Desktop Background – September 2012
I was originally going to publish this post yesterday, but I forgot it was a holiday weekend; I wouldn’t want to interrupt the festivities. For me, I had to work this Labor Day. In fact, I’m writing this while looking out over a classroom of exhausted eager students hungry to learn the secrets of web design.
This is only my second semester teaching at a college level, a bucket list experience I never thought I’d be able to do, and I can’t say it’s much like work at all really. I get to hang out with a bunch of educated young adults, pretend like I’m still in college, and talk about two of my favorite subjects: web design and myself… just kidding on that last one… kind of.
I’ve always wanted to be a teacher and I’m glad I have been blessed with the ability to share my knowledge and passion with all of these students who are only a year or two away from blowing me out of the water with their design skills. I’m constantly blown away at the drive and desire these kids have; it’s like watching the future truly being build and developed before my eyes and the best part is knowing that I might influence one or two of these guys and girls to really go out and push themselves beyond their boundaries to become better people overall.
Why all the school talk? Well, it’s September and that usually means most students are back at the grindstone, suffering through boring professors like myself, and counting down the days until Christmas break. So… another month, another desktop background. This one comes from my archives and was shot during a brief morning walk around a farm in my hometown a few years ago. I love the red rusty colored and the texture; you can almost reach out and feel that Tetanus-ridden piece of steel, can’t you?
