My cousin is getting engaged tomorrow... so, there's family members everywhere I look...
The men sit at the dining room table discussing the house market, the women are running around with their wet fingernails and toes, setting the table, and getting the last minute things ready. The groom is nowhere to be found... (I hope he's near and hasn't changed his mind), my grandma is blabbing away, as she serves tea and coffee, as usual, and I sit here on the couch observing. Some of the family had to fly in from out of state, some come from across the street, and some (like my dad) decided that they'd much rather be in bed watching t.v.
Honestly, I'd rather be in my bed right now, but, I'm trying to live in this moment... this is not my everyday, and throughout the years, I've come to realize that they are what matter most at the end of the day. We can be anywhere in the world with our families and feel at home.
It's funny... everyone has been asking the "soon to be" groom to show the ring, but he refuses... he keeps brushing them off, but they keep asking, which proves that family can get annoying...but, they are the annoyance I'd rather live with than without.
Tip of the Day: Enjoy the moments you have with your family. They're apart of the best and worst memories you'll have when you look back at your life one day.

Modest Fly Art Gallery is going to be showing Justine Macarrio's photography in late May. Her work is a contrast between the feminine and the masculine through a nostalgic lens. Her prints will be for sale at the show and her work will be up in the gallery until June 2010. There will be further details posted soon.
Yesterday, in my post, I mentioned procrastination... what we all do...
Tuesday, April 27, 2010
People go through bad patches... depending on: the numbers in our bank account, the height of the amount of bills stacked up on our desk, the emails and letters that have or haven't arrived in our mail box, the procrastination that keeps us from doing what needs to get done, the feeling of being unappreciated, the feeling when no one could understand, the feeling of not having enough time, etc. our mood, actions, and feelings are decided. Our level of patience, anxiety, and type of reaction to situations are made up of all these little things in life, that, in the long run, don't matter. These things accumulate and form our daily personality and create our actions in things that do matter in life.

On a more positive and interesting subject, I received a special gift yesterday...

I have, literally, done nothing today... except, look for a lost item. It seems that I may have misplaced my hard drive, (the one that holds all of my life) and, today, I have been everywhere looking for it. I am exhausted... tired of looking for something that's not there. It's the worst feeling when something goes missing. It seems to have just disappeared. I've been home three times since this morning, been at the gallery 4 times since this morning, and drove to Hollywood to Glendale and back to Foothill twice, looking for it. Just now, I cleaned out the gallery to make sure it wasn't hiding behind the white walls or the pieces on the walls, (if you've been to the gallery, there aren't many places it could be here) Now, I'm exhausted, so I thought I'd sit down for a while and write about how unorganized I've been lately. There has been so many different things going on, that, I haven't had the time to put things back in their place... and, this is what I get. If I don't find it, I'm going to have to spend two days redoing what I'm missing, and, if I do find it, (I hope I do... crossing my fingers) then, I promise to be more alert and organized.

Today is still Day 72, but I couldn't help myself because I encountered an asshole today, and I had to start writing about it, before I forgot all the details. I had to go to the post office in Glendale to send out a couple of packages...
I'm feeling really good today... I think it was the early morning shower... and the fact that it's not raining anymore... and the dance music I'm listening to... and, of course, the Venti cup of Starbucks coffee...

Today has been one of those days I couldn't wait for to end...
I haven't been very productive...
I was at the gallery and it was cold, so I put on some hot pink, Winnie the Pooh socks with my heels. I sat there with my socks and heels on, while my feet began to warm up. An hour later, I decided to walk home, so I closed the gallery up and started walking... with my socks still on. I thought about taking them off because I had to walk on Foothill Blvd., which is the Glenoaks of Tujunga, but the thought of bare feet made me shiver. I got a few stares and turning heads, but it was all good. I got home and my feet were warm...
Then, a couple hours later, I decided to walk to my Yoga class, which is about a mile from my house. I walked to my class with my lime green yoga mat under my arm, which was not that much better than my pink socks...
Tip of the Day: Don't think about what people think about you. It's just a waste of your time. Just be yourself.

Embarrassment was worse when I was younger because I didn't wear makeup and it took my cheeks 3.5 seconds to turn red. Embarrassment is a feeling that we don't think about often. It's something that feels uneasy, awkward, and, mostly, not good.
“Perhaps, on the whole, embarrassment and perplexity are a kind of natural accompaniment to life and movement; and it is better to be driven out of your senses with thinking which of two things you ought to do than to do nothing whatever, and be utterly uninteresting to all the world.”

Today, I woke up to the rain, but I wasn't happy about it. In the Winter, I love waking up to the rain, but, it's April now, so, seriously?

Every year, today, my cousins, aunts, grandmas, and anyone who cares to join us comes over to dye Easter eggs... it's supposed to be a fun filled family event. Today, I could care less about ducking eggs in dye... Today, I kind of feel like smashing the eggs on the walls all around the house and splattering dye on them. But... I have to get up, dress up, and show up. I guess it's nice to have family traditions and follow up with them, but, sometimes, family is not who I want to be around. Especially, if I'd rather drink up a bottle of wine and fall asleep...

So, I've realized that you guys don't only respond to relationship pieces... you respond to the good stuff. I am going to admit that everyday is not "good stuff," and, honestly, I can't make it good everyday. My moments come and go... but, you guys respond to the honest stuff that comes from my heart. (that's extremely corny! but, it's the truth...) I try, but am not able to give you "heart" everyday. The posts seem to go along with my mood, so, I will try to give you more "heart" in the next 305 days. Wow, 60 days are over already... that was fast.
