Internet Tuesday

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

I stayed up until early Tuesday morning joining other sites, Virily and Ello. I plan to stay on Niume to promote my artwork, but I want to do other creative tasks on Virily. I joined Ello, but the site seems to mess up my computer because the screen keeps going black. Maybe the graphics or pictures are too much for my computer. So, I am not sure if that site will work out, but it seems like another interesting site because it is for artists who want to promote their work. I did scan my computer with Malwarebyte Anti-Malware, but it didn’t find anything.

I woke up, took a shower, and turned on my computer because I wanted to promote my artwork on Niume as well as start interacting on the new blogging site, Virily. I had some issues on the new site, in which was preventing me from logging into the site, but one of the site’s contacts helped me work on these issues. I worked on building up my status because I am currently a newbie on this site, despite the annoying lagging which was slowing me down. I submitted two or three blogs as well as photographs, but I am still waiting to see if my articles are approved. I didn’t draw today because I was stuck on the internet blogging and promoting artwork.

Ace of Swords card has to do with a blessing from God, in which you will receive inspiration and insights. You will get useful news. It has to do with personal development and progress. Write down all the ideas that you get today, and move from there on these ideas to improve your financial situation. There is also a potential for a man and woman to meet at an event, workshop, or meetup, and they will get together because they will realize they are meant for each other. (Well, I stayed home all day, working on the internet, so I am not sure if I received any insightful and helpful news).

Queen of Swords card has to do with growing and learning, enabling you to finally reach the level of a professional or expert at something. You are very focused and positive, moving forward and ahead.

King of Pentacles card has to do with being good with handling your finances and career.

These 3 cards add up to 3, and the number 3 means new beginnings, communication, and expression.

Memorial Day 2017

Monday, May 29, 2017

Kitchen Couture Sandwich Press by Dash

Since today is Memorial Day, I remember that the yoga instructor stated that there won’t be any classes on Monday. But I woke up early, anyway, and I worked on another page for my graphic novel. I did the drawing and most of the coloring before I decided to stop for lunch. I made one grilled vegan cheese sandwich with my pink Sandwich Press Maker. Since the vegan loafs of bread are kind of big, one sandwich fit better inside the grill press, even though it was made for two sandwiches. If I use small bread pieces, like maybe English muffin, then I might make two sandwiches. Anyway, I decided to make a hot cacao drink with mini vegan marshmallows. Then, I turned on my computer to noticed that time is 4:44 pm. Maybe I need to look for signs when I go on the internet.

It is now 8 pm, and I am watching a Meryl Streep movie, Florence Foster Jenkins. I made a cup of Turkish Cup, and then I went on the computer. All of the sudden, I noticed that time is 8:19 pm. I am just not getting the signs, just the numbers.

Page of Swords card has to do with being inexperienced but eager to learn. You are looking around, searching, with an open mind, willing to connect.

The Fool card, 0 card, has to do with conception and coming together to create a new beginning. You will notice something new on this day, and it will be a blessing from God.

Ace of Wands card has to do with passion and desire to grow something into a paid job.

These 3 cards add up to 2. The number 2 means cooperation, enthusiasm, and relationship.

(I didn’t notice anything new today because it was the same routine, whether working on my own project or going on the internet)

Spiritual Messages for week of 5.29.17 to 6.4.17

Holiday card has to do with finding the answer you are searching for for a vacation, retreat, or holiday getaway. (This Memorial Day weekend was a 3-day weekend, which is usually used for a mini vacation, retreat or getaway. But I didn’t go anywhere).

New Career card has to do with work focus will be shifting in a positive, new, and successful direction, which appears to be strong. (My career shift has been on applying for graphic design jobs on Linkedin, which I have submitted many resumes, but no interviews yet. I am also hoping to get something started on Niume, although I recently heard that they are having issues. But many people there are still trying to keep it going. So, who knows…).

Walk Away card has to do with leaving an unhealthy situation and enjoy new doors that will soon open for you. (I am not sure what this unhealthy situation is as well as where these “new doors” are).

Casual Coffee Day

Sunday, May 28, 2017

I woke up early today, ate breakfast, drew one page, and made grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, with my Sandwich Press. I made a cup of Turkish coffee and browsed on the internet, checking out different sites, and promoting my artwork on Niume, even though they stopped paying. Then, I noticed the time at 5:55 pm. While playing City Girl Life game, I noticed that today is Casual Coffee Day, and by 8 pm, I decided to make a cup of Turkish coffee. All of the sudden, I glanced at the time to notice 8:19 pm. Where is this leading?

He sets out three reversed cards.

King of Wands card is reversed.  You might be experiencing a lack of direction because you might be focusing on too many things at the same time and there isn’t any goal. You need to set some goals. (This sounds true…).

