My photography class is going wonderfully! I bought a new lens for my camera, the Canon 50mm f/1.8 II. Fantastic portrait lens!
I would take a picture of it but . . . You see the problem? Since this is the only lens I have I can't take pictures of it. Here are some pictures I have taken WITH it though.

My 3D class has also been going pretty well. Our most recent assignment was to make two kitchen appliances. I did a retro fridge and stove. For simplicity's sake I converted the stove to a glass electric top because I honestly didn't have the time to make a gas grate. I might add that later. I might also make the oven door see through and put some oven racks inside to sell the look better, but he only gave us a week to do it so I really didn't see the need to kill myself.
Needless to say I am more proud of my stove than I am of my fridge but I they both work, especially together. Just a FYI, Big Chill is a real brand that still makes retro appliances. So if you are in the market, check them out. Be warned, however, they will cost you dearly.
Well, I must bid you farewell. I need to eat and then help my friend with her homework.
