I'm about to be assertive, scarey.
For a long time I've wanted to take more pictures. People are my favorite thing to shoot, but it is very hard for me to walk up to someone and say, 'hey, let me waste two hours of your life taking pictures!' Or say, 'I take pictures, let me do your family Christmas card picture.' But I'm very very bored right now, being unemployed, and desperately in need of a project. So I decided if there was anytime I was ever going to do this, there's no time like the present. So I'd like to develop my 'portfolio'. If you would like or even just be willing to have some portraits, family, child, couple, or anything in between done for any reason whatsoever please get a hold of me. You can comment back with your email and I'll give you my phone number. Obviously, it would be absolutely free and in return for your time and patience I would get you a disk with any/all great pictures for your posterity's benefit. Also after I've done some 'Christie' stuff if there's anything you want shot but been too afraid or poor to have someone do, we can try that too. I don't have studio lighting...yet... so all this will be outdoor, natural photography. Also if you're not in town but you just know of someone here who might be interested,anyone who you think would like pictures taken, feel free to send them my way and the same offer applies until further notice.
Wow, I feel so out there. It's very...uncomfortable.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Christie Part 1
(I'm really not angry in this pic, I just can NOT smile,
or even look normal without showing my teeth,
and I was trying to smile like barbie.)

I have three tips, in picture-list form.
Write instructions for lifting and the care of the contents on the outside of each box.
This will keep you from straining your back, turning the box upside down,
or throwing fragile items into your truck carelessly.
Always, Always, Always label each and every box with the room
it should go in your new house and a brief description of the specific contents.
But seriously, I'm all alone here now. (Oh no! Now the pervs reading my blog will know that! eek.) John is in Logan and started working today. He's hanging out with his friend Reed right now, and I spent most of my evening packing boxes.... Hmmmm, something's fishy about this situation. Ok, the truth is it's my fault I'm alone here packing boxes, because it was my idea to stay longer in Cedar City before I left my job and to give myself more time on the packing issue. I am however having second thoughts about my brilliance. I haven't been away from John for more than an evening or two since we've been married, and to be honest, I liked it that way. Sigh. I'm so whooped.
Independent and adventurous. You don't want much; just to break out of the guilded cage society has put you in and experience life to the fullest. Following orders isn't really one of your strong points, and you would rather live a life of poverty than being forced into something that you hate.
