When will our country ever get things right? Is it even possible?
At least the assholes (excuse my french) were found guilty in the death of Tyre Nichols, but isn't it strange that this time, when the police were found guilty, they're all black police officers?
Like "Oh well when Black police officers kill a black man then we definitely should consider it a crime, but when a white police officer kills a black man, nah no problem.
It breaks my heart.
Been traveling lately
I love hitting the road and getting to my favorite state of California! I discovered these yummy granola bars while I was in Big Sur, and now I try to find them wherever I go.
Driving along Highway 1 has been impossible thanks to mud slides from the rain, but I still love getting out the the coast from San Simeon down through San Luis Obispo, all the way to Anaheim.
So much driving means I have to eat on the run, and this is how I try to stay healthy.
I know I'm a little late to the game here with this post but life just got busy. Busy Busy!
But OMG wasn't it the best news when FINALLY the guilty San Luis Obispo man was found guilty? Incredible.
Someday LinkedIn may be a great way to get a job. For now, I'm just setting up a placeholder LinkedIn account so I can add to it once my professional career gets underway.

I'm on Pinterest
Hi Peeps - just a shout out to let you know I'm now on Pinterest! Woohoo! You can find me at Lyza Johnsen - Pinterest Profile
I don't know much about Pinterest yet but I'm figuring it out. Wow, there's much to learn on this website building stuff!
This photo is one of the Pins I saved because it's too incredible I wish I had street art like this where I live. I remember there being pretty fun street art in San Luis Obispo California when I visited there but only in a few random places. Mostly cleaned up.
In New York City there was incredible street art. Also in Kansas City. Someday maybe I'll figure out the meaning behind some of the tags, but for now I appreciate the art that's clever like this, or beautiful, making the cities and neighborhoods richer.
Cease Fire, that's a good start
That Israel and Palestine have announced a cease fire is great news. Let's hope it will last. I'm so exhausted by war everywhere. Aren't you? Almost 99% of the world must prefer peace over war, but there still seem to be so much war. Guns, fighting, weapons, death, anger, animosity, fear, aggression, territorialism- sick of it all.
I'm On Reddit
I'm pretty excited to be on Reddit now. I've never joined before and I can say 100% i find it intimidating because there seem to be so many smart people on it but I'll give it a try. Maybe I'll get some good feedback on images I've taken, once I really get started with taking good solid photos.
To be honest I know the photos I"m putting up right now are just average, nothing special, becuase I'm focusing on learning website building more than uploading the highest quality photos. That'll come later.
For now, getting all the SEO stuff figured out and having fun!

Ramblings about clouds
Clouds are incredible, really... puffy visitors floating through our sky, delivering rain and shade and defying gravity being up there in the first place.
Talking to a friend
I was just talking with a friend today about how nice it is to not have to hear our former president's name every other hour anymore. Man that was fing annoying. So dumb and boring and irritating. He was a bully and a jerk and he inspired violence and crime and more hatred. What a relief to have that pig out of the news. Just a thought.
How likely is it that the jury trial for Derek Chauvin verdict will get overturned? I extremely much hope it doesn't. Because that man is guilty and deserves every second in jail and then more.
