New collage.

Hey, everyone! Better late than never, right? (Although according to my clock, I have one more minute until the next theme begins. *cough*) My name is Penny. I am 24 years old and currently living outside of Dallas, Texas. Someday my introduction might include a husband and children, but for now all I can tell you about are my exciting adventures being a recent college graduate. I double-majored in theology and psychology at a small, private school here in Dallas. I'm currently applying to post-graduate programs in clinical psychology across the country. When I'm not busy doing paper work, I enjoy hanging out with friends and doing new things.

Speaking of new things, I've never been part of a community before on LiveJournal (not really, anyway) and I've never done a photo challenge, so... here it goes! I debated all week what to post and decided that my new year's resolutions would have to do. :) I wish I owned a cool camera, but I don't. In fact, this photo was snagged with my sister's Nikon CoolPix. :)

New collage.
New challenge.
New day.
New year.
New resolutions!


Hi, I'm Sofia.  I'm 26 and I live in Philadelphia with my boyfriend.  I work in advertising buying stock photography (among other things) so I really do get to stare at photos all day.  I've been thinking about trying Project 365, but I know i'm not that dedicated yet.  My cousin Fayelle (ladygoat) did 365 last year and I really enjoyed seeing her pics....she sent me this Project 52 to try, so here it goes! 
Also I'm using my new camera that I got for Christmas.  Its a Canon Powershot SX200 IS and its awesome!  I just haven't figured out how to use every option yet, but I'll get there soon.

New Calendar: Last year I got a page a day calendar (1000 things to see before you die) for Christmas, and I kept it at my desk at work.  Luckily in late December a vendor at work decided to send us a box of random things (like puzzles, calendars, notepads).  Inside a 2010 page-a-day, this one is Tropical Paradise.  Its kind of nice to come to work everyday and see what awesome place I'd rather be than at my desk.

Side Note:  I almost didn't post this because Faye (ladygoat) also posted a calendar, but since this was my first idea I went with it.  I guess when you are cousins thinking alike is bound to happen.
notes from a small island


I'm a middle-aged community nurse specialist, living on the Isle-of-Man - a small island in the Irish Sea. I'm 'British' to those outside Britain - it's easier for you to get a grip on my spelling, lifestyle etc. - but I am not English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish - I am Manx.

Our island is likely to crop up quite often in any pictures I post here! It features quite a bit in my 365 project posts - I will complete week 44 of this tomorrow. (If you are interested, it is tagged in my journal, and also there is a link, just to the pictures, in my sidebar...)

I have a husband (speakr2customrs), and a 21 year old daughter who is a post-grad studying law in York. We have one cat - one of him is enough... My mother and other family members might feature occasionally - as might church.

This time it is church.

This photo shows the new workbooks and teacher's book for the group of 4 -7 year olds that I teach in Sunday School -

New Year at Sunday School.
