Well I know everyone has probably been wondering where I have been. Some of you who follow me on Facebook know I have been a busy “little beaver”. Not only have I been working at “Wally World” as a cashier for the past year and a half or so, but Since January, I have been attending college for Photography. Actually I am going for an Associates degree in Arts and Science/Photography.
It has been a lot of hard work getting back into going to school AND working, but it has been lots of fun and rewarding. After 2 semesters, I have a 3.789 gpa…..and considering I almost dropped Sociology, that is saying something! The good news is that Walmart actually is giving me a $2,000 a year scholarship.
This semester, my middle son decided to go back to college with me. He is going through the same program….As a matter of fact, on Mondays and Wednesdays we are in class all day together! He’s having just as much fun as I am….well I do have Algebra…and it’s definitely not my strong suit. This old brain just can’t wrap around all those x-y problems….And why do I need this for photography again???
I have all 4 of the art teachers as I am taking Photoshop, Black and White Photo Studio 1, Ceramic Dinnerware and Glass blowing….Yes I said glass blowing!! The first 3 I mentioned are the same 3 my son attends with me.
We are creating our own dinnerware. Mine has been truly inspired by my family.
These were our test plates…..
Glass Blowing is an art…and a skill that means burns and broken glass and some wonky looking first tries…But I love it. At first it was working with solid glass
There’s so much more news I need to catch up on. But that will have to wait for another day….Meanwhile, I have homework, and a long day ahead so I’ll have to get to that now…
Hugs and Love to all!
