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...

Imagine that you are a young social worker, dedicated to finding out the hidden and forgotten old souls who haunt the cold, mean streets of the city. You seek to report on their living conditions, possibly recommending they be removed from their roach-infested “homes.”

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

Ten Portrait Photography TipsPeople & Portrait Photography
Check your Angles
Avoid unflattering angles, don't frame your model with their arms or legs chopped off unless it works for the image. If in doubt, fully frame them and do the chopping afterwards in post-processing! Don't forget to check that the tops of their heads and their feet are in focus. Missing feet are disconcerting!
Be the Director
As the Photographer, most people will be looking to you for direction. There's no time to be shy when you're behind the camera! Keep calm to help your model remain relaxed but make sure they're not made to feel awkward if you lack giving instruction. Pose them well, avoid direct bright sunlight and check out your background.
Eye contact...or not
Eye contact isn't always necessary, in fact candid journalistic style photographs often work best. Your subject doesn't have to be looking directly at the camera for it to be a successful shoot, but yo
