So um, I missed yesterday, so I’ll do two today.
Day 7: a silhouette
Day 8: a close up photo
These posts are becoming lame…I need to think of something witty.
So since I haven’t done this in like forever, I’m going to do a few today! I did not take these all for this purpose...these are just some I took over the past few days.
Day 5: a photo of whatever you please. I please:
Day 6: A photo from a low angle.
That is all.
This post was inspired by this image.
I’m not saying it’s not sad that Steve Jobs died. It is. You’re right, he was extremely successful and his company makes great products. It is sad, but it’s also sad that the guy across town died.
Everyone cared when Jobs died. On average, 5,000 die every day from AIDS. No one cares.
I know, everyone knew who Steve Jobs was. Chances are, you probably didn’t know anyone who died from AIDS on October 5th. I didn’t, but why does that make them less important?
Aren’t all created equal?
Well, yeah, but it is more sad when someone dies young.
Okay..yeah. Jobs was 56.
1 in every 6 African dies before age 5.
Tell me that’s not sad.
Well that’s Africa. This is America.
Jobs died from cancer.
It’s projected that in 2011, 571,950 American people will lose their battle with cancer.
It is really sad that Jobs died, but it’s also sad when anyone dies from cancer. No one acknowledges that though.
This guy dies June 25, 2009.
It was huge news. People all over the country cried.
Every 30 seconds a child dies from Malaria.
Well, I’ve never met them.
Prettttyy sure most of the people who mourned Michael Jackson’s death didn’t know him.
Yes, Jackson was an international star. No one knew the kid who died from Malaria.
Aren’t we all created equal?
Why do we all care when someone famous dies, but no one cares when a person we’ve never met dies?
Why is that?
I am not trying to a pull a ‘holier than thou’ thing here.
I’m just as guilty.
On October 5th, I didn’t think about the thousands of people who died that day, but I thought about Steve Jobs’ death.
It’s a constant struggle. You don’t want to be down all the time because you are constantly thinking about all the poverty and disease in the world. But it should affect us more. You don’t want to forget about it.
I think it’s a balance. A balance which is hard to achieve.
I’m definitely not there. I don’t think I know anyone who is there.

Day 3 on this 30 days of photos thing is a photo of your favorite place to be.
I don’t really have an all-time favorite place to be at..I mean..I don’t really count places that aren’t…only because I couldn’t actually go anywhere far away to take a picture. I mean I guess I could, but I didn’t.
So I picked my favorite place to be at the exact time I was thinking about this.
On the couch watching Mary Poppins while drinking tea and wearing a snuggie.
Shortly after the publishing of the post, I will be on the couch, with tea, watching Mary Poppins.
Okaaay. So I was like, “I will do this everyday.”
It’s been 4 days since I did day 1. Oops.
Anyway, day 2 is a picture of what you wore today.
I am not gonna lie, I am looking pretty glamorous today.
Sweatpants and a t-shirt.
I am known for my impeccable fashion sense.
So remember in May when I was like, “hey I’m going to this 30 days of photos thing.” Pfffft. I got to day 7, I think. As I was going through it, I was like..oh..I don’t actually like this..
SO! I’m trying a different one.
I actually read all of them before starting this one.
Yep. So, here is day 1! (I actually did this twice, two days in a row…I sort of really like to wear ugly makeup and use insane amounts of hair products)
