No "I'm back! I'll blog more now!"
I won't be setting standards for myself on how often I should post.
I won't be struggling to find something to post on those boring days.
So. What I will do is post when I have something to post, and don't worry about it when I don't.
It's so simple; I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier.
So, here I am. And here's this post. And there's some catching up to do.
Photography: I took someone's senior portraits a week or two ago, and I'm taking some family pictures sometime soon. Quite exciting. :D
Birding: I didn't make enough time in my schedule to get the most out of fall migration, which I was disappointed about. But then, one morning, I saw a small flock of Juncos. I'm looking forward to winter. And I'm hoping to get to a certain lake that has some awesome migrating and wintering waterfowl. (Saw two way-out-of-range Trumpeters there last year!)
Crafting, Sewing, etc: ...have been neglected, unfortunately. Some Christmas projects coming up, though. =)
Writing: This year, in addition to English, I'm taking Creative Writing. I really hated it at first because the first unit was mostly writing about yourself, which I found quite difficult and uninspiring. This unit is poetry, which I was a bit unsure about going into, but it's actually quite fun. :D We had to do one assignment creating poems with all different formats. (diamonds, limericks, lanterns, etc.) Here are three I happened to like:
This first one's silly. A limerick:
There once was an amoeba named Fi-fi.
Who ate bacterium and algae.
But the psuedopods couldn't reach,
To the little specks of green on the beach.
Who were, themselves, quite filled with glee.
A 5W (Who, what, where, when, why):
My lovely cat
From my desk,
In the middle of the night,
To warn me of an empty food dish.
And another silly one. A quinzane (a statement of 7 syllables in the first line, and a question spaced out over the second and third lines, with 5 and 3 syllables, respectively):
The squirr'l ran away from me.I was surprised that I was able to muster up a nice-sized range of subjects for ten poems we had to do for that project. From pencils to cats to an amoeba.
Does he think I want
to eat him?
Oh, and anyone with kids or siblings may enjoy this (some of them are geared towards younger children, but others are timeless):
Just use the left-hand navigation to chose a poem, fill it in, and click "create". :D
