Life in Focus
Update on 18 in 2018 Projects
I played around with iMovie for slideshow for my Cabaret Cast Party. It was very simple but it was good practice at playing more with video
Try New Exercise classes: I've tried out free classes at the gym at my work as part of their #30x30StopStroke Challenge in honor of National Stroke Awareness Month. I've done Tabata, Yoga and a new Zumba class.
- We had plans to buy paint for the Spare Room make over but had a mix up with the location of the Sherwin Williams store.
Ask Me Anything
- Jen from Uncreative Crafter Podcast
said: Just curious, so you don’t have to answer this if you don’t want to. As a fellow New Englander, I would say that your mom and brother have Boston/Massachusetts accents. I don’t notice one with you. Do you have any insights into why that is?
