photography blogs and I think I have to get a lot better, but I am willing to try. I am also supposed to get another lens for my birthday (in 6 days) if Chris remembers what I want.

Here are some pictures I have taken so far. They are okay.
