I have been playing with Photoshop. Here was some of my creations.


Frank and I painted our living room this weekend. We worked together and got it done it one day, we make a great team. It was actually not as bad as we had made it out to be.

Yes I know, I do pick great colors. And to brag a little I also made those curtains. I actually made 10 of them. It got a little old by the time I was finished.

I am glad I have this blog because I need to vent. I am working on my Masters in Reading. Last semester I had 12 hours of classes that I really enjoyed. All the material actually helped me in my teaching and was very beneficial. So far this semester only one of my courses is worthwhile. As far as the other two, I either know what they are teaching me, or I can't see how it would EVER matter. I feel like I am wasting time and energy, and MONEY!! I almost forgot that I am paying good money for these classes.
I know FSU's graduate program is new and they are working out the kinks, but some of these courses are just ridiculous.
Another thing that irks me is that I want to have a 4.0. I plan on going on to get my doctorate and a 4.0 should make a good impression on getting accepted. With these courses I am not "feeling" the assignments therefore, I am not putting forth my best effort. I know this is my fault and I need to straighten up.
I guess I will just keep telling myself "Just do it, do it right, get the A and forget it"
It's still early, maybe it will turn around.

I went to my first Zumba class tonight! It was really fun. I love dancing as a form of excercise. I still know all the moves to Sweatin to the oldies. If you havne't tried Zumba you should.. This is a YouTube clip from the Today Show on Zumba.

I made a photostory for my graduate class. I used Microsoft Photostory 3 software. It was really easy to use, and free. I can think of a lot of ways to use it in my class. I had to publish it to YouTube. Here is the link
