Amazing High Speed Photography + Life Lately

Hi everyone! How is your weekend so far?

I went to my school’s photography workshop this evening, where we spent two hours crouched in front of a tank of water, snapping photos of random things being dropped inside. Photography Club is tons of fun. I like it almost as much as Crafts for Charity, which I am super excited about as well 🙂 In the photography lesson, I learned so many new words.

Aside: getting into a new field always seems to involve learning a new “language”! While my kinesiology classmates and I could converse using words like “supination”, “gastrocnemius”, and “plantarflexion” – I need to switch to Bio language when discussing “snRNPs” and osmoregulators” with my bio study group. Now I’m learning a new language with photography, and it’s great! 🙂

Thankfully my camera is working now. The memory card was full a couple days ago, but it was all fixed by Wednesday. I used my iPhone for pics on those two days. Turns out I just had to format my memory card on the camera.

At Photo Club, it was fun to see my friends, including the lovely Maddy from the Schulich Leaders Dinner earlier this year. 🙂

Random Thoughts

I finally, finally bought a new binder today. Seems like the most trivial thing in the world, but I really needed one since the old one was ripped and torn and practically fell apart. I ended up breaking it, literally, and tossing the pieces in the garbage. Thank goodness I new have a shiny new binder – it motivates me to study. 🙂 Kind of.

The Goosebumps movie, guys. It’s out.

It’s real.

The real movie. For Goosebumps.

Seline and I have been waiting for this for, without exaggerating, a decade. I can’t believe a movie was actually made from these old 90’s books! I thought we were the only people who read them. And don’t even get me started on Fear Street. We spent half of our trip to Paris playing 20 Questions with Fear Street CHARACTERS. Insane.

It’s actually pretty embarrassing to share online that I am, at this age, R.L. Stine’s biggest fan. My sister and I have read every single book in the series about 87 times each and our obsession started in when I was in grade two. We’re still in love with the series. They just don’t get old! This is almost as embarrassing as last year’s addiction to National Treasure. Oh my goodness. Speaking of that movie, I can’t wait to watch it when I go back to BC this winter! Less than two months to go…

Seline, if you’re reading this, we’re gonna go to theatres to see this. I don’t care if I hate movies and crowded theatres and I don’t care if you think books are better than movies – we need to watch this together! 😀

Have you ever read a Goosebumps novel? How about the Fear Street series by RL Stine?

This girl is such an inspiration. I love her cheerfulness and enthusiasm 🙂 If I weren’t so addicted to yoga, I’d be trying out her fun moves at home.

Halloween! I want some of this pumpkin oatmeal. Doesn’t it look cute with the little jack-o-lantern face? My oats tomorrow are definitely going to look like this – with chocolate chips instead of whatever they used here 😉

Speaking of pumpkin oatmeal, did you see the 100% from-scratch pumpkin pie my roomies and I baked the other day? If you haven’t, be sure to check out the recipe HERE.

I’m tired now and it’s time for bed. Can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow – what should I make? 🙂

Good night!
