I leave on Thursday for my whirlwind trip to Asia. I’m excited and nervous.
To get ready, Tina and I have been getting things done that we should have done long ago. You can start calling her Secretary Tina Serafini, as she is officially the r25 productions, inc. secretary.
We also finally got a joint banking and savings account. It’s only been two years since our wedding.
I have been updating the arsenal of equipment I’m taking with me. I now have a 24-105 mm lens, a couple new flash accessories, more batteries, memory cards, and luggage to carry it in.
I’ve been booking jobs right up until I leave. Tomorrow I’m shooting a few stills at The Merchandise Mart. Wednesday I’m shooting a short video segment with Lori Stafford of Fiserv. And I have another editing project to complete and a brochure to layout before I go.
While I’m on the road, I’ll be taking work along, but it’s not going to be easy. I know I’ll have Internet access at certain places, but I have no idea how much access I’ll have the entire time. My work typically depends on access to the Internet.
Plus, I’m not going to want to work on those projects while I’m gone. I’m going to want to work on traveling, shooting and soaking up the experience abroad.
Tina and I are seriously considering adopting a dog. We’re meeting with one tonight. I think I’ll elect our dog our treasurer, just to round out the company.
Our efforts to conceive have been frustrating. Thinking we would have become pregnant by now, we put off adopting a dog thinking that adjusting to a dog and a baby would have been a lot for us to handle.
Now, we’re like, “Fuck it. Let’s get a dog.”
I’ll let you know if the next Wittifini will be a K-9 later tonight.
