I can't believe it's 2018! We survived the year! We survived Trump! I am so excited to have a fresh start this year, and I have so many ideas for Nerdette At Large this year, that my head and my notebooks are reeling! Here are a few of the things I loved in the month of December!
Actually getting into Film Photography. I've had 2 film cameras for a while, but I haven't really done anything with them because I didn't know of any places that could develop my film. Then I went into Walgreens one day, and I asked them if they developed film, and they said yes, but it would take two weeks. I was pretty excited about that, but then I discovered a mom and pop shop that developed film in store! If I dropped it off on Monday, then I could pick it up on Wednesday, and they were right down the street! I took my K1000 in and they showed me how to load film, and how to use it. It hasn't left my side since. The first Monday I'll be able to drop it off is the 8th, and I already have 3 rolls of film ready! I've been so inspired by KingJvpes and WildWeRoam that I've been going out almost every day to shoot something different.
Finally getting business cards for Checkmate Photo. I've decided that I really want to go full tilt this year when it comes to photography and my side hustle. I want to start working on my portfolio, I want to do Portraits, and I FINALLY want to start working on my secret project, I've had it in my head for years, and now I'll actually have time to get to it. I am also in love with how awesome my business cards look! I got them done with Vista Print. Highly Recommend.
Finishing Rizzoli and Isles. It was a bittersweet Farewell. I had been on Season 7 for a while, but I wasn't ready for it to end, so I kept putting it off. I finally decided to watch the last thirteen episodes, and the finale was so self-aware, I cried. That's a good show to me. This series made me cry twice! When they memorialized Frost after his actor committed Suicide and the finale. I highly recommend this show, you can watch the whole thing on Hulu, don't miss out!
Coming back to knitting. While in Michael's for a Christmas Gift, Boy Wonder bought me a book about winter accessories that look like animals,(of course I fell in love instantly) I bought Yarn and Needles to complete the Bear Snood. It will be my very first project done from a pattern. I've always been a freeform knitter, but I am determined to learn how to read patterns and start churning out completed items. I knitted a successful Gauge for my project, and I'm pretty excited about that since it's the first time I've ever done it.
