I see that 10 days have gone by since my last update. During that time there’s been a few things that I’ve wanted to photograph, but either the lighting hasn’t cooperated, or I found myself without the camera. I need to get better about bringing the camera home with me. I did have a birthday, and I think it will be my last. Well hopefully not my last physically, but the last that I will make a point of celebrating. As a kid you have a right to think that your birthday will be special, but as an adult the world serves you whatever is coming, whether it is your birthday or not.
Surrounding my birthday were two tests for my EMT class. Monday night we had the final for the class which was one of the weirder finals that I’ve taken. It was so weird that the teacher threw out 8 of the questions after we took it. Maybe computers shouldn’t be used to actually create the test questions. (The teacher didn’t review the test until after we had taken it.) Fortunately the certification test that we took Wednesday was more to the point. We needed at least an 80% grade to get certified, and I passed with a 97%. So I’m now an EMT! Which means I have my Monday and Wednesday nights back, so hopefully I’ll be better about these updates.
Today’s picture is Aesthetic Design’s Main Street Christmas tree. All the Main Street businesses in Ferndale have their own Christmas trees which are decorated by different classes of children. Some trees are themed to the sponsoring business, but our tree decorations have no relation web design or photography. Our tree was decorated by pre-schoolers, and the adult supervisors had a major task just getting the kids to hang the decorations on the tree and not run out into the street.
