The enlightening photo class that never was

Well, we're 2 weeks into our photo class so far. I wish I could tell you I've learned something yet....but I can't. This week's class entailed of everyone setting the date and time on their cameras. Uh....yeah. One lady couldn't figure hers out...turns out she had set the language to Arabic or something.

Here is a sampling of some of the questions/statements made in class:
"What's a memory card again?"
"You mean I need to carry extra batteries with me?"
and my favorite...
"Do I have to turn my camera on to get to the menu?"

Next week, we are going to actually start taking pictures!! Gasp! Luckily Linda is taking it with me, and we can whisper and pretty much keep ourselves entertained. (Oh, and Linda, you were right...I BAWLED watching ER last night!!!)

Speaking of crying, I did a lot of that yesterday. Overall, I have a pretty sweet job. I love it. I never really have any cause to complain. But yesterday I pretty much got shat on. Combine that with the fact that I was tired, and apparently hormonal, I just lost it. I called Derrick to vent, and he wound up telling me something that upset me even more and I couldn't even talk, I had to hang up, hide in an empty room, and bawl my eyes out. Of course, then I had to answer call lights with bright red eyes and a red nose. Sexy. And after I cry, I get suuuuuper tired. So then I felt like crap the rest of the day, look like crap the rest of the day, and hear about how bad I look from my coworkers. If I worked on a crappy unit, I don't think I'd last very long!

On a happier note, we are going to Utah next week! This all happened soo fast! Derrick is going out to recruit for Kohl's and I get to tag along! We're going to the game, which happens to be Homecoming, and we'll get to see Derrick's dad, who we haven't seen since before he left on his mission with his wife. So, if you're in Provo/Salt Lake and you want to meet up, let me know!

Sorry you had SUCH a bad day.

Can I come in your suitcase? I'll pay the extra weight fee and the baggage charge!
