Well I actually have nothing to do. I'm not home so I can't do my usual things around the house or online but I can come on to DA at least and it's been good to catch up on messages after being away for about 5 odd days.
I'm here at my job network, I am required to come in 2 times a week 9-4:30pm to do some voluntary yet compulsory work. Usually when I do this I get to go and work in the primary school office but this time I am stuck writing articles for a local paper. I thought it would be a fun opportunity that could land me a job but it turns out it's not for a well known paper and it's a free one that comes out monthly. So although I could be published which would be cool I won't get very much opportunity for a permanent role. So it is a waste of my time. I only write and send 1 article a day and I can usually do it in my first hour depending on what I am writing about. I don't do any more than that as I sometimes don't have anything to write about. I've got a few articles in reserve and I will be in Apollo Bay this coming weekend so I will have another thing to write about. It would be OK if we got paid a little something for our time but that's not how it works. Oh well, more DA time for me
Some things quickly that have been happening. I went and saw Queen + Adam Lambert last Friday and it was amazing! No one can replace Freddie of course but Adam did a fine job.
Other than that I've just been working on and off, right now obviously I'm off again since I'm at this place wasting time but next month I'll be back at it again for a few weeks.
Photography wise I've been trying to take photos of different things. But don't worry I still have so much to edit and post here of all the lovely animals so things won't change too much

Features from my faves
Thanks to those who have donated points to me Do you work at the zoo and/or with animals?
No, I don't work at the zoo or with animals. I just happen to live very close to the zoo so go there a fair bit.
I work in a call centre, very boring T_T Although currently now I am at the head office for the company I work for so all is good right now How did you get to pet all those animals?
When I go on holidays, some zoos offer programs where you can do these things but it costs money. With the big cats, a few hundred dollars. The photos with the koala, snake and baby gator for example, were $15 or so at Australia Zoo, they just take your photo Can I use your artwork in one of my creations?
Please ask first! Don't assume I will just say yes. I am less inclined to do so or will get annoyed if you just say you are taking my work for your purposes.
I don't bite, depending what it is, I will more than likely allow it and maybe even flattered that you would like to use my work for a ref If you agree to me using your work, what do you ask for in return?
All I ask for is some credit and recognition, so link back where you got it from and of course a link to your finished product as I would love to see your work If I have created a drawing/painting etc referenced off of your work, can I sell it?
This is a good question I got asked. I figure if it is something like pencil work, watercolour, oil painting, charcoal etc, then it is your work. I wouldn't have a problem with you selling it as a print or the original as you put the effort into it, I just gave some help
If it's a banner or poster where you have just put my work onto it, then no, I wouldn't like that very much.Do you have any tips for taking photos?
Yes I've written an article for beginners on how to do zoo photography. You can see the article here --> www.bubblews.com/news/32917-zo…****Great artists I have met**** ****More great artists that you should check out****
