In the News


I really hate to come on here and just whinge, but that is where life is for me right now. It's reality and I'm doing my best not to sugar coats things, when in reality things are covered in a huge dose of cheap, white, vinegar. Well it seems as though the weekends, at least one day, are not going to be a time to rest, recuperate and relax. I don't know how that's going to turn out in the long run. Class time is not enough time for me to absorb the knowledge. If I'm going to be able to spit it back out, without flipping through a text book, or checking the help menu, I need to practice. Which so far means, class time, evenings, early mornings, most of Saturday and Sunday.

I pray that things come to me a little quicker. If not, I don't know what is going to happen. The projects are just going to keep getting more and more complicated. I'm waiting to get it and enjoy what I'm learning, as told by many, including my teachers, but again I don't know. I'm trying to stay positive and remember that I'm not a dummy, but the positive self-talk isn't kicking in, quite yet. Some classes make sense, but by the time the next one rolls along or when I have an assignment, the new knowledge seems to seep out of my head. I'll be raising my hand so often, eyes will start to roll, but I have to do everything on my end, to make this successful.

You may be happy to hear that Monday was a bit better, although very fast paced, but I made it through. I've also started my morning yoga again, which I hope will help get the blood flowing and my mind right. I don't know why I always stop. Wish me luck, send prayers, anything, that I have the strength to make it through, successfully.

You take for granted the small things in life. In this case, having a working printer. Oh, to not have to go to a store, or library to pay $0.25$, or more a page. Forget if you make a mistake. So I'm enjoying having the option of printing in my own home. It's the small things.

Today is Human Right's Day. This years' theme is "20 Years Working for Your Rights". I'm thankful that I live in a country where I don't have to fight for my basic human rights, on a daily basis. I'm grateful that I can speak & write what is on my mind, without fear of persecution or death. I'm thankful that there are warriors who work on a daily basis to bring these right's to people around the world, every single day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt is also International Animal Rights Day. I'm not a vegetarian, nor will I lie and say that I adore every non-human creature that is in existence, but I try to have compassion. From not killing spiders or weird little bugs. Just leaving them where they are, unless that means in my bed, to helping the furry animals that I can. Purchasing animal products (to eat) from sources that treat the animals in an ethical manner. Yes, that can happen if you look hard enough. Of course most of the meat and products come from deplorable sources & circumstances, but not all of them. But that's an entire post, in itself. I do the best that I can, at this time in my life.
