About Dropping a Lot of $$$

SOOOOO, I sold my d3000 today. And I just ordered the d7100 with 18-105mm lens from Amazon and I feel like I’m gonna vomit.

Although the vomiting feeling is really coming from eating avocado and boiled egg. NEVER AGAIN. That shit does nothing but give me cramps and lower-back pain. FOR HOURS. NEVER AGAIN.

Anyway, I’m slowly going from shocked at how much money I just dropped on this camera, to excited about it’s arrival on Wednesday. Abouts to go HAM on some new photography, though, oh shit!

I almost dished out some more $$$ for a Galaxy tab 2, but I keep telling myself I don’t NEED one. Cause I don’t…it’d be nice, but I really don’t NEED one.

What I do need, however, is more camera lenses and I may just go peruse Amazon’s Nikon selection.

Pete Campbell: Eternal Amusement

I need to stop listening to music cause it’s mentally cock-blocking me from writing my Industrial Post article. I’ve been telling myself this for about a month now. But I really need to do it asap cause the deadline is next week…bad me.

Today I recieved the biggest paycheck of my life. Which is laughable, really, compared to like, people who mean “real money” as it were. BUT IT WAS A FAT ONE, OKAY!? My exact reaction was “DAMN”.

I also managed to finally sell my camera and it will be paid and picked up tomorrow, which means I not only NEED to get a new one, but I need to make a decision: d7100 or d300s? Upon reading reviews, I think I’ve settled on the d7100. And I’ll probably get the 18-105mm lens for it. I may also get a fisheye lens, using the money from the d3000 sale. Either way, I need to make up the money I’m about to dish out on whatever I decide and I need to make it up via photography, somehow.

Also, was flipping through my newsfeed earlier today and I came across the 10 sneakpeak photos of Mad Men Season 6 opener and this one made me LOL:

Not only is Pete starting to look old, HE HAS 70S SIDEBURNS. LOLOLLL FOREVER OMG

Catching Up on Life Part I

I finally had a day off where I could do things for me. THANK GOD.

I woke up at 11, stared at my drapes, and decided it was time for new ones. So post gym time, I hit up Joann’s and bought fabric and whipped them up before I unlocked level 1000 of homemaker status via baking pumpkin cheesecake, mini pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin pudding. #wifey (Seriously though, reasons I’d make a good wife…)

I also went to Best Buy to play with their DSLR’s and gauge what I want to upgrade to. As I was talking to the camera girl, she mentioned that the Nikon d7100 will be released this Sunday and opened up the cabinet it was in to let me see the box. A few minutes later, she took it out, mounted it, and LET ME PLAY WITH IT. I WAS SO EXCITED, IF YOU CAN’T TELL.

Lowdown: it’s fucking amazing! It’s being sold as body only, although you can get it with the 18-105 mm lens. I WANT IT. I’m thinking of upgrading to this beast. I still need to sell my d3000 though.

I also got my new glasses from Coastal in the snail mail today and I love them!

And lastly, I just watched episode 1 of season 5 of Mad Men and IT WAS EXCELLENT. LOL at the following parts:

– At Don’s surprise party:
Roger: “Why don’t you sing like that?”
Jane: “Why don’t you look like him?”
– Peggy chillin’ with Joan’s baby and Peter walks in and asks “What’s that?”
– Peter telling his secretary to pencil in a fake meeting with Coca Cola at 6 AM on Staten Island, knowing that Roger will see it
– ROGER ACTUALLY GOING TO SAID FAKE MEETING LOLOLOLOL FOREVERRR
