365 Challenge: Day 202 – Wedding

Wedding: purpose of this trip, to attend the marriage of two good friends


It was the big day yesterday — the purpose of our trip — to attend the wedding of two good friends in Orlando. All the wedding photos from the official photographer won’t be available for a few days/weeks, but we took a few before shots so you can see what I look like in a bowtie and suspenders. What a fun day! It was a quiet morning spent poolside by the lake, and then we had lunch in the hotel. Afterwards, we got dressed and met the wedding group for pictures. W took a couple of photos of me, but I don’t photograph well, so I am only picking two or three of them to share.


Above is a picture in the room before I finished cleaning up. Decided to leave a few day’s stubble instead of go completely clean-shaven. Thought it might make for a more fun look! Then I had to figure out what to do with my hair, as it’s in-between lengths right now. I am trying to grow it out, but it’s getting unmanageable. It covers my eyes, so I wanted to keep it wet and slicked back, but in the humidity down here, it wouldn’t work!


I left it alone to dry and that’s how it ended up! After the ceremony, I stopped back up in the room to drop off a few things before we left for more pictures with the photographer. We all had name cards for where to sit. And yes, cut out in the shape of dachshunds because the wedding couple have always had them for the last ten years. Too cute. W took this picture before we left, and it’s one of the rare pictures of me that I actually like. I smiled, which is unusual for me. My hair stayed out of my eyes. And the outfit worked. The wedding was so much fun… but we head to the Disney parks with the main group for the weekend, so more pictures to come early next week. Tomorrow is a normal list day!


I’m thinking this might be my new profile pic since it tells my name!


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.

  2. When I was like 12, I used to plan my own weddings. I also thought I was going to be a wedding planner. Thank you for giving me those laughs! And to think that my sister was getting on me the other day about my hair and the humidity. I hope you have a great time! 😀

  3. Love the photo handsome! I think Ryder might get annoyed if you have a name tag in the shape of a dog though that’s not his breed. Well, maybe not? I do think it’s a great profile pic though! Glad you’re having fun at the wedding!

  4. Such adorable photos. I’m having that same problem with my hair right now. My hairdresser didn’t cut it short enough last time I went now I keep getting poked in the eye! Can’t believe a year ago it was halfway down my back! 😂 Hope you’ve had fun in Disney, can’t wait to hear what you all got up to! 🤗
