Camera Noob Alert!

So a several years ago I was completely into the BJD hobby. Still am really, I have some of my dolls. Anyway. My parents saw how much I loved photography, especially of my dolls so they got me a DSLR. I really tried to do what I could, learning basics and all…

… and today when I went to take pictures of husband’s war gaming miniatures to sell it was apparent that I completely and utterly forgot everything I learned. I re-noobed myself.

The photos are good enough for sales pics, don’t get me wrong, but I’m supposed to be taking exceptionally clear pics with this thing. Part of it could be I don’t have the proper lens, but I think it’s way more user error.

Aaahhhh I need to correct this because I HAVE SHAMED MYSELF! SHAAAAAME!

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me, 2014 | by Jojo

So my husband and I had a court wedding more or less. We were broke and didn’t want to wait years and years especially with immigration on the table.

We wanted to do our own thing later on but I’m at the point where I’m not really in control of my life anymore, and his family gets SOOOOO fucking excited over us having a South Asian wedding I’m thinking what the hell and just do it since they REALLY want to see that? Especially when they talk about the sheer amount of gifts (read: money) that gets thrown at you which I’m not going to lie would put much needed financial stability into our lives like putting a down payment on a condo and such.

Part of me would feel honestly excited about it, being invited into such a cultural experience. I mean the whole community would be there for the event. The other part of me has a lot of questions. Just what would the family want to do? I know the MIL and her sister have talked about this before and they would just DIE of excitement to see me dressed as a traditional South Asian bride even with me being mayo whitey as hell. I think it’s a kind of “YAY SHE’S TOTALLY PART OF THE FAMILY NOW!”

As far as the ceremony goes though, neither husband nor I are Hindu. Would they do a blend of Western and South Asian ceremonies? How would that all be done? All I understand fully is that the family is really in charge of things.

It’s a lot to think about doing at once but I guess we can just put the green light on things and see what happens?

There’s something to be said about our pets. Still in a mess mentally I had to take a Xanax today which led me to have a well-needed nap. When I finally woke up, Naiya was at my feet and Isabella who usually hangs out around my pillow was cuddled right next to my stomach (I was on my side) She never does that.

Things may be completely shitty right now but at least I have my kitty buddies.

Heh. I posted on how I stress-eat garbage food last night, and today my body had a total revolt. I’ll be okay I think but damn. Sipping on water the rest of tonight and hopefully I can eat mild, bland foods tomorrow (with lots more water) and be back to my version of ‘normal’.
