Too late for lovers

Photo by me. From a shoot I did earlier in the year.

I'm heading to Nelson tomorrow. Gong on the ferry early morning, get in late morning to Picton, then take a bus to Nelson from Picton. Someone will pick me up from the bus stop.

My aunt is pretty bad at the moment. She's hanging by threads. I'm scared that she'll die when I'm there. I know that I have a funeral to go to over summer, it's just a matter of when.

Anyway, Just to let you know this will be the last of my posts for a while. :)

Stay with me

Another gorgeous shot by mediocre-matt.

In one week I will be heading off to Totaranui, the beautiful place I will be working all summer. Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you are my parents) there will be no internet or cell phone reception. I'm thinking of it as being a theraputic time, away from most technologies (I'm bringing my laptop and movies!) I'll be able to concentrate on other things.

I'm planning on running along the beach each day until I'm fit enough to run on the sand right along the beach (2km) without stopping. This is all in a master plan to get into the Air Force as a IO Psychologist, where they pay for me to get my Masters degree. All they need in return is to work year for year they paid for me at uni, plus one extra year. I'm thinking it would be a good place to find a nice man too. I'd have to do a 12 week training course which is all fitness and stuff, that everyone has to do... I'm not fit. I'm not a sporty kind of person. But it could be interesting.

Mum loves that I am thinking about applying for the air force. My mum, dad and brother all have their Private Pilots licences and my brother is doing aeronautical engineering with Air NZ, and I have always held that I would never do anything to do with Flying (because I am my own self thankyou very much *stomps foot*). But this sounds too good to be true. And it probably is. They only have about 6 Psychologists working for them, so it will be hard to get in to.

Anyway, if I don't blog before I go into the wilderness, I hope everyone has a good November, and a Merry Christmas. Hopefully I will be able to blog, but who knows at the moment?

Love xx

How good is 500 Days of Summer? It's so beautifully crafted, and every shot looks like a beautiful photograph.

Summer: I woke up one morning and I just knew.
Tom: Knew what?
Summer: What I was never sure of with you.

"Most days of the year are unremarkable. They begin, and they end, with no lasting memories made in between. Most days have no impact on the course of a life. May 23rd was a Wednesday."

I love those movies that are so real, but make you think... what if you did talk to that guy in the coffee shop briefly?

You Again

These beautiful images are from mediocre-matt on DeviantART. He seems to have such an eye for taking beautiful photos with gorgeous lighting. I love this. Many of his photos are beauty shots. They make me happy.

In other news, I bought Frankie Magazine's "The Photo Album" Issue - it's so inspirational and has some really gorgeous shots. Makes me want to go take photos right now, but I have to study for finals.
