My thoughts on my new hobby

I have not been this excited about one of my hobbies for a long time (and I have a lot of hobbies). I find myself sitting for hours trying to find equipment, reading all of the posts here and searching every photography site I can find!
I have nearly gotten everything I need for my darkroom, except the room, but I can set it up anywhere that I can make light proof for the time being and the supplies wich i will have to order soon. I can't wait seeing that first print that I develop myself. So much more exciteing than looking at the lcd screen on the back of the digital!
I am one of those people who never took a photography class. I took art. I was into painting in high school. I always had some sort of camera with me everywhere I went though!
I plan on getting out and shooting some film tomorrow. I got the wrong kind of B&W film to do developing myself (it is for c41 processing) but I enjoy just getting out! I suppose I can still use the negatives I get from costco to do my own prints.
I hope to grow alot in my art over the next year or two. Thanks for letting me ramble!
