Day 271: I'm a sucker for pretty skies

There's not a lot of prettiness on Atlantic Ave when we drive home, so I take it where I can get it...

It makes everything so shiny. :)

Day 269: a day in

I'm a total slacker. It's not til I woke from my late night nap did I realize I hadn't taken one original photo yet... So I snapped one real quick...

Day 268: happy birthday Carolina Sophia!

Spent the day at Central Park for Vincenzo's daughter's first birthday party. First we hit up the zoo before finally having a picnic in the park. Carolina saw penguins! Don't know if it was her first time, but she looked amazed. I find it cute that she was staring at the penguins and Vincenzo was staring at her staring at the penguins...

This is what parenthood is, I guess. Your child is watching everything else, enraptured by it all...but as a parent, it's your child who holds all your attention...

Day 266: I'm such a slacker

I didn't want to do another self portrait so I took a picture of the closest thing I could:

Day 265: Just a blur

That's how I feel sometimes. About life in general. I used to say that, you know. Life is a blur of fast you don't know you're flying.

I've been terrible at posting the day I take the pictures, so I'm like, three days behind! Massive backblog to occur tonight! Gahhhh

I guess I've been too busy breezing through the days to be so artsy or contemplative. I suppose that's what happens when you've started dating. Even worse when it's long distance dating (yes, I know, again...haha) and the line between trying to have a life and making time for each other is so thin and all of a sudden, photoblogging takes a backseat....

I still take at least one picture every day, but I've been half assing it as of late. Sigh. Sometimes I will get a rare stroke of awesomeness in between all the mundane, random shots, but I feel those are so much fewer and farther in between. Must work on that. I have less than a hundred days left to go!!!

Day 264: an evening with The Swellers

The Swellers were in town and Brandon asked me at the last minute to see their show at Webster Hall! I find it funny/coincidental that I just so happened to be wearing the exact same dress I was wearing when I first saw them last year AND I had on my Swellers hoodie too! I was Sweller-ready and I didn't even know it! Yay!

As a quick backstory, I became a fan last year when Brandon took me to see them. Brandon grew up with Ryan, who plays guitar, and since signing with their label, have come to NY a bunch of times on tour with different bands...Paramore, Less Than Jake, on the Warped Tour... Whenever they come to town, Ryan calls Brandon and I get to tag along from time to time. Yay! It's crazy to know bonafide rockstars!

Anyway, was super stoked since this time, we'd be upfront instead of backstage and I'd actually know their songs this time around. Yay!

They're super sweet guys too. I was feeling a little dizzy after they played their set (combination of giving blood earlier in the day, not eating then scarfing a happy meal in the time it takes to do a three block walk, and then rocking hard by the amp) so I was a party pooper who sat in the backroom by the bathroom and even though they didn't have to, Brandon, Ryan and Anto (the bass player) all came by to hang out/check on me. They give hugs too! But they make sure they're not gross and sweaty when they do it! Hahah

Dizziness aside, made for an awesome night.

Yayyyy The Swellers!!

Day 263: on the phone...

Every night (usually), I'll get on the phone with Jeff and we'll spend all this time just talking about anything or nothing... Whatever it is we're talking about, this is usually how I look...happy.

Even from far away, he makes the lame days less lame (or at least, he makes the crappy stuff seem insignificant) and the good days even better... this is what it's be happy...and in love....again... It's much better than I remember. :)

Day 262: me? Drive?

Sitting in the driver's seat...

I generally don't drive but I do it when necessary but that doesn't mean I don't want to pee my pants every time I end up on the highway!

Day 258: battle scars

It's definitely not your best day when you've not only got papercuts and permanent marker all over your hand but you also have crazy glue dried on your finger from accidentally getting yourself stuck to the crazy glue applicator...

Day 254: it's been a while...

...since I tried my hand at artsyfartsiness...

...was at a bridal shower today and the bride's niece was handing out roses that she had plucked from her grandmother's vase. I was one of the lucky was Haj, my roommate and lady contemplating the beauty of the roses in the background (or so I imagine)...

Day 248: you get the stink eye...

Took Jeff with me to meet the cousins and Daj woke up to find his mother gone and a strange man in his living room... When he finally stopped crying and came out, he just sat there on Arn's lap and looked like that at Jeff for a solid half hour...

He did eventually warm up to him though. :)

Day 245: Ghillie

Almost every day, on our way home from work, we see this man, cheerfully knocking on windows and asking for money. Brandon has nicknamed him Ghillie because he looks like he's wearing a Ghillie suit that snipers wear. Brandon can't help but give the guy a dollar and a fist bump every chance he gets because he's always sooo cheerful. It's crazy how happy he can be, standing out in the heat all day and waiting for anyone to show some kindness...reminds me that you can choose your disposition no matter the circumstance. I need to remember that!

Day 243: I hate the file room

The worst part about paperpushing happens when someone calls me to ask for a revision JUST after I've already closed it and it's gone on to where files go to die: the file room. So then I gotta go through everything again to find just the one teeny file in stacks of many just to make a revision. Sigh.

Just my luck that the one I needed was the very last one on the bottom. :(

I need a vacation.
