City Lights

I'm about 3/4 the way through Catching Fire and it is taking quite a bit of willpower to type this up right now instead of finish the book. But I know once I finish it, I'm gonna want to immediately go out and get ahold of the third book. And I don't feel like leaving tonight.

Today Brian and I went to see Act of Valor. Holy cow, what an intense movie that is. I recommend it, 100%, for sure. After we left, I decided that I sort of felt guilty just watching that movie and then carrying on with my normal life. It's one that you feel you should sit in the theater for hours afterward and just think about it. If you see the movie, you will understand.

Anywho, we've had some crazy weather here this past week. It's sunny, and then 5 minutes later it looks like a blizzard outside, and then 5 minutes later it's back to sunny and all the snow melts, and then 5 minutes later it's snowing again. I don't like it. Yesterday it was amazingly warm and I felt like I should have gone to a baseball game, and now today it's freezing outside. I do not like the winter here. Not one bit. Would rather it just be cold and snowy for 3 months straight, but this little patch of SD doesn't work that way, apparently.

However, having rain instead of snow makes for some fun city lights driving photos...

Winter in Rapid City. No snow...Just rain. And cold. And wind. And when snow DOES finally show up, it only lasts for a few hours, if even.

Love the way the wet streets reflect the lights. Adds a whole new look to the crazy lights! Some others from this rainy night and city lights adventure

Late-night hockey game at the Main Street Square rink. Sort of a fun one, the players look like orange ghosts skating around. And I love love love the lights!

Fun stuff, eh?

Sent in my application for an apartment in Sioux Falls. I'm hoping to be able to move in next week, but we will see what happens. My job should transfer to the SF store, although I've yet to hear back from them on whether or not it's happening. Little frustrating. But either way, I'm gonna need another job, so it's not too big a deal. I can't wait to be closer to home and be able to catch some family time whenever I want. And BASEBALL season is just around the corner!! So ready for some super nachos in the sun!

Oh, also, donations are still being accepted via the little orange link on the right. I received one the other day from a photographer who I greatly admire and that little act of kindness and confidence in me just totally blew me away. Thank you, THANK YOU!! Just over one month left to reach my goal amount. Slowwwwly getting there!

You guys are the best, seriously. =)
