Amazing each n every picture

I have been thinking about how I haven’t been writing yet and I have been trying to think of things I could write about that I would actually enjoy.
With that said, I decided to join Yelp and download the app, so I could force myself to write while also forcing myself to go out and enjoy the world.
Other than that, nothing else is really new. I started that juice diet today and it’s been killing me not to eat the cookies my mom bought me the other day. I am determined to make it though. I just want to look great on the beach when I go in a few weeks.
I also need to buy some new shorts. I only have a few pairs that fit me, and my swim trunks are about 3 or 4 years old, so I need some new things in my life.
I am STILL waiting to hear back about two different full-time jobs too. Hopefully, I will hear today. I am not getting my hopes up though. I just want to get out of Buehler’s.
Ehh. This is my life lately. I am pretty content though! Life is good!
Ares, Hades, Hephaestus
Ares: If you had to fight someone in a duel, what would be your weapon of choice?
-I would have to choose a weapon similar to a chainsaw, only because the noise from this machine would be enough to tear a person apart internally.
Hades: If you could meet a person from history, who would it be and why?
-I would love to have met Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks or Anne Frank. I always admired that the first two overcome the obstacles against them to become legendary and known for living their dreams. And Anne just dealt with something that others probably wouldn’t and used her words to tell it all.
Hephaestus: If you could learn a skill instantly, what would you choose?
-I would love to learn all of the skills necessary to build a house on my own. I like the idea of one day owning my own house or apartment and knowing that I placed the tiles, or hung the drywall or installed the lighting fixtures. I enjoy being handy and want to learn more.
- Aphrodite: What do you find attractive in a partner?
- Apollo: Favourite song?
- Ares: If you had to fight someone in a duel, what would be your weapon of choice?
- Artemis: Favourite animal?
- Athena: Do you have any special talents?
- Demeter: Favourite food?
- Dionysus: Favourite drink?
- Hades: If you could meet a person from history, who would it be and why?
- Hephaestus: If you could learn a skill instantly, what would you choose?
- Hera: Do you want to get married and/or have children?
- Hermes: Where in the world would you most like to visit?
- Hestia: Where do you most want to live?
- Poseidon: If you were shipwrecked on a tropical island, what would you want to have with you?
- Zeus: If you ruled the world, what would you change?
I have had a lot on my mind today.
I have had two separate interviews for full-time positions at Lowes within a week. They both have seemed to go well, but I haven’t been offered the one I wanted (unless the woman that was offered it turns it down), so I am not getting my hopes up.
Last week, I officially grew tired of my other job. I was in a bad mood all week from working there and the stupid shit that happens daily. I am hoping that I can get out of there soon.
With this all said, I am feeling a new level of independence. Financially, I have really no issues. Sure, I would love to be saving up more money to move to NYC, but I am still saving around $500 a month, so I am not too concerned yet.
Now that I have become financially secure, I am feeling confident in myself and what I am capable of doing for myself and for others. Now, I feel that I need to focus more on myself and maintain my independence and give myself more allowance to enjoy my life when I want to.
Also, I have found most of the furniture that I would like to have for my future apartment and already have all of the money I would need for it! Now, I just have to keep saving money and will be far more than ready for all of those purchases by the time December rolls around.
Part of me doesn’t know if I can wait for this move till December though…
To sum all of this up, I am independent when it comes to money, couldn’t be happier about it, and can’t wait for my life to take off from Ohio!
INSIDE THE RAIN ROOM
Looks like I have another reason to visit the Rain Room over at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art). We were lucky enough to have a preview of the room the night of the MoMA PS1 Expo1 Opening Party. But alas, we lost our shots. So we’re giving you some amazing shots that folks have been taking while inside Random International’s exhibit.
The Rain Room is interactive - you step into this intense, expansive room with the roaring sound of rain coming down all around you, yet the installation’s sensors sense your movements and shut of the water around you - creating a magical effect, giving you the feel that you wield some control over the weather - not to mention, it makes for some pretty decent photo ops.
The exhibit runs until July 28th and is well worth the wait in line to experience.
I AM GOING I DON’T CARE IF I GO ALONE OR IF I AM SURROUNDED BY CHILDREN I AM GOING
Having to wake up in four hours for work is just a horrid thought.
Thankfully, The Golden Girls is on.
