I love how this is instantly my fault, but then again, so is everything else. so it's cool I guess.
Figured that this could be a thing while I actually have the ability to be bored and think about something for once.

Haven't gone out to shoot anything yet for this month's page of next year's proposed calendar, but I'm sure that'll change soon. January's shot was just a remake of a photo I took last year, in hopes that I would remember to submit it to the Iowa State Fair this year, but I'll also be including it in the calendar. I figured I didn't need two nearly identical images in my gallery, so I decided against uploading it. This is the old photo.  Shades of Gray by Npm98
Tbh I've been too tired on my days off to go out and shoot, but my work schedule is supposed to be changing again so I'll be working two 8 hour days and two 6 hour days to keep me at the same amount of hours per week while giving me an extra day off, so that should be nice, and do a lot for my motivation on my days off, haha.
I'm still working hard with my "new" band, and we recorded a few rough demos during our last rehearsal. I was hoping that they would be edited and posted to our website by the end of this week, but the band leader wants everybody (except for me) to re-record their parts, though I'm not entirely sure why. Oh well. Shit happens, as seems to be my life motto these days.
Speaking of shit happens, yes, another installment of "How hard can life fuck me over?!"
On this week's episode - my barn caught on fire!

Well, that makes it sound a lot worse than it really was. One of the heated water buckets that we had out there shorted out or otherwise malfunctioned and started on fire. We were just sitting down to dinner when my mom happened to look out the window and see smoke outside. We had just gotten some snow, so she asked, "Is that snow blowing off of the roof of the barn, or is something on fire?" My dad and I went out to investigate - we both immediately smelled burning plastic and heard the wood popping, but he walked around the side of the barn to look into the large sliding door while I started walking straight into the building. He saw the fire and told me that it was indeed on fire, and we got it put out in just a couple of minutes. We figure it hadn't been burning for more than a minute or two before my Mom noticed it, or otherwise the entire barn would have gone up. Here's a shot of the damage - the half wall stands about 4 feet tall, and the charred area is about five and a half feet long, and 6 feet deep. We're no experts, but we figure that the fire started at the bucket and worked its way along the wall and the power cord for the bucket, instead of starting at the extension cord it was plugged into.  Snapchat-1894606999 by Npm98 
All of the animals are fine - no alpaca chops or roasted chicken for dinner that night, but still an unsettling and somewhat surreal experience, from which I learned that, in the absolute worst case scenario, I can be ready for work in less than half an hour, and not walk in smelling like a pile of charred tires. :thumbsup:

Anywho, I'm just getting over a bit of a cold that's been making its rounds in my area lately. I passed it on to my girlfriend who has it far worse than I did, but my parents remain healthy :stare: I still don't have my Samyang 35mm back from repairs, even though it was only supposed to take 4-6 weeks upon being received by the company, and it got there December 3rd. I should give them a call soon to see wtf is going on, buuuut let's be honest. Probably not. Despite that, I really hope to have the ability to work with a new model soon, but we'll have to see how all of that works out. Excited about it no less :la:

And last but not least, I've got a couple of music projects that I've been working on a bit this month, one of which I literally just started last night, which is why it mostly sucks lmao. We'll see if I get anywhere with either of these, or if they just sit around, uncomplete like the rest of my projects. Check it here, since YouTube muted it because copyright. Make sure you click on the little "Vimeo" button down in the bottom right corner of the video to read the description. 

So, how have the whole two of you who will read this been? :D 
Go check out all of these awesome people who have been kind enough to feature my work recently! :la:

Okay, hi

My name is Nick. I'm 18 years old and addicted to caffeine and music.
I started taking photos in October of 2012, and seriously pursuing Photography and learning proper technique about a year later, after my mom got her Canon T3i as a Mother's Day gift. Since then, the passion has been ever-growing and I've recently started a photography business selling prints of my work.

If you want to get to know me, learn how I work on my photos, talk music or photography gear, or just need someone to talk to (I'm here for you!), send me a note asking for my Skype.

Want to support me? Donate to my paypal: npmorris98@gmail.com or consider making a purchase from my Etsy page. Don't want to spend money? Just share my Facebook page with your friends. Or don't. I'll still love you. :)

If I'm entirely honest, I'm not even sure at this point :XD: My life has become a blur of work, practicing parts for my band, Forza Horizon 3, and sleep. Haven't even really had time to grab my camera and shoot anything serious in a little over a month now. But, I'm still alive without any significant injuries and I haven't been fired from my job yet, so I've been operating under the assumption that things are going well! I finally pulled the trigger on a frame that I found online for that print a couple of days ago after stopping at a couple stores and not finding anything I liked, so that was a thing, and it should be here Tuesday :la: excited to finally get that hung up, even if I do feel bad about taking so long to get it done, haha. How's things for you? :D

The stuff I play in my band is all covers and to my knowledge, none of it has been recorded yet, but I do have a YouTube channel where I post some of my own personal music projects on occasion. Oddly enough, I'm a drummer, but the only things I have on there are guitar tracks I've recorded with drums that I've programmed in my recording software, but I try not to program things that I couldn't play behind the kit. Most of it is just me dicking around with random metal genres, being 100% unable to write a full song, and none of them are particularly impressive :P but anywho, these are all in semi-chronological order, from oldest to newest.

I'm only working 28 hours a week, so I still get plenty of me time, but I'm still working on re-balancing my life at home with my life at work. I had it down to a fine science for my first few weeks on the job, but my schedule recently had to change since most of my co-workers are going back to college and couldn't keep their schedules the same. I'm now working three 6p-12a shifts, a 4p-8p, and a 4p-10p shift per week, so it's been an adventure trying to bend my sleep schedule to the will of the chores that need to get done around the house :XD: I'm slowly figuring it out, but they have free coffee at work after 8, so I kind of OD on caffeine sometimes and don't end up falling asleep until 5 in the morning and waking up well past 2 in the afternoon. If you ever, for some reason, want to fully fuck up your sleep schedule, do that. :iconderpplz: 

Glad to hear you've been doing well aside from the sickness, and KSJDJADFKJSKLDGJ THAT'S AMAZING :la::la::la: congrats! When/where is it gonna get published? I'd love to check it out :D Can't wait to see the photos from your paid session too! I'll be sure to send you a couple shots once I get the print hung up, and I'll actually use my camera this time instead of just my phone, haha.
