I made it home safely yesterday. My anti-lock braking system is broken, basically. So when I'm driving on even somewhat slick surfaces, my wheels lock up and slide and it's pretty much really dangerous. But I made it home with no problems (roads were clear for the most part)...Got to catch Dustin's basketball game last night, along with the varsity girls' game. I-W has some pretty good teams!

It was only Dustin's second game as a Varsity starter. This resulted in yesterday's photo:

77/365: "At guard, a 6'0" sophomore. Number 22, Dustin Livingston!"
Yeah he's pretty awesome. I know I'm a little biased because, well, I'm his sister...But this kid works harder than anyone I know at sports, and has loved basketball since he was born. (I believe his first word was actually "ball"...I'll have to double check on that.) Anywho, it was pretty exciting seeing my baby brother shine.

Here he is (on the left) doing an excellent job of guarding one of SD's "best players" (according to KSFY's Basketball Preview)...He took a few beatings and was thrown to the floor a few times by this kid, but he stuck with him.
Unfortunately, our wonderful Eagles were beat pretty bad this game. We just could NOT make a shot, and don't even get me started on our rebounding. But I think there's a very talented and great team in there. Dustin told me before the game that this was going to be the hardest game of the season, so now that it's out of the way I think they'll be unstoppable.

I'm glad I'm going to be home for 3 weeks so I can catch many more of his games. I just WISH I had the equipment that we used during DSU's games. That would be the greatest. But oh well.

Anywho...Before we left for the game I was playing with some aperture shapes, something I've always wanted to do but simply hadn't yet. Here's my first try:

Yay! Still have some work and practice to do with this. But it's super fun. Planning on making some more shapes before Christmas is over and getting all sorts of cool shots.
My parents' house is FILLED with Christmas stuff. I think I can make a 365 project using ONLY their decorations. Haha...I love it, though. I think I'll showcase my all-time favorite of their things for today's photo. Check back soon!


  1. LOVE THE PICS!!! Dustin looks awesome out there!! I can only imagine how good he is now comparing to how good I thought he was when I used to watch his junior high games!! hope to catch a high school one:) Thanks for the updated photos!!<3

  2. Haha thanks! Yeah it's crazy watching him play now. He plays the same as when he was little, only BETTER, which I didn't know was possible. Haha...Hopefully you can get to one this year. =)
