Many have asked what is wrong with me lately and instead of repeating myself a million times here it is: I got shafted with my summer aid and i cant get a private loan. what does this mean? basically the $5000 grant i got a while back covered my study abroad fees and hotelish like stays and what not while i am over there, it covered my airfare and the cost of getting my passport. i still need money for tuition for the 6 credits the trip and a class i am taking in august will get me, as well as food and spending money while i am in Europe. the summer grant i got will cover 3/4 of the tuition. and the tuition alone. lucky i have the rest for tuition in savings, but i wont have any food or fun money while i am gone. i have applied for 5 private educations loans, and i have asked everyone i can ask and there is no hope. Some have suggested that i don't take the class in august...if i drop that class i will drop down to part time for the summer and that will cause me to loose the grant i currently do have for my summer aid.
so i had an idea. . . that i am not totally sure i am ready for but i am going to try it anyway. and i need honest options and thoughts about this. I thought about selling a small selection of my work as a fundraiser in a way so that i can have some money while i am over there. here are the ten images i selected:
Stairway to Heaven
Walk A Mile
I would release a limited number of each print, and 8x10 would be $10 and 10x13 would cost $15. Each print will be printed on High quality Luster (matte) finish paper and the title of the work, what number of 10 it would be, my signature and the date would be on the back. This is the first time I would be releasing my work for the public to buy, and i am nervous. so please leave your opinions as a comment or send me a message NMaiBow@gmail.com and Be honest.
If you want to order Please email the Photo title and which size to NMaiBow@gmail.com and from there i will explain delivery and payment. thanks so much!
I appreciate your time, thanks so much.

I enjoy Slipknot very much. almost as much as KISS and Alice Cooper...ALMOST.
I went to doctor today and she poked me with needles and took out blood and all that jazzy stuffs. just to make sure i have all my immunizations (dude totally spelled that right without help of spell check :) up to date for my trip!! but it was NOT fun, i get to go back Friday for more poking and sticking of needles in my skin. :(

Now that it is official i will answer the questions that have been asked :)
I am going May 23rd to June 20th for a KSU Study Abroad Faculty led trip. Armon is leading the trip, and we are going to places in Europe that have a special significance for photography. Like South France, Paris and London and and few other places here and there. I will blog everyday while i a gone and post a pics so that my family and friends can see what i am up to and share my excitement.
Josh is not going, he has to stay here and take care of my puggies :)
The picture above has no relation to the Europe thing, we had a demo show at Roosevelt elementary today for AXE and i took pictures of all the demo stuff. this is during clean up and we was melting the dry ice, per Colette advice :)
Now i am off to go pick up my mommie in Salina so she can spend the day with me tomorrow!!!

well i have returned home. whoopi. no not Goldberg just whoopi.
glad to be home in my own house, my own bed with my stuff around me. my mom was right you may be staying somewhere that feels comfy...but it just isn't home. don't get me wrong i loved the month i spent in the ict with my family. enjoyed everyday of it. just glad to be home. lol.
I had a great time with my friends from home as well. i went out way to many times thou. but it is out of my system and i hope (fingers crossed) that i am caught up and got to see everyone that i wanted to see...minus a few but our schedules never worked out. i wanted to go to the Pub and Anchor one more time but that didn't pan out either. oh thee well.
School starts on thursday...whoopi...in reality i am excited for this semester i have ceramics! whoot whoot. i know i will enjoy that class :)
as for the daily grid its the same ole same ole...cept today was my pups 5th birthday! she got ice cream and cookies as her cake and she got some new toys. we had fun :) she is a mess...and we decided to trim nails and while i was holding monkey he decided he didn't like what his daddy was doing so he bit Mommy....and it HURTS. but i will live with it. we will just have to pay the professionals to do it and that's all their is to it.

So i am late. Again. big surprise! lol. Yesterday was awesome, had an old friend over for dinner. well that was the plan. it stared simple...ended up crazy. after running a few errands i got a call from said friend, she was broke down so i offered to come jump her. well that didn't work. either we aer 2 stupid females who shouldn't be messing with cars or her car is really really dead. either way she ended up spending the afternoon with me. and we brought her pup over to play. and the pugs thought she was dinner. so she hung out on the table with us. she is sooo cute! and sweet! had a great night and passed out early again. trying to get my sleeping schedule in order for school next week. :( and to think this is my last free Friday for 16 wks. UGH.
As for today i spent it with maria we had fun. i finally got most of my books for one of my classes, with help from a friend who let me borrow his copy of LOTR to read. he is awesome!I found a OLD copy of the Hobbit and it made me smile :) oh and i got most of my last minute errands done before i return to the north on Sunday :( Now i just need to find the The Wood Wife by Terri Windling.....anyone got a copy i can borrow to read? please? anyone? Bueller? Bueller? oh well.
and on a last minute note i finally fell on the ice today. i got distracted and totally wiped out. it was soo funny :) or i thought it was.
