A Hobby

I haven't blogged in quite a while. This semester has been nuts.

But I did get a hobby: photography.

Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18 MP CMOS APS-C Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS LensIt's an expensive hobby, so I'm starting slow. I've been saving for some time and bought a Canon Rebel EOS T2i. Nothing crazy.

I am very excited. Here are a few pics I snapped within the last week:

Only Your Blood is Enough

From Sojourn Music, Over the Grave, "Only Your Blood is Enough"

No bleeding bird, no bleeding beast
No hyssop branch, no priest;
No running brook, no flood, no sea
Can wash away this stain from me.

For only your blood is enough to cover my sin;
For only your blood is enough to cover me.

Search & Win

You can do as much or as little as you want. You can simply use the search engine to win Swagbucks, but you can also take a daily poll, take surveys, send in old electronics, clip coupons, and lots more.

Seriously, it's pretty awesome. I just redeemed my Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon gift card.

I know this all sounds like a infomercial dorkfest, but I can see no legitimate reason why you wouldn't sign up for Swagbucks. Do it.

 Yeah. No thanks. Who are we going to buy anyway? The Presbyterians?

Resolved: Never Own a Moleskine reports on the Moleskine cult:

"What we're finding is that once people buy one, they get hooked so they keep coming back to buy more in different styles," says Suzan Roerich, the category director for paper at Indigo. "We introduced agendas this fall, and we sold out very quickly. It was fantastic. Unfortunately, we couldn't get any more."

It sounds like a narcotic. Seriously.
