I finished all my finals a week ago. This week is mostly for me to relax and apply for as many summer interns as I can.

So far, I had a firefighter, a man in the Salvation Army Adult Rehab program, a Mexican boot maker, a barber, a veteran. This is my sixth column. It is about one of the oldest bike shop owners in Albuquerque, N.M

Greg Overman, right, took over the Bike Coop on Central Avenue in 1998. He dropped out of New Mexico State University in 1972 because of financial problems. He was studying music at the time, and he worked in a bike shop in Las Cruces. He said he hadn’t planned on being a life-long bike mechanic.
“But doing what you enjoy is quite a privilege,” Overman said. “Especially if that’s your job and you get to do what you enjoy.”
After moving to Albuquerque in 1973, he kept working on bikes in different shops around town. He said his mother taught him how to fix things.
“When I was a little kid, I liked taking things apart and not always putting them together,” he said. “My mother made it clear to me that if I was gonna do that I have to learn how to put it back together, so it will work. And that’s how I started it.”
“Life is short. All I have to do is enjoy as much as I can,” he said.

Susan Shivers hugs her son Luke Shivers, a TCU fullback, Saturday after the Horned frogs defeated UNM 66-17. Shivers presented her son with a rose, as TCU finished the season undefeated and will likely get a bid to play in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. (photo by Junfu Han)
I saw this quote on A Photo Editor,
Before I became a picture editor, I assumed that “good photographers” took “good pictures” because they had a special eye. What I found was that good photographers take good pictures because they take great pains to have good subjects in front of their cameras. Reflect a moment on what cameras do, and this makes sense. Good photographers anticipate their pictures. What good picture editors do is help them.

I was sad on Monday because this photo did not run on the paper, it was supposed to go along with Andy Beale's story about a kitchen for the homeless people in Albuquerque.
My original plan for this week was to take the Mexican bus to El Paso,TX to look for some ideas of my stories about the border. I didn't make it because I had a bad a headache and toothache this morning. Then I ended up going to Old Town to look for a Piñata story from La Piñata Shop and buy a bag of hot Jalapeño Peanut Brittle from the Rockey Mountain Chocolate.
Hopefully I will get the chance to film the two Piñata shops in town these days. And also I hope the build-in microphone on my 7D could work good.

I haven't gone home in about two years. But this time, I will see my parents in less than a month.
I'm going to send this card on Monday.

I'm so glad this long week is over
even though I was chilling at the baseball field the whole night
I felt happy
Although the Lobos lost, they still get another game Saturday to advance
And, I am looking forward to the trip to Santa Fe tomorrow for the seminar presented by Rob Haggart who is the author of blog 'A Photo Editor' http://www.aphotoeditor.com/
I hope I can learn a lot of stuff from this event

'Cos I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying
Till they're walking round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages
in the zoo man
'Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
