My head has all these half baked ideas slowly making their way to paper and even slower to the computer. I did listen to most of conference and have comments about various talks. Roland has finished his schooling and I feared he might become board, but we have projects lined up with even greater interruptions which I am hoping to explain.
I'm certain that I mentioned somewhere that I am a slow reader and an even slower processor. I'm grateful that I have only one class this time around as it looks like it will be a challenge. The material isn't necessarily boring as much as it is time consuming. The class itself is on investments and the first week specifically covers real estate and property ownership and what all is included. Fortunately I have Roland to help me.
There are many terms I don't know, many laws I don't understand. Of course "possession" varies from state to state. For instance, Myrtle Creek is much more lenient about property rights and interference than was Salt Lake. For instance properties must be maintained in all the cities within Salt Lake County, although I think there are some cities that are stricter than others and possibly send enforcers around with a ruler to measure each lawn to make certain that the grass has been cut down to the very inch it should be. I know people who have been cited for "overgrown" lawns and weeds. In this part of Oregon, we are not even supposed to mow our lawns during fire season - which often includes more than just the months of summer.
Thus far my assignments have had to be 600+ words, but this time around I'm expected to have 750+. I can do that if I use personal examples as I have many of them. Trying include personal examples written in third person just feels weird. The instructions don't say it has to be in third person. So I'm doing it in first. I'll let you know how it goes provided that I can find the time. I hope to blog more about what seems important to me and don't have to neglect it researching a topic that I don't find as interesting.
