This break has been nice and even more so since just found out my classes don't start until September 9th. The 4:30 a.m. rises are over, at least by the alarm clock.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to fit in a little more photography, writing, and blogging, now that I don't have to commute to the college everyday. It's not a lot of spare time, just enough. I'll do my best.

I do plan on getting back to product reviews, why not? If I like a product why not share it? I also plan on doing some more recipes for animals and humans. I'd also like to throw some short videos on here to practice my editing skills. I didn't take the class to lose the skills, so again, why not? I also plan to change over my website, or rather build it from scratch instead of using this template. That might be while because it needs to be perfect and I do have a full course load. After all, I am showcasing the skills that I have learned for employment.

Books on the reading list for the remainder of my break.

Be Careful What You Pray For: A Novel by Kimberla Lawson Roby The Prodigal Son by Kimberla Lawson Roby Eyes to See: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle) by Joseph Nassise King of the Dead: A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller by Joseph Nassise

I just wanted to share  some pictures of a black bee (I'm a bee lover), a female valley carpenter bee, according to google. (I have no idea.) From the start of her feed, to the end. The males are golden I colour, but I haven't seen them yet. I wasn't trying to get a series of shots, that's why the entire flower is not in frame but I liked what occurred. In future I will try for a series, to get everything in frame.

Semester 2 is over and I'm doing my best to relax and enjoy it, while catching up on all things neglected. My back is pretty much back to my normal, so I have resumed dog walking. I was so happy to see one of my favourites was adopted and gone to her new home. There are so many dogs and cats available. If you're looking please check out your local Humane Societies & rescues, because I'm sure they are all in the same boat.

Thoughts on this past semester. Hopefully this won't come back to bite me in the future. This was a tough semester for me because it included a lot more coding, then the first semester. Something that is new to me. HTML, PHP, CSS, a tiny bit of JAVA script. There is still so much to learn and it is daunting at times. But I have no choice but to move forward and just do the work. That has been a mantra of mine these last 2 semesters. There was/is no time to moan about how I don't understand something, I just had to keep going. My final projects, well 3 of them were not to my liking at all. I had these perfect projects in my mind and they did not turn out the way that I had planned, at all. They more then fell apart at the end. So yeah, for myself I need to redo them. I still wake up thinking about them and what I could have/should have done. That is beyond irritating and it's stressing me out. I'm also still waiting on the last 2 grades out of 6. I should know by the end of the day.  Not helping with the relaxing that is supposed to be occurring.
