Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

This University Thing

It's always a great sense of relief when one finds someone with the right answers.
I can't tell you how many people I've talked to in the lat week about all this University stuff. Even the department advisor could not help me. Even though I come to find out she is close friends with a neighbour down the road from me. Who would have thought?
Frustrated I finally call the Student Academic Sucess Center. Thinking I would get an appointment nxt week. Well I got one the same day. And she knew her stuff. I came away after 45 min and many many questions satisfied that I was on the right track. So now I can pay my tution, buy books and get ready to for my first class on Sept 8th!

We also bought me a NEW TO ME car to drive instead of a van. We bought another disel Jetta the same make and colour and year as the one we have. We get it next week if everything doesn't fall through. Jack finally agreed this was better than busing for me. I can get to Nathan or Miranda if something happens.

I've also decided to quit my job. I've decide to put the full of my energy to my family and studies. For the $45.00 a week I would make it's so not work it. And I don't want to do kids club after school. I may look for a part time job on campus. I think that would be the smarter option.

Remember my last post? The one about meeting up with one of the two people I went o school with way back when? Well the other one has replyed to and he is a busy person, but from what I can make mostly happy. We will not be meeting and that's cool, but it was so awesome to hear from him. Glad to know what he is doing with his life.

And I finally figured out my colour issues with my camera and so now here are some pictures I took yesterday, with the adjustments made!

Rain coming, we have had some many showers that you can see them coming.

No fixing the colour.
