“A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and a man cannot live without love.” – Max Muller
It’s good to have hobbies. We need to be doing activities in our lives that involve something other than work. As a elementary school teacher it is easy to be consumed by work. I could easily stay up all hours of the night doing things for work. While I used to do that, I found out that it didn’t really do me that much good staying up all night. I would be exhausted while teaching, and I wasn’t at my best. I found out that working all the time didn’t do me any good, and I needed to spend some of my time doing non-work-related things for me. My main hobby is photography. I try to go out and practice around Charlotte on the weekends. I try to read as often as possible. Of course, I love writing. Photography and writing are the two ways that I express myself.
Another hobby that I have is I love to work out in my yard. Last year I planted a vegetable garden for the first time. I have been trying to improve the look of my front yard. This time of the year is great because my Azelea’s and other things I have planted are blooming right now. I love being outside. I enjoy working in the yard, and seeing the results of what I have planted. Hopefully later this summer I will have some produce, and I will see more flowers blooming in the yard as well.
I took these photos with my phone. I used to not post photos that I took with my phone. I was looking through my reel, and I noticed that I have some pretty awesome photos on it. I figured why not show it off. My phone is a Samsung S22 Ultra. It has a pretty awesome camera on it, and it takes great photos.
