My First Roll of Film

Well, I did it. I bought a film camera. Bought some film. And then shot the whole roll.

And I literally know nothing about film. I have no intention of doing anything professional with this skill, obviously. But I really wanted to learn more about cameras and film developing. And to keep a record of where this actually goes, I’m putting some of those photos here, on the blog. For the five people that actually read my blog.

These are really the only ones I liked from this roll. And they aren’t great, but oh well. First time. Lesson learned. Hopefully the next ones turn out better.

Larsen Post, Vol. 3

THRICE! Three times I’ve written in a series now and it’s going well, don’t you think?

TYLER: Will be starting his LAST internship of his LAST semester in his LAST year of Grad School!!!!!!!! WHAAAAAAA?!?!?!? I can hear the bells! Don’t you hear ‘em chime? I really don’t know that song well enough to quote it, but that’s basically how it goes, I think. I am exhausted of this school phase so I can’t even imagine what he feels, but he’s making it happen and I sure am proud. Let’s go get that middle-class money, boo! He’s also super good at being the fun parent since all I can muster is sitting on the couch all day. And Alice loves it so so SO much.

ALICE: “Daddy play! Daddy play! Daddy home! Daddy home!” All the live long day. She’s starting to put more words together into actual sentences which is basically the most adorable thing since the last adorable thing she figured out how to do. She loves to spin and dance and run. She loves Elmo even though she’s never seen a single episode of Sesame Street. She had a little bout of not eating anything that wasn’t ‘rice’ or ‘noodles’ or ‘oatmeal’ (and she probably will again) but I think she’s over it for now. She loves to play with play doh and color. She also loves counting and pointing out any letters she sees. And she likes to ‘play letters’ when we have our computers out, which means we open a word document and let her type all over it. She likes snow, most days, eating it and playing in it. She also says ‘love you’ back to us and asks for hugs regularly. And she probably does a hundred other cute things that I can’t remember right now.

ADRI: Is trying her best to finish and launch a writing course for business owners but it is slooow going. Hopefully it’ll be done soon. I am also very pregnant—27 weeks wishing it was 37, or 40. The baby moves a lot which is fun and only sometimes annoying. And I wish it was summer so I could be warm and we can play outside…someday.

Holiday Reading List for Every Reader

Does anyone’s reading spot ever look this idyllic? Mine certainly doesn’t. But here’s a list of books to cozy up with over the holidays. Even though your cozy may look like a floor covered in blankets, treats and strewn decorations and sound more like children screeching than Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney duetting. Happy holiday reading!
