Life of P [Sep. 13th, 2013|11:33 pm]
glow, melt and flow
[Tags|, ]

As I lay here in bed, on the verge of my 26th birthday, I can't help but wonder where I will be 3 years from now...5 years from now. My life is so different from when I was 19...to 21...to now. It's amazing how many things can change and not change at the same time and how it all just seems to fall into place like a never ending game of Tetris. We all have our own journeys at sea and I think my best years are just on the shore but I won't forget the storms where I clung on just barely.

The other day I went grocery shopping and bought this massive amount of food, but it's all good food and food you have to actually prepare before you enjoy. I've been noticing that I'm really sluggish and just plain lethargic all the time and while most of this is just serious apathy, I'm sure that my diet isn't helping. I am positive that I do not fill my daily quota of potassium and iron. So in my grocery shopping I bought plenty of good veggies and fruits. Everyone knows bananas are a good source of potassium but the thing is you have to eat more than one a day for it to even make a dent for your intake. We found this website and it lists foods that are high in potassium, there were all the common ones but a surprising one was strawberries. I managed to make a very potassium filled dinner tonight: Chicken cooked in a tomato sauce, mashed potatoes, and boiled brussels sprouts. mmmmmm...

[music |Semisonic - Closing Time]

It's really weird to be graduated from college and going to grad school but almost feeling like you're not really in school? Let me explain. I'm in a master's program that only meets one weekend a month, I haven't been reading (I REALLY SHOULD get started but it's almost unnecessary) and I have noticed I've been progressively getting lazier and lazier as the days go by. For example, today I sat around for about maybe 6 hours watching a marathon of Top Chef. Practically all I've been doing Monday through Friday lately is sleeping in late, watching countless hours of shows, cooking, maybe some internet, Angry birds, and cleaning. I want to motivate myself but I can't really seem to. I keep living for the weekends, which are seeing my family and/or spending time with Dane. Right after the 10k that Diana and I ran in Vero, on the 15th, I noticed is when my motivation dropped a ton. That race, by the way, was so adrenaline pumping and we did awesome for our first race. Diana came in 34th (1:02:53.4 - 10:06 pace) and I was 52nd (1:08:53.1 - 11:04 pace) out of 82. That very same day coincidentally concurred with me hurting a tendon in my foot (due to running the wrong way my entire life - so weird! how does this happen right?!??) and my brother spraining his ankle while playing basketball. I told myself I would take a 2 week break from strenuous foot activity and my brother has to take a month off, which suck so bad because he's my exercise partner. And it's super scary going to the park without him (some creepy incidents have happened to girls running alone there). Actually, I'm almost positive if I started working out again I'd be tons more motivated. Okay so that mystery is solved.

Onto halloween weekend festivities!

I went to Jacksonville this weekend and it was so sick.
This little trip really exceeded my expectations and Dane's too.
Tony was our host and took us into his spacious apartment.

He brought us to a bunch of really delicious food places,
I got drunker than I wanted for the Fl/Ga game,

we hung out with Jade & Arend a whole lot,
we got to see where Tony's super serious bar association job is...

... and his view,

and met Tony's good friends Zac and Maria.
We also went to a really neat toy store,

watched some Parks and Rec,
went to this awesome super-market-type-store that only sells alcoholic beverages,

AND! went to a flea market that was chocked full of some rare finds
i.e. Michael Jordan plastic doll from Space Jam.

Note to self: If I were a prop designer or costume designer,
I would definitely hit up flea markets for supplies.

I'll load this post with pictures tomorrow! Stay tuned! Oh yeah, and since I deleted my fb this lj, flickr, and tumblr will be the go to destinations for my shots. I might bring it fb back...it'll just be most likely a bit from now.

I'm about to attempt to redecorate my parent's bedroom and the guest bathroom so that when they come back to Orlando my dad will be really surprised. The "attempt" part is due to the fact that their room is covered in this pale blue wallpaper. I've never dealt with wallpaper before but I watched some videos on how to remove it and it seems doable. I just need to get all the right tools: mainly a scoring tool, wallpaper removal gel spray, and a scraper. I got 2 weeks to get this all done before my folks come back up here.
The color scheme I picked for the guest bathroom is this:
and for the master bedroom this!

The life and times [Sep. 23rd, 2011|09:56 am]

So to update:
-I'm 24 (ow!) and almost an OG (you become an OG at age 25).
-Today is the day of my first graduate class! I'm nervous and excited and scared all at once about it.
-Also, I've been training for this 10k and it's killing me (my feet - so blistered up). This premise of getting a t-shirt but also losing weight is egging me on (but mostly the t-shirt part).
-I'm about 97% close to deleting facebook. I don't like the idea of sharing all this shit with EVERYONE (even if there are groups and whatnot) and for FB to have the ownership over your photos, etc. But I think this will be a good thing because I will be updating my tumblr: ponyessays.tumblr.com and this thing with actual photos (just like the old days and more consistently) from now on.
-But I might get a blogspot account and in the event of that I will letchu all know but I doubt it since I've had this ol' LJ since about 9th grade and I'm more of a memories/history/loyalty type of person.

more updates to come! (to anyone who actually uses this anymore!)

But if i move my place in line i'll lose.
And I have waited, the anticipation's got me glued.

Home for the weekend and I couldn't be happier. It's all peach iced tea, shorts, open window cruising, and death cab on repeat.

An eyelash of his laid on the tip of my thumb, as he held me close in the pool, i counted 1, 2, 3 and we both blew as we made a wish. I think we made the same wish. That means it will definitely come true.

I noticed the sun was as big as ever and slowly setting. I was speeding down Schumann, to see if I could get a better view. I was trying to catch the sun. It was almost gone when I stopped to take a picture. I realized it was no use; it was better kept this way, in a memory. The moon shone just as bright, almost as if trying to pick up where the sun left off.

I can't control everything but I can choose where to go from here.

i don't really like to draw if other people are watching. I carry around my little book and fill it up during my break but if i sense that people are judging them, then i'd rather not draw at all. Is that weird? But i mean, i think they're pretty good.
