I've been rather busy lately! I'm running a new site, trying my hand at some photography, and battling my way through some stressful exams. Hopefully I'll come out alive next Friday but in the meantime I'm going to take a breather from ym activities to write about... my activities.

First off, my new site is a craigslist competitor in the making called AucDog.com. I've been working on it for about two weeks now with a couple of friends, and it's coming along very nicely. We've worked out the basic layout and UI, and when exams are over I'm going to finish the Google login feature and we're going to launch in Palm Coast, Florida. It's been very fun and challenging so far, and I'm hoping that it turns into a long-term project so that I can have something to spend my spare time on over the summer.

Speaking of spare time, I took up photography yesterday. I bought a very cheap used DSLR, the EOS Canon Rebel for $150. I'm pretty sure I didn't get ripped off (I bought it from a friend), but either way it's much cheaper than buying a new (and quite sexy, if I do say so myself) T3i. The lens that came with it is passable, but I'm looking into a 50 mm F/1.8 lens so I can do some dramatic portraits/close shots and maybe a cheap zoom lens. I'm really excited about this new hobby, and I imagine I'm going to get Photoshop soon after the MacBook Pro arrives so I can start editing too. 

Here's the camera:
As far as exams go, I'm currently in the final phase of my time in the IB program, which consists of essentially nonstop testing. So far, I've taken only three tests, but the time spent testing is already about 7 hours. Thankfully, I only have one test left for this week, but next week is going to be hell: nine tests in five days. To say summer cannot come fast enough is an understatement.

Kyle! I am VERY interested in your new site. Let me know when it is complete.



PS: I know you'll come out unscathed!
