Tonight is one of those nights where I would love to hide and play video games, but instead I am here updating my site. I have the night free because Mariah took Caira and went along with everyone to Mount Charleston in order to set up camp for the weekend.

I have the house to myself, my feet are up, and I judge the time right to write. So I type. On the whole I had a horrible day. I’m not a person to deride my employer in public, but I will say here and now that working for a family member and living in the same house with them doesn’t really make for an ideal situation. With a little luck I will land another permanent job soon – I’ve put my resume and portfolio out and about as much as I can for most of the retail, photographic, and warehousing jobs that I can find.

Please for the love of god someone hire me!


Moving on, I’ve gotten much better in the use of a flashgun. I have my first freelance work in a while lined up for Saturday night (birthday party in a club), and my business cards shipped for Las Vegas this morning.

I hope good work, word of mouth about it, and business cards to hand out will all spur on more work for me. Las Vegas is honestly an extremely cut-throat and supersaturated place for a photographer. Everyone is here to make it, and you’re either a help or a hindrance.

Finally, Caira. Caira is absolutely insane. Starkers. Mad. Lunatiked. Batshit crazy, to steal words from Mariah’s mouth, and I love her.

    Ah, Fenster, I feel bad that I haven’t kept up with your lives. You and Mariah look so happy together, and Caira is just breathtakingly beautiful. If I ever need a photographer for anything, I will fly you guys to Texas so you can come hang out with the Southern hermits.

    I am glad you are finally in the states and I hope everything is well with you. :)
