No Longer Rebel-lious

Due to a drastic turn of events and an open opportunity, I sold my Digital Rebel camera along with every accessory that I bought with it.

I’ve used the camera for every single picture that I’ve posted on this website since September 23, 2004 and I’ve had a lot of fun with it. I’ve regarded the camera as my 3rd most valuable posession, behind my g5 and my pokemon card collection and it was one of the most expensive things that I paid for with my own hard earned money. We’ve been through thick and thin together, from marathons, to road trips, to vacations. Simply put, my camera was my road dog.

Now I’m back to my broken Canon a70 for at least 2 months, but I HAVE A PLAN. I’m going to cut corners and pinch pennies to save up $1,379.90 by 12/31/05 to buy a Canon Digital Rebel XT ($789.95) and a Canon 70-200mm f/4L ($589.95), two of the finest pieces of camera technology available today. I’m going to sacrifice food and drink everyday for the next 3 months and have crackers and water…everyday. I might even take things a step further and mix my gasoline with water to stretch it, and pick up pennies from the ground.

To help you track my progress, I have added a “savings tracker” on the sidebar for you to track how close I am to my goal. If you are feeling especially generous, you can donate to bring me closer to the goal (DO IT!! DO IT!!), but no pressure.

P.S: I don’t really have a pokemon card collection.
