Today was quite an amazing morning as I worked on my classes. I sat outside on the deck with my laptop and morning cup of coffee. As I looked up to see a Bald Eagle diving into the lake to catch his breakfast. The majestic bird flew over my head landing in the front yard on a pole. I ran to see him as he moved on to a tree next door. It was a wonderful excuse to get me off the computer. I was in the middle of syllabus reading and watching my new Animoto video for the eighth time. I also watched the other videos posted by my classmates. I quickly felt a connection to the others in the class by watching their introduction videos. What a great morning, in ‘Dirti Jerzi’!
After another coffee break, I was back to the computer to try and grasp all of the new passwords and programs! My boyfriend was downloading a show that we missed the night before. When the wall behind the bed started to shake, I assumed it was Brett playfully urging me to get off the computer and join him. I realized it was an earthquake when he was in front of me and the walls continued to rumble. Then we got the breaking news about the quake.
I expected this type of action on a daily basis while living in Alaska; however, this metropolis area is not known for much except ‘Snookie‘ and the ‘Situation’! I was glad that I was able to see and feel nature as I worked on my classes today. Who knows what will happen tomorrow!
