Oh, the humanity!

Yeah, it's going to be a whiney one. You've been forewarned.

Further to my Facebook status, I feel like I've been trying to force square pegs into round holes lately. I'm trying to make something come from nothing. I am uninspired and exhausted.

Oh, wait, that's normal for a college senior who's been in school since August 2006?? Jesus, I must have been out of my mind when I signed up for this. No, not really. It's just one of those days.

It was a really full weekend, and I am spent. It was absolutely wonderful, but I think I'm getting too old for these run-til-you-drop weekends. I know, say it isn't so! Well, we do what we have to do until we don't have to anymore.

Still with me?

On the up side, I shot a bunch of photos with my new Canon Powershot, and they are absolute magic. I'll post a few here in a few minutes, after my rambling, of course.

Further to the lack of inspiration, I just can't seem to get any momentum going when it comes to creating. I blame this on the plethora of "photographers" out there making everything creative seem like it's a dime a dozen. Therefore, I will have to dig deeper to find something that hasn't been done. Or, at least done eighteen bazillion times.

I think that's enough whining for now. I have to post those pics I promised you, and I have to write a synopsis of the symposium I attended for class on Friday. Good times.

I'll leave you with a song, as well. One EskimO's "Amazing." It's the one that pulls at my heartstrings at the moment. I'll try to find a stream of it for ya. Oh, and here's a link of just that:

"Amazing" by One eskimO (scroll down to Track 11)

The Rearview Mirror. Sounds like some spooky book, but it's not. It's just a photo.

Table Rock. GET IT?? Table? Rock? Never mind.

B-b-b-b-b-braum's, Durant style. Not that you'd be able to tell if it was not in Durant but in some other town and I was just deceiving you.
