Art in St. Pete

This past Saturday my mom invited me to go to St. Pete with her. Her friend was having an art show and my mom wanted to support her. We didn’t end up leaving until 2pm and it’s about a 2 bout drive for us so we decided to just spend the night down there. We only spent about an hour at the art show because it was hot and the gallery didn’t have A/C. The gallery was in the art district of downtown St. Pete so when we left we drove around looking at all the murals.

This Tesla mural was by far my favorite. One of the other artists at the show actually painted it. I forgot her name.

Here are some more murals we found around town. The octupi are my other favorites because they are my favorite animal.:

After we drove looking at murals, we decided to get something to eat . My mom’s friend suggested The Pizza Box because they had gluten free pizza.

It still had cheese on it so I still go a little sick afterwards, but totally worth it.

While we were waiting for a spot to open up at The Pizza Box, we HD walked around town A little. We came across this wall that said “Before I Die…”

There was a basket of chalk so we added what we wanted to do before we died. I put travel the world.

My mom put live in a van down by the river.

After dinner we stopped by Publix to get some treats. The Publix had was two stories. The first floor was parking and you had to ride an elevator to get to the store on the second floor. I thought it was pretty cool. Once we got to the motel, we just chilled. I watched Doctor Who while she watched whatever she watched. It was nice to have internet since we still don’t have it at home. 

The next day, check out wasn’t until noon so we slept in. That was nice since o usually can’t sleep in any bed that isn’t mine. The blanket was itchy and the A/C kept making weird noises. When we left we stopped At the beach. St. Pete is on the Gulf coast which I enjoy a lot more. 

We only spent about two hours there, then we headed home. Here are some more pictures from around town including a Thunderbird hotel for my fellow Potterheads:

Here some pictures on the drive home including an Air stream monument And Dino World:

Here is a giant Pokeball at a Target on the way there:

Hair supply store in the ghetto part of town:

And some cloud pictures. Can’t forget those:


We had a fun time and it was a nice little weekend trip. We definitely can’t wait to go back!

A Year and a Day

I’ve been studying Paganism for about a year now. I’ve only been loosely studying it though; Mostly just setting up an altar and celebrating the Sabbats. I’ve decided I wanted to get more focused on my studies. I also wanted to study more paths, I identify as Eclectic Pagan right now. I’ll probably still stay a Solitary Eclectic, but I find to see what else is out there first. That’s why I’ve decided to do a “Year and a Day” study. Usually you would only do a year and a day study before you get initiated into a coven, but I wanted to do one for myself to kind of stay on track and stick to a plan.

I was going to make a plan by the week, but as I was writing one up, I realized that some subjects will take longer than a week to cover and others not so much. I decided to just make a list of all the subjects I wanted to study and take as long as I need to and try to fit it into the year and a day. I know I can’t learn everything in that time, but I want to make learning a higher priority.

I picked today because it is the true Samhain or so I’ve read online. Some people say it is, so say it’s not. I’ll figure it out later, but I still just wanted to start today because I’m so anxious to start. I even went to the library and got some books. As I go along I want to get started on my Book of Shadows. I already have a little one going, but it’s too small for my liking. I want to be able to add pictures to my pages, but their to too small for that and it usually takes like 5 of the for one thing. For my current one I have also been just writing the first thing I find. I want to do more research on each subject for before I add to my B.O.S. I will keep a digital copy and not add it until I feel like I have a sufficient amount of info.

Well below is a list of the subjects I want to cover. I will also be putting together a reading list of the books I want to read.
