Picture a day project (Day 16)

Okay, it’s been a while since my last post. A lot has changed in my life. I got a new place to live, a permanent partner in life, and no Internet so far. Posting this blog is being done on my phone, but I had to post this picture. It’s an ordinary view that you can get when you walk The Art Museum path but to me, it’s a view that I’ve missed for months. I’m glad to be back out here. I’m fat again, so this is my chance to get back out there and in control of my life. I’m glad it isn’t too hot outside, so that I can enjoy it. An ordinary view, with an extraordinary meaning in life.

Today’s picture is a bowl of cereal. I have been moving into a new place and this is the time I could sit down and enjoy a good meal. Unfortunately, no time to cook, so a bowl of cereal it is. I know that some people will say cereal is just carbs and processed sugar. Well, that may be true, but when you’re starving and don’t have time to cook. I think it’ll do just fine.

Satisfying my hunger is key at this point, if I want to be healthier, it’ll take a change in lifestyle. Like, no cereal in the house, homemade cereal, nuts, fruits,  vegetables, maybe a pre-cooked meal. I have a lot of work to do. Oh well, tomorrow’s another day. Have a great night everyone!

Picture a day project (Day 15) – Hidden Treasures

Today’s picture is of an artwork that I was able to confiscate. Someone was planning on throwing it away, so luckily, I was able to claim it. If you don’t know what it is, it’s called Fleur Blanche dans Potte, it’s French or something like that, created by R. D’avers. I don’t know how much it is, but it’s a very classic piece. I know that this piece was created before she became a famous artist. It’s also a one of a kind artwork, and it’s someone else’s trash, but it’s my treasure 😀

Do you have any trash that others may treasure, if so, please consider giving it to them. I’m always trying to get my trash into be used again. It’s sad to see great books unopened and getting dusty, flabby, fat and lazy. 😀

What about, do you have sent treasures that other people may have told you was trash, how do you feel? Do you agree with them and can’t let go? Or do you hate yourself for having this irrational attachment? Or do you not care, and just love what you have.

Well let me know what trash you’re treasuring :-D. Have a great night everyone. If the artist does request that the picture gets taken down.I’m afraid that I’ll have to honor their request, but for now, enjoy this masterpiece!

Picture a Day Project (Day 14) – Side Effects of Poison Ivy

Tree

Today’s picture is of how not to deal with Poison Ivy. Recently, I posted a picture of poison ivy because it got on my skin and I had multiple rashes spread throughout my body. I’ve learned how to identify the plant and now stay away from it. One of my neighbors had poison ivy growing underneath their Fig Tree.

Live_Fig_Tree

This is what a fig tree normally looks like, the other tree, was actually the results of someone burning the tree because they did not know how to properly remove poison ivy, luckily, my family was not home at the time, but breathing in burning poison ivy smoke can be fatal. The poison will enter your lungs and you’ll get those rashes inside your body, which could lead to death. I don’t know if anyone else was around when that happened. But, thank goodness, we haven’t heard of anyone suffering from it. But, I wanted to sure that picture, because sometimes an uneducated persons’ action could lead to harmful, even fatal, consequences. The internet is here for us, please take a moment to research before doing something that could have lasting consequences for you and others around you. Also, not to mention the dead Fig Tree in the center. That was an unnecessary loss of life. My neighbors do not own the house, they’re renting it, and we could see they didn’t really care about what the owners left with them. It senseless, and I’m sad to see a life was lost.

 

 

 

Picture a day project (Day 13) – Traveling Companion

Today’s picture is of my trip home. Look at how dark the night has become. It’s also a full moon tonight. So, would you say “lovely, nice walk home?” or would you say “Dangerous road, keep to the lit areas” Well, that’s my walk home most of the time, and I do keep to the well lit areas, sometimes even walking in the streets. Because you never know if you’re being followed, which in my case I had a traveling companion. Look! I even shook hands with them. They waved at me and they followed my every move. They come and go as they please. Usually, they appear when there is light, and they stand below me, touching my feet with their feet. Strange followers, these shadow creatures, but they’re always there. Are you scared of your shadow sometimes? I mainly use someone else’s shadow as a way of detecting them before I see them, especially if they’re following me.

