365 Challenge: Day 201 – Celebration

Celebration: (a) hotel where we are staying in Orlando and (b) a big party


I still can’t believe I’m on day 12 of a 15 day vacation and finding things to post about! Today the 365 Daily Challenge word is celebration — for two reasons. Our friends are getting married this evening at the Bohemian Hotel Celebration (Autograph Collection) in Celebration (Orlando) Florida. It’s a celebration on so many levels. I was surprised to learn that this town (Celebration) was built by Disney about thirty years ago and is actually an entire town full of life and fun — yes, an entire town. I knew Disney was huge down here, but this is even more intense. I’m excited to check it out this morning and afternoon before the wedding this evening. Later today, I will wear a bowtie and suspenders (wedding attire selected for us — never wore either before — this will be amusing), and we will run around town taking hilarious and memorable photos in a bunch of very cool spots. I probably won’t have those pictures for a few days/weeks, but we’ll take some before we go to the wedding (small, less than 30 of us) so you can see how silly I will probably look! And then tomorrow begins two days in the Disney parks. Can’t wait to get this Celebration started.

Thanks for all the comments and feedback. Looking forward to catching up with everyone when I return early next week. Have a great weekend.


About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.


  1. I love those pictures and I am loving the image of you in that outfit running around Orlando taking photos! Can’t wait to see those! While you’re doing that I’m going clubbing for the first time in a decade so who knows what kind of trouble I’ve let myself in for! 😂

  3. Sounds like a wonderful time. You sure have packed this vacation to the max with activities and fun things. Congrats on managing the posts as well. All I have to do is take a picture a day and sometimes I get behind with that!

  4. Ohhh can’t wait to see you in your suspenders. lol 😉 I have a friend down there this weekend named Chris, he owns a Salon in NC, wonder if he will be at your friends wedding.
