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!

Mary Cassatt"In art, what we want is the certainty that one spark of original genius shall not be extinguished."
Portrait of the Artist c. 1878
Mary Cassatt was born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennslyvania, USA on May 23, 1844. Her family was upper-middle-class, giving Mary the ability to travel Europe and later attend art school. Her schooling at the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts lead her to believe one of the best ways she could learn was to copy the old masters.
The Mandolin Player c. 1872
In 1866, Mary finally got the opportunity to study abroad, but even then the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts would not accept female students. Cassatt was also let down by the Salon and the conservatism of the Paris art world in general.