Everyone, have a good night and kiss your shadow goodnight 🙂

Picture a Day Project (Day 12) – Race Day – Vroom_Vroom

Race_Car Race_Car_II

Today’s pictures are of the race car parked outside the Comcast Building in downtown Philadelphia. They were showcasing the car, and letting people get inside of a real race car. It’s kind of cramped inside, but spacious at the same time. Instead of a passenger seat, you have steel bars to keep the car tight. The steering wheel comes off as you get in through the window, since the car is on solid piece of metal. It’s a nice looking car, and I’m happy to have had the chance to get into one. It’s actually quite comfortable once you get used to it 🙂

Happy, happy! Just took some time to take a break and this is what I see in the streets, even got a photo op. Hope everyone else is having a great time this week and stay cool, cause in Philadelphia, we’re into another heat wave this week. Have a great night everyone!

 

 

 

Picture a day project (Day 11) – A day at work

Today’s picture is of a rubber toy car. I took this while at work. I’m pretty fortunate to have a job that is excited as well as being surrounded by actively, engaged people. Also, because it’s a company that participates in bringing entertainment to their customers, we have quite a few trinkets and small toys throughout the office space. Yes, there are also beanbag chairs around as well.
I took this picture as a text to one of my friends and decided why not use it as my picture of the day. Hopefully, it portrays the place that I work as well as shows what the message that I wanted to say, which is, I’m lucky to have found such a great place to work. Now, this didn’t just happen, it took about 10 years of searching, struggling, working for worse companies, or just being in a bad position.

Cheer up, if you haven’t found a great job, or your dream job. It’s out there, take time, make an effort and you may find it. Don’t give up, and keep on searching. You’ll never know unless you look for it.

Today’s picture is of my finger-toe shoes. I love them and they’re very light on your feet. They’re good for about 5 miles of walking and running. After that, my feet become sensitive, but with training, you could do a full marathon in them. They also draw a lot of attention. I like that sometimes, but they’re very light-weight. So, if you do not have a pair or wondering if you should get one. I HIGHLY suggest that you do. Also, I got mine for about $40, that was on a 50% sale, so at most they should be $80, still cheaper than a pair of Nike.

Let me know if you have a pair or post in the comment a pic of your shoes. Thanks!

Picture a day project (Day 9) – Septa

Today’s picture is the 69th Street sign. It’s not exciting. I forgot which other city’s sign this was modeled after, but this sign represents my daily commute everyday to work. I use to drive to work 1.5 hours away, but fortunately I found a job inside the city, so now I don’t have to drive to work. The El takes me there for $91 a month. It’s not bad, my fiancee also lives close to the El stop as well. In Philadelphia, the Septa lines run to most places inside the city, outside the city, you can take the bus. The frequency of vehicles are less, but usually every 30 minutes or so. The El runs about every 7 to 15 minutes like the subway lines in NYC. Mass transit is pretty awesome.

Today’s picture may be pedestrian, but it’s an important part of my life. Do you take public transportation? What’s do you like most about it?

Picture a Day project (Day 8) – Gluttony: Round 2

Today’s picture is of this delicious, mouth watering, appetizing, amazingly satisfying doughnut. The cream was amazing. It’s not too sweet either, just the perfect balance that it becomes addictive. I know that I shouldn’t eat it. But, it’s free, and they were passing around the doughnut tray. Everyone was taking one, so why shouldn’t I? Peer pressure is to blame. Skipping breakfast is to blame. Weak will is to blame. Everything is to blame, but me. I savored the goodness, delectable, sugary center and my brain loved it!

I must have gained quite a few pounds ever since working here. It’s been hard since we do get free doughnuts, free pretzels, and sometimes free food. Work is amazing, but stressful at times, so they feed us. How can I resist?

I guess, I can go running after work, but will I really? If I did go running and didn’t eat the doughnut, I know I will feel happier than if I just ran after eating the doughnut. Guilt mix with pleasure. Why the conflicting thoughts.

So what conflicts do you go through that never seems to end? Let me know and please share, thanks!
