Sheepskin boots (to cushion the pain of my locked-up sacrum - don't worry, Uggs-haters; I changed into these boots for the rest of my day), the Detroit skyline, and a sharp new winter jacket (for him). With our coffees in hand, it was a nice way to begin a long day.
And holy moly, can I please move to New York and get this job?
I match every single one of the required qualifications (and then some!).
But then there is that whole living in Windsor/Toronto thing, and that whole having-to-write-a-thesis-to-graduate-from-my-Masters thing. Next time I will have the foresight to live in New York and shun post-graduate studies.
Also, anyone who has an iPhone or Android phone should download Magic Hour.
It was the
best thing biggest mistake of my day so far - how am I supposed to read and synthesize 20 academic articles when I basically have Photoshop on my phone?
Unlike the static filters in Instagram (which I adore), you can download and create your own filters, in addition to the ones that come preloaded with the app.

Last Friday, my friends and I walked into a bar that was full of Christmas lights everywhere.
Was I excited that the bar makes the best Tom Collins in a 300 km radius? No.
Was I excited that I had just had the best pizza in a 500 km radius?
Kind of, but I guess I'll get to the point.
Was I excited that the bar was strung out with Christmas lights on every possible surface?
You had better believe that I dialed 1/60 and f1.8 into the manual settings on my camera and played around. And yes, you had better believe that I may
or may not be buying Christmas lights just to experiment a little bit more with bokeh.
(Candles only go so far.)
Ryland! (No flash.)
Lights! (No flash...and, um, a leeeeetle bit of Photoshopping to give it the blue effect.)
Dom! (And yes - you can still achieve the bokeh in the background with the flash in the foreground - score!)
