Graduation Picture...

...So this is me getting my diploma. Some days I think I should have been happy with it. Mostly when I am struggling through tests at TU. I love TU, don't get me wrong, but I am really struggling with one of my classes and I have no idea why. Anyway, here is the pic of me graduating from OSU-Okmulgee.

Things have been crazy the past couple of weeks. I am almost certain I failed my Brit Lit I test. If I made a "D" I will be happy and that is just sad. I read EVERYTHING and participate in class and all, I just could not finish the essay on the test because I write too slow. I may ask if I can type next time. :-(

Dad is doing better, but he has to have laser surgery on his eye on the 29th of October. He has Retinal Vein Occlusion and Macular edema. They said they are surprised that he can see so well. Thank you, God! Anyway, it is a small procedure, so it will not take long and they said it will be fine and not to worry. But how can you not? They say it just needs a little boost as it IS trying to heal on its own. They will smooth the eye and make it round again. At least that is the way I understand it.

The fence is still not finished. If I can cut out some time tomorrow, I will help Dad do that then. The fence just needs to be stretched. Instead of just laid against the poles. We have to go get the top rail and then stretch the fence. All done. There is still some stuff in the backyard, so maybe I can get it mocved in tomorrow, too.

Danny and Jerry rebuilt the White Thing and got it in the building for Dad last week. He is so excited! Thanks, Guys!

Well, I need to get off here and do some school work, so y'all have fun!

So these are my tech shots.

I am missing the one of the photo on the instructors door because it did not come out. :-( See if you can guess which is which. Remember, one at noon on a sunny day, one at noon on a cloudy day, 1 incandescent and 1 at dusk.

This one is neither a tech shot, nor my final. I was going to use this as my final but I goofed up. See it? Anyway, I like the pic just the same. Just need to not goof it up.

So, here are my first three B&W's

The first one is a closeup of the gate.
The second one is of the marigolds in the backyard.
The third one is of the gates, but not a closeup. Ok, So I have one more, this is my fave:

I had to take 5 tech shots. 1 picture of a pic on the Instructors door, 1 pic at dusk (Ok, so it was dusk or dawn and we all know I do not do Dawn!), 1 pic at noon on a sunny day, 1 pic at noon on an overcast day and 1 inside under incandescent light. Of those 5, only three, MAYBE 4 turned out. :-(

So, that is my world. These four pics will be my final set for critique. I may choose one more, if I do, I will post it.

After much prodding...

...(Thanks, Sis!), I am posting again. I got all of my essays turned in and have received a grade on one, A-/B+. Don't ask what it means, I am clueless. I did not change my major though I was seriously reconsidering it last Monday night!

I am doing better now and am enjoying my photography class a lot. We are developing and printing our Black and White photos now. It is interesting.

Dad is pretty sick, but I cannot get him to go to the doctor. He says he is weak and dizzy. So, I have been having him checked on while I am at school. Thank you, Danny and Wanda!

I just read The Phiosophy of Manufacture by Andrew Ure. Do not put it on your reading list, it is merely a love story for manfacturing. This guy really loves the process and discusses how the peolpe can rest most of the time. Yeah, right.

I am on to Hard Times by Charles Dickens and I am told it sucks. So that is where I am at now.
I am also reading Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare which is not bad. I am in Act IV at the moment.

Ok, So I have now blogged about my life. LOL Y'all have fun!
