So sometimes I like to drive down to Orem for work/school instead of taking the bus. I think the parking passes are ridiculously overpriced, so whenever I do drive to the school I generally always park in the paid visitor's lot located conveniently outside my office. Well today I forgot to ask my boss for a validation, and was therefore in a bit of a predicament when it came time to leave and realized I would actually have to pay to get out. I could either 1) Pay a whole $20 (plus another $2.50 for the atm fee to even get the cash) and leave at 5 pm when I finished my class, or 2) wait it out until the parking attendant goes home at 10:30 pm and try to get out of the lot when the bar is up. So what did I decide to do? Yep...wait. I was actually able to get a lot of homework done that I probably would have put off all weekend, so I guess it could be looked at as a good thing. I've been periodically taking sneaky looks out the doors to see if the gate has been up and it finally is, but I'm still nervous that the booth attendant is still in there and will try to make me pay if I leave, so I came back to my office and decided to kill a few minutes by writing this blog post. Wish me luck, and let's hope the last 5 hours have not been wasted in vain. I did listen to the Dave Ramsey show online and watched Serendipity, so it's been quite an enjoyable and educational evening.

Well, seeing as this is my last semester of school (yay!) I have been busy working an various projects for my classes. Here are a couple images from those projects. The first is for my senior project- I'm printing images from the film I shot in Europe- so far it's all been done in the darkroom- no computer, no photoshop. It's been an adjustment after working with photoshop so much to have to go back to the darkroom, but it has been great. Once I get the other images I've done scanned, I'll post them too. The second image is done with a process called cyanotype. I've been learning a lot about the old photo processes (before photoshop and photo paper you can go buy at the store :-)) I've loved this class this semester, and will also put the other images I've been working on up once I get them scanned.
