I can't get over how tired I am or how much standing in front of students for an entire day feels like the Dementors sucking my soul. It's not nearly as dramatic as that, I'm just beat is all. I was sick all weekend. My mom says that I'm an old woman and my best-good friend Scott says that it's just bad genetics. I don't know what it is, my brain just hurts.
The highlight of the weekend was my second photo shoot ever with the beautiful charmer Samantha. This girl is going to break some hearts when she gets older. I'm still playing with the pictures, to be honest it's all I want to do right now, but I'll post them as soon as I get the go ahead from her 'rents. In the meantime here's a little sampling because I want to share at least something: And because I had a rough day and I still can't see the bottom of my Crap-To-Do pile, I'm going t post a little survey I found on this website and thought I'd post here because, why not?
