I’m thinking a new camera is going to be the first big purchase, possibly an external audio source for current video camera, but I need decent video camera and a decent still camera. I’ve been trying to do the day by day picture thing, but I have to borrow my roomates camera… I don’t need an SLR or anything, just something I can carry around and use to take a daily picture of my development. One of those netbooks with the webcams in them so I can broadcast from the road is probably the second big thing, and then I’ve been thinking about buying my first “I-Product”, an Ipod touch or whatever the best for blogger/skype is… maybe a droid… any advice? I don’t really care for cell phone plans etc but I’m tired of not being able to check the internet wherever I want, interesting stuff happens to me all the time and I’m not getting the chance to share it with you guys. I think a new set of cameras, a netbook and a little internet gadget thing will really make my posting rate go up exponentially, I’m hardly ever home so I hardly ever post, I have a pretty hefty editing computer that needs another stick of 2gig DDR2 ram to run Premiere CS4 so that will be my very next purchase. This month is one of those awesome months with 3 paychecks, I’m paying off some small debts and bills, and then I’ll be able to afford some stuff to really get my internet communication going.
I think for the first time in my life, I’m facing the potential to be happy. I have a pretty decent job, making decent money and don’t forsee any potholes in the future. As you can tell from the first paragraph, I’ve been lusting after possessions much like the other billions of people in the work force. I want things, because I go through 8 hours of noise most days so I can have nice things and reach my goals. At least I don’t want anything terribly ridiculous like spinning rims or Fabergé eggs. One thing that has improved is my eating habits, I can afford decent fruits and veggies, good juices and teas and I even made a lasagna the other day after buying some much needed spices and cheeses. After I have all this settled, after all the *required* things have been purchased (tech/food/new clothes) I’ll start paying for things like Laser Hair Removal and saving up for my transition. My life feels kinda awesome right now… but unfortunately I need to hop in the shower, put on a fresh, clean didee and head off to work! Much love from your little girl, and more stuff soon, I have to run, cash rules everything around me!
