My last post was about my mom, and this one is in a way. I’ve been somewhat out of it for the last few days, but hadn’t really noticed it until today.

Today, I have to start and/or finish editing the hundreds of photos that I’ve taken over the last few weeks, shoot more photos in The Grove, do some more editing, work on my homework for my classes tomorrow and edit more photos.
