Maybe I need a new section for my pics of insects. This little monster landed in front of me while sitting in Victoria Park. Not sure what it is yet, and I'm reading The Forever War right now, and don't want to look for it. Bonus points to anyone who finds it before I update this post.
Are you familiar with insects in Ontario, Canada? I've found, and photographed a few recently, and can't seem to find any images that lead to a positive identification except for the spider.
Here's a nice pic of a beetle found near my tomato plants. It looks similar to a leaf-footed bug, but I'm not sure what it is. Squash bug?
Next is another unknown beetle. Looks similar to pics of a Soldier Beetle, or possibly Pennsylvania Leatherwing. What do you think?
Here's a pic from when I was in 4RCR. I believe this was taken shortly after the Paardeberg Ball.
I really wish that I could figure out a way to stop losing stuff. First my ereader, which is still missing, and now I've lost an audio patch cable that i use all of the time. I searched for hours for the former, and an hour today for the latter, but I had no luck. It isn't like i have milions of places for either of them to be, and i didnt lose either of them with their accessories. I still have my ebook reader case, so its not like it fell from my bag. I also didnt lose my portable speaker or its power supply, so WTF, WORLD? WTF
Hey London. I have had to search for London, Ontario's hashtag more than once, and I think I know why. It's because it sucks. I understand that #london wasn't available, but #ldnont is unintuitive. It could be improved in a few ways.
Oops! I got busy and forgot to write my daily gratutudes. I could go back and post-date some, but I'd rather do some reading for this Saturday's exam.
- I am grateful that my extra word in German has translated into a 95% on the verbal component of my mid-term examination.
- I am grateful for the time that the internet saves me during research and extra course work. Especially for foreign languages, the internet gives access to amazing resources.
- I am grateful for the freedom to say nearly whatever I like, without fear of persecution. Mostly.
A bit late on this one! Oh well, here goes...
Am I allowed to reapeat any gratutudes? Ever? What if I'm super grateful? I'm not sure how long I can think of original gratutudes, but we'll see!
In class this evening, my professor who by day is a clinical child-psychologist re-challenged us to try the 3 gratitudes method of increasing positive affect. I sort of scoffed at the idea on the inside, I think because of the [long pause] on reflection I don't know why.
At the end of that same class, I made reference to #neknomination and how I would like to see it turned around in to a force for good. Apparently I'm a bit disconnected because this has already been done and redone as, among other things, #RAKnomination.
