I’m taking part in a digital scrapbooking event, in which we’re anonymous. Well, I wrote some journaling that I have to share, so I’m ruining it, but I don’t care!!
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a teacher. Specifically, a kindergarten teacher. After I had kids, my mind changed. If I have problems dealing with my kids’ buttholish behavior, how can I deal with someone else’s kids? So, that dream, while not completely dead, was slowly put away, and new dreams took that place. The dream of a new house. The dream of owning something completely ours that I can make changes to. But there’s one dream bigger. One that was started when I was handed my first camera that used real film. That dream is to visit Greece and such places, taking pictures. The chance to capture first smiles of babies. The chance to watch that step from being girlfriend and boyfriend to engaged and then to marriage. To follow that life, in photographs.
We took the first step in February of 2010, with the purchase of my first EVER DSLR. I was scared of regular SLRs, so finding a really good DSLR has been my dream. Catching it on sale was almost as if the Fates were talling me “You can be follow that dream now!” So, I’m doing that! I’m even looking into the cost of classes at the local colleges. I’m
scared, but I’m also excited. Maybe, just maybe this will be a dream I don’t have to push to the side, like so many have been thus far.
I’m loving what I wrote, though I see I spelled “telling” as “talling”. Oh well, I don’t care!
Now it’s time for me to get on with the packing, as we leave in less than 24 hours!!
