New Year's Goals!Alright, so every year I make goals or write down things I want to do then see how many I managed to accomplished. So far since I started doing it while in college (admittedly 5 years ago) I have managed to get more and more things done on my new list each year. I thought this year I would share some of the things I wanted to do... so maybe I'll inspire you or to push myself further.
- Brush Teeth after every meal
- Floss every day (not just randomly)
- Portion control my meals, smaller plates = smaller portions, no seconds, etc.
- Continue not eating/drinking: Soda (2 years now), No Alfredo or Chinese food (1 year now)
- Give up Fried Food completely (Except for Chicken Wings)
- Give up Candy and Sweets and that crapola
- Stop saying the "F" word
- Enter the NYS Fair Photography Contest (Aug)
- Enter the Rosamond Gifford Zoo Photography Contest (Jan)
- Enter the Beaver Lake Photography Contest (Jun-Aug)
- Complete a Novel (Don't put it off until Nanowrim

Some Stuff...Ah the life of a teacher, naturally my immune system is strong, but not strong enough this year. I have been icky ill the past week, hence my nonexistence on this site. So to catch up I thought I'd do a journal post.
Whoever gave me a 3 month membership THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I really appreciate it since mine was going to run out and I haven't had room in my budget to renew because of Christmas. I am so thankful.
Anyways, I shall be getting back to everyone who left comments, it just might take me awhile. Hope everyones well... one more week of school then break!

What a Day...Hello everyone!
Personal Journal not a feature, although it is on my to do list to do a feature I've just been so busy.
I've had quite the day I just had to post if not for a little sympathy then to rant. I'll start out by saying, it really wasn't horrible and I know that, but it still was exhausting. It has been tiring to say the least.
I went to school and had to deal with an irate parent who thinks my job is to do the work for their son. News flash: teachers teach not do the work for the student that is their job. Very frustrating, especially when I bend over backwards making it easy for this student to make up work, extend deadlines, only to have them fail because they are lazy. UGHHHH.
Then on my way to my second job of the day (office type job) I witnessed an accident which was horrible. Seven police cars, ambulances, firetrucks the whole shebang. No one died though which is good.
THEN on the way home from my second job onto my third job of the day (babysitting over night while t
Feature and Ramblings!I went to the Utica Zoo on Saturday and went to the Buffalo Zoo today but I have to admit I'm somewhat disappointed... It ended up pouring more than being actually decent weather for both days... Lots of animals were not out. I am supposed to go to work tomorrow but I might go to the zoo near me instead... Bad me, I know but so tempting.
So anyways I'm stealing this idea from SilverVulpine, take a look at the lists of animals and comment requests for photos of certain animals! Mammals - http://www.rosamondgiffordzoo.org/mammals, Birds - http://www.rosamondgiffordzoo.org/birds, Amphibians & Reptiles - http://www.rosamondgiffordzoo.org/amphibians-reptiles, Fishes - http://www.rosamondgiffordzoo.org/fish, and Invertebrates - http://www.rosamondgiffordzoo.org/invertebrates
How is everyone doing?
These are hilarious pictures I've discovered. They made me literally laugh out loud so I wanted to share...

Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

You and IArtwork by agnes-cecile
I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.
I see what it's like for day and night.
this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile
'Cause they see things in a different light
But they never tried

To share what you loveHello everyone,
It's been such a long time since I've done a feature just for the heck of it, without any purpose whatsoever other than showcasing things I love. I've been so busy on here with young-photo-club, Death-Chicks, GetDailyDeviations, and my own Group Spotlight features that I haven't been able to do a feature of random things I've seen and adored here on DA! So here it goes!

Friday Photography FeatureHello Everyone!
I enjoy being featured so I thought I'd start doing a weekly feature in my journal. One of my favorite things to do when I get home from work is sort through the new photos on Deviantart and away! So these are some of the ones that caught my eye, hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
If you like the <3

Let the Sparrows InI.
Blackbirds rest on the power lines,
their silhouettes form the notation
to a dawn song set on the sheet music
of telephone poles contrasted by the sun.
Curled leaves are land mines littered
on the lawn where imprints of twigs
and a nurturing robin's tracks collect.
Branchlets and leaflets stem from
porch step railings and mailboxes;
the numbers read odd on the east,
even on the west side of the asphalt:
The engraved letters on
the siding reads, "Davis."
This house is home to family
so let the sparrows in.
with its branching hallways
furniture rooted to the floor
family, friends, the occasional
out from home.
Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
