Catching Up- Q&A

So a follower left some question for me this week, and because I have been a bit absent lately, I thought I'd update ya'll! (Thanks Emily for the questions)

What can we be praying for for your China trip?
Well, you can pray for the last $350 I need to raise by June 16th. Then you can pray for my travel and safety, of course! Also that I would be able to emotionally handle leaving when the trip is over. I had a very difficult time leaving a child in Haiti last year and I am feeling that I am going to get attached to a child at Maria's. (Not a bad thing, just hard for me)
What camera gear & editing software do you use?
Currently I am taking pictures with a Nikon D5000, and editing with Photoshop Elements 11.
What is on your wish list for photography gear?
Well I would love to have my own camera. (The camera I use is my Dads) As for a camera body I really want a Canon Rebel T3i and a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens. Also I'd like Photoshop Lightroom.

What is up with Ally these days?
Not much. She is almost done with her math this year, so we can all say HALLELUJAH! 
How are Aaron and Tiffany doing in Guam?
Good I think! Tiffany joined Aaron in Guam a couple of weeks ago and they bought a house.

Would you rather be a giant mouse or a tiny elephant?
Tiny Elephant, definitely! Mice are gross. 
Green pears or the brownish kind?
Green? I'm not a big pear person.
What are you looking forward to for jr. year?
Being closer to senior year!! But seriously, I'm not sure.

Any college plans yet?
I have had college plans since I was about 6! I'm not sure where I want to go yet, but I want to study nursing and become an RN and get a BSN. (Bachelor of Science in Nursing)

Dogs or cats?
Cats! I can't stand barking!!!

Do spiders terrify you?
That depends on their size and how creepy they look. So, most of the time, yes. #baby

If you ya'll like Q&As leave some questions. Maybe I'll do another one!

Oooh I have questions!!

Where do you like to shop?

Do you have a favorite mascara?

If you won the lottery, what would you buy? (supposing you weren't allowed to donate any)

Where in China will you be going?

Do you pray or every think about your future husband?

How many pictures do you have on your camera roll?

Lightroom is great. If its the cost thats keeping you from getting it, you can always get the student edition for about $70.

Also, I don't think the T3i would be a smart upgrade from the D5000 because it is still a cropped sensor, plus you lose all your Nikon mount lenses. I hate to say it, but a full frame should be your next purchase. I know it dreadfully expensive. The least expensive full frame camera is the D610. If that is way too much, then the D7100 is the only other camera I would ever recommend as an upgrade. Its not a full frame, but its 1.3x instead of 1.6. DO NOT buy another 1.6x crop sensor like a Canon Rebel or D3200 or D5100.

By the way, the student edition is the EXACT same as the full version, just less $.
