One way to slow down the aging process or to age in a graceful manner, is to stop thinking about getting older, or that I’m too old to do this or that. Because I realize that looking back on my past, I was never too old to do anything I wanted to.
Another interesting thing.. I looked at some webcam photos I took of myself when I was 22. I may have looked a little younger, but my expression showed insecurity, a sense of being lost.. I just looked angry and sad.
No matter what your age is, you can look younger with a smile and a look of over all joy. I see that in my more recent pictures.
This year is the garden year for me! I have many plants in the ground and growing right now!
Golden Cherry Tomatoes
Cherokee Red Tomatoes
Two kinds of Cabbage
Lettuce (really cool and interesting looking)
Romanian burpless cucumbers
That’s about the gist of it! Really fun!
I got my money issues resolved, and then my bank sends me a surprise. Fortunately, I have a little bit of time, but my bank is taking a bit of an unnerving direction in general. Instead of basic free checking, their default checking account requires a minimum of $1500 or $500 direct deposit each month.
Personally, I find that to be and easy way for them to cull anyone that doesn’t meet their money making requirements. And by the way, this is Chase Bank for the Pacific Northwest area. I can imagine all of the people freaking out about this concept right now.
It goes without saying that I’m leaving. This is more for principle than anything else. Why would I want to be a part of that? So I’m doing what I should have done for a while now, which is, locating a local credit union, so that my money is local and supports a local banking system.
After this gets completed, the goal will be done.