The 6 of Wands card is reversed. There will be an opportunity to get noticed by others, which will lead to success.

The 3 of Cups card is reversed. And, your success will lead to making more and new friends.

These 3 cards add up to 10, and the number 10 reduces to 1. The number 1 means leader, taking action and taking charge, and moving forward. You can create whatever you want and move forward.

Detox Continues


Saturday, May 27, 2017

I worked on a page for my graphic novel. Then, I remembered that I needed to go to Mother’s Market because Gumby is out of litter for his box. I got one small jar of peanut butter to use as bait for the mouse trap in the Hold & Release Trap. I also bought some veganic bread and vegan cheese for the sandwich maker I bought. I have always liked making grilled cheese sandwiches, but I used to make mine in a toaster oven. I also got some raw vegan wraps and some vegan jerky snacks.

He uses these old looking Swiss Tarot Cards, which looks vintage and antique but he states it is traditional.

Roi de Coupe card is King of Cups in French. He is the ideal man for marriage. You appear to be very emotionally secure and stable. Certain suggestions will come up, which will give you some newfound ideas to pursue. (I posted some blogs and photos on Niume, but I suddenly noticed that they stopped sharing revenue).

Valet de Baton card is Page of Wands in French. It is about being inexperienced and learning something new. (I am not sure what that is).

Chevalier des Batons card is the Knight of Wands in French. You will have a new passion for pursuing, which will lead you to eventually become an expert in that area or idea.

These 3 cards add up to 3, and the number 3 means expression in new beginnings.

This video reading was interesting because it reminded me of some French words from college years.

I woke up in the morning, checked my alarm clock and noticed it was 5 am, which is way too early. So, I went back to bed. I woke up again at 7:30 am and wondered why my alarm didn’t go off at 6 am. I guess I must have forgotten to set my alarm clock. I got up and did my regular morning routine, and remember that today is trash pickup day, in which is anytime between 8 am and 11 am. So, I took out the trash. I did some morning errands, which included dropping by the post office as well as going to the gas station. Then, I drove to the Spectrum Center for a yoga class at noon. After yoga, I returned to eat a snack, feed Gumby some dry food, and then work on my graphic novel.

While on Facebook checking on things, I glance at the time to notice 8:19 pm.

The Emperor card, 4th card, has to do with being excited about a new idea or venture, or a man might tell about an interesting idea. (Someone on Facebook told me about a blogging site, Niume).

Queen of Swords card has to do with a Widow. But you might be too logical, and feel it won’t lead you anywhere, and you might ignore this opportunity. (I considered ignoring this blogging site, but I decided to join and blog for fun to promote my artwork).

The 2 of Cups card is in reverse, and it appears that you might not be compatible with this person because you don’t like his ideas. (This site is just another blogging site).

These cards add up to 7, and the number 7 means mind and creativity.

Drawing and Blogging

It is 12 am on a Thursday early morning, and I still haven’t slept yet. As I was browsing on Facebook, just before bedtime, someone told me about Niume. So, I decided to check it out. I did my profile page there and set everything up.

I worked on a page all morning, and then I went on Niume to start blogging. So far, I have done three posts on that site. I read other people’s posts, and I noticed that there are many artists on the site. I liked some posts and added some comments on different posts.  I decided to not go to Michaels yet because today’s video reading got me thinking that I don’t need to rush into anything. I should wait a while to make sure before I decide.

I tried the Moroccan Dip, and it was very spicy, which almost burned my mouth. I made a flatbread sandwich with garlic spread and Moroccan dip, and tasted really good, like a tasty pizza, folded into a flat sandwich. I also tried the Know Brainer vegetarian creamer for coffee, and it tasted OK, but it has 200 calories. It would be good for my breakfast, with my morning coffee.

Caval Di Coppe card, which is the Friend card; it is also similar to the Knight of Cups card. You might be extreme and reckless, and if you want something badly enough, you will go and get it right away without thinking about the situation. You might be also seeking someone or something that will complete you and make you whole. You might feel that you are lacking something in your life. You might be feeling a certain void and emptiness in the morning, and you might try to fill it with stuff. (I was considering going to Michaels to buy terrarium items, but maybe I need to think about it first because it might be a waste of money as well as I don’t have space for it anywhere).

Il Matto card, which is similar to The Fool card; it is about strangeness. It might lead you to take certain actions that might be wasteful.

The 9 of Wands card is in reverse, in which such actions can lead to a big mess. (It might make a mess because I live with a cat, and they get into everything).

