a post about things

Has it been a month already? Good heavens! So how has everyone in the blogging world been? Good? Bad? I’ve been pretty dandy. Busy of course. Lots of things going on such as, college, moezart…oh wait, that’s it. Oh well, it seems like a lot more than just those two things! For college Im studying College Composition (basically CLEP’s version of English 101) and at PVCC I’m taking CPD 150. It’s a college success class. Oh, have I not told you that I am attending community college now? Yeah! Collegeplus isn’t working out for me so I decided to try community college. I like it a lot better!
You know how I graduated from Moezart about this time last year? And how I cried my eyes out because I was so sad it was over? Well….I am in the middle schooler’s play, HONK! The Musical! It’s super fantastical and I’m having so much fun!
Anyway, I’m trying to get into the habit of blogging once a week. About three weeks ago I told myself I should do this. As you can see, I haven’t kept my promise. :P
So this post is basically just a compilation of random photos from the past couple months.
A lot of these photos were taken with my iPhone 4S. It has slowly become my new favorite camera. I find myself reaching for it instead of my DSLR. I love the instant share-abilty and compactness of it. It fits in my pocket and goes everywhere with me. It’s definitely not replacing my DSLR for “professional” work, but for just a carrying-around camera, it’s fantastic!

(Taken with the Canon) This is what we woke up to one morning at our new cabin in Pinetop. By the end of the day, a lot of the snow had melted. (It is also my current blog header.)


Just went for a walk around the neighborhood. (Taken with my iPhone, edited in Photoshop)


Ive started running A/V at our church. I thought the light was so purty that morning. :) (Taken with iPhone, edited in Instagram)


So I got a Macro/Wide-Angle lens for my iPhone. The macro lens is CRAZY close and CRAZY good. haha (Taken with iPhone, edited with Instagram)


Met up with Christian down in Tempe for a little photography adventure. Christian uses a Nikon so I threw him behind bars. ;) (Taken with the Canon)

A tower in Tempe.


These are some of the middle schoolers I get to hang out with every Tuesday. Andrew (L) and Brett (R). I have adopted them as my children because they are awesome! (Taken with iPhone)

I’ll do another post talkin’ about how amazing the iPhone 4S’s camera is. It’s crazy good.

Have a good day!

Oh, Hey There.

Soooo, yeah. It’s been a long time hasn’t it? I really don’t know what to blog about. As usually, school has been sucking up most of my time. I spent the past month studying for a history test that I ultimately failed (again). I was one point away from passing too, which made the failure so much more painful. So now I have to wait six months to retake it. UGH.

A couple of weeks ago my family went up to Sunrise, AZ to see all the “fantastic fall colors!” When we got there, most of the leaves had fallen off. And the trees that did have leaves, were just yellow. No reds, oranges, just yellow. :/ I had even spent a ton of money at Tempe Camera on film and a Circular Polarizing Filter just for the occasion! Now all I have is a roll of undeveloped film sitting in the Contax. But the CP Filter is cool! I totes gotta make a blog post on that one! One of the best photography investments I’ve made, next to my 50mm!

What next? Oh, Halloween! Ummm, we carved a pumpkin. And a few trick or treaters stopped by. I think people were importing kids into our neighborhood. haha We had a lot of candy left over though, which is always good. It’s why I like Halloween. We really don’t have to go trick or treating because we buy a big bag of candy and only give away like, six bars or packs or whatever. Here is the pumpkin my sister and I made. Guess which side I did?

OH, I guess the most exciting thing to happen to me is……………………………………………………You probably are just gonna skip over all these dots just to see what is so “exciting” to bad! More DOTS!!!! …………………………………………………………….I got an iPhone! YAY! Im all hip now! Well not now-now, but in a-few-weeks-now! Our whole family was eligible for new phones and they only had two none-data phones in the store and I didn’t want them because it was an update of the previous phone I had and that phone was a piece of junk so I def didn’t want that so I ordered an iPhone 4S! Im super excited! :D

In a few weeks, you'll be all mine little iPhone-y. All mine.

So this post really has no rhythm or structure or order. This is just everything that came to my mind while typing.

Have a good day!

Matty :D
