Digital camera and other pieces on my mind

So I finally have my digital camera. For exactly a month already to be exact. It’s Powershot a610 just as I planned and the day before yesterday I bought rechargeable batteries for it as I was using alkalines so far. I haven’t used it very much yet but even so I’m convinced that it was right decision to buy that camera. It is easy to use automatic mode and just a bit harder to use manual modes. I feel that I need to learn the basics of photography more, since I sometimes feel that the camera could do better if I could set better combination of aperture and shutter speed. I’ve uploaded some of my pictures here. I especially like the one at left.
Otherwise I’m busy with school. In biology we have to make a presentation about greenhouse effect at 15th, it couldn’t have been better day than my bday.
I like math better. I participated in county olympiad and got 1.-2. place :). However I believe that exercises were in some way simpler than they have usually been. Another thing is that many talented students from our county study at Tallinn’s schools so competition at county olympiad isn’t so hard.
In Informatics we learn to use Gimp which is great because I know many things already. For others it seems to be difficult to get used to with Gimp windows and the way of handling layers.
Also is a lifesaver. Sure I almost always read the books we have to for literature but some books like “The Trial” by Franz Kafka are hard to understand and it makes it easier to write an essay after reading sparknotes’ summary and commentary. So I’m rather relieved after noticing that next book we have to read “The Plague” by Albert Camus is also listed there.
There’s this song “Lõpulaul” performed by Evelin Pang on the cd called “Rändamine” that I really want. It sounded very great live in summer 2004 but I’m afraid that the cd is too expensive to buy since I only want one song. Oh well a cd with Tallinn City Theatre songs is supposed to come out soon and I won’t miss that one. And… I managed to get 3rd row tickets for Ugala’s play “Lõõmav pimedus” at 3rd March so I have something to look forward to. I like that feeling.
Now off to clean my room and read through biology material.
