11 Favorite Photos of ’11

I try to take pictures of things that are memorable, as you’re aware. But, I’m also a little retentive on how I organize them, too. In my files, I order them by year and by month. So I decided to go back and see what I thought some of my top photos were; either because…

2:17:36

I did it. I completed my half marathon with a time of 2:17:36. I had set out with a goal in my head of finishing in 2:10:00 – which would have been a 10:00 minute/mile pace. Before photo: We look excited to run 13.1 miles, don’t we? So jolly. 🙂 So close. I’ve found, however,…

200 Blog Posts and 13.1 Miles Later

You’re all still with me. Really? I had this idea as I noted that I was getting close to a 200th blog post. Only two or so years into my little home on the web, I realize that I’ve found what I love about doing this; they’re my thoughts, stories, and life, unfiltered. Pen to…

Oh, to be Popular. #199

This post is my 199th blog post on Schnikism.com – I have something special planned for #200. Look for it tomorrow morning, bright and early. 🙂 I’ve been trying to organize my Flickr account. Being obsessed with statistics, I was also looking at which photos have been the most popular, the results are interesting, humorous…

Through My Eyes

I’ve been doing a little digging in the photography world. Been trying to understand composition and trying to capture the things I see in my mind’s eye. I know that a camera can’t do it all justice, but I thought I would share some of the things I’ve been snapping. I’d love your opinion. 🙂…

Be Thankful; I Am.

I could write something super sentimental but I thought there’s a much better way to tell you what I’ve been thankful this year. Since I like to take pictures of just about everything, I thought I’d show you. Some Sports Firsts: I’ve been fortunate to attend two major sports events this year. My hometown teams,…

Books I want to read…

I was reading through my RSS reader and found this: 100 Notable Books of 2011 Having perused their list, I now have a reading list for 2012, and thanks to my public library (www.multcolib.org) I have them on order. Now I just have to wait to get them. And then read them during one of…

Are You There? It’s Me, Schnik.

I. Love. Twitter. There, I’ve said it. I love the instant-communicative nature of webchat. I love that I can pose a question to a news anchor, while they’re on air, and they’ll respond to me during the commercial, or sometimes, when they’re not on camera. That’s instant power. There’s something about that connection that just…

Charting Course

Or conversely, changing direction? Recently I posted a plea for advice as I was in a place where I had to make a decision, whether to subject myself to more schooling or to take my marbles and run. I choose to subject myself to more torture; however, this means that I have to change majors…

Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…
