You may have wondered lately when I'm going to post something other than pictures and links. Well, I have a couple of posts in my head, but I haven't had time to get them to the computer yet. I thought I'd have time this weekend, but then the weekend was gone before I knew it.
My time on the blog is probably going to be meager over the next couple of months. I started a photography class a couple of weeks ago that meets six hours a week for the spring semester and then I start a certification class for work in mid-February that meets seven hours a week for five weeks. I haven't had this much school in over a decade and contemplating my weekends taken up with homework assignments scares me a bit.
I've also started working with the Youth Friends program and am mentoring a fourteen year old girl at a local junior high school. She's cute and completely undecided about her future. I'm shaking in my boots afraid that I'll lead her to drugs and a life of crime. Okay, probably not. I'm more afraid of how uncool I am as an adult and that she'll be bored.
Work has been crazy again too, but this week looks a little better so far and so I just might be able to think about something else in the evenings.
But other than that it's been just the normal sense that too much stuff is happening in my life. I'm busy and despite my friends all telling me it's a good thing, I've always shied away from too many commitments. Except over the holidays somehow little by little I threw myself into getting everything I plan to accomplish this year done before May.
So my natural instinct is to hide out playing video games, where there's a false sense of getting stuff done, although in actuality it's a complete waste of time.
Anyway, that's the long explanation. There are more substantive posts coming soon.
