I finished at the Journal & Courier on April 13, and by the looks of the blog I haven't done anything since. Not true, though: I did three freelance assignments for the Star, one freelance assignment for the J&C, one contract private birthday party and a quick actor headshot for my uncle in between then and now. I must also add that a lot of my free time recently has been spent, not on updating the blog, but on reading Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses and E.O. Wilson's On Human Nature, both of which I highly recommend if you ever want to fill your mind with profundity. On Human Nature especially appeals to my science-minded self, and it surprisingly holds up considering its publish date of 1978. It's certainly worthy of its 1979 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction.

Seriously, you should buy or rent it the first chance you get. You won't be sorry.

For more photos, head to these Star links for the Christamore House Guild event, the Vacant art show and Perry Meridian High School's prom, and the J&C's EyeSpy gallery of the Grand Prix Breakfast Club.

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
