8:49 pm and 113°…

…it’s a little hot and i’m quite toasty. j***y gave me a wet towel for my head. i am sitting in front of the fan and i feel better. the air conditioning helps, but it’s struggling to cool our three bedroom apartment. i’ve had a difficult day. i accomplished so much, but yet so little. i got everything done today except for what i really wanted to get done. it was an up and down day. one minute up, one minute down…if it wasn’t r*****d causing arguments and calling us to off load groceries…it was misunderstandings between all of us girls…if it wasn’t that, it was a personal dilemma over a stupid text message. today, everything melted…the groceries, the household, and me. i really don’t drink due to medication, but tonight…iced cold hard cider sounded really good. so, as i work on my seventh cider…i realize that tomorrow is just going to be hotter and more things are going to melt…the desert is neither easy, nor friendly.

hairs cut…

…each and every one of them. i was beginning to look all wild and wooly, or so the girls told me…but, i failed to get a woman’s opinion on the matter…that’s neither here nor there, but today i went back to being addressed by, “sir”…which i actually hadn’t heard in a few months and kind of liked…but, i figure with this heat it’ll be grown out to be wild and wooly proportions again…in about three weeks…

so now, i think that i look like a cop…behold good cop and bad cop…

finally following through…

…on a suggestion from my friend, d***y. she has been my friend and main encouragement when it comes to writing. a year or two ago, she invited me to join her writers group. i did and i have really benefited from being a part. i have received countless suggestions and lots of help. i am greatly appreciative. 

anyway, d***y suggested that i utilize my photos to make and self-publish a coffeetable photo book. i finally decided to do it and i am almost done. i am going to start with one and see how well that does. if it does well, i will start utilizing all of my photos for photobooks. that would make me really happy, to be able to use them.

my first photobook is utilizing las vegas street art: tags, graffiti, murals, posters, banners, and stickers. below are a few sneak peeks.

just waking up…

…i tried to stay up as long as i possibly could last night…

…i wanted to hear about the combative, drunk lady, with .228 blood alcohol concentration…

…i was curious to know about people’s reactions to the website…

…i just wanted to listen and not have to say anything. i am so tired of hearing myself talk about nothing of importance…

…i am inspired by new ideas that surround me and my plan moves forward…

drained…

…yesterday, i was out in the sun for most of the day, by the time that i got back to the apartment…i was completely drained.

…i went to bed really early last night and i fell asleep very promptly. at some point, i ended up accidentally calling my friend.

…after doing that, i fell asleep again, but woke up at 3:45 am…still clutching my phone. apparently, i was sending a text.
