the start of something new: preparation

I'm done. Finished.

I'm back home in LA now, going back to SD in a few days to shoot a wedding, and then coming back here. I'll be helping a friend with invitation/std stuff, job-searching, and enjoying my new cat who could care less. I'm trying to play hard to get with her, but it doesn't seem to be working.

In the meantime, here are some photos from transition into "adulthood": packing, graduation, and afterward. This is just the preparation part (aka packing up my room and enjoying some last few bits of quality friend time).

Packing up my life:

Like my ghetto masking taping?

My new 50mm lens..pretty much purchased with my last paycheck for a while. You know, now that I'm an unemployed individual with a B.A. in Useless. :)

My $5 subscription to a year's worth of Real Simple. Can you believe it?

Some sketches.

Bare walls.

Wired Bistro:

The morning before my graduation, my friend melody and I went to one of our favorite breakfast spots in SD (not that we know many or anything): Wired Bistro. It's a cute little French cafe/restaurant that has bomb diggity tiramisu. BUT, they happened to run out that day. :(

Got some cheesecake instead. Good, but not as good as the tiramisu! I'm am inconsolable!

They're always featuring work from local artists here.

Coffee bags on the ceiling!

Left: me, Right: Mel

Stay tuned for part two: graduation!

Congratulations! I especially like the photo of your sketches. And a $5 subscription to Real Simple? Excellent. What's your secret?

It's a big transition, but you are right: God is faithful!

When I graduated two years ago and the parties were over and the realization that I had NO idea what was happening next hit me, I freaked out. I ran away to the beach for a day for some time to think and I thought a LOT about the story of Joseph and how awesome it was that he also had no idea what was happening next and was probably really worried at times about the course of events in his life, but somehow it all worked out for him, and in an even better way than he could have imagined :)
p.s. I'm enjoying my internship very much, thank you!

What a beautiful post about an exciting -- but totally scary -- time in life. I hope you find what you're looking for.

And by the way, your blog is fantastic! I will have to stop by again soon : )
