Welcome to my blog! I created this site in 2008 to provide a place for showcasing my photos and to provide information or links helpful to other photographers. As time has passed, I've added music videos and information as well. I will occasionally make comments, but will not preach or keep anyone from making comments of their own. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I love the feedback! My goal is to make this website a regular destination for anyone who loves photography and music and wants to see what I've been up to.

Today marks a milestone of my personal progress in getting my federal income tax return done.  Every year about this time I struggle with when I will start preparing my return.  This is even though every year I get a refund.  I dislike pouring over my personal financial data so much, I put this off as if I actually had to pay the IRS income tax!

Not particularly because I am a full time accountant during the week and a photographer only during the weekends, I always do my own return.  I do this for two main reasons:  I haven't been audited yet (so I must be doing something right) and I refuse to pay someone else to do it.

This year, I've had more time to work on my taxes since my employer, in order to remove the liability of having to carry my vacation (Paid Time Off) hours, has forced me to take this week off with pay.  As they say, it's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

So what is the milestone you ask?  Today, I printed out the tax forms I will need for my return.  I feel so proud of myself!
