May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The Space, a makerspace located in Beltway Plaza Mall in Greenbelt, Maryland, did an art event in conjunction with the Prince George’s County (Maryland) chapter of NAMI that was designed to raise awareness about mental health. It was held on the day before Mother’s Day so some people were creating art to give to their mothers. Here are the photos I took.

There were several tables set up in the middle of the mall so people could stop by and make something.

The art supplies were all free so there were plenty of people of all ages who were making something.

There was a table where people painted pictures using acrylic paint.

There was a table where people could design their own t-shirts using fabric paint. The t-shirt making table was popular and the shirts were soon all given away and decorated.

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

The local NAMI chapter had literature and other free items that people could take so they could learn more about mental health.

There was a table where people could make their own self-care kits. I decided to make one myself. I took a plastic box and stuck two stickers on the lid.

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

I filled my self-care kit with all kinds of goodies.

I put in two inspirational quotes. One was by Marcus Aurelius and it said “Everything is in a state of metamorphosis.” The other was by W.S. Gilbert and it said “Things are seldom what they seem.”

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

I put in a wrapped tea bag.

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

I added in some very fragrant dried sage.

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

I even decorated the sides of the box with washi tape.

I also created this small collage piece using the supplies that were available.

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

I was pretty happy with what I made at that event. 🙂

Here are some more photos I took at the event where people were creating all kinds of amazing art.

Since May 11 was the day before Mother’s Day, there were people making creative pieces to give to their moms. The Spanish writing on the t-shirt in the next photo translates as “Happy Mother’s Day, Granny Machi.”

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

This t-shirt had a slogan that was definitely appropriate for the theme of this event: “I Am Not Defeated.”

Mental Health Awareness, May 11, 2019

There was a story about this event that appeared in The Greenbelt News Review on the following week. The story is located towards the bottom of the first page of this link. There was a photo accompanying this story. I can be seen in the photo wearing a brown t-shirt that had a multicolored image of Mickey Mouse on it and holding that small self-care kit I made at the event. (I purchased that one during my last trip to Walt Disney World back in 2011.)

The annual Sakura Matsuri street festival in Washington, DC is one of the last major events that is held as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The festival is usually held in the Federal Triangle area (such as the one in 2015). Except when I last attended two years ago, the festival was moved to the Navy Yard.

This year the festival has been moved back to its original location in Federal Triangle. On my way to the festival I saw tourists taking selfies outside of the Trump International Hotel, which had me rolling my eyes. (LOL!)

Selfies at the Trump International Hotel

I arrived at the festival and it was as I remembered from the last time I went in 2017. There were cosplayers dressed in various costumes, a variety of Japanese imported goods available for sale, a variety of performances and demonstrations. The admission fee is now $10 per person. (I remember when this festival used to be free years ago. Then they decided to turn it into a paid event and charge $5 per person. Now the prices are higher.) Here are some photos and videos I shot at this event.

I even shot this short video of the group singing “My Country Tis of Thee.” The lead singer had a very nice voice.

I made my way over to the Wishing Tree where one can write his/her own wish on a piece of paper then hang it on the tree.

Sakura Matsuri Street Festival

I ended up writing my own wish. I had to do with my latest job being unsteady. (I work for a government contractor that is currently having a hard time with getting new work because many of the government contracting officers have been spooked by President Donald Trump’s recent month-long shutdown. Apparently many of them are afraid of another shutdown happening again so they are holding on to their funds more than they used to.) I wrote this on my piece of paper: “I wish for financial stability with a well-paying job. I wish my new book sells lots of copies. I’m not asking to be rich.”

I would’ve written more about how I only wish to be financially stable and I’m not asking to be rich but I ran out of space on the paper.

The last video I shot was of the Japanese alternative rock band LUST. The group’s music reminded me of what I used to hear from the Seattle grunge rock scene of the 1990s.

The last photo I shot at the festival featured a group of people doing the traditional Japanese bow, which was appropriate since in Japan people bow to each other when they are arriving and leaving.

I was at a local Five Below store not too long ago. I saw plenty of stuff featuring bunnies for Easter but I also found something else that I wouldn’t expect: A plethora of dinosaur stuff. That’s right, I saw a bunch of dinosaurs arrive just in time for Easter next month.

