Day 1: Cumulonimbus

Danny has inspired me to participate in the 21 Days habit-forming regimen. I've decided to take up painting again, conquering fears and laziness.

Today is Day 1 and what come out today started from strictly using white, black and ultramarine blue ... And then highlights of avocado olive.

I guess it's appropriate that what came out is a study of painting cloud(s) since hurricane Irene is just passing Florida and soon to devastate the northern east coast (after their first brush of natural disaster, an earthquake welcome.

Day 1 - complete.

My Daily Plate post # 1

Although all of my immediate friends rarely use this livejournal to comment and/or keep up with our day-to-day bullshit, I still like to read past entries and how perceptions can change over time. It's a bit therapeutic, really. Either that or I am really egocentric enough to spend a Saturday afternoon reading and thinking about me, myself, and my demons. Ah well so I have made the decision to use it more often. It's fun to document, rant and rave, and get excited about recent progressions as a human being.

Since the beginning of March, Danny and I started a calorie-counting diet via www.mydailyplate.com. In order to reach my goals, my daily calorie intake started with 1,038 (I know...1 away from a Green Day reference!).

The first two weeks of a consisted vegetarian diet and an everyday visit to the gym (although the first week I had missed three or so days), I had managed to lose 2 lbs. I was elated and motivated to make the third week even harder and have more regimented workout sessions. I was able to run on the treadmill non-stop, which was something I was afraid to do but always wanted to excel in. I started non-stop treadmill from 10 minutes one day to 15 the next, and then today to a great half-an-hour! It was exciting and inspiring that I was at the gym for two and half hours today. That's probably a bit much but since I didn't lose a pound this week, I wanted to push my limits even more.

I think I made the mistake of overeating this week though. Too much protein bars (a reward I always had after a workout) is making me gain/sustain the weight I wanted to lose. I knew Negative Nancy would creep in this post!

Since the start of this new lifestyle, we have been drinking and going out less, saving lots and lots of money by not being frequenters at Kingdom Buffet, and getting closer and closer to our personal goals. I love the fact that we're doing this together. He's a great motivator, a caring leader at heart. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Saturday Night Fever

It was a beautiful weekend!

I spent it indoors and watched:
Season 1 of Arrested Development
the first half of Season 10 of Friends
Ocean's 11
half of The Others (Tom went out last night and I got spooked so I turned it off)
Wedding Daze
The Station Agent
Back to the Future 1
Back to the Future 1 (with commentary)
(added at 11pm) Back to the Future III

I managed to sandwich all this in between sleeping and coping with my sinusitis.

Woohoo! Sickness 2008!

Really...was it beautiful outside today?

A picture of my new bass guitar in action and my drunken stupor

This bass guitar makes me rock!

Sometimes I wish I can not be me, and stand from this point of view to watch the Ridicules.

And sometimes I wish I didn't drink so much to make silly faces.

Anyone else who has pictures from the Copyrights / TBR set, that would be great so that I can re-live an awesome show!

Thanks, Mike Dirnt, for the present!

Number six, pick up stix

Ok. What was I thinking? Taking an online history course for pure enjoyment???

This is the most work I've ever had to do for any class! EVER. The lack of class meetings requires self-inclination of learning.

Painting long time.

[Tony used to say that I take my sweet time when I paint. "But painting takes long time. Painting long time," in the worst degrading Chinese accent imaginable].

Here is a painting I created with Stephanie (missriot) in our painting class about three years ago. It's one of my dear favorites because it reminds me of one of our last semesters together (we had first met each other freshmen year in Art Appreciation); and it also reminds me of my frustrations with painting. I had given up on the day we were presented this still-life, so when I threw my inhibitions out the window, I actually created something I really like:

This next one I finished a couple of weeks ago. I hadn't painted in a while as my paints and brushes were collecting mounds of dust. Since I've had the most time in the world, I finally picked it up again to serve as my outlet from doldrums and anxiety that is the everyday.

I might actually give this piece to my cousin, Jerry. He seemed to take a liking in it. So that's one x-mass present!

comments/critiques/praises/insults are welcome!

...and I know you kids are dying to hear about the Sonics. But I'll save that for another day! I need to upload the pictures! Let's just say it was great. And you should watch the show on Youtube to see what you suckers missed. Once in a lifetime baby!
