Blogging ideas!

Hello my freaky Darlings!

I am in a particularly good mood this evening for no particular reason at all.  I have been trying to write a post all day with no idea what to write.  So now that this is my forth go at it I think I finally got it.  Not that it is much. Ha.

Things have been going good here.  Nothing much to report.  I am feeling slightly disheartened when it comes to my job hunt now that I am without a vehicle.  I am trying to stay positive though and remain hopeful.  There is a job fair coming up so I am keeping my fingers crossed.  Maybe I will have to invest in a bike, while still out of my price range it is MUCH cheaper than a new car.  Lol

So I figured I would share a couple of pictures from my car accident.  

The water had gone down at this point thanks to the rain finally letting up after nearly two hours of standing in it.  Even managed to catch myself a small cold. Lol. Guess if that is the worst of it then I am grateful.

In this picture you can see where the water had come up to on the passenger door.  Was pretty crazy.  No I was definitely not in the car when this happened.  Immediately after crashing not even thinking about water levels rising and just worried that no one would see me down in the wash from the road I had decided to get out of the car and get up to the road.  My genius self did decide to try and get back into the car when it started hailing.  After tripping on mesquite roots and falling face first into the water though I quickly realized it was probably not the best idea to try and get back into the car or stay anywhere near the running water.  Lol

After that scary event though the trip went super smooth.  Snapped a picture when going through Dallas, TX.  I had no idea the city was so huge!  Thankfully traffic wasn't that bad.

This picture isn't even a small portion of the city.  But I like how the picture came out.

Other than that when we finally did make it to my new home after getting some rest, settled in a bit, and getting some much needed bf time, we took a trip to D.C. it was a load of fun and I am eager to go back since I feel like there is still so much to see there.  

First thing we did was get some food.  Like I mentioned broke the vegetarian diet a couple of times and this would be one of them.  Ahahaha!  No regrets!  Some of the best seafood ever.  Eyes were definitely bigger than our bellies for sure.  Can't say it was the cheapest but it wasn't unreasonable and we got more than we could eat.  We got probably as fresh as it gets crab and shrimp watched it get steamed with some Old Bay thrown on it and handed to us in a paper sack.  Blue Shell Crab is definitely not my favorite.  Just can't get past having to pick around the "mustard" (crab guts) to get to the meat.  But jumbo, and when I say jumbo I mean jumbo, shrimp... oh sweet Freya it was wonderful.

After nearly putting ourselves into a food comas we walked from the Warf and to the Washington Monument.

Yeah check them clouds out.  We got to experience some east coast weather.  Actually used the Washington Monument as a rain shield for a good 20 minutes.  We finally said "What the heck!  The rains not going anywhere lets just go".  So we went out into the rain deserting our rain shield and literally 5 minutes later the rain stopped.  Go figure.

We got to see The Reflection Pool.  Was very cool.

Of course we saw the Capital Building.  You would be surprised, or at least I was, at how far apart all this is despite being able to see all of them within each others distance.

After going into New Jersey to see my Aunt and cousins we all took a trip into New York.  A lot more walking and was fun as well as equally exhausting. 

Fun picture of my cousin with Batman.  The fact that she had a Batman shirt on just made it funnier.


Couple of pictures from Ground Zero. 

Bright lights of Time Square.

As fun as New York was this was definitely a welcomes sight.  City is way way way to busy for me.  Definitely takes a particular kind of individual to live in that city.

So other than that while trying to figure out some ideas for writing topics I came across this on the wonderful pinterest.  I thought it was pretty neat and I do like some of the ideas listed.

So who knows you may see some of these popping up here and there.

Well I hope you are all doing well.  I have been trying to keep up with everyone despite my lack of posting.  I think I need to do a little reading list clean up.  I find myself searching through my list for particular blogs to read.  =)  I leave you guys with this picture my sister sent me that left me smiling.


  1. Wow! Your accident was so dramatic! It is really scary seeing the car sitting in that much water! So glad you are ok!

    One day I will get to see NYC too! Although I am not sure about the crowds and the spooky, dark subway!

    1. I thought the same thing when my brother showed me the pictures since he is the one that took them. I am just glad the water wasn't running that much when I actually crashed. The water wasn't very high when I got out, hense the reason I thought that I might be able to get back in.

      NYC is definitely worth seeing at least once for sure. You definitely have to be prepared to deal with crowds though. So many people! I avoided the subway and just walked everywhere. Lol We walked nearly 5 miles that day. From the Staten Island Ferry Station to Ground Zero, Empire State Building, and then to Time Square. Then it was only like a $17 dollar cab ride back to the Ferry Station cuz none of us wanted to walk back.

      I do have to say if you ever get the chance to go and want to go up the Empire State Building wait until it is like 9 P.M. by then the crowd to go up as significantly thinned out. Plus it is a pretty amazing sight to see all the lights of NYC from so high up.

  2. I was a little shocked to see that picture of your car in a ditch and read about the accident. I hope you are doing ok now!

    1. Yes I am doing just fine. All injuries sustained that day were from when I tripped. Which is a normal occurrence in my life. =) I am just glad that I was able to avoid traffic and no one else was involved.

  3. Oh my gosh that accident looks awful! But DC looks so amazing I'm glad you had a great time!
