Changed My Site Title

Because I Have Nothing Better to Do…Blogging My Boring Life

That was my old site title + tagline…I think. It’s only been like 2 minutes since I changed it and I can’t even remember it.

I was going to switch it to My Life in Poorly Written Text.

I wish I was more creative with words…hence this blog.

And then I realized that I was being really negative about it so My Life in Text it is! I’m going to change it again in the near future but for now, this will do.

I need to go to sleep. It’s 1:24AM and I work at 6AM.

Today marks one week that I walked the stage.  After I “walked”, I realized that this whole thing was just  a waste of time…and money!  I heard that there were some people who decided not to attend the ceremony.  Maybe they thought it would be a waste of time, too?  Or maybe it was just how awful the ceremony was.  The president of the school…I don’t know what was wrong with him. He could not articulate at all!  Mumble jumble…saying random shit.

I spent most of the sitting down time just on my phone, scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, looking at the constant updates and checking all the notifications I was receiving. I posted a selfie and captioned it “Just finished walking” and gained a ton of likes.

I’ve been constantly bombarded with the dreadful question, “What are you going to do next?”

What am I going to do next? What am I going to do now?

“I don’t know.”

And I think that is an okay answer to that question. It’d be great if I could actually give an answer to that question, but honestly, graduation came up really quickly. I knew that after I transferred, I was going to graduation in two years.  That two years went by so fast. I really wasn’t prepared. But for what? Real life? Supporting myself? My family?

“What type of photography are you going to do?”

None of that portraiture/wedding stuff, that’s for sure.  That’s what most people think of when you hear someone studying photography.  I don’t know how to explain to people what I’m planning to do with photography.

None of that overly processed landscape stuff, not that I’m saying it’s bad or anything, but I’m not interested in that either.

I’m going to photograph whatever the hell I want. That’s the end of that.


Okay, lame fail! I reread a few of my past entries and realized that tomorrow marks one week, not today. Dumbass.

I’ve been losing a lot of hair lately. I’m a bit worried. I always lose a lot of hair, but it’s always in the shower that I notice it. These days I find them tickling my arm or poking through my shirt.

And I have so much to do by the end of this week. I know I need to be in a constant movement, but I can’t help but stand idle.

I’m Back

Nearly a year later, I’m back…for now.

I searched my name in the Google search engine and this blog popped up.

leslievuewow. Kind of lame lol. Oh well, I’ll stick with it.

I’m almost done with school. This is the last week of instruction and next week are finals. I actually only have one, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be stressed out. I have my entire senior portfolio due by Friday, a photograph for the senior show due Tuesday (which I haven’t begun making my final edits), an 8 page paper due next Tuesday, and an actual final next Wednesday.

Then next Saturday is the big graduation ceremony followed by a BBQ. Can’t wait!

Getting Rid of Crap

I have about seven notebooks worth of school notes that I’m trying to type into Word so I can have a digital copy instead of these space-taking-up physical copies.  I know that I can just scan and convert to PDF, but I would much rather type everything up.  I’m currently typing up my nutrition notes.  Hopefully it can motivate me to go on a diet and actually exercise instead of wasting my summer playing Tsum Tsum.  My other notebooks are my photography notes which I really need to go through.

I have a list of subjects to review before school starts up again at the end of August.

  1. Contrast
  2. Histogram
  3. Curves/levels
  4. Black point
  5. White point

That’s all I have right now. I think I can get answers to what the hell those are in a photography book that I had to buy about seven years ago…in the very first photography course I had to take. It’s kind of sad that I still don’t really understand what all that crap does. Well, if I had to explain it in words, I wouldn’t be able to describe it.  But I can definitely see it. I’m in my senior year of school, by the way, majoring in photography of all subjects.

Anyway, I’m constantly trying to get rid of useless crap that I have lying around my bedroom.  It ranges from more notebooks, to beauty products that I never touch, to little decorative items, to clothes that are too big or too small for me. I hate having my room cluttered, especially when school is in session.  I usually end up making my bed a table and sleep out in the living room on an uncomfortable couch.

And I don’t know how to change the color of the text in the header. Oh well, I’ll figure it out later.
