I finally got it!
The one and only it!
The it I have been wishing for, dreaming for, longing for.
YES, that it.
For those of you who are confused (I'm guessing that's everybody), I finally got my Canon 30D. It arrived today all sweetly packaged in a beautiful toasted brown cardboard box, buried underneath a flurry of packing peanuts, wrapped gently in its plastic bubble blankets, waiting for me - it's new, overjoyed owner. I guess I was sort of in a rose-tinted glasses mood because everything that day wooed me over into perpetual bliss. For one, I'm just happy that I can finally submit photos to Foodgawker and Tastespotting that actually deserve it (to be honest, I'm quite sick of the rejection emails due to blurry, out-of-focus, dull images)!
I consider it an early Christmas present to myself. I once wrote, once upon a time ago, that I was still a working gal saving up for a professional camera. Well, I'm still that same working gal but now I'm a working gal with a fully functional, working camera. And after all of my hard work, I think I deserve it and how appropriate that it would arrive at such a quintessential time (right after my finals)! Now can someone buy me some lenses please?
Time for me to learn how to use this baby, Ciao!
