In 2008 I did Project 365...and I loved it. I have had most of that year put into various coffee table books, and I just love being able to look back over the year and remember things.
I started off doing it in 2009, but couldn't quite seem to keep up. So I quit about halfway through and just forgot about it.
This year Cara has been doing her project 365, and it has reminded me how much I miss doing it. Even if I don't get it all put together right away, I really want to be able to look back and remember what these days are like -- especially since I can hardly remember how the day started once it's over!
So, even though it's March, I'm starting again. A week at a time, so even if I miss a day it shouldn't be too obvious...

I am not particularly known for my decision making skills. I know, I know - somewhat shocking, and yet, somewhat not. I can make big decisions at the drop of a hat. Decisions about patients and work? In a split second. But everyday choices? You'd think I never made a choice in my life!
So, dear friends, here are the things I am currently in desperate need of your assistance with:
1. Embroidery Machines
I've always wanted one. Why? No idea. Probably because I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head, but whatever. So what say you, interwebs? Worth it to get a combo embroidery/sewing machine? Or is machine embroidery terribly difficult and likely to force me to tear my hair out? Please keep in mind, while bald may be beautiful, it won't be a good look for me.
Clearly I want one simply because I don't have one. And because I love my camera. And because you never know when I flash might come in handy (and I refuse to use the built in one). So, what does everyone know about speedlights? Or should I stick to just keeping the aperature wide open learn to hold my damn hands more still?
3. Mac vs. PC
The time is coming in which I will need a new computer. Mine still runs just fine, but the memory is just about full. I keep pulling things off (I have an external drive too) but I never seem to free up much space. And I need more battery life -- even fully charged, I can usually only get about 90 minutes of use before I have to plug in or the whole thing shuts down. So, which is better - Mac or PC? I've always had a PC, but now that I've discovered that you can install windows on a Mac and use a bridge program to run PC based things like my versions of lightroom and photoshop, I am open to the idea of a Mac. I think...
Alright -- on your mark, get set, tell me what to do!
