Life Is What Happens When You Make Plans

I realized this morning that today should have been the first day after the completion of my 365Project – my digital diary of taking a daily photo for a year. On March 17th I posted my last photo and blog entry because life is what happens when you make plans.

I was dedicated to my photo project. I had every intention of seeing it through. I had done a 365Project before and knew I could do it again. But once again, life is what happens when you make plans.

I cannot say that I will blog anymore after this post. I now have a time-consuming day job that requires me to write all day long, and the last thing I think about when I log out at 5:30pm is typing another sentence. But for my own satisfaction of seeing things through I felt compelled to put together a slide show of photos that I captured during my days between mid March until now. So, let the show begin…

December to Remember: Unwrapped Present [209/365]

The Texas OutlawLadies, if you spent any time in the D.C. area during the 90s and attended a bachelorette party this guy may look familiar to you.  My buddy Marco Washington, aka The Texas Outlaw, was kind enough to help me surprise my friend and co-worker on her birthday.  Not with a dance – just a quick appearance to deliver her a sunflower and a hug.  I didn’t realize he was going to show up at the TV station with only a vest on.  Politically, my bosses weren’t too happy but behind closed doors they told me it was a nice treat for them as well!

December to Remember: At Great Length [199/365]

The Short and Long of ItIt was the early 90s.  Halle Berry burst onto the scene sporting that sassy short hair.  I wanted a change and her haircut was my inspiration.  My hairdresser was so excited to cut it, and I remember the reaction of so many of my male friends who were less than excited to see me sans lion mane.  To this day it always amazes me how men have such a strong opinion about how females wear their hair.

December to Remember: Ponytails [192/365]

PonytailsAs a kid, two swinging braids held by colored plastic ball hair bands while wearing a Peter Pan collared uniform shirt was my go-to school day wardrobe.  But with any mood swing during adolescence, I know this wide grin was not always a guarantee.  As an adult, I bet if I decided to don this look chuckles and giggles would abound.  Maybe I’ll try it one day.

December to Remember: Underhanded [191/365]

Volleyball Underhand ServeWith my Swiss Miss braids and lips sucked in, my concentration was intense during this volleyball game.  This took place during the annual T&C Field Day, where the students and faculty joined together for a full afternoon of playing.  It was like recess on steroids.  There were also organized games of basketball, softball, volleyball, and dodge ball.  We even had potato sack races.  Oh the 70s!

December to Remember: Ease on Down [189/365]

Spring Festival - The WizMy elementary school, The Town & Country Day School, had a Spring Festival every year.  For the festival my 1st grade year my mother made me a blue and white dress and transformed me into Dorothy Gale.  I twirled into the multipurpose room as if I was caught in the eye of a tornado.  Then, danced my little heart out as I eased on down the road with my fellow classmates.  I still have the dress hanging in one of my closets; it’s such a sweet keepsake.
