where is my mind


I've been cleaning all day. Exhausted. I must finish up soon as I plan on going to this festival near my place where I will probably meet up with some friends. Yet, I have so much to do! For being such a little one bedroom apartment, it still takes me hours to clean it all. I guess it never seemed to take that long since I would usually have John helping me, but he's at work and will be there all day long. Poor fella.

The actor Vince Vaughn has been shooting a movie in my hood for the past few weeks, and only a block away from my apartment. I walked passed the bar that they were filming at a few days ago and saw all this video equipment there. It's cool to be a part of it in a way. So when you see this movie, you can say, wow, Lisa lives right there! Maybe I can find my way into being an extra somehow...
where is my mind


In my kitchen. The kitchen is probably one of my favorite places. This is where I cook my meals and chop up the vegetables and wash the dishes. Being in the kitchen is actually quite a therapeutic thing for me, seeing as how it's the one place that gets the dirtiest the quickest. I actually really enjoy cleaning.

I still have a lot of decoration things to do for this place. I hate that these cabinets are so boring and white. I've been going through a lot of my art recently. There are so many drawings and paintings that I would like to fix up now that I have come back to them; I can see where a lot of the flaws are. Don't you ever do that to your work? You look back on something that you drew/painted 2 years ago, and suddenly, you have a whole new take on it? I have a lot of work to do.

Do you have any questions for me? Ask them here.

I'm pretty sure I didn't get paid for one of the days that I had to come in and work. On my paycheck it said I had 20 hours, but I definitely know for sure that I had 24 hours because I went in early on Friday morning. Ugh, now I gotta get this all figured out. I thought my paycheck seemed unusually small for what I was expecting.

Wow, day 20! I'm happy to say that I'm keeping up with this project.

This morning I cleaned my room. Every time I clean my room, it gets cluttered all over again in a matter of days. I like to clean though. I don't mind doing the dishes or the laundry or cleaning my room - it's actually quite therapeutic for me. I like to declutter because all these things we have can become such a nuisance.

Before I move out, I'm going to go through every single thing in my room and decide whether or not it is necessary to my life. There is no reason for me to keep all of these things if they serve no purpose. I'm going to get rid of old clothes and give it to charity and give away little itty bitty things to others that might benefit from it.

I remember there was a time when I would keep every single little thing - whether it be from others or from school, etc. And I remember the day when I finally tossed all that crap out. It was incredibly relieving and freeing. I never want to go back to that stage again.

I noticed that I do something really funny...whenever I'm ready to take a photograph, I always take the cap off of the lens and I place it somewhere random. Then I end up forgetting completely where I put it and I have to retrace my steps. I'm so silly.
