Washing off the mess

Didnt get anything done this morning cause i helped out Danny getting the starter in his volvo replaced, what a mess that was. I didnt even get to eat breakfast this morning. We got it done though, took about an hour and a half and i had to get right to work with just getting the wires hooked up still left to do. Then what do i find out when i get home? The starter is bad, hahahahahahahaha….ahhh not funny. So all that work pretty much for nothing. Got all dirty for nothin.

So i started my new job today. Yeah.

But before i made it to that, i had to take Danny to the doctors to get his wisdom teeth out, what a wonderful hour and a half wait that was. Hes going to hate me so much but i took a picture of him and you all get to laugh at said picture.

My face, its numbbbbbb

Yeah, he was a wonderful kid to babysit this afternoon, haha.

So anyway, started my job today, salesman for Trugreen. All the way out in Moon township. Well i cant really say all the way out there, 15 minute drive on a good day. Decent drive anyway. Nothing but training today, probably wont be out going door to door till Wednesday at the earliest. But its gonna be interesting, nice to get out doors at least. I got a little too dressed up today as i found out, but hey its better to dress up to much than be under dressed. So here, this is what i wore today:

Classy

Ill have a shirt to wear as a uniform, then khaki dress pants to go with it, i dont have any though, gotta get some in the morning. But yeah, never gonna have to wear a tie, ah well.

Well me and danny basically got kicked out of the house today cause Natalie had a shoot so while they were getting ready we decided to head out and do some stuff. Got some Denny’s then headed out to Robinson Mall. Straight for Sams Club we picked up some stuff for Danny to eat since hes getting his wisdom teeth out tomorrow. Pudding, applesauce, stuff like that. Of course we had to test out the couches, we always do.

Then we headed to Danny’s work and played some ping-pong for an hour, i only won one game and Danny beat me 4 but its fun.

Its still early yet…only 2:30, so who knows what else ill do today.

Pastrami on wheat

Yeah, i had a fairly laid back day so i dont have much for a picture of the day, just my half eaten sandwhich. Pastrami on wheat, cant go wrong. Pepperjack cheese, spicy brown mustard, a little mayo, a little lettuce, and some bread and butter pickles.

Otherwise drove out around on the look out for For Rent signs, only found 2 but i was out long. Still up in the air on finding a month to month for a short time, or getting into a 6 or 12 month lease. Some guys i know are going to be getting a place at the end of July and its tempting to get in with them on that or find a studio apartment by myself. I don’t know what i would be more comfortable doing.

And its not a matter of trusting those guys to get the rent and all that, they all have good jobs and their good guys, but their all straight up geeks, i mean Paul owns a comic book store. Its a matter of the fact that i will be living with 3 other guys and we all share a lot of common interests so when i need to buckle down and get some work done am i gonna get too distracted? I dont know. What about having girls over? Will it get awkward? Who knows.

Oh yeah thats what else i did today, played a little D&D with those 3 said guys, i took a picture cause Claire was asking what i was up to. I caught Sean to the left there, Caitlin at a bad moment, and Scott completely sucked into whatever hes doing but yeah, Sean and Scott are two of the guys im looking into a place with.

D&D

Shana checking out the prints

Food and freinds

Tonight was a good night, my friend Brian Kaldorf had an exhibit showing off the completion of his newest project, a photo recreation of Alice in Wonderland. The work can be seen at http://welcometomywonderland.com/ It took him somewhere around a year to complete and i was very much impressed. On top of the fantastic work i got to see plenty of friends whom i haven’t seen in about 8 months since i was last living here in Pittsburgh. It was a nice night to sit around and chat about what was going on in our lives and talk about photography in general, as we usually do.

Sipping on the Magic Hat

Alright everybody, this is my first post on here.

I just moved myself back to Pittsburgh since i had been in NY for the past 8 months. Finally got myself moving, packed up and onward i went. I’m staying at my buddy Danny’s house for a short time until i can get myself moved into my own place, and as you can see in the picture i’ve been enjoying myself, being back and all.

Gonna be starting a job on monday, working sales for Trugreen. Nothing amazing but it’ll be a paycheck, and we all know how important those are. Managed to get that job quite fast too, i only just got back to PA on saturday, and had my first interview with them on tuesday. Not to shabby if i say so myself. So while i have that i can start getting weddings booked and and get a few portraits shoots in here and there. Didn’t do a lot of shooting while i was up in NY, severe lack of good models. Another reason im happy to be back in the Burgh.

Anyway, im going to really step up on keeping my camera with me when i can and use wordpress to get a picture a day kind of thing going on. Hopefully something a little more interesting that me bumming around drinking Magic Hat, haha.
