Hello and welcome! My name is Sheila and I enjoy taking photographs. Here are some of the moments I have captured.
If you are interested in checking out more of my photography, check out my completed Project 365 (shellyn365.tumblr.com) or Project 52 (shellyn52.tumblr.com).
The entrance arch at Ek’ Balam, located in Yucatan, Mexico. According to our guide, Pedro, this arch was used for ceremonies and give offerings.
Whilst in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, I had a wonderful cup of organic and freshly roasted coffee at a local cafe called La Bendecida.
i’m a graduate … again!
Nursing is an art;
and if it is to be made an art,
it requires as exclusive a devotion,
as hard a preparation,
as any painter’s or sculptor’s work;
for what is the having to do with
dead canvas or cold marble,
compared with having to do with the
living body - the temple of God’s spirit?
It is one of the Fine Arts;
I had almost said
the finest of the Fine Arts (Florence Nightingale)
For the past six months, I have been a student in the Winnipeg Critical Care Education Program so that I can become a nurse on an intensive care unit (ICU). I have never studied or worked so hard in my life, but I am so glad that I did. The past few months have been the most frustrating and demanding times of my life. As I embark on this new chapter of my career, I feel confident that I have made the correct decision. Trust me, there were many moments when I considered quitting all together. Even though I have been a practicing nurse for over nine years, being an ICU nurse will bring on new challenges and rewards.
I would like to thank my family and friends for being there for me. Thank you for forcing me to take a short breaks, putting up with my grumpiness and tears, and most especially, encouraging me when I was feeling doubtful. Without awesome people like you in my life, I would not be the person I am today. For this, I am forever grateful.
For Christmas, I gave my brother a 1000 piece puzzle. It only took him 15 hours to complete the entire thing.
Hear ye, hear ye! Let it be known that I, Sheila Lyn, did not burn the angel-shaped cookies this year!
Every year, I make sugar cookies (in various holiday shapes) for our big Christmas dinner. For some reason, I often burn the angels. This year, the angels came out okay! Huzzah!
wide aperture + colourful Christmas lights + cardboard cut-out = fun with photography!
