Big Day

It seems early to be starting school. Most years its not till early September But tomorrow is my first day. I feel as if i have had 1000 of these by now. No new clothes this year, same old shoes and still have the same backpack from high school but what is new is... well everything. I will be working for a new newspaper as the Director of Photography. there was a big freshman welcome today on campus that i shot and while out there with 1000 or so people i felt a little small and intimidated but as i started asking for Name, major, age, i found that most of the students were 18 and didn't know what they wanted to be and what they wanted to do. We are all in that same boat at some point in our lives. I don't think that its a bad time but i think that once you find out what you THINK you want to do that you should take some time and make sure. For myself it didn't just click one day BOOM...Photojournalist. I wanted to travel more then anything and i needed a way to help pay for it, so i figured that a camera was the best choice. Just like anyone else i wanted to take a nice looking picture. You never set out thinking, how can i make people look bad and make poor memories of a situation. Everyone has a sense for a nice photos. Back to it... 1.No one is cooler then you. Don't be overly confident but just know that to a degree we are all the same. Just do what you have to do. Use your words and you can own any situation. 2. Find what you want to do. Make sure it really is what you want to do and not some dream but then go for it. Things will start falling into place.

I don't know who will be reading this but i miss you all.
