My whole life I’ve pretty much been the smart, geeky, loner. At least according to where I’m from. Whatever. That’s life. I like to keep to myself and not let people in. That said, I’ve decided to start a blog. Well, I decided that three months ago. I’ve found multiple reasons why I’ve neglected writing and updating. I got married in August and I’ve been playing catch-up with things sense. I hosted Thanksgiving and had a ton of stuff to do with that. By time I get down time to actually blog it’s the only time I have time to spend with my husband so we watch tv as opposed to me blogging (because for some reason I can’t do them both at once???) NO MORE!!!!! When I logged in yesterday to post for a few photo project I’m doing I found Zero to Hero and thought it would be a great push to get me moving. A few days late to the game, I thought I would try to catch up while moving forwards. Here goes.
“Day” 1: Introduce yourself
This is from my “About” page so I’m not sure it really counts but here is the overview of who I am:
I got married recently and live in the Finger Lakes region of New York with my husband Bryan, cat Abby, and our dog Seneca. For my job I work on miscellaneous coding projects. In what free time I have I work on our house, run, hike, camp, quilt, knit, and take pictures. Right now I’m focusing on taking a breath and doing more things that I like.
That’s pretty much who I am. The why I’m here started as a place to show off my photography . And by show off I mean push myself to learn how to use my new camera. I used to be really into photography. Pretty much my whole life. And then at some point technology progressed from film and a darkroom and I didn’t bother to keep up. Now I’m working on relearning ISOs, f-stops, white balance, etc. I’m not really sure where this blog will take me, but I’m looking forward to the ride.
Day 4: Explore the Neighborhood
Basically, find other wordpress people and follow them. I looked at the people doing Zero to Hero and mostly followed a few that made me laugh or seemed to have similar interests. I also did find friends and am following a few people that I know.
As for my physical neighborhood, I live in the same area as I grew up. While growing up, every Sunday my family and I would go for a hike at a local nature center. My parents still do this. Once Bryan and I got Seneca, we started taking her up for Sunday hikes. When I was a kid this is where things felt comfortable, like home. My sister and I used to make little houses out of moss for the salamanders. Technically red newts, but we would call them sallys.
Today we took Seneca for a hike in all of the snow we have had in the past few days. We wore our snowshoes which was tons of fun.
This was us, exploring our neighborhood
