Hi, remember me?

I am...back. Sort of. I'm currently at the library, using the (currently slow) WiFi here, since we only have dial-up at home sue to our house being in the country. My mom cancelled that today since it's the incredible speed of 5k, and even Google's homepage takes around two minutes to load. Satellite internet is something ridiculously expensive, like $70 a month, and since it's wireless, there's a time delay with it. So right now I'm just on the Internet at Starbucks, library, the Rec Center on the Navy base my dad works at, or using 3G on my iPhone, although the latter method has its limits (i.e. typing can be time-consuming, there's a small screen, it takes longer than using a computer, no Flash support, etc.). Still, it's much better than nothing.

As you probably know, I'd like to get a photography job - having my own photography business is something I'd really like, as well as getting into conceptual photography, but right now I'm just trying to get any job, like at Starbucks.

By the way, if any of you use the iPhone/iPod Touch app, Instagram, my username on it is maximillianr
Of course, it still is whether you're on IG or not, but you get the idea.

Welcome back... Neat post. I'm not exactly sure how the title fits in though?

Thanks, Riah. :)
I was thinking I was going to write a good deal more, but we were leaving the library, so I had to finish it without being able to say all I wanted to.

I hope you get a job soon! You should really look into getting a photography job! I know you already know this, and I'm not trying to rush you...but really Max, My dad's photography's business is Great, and I'm sure yours will be too! ;) I wish you all the luck with your business/job, rather its making mocha chocolate frappes at Starbucks or doing an exceptional job in the photography business!

Thanks, Mylena! I wish I had the skills and knowledge and equipment and everything to start a photography business...I hope I'll be able to do it soon, like some of my photographer friends have done and are doing.

Glad to see you back Maximillian.

Your backyard looks beautiful. Last month I spent 9 days hiking in the mountains of TN - someday I want to move there.

Thank you, Kala. 
Some of the scenery is pretty out here; I have yet to go hiking in the mountains though.
