It’s Monday and I am semi-motivated!

In the office doing ZERO work. well that is a little lie, I am on Facebook adding friends and adding to my Flickr page.

Having a thought about a change in career. I need to get my act together.  I have had a good run and had fun & stress with life. Now I am ready to settle and get a real job. Either Offshore or find what area I want to specialize in or (which I think is the direction i want to go in) join the police! I think the police are better suited for me. Scared I fail..

Strange Feelings

Been a strange day, I woke refreshed and ready for the week. Jemma gave me a lift down to work, she was off for the Aberdeen holiday but I had to work. Sat and read my book for 45miniets before work and I think that is were it went down hill.
I don’t read that much, I enjoy it but find very little books I enjoy. Some one recommends a book by Don Mcullen. He is war photographer covering the likes of the Vietnam War,
Berlin wall and many struggles in Africa

.
These books have an affect on me. They are very contractual and uncensored. The descriptions of death and horrible situation take my mind in to a dark and scary place.After starting work at Starbucks my position was on the bar which is good because this is my strong area. I love the fastness and the work flow. All was going good until my supervisor started criticising my coffee skills. Now come on so what if the caramel drizzles has seeped in to the coffee. STOP BEING SO ANAL AND GET A LIFE!! I normally let these thing slides and think these people take thing to seriously. Well it didn’t and I was pissed which led me to spilling a whole jug of milk on the floor and on myself. Doesn’t help there’s only two staff on and other staff wasting time in the office. Then customers started pickling up the wrong drinks, even after I told them what it is. I see how you can get mixed up with a caramel macchiato and a latte, the do sound the same!! Tits.
Then the relief staff came on till. This person who will remain nameless is an idiot.  She worked for another coffee company for three years and then joined SB. She has been there a month longer than me. She takes the coffee order but does not pass the order to me. So I have 6 customers and no drink orders. I mean come on. Then she is like “woops, not got my brain switched on today”. YOU NEVER HAVE YOUR BRAIN SWITCHED ON!!! It was like this all day. Jemma picked me up and then started to have a go at me for not spending time with my so called friends, which I want nothing to do with. She had a right go at me for not socialising, don’t want to, can’t be arsed which than.
Gave 2ky a txt to see if he is heading out, which he was. Love going out with these guys. So laid back and are care free. Had a great night. They had been out at for diner for a friends birthday and I was meeting them at Tonik. 15 of them all came out of Tonik on space hoppers. Never seen any thing like it. Here are 15 20 something people bounding down union street on space hoppers. Love it

Town was good. 
 
Being out with 2ky, Robin a Blair really cheered me up.

 

 

 

Had a great chat with Blair and he really wants to help start the nightclub photography. Really pushing me to do it and I really want to. A lot of hard work is needed from both our ends. Fingers crossed. Any way, time for bed. Been a long long day.

I love it when I get the spontainious and go and photograph. Recently I have been too lazy to do any thing. I cant be arsed with the gym or photographing, I want to but the bad side of my mind is taking control…

I took these tonight, Made me feel better but still lazy 🙂

I love it when you have a whole night planned and some thing happens and then you have nothing planned.

Got home after work last night and discovered my prints did not arrive, so my plan of getting them Mounted, enveloped was thrown out the window. Instead I took a walk down to the gym and had a little work out followed by a walk home with a beautiful sun set

(Photos to follow)

I hate PC’s I really HATE PC’s. My PC is giving me trouble. it is more that fast enough to Run, Photoshop CS3, Lightroom & Other programs at the same time but it keeps cutting out.

Hate it…..

Another hot day today, I am spending the day in shorts. I really hope it is sunny next week cause I will no longer be working and have TWO car shoots (Any one with advice on photographing cars out side would be much appreciated). cheers

Right better get back to work

Stuck in the the office and Aberdeen is the hottest city in the UK….

I have now changed in to shorts and look like a twat 🙂

Heading home soon to start mounting all the photos from the weekend. The company who I get the prints done have let me down a lot recently and have compensated me but it has been a struggle. a total of two hours over 4 days on the phone. 6-mails and still unhappy with the prints.

The photos that arrive today will be judged and if I am unhappy I will be returning to my original printers. Quality over comes price.

I have to send away one of my studio lights after some silly girl decided to walk straight in to it. Fell over and now all the buttons are pushed in and no power to the unit. The thing that pissed me the most is she didn’t even apologise. That REALLY GETS ON MY TIT……

My Lazy day (Not)

For the last couple of weeks now I have been fairly busy so I decided today I am going to do nothing.

I had planed to go to the gym, Work on some photos and then spend the day watching TV, movies and playing the computer..

I got as far as Gym and Photos when my work called. They were short staffed and needed help.

So that was my day, stuck in the office doing work (or so I thought!!!).  I sat at my desk and did the mail and then had to get lunch and then head out to collect & set up equipment. All this before 4pm cause I had Jemmas car and she was at a course at the university.

My body was going on over time, I had to get every thing  done. Why is it when you are in a rush you get every traffic light, not to mention when I went to collect the first lot of equipment all the wires were tangled. I don’t understand these DJ’s, they get paid £££ an hour but they can’t clean up after them self’s. Lazy fuckers….

After running around, sweating like a bitch (sorry gross I know) and breaking a few speed limits I got finished.

Headed over to the university to pick up Jemma when she called to say she got a lift home with a friend. I was not very happy and in not a very good mood when I got back the the house.

Manage to get an hours worth of TV in before every one came in to the room and started talking so I missed the last 10minutes of my program. Really wish I had my own space. I really miss just being me and my thoughts. Oh well one day.

Any way I have to head, Jemma complains that I don’t spend any time with her.

After 10 years of being our neighbours and neighbours my mother childminding their 2 kids they have finally decided to leave for pastures new.

My mum and dad love holding parties and it has been a very long time since the last. They go all-out, So much food and drink. We were lucky to have great weather as well.

I was meant to be photographing our neighbours the Olgavies as a leaving present and while I was doing that all their & our friends was to come round to our house. Well they forgot about the photo session and my mother was worried that she would notice 10 cars parked outside our house. Lucky for us she is Blonde (no offence to blondes).

Well they pop round because we told them we would cook them dinner. I have never seen some one cry so much, for two hours that is all she did. We I think I would be a little emotional if 20 of my best friends came to say good bye.

Well the party kicked off. The food was eaten and the drink was drank. I got a little drunk myself but there is nothing better that chilling outside in the sun with good food and chilled drink with great chat. I also loved sitting with my camera with no hassle of having to photograph, just click when I want and that is what I did.

Some photos below.

I love clouds, I remember when I was younger just lying in a daze just looking at clouds.

Hmm bring back those days.

 

 So I did, I set up my camera, Pointed to the sky and chilled for a couple of hours.

Below is what I finished up with.

(These have had only the basic of Photoshop)

Love the Rainbow colours around the lining of the cloud.
