So, Summer Quarter has come and taken me away. I did not expect it to be this busy. How silly of me. It is a good learning experience, though. I have three classes. Two are in the classroom, the third is online only. I am taking Introduction to Chemistry, Beginning Photography, and Biopsychology. The latter is the online course, and I am kind of regretting deciding to take that as my last science credit. I think I would have an easier time if it were in the classroom. Oh well. I am doing okay in all the classes, so I am not too worried about it.
I am really enjoying Photography, because it is allowing me to learn the different functions of my camera. And I am so glad I am not the only person in the class who did not know what those functions were, though I was surprised at the number of students who had not thought about getting a camera that would fit the class. I knew my Nikon D40 would be fine for the class. It has been great. It has gotten me back into a 365 project, or a photo per day for a year. I had stopped in June after stuff started piling up. I restarted the project with my Nikon on 1 July and am enjoying it. I may post pictures later.
My knee is doing better. It has been slow going and I am trying not to aggravate it further. That is easier said than done with Tae Kwon Do and Kickboxing several times a week, but the instructors are understanding.
I have joined a website that allows users to send postcards to other users around the world. I was given five addresses at random in Massachusetts, Poland, Italy, Germany, and Japan. I have sent out the postcards. So far, I have received word that my postcards sent to Germany and Japan have made it to their destinations. I find it entertaining that those postcards made it to their destinations before the one in Massachusetts. Hee. The guy in Japan has expressed interest in trading postcards back and forth. I am not sure how badly affected he was by the earthquake, but he indicated that he is cheered up by any postcards he receives. I am willing to help make his life a little brighter with a simple postcard. I also received a message from someone in Portugal wishing to exchange postcards. I am enjoying the idea of having international pen-pals.
