Feeling Mediocre

July 16, 2008

I can’t help it sometimes. I look at how well other people do things and compare myself to them. I don’t know why I do this, but I do. The only outcome of it is that I end up feeling mediocre. I don’t feel that I do anything great. I don’t [Keep Reading]

My Window Works

Alone in a Crowd

July 8, 2008

Last week when I went to the Canada Day Festival, I went by myself. I can sit and watch the bands perform all day long. I like to go to the different stages and see the local up-and-coming talent, as well as the headliners. I sometimes have a hard [Keep Reading]

On-line Time Limited

July 7, 2008

I feel a need to get on-line everyday. Unfortunately, the summer is here and my online access is now somewhat restricted. You see, I don’t have the Internet at home. I have an old and out-dated computer that I use solely for word processing. But I [Keep Reading]

Learning Stops in the Summer
