Day 2113: Now You See Me 2

We all need do something for ourselves every once in a while – that’s what I’ve realized.

It’s 1 : 20  PM on day 2113 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Isaiah 41:10, learn one new thing – The pigeon is one of only three bird species (the others being flamingos and male emperor penguins) known to produce ‘milk’ to feed their young. In pigeons the milk starts to be produced in the crop of the parent birds two days before eggs hatch.- have breakfast, hang out with family and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    – raised $6 480 only  $6 020 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far 🙂 ).

 

Yesterday I went to watch Now You See Me 2 with my sister and her friends I loved everything about the movie the plot and the tricks were great I would recommend to anyone who is the mood for a good movie.

Day 2021: The Theory of Everything

There should be no boundaries to human endeavour. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope. – Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything

 

It’s 12 : 19 PM on day 2021 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 2 John 1,  have breakfast, learn one new thing –Since pitch is such a close proxy for frequency, it is almost entirely determined by how quickly the sound wave is making the air vibrate and has almost nothing to do with the intensity, or amplitude, of the wave.  –   have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – yesterday Laura donated $40 and Julie  donated $25 (thanks so much Laura and Julie :) ) which brings the total raised to raised $3 822 only $2 428  more to raise by 10 Jan 2017  (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far :)  ).

 

Yesterday I watched The Theory of Everything – a movie about the life of Stephen Hawking – Stephen Hawking is proof that one’s physical abilities (or lack thereof) doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with one’s intellectual capacity I liked the movie anyone who loves stories of triumph should definitely watch this movie.

Day 1914: Interstellar

There’s a lot of thought and time that goes into the making of true art – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 8 :  37 AM on day 1824 of my journey towards independence and day 10 of our India trip 2015 prayed, read 1 Corinthians 6, learn one new thing – Elucidate [e·lu·ci·date] v. Make (something) clear; explain. “The presentation will help to elucidate the project.” – and listened to music.

 

Yesterday I watched Interstellar – a movie about a team of people that go in search of life on other planets (I think) – it was the most epic movie although it was a movie mostly set in space it explored the themes of love and time.

Day 1746: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

“Walter Mitty: To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” ― James Thurber

 

It’s 12 : 23 PM on day 1746 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray,  read Zephaniah 1, publish my Disability of the Day feature,    learn one new thing – he phenomenon commonly called a shooting star is actually the visible trail of a meteor as it enters Earth’s atmosphere. Scientists believe that up to 10,000 tons of meteors fall to the Earth every day, most no bigger than a speck of dust–    feed myself baked beans with bread  for breakfast, promote my Educate Generations campaign – $3 145 raised so far  – and hang out with my sister.

 

 

Yesterday my sister and I watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – a movie about an average Joe who goes to Iceland to find a missing photograph negative and the photographer – it was a nice movie that reminded me of the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

Day 1565: Gone Girl Review

“Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men — friends, coworkers, strangers — giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much — no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version — maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain.” – Gillian Schieber Flynn, Gone Girl

 

It’s 11 : 03 AM on day 1565 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth,  read Isaiah 50,   publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself  for breakfast and promote my Educate Generations campaign–my parents donated $10 yesterday (thanks mom and dad) which brings my total raised to $1 265  only $1 235 more to raise to reach goal :)

 

Recently I watched Gone Girl the movie is about a scorned woman who tries to frame her cheating husband for her murder I would give it a 9 out of 10 it’s a bit graphic but I would recommend it to everyone over the age of 16.

Day 1558: Mockingjay Part 1 Review

“I have a message for President Snow: You can torture or bombed us, blasted our district to the grounds. But do you see that ? Fire Is Catching… If we burn, you burn with us!” – Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay Part 1

 

It’s 12 : 03 PM on day 1558 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth,  read Isaiah 43,   publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself a peanut butter sandwich and a banana for breakfast and  promote my Educate Generations campaign– still on $1 190  I know God will answer my prayers when he has a free moment he’s just busy what with children being killed and people being taken hostage I am willing to wait I know that the world doesn’t revolve around me and my “problems”.

 

A couple of days ago I watched Mockingjay Part 1 the movie started with Katniss after she was rescued from the second Hunger Games and ended shorty after President Snow attacked District 13 I know this movie is fictional but there are aspects of it that reflect reality President Snow reminded me of the terrorists of the world and Katniss Everdeen reminded me of people who stand up against injustice in all its forms all in all it was a good movie I enjoyed it.

Day 1429: Rest in peace Robin Williams

Don’t judge someone else’s life because you don’t know what they’re going through behind closed doors – that’s what I learned today.

 

It’s 12  : 35  PM on day 1429 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray, read Psalm 117,   publish my Disability of the Day feature,   feed myself bran flakes with banana for breakfast, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles,stretch my hamstrings and prepare for my  upcoming campaign – my laptop’s charger stopped working which wouldn’t be so bad if I saved everything I needed onto my cloud drive but since I didn’t I had to rewrite my campaign video’s script lucky for me I have a good memory.

 

This morning I was saddened to read that Robin Williams died of suspected suicide even though I didn’t know him personally he was a part of my life I loved watching Flubber, Patch Adams and many of his other movies. Rest in peace Robin Williams thank you for the laughter and joy you brought into my life.

 

Day 1387: The Fault in Our Stars

“Augustus, perhaps you’d like to share your fears with the group.”
“My fears?”
“Yes.”
“I fear oblivion,” he said without a moment’s pause. “I fear it like the proverbial blind man who’s afraid of the dark.”
“Too soon,” Isaac said, cracking a smile.
“Was that insensitive?” Augustus asked. “I can be pretty blind to other people’s feelings.”
― John GreenThe Fault in Our Stars

 

It’s 12  : 09 PM on day 1387 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, watch TV, read Psalm 74,  publish my Disablity of the Day feature, promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – still on 89% (God help me)  I know two people who would donate the $104.60 I need to reach goal but I won’t ask them to because they are retired I can’t possibly put them in a position where they have to say no to me it’s just wrong I want to reach my goal but I would never ask people to sacrifice themselves to help me God will help me reach my goal another way  –  practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles and stretch my hamstrings.

 

Yesterday afternoon I watched The Fault in Our Stars – a movie based on a book about Gus and Hazel who fall in love knowing they would soon die of cancer – I cried during some parts of the movie because it’s a true reflection of life we all know that none of us get out of life alive and yet most of us choose to live and love to the fullest.

Day 1359: Front of the Class

Everyone, regardless of ability or disability, has strengths and weaknesses. Know what yours are. “Build on your strengths and find a way around your weaknesses.” ~ Brad Cohen

 

It’s 12  : 10 PM on day 1359 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, read Psalm 46,  publish my Disability of the Day feature, promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – no donations –  feed myself  Oats  for breakfast,  promote my campaign some more – no donations –  practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, stretch my hamstrings, spend time outside  and continue promoting my campaign – still no donation honest to God if I had a middle name it would be Perseverance.   .

 

Two days ago I watched Front of the Class – an American drama film based on the inspiring true story book written by Brad Cohen, Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had, co-authored by Lisa Wysocky – watching this movie made me realize all successful people with “disabilities” have perseverance in common. Watch Front of the Class below:
