Alooooha!

 
So much has been going on since I got back from Europe! I guess one thing this trip has proven to me is that I truly am a busy person (I always thought I was lazy). The lofty goals I had of editing Dan and Ioana's reception photos as I've done with other installations have proven too high, as I've been way to busy to get myself situated to do so. I have edited a few, but have had to upload the rest as is, not even having been able to adjust the exposure for some of them. 


The good news is that in this latest update on things from my end of the spectrum, you have for yourselves a ton more pix to view. I would like to ask an enormous favor of everyone: please comment on individual photos! I probably won't have time to put many captions on each, or even creative titles, but I'm not sure if everyone realizes that the most helpful thing to me is if you let me know what you think of the pictures. I also have often written information in many pictures that you can't see when just the title is showing.


On my journey toward fulfilling certain career goals, photography and graphic design are important, and therefore I'd love to throw out there that, after considering advice from many of you that I try professional photography, I've decided to go for it. So if anyone has any helpful pointers, I'm all ears and appreciate any and all critique on my photographic and editing ski-zills. 


That being said, here's some new enlightenment into some recent developments, some good, though most indirectly.


The return home has been refreshing, as I'm working and living much as I always have, but with a brighter perspective on things since my trip. I believe that, even though the goals I set for myself in journeying out to Europe were far from the romanticized "traveler-heading-through-perils-in-exotic-places-and-finding-enlightenment-via-some-monk-on-a-hillside," I still went out there hoping to learn more about what my vocation is, and preferably get somewhere with it. Upon getting back, with the big curly question mark asking what I'm to do from now still being largely unanswered, I have found quite a lot of, I guess, not to sound cheesy, "peace" in the knowledge that I, like everyone else, need to just trudge on through, doing what I can as I travel towards Heaven, my true home. Thanks be to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, much of the anxiety os gone and I feel as though I'm ready to continue with my career goals (and paying back my enormous debt :) without worry, which has been a thorn in my side for some time. 

 
Also worthy to mention and perhaps the thing for which I'm most grateful, my chronic back problem is getting better as I see a PT and am scheduled, upon the Honorable Dr.-In-Training Kevin Brian Sullivan's recommendation, to see a Doctor of Osteopathy soon in the hopes of the root of the problem finally being pulled out. Still got a long way to go with it, but I'm getting fit and feeling healthy, and am having some success in friendly relationships (minus those involving crazy roommates, which is another story)


One significant concern is the fact that I will not, unfortunately and with a very heavy heart, be able to attend the graduation from special forces training on the 12th for my dear brother Michael, of whom I'm inexpressibly proud. I regret highly not being able to share with you this pinnacle day so far in your life brotha! I'll be there in spirit, however, and again, am so proud of you!


I hope all is going well with all of you guys, and I continue to pray for you all. Without further ado, I present to you some pictures of times recent. Enjoy, and please comment on any pics you see and like!

God bless!
