train time

today i rode the train from tacoma to eugene. actually, i had to get on the bus in portland, but my train was late so i missed the bus. so amtrack put me and some fellow train-riders in a taxi.
but, photoshop kept me busy while i was on the train. here is the result of my efforts...

i'm in tacoma, and i don't have a whole lot to do here. so for the past few hours i've been playing with photoshop actions and downloading some from the internet. this is my favorite so far. the rest are just color adjustments and such.
this is a photo of my brother, dad, grandpa, and me! taken at my grandpa's house, he lives on the beach.

"just pray about it"

about two weeks ago, two mormon boys came to my house. their names are matthew and taylor. we chatted about the trinity and christ's eternality, and i invited them back for an "interfaith discussion". and well, it was interesting. for all those who may be interested in watching a video on joseph smith's early life, please let me know, because they let us keep the dvd. basically, these mormon boys know nothing and couldn't answer any of my questions. they contradicted themselves multiple times, took verses from the bible out of context (which was expected). a few minutes after they showed us the video they decided that they were taking up too much of our time and so they left.
also, fun fact: mormon missionaries cannot go swimming, for safety purposes. but daniel, the non-elder who decided to tag along, was more than willing to float the river with us!


ok, so i know that i haven't "walked" yet, but i am done with college. this morning, at approximately 11:14am, i walked out of my art history final. as i walked down the hallway it slowly dawned on me exactly what just happened. ok, i'm actually still not sure about exactly is taking place. i'm done with college, i don't have a complete understanding of the meaning of that statement, but i like how it sounds and i like that i don't know what comes next.
this is what a college graduate looks like:

tomorrow all of my family will come here and we will start a weekend of over-exaggerated celebrations. i'm looking forward to it.