These three cards add up to 10, and number 10 reduces to 1. The number 1 means take charge, action, and fix something. (So, maybe, on Thursday, I will spend the whole day working on my graphic novel because I have many pages to draw. I also started a new blogging site, Niume, because someone told me it is similar to Bubblews, and many people from Bubblews are on there, although I didn’t recognize anyone there on my first day. So far, I posted 3 blogs. I am not sure if they have a daily limit. But, for now, I am just trying to think of blogging ideas).

Networking, Vegan and Detoxing

After yoga, I returned home and changed my clothes in casual monochromatic dusty burgundy drawstring pants with a matching tank top and a little sweater. I kept with the monochromatic color and wore my burgundy booties. I added a burgundy headband with white polka dots, many rings, and bangles as well as hoop earrings, and gold choker. I drove to The District, and went to the jewelry store to buy a watch battery. The woman tried to put one in, but she said that something is wrong with my watch, and a new battery doesn’t work on this watch. I might just buy the watch battery at Michaels, and hope it works on one of my watches. I opened my front door to notice a cute squirrel by the birdfeeders, and it quickly runs toward the backyard. I think it was stealing birdseed. I don’t care. The birdseed is for all the wildlife—birds, squirrels, rabbits, etc., and I hope they all enjoy the seeds. Next, I went to TJ Maxx to buy a picture frame for my latest photo I printed at Canon. Then, I noticed a back-scrubber with a sponge, which I need badly because I don’t do a good job of washing my back with the other thing I have. I noticed a lot of vegan food and gluten-free pasta, which got me excited, as well as some detox teas. I am always detoxing. There was a long line in the store, but when I finished everything, the time was ten minutes till four. I went inside the Bluewater Grill restaurant, and chatted with some people, as I snacked on vegetarian hors d’oeuvres because the other hors d’oeuvres were seafood. I drank coffee and water because I don’t drink liquor and drive. The people there were mostly sales people, which is what I expected. That is why I didn’t go to the other one in Newport Beach that someone invited me to attend, which is a little farther away, and I didn’t know that location.

I returned home to put my photo into its new frame home, in which the frame style looks very rustic but coastal, although the photo is of the Spring Garden Show centerpiece from 2015 of a cute little garden, flowers, water fountain, and monarch butterflies. I kept my photograph inside the transparent protective pocket, but I had to cut off a little bit from the white edges because the photograph was a little bit longer than the frame size. But it showcases the colorful centerpiece nicely.

The 3 Wands cards have to do with your passion, life purpose, and journey.

The 3 of Wands card has to do with going somewhere and making new connections. You will meet lots of people, and broaden your circle of friends and business people. (I socialized at the Mixer, as well as exchanging some business cards, but I don’t think I have anything in common with these people, and it was boring. I think it was mostly for salespeople, in which I am not).

The 8 of Wands card is in reverse, which indicates that you have a clear path with no obstacles.

King of Wands card is in reverse, which indicates Wednesday’s opportunity give success if you grab it and move you forward. It will also be a self-discovery journey.  (I didn’t notice any opportunities today, except for interesting items I needed at TJ Maxx, in which I don’t think are opportunities. What self-discovery journey? My character in my graphic novel is going through a self-discovery journey, but everything about my graphic novel story is fictional).

These 3 cards add up to 12, and the number 12 reduces to 3. The number 3 means expression and new beginnings.

I woke up, fed Gumby, and made my breakfast, before making a cup of Turkish coffee but without any Turkish delight. It was good anyway, as I went to my computer and turned it on to check out different pages. On Facebook, I noticed that there was a local event for Wednesday, and I decided to sign up for it to check it out tomorrow. I don’t have any events today, and I cannot find anything going on today anywhere.  I might go to The District mall later, just to browse around at Michaels and TJ Maxx, for fun, and then maybe stop by at the UTC for a while.

I went to The District to browse around at different stores for errands. I might go back on Wednesday, maybe earlier, after yoga class, and maybe after I return home to change my clothes for the Networking Mixer at 4 pm. There is a jewelry store, in which I need to buy a battery for my watch, and then I might also go to Michaels to get some terrarium items, although I couldn’t find a large glass globe. I have enough props for it, but I just need to buy rocks, sand, and fake greenery. TJ Maxx has interesting items, including a picture frame for my latest photograph that I got printed at Canon Experience Center.

I dropped by at UTC and noticed some new food items at that grocery store. I walked by the indie theater and noticed that Trainspotting and Get Out are still playing. I am considering them but not sure yet. I don’t feel like watching the movie, Get Out, because it is about black/white interracial couple issues. This is getting really old because they have been pushing this issue since the 80s, and this movie is a 2017 movie.

