I have become quite good at landscape and portrait photography. I started with an entry-level 35 mm DSLR and a couple of kit lenses. It was not long before people were asking me to take pictures at birthday parties and for graduations. I had a couple ask me to take some pictures of them when they got engaged. The next step was someone asking me to take pictures at their wedding. There was no way I was doing that. I think that wedding photography is an art that should best be left to those who do it the best. I promptly let them know that I was no wedding photographer.
I read the trade magazines for photographers. There is one about wedding photography and portrait photography. I like the sections about portraits, but do not like the ones about taking pictures at weddings. I see the sample images in the articles and they are really good. Continue reading
I am a very private person by nature, so not too many people know that I have herpes. My doctor knows, my husband knows, and my best friend is the only other person who understands what I have been through. She is actually the one who helped me find a better way of dealing with the outbreaks that were occurring every year or so. I was taking medication, but it did not stop them from happening. She had heard of natural remedies to help with this, so she looked online and found the Admit One VIP website.
This site is chalk full of information not only about herpes itself, but also about the different ways that it can be treated. Some people are extremely comfortable with just doing what their doctor recommends. I don’t happen to be one of those people though. Continue reading
Most of the work I do for these courses is done at my desk while I am on the clock, but a couple of nights per week I am attending one of the business schools in Singapore. I need to get a bit more grounding in Finance and accounting for my job, in fact the first thing that I noticed when I got to this place was that just about every person who has a top level job here is also a CPA or certified public accountant. They hired me because I was qualified to do the job that was open, but it was pretty easy to see that the way forward was going to close up pretty quickly unless I had some greater qualifications. I could not go a lot further up the corporate ladder unless I put in the work to get some notice from the people who make the decisions.
It is just one of those things that you need to think about if you are serious about going to the top of the pyramid. There is a way forward in every course, but it often requires you to put in extra work. In fact the job I am doing right now is not all that taxing and I am looking for ways to prove that I can do more. The classes I am taking are not even all that difficult for me to manage, especially since a lot of what I am learning in class is stuff that I had already learned on the job. It would have been possible for my boss to probably have just said that I already knew some of this stuff I guess, because he would have looked at it and seen that it was exactly the same stuff I do routinely.
