Today I put the photoshoping skills that I have picked up over my time doing fandom stuff to use for Real Life business stuff and made a cover photo for my FB midwifery page.

St Berry Hello
I switched laptops last year and moved most of my files onto the new one, and with all the stress of bad work situations I didn't have time to do anything with graphics so it's just now that I realized that none of my screencaps, textures, ect got moved.

Does anyone on my f-list have screencaps from the "Alice" mini?

There are a couple of ties for this round of Rumblr, if you could take a minute and go vote. You don't even have to be a member of the comm, just tell them what you think.

It's been over a year since I've really done any icon making, but there's nothing like a good kick in the paint to get back in the game!

Come join in the fun!

My laptop has developed an odd sort of hum.

I do not like this.

9th-Jan-2014 01:22 pm - 1,041 - In which I ask for money
I have no problem fund raising for other people. Give me someone trying to raise money for a trip, or medical bills, or whatever, and I have no problem going up to anyone and talking them into donating something.

But turn the tables and asking for myself? I become petrified. Why would anyone want to give me money.

So here I am, screwing up my courage and putting myself out there...

I need $2,000 to attend the Midwifery Today conference. This will cover the conference fee, a hotel room, travel costs, and food. If you want to help out, stop by my Go Fund Me page or feel free to signal boost.

Forget everything I said in the last post - I'M IN!!!

Kansas here I come!

(also, if anyone knows of somebody in the Leavenworth area that would be willing to trade a spare room for housework and cooking, please point them in my direction.)

My resolutions for this year all boil down to communicate more.

The LJ part of it is: post something everyday - it doesn't have to be profound or soul searching, it just needs to be words.

SO I guess I'm updating once a month now?

The apprenticeship continues to go well; I've been moving through the skill testing portion and am taking on more responsibility - I even helped with a catch (it was hour 26 and we didn't think mom was ready to push so I was left alone, then I started to see the head and was stuck in a spot where I couldn't move)!

One of the reasons I haven't been spend much time on LJ is because this program has a tuition, which I've been trading for yard work. It works out to 13 hours a week that I have to fit in around prenatals and births, so my free time has gone down to almost zero.

However... you could help me get back some of that free time! I've posted a crowd-funding campaign to help raise the cost of one year of apprenticeship.

I'm also trying to keep up with a video blog about my time in Utah.

"One Night With The King"
St Berry Hello
After talking with my course coordinator and several other students, and a LOT of praying, I think my best course of action is to switch over to independent study. This will give me more time to finish the course work, but I will change from a Texas Agency candidate to a Portfolio-Evaluated-Process (or PEP) student in regards to the NARM exam (the big exam that gets you the final licensing approval).

So more work on the practical side but more time to do it; while getting less stress on the educational side - I'd call that a fair trade.

It also means that the restrictions fora preceptor are loosened, so I'm going to start calling midwives I may have had to pass over before.
