Cheers to Another Year

Although senior year hasn't even started yet, taking my senior photos has really got me pumped for my last year of high school! In a few posts back I posted some pictures of myself as a Rep for Be You Portraits, but now I've got my real senior photos and I like 'em!

Taking senior photos was surprisingly reminscent for me! I can't quite put my finger on why, but taking photos of myself with the knowledge of knowing "these pics will represent my life as a high school kiddo!" was just nostalgic! And I'm not even out of high school yet!

Anyway, enough of my sappiness, Ellen, the photographer for Be You, is the coolest photographer I know - she's like the big sister I've never had! :) She also has an awesome blog that you won't be disappointed by! She really captures a personality well. :)

So, I thought I'd share some pics from my senior photo session with you! I have a couple more, but I didn't want to bombard you with so much ERIN. ;) Any favorites?

Be sure the click the pics to enlarge! They look super cool close-up! :)

If the scenery looks familiar, it's because these photos were taken at the same place as I took the photos in the last post! :) (Thanks Ellen for the site discovery!)

And another reason to celebrate: I started my first paid job yesterday! Wahhaaa! :DD I'm a (part-time) tutor at Kumon! Woot! I get to teach the little 'uns who are just learning to read and can count to 300ish.

I'm already enjoying it there! I would love to work in a career that involves helping children - they're the best in so many ways (although they leave me super fatigued)! This one guy was doing his math drill and all of a sudden says, "Yesterday, I went down stairs and sat down on the potty and then I went potty." He was real serious about it too! :D

I also discovered these amazing prints by Spanish graphic designer and illustrator Bianca Gomez and they are lovely:

(my favorite! i would like the same exact sweater!) :)

PS. I wanted to thank you guys for your lovely comments in my last post! You guys are such loyal readers and I really appreciate every second you spend reading a word on my blog! Every time I see a new comment, I jump an inch off my seat! Your comments made my cry a wittle inside. :)

I have been away from your blog far too long! Your senior pictures are gorgeous (I love the first one!)and yes, these will represent you high school/teen years, I hope you keep enjoying them this last year!

And congrats on the job, it sounds very fulfilling! Kids tell you the best things! A few weeks ago my nephew was bragging to me about umm, his being able to go potty standing up now, like a big boy. (It was weird, but cute at the same time...)
