30 Apr

At times I imagine how things could happen, dreams and goals, but it never works that way in life. In life there are so many things working against me. I have no one helping me. I have no one hiring me.

It’s amazing to think: people work, pay taxes on what they earn, pay taxes on everything they buy, only to earn a tiny amount after all of the taxes, find themselves trapped in the cycle of low wages and taxes.

 

Those that have, power and money, do not want to anyone else to have what they have…

Last day of another week.

I have been making changes to my website.

 

I have some hidden pages on my site.

 

Can you find them?

 

I will move the place where the link can be found.

I was able to do some new photography Wednesday. I have redesigned my website with the new photography. I will keep making changes.

I hope to go out and do more photography, more often, soon and have new photography on my site.

Yesterday I went to the community lunch. It was good. The cake was not impressive: plain cake with Cool Whip on top. The cake was dry.

I walked to the town of Columbia. I did some photography and I hope to update my site today.

I ate at Panera Bread. It was good. Had a salad. I like to eat salads but I do not eat them often because I cannot afford to eat salads more often.

 

Today I hope to edit my web site with all new photography. I plan to keep doing photography and adding them to the site.

26 Apr

Today I am going to a free community lunch. After that I hope to do some photography but I have no exact plans as to what to photograph.

I keep coming back to the question, one of many, that I ask myself so often: what shall I do? I am not just considering what I shall do today or what shall I do this week, but what shall I do with my life.

I always assumed that I would have a career and all that comes with a career but it does not seem that I will have the option to take that “traditional” path in life, not that there is much about me that is “traditional” and I like it that way.

I would like to have my own place. A tiny house would be great. A truck to tow the tiny home with would be great as well. I would travel the country, staying in various places for weeks or months at a time, seeing the sights, taking photography and video, meeting new people, and experiencing life.

Today. Another day. Tuesday.

What will I do today? What will you do today?

I would love to write and produce web series but I do not have the actors or crew. I also do not have all of the equipment I would need.

I want to write but each time I sit down to write my mind goes blank. It’s not easy to overcome doubt.

Acting? I would do the acting thing if I were offered a role but I am not looking for anything.

Tomorrow I plan to go out and do all new photography so that I can rework my web site.

Rain.

I am not sure if I will go anywhere today. It is suppose to rain today.

I keep applying to jobs, wasting time, and I wonder if I should stop submitting to jobs. I need to organize my time better. What does being productive look like? Is quality sacrificed for quantity?

I hope to do new photography this week if the weather is nice one day.

New week. What shall I do this week?

Yesterday I went to a place called Carolina Cafe in Lexington County (South Carolina), had a free ham and cheese on English Muffin and a hot chocolate (both free with coupons), the food and service were great.

Living in a rural area is interesting. There are a couple of small towns near me (Columbia) and some small communities (West Columbia and Cayce). The closest city is Atlanta.

I miss so much about living in a city: public transit, employment, sidewalks, industry, events, museums, parks, and more.

Last day of the week.

What shall I do today?

I am going to CVS.

Maybe, I will do some writing.

 

I am hopeful. I believe things will improve for me.

21 Apr

Friday.

 

I am considering what I shall do today. I want to do photography and refresh my web site with all new photography. I don’t know what I want to photograph. I have no transportation so I am limited to the area around me. I have not decided how I want to design my web site. I want to have a new look for the site.

 

I want to write so much each day. I also have a stack of books to read. It’s going to be hot today but I have places I need to go, or I could wait until tomorrow, maybe.

 

I do not have any specific plans except reading, writing and photography. I do submit to job openings most days but I am not optimistic about that anymore.
