Yes, precisely. And being a poser is only fun to an extent, so around last year I realized how shockingly dumb it is to pretend to be someone else. Besides, I was like 13 or 14 when I joined this forum so it makes sense that I was a retard. XD
Spiegel: You actually got to MEET him? Woah, that's seriously fantastic. He seems like he'd be a really fun person to hang around with. He writes so casually, it makes it 98707352 easier to understand things while also making his books seem inviting. I wish I could take a REAL photo class... Though I get four college credits out of this class at the end of the year, so that's pretty great.
Mal: It depends on whether or not I can get the job I've applied for. If I get hired, I want to get something maybe in the $500-$800 range, plus whatever I need to set aside to get a bit of gear to start with and possibly another lens. I'm very willing to invest in an expensive camera, but if I don't start making real money soon I'll probably be in or less than the $200~$400 price range, which likely would have to cover everything else I get as well. I still need to decide on a camera though, and I'm not too sure how much the good ones run for.
