Erin Pavlina writes about The Power of Talent.

I’ve recently found an interest in fashion photography that has caused me to watch 5.5 seasons of America’s next top model and one season of each Brittan’s Next Top Model and Australia’s next top model.  Also feeding my curiosity is this Article: How to Do an Editorial Fashion Photography Spread.

Is there a formula—some mix of love, work, and psychological adaptation—for a good life? For 72 years, researchers at Harvard have been examining this question, following 268 men who entered college in the late 1930s through war, career, marriage and divorce, parenthood and grandparenthood, and old age. Here, for the first time, a journalist gains access to the archive of one of the most comprehensive longitudinal studies in history. Its contents, as much literature as science, offer profound insight into the human condition—and into the brilliant, complex mind of the study’s longtime director, George Vaillant.” From the Incredible article, What makes us Happy?

Three Things I’m Tired of

– Cleaning puppy pee off the floor
Jasmine is getting better at letting us know when she wants to go out, but she’s still a baby and accidents happen. Still – tired of it!

– Work
I am so tired of hating my job and doing nothing about it, ya know? I need to stop talking about doing something about it and actually do it. It’s not just that though. These last two weeks have been very…blah.

– Cool Weather

Now, don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been cold, but it’s been on the cool side the last few days. Bring on the +20°C weather, please!

Three Things I’m Grateful for

– Tile Floors
See #1 above.

– That I have a job
Seriously, there are a lot of layoff going on. Trust me, I of all people know that better then I wish I did. I’ve very lucky to have a job, with plenty of hours, making decent wages. These things are not lost on me, as much as I hate the job.

– Money

This week is a pay week, which is always good, but some other money related things have fallen into place this week too, and that takes a bit of worry off my mind.

Three Things I’m Excited About

– Apple Blossom Festival
It’s this weekend, and it’s always a good time. Fireworks, parade, friends, family, crowds…Awesome. It’s supposed to rain, but that’s ok – I have an umbrella.

– My Brother’s Wedding
It’s still several months away, but I am so excited about it. A trip on an airplane, going somewhere I’ve never been to before, seeing my brother….all great things to be excited about!

See #3 (way) above. Bring on the hot weather! Also, I bought my first air conditioner, so I’m ready for those sticky, unbearable hot days, too.

Feel free to join in!
