House of Dogs ๐Ÿพ

Australian Shepherd Pit Bull and Great Dane Mix Gordon Setter Danish-Swedish Farm Dog

At home, I have four lovely, happy dogs that are some of the most rambunctious animals that Iโ€™ve seen. Thereโ€™s an Australian Shepherd, a Pit Bull mix, a Beagle and a Gordon Setter. They are all rescues, we never go to breeders. It feels much better to give a home to a dog who needs one than to purchase one. They all have their unique quirks, good and not-so-good. The Beagle nudges your arm for attention, and will climb over any other one of the dogs if he sees you giving them extensive attention. The Gordon Setter will roll over for a belly rub the instant you start petting him, and he barks at the other dogs when theyโ€™re playing outside. The Pit Bull mix is still skinny since we just got him, but heโ€™s improving. Sometimes, he runs in circles around one of the dogs when he knows he is getting a treat. And the Australian Shepherd, well, he has silent barks sometimes. His mouth will bark, but no sounds come out. Itโ€™s amazing to see that animals can have their own quirks just like humans.

Teaching Technical Terminology ๐Ÿ“ฑ

Woman on Phone

When it comes to technology, some people struggle with it, while it just comes naturally for others. Iโ€™m one of those natural people. It takes only a short amount of time for me to figure certain topics based on technology, such as hardware modifications, networking, coding, et cetera. But what can be quite difficult is trying to reword an explanation. It can be a challenge to make technical words simpler. But in the end, you learn some analogies for yourself to use in the future. For some, especially the elderly, you can explain something to them, like how to operate their TV remote, for example, but they might forget what you told them and foul up the TV. That is why it is a good idea to write down the directions in detail, but not too much detail. They should know exactly what you want them to do without being confused.

Photography ๐Ÿ“ธ

In 2019, I got a Canon camera for Christmas. It was my first manual-style camera, with adjustable focus, shutter speed, apeture and other features. Since then, I have gotten a knack for taking photos from different angles, distances, and I almost 100% refuse to use the full automatic setting. If you'd like to learn more about me and photography and see some of my pictures, I am making a webpage for just that, so please stay tuned!
