Ok so .. Monday, I went to the gym for the first time in .. mmm.. maybe 2 months.
Yeah it was in August when I last worked out; I took an aquafit class while in D.C. It was like yoga, but in a pool! Yasss!! (#OAC2016 taught me some new tricks 🙂
In my opionion, I still look fly (takes kissy selfie lol) ..umm but I’m up 17lbs since this time last year tho. DAMN! (My ass got fat, literally! )
Yes, a lot has changed in the past year. I don’t want to go into too many details but, the point is ..
me + fitting my clothes from last year= fail.
FML. I need to get it together!
Assignment Twelve: Architecture & Monochrome
I’ve been here, but I’ve never been here. I will soon be here.
The assignment was to practice using the Quality of Light throughout the day. I’m usually in Manhattan — so these pics are in Midtown East and on the Upper West Side.
Sunday afternoon. First day of spring. The sun came out for a little bit.
Sunday afternoon. It as chilly out
Early Saturday morning.
34th post office Saturday morning. I wanted to follow the sun on this building but it was cloudy the rest of the day.
Empire State Building — early Saturday morning
Day 7 Assignment: Big Point of View
The 1 train at 242nd street.
It’s a big deal. It’s how I typical choose to get into the BIG city. It’s local. It’s a west side train. It’s convenient. It’s organized chaos. It’s New York.
The day after VDAY2016… No hearts, no flowers, luckily no vomit either…Thank ya Jesus!
Whew! I survived another year without a mate on Valentine’s Day. Listen.. I am all for the glitz and glamour, flowers, candy, wining and dining on this special day for lovers, but trust me when I say I gagged consistently throughout the day. I’m 31, single as a dollar bill and live in NewYork. You can imagine all the heart shaped balloons, obsessive kissing commercials and bouquets of flowers purposely being thrown in my face! Lol — yes it was on purpose damn it!
In the midst of accepting all this single-dom.. What stood out for me is, it is a day to SHOW love– publicly lol.
Can you agree that a lot of times it’s hard to accept it or even notice it, if it’s not in the way we want or from who we want. We block it out, turn our backs, shrug it off, or just plain ignore it ( lalala im not listening!!!) Then Valentine’s Day comes along and we wear black to celebrate “Singles Awarness Day” and are mad as hell.
So the moral of this story is.. I don’t need to be reminded that I’m single (sheesh!) but maybe I should take a huge whiff of all that love in the air so next year I can blog about all the flowers, wining and dining — oooh and jewelry would be nice haha!
