The Big Picture

I chose this picture for a couple of reasons. It is New Years being celebrated on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro. More than two million people gathered on this beach to celebrate the new year. I chose this picture because  New Years is the time where everyone throws away the bad memories and mistakes of the previous year and try to make the next one memorable. I know this is going to make me sound ignorant but I never thought of other countries celebrating New Years because for me its watching the ball drop in Times Square so this picture just blew my mind. This is a giant spectacle that shows that no matter where you are from New Years is a chance to start over. The girl in the picture is unknown but she is one of many celebrating. What might be missed about this photo at first glance is the immenseness of the celebration. From the left of the photo traveling along the coast there are fireworks that are literally lighting up the sky. And they aren't backyard fireworks either but the magical "i feel like a little kid" fireworks like at Disney. It tells the story of the New Year being something long awaited and finally there is chance to make up for missed opportunities. The girl is so excited and is just grasping every second of the celebration. Its basically how I feel every year at the same time. I know it is point less to believe your whole life is going to change just because the date changes but there is still hope and its like getting put on the starting line and getting ready to go. It gives you the motivation you need to just go. The picture shows that this feeling is universal. I only wonder what people were really thinking and feeling when they were watching this spectacle unfold. Did they have the same hope that I always have on New Years?

Looking in

My family is really food oriented and the time we really bond is in the kitchen. My dad was teaching me how to make mussles. This is him looking into the pot where he was prepping the sauce.

This is the door to my bedroom. A few years ago I started putting some things on my door. Originally it was just small notes or reminders but then I started adding things that had meaning. I added some post cards  that I just got and some pictures. Now my whole door is full of a conglomeration of pictures,quotes,postcards,notes,dreams, holiday cards, drawings, etc. Each item on my door have a meaning behind them. I have a ton of pictures from some of my favorite vacations like my trip to Universals Harry Potter World (I'm a big Harry Potter fan) and pictures I took on the beach in S. C. during Hurricane Irene. I also have some really inspiring quotes and just random things that I just loved. I also have pictures of places I want to go or things I want to do which inspire me and keep me moving forward. I'm not sure if you can tell but there is a lot of neon colors on my door and its just an overall mixture of colors.

This is my ice cream that I was eating out of the container. I know its not important but I'm just saying it is my favorite, Starbucks Java Chip. I just don't recommend eating it when you are already freezing cold on your couch, doesnt make you any warmer.

As a lot of people know I have sort of a nail polish addiction. I always have some sort of design on my nails. Many people (mainly girls) don't feel complete without make-up on, stylish clothes, their hair looking nice, etc. For me its my nails. That's why my picture is of my nail polish bin. It qualifies as being underneath literally because it is underneath my bathroom sink (in that cabinet) and also figuratively as in underneath my "blank-nail-phobia". Also just to give you perspective the bin is a 1.5x1.0(ft.) and is just a whole jumble of colors including 14 different shades of pink,12 shades of blues, and 5 different clear coats not including detail brushes. Basically the picture represents whats underneath/behind it all.

weekly food supply

The image dint load with my blogpost.

My Family's Food Supply

On average my family spends between $100-$200 a week on groceries. Most of the time it is leaning towards the $100 side though. There aer five people living in my family. Its my mom, dad, my two brothers and me.  There are certain foods or "staples" that we have at our house at all times. Since my dad owns an italian restaurant we always have pasta sauce in our fridge or in our freezer. We also always have apples, grapes, and usualy like pinapple or some other fruit. We also have iced tea in a giant pitcher in our fridge.We always have oreaos no matter what there is bound to be a pack somewhere in our pantry. Below is a picture of our pantry. We dont eat all this in a week but we eat some of it. The fruit isnt in this picture either.
