It has been a busy time and I don’t foresee any changes for the next three weeks, but I am going to try to squeeze blogging into my schedule the best I can. With two labs and a final on the horizon, I will have my head in the books.
I did take some time for myself last week, knowing that I would be drowning in homework for a while. On Thursday, I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. with Kindred Spirit. She took a photo of me that I liked, so I changed the photo on my About page.
Friday was another beautiful day, and I needed some photos for a homework assignment, so I took Strider (one of my Old English Sheepdogs) hiking at Great Falls National Park.
Now, for Cee’s Share Your World Questions:
For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop, pad, or phone?
I use my laptop almost exclusively for blogging. I might check notifications on my phone, but usually it just frustrates me because there are so many to read.
I actually go to someone’s blog to interact with them, even if it I only have time for the “like” button. Maybe that is why I am so slow at keeping on top of social media.
My laptop uses Windows. I have considered changing, but I am very happy with Windows. I think they share their software better than Apple, and I like that. Apple is very stingy with its products. You have to join their cult to use what they have to offer.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an Algebra teacher. Now, I have forgotten more math than I can remember. There was a short time when I thought being a photo journalist sounded exciting.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in New Jersey’s largest city, if you are counting square miles and not population. It was thirty minutes to the shore and not much longer to get into Philadelphia. I didn’t know anything different, having grown up there from birth until I was 19, so I did like it at the time.
Since then, I have lived at the Jersey shore, in San Diego and Philadelphia, out in the country on a cattle farm, in small towns, in a college town, and in urban sprawl suburbs – not necessarily in that order.
If I had to choose now, it would be hard to choose between living in Philadelphia or on the coast. I like both. I love the way the city is always alive. I love the sound of the surf and the laid back life at the beach. I hated tourist season in both places.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
I’m not sure I know how to answer this question, since I am very aware of my age. If I had a mirror, there would be no doubt. Based on my life experience, there would be no doubt. But, if I woke up with amnesia, I might think I was a little younger than I actually am – even if it was only momentarily. One look in a mirror or at places my body has battled gravity and the illusion goes up in smoke.
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week, I was grateful for the time I had to spend with Kindred Spirit. I am also grateful for the day I spent hiking. And I am grateful for the time I spent with my husband this weekend.
I can’t think of one thing I am looking forward to this week. I just hope to finish my lab on time. So, maybe I am looking forward to getting that turned in.
