of cameras and cats

This is going to be a quick post since I need to go to bed soon but yesterday for Christmas I got....the Canon Rebel XS! Actually, I'm paying for $300 of it but just to hold it in my hands is so amazing. I love it so much and it makes taking pictures so much more fun and addicting. I'm going to have a lot of pictures when I come home, no joke.

Another great gift (not mine) was a kitten! Oh, she is so adorable! My grandparents got a little part Siamese kitten from a shelter as a present and she is just the sweetest thing. She likes to hide a lot but she's also a great lap cat. I never knew either of my cats when they were young so you can imagine my joy in meeting this one. She hasn't got a name yet; we're still thinking of ideas. One of the possibilities is Nellie. ^_^

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are continuing to enjoy your holidays! I'm hoping to go the library with my cousin tomorrow and then possibly go ice skating later in the week, maybe? I'm here until Friday, I believe. :D


P.S. Don't feel afraid to comment! I love comments! Who doesn't?

winter wonderland

I'm leaving tomorrow for vacation but I thought I'd share some wintery pictures first.


Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, or whatever you celebrate! I probably won't post on vacation but I'll definitely have lots of pictures when I come back! :D

all I want for Christmas...

In the true spirit of Christmas, I'm going to share my wish list. (That's kind of a joke, you guys. I'm not really that materialistic and shallow...) Anyway, I just have an affinity for making lists.

1. Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS*
2. Harry Potter Film Wizardry book
3. Moleskine notebook (I'm not picky)
4. iTunes giftcards
5. Stuff for my room: new sheets, rug, curtains
6. A kitten or a bunny ^_^
7. Snow!!!

*What I really need is $$ for this because I have already saved up nearly $400 out of the $550 this costs.

So, yes. I don't think I'll be getting much off this list but I do love to wish! That, certainly, is part of the Christmas spirit, is it not? :D


P.S. I promise I'll post pictures soon, like tomorrow. This is mostly a promise to myself. But still.

Hi, I'm Starr. So, I'm not quite sure what to say in this first post. Uh, welcome? Yeah, I'm no good at introductions (or post titles), as you will learn, even though this is probably my tenth attempt at a blog in the past couple of years (only one ever really prospered but I've since outgrown it).

Hopefully, my other posts will be a lot more interesting than this one. I just felt like I should have some sort of welcome post, some sort of little introduction to start off. I'm mostly going to be posting just whatever the heck I feel like. Probably a lot of pictures (some by me, and some infinitely better that inspire me) and some writing (horrible cheesy poems, anyone?) and a whole lot of ranting about school and family and whatever else.

I don't really care who reads this thing, this little hole in the wall on the vast universe that is the internet. It will probably be just me and maybe occasionally some spammers trying to get me to buy things. But that's okay (well, maybe not that second part, but that's what deleting is for, right?). I don't really care, so long as this blog makes me happy. As long as I have somewhere to vent and post random stuff.

So yeah. If you want to find out more about me (unlikely) just click that little page that says "About Me". It will probably tell you more than you wanted to know. FYI.
