A Note to Myself, Regarding Bigfoot

I was cleaning out my office the other day (or, to be more accurate, slowly moving pieces of paper from one pile to another while absentmindedly flipping through a JCrew catalog and also eating brownies … but I was in my office. So there.) and I came across this note I wrote to myself ages ago. I think it was part of a New Year’s resolution for 2012. Or possibly 2011. Needless to say, it didn’t quite get met. 

But maybe it’s something to think about for 2013. After all, I’m eventually going to bump into Bigfoot. It’s only a matter of time. So I really should be ready.

P.S. – Sorry for the short post. I’m in transit today.

    Haha best reason ever to take a photography class!

    Remember Squatch, the beloved mascot for the former Seattle Supersonics? I have several photos of him carrying around a t-shirt gun (terrifying) and every single photo is blurry. I have the sneaking suspicion that Bigfoot might be a blurry creature by nature. But that’s a really cool 2013 activity!!

    I don’t know about bigfoot, but I do know about taking photography classes. Highly recommend. I always thought I took *decent* pictures, but my camera was always on auto mode. Learning how to take pictures manually and be in control of the camera is so rewarding when you take a really good picture. It’s a very addicting and expensive hobby, I’ve found.
