Appreciation

I have a lot of appreciation for editors now. I’ve been filling in for the editor of a paper in the area and man, it’s a time consuming job.

SO much so, that I don’t have it in me to get on the computer for very long when I get home. Here’s a picture, I might get a chance to write a better entry this weekend.

That’s a novel idea.

As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve added two pages to this blog — short stories & poetry. I always wanted to do something further with the material that I’ve written since graduating high school. I have two short stories, both under 20 pages, and I have a vast arrangement of poetry. During the coming weeks I’ll be going through my material and adding some things.

Originally I was sceptical about adding my private work online, but then I thought about it more and I think doing so would strengthen me as a writer. I would greatly appreciate some constructive criticism. Once I put some material up I will make a post to let you know that I’ve updated.

I also toyed with changing the theme of this blog today. Problem is, I really enjoy the neat, well put together blog style –small font, nothing too bold, and at least 2 available columns for my twitter feed, archives and pages. I changed the theme 3 times tonight. I came back to Manifest, it’s simply the best. One thing I dislike though, I would really love to be able to change the font color on the links. You know, at the bottom the font is a sandy color – which is nice – but I want something a little more vibrant. I guess I’ll have to fold and buy some custom upgrades. It’s about time I bought the domain, too.

Well I think that’s all from me tonight. I’m having a good time at work, being given more responsibilities/challenges, it’s been fun so far.

An archived photo that I came across, this is my Aunt Loretta and my Grandmother, Doris. One of my favourite photos.

Things I took for granted

Not going to list all of them because sadly that would take a while. Just the one. BEACH time. It’s pathetic that I’ve only been working for two weeks and I was sooooo eager to get to the beach today. This was actually the only spot not taken up by people. I didn’t care that there was a huge blob of seaweed in front of me, lol.

I stayed for an hour and a half or so and came home a happy camper.
