I am currently starting to read Ragged Dick by Horatio Alger. I have read something previously of his and I don't recall liking it. Maybe this will be the exception.
I will post photo's latetr of the garage, on the ground and in the trailer to haul off. It is definitely a strange sight not seeing it there. I hope it helps when the new building is moved in tomorrow. Wow. We have been waiting since July 10th and it seems like forever and now it is upon us.
Well, off to read.
I left my camera home in hopes that Danny will take more pics of the garage. It is completely on the ground now with only one wall, the south, in any semblance of a solid piece. They are supposed to start loading it up today to haul off.
I am awaiting my second English class about 10 feet from the door. It is a huge table with comfy chairs around it, so I should be comforatble while I am reading yet another 6 books, right?? LOL
This is a very small area I am sitting in on a hallway with no table in front of me. They have very little room in this building it would appear.
I got the cameras that Euvah sent, a Pentax K-1000 and her little 35 mm and they are exactly what he wanted for the first two cameras. Yay! Thank you, Sis! I am excited about Photography but also VERY nervous because I shake so much I am afraid I will have trouble getting good shots. But I will learn to adapt I am sure.
My Spanish Prof seems to be nice, I already have Spanish homework and should have worked on it last night but was so exhausted, I just vegged and then headed to bed.
I picked up the six books for the first english class, one is the Communist Manifesto, Hard Times by Charles Dickens, The Doll House by Henry Ibsen, Germinal by Emile Something and I cannot remember the other two. I have to go today and pick up the ones from the TU Copy center that are excerpts only. I have read the Dollhouse and did not care much for it, but that at least gives me a leg up on one book.
I guess I will start working on my 1/4 Second Project while I sit here waiting. Y'all have a good day!
My first class is Photography I and I plan to ask him if I can only buy one camera, what camera does he suggest. I am less than 3 feet from the door of the classroom so no chance I will be late.
I left the houose at 8:00, stopped and got coffee and tea and cashed a check and here I am. I was here by 8:57, so I think I can probably leave a little later next time!
The drive was not bad at all, just a little heavy in places but no stoppages, so all in all, good.
My stomach is in knots and I just finished my huge tea that I got on the way out of Okmulgee. Seemed like the thing to do since there are so many signs saying, "Absolutely NO food or Drink!."
Ok, well, I guess I will write more later. Almost time to go in.
Well, finished that class. Looks to be interesting and I think I will like the instructor. Very straight forward and no nonsense with a kind of laid back air to him. I have to find 675 pics, called the 1/4 second project. They have to be interesting and different. Should be interesting coming up with them.
I am now in my next classroom waiting. I believe this is an English class, big surprise, and no one here yet but that should be fixed in short order. I have been sitting in here in the peace and quiet just surfing the web and doing not much.
What a day. Here I go again. The instructor is here, better run.
And with that, I think I will start my homework. Love you guys!
...and then fell on the sofa and slept for two hours. More later! Oh yeah, one last thing, and not least for sure, Danny and Yvonne got me this:
I have taken all of my tests and am now working on my final paper for my one class I have remaining at OSU-Okmulgee. I will turn it in tomorrow and voila! All will be done and I will good till Saturday morning! Yvonne is supposed to help me with my hair, and she, Danny, Jim and C'Cie and Dad are going to my Graduation Reception where I will find out if I won the Outstanding Graduate Award (which I doubt, I was really, really tired when I wrote my one page for it!) and then the Commencement Ceremony follows that immediately.
So that is my week in a nutshell. More later!
We went to Leavenworth the first day over there, what a beautiful little town. All Bavarian architecture and beautiful trees, sloping sidewalks and flowers...flowers everywhere! It is just beautiful.
Next we went to the Grand Coulee Dam. It is the most power dam in the United States, but it is not nearly as impressive looking as the pics I've seen of the Hoover Dam. But it was impressive nonetheless. It was actually very interesting. I am way too tired right now to remember everything though, lol.
On the way home we took the North Cascades Pass which is breathtaking. You would not believe the view and pictures simply cannot do it justice. WHat is more amazing is that the speed limit on that windy, twirly road is 60 MPH. LOL You would be amazed at the view and the speed limit. Shari is a good driver so all was well!
Well, today we are off to Seattle! Can't wait to see it and the Space Needle. Yikes! Only one more full day here. That sucks.