Wheel of Fortune card, 10th, card, tends to be very positive, indicating your fortune is changing to better times ahead. Your life will be happier. You will experience a transition on Tuesday, and your relationships with others will improve, without any conflicts. You will receive a lot of good luck. (It felt like any other day, as I worked on my graphic novel, and then took a break at The District on my errands. I plan to return their tomorrow, after yoga, because I might get stuff at TJ Maxx, Michaels, and buy a watch battery, before going to a Networking Mixer).

The 5 of Swords card is in reverse, which indicates there isn’t any conflict with anyone.

The Lovers card, 6th card, is in reverse, which indicates you might make positive relationships with others. (I didn’t really meet anyone, maybe just salesgirls. But it was peaceful, quiet, and hot).

These cards add up to 21, and the number 21 reduces to 3. The number 3 means expression, communications, and new beginnings. Good luck will enter your life via others.

May 22 is Close Friend Day

Monday, May 22, 2017

Monday, May 22, 2017, is Close Friend Day, according to a post on my Facebook page. I don’t think I have a close friend these days, probably because I am an adult and I am mostly on the internet. I woke up, ate something, and then did some organizing. I wanted to throw out these old tabloid magazines that I got free from other people because I don’t buy such magazines. But, as I browsed through some of them, I remembered the reason that I still haven’t thrown any. I often use them for drawing reference, when I need to draw a certain human pose or a certain scene or object. So, I decided to keep some of the newer ones, and then I took others to the Spring Cleaning dumpster that will be temporarily available until May 30th. When I went to the dumpsters, I noticed it is filled up now, and two men were taking snapshots. I told them that some items can be renovated into a better form or into something useful, and it is also fun to do, but I am not very skillful in that area unless I find something really cool but old, and I can turn it into some kind of vintage art sculpture. I knew a young Asian UCI student who did stuff like that, but I don’t think he lives here anymore. I wonder if he is still renovating discarded items into something cool and useful. At 10:30 am, I drove to the Spectrum gym, relaxed inside the sauna, and then went to the yoga room to stretch on my mat. After one hour of yoga, I went to my car and placed my Dave Koz jazz CD in the slot for the CD. I like his music. He also reminds me of the 80s’-90s’ singer Richard Marx, but I think Marx is a pop artist. When I drove out of the parking lot, I noticed the time was 1:11 pm, but I am not sure what the sign is at that moment. I was just very relaxed but alert, as I was driving home and I decided to take a different route on Alton, just for the hell of it because I was tired of going on Jeffrey-University. I guess I needed a change in driving.

I decided to make a cup of Turkish coffee, but make a higher level than Low, but not quite Low-Medium heat. Yesterday, Turkish coffee that I made on Low heat was still cold. Today’s cup was much better. And, I noticed that I used the last Turkish delight candy.

I took a short nap, and then I made a cup of hot cacao. I then added some vegan almond cream and one vegan marshmallow. I noticed that the cacao looked foamy on top before I added the almond cream. Then, I sprinkled some cinnamon powder on top.

But I mostly drew another page for my graphic novel.

Peche Amour de Paris wine

Sunday, May 21, 2017

I woke up at 8 am, but I felt it was much later for some reason. I drew a page for my graphic novel, after breakfast, and then I decided to drink some Peach-flavored Amour de Paris wine. It is good because it doesn’t really taste like liquor. It tastes more like a sparkling soda drink with a light peach taste. I could easily finish the bottle in one day, especially if I am thirsty and the bottle is cold. I might finish the whole bottle today even though I poured the wine in a polycarbonate wine glass as well as champagne flute, just to drink a little bit with my lunch or for meditation purposes. But I could easily drink it all via the bottle, like a Wino. This wine is a product of France. Last time, I bought Bellini wine, which is also Peach flavored but it is a product of Germany. In my middle age, I have suddenly acquired a sudden interest to sample liquor. An old movie, Let’s Make Love, which stars the annoying Marilyn Monroe, and I am not sure who the rest of the actors are because they are all before my time and probably all dead. The vintage actors that I find most interesting are Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Lucille Ball as well as the whole cast of I Love Lucy sitcom. This weekend’s weather is very hot, although still breezy because I can see the leaves and tree branches fluttering around, hither and thither, just outside of my slide door.

I entered Yoworld, and I was informed that the lead singer of Soundgarden band had recently died at 52. He had died, suddenly and unexpected, by suicide, in the form of a hanging with an exercise band. Wow, I wonder what really happened. It was noted that he had died, right after their performance in Detroit, Michigan, at the Fox Theatre on Wednesday night. They were also scheduled to perform in Ohio on Friday, at the Rock on the Range Festival.

I decided to finish the wine bottle today because it is Sunday, and I just wanted to relax.

Knight of Wands card indicates that you will take action about your current options. (I just worked on my graphic novel).

These 3 cards add up to 13, and the number 13 reduces to 4. And, the number 4 has to do with getting stability, structure, and security.
