Great post Jamie, that was a long one. I might have to do that sometime too, I learned so much about you.

Oh, I forgot to answer your question about photography. I would like to do it one day as an extra job but for now I am just enjoying learning and getting the practice. I haven't taken any classes, most of the stuff I learned online or by trial and error. I would definitely suggest a Canon, they are good cameras. If you have any other questions please let me know.
