January 29th 2007 ~ day 29

This month is coming to an end, fast! I can't believe February is only a couple of days away!

I got some interesting calls today, work-wise.... but everything is still in the "maybe" stage, so no press release yet!
I've got a meeting tomorrow to discuss a possible temporary collaboration, which sounds interesting... I'm looking forward to that!

The definite highlight of my day today, though, was my long awaited return to the gym!! It was a tough struggle... an internal battle, but in the end my determination won over my slack!
I'll tell ya... it was tough sticking it out, but I did... and so today I managed to pass the first dreaded hour of "The Comeback".... yeah my comeback... to the gym! My instructor nearly fell over when he saw my face! LOL ... I think he'd given up on me!
Needless to say, I'm determined to go back to my 3-times-a-week schedule!

Like the sign outside the gym?



'Cause we're so Olympic!

My only other shot today was thisone, a modified picture of my wonderful date book! I wouldn't say I can't live without it... but it sure makes life and remembering things easier!!
ebilflindas 11 years ago
Excellent news, your return to the gym--good luck! Make sure you put your gym dates in your appointment book! ;-)

Not to jinx ya, but now that you've got yourself back in the gym, I'll bet you get called back for at least one job--and they'll want you right away and so much that you'll consider letting the gym slide by...but don't! You can do it!
'stee 11 years ago
that sign begs the question: are there a discus-throwing facilities in the gym? :D

It must be a huge gym to accommodate discus throwers. ;)

Good for you, for returning to the gym for regular work outs. I've never done the gym thing, but have worked out at home with weights and on a Nordic-trak ski machine.

I prefer to just walk, and Alison and i walk a lot around our part of town. We have two grocery stores, a pharmacy, a liquor store, the post office, and many restaurants within walking distance of our home. So we get plenty of exercise every day. And we save on fuel for the car, too.

AliThinks 11 years ago
Ah, good for you! And despite what Allan said, I feel guilty, because I have a membership at Curves, and I haven't been there in 10 days!

I hope your work-thing is going to end well :)
I decided this year to go to the gym but it's still closed after a fire. I hope they'll re-open soon!
sunshinecity 11 years ago
oh I've never been one for self discipline... I'd never get anything done if I stayed at home and relied on that for my excercise... even when I was on a diet (by doctor's orders...) I went to a dietitian who helped me and I had regular appointments every week... only when I know I'm being forced or check up can I get the job done... I'm terrible!! LOL
IT sure feels good knowing I'm making that effort again though!

The funny thing is, I know I'm going to find myself in a pickle, in a matter of days... I just know it!
I already got this first job. I'm going to be collaborating with press releases, helping a friend of my cousin's get organized and promote this exhibit. I've already taken the job (it's only for a month), but just watch me get called in for the other one too!!!
Why is it "ALL or NOTHING"??

no discus throwing... appalling huh?

thanks... I thought the B&W made it a bit more interesting and sticking! LOL
5 days a week is insane! You won't catch me doing that!!

Wow, a fire? That sucks! Hope you get back in action soon!
ebilflindas 11 years ago
Because you are never given anything you can't handle!

Like Tim Gunn says, "Make it work!"
sunshinecity 11 years ago
lol ok I feel better knowing you're not a nutso!

ahahaha omg I LOVE Tim Gunn... I'm gonna work it baby, like no other! You betcha!!!

Day 30 ~ January 30th 2007

It was a good day!

the lighthouse

I had a meeting... I got offered a collaboration.
I've been asked to help with press releases for an important exhibit that is in it's 13th edition. I'll be dealing with researching and contacting all relevant people in TV, press and radio and send out the press releases.
It's only a project that will last a because seeing as press conference will be held on march 1st, and the exhibit opens on march 22nd, but it'll be pretty interesting!
We have yet to discuss monetary compensation... so I'm curious about that too... all in due course.

As for my pictures... I was glad to be out! It was a pretty chilly day, but there was the most amazing gorgeous blue sky and a lovely warm sun... it felt good to be outdoors... I think the few photos I took reflect that, right?

This and today's other pictures (see "the outtakes") were all taken at a lighthouse not too far from my house. The area is called the Gianicolo Hill, also known as the The Janiculum and the lighthouse is called Il Faro del Giancicolo (The Gianicolo Lighthouse). .

congrats!!! It's great to see you're on the good path.. ; )) ooh.. btw.. I don't use to agree with tags or paintings in walls, and less in this kind of nice monument, but I can't avoid a smile when I see the one over there.. it makes me think on a huge painting we had on my street (yup.. in the floor) several years ago.. it said the same... "Glòria t'estimo!".. simple demonstration of love : )) (sigh)

lol thanks!!

are you referring to the statue or the graffiti?? I don't like graffiti either, but that place is so beautiful... the horrible spray paint writing just fades away!

that's so sweet, thank you! It's fun to share with all of you, you all feel like my extended family!

