I came home for break, which is awesome.
I also told my mom about how I wanted to eventually (eventually, because for college students everything happens in the 'eventually' and never the 'soon', 'now', or 'future') get a camera.
Then, like finding the fountain of youth she said she had an extra camera and it is a sweet camera. It has 14 mega pixels, 5x zoom, a nice screen for viewing, and it's a good size. I was so happy that I actually ran in a circle with the precious wonderful camera in my shaking hands.
Naturally, I tried to turn it on to take my first picture, but it shut off- low battery. Okay, that's fine. I asked my mom where the cord was, she didn't know. I asked my dad, he didn't know. I turned the house upside down looking for the cord to charge it, and, well, no such luck.
Hurray for my miracle brick of useless potential!