I found a bubble making triceratop along with a unicorn (which is the only non-dinosaur product I shot on this trip).

I saw an ad on Facebook announcing a new multi-day conference in downtown DC called We DC Fest. Since the admission was free, I decided to check out the first day, even though I’m still financially struggling and the fares to ride the Metro subway keep on rising higher. The event was supposed to offer networking opportunities and I felt that it wouldn’t hurt for me to expand my circle of friends and acquaintances.

The bulk of the first day’s activities took place in the National Building Museum. Since it’s located near Chinatown, I decided to stop off at the It’s Sugar store located in Chinatown on the way and pick up this pack of Canadian chocolate candy known as Sixlets. I ate it while I was at We DC Fest and I found the candy to be quite tasty.

We DC Fest, September 26, 2018

The first day of We DC Fest took place inside of the National Building Museum. Even though it was late September, the weather was very hot and humid and I remember the highs reaching the 90s. I was so glad when I arrived at that museum because at least it had air conditioning.

We DC Fest, September 26, 2018

The next photo showed the stage where all of the day’s panels took place.

We DC Fest, September 26, 2018

I was pretty tired from walking in the very hot weather outside so I just sat in the stage area and ate my lunch that I brought with me from home. While I was eating I saw a panel titled “Diversity: less talking, more doing,” which was about how the tech industry in DC needs to include more women and minorities. One of the speakers was a man named Marcus Bullock who founded his own company, Flikshop, which prints people’s social media posts and photos on postcards which can then be sent to friends and family members who are currently in prison. He got the inspiration for starting his company after his own experience with serving eight years in prison for stealing a car. While he was fortunate enough to have his family visit him in prison on a regular basis so he was able to keep up with what’s happening on the outside, not all prisoners were so lucky. What’s more, inmates can’t access social media in jail so they can’t keep up on what their friends and loved ones are doing. His story and company was so fascinating that I got his business card after the panel so I could show it to a couple of people.

The big highlight of We DC Fest was this show featuring arts, crafts, and technology by individuals and companies in the DC area.

It wasn’t a bad festival but there weren’t a lot of people who attended so I wasn’t able to do much networking. I wasn’t able to buy any arts and crafts from any of the booths because I’m too broke to do any such impulse purchases at the moment. I ended up skipping the second and third days of the festival because I wasn’t into spending a lot of money on Metro fares only to have nothing panning out for me in terms of networking or meeting new people. It was just as well that I skipped the last two days. This article mentioned that attendance was even lower on the last two days of We DC Fest.

I had learned about We DC Fest through Facebook about a week or two before it began. That same link mentioned that the We DC Fest organizers hope that it’ll turn into another South by Southwest Festival. As someone who attended SXSW back in 1998, I can easily say that We DC Fest has a long ways to go before it could even begin to be compared to SXSW. While We DC Fest focused on technology and local arts and crafts, it was definitely lacking in other areas. SXSW has a film component where aspiring filmmakers show their films in the hopes of landing a movie distribution from one of the studios (who usually send a few executives to Austin each year). We DC Fest does not. SXSW has a music component where aspiring bands perform in the hopes of landing a recording contract. We DC Fest does not.

While I think We DC Fest has potential, it has a long ways to go before it can even begin to touch SXSW in terms of influence.

Day one of We DC Fest had ended at 3 p.m. (which is another reason why it has a long way to go before it can even touch SXSW because SXSW has events that start in the morning and they are scheduled throughout the day and into the wee hours of the following morning). As I stepped outside in the heat and humidity, I decided to make a brief stop at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial where I shot these photos.

(The letter “M” stands for “Metro.”) The large red building located further back is the National Building Museum where We DC Fest was held.

Like I wrote in a previous blog post, I attended two festivals in one day. The first one was the smaller Greenbelt Blues Festival, which I already wrote about. After attending that festival, I went to the Hyattsville Arts & Ales Festival, which was a larger event. Here are the photos I took of the event while I was there.

This sign erroneously said that this festival was held on September 10. In reality, it showed up on September 22.

