Just a heads up for Americans who wanted to purchase a NEX5 because of Tynan's review. The body is on sale for $369 to Americans (no lenses included). I'm not American so I couldn't pick this up but I figure there might be a few people here thinking about getting one.
Not trying to spam. I think that is an affiliate link but I don't know who gets it, I tried to get rid of the affiliate link and the price went back up.
Just for fun, here are all of my political views. I'm not super into politics at all - in fact before Bush started screwing everything up, I had zero interest in them. I definitely haven't done enough research to have definitive stances on most of these things, so take them with a grain of salt.
This is the one I care about the most. Our tax system is extremely screwed up. Did you know that we're one of only TWO countries in the world who tax their citizens if they don't live in the country or make money in the country? If I spend a year traveling the world, making money online, I STILL have to pay taxes in the US (there's a partial exemption that it's possible to qualify for).
“We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ― Paulo Coelho
I was born in 1980, in the city of Salt Lake. Not a son of a mormon family. Just a son. By the time I was six. I had already lived in a dozen homes. I was an orphan. A wanderer. An unwanted. The world, and all it's chaos had already decided that I was mischief. And it didn't know how to accept me.
This pattern of life has continued all of my life. With me roaming the plains of Wyoming, the foothills of Colorado, the Mountains of Montana, and living on both the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, and the beaches of the Pacific.
This earth is not my home, but instead I've chosen to traverse it, to explore it, to breath it in for all it's worth. I became an entrepreneur at an early age. And I haven't looked back. I believe in unschooling. Because I've pretty much taught myself everything I know. And outside the lessons that my father taught me not many souls have had a greater impact on me than reading, traveling, and life experimenting.
My first job was in a restaurant. It was more about surviving. A restaurant job provides you access to food, and allows you to save money. My second job was an office job. It was the worst of my jobs. After that I determined that jobs weren't really for me.
