Nature Photography is my favourite hobby and interest besides music :-) I have been into my photography for 7 years now as I took a real interest in it when I was 14 years old with my mum being my inspiration to take up photography and my uncle helped me by giving me my first ever proper camera when I was 16 years old! While I was in college, besides studying a level 3 diploma in childcare, I also did a level 2 course in practical photography, which I absolutely loved and passed with flying colours! But I do wish now that I had done an A-Level in photography instead!

I used to enjoy writing too, I haven't done it for a while as I drifted away from it. My writing only REALLY appeals to a niche group of people as I pretty much wrote fan-fiction which I know doesn't appeal to a lot of people. But I would write to express any bottled up emotions that I had.

I love My Chemical Romance even though they are no longer together, they were and will always be my heroes. I love Green Day and Bon Jovi, along with Simple Plan, Guns n Roses, Bowie and many other musicians - I'm quite a collective and I will pretty much listen to anything!


Current Residence: United Kingdom
Favourite genre of music: Rock/Alternative Rock
Favourite photographer: Jose A Gallego
MP3 player of choice: iPod Nano

The camera that I currently use (it's the only camera I have!) is an Olympus E-520. I hope to one day be able to save up enough money to afford a new camera that I can use, but I do love my little Olympus camera!
Interests
Well, this week has certainly been . . . . . interesting . . . . in short, I ended up going for a ride in an ambulance to the hospital on Tuesday after having a panic attack . . . . and what makes it interesting/ironic is that I was actually heading to the hospital to go and get my blood drawn.

Because my heart rate was a little high along with a tight chest, I ended up spending eight hours there . . . . eight hours ._. ECG test, urine test, blood glucose checked, blood pressure checked several times, heart rate monitored and three lots of blood taken throughout the whole time I was there . . . . my dad being curious asked why they were taken a third lot of bloods and was told, "to rule out/make sure it wasn't a heart attack." Queue me looking at my dad looking rather alarmed at that information!

Also, I can't quite work out why, after they took my second lot of bloods, they fitted me with a cannula and said, "now that you have a cannula, if we need more blood, just makes it easier or if you need an IV you're good to go" and they never used it ._. I ended up with four puncture wounds on my right arm from where they tried to take blood for the first lot of bloods and third lot of bloods ._. and now sporting a rather colourful bruise on that arm

*sigh*

I really, really REALLY need to overcome my fear/worry of needles, as that's what triggered the damn panic attack in the first place . . . . but I was SO determined to get to the hospital on my own steam and have my blood drawn on my own as I need to be able to do it independently.

Still, the bus driver was nice and kept me grounded until the ambulance arrived . . . . told me all about Pokémon Go even though I have no interest in the game or franchise!

And on a side note, that is completely different from the journal and journal title, once I've passed my driving test, I'll have my own freedom meaning I will be able to get out and about more with my camera :) it probably won't be until November/December time due to the waiting list for taking a test, but still, I'm rather excited by the prospect of being able to drive!

I should probably head to bed, as I am exhausted, but YouTube is such a huge distraction!

Today was one of those days.

I sometimes struggle to differentiate between whether I'm feeling low and sluggish due to my pre-existing health problems or whether its down to actually being ill with a virus/bug. Either way, my body/immune system got the better of me today. Woke up feeling more tired than I did before I went to bed, my head/mind was foggy so I couldn't focus or concentrate, and felt very sluggish and general sense of feeling unwell. It sucks as it meant I had to cancel my driving lesson :-/ but I took it upon myself to deem myself unfit to be able to focus on a driving lesson; I didn't want to put myself, my instructor or other road users at risk.

I still feel sluggish and achy now. I hate having health problems, especially as I know they're chronic and life long; its a depressing thought and honestly can make you feel like giving up and giving into it. I do my best to carry on with a normal life, as I want to have/lead a normal life, but I have those days where I can't, and it gets the better of me, like today.

I'm still job hunting too and as each day goes by, it seems more and more clear that I'm going to end up singing up to an agency and doing part time work until I can find a job.

Life does suck at times, and it certainly sucks today; kind of at a point where I could do with a hug/cuddle from someone, and just curling up in bed and sleeping. But that won't ever happen.

Thanks very much for your comments they made my day. If you fancy chatting on Facebook, swapping tips or just to generally chat about stuff give us a shout and I'll send you a link. 
If not don't worry, your work is amazing and the best education you can get with a camera is to just get out there and experiment you have a lot of talent and I'M sure that you will go far.

Thanks so much :) I will bare that in mind! My mother is my influence of getting me into photography when I was 14 years old. She's letting me borrow one of her cameras for a little while so I can decide whether or not I want to buy a new camera! I just love going out with a camera and experimenting and playing around and seeing what is about to photograph.