Hyattsville Arts & Ales Festival, Hyattsville, Maryland, September 22, 2018.

The festival was well-attended and there were all kinds of arts and crafts on display along with local bands performing. The local craft breweries were selling their craft beers and ales. The weather was warm and pleasant (the humidity was low that day). All in all I had a good time and many of the festival goers also enjoyed themselves as well.

One Saturday I went to two different festivals on the same day. First, I went to the Greenbelt Blues Festival in Greenbelt, Maryland where I took these photos. Here is the schedule of events that happened during the festival.

Greenbelt Blues Festival in Greenbelt, Maryland, September 22, 2018.

There were plenty of souvenir t-shirts on sale.

There was a raffle where a lucky person could win this electric guitar. I already have this exact same black and white Fender Stratocaster Squier so I didn’t bother with this raffle.

I sat in on the workshop I was interested in, which was how to play the blues guitar. I brought my acoustic guitar with me to the workshop since it was geared towards acoustic guitars.

The Greenbelt Makerspace had a bunch of musical instruments that people could borrow and play.

After spending time at that festival, I went on to another festival in another town, which I’ll write about in a future post.

I arrived at church with a friend (we were carpooling together) when we saw that it was once again Tye-Dye Sunday. This is an event that’s usually held once a year during the summer. It runs in place of regular Sunday school for the kids while adults have a chance to dye their own shirts once Sunday service ends. Here are a few photos I took at that event.

I had somehow missed the memo about Tye-Dye Sunday so I didn’t bring any blank t-shirts from home. There were a few blank t-shirts lying around but the bulk were too small for me. But then I discovered this one t-shirt that was very stretchy so it could fit me. What’s more, it’s a Michael Kors designer t-shirt. I don’t know who donated that t-shirt. It was a basic blank white shirt that would have been indistinguishable from other white shirts if I hadn’t seen that label.

I took that shirt for myself, tied rubber bands around it, then put it in this vat of purple dye.

I put the shirt in a zip-lock bag then took it home with me. The following day I washed it and it looked okay. While my t-shirt was drying I decided to take a trip to the local mall and I was walking around Jo-Ann’s Fabrics & Crafts. I saw this unicorn iron-on appliquĂ© with a color scheme that would definitely match my newly-dyed Michael Kors t-shirt. I also have the Jo-Ann’s app on my smartphone so I was able to use a coupon and pay just $2.50 for that appliquĂ©. Sweet!

So I ironed that appliqué patch on the t-shirt once it fully dried. Here is the front of the shirt.

The next photo show the back of the t-shirt.

And, last but not least, here’s a selfie of me modeling that t-shirt.

The release of the movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has unleashed a plethora of dinosaur-related stuff in the stores. Some of them are movie tie-ins while others are just generic dinosaurs that are released to take advantage of the film. For the past few years I’ve posted the occasional dinosaur photo on social media while tagging a friend of mine who’s a total dinosaur freak. Generally I’ve sent those photos once in a while. However, thanks to that movie, I found myself constantly taking new photos, uploading them, and tagging my friend more frequently. Here are photos of just a few of the dinosaur stuff I’ve seen in the stores this summer.

I’m old enough to remember a time when if you wanted to purchase anything that was LGBTQ-related in the Washington, DC area, you had to go to the stores located in the heavily LGBTQ areas like Dupont Circle. You could easily forget about going to any store in the suburbs because such things just simply were not put on sale. This definitely includes Pride Month.

My how times have changed! Not only have corporations embraced Pride Month by putting out rainbow stuff but one can easily find rainbow-themed stuff on sale in the stores in the suburbs. What’s even more amazing is that this open observance of Pride Month has continued despite the fact that the Trump Administration is less-than-warm towards LGBTQ people. I kept on seeing rainbow stuff on sale in the suburbs, which is very convenient for those who want to buy rainbow items without having to take the Metro into downtown Washington, DC. I took a few photos but it wasn’t until the last day of Pride Month that I finally got around to uploading them. (I know I can be lame at times. LOL!) So, without further ado, here are some colorful stuff I saw in the suburban stores.

I saw slices of rainbow cake on sale at a local Giant supermarket earlier this month.
