4 years!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 30, 2014, 4:16 PM

It's been 4 years since I last updated my journal here. I still stopped by on occasion but my heart hasn't been in creative endeavours in a long while. I'm hoping that will change. It really felt like there was a hole remaining unfulfilled. I have a new camera that I'm just loving shooting with. I succumbed to the micro 4/3 format. I have the tiniest hands you've ever compared to your own! This camera fits me and the quality of shots it produces is blowing me away. Now I need to boost my skill levels and put it to some awesome use.

I'm very close to that big 3 0 and looking back at my last journal entry 4 years ago makes me realise that maybe things don't have to change dramatically.

"14 years since I left high school
14 years and I'm no where I wanted to be
14 years and I'm places I've never imagined
14 years and I've achieved nothing I thought I would
14 years and I've accomplished things I hadn't thought possible
14 years ago I was 16
14 years and I can see that time in my face
14 years I've matured
14 years I'm as big a child as ever

I feel similar but different."

Maths and physics never worked out. My classes were cancelled due to lack of enrollments. I did complete a certificate in Education Assistance and my long term goal is to head into teaching. I love children. Who'd have thought?

Goals for the coming year?

Be content.
Be active.
Be bold.
Be daring.
Trust yourself and trust others.
Do things that make you happy and bring joy to others.

Hi, I'm just going through my watchers and just wanted to say hello. I wanted to mention you may be better off following me through my website, blogger, twitter or what not as I very rarely update here. My links are in my sig if you're interested, and I also send out of a when-I-remember-but-should-be-monthly newsletter that just recaps my updates to email, which you can subscribe to through my site. I will try be more active on here but as it is, I remember to go on here every 6 months. Thanks :)

60, fix your journal as soon as you can. Be sure to keep up with your tasks too!

Do what you can, when you can, and however possible.

But remember; lazy people use Margarine.

I'm not lazy, I'm sick, hopefully sick people get more butter (wishful thinking ;))
Updated, and as soon as this chest cold lifts, I'll be back on track with the tasks :salute:

Good show! And yes, butter is better for the body and mind :salute:.
