Day 19: Working Hard or Hardly Working?

I want it to go on record that I truly loathe the statement, "working hard or hardly working". Yes, I really do. It's one of those statements you often hear out of the mouth of a particular person believing him or herself to be a total laugh riot, when in fact they come across as a jackass. They're usually the same type of person who says "anyhoo", which also is enough to make me puke. I'd like to send them all back in time to WWII and leave them in place of the Jews in the concentration camps.

Years ago, I'd have never cared where I studied, not that I studied very much as high school student. Obviously enough to graduate, but not enough to really call my tenure as a JHS student a success. Usually studying consisted of loud music, television, and conversations with friends while books would be spread out in front of me. Yeah...enough said.

Several years ago, when I got my happy ass back into classes, I knew that sort of habit wouldn't work for me. With having a designated study area in mind, I took over one of the extra rooms at home and brought in some stuff. Featured here is the table I use as a desk, my Macbook, assorted accessories and my beloved "Nookie Jab" jar from a wonderful friend.

Though not all of my studying is done here. For those of you who are aware of my "usual Friday place of business", I often find myself in downtown Jackson at the Jackson Coffee Co, warming myself with a tasty beverage. Many a day was spent there applying myself to learning anatomy & physiology, biochemistry, microbiology and so on and so forth.

A sort of boring post, I must say, but I really felt no major inspiration to yank out my camera. Maybe that's why I'll never truly succeed as a photographer, but's not the goal of the project.

  2. In fact it's a miniature lamp from the Christmas Story. Hehe
