where is my mind


I am so so so tired.

I worked extra early today, but got out even earlier. So, I made the decision to make French onion soup. It turned out perfectly. I have no complaints. Not to brag, but this is the best French onion soup I've ever eaten. I still don't know what possessed me to make soup in 85 degree weather, but I had a craving that needed to be satisfied.

Shortly after that we fell asleep on the floor, and moved to the bed. I believe we ended up sleeping from 4pm to 10:30pm. I woke up and realized, once again, shit, I have to take my photo. Here is my half assed, tired photo of the day.

We had planned on going out to dinner tonight to use this Groupon we had and we planned on doing laundry (which really needed to be done) and now, I'm too tired to move at all. Quite mad at myself for that.

I sometimes wonder where I will go after this lease is up. I would like to travel, but that may require me to quit my job. I can't imagine being jobless ever. I've been working for 5 years. It's all I've known. I've definitely held out on so many things because of it and I hate it for that reason.

I've been looking for some temp jobs and jobs that don't expect me to come into an office everyday. I've found a few freelance photo jobs, but who even knows if they're interested in my work. I've thought about serving jobs, but then they usually require experience. I hate that. How am I supposed to do any job if they want prior experience? Isn't that the reason why you get a job anyway? To learn and grow from that job? I feel like people are too quick to write others off. I once applied for a photo job that would have consisted of me taking photos of hotels and people who rent our their condos for those who are traveling. They shot me down because I don't have experience with shooting interior architecture or whatever bullshit reason they gave. I don't need experience when I feel like I've already mastered composition and lighting. But...I suppose this is the way the world works.

I went to the other side of town today. It's still a very strange feeling being there. We celebrated my brother's and grandmother's Independence birthdays since my brother has things going on tomorrow. I rushed to get home so I could get some rest after we ate. Last night ended up being a lot more fun than I had expected it to be. And I certainly wasn't planning on staying up until 5am. I guess things happen because they're meant to.

I just found out that I wasn't accepted to partake in a gallery that I submitted photos for. I will only be a part of the online exhibition. It's a relief, in a way, knowing that I won't have to spend hours on printing the photo, picking it up, going to a frame store, getting it framed, delivering it to the gallery, and spending all this money. But still, could've been fun. Oh well, there's always next year.

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...

Do I get penalized or something when I post my photos later? I mean, as long as I take them then what's the issue? I know I'm supposed to post them, but like I said before, sometimes it's hard to get to a computer and sometimes this internet cuts out, and sometimes I simply wanna sleep instead of spending an hour uploading, editing, and writing some story to go with my photo.

Anyway, work is exhausting. The beach is lovely and I'll start going daily. The Blackhawks are awesome amazing and are totally going to defeat the Flyers. This is their year, and I've been saying that since the season started.

I really didn't have time to post this last night, so I hope you can forgive me. But I swear to you I took this picture last night after work.

Yesterday was a hectic day. I had switched my hours with someone at work. I was supposed to work in the morning, but wasn't scheduled to come in until 3. Of course, I get called to come in at noon. Quelle surprise! John and I run into CiCi and Luke on our way in to the store. This is like something that would happen on the south side, and now it happened on the north side. I still think that is quite funny.

I worked for 8 hours and after work, Gary came over and we hung out with Luke, CiCi, and this guy, Steve, who was house sitting. We had a bon fire and sips of whiskey to keep us warm.

So these people, who Steve was house sitting for, has this huge dog. I've never seen anything like this dog, I swear. It was the biggest dog I've ever seen in my life. If it were able to stand on it's hind legs, it could probably be as tall as John. No joke. And he kept humping Luke all night. Quite a funny sight to see.

I'm tired. Work makes me tired. I work everyday. I'm surprised I still have the energy to do this project because I don't seem to have energy to do anything at all.

And now I get to spend my Easter at Jewel-Osco for the 5th year in a row. Yay.

(Today's picture will be coming shortly.)
