Being Productive

Things New


News Today my mom told me that my sister's boyfriend heard a rocket launching at Vandenburg Airforce base. So I searched the web to see what I could find about it. According to Space Archive, this was a satellite launch. The local news channel CBS in Los Angeles said they could see it lift off. My family is in that area so that makes lots of sense.
Cooking
I started cooking this meal five days ago. I looked up the recipe on my favorite site and found the Shrimp Florentine with Zoodles recipe. I had to peel the shrimp, which took so long (20 mins) that I got hungry and stopped. I went to a BBQ and didn't cook that day. I was in pain from my teeth, then got them pulled and couldn't eat for several days. Finally, I cooked the whole meal according to the recipe except for missing red pepper leaves and adding cheese. The shrimp was over-cooked, so it was falling apart. It tasted good but I was disappointed in myself and proud to have cooked something new.

When To Cut Ties


I have a friend that comes around and causes havoc in my life. He is an old boyfriend. He is a nice person generally but he serves a master that I no longer want to serve, addiction. I have told him that I want to change, and work on my issues but he hasn't heeded my words. Since his addiction is his master, everyone else will be put aside. He lives in my apartment complex which makes it harder to get rid of him.
So I thought that I could explain to him my desires and wants, hoping he was a true friend and respect them. I was mistaking. He backed off for awhile and gave me some room but he feeds off my weaknesses. He is an Energy Vampire. He sucks all the energy and life out of me so that I can not move forward in my life. So guess what, I had to try something different to get him to leave me alone.
My next attempt was to post a sign on my door most of the time to keep him from knocking on my door. He has ignored the sign more times than he should. I don't th…

Automated Delivery

I just watched a video about an automated delivery service that may be created by Dominoes. Wow! Well, the car will drive up, you will punch in some type of code and the a hatch will open up with your pizza in it. If the seal is tampered with, you are not obligated to take the pizza. The car will thank you and then drive away. I think I would love to participate in a project like that. I am not sure how may companies will start doing this but I think it could be profitable.

I haven't used the car share ride services yet, let alone the #Uber food delivery service. Please leave a comment below about what you guys think about this post.

Oreo Cookie: Android OS and Cookie

Image
Which Would You Prefer? I will start with some history on both to give them both a fair chance of choice. I am not providing exact history just #wikipedia and some articles found online. I just want to see peoples choices and their opinions listed in the comments below.
Oreo Cookie The Oreo Biscuit was created by #Nabisco 1912 when they were called the "National Biscuit Company". It was created to copy another cookie from Sunshine but I think the Oreo tasted better. The filling was accomplished by Sam Porcello. They have some many colors and flavors for the filling. My favorite is the "Gay Pride Oreo" that was an advertisement listed on #Facebook.
Android Oreo This is the new name of Android's new OS. It's about to come out but here is the video from #Android to explain it: 
I love watching this show to learn about Android and their personal experience with this OS. I watch "AllAboutAndroid" to find the latest info on my phone issues. I know that…

Little Vietnamese Man

I was waiting by the bus stop to meet a friend for breakfast. This little old man came up to me and said hello. His eyes were leveled with my breast, so of course, he kept looking at them. He asked where I worked twice, and I told him twice I go to school. I told him I lived at the building down the street. He asked if I was single. Then he asked," It's been a long time without boyfriend?". I said a few months. Then he asked to be my friend, and of course, how do you say no to a little old man. He told me he was from Vietnam. He must have been at least 60 something. He had the light color ring around his pupil.

What is really funny, is that a friend of mine is usually with me when I am walking on Colfax and notices that men think I am a working woman. In this case, I had casual work clothes on. I don't know if anyone likes this blog or at least has stuff like this happen to them please comment on this blog. This was a post from 2014.

Creative Recycling

Recycling Everyday Items I started getting emails that showed me how to recycle toilet paper rolls, then something in my head said recycle everything you can that you throw away. I first thought of how I have old clothes that has holes or doesn't fit. I figured I can search the web to find a way to recycle them. Everyone always has cardboard around the house, we could use it for art or find another creative way to keep it. I have also seen old coffee canisters reused as storage. So my way of giving back to the planet is to recycle/ reuse mostly because of the lack of funds and the environment.
Things In The Recycle Bin We are told by local government and the news to recycle plastics, aluminum, cardboard, and paper to say the least. I think there are several ways to do this. We can reuse a lot of cardboard as art and storage. Old boxes card be decorated to be storage bins. My favorite is a post I saw from All Things Paper blog.
I have also seen some cool plastic bottle reuses. Som…

Time For A Change

Starting A Business
I decided that it is time to start my business from home. I have been talking about this for years but when I heard some news about #Trump getting rid of subsidize housing, I realize my situation may change at any moment. I have a dual diagnosis and it makes it hard to complete goals, work, and sometimes function. I can't wait for these things to improve I have to start now!
I have started with making neck soothers (neck wraps). They are made with rice and scented oils. You can use them hot or cold. I want to also add some bags to the site. Everyone is starting to bring their own bags to the store or wherever and this will keep a money flow. One of the other projects I want to add is things homeless people can use while on the streets. This way I can take a portion of profits for the homeless and a little to make the products. For example, I saw this traveling roll that is made just for carrying hygiene that the homeless could benefit from.
So I am using my do…
