macro attempts #1: cactus

Here's the thing: I love macro photos. I don't, however, own a macro lens - most of them are fairly expensive and I don't have a proper source of income due to my shitty health situation. What I do have is a reverse ring which turns the basic lenses I got with my camera into a reasonably okay way to take macro photos. It snowed today and it's meant to snow a bit more still so I'm hoping to get out to take some photos during the week, but I wanted to polish up my macro skills - at home, since I'm feeling extremely shitty today and only left the house to go buy food for my snake. Here's the outcome - two photos of my favourite cactus.

Could've gone worse, considering the circumstances. Actually, I'm pretty damn proud of them.

some of my favourites: musicals

I have decided to make a series of articles about media I enjoy - starting with (both movie and theatre versions of) musicals. Before I start this, though, I want to say one thing: there is a certain musical on this list that I only saw the bootleg of because while it is known that it has been filmed on Broadway with the original cast, it hasn't been released on DVD or whatever for those of us who literally live across the entire ocean from the USA to be able to see it. I won't get any further into that because I'd only get angry and we'd be here for a long time. 

Now, without further ado, let me introduce you to some of my favourite musicals - in no particular order because I love them all and having to sort them from best to worst would be hell. (Fun fact: the 'x' next to each of them links to the spotify page of the soundtrack. Go listen to them, they're great.)

a new year

I have learned a lot of things in the past year or two - after all, my entire life has literally turned around in that time. These are in no particular order, but I feel like they're things everyone should know - I sure wish I did. They could've saved me a lot of worries.