Yes it can be a couple's spot, but mainly at night... I pass there often on my way home so I just had to stop today! I figured you'd all enjoy the outing!!

yep, let's hope the rain stays away... and oh yes, I welcome money!!

thanks!
overge PRO 11 years ago
oh.. it was more the "grafitti" concept than the actual vandalic act.. I meant the "GLORIA TI AMO" phrase made me think on the past.. on that "GLÒRIA T'ESTIMO" (which actually, now that I think, wasn't GLÒRIA but MIREIA.. but well :P) and made me wonder why, even those simple words, make us feel so much.. : ))

Here's to being outdoors, even when it is chilly. I like this thing we have here because it forces me to get out doors. Really out doors--outside the house--outside the car, and for a good hour and a half at a stretch. I would not be doing it if I did not feel driven to get a cool photo or two before midnight. I like the tower you shot. It looks like it was a crisp clean day for you.
satrina* 11 years ago
I go away for a weekend and come back to lots of pics and comments.

First, your lingerie shot was very well done, so nothing to worry about there. Your blanket sounds really cozy, wish I had one... ah! if only I was crafty but nope, that's not one of my virtues. About the gym, it's great that you go, I was just today seriously considering to join one because I really need it and finally, congratulations on that project, you should tell us how it goes.

For the sake of journalism and continuity, I'm writing this as if it were being written on the actual day I took the photo.

January 31st 2007 ~ day 31

It was a pretty busy day.
I had a 2nd interview with the Big Wigs from the "L" company...
They liked me, they want to see me again tomorrow. This could be something BIG! I've got 2 things to possibly juggle.. I'm sort of keeping my ass on two saddles, if ya will... but right now some things need to happen before I can make a decision.

On my way home I stopped to take some pictures in my neighbourhood. I thought this tag was rather ironic, seeing as lately I'm all but that!!

Oh yeah??

If you're wondering what that little card is... it's the back to my new Moo cards. And just like me, they rock too!! Oh and yeah... the card is sitting in the rock salt box.... get it?? Rock salt... I rock?? LOL I'm dumb! But hey, I'm allowed to be dumb, I'm officially employed now.... goes without saying I had to turn the PR job down, but it's cool. This is the way I want it!

day 33 ~ February 2nd

It was a wonderfully sunny day today! I was in a great mood, naturally.. ad not just because of the sunshine, though that's always a plus!
It was a fairly laid back morning. Then I went to meet an friend (an ex co-worker) for lunch. We chatted, informed her of my news and just chilled.
I also had an appointment with the Job agency to go and sign my contract, but seeing as I got done early with lunch, I decided to go kill some time in the park and take some photos.
This gave me a good chance to walk around in the sun. This park is so beautiful... it's such a shame I don't go there more often.
It was so peaceful and quiet at that time of day, around 1.30pm!

I shot a lot of great pictures I think.The sky was just gorgeous... but think today's pick has to be the one below, simply because of what it represents... you can almost interpret the tree as me, as I stand proud. (I'm referring to my latest achievement of course, my new job). I know I've been going on about it a bit, but I don't think many of you know how hard it is to find a good job here in Italy right now, the market is pretty saturate right now.

I stand proud

Great analogy with the tree. Congratulations once again on the job.

That is such a cool shot. The weather is much different here today. We had measurable snow. About 2-3 inches. Not much, but the most this winter.

And it is supposed to get very cold the next few days. Nighttime temps below zero (ºF).

I'll post a photo of our snow in a bit for my diary today.

I agree, that tree is interesting--and the way its form is repeated in the background...

Lovely photo. The tree just stands out in such a striking way. Well done.

It's funny. You know how people think L.A. is all about beaches and movie stars? I always have this impression Rome is always crowded and a bustle--equally false apparently.

It is hard to imagine any modern city where any place worth being (and many that aren't) is not wall to wall people.

Boy it sure looks serene and peaceful with plenty of solitude to go around.
sunshinecity 11 years ago
absolutely. Rome can be crazy, but I am lucky to live in an area that is very green and there is plenty of space to walk about and relax. Also, lunchtime is a great time to discover Rome, as it's usually the quieter moment of the day, as it is still a very "family oriented" moment. School ends at 1pm so kids come home to eat. It's a pretty big meal here, much like breakfast in the US, for example.
Often even people who work will go home for lunch.

thank you all! Your comments are wonderful and really make me happy. I am pretty proud of the shot and even more excited about the fact that I live so close to such beauty!

I used to come home from work for lunch when I was married to my first wife--except Wednesdays. She told me to never ever come home for lunch on a Wednesday.

I learned my lesson with my first wife. With my second, I laid down the law. I told her I am not going to have any wife of mine having a boyfriend over once a week while I'm at work. No sir! Yup, I told her in no uncertain terms, "While I'm at work, you'd better not have your boyfriend over to the house more than once a year!" Not two times a year, not three, once!
