So Close


I'm so close. So, so, so close.
It's been months and months and months of saving, but I'm finally in the home stretch. 

I love pictures and have wanted a fancy camera since forever. Or, at least since I knew that by "fancy camera" I meant DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex). 

Recently, I was talking to a friend about my upcoming camera purchase, and she applauded me for being "old fashioned" in my approach to this purchase. In a world of credit cards and interest rates, I could have just bought my camera already. But I wanted to make sure I had the money in cash, so it could be completely mine without regret. 

I've done my research and know exactly what I want to buy. Now I'm just waiting to get paid for the freelance edit I've been working on for the last few weeks, and then I'm ordering my camera!

Birthday money, Christmas money, leftover money from my monthly budget, money from giving violin lesson, and some freelance work. 

And since I don't have a child or a pet, I'll just have to find other fun things to take pictures of with my fancy camera. (Watch out, Jordan.)
