After deciding to draw in a note book for 20 days I  came across different problems and solutions. First off I found it very difficult to take time out of my day to draw every day, since I am up till 11 o' clock every night doing homework anyways. To fit this into my day I decided to wake up 30 minutes early every morning. Instead of waking up around 6:20 I was waking up around 5:40. Then that wasn't good because I was sleep deprived and that snooze bar was just aching to be hit. Once I started drawing during the lunch periods did my mornings get a little later. And then Thanksgiving break!! Time for drawing to my extent...nope. Only 2 days into my lovely 9 day break someone (me) just decided to slam my toe into a closing door causing 2 fractures and I don't even know how many hairline fractures (not to mention a taken off Big Toe nail). So after 2 days in the ER and coming in and out because of pain meds all I did was eat, sleep, and do the massive amounts of homework over the break(2 essays, 3 hours of reading, + a lot more). So in conclusion try something for 20 to 30 days but if something comes up, don't sweat it. 

I am very sorry that i didn't post any pics of the drawings but in my opinion they're not the best.

<![CDATA[3 reasons why you SHOULD get a dog ]]>Sun, 29 Nov 2015 20:49:49 GMThttp://noideasatall.weebly.com/blog/3-reasons-why-you-should-get-a-dog
  1. Dogs can change your mood
Dogs make you happy when you wake up to a smiling furry face who loves you to their hearts content. “Spending just 15-30 minutes with your dog can help you feel more calm and relaxed, reducing stress and increasing happiness. Playing with your pup increases your brain’s levels of dopamine and serotonin, both of which are neurotransmitters associated with pleasure and tranquility.”   (http://barkpost.com/17-reasons-why-a-dog-would-make-your-life-more-awesome/)

    2) Dogs can help your children!
Studies have shown that kids that have grown up with a dog have less pet allergies. And children who grow up with dogs have a lower risk of developing eczema than those who have cats or no dogs at all. Dogs also help with healing quicker “In fact, humans with pooches who suffered from heart attacks were twice as likely to fully recover than those without!”. Since dogs help with healing kids will have better school attendance. “...children from dog-owning families have better school attendance due to better overall health and less sickness from having a pup at home.” (http://barkpost.com/17-reasons-why-a-dog-would-make-your-life-more-awesome/)
And having a dog can help improve self esteem and reduce stress. “Having dogs has actually been shown to improve a child’s self-esteem, and makes issues that cause stress easier to handle.”

   3) Dogs can save your life
Our amazing canine friends can even save our life. They can smell cancer in our bodys. “able to detect the smell of cancer in human bodies.”
