    Now you may be wondering why i say this, it is because photography stole my life!

    I find myself doing very little other than shooting, thinking about shooting, or reading about it.

    not only that but man does the cost add up fast! In the next little while there a few things i would really like to buy and man it is crazy.
    Lens: 300$-500$
    Batteries: 80$ for two
    Memory Card: 120$
    Starage Device: 170$-200$
    Circular Polerizer: 30$-100$
    I mean at absolute best i am still going to be spending 700$!!! And thats after the 1500$ i have already spent in the last 2 months.

    Oh well it at least i am doing what i love (aside from the spending tons of money).

    You think its taken over your life... I just found out that the test I have in 30 min I know NOTHING about. Yep.... I've made perfect grades my whole life, and I'm going to fail a test, because all I do is photo stuff. Yeah... and you see that I'm on here instead of studying. No self control! NONE!

    Definitely got off cheap so far. Consider a job in photography. Tough racket, but it pays well.

    I actually think that is what i would really like to do. I will get over spending the money i think, due to the fact that i think i can make it up this summer by taking pictures. I have 2 freinds getting married, both asked me to shoot for them. Not much cash for those two, about 150$ a peice, but better than nothing.

    What can i say, i love it.

    So you're saying your life is worth $2,200??


    I bet you could get more for it on eBay.
