Today has been the first weekend day I have had off work so far this semester. Not that I am complaining, but it would be nice to have a weekend off once in awhile. I guess I can't say much since I am requesting a four day weekend for Thanksgiving. It will be nice to spend some time with family and friends, since I don't get to see people too often during the semester.
I have also come to the conclusion of where I would like to do my volunteer work for my religion class this semester. I really want to volunteer for a place called the Beach House. It was opened in 1921, and it is Toledo's oldest shelter for homeless women and children. It has, since that time, become a shelter for single fathers and families as well. It sounds like an amazing place for people to get a brand new lease on life. I am hoping they will be able to work with me. If you would like to find out more about The Beach House please go to :

On a super cool note, I went out to WoodChucks last night to celebrate my dear friend's last night bar tending and wanted to get some pictures of karaoke night....Not wanting to possibly damage my nice, new camera, I took my old point and shoot. Today when I went to look at the pictures from last night I discovered that there were also pictures I took at the Wood County Fair earlier this summer. I completely forgot they were even on my camera. I was so wow'd by it that I am posting some of the pics and edits that I did.
All-in-all, it's been a productive schoolwork day as well as letting me have a little time to relax (and nurse a hangover).
I hope you enjoy.
Until next time....
Real life, art, and other fun stuff
Life is a journey, not a destination. Sure, we have all heard it before and it has become a cliche in our society. There is truth in that statement though. When one road is closed (and anyone that drives in and around the Toledo area can verify this), there is always another route waiting to lead you to where you need to be. I've learned a lot over the past few years and I plan to document both the good times and the bad. Hopefully, through it all, I can help some other poor, lost, lonely soul that is wandering on the road called life.
