With all of the insomnia, it just seems like a waste of time not to not learn a new skill or do something to better myself. My New Years resolution this year was to do new things, and I did. Jim (father-in-law), Shannon (sister-in-law) and myself all are interested in photography so we enrolled in a class at the local junior college, OTC. I was able to go to that for a few weeks before this all started, but we hadn’t yet got to a lot of the things I was wanting to learn. I had made Shannon let me take some engagement pictures for them last fall, and I hope she doesn’t mind that I’m sharing them, but I wanted to show off a little of what I was wanting to improve upon: Shannon & Kevin’s amateur engagement pictures
I joined a book club. The first year of Ryan’s life I had convinced myself I didn’t have time to read. When we went to Shannon’s wedding in Key West last November, I knew I needed a book for the 4 hours layover. After months of relentlessly torturing my friend Heather for reading Twilight, I asked to borrow it. I bought New Moon in the Miami airport on the way back. I finished all 4 in about 4 weeks. I did have time to read, it just mean less DVR. Book club gave me a chance to hang out with some cool ladies, meet new people and maybe educate myself a little in the meantime. The meetings are only once a month, so I hope it works out I get to go to the next one.
So now the question becomes, what should I learn to do since I apparently have several more hours in my day? The next thing I for sure want to get done is to clean up my iTunes library from switching all of my music to the new laptop. A tedious but very accomplished goal once complete, I’m talking album art and everything. And speaking of music, I upgraded the blog to be able to add songs when I feel like it. This song doesn’t really have any specific meaning, just one of my favorites over the past few months.
Listen and think of some suggestions for things I should learn or things you would like to do if you had more time!
