Double Post--Delish Dish

In honor of Bad Movie Night [featuring THEM! and TOM LUNDY], the one I ended up missing out on because I feel asleep, I decided to make some lasagna. I also decided to put my digital camera's focus to the test (seeing as how I was having issues earlier...) and take some shots of some the the yummy ingredients that I added to my lasagna.


SHROOMS! :)


Simmering with some fresh oregano and basil



Sarah and I also made the ultimate dessert:
Chocolate Chip cookies with a twist--
add white chocolate & dark chocolate and walnuts.
Oh! and a few ingredients that will remain a secret!

Photo.shoot. Understanding Camera Shots

A course I am taking this quarter is all about using a camera--whether its a home video camera, camera phone, digital camera, or movie camera there are specifics that overlap in the logistics of capturing photos and images.


For one of my first assignments, I decided to take some photos of my sister and her room. I didnt realize how much can actually be achieved just using my old digital camera!


The concept: "Dollhouse"


Medium shot


Tilt/Angle shot


Extreme close-up



I designed Bo's Hair, I love the combo of light lavendar with hot pink


Wide shot/Establishing Shot
"In Her Room"

Lovely Night at The Loft






A good friend of mine played at The Loft tonight. The Loft was hosting it's quarterly open mic night and Ali was the first to perform at 8:30. She opened with a few covers, but amazed the audience with her killer original song she wrote herself!

Too bad my camera had a mind of its own and would not focus on anything :( my only pictures are blurry.

BEACH







Gorgeous weather, amazing day, lovely sisters.


Sometimes some days just happen to surpass all odds of being a waste of twenty-four hours by becoming a perfect day. Yesterday, was one of those days. I am not just talking about the just the weather, but that all the events in the day, help you to realize something or tell you something amazing. As if everything that happened was supposed to happen for a reason and on that day. I had a wonderful time spending time with my sisters and I am glad that they were able to make the day become perfect!

Week 1: Clutter Assignment




My space is a mess already!





For a my Documentary and Film Studies class, the class was assigned homework--our assignment is to answer in anyway, shape or form "what is your space?" The best way to discribe my space would be places I find myself spending a lot of time in:

1. In front of the mirror

2. In my car.

NYE 2010

2010 Oh, how I have waited your arrival!

NYE 2010 with my boy :D

I cannot believe it has been a decade since the millennium--I am pretty sure the reality of 2010 is hard to believe for a lot of other people. Let me look back at where I was 10 years ago...
2000
I was a sixth grader in Mrs. White's class at Mitchell Elementary School in Santa Clarita. I can actually say that I was a part of the graduating class of 2000! (even if it was just promotion to 7th grade...)
Highlights

Surprisingly, I remember quite a few things from ten years back:

1) I began blogging! funny thing is, you can still check out my website @ http://www.bananapie.com/

2) I was chosen to speak at my 6th Grade Promotion--I remember working so hard on that speech and felt so proud to stand up and actually get to present it in front of my entire class and their families!

3) As an avid Girl Scout, I traveled with my Girl Scout Troop to Sacramento where I learned a lot more about just the Gold Rush--but also about how to avoid drama with other girls in the troop!

4) I was a member of the Santa Clarita Children's Chorus--its first year of existence in the SCV--and was where I met other incredible singers Haley Singley and Markie Hester

5) In AYSO I played on KickIt.com, a great year for us because we made it to the play-offs.

6) My first semester in Junior High at Sierra Vista Junior High School, where I met some of the people I still know today: Suzie Fulleman, Ayesha Ali, and Ricky Miller...


Looking back, a lot has changed. Friends have come and gone--while some have stuck around! Memories have been made and have faded, tears have been cried, smiles have been drawn, but what is most important still remains true: growth.
The more you learn, the more you question, the more you question the more you interpret, the more you interpret, the better you understand and understanding is the key to growing stronger and more successful in every way.
My life may seem as if it has drastically changed, but truth is, I am still blogging (haha) and still performing (Vagina Monologues out this Feb)!
Happy 2010 ♥
