Losing Inspiration

I've lost the photography bug.

I don't want to go take photos and there isn't anything that is inspiring.

I'm in a photo slump, which may partially be caused by the fact that my computer is running out of space.

I tried buying a hard drive to back up those photos with, but then if that crashes, the photos are gone. Poof. That thought terrifies me.

I'm trying to figure out what to do, buy a bigger hard drive to back up my computer on and then the previous hard drive with just photos? See if I can get more space on the laptop itself? 

I need to figure something out because having this slump is not helping my photography skills and will not help the fact when I travel later this year. 

Any suggestions to get some space back on my computer as well as my photography mojo?

Summer Reading

I love being able to read for pleasure in the summer! It is something that I love being able to do, especially since my GoodReads to-read list is miles long! I'm not a fast reader by any means but there are tons of books that I want to read and ever since I was younger I could not leave a Barnes & Noble without one or five books in my hands. So far this summer I was able to read The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It took a while to get into this book in the beginning and its length was a bit challenging, but after reading the last chapter I was in love with this book! You needed every single word in that book to make it as wonderful as it is. I'm now on the lookout for my next summer read! I'm leaning towards The Hunger Games series, but I need to go buy the book first! I also have a Kindle and am dying for an iPad (for baking/cooking recipes and reading), do any of you have an eReader? Do you love it? Also, I would love to hear what you are reading this summer! I'm also on GoodReads, my username is Mac_kenzie so feel free to add me on there as well! Happy reading!
