today is my first day of holiday vacation. eleven days off in a row! getting paid while not working is a totally foreign concept, having only ever had part-time jobs where paid vacation and holidays do not exist whatsoever.
my new camera arrived thursday and immediately erased any doubts i might've had about the purchase. the light sensitivity is absolutely amazing, it's almost like it creates light where there is none. that's my favorite thing about it so far.
last night i went with cam and her boyfriend to winter garden aglow at the idaho botanical gardens.

tonight i'm buying the camera of my dreams, the canon 5d mark ii. i'm excited because i've wanted one for so long, but also freaking out because i'm a tightwad and it's a lot of money.
i keep reminding myself that this is normal. lots of people drop large sums of money on their hobbies, or other nonessential, extravagant things. (like, check out this super classy bruce lee pen set, a steal at $290k. it's literally one of the things that come up when you google "expensive.")
in the scheme of things this splurge is not that big of a deal...like getting a haircut, it will grow back eventually (hopefully).
can you tell i'm still working on justifying this?
are you treating yourself to anything special for xmas this year? and if so, how do you justify it--by googling bruce lee pens, or...?
