@PinchoFactory: Taste Bud Heaven

_1111

Pincho Factory is my favorite place to eat when I visit Miami. And apparently I’m not alone. Every time I enter this heaven for taste buds it’s packed with eager customers either devouring their food or on line thinking of what tasty treat to get.

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words so before I describe it I have to show you it first:

Enough to make your mouth water instantly huh?

It’s fast food. But it’s a novelty. And the goodness you see on that picture is only a fraction of the whole menu.

My girlfriend and I ordered a burger topped with bacon and a unique  buffalo sauce. A chicken pincho that can’t be topped. And some classic cajun fries (those sauces are mango and cilantro).

Needless to say…we had a feast.

Make sure you check out the Pincho Factory next time you’re in the Miami area!

Through tough times remember…

Perseverance

When you’re going through a tough time it’s very easy to start pitying yourself. You ask yourself questions like “why me?” (as if you wished your hardships on the person standing next to you). I’ve caught myself doing this a number of times in the past couple years. But thinking this way doesn’t help. Thinking this way doesn’t get you anywhere. When you stub your toe you don’t fall and stay on the floor all day long. You curse. You shake it off. And go about your day. The issue of dealing with the hardships in your life is something like that awful metaphor with one major difference. Sure, you can shake off your problems. But you can also accept them as a lesson. Learn from them. Become stronger from them. Imagine if you never shed a tear. Never went through any type of hardship and got everything you wanted in the snap of a finger. Sounds great doesn’t it? I bet it does but now think back on all the times you worked really hard to achieve something and overcame all the obstacles to come to your desired outcome. That feeling of accomplishment is a high. Now think of all the lessons you learned after you shed those tears. Some of them were worth it weren’t they? They helped make you a skillful sailor.

FIU: An Artistic Campus

Every time I visit my girlfriend at FIU she always tells me to pay attention to all the art that is scattered around it’s campus. Needless to say I never really paid attention. Until my last visit.

There’s sculptural art everywhere! And the exhibits they had at the museum (FREE ADMISSION) were very interesting.

Below are some pictures of what I ran into on one walk from the dorm to the museum. Enjoy!

And now some pictures of the museum and it’s exhibits. There’s some MLK. Some Obama. Some random stuff hanging from the ceiling. Even palm trees.

Enjoy some more scrolling.

I probably take too many pictures.

First Post

Hello! My name is Daniel Steez and this is my first post on this personal blog. I run some other blogs like The Daily Steez where I try to chronicle my brand’s activities. And Gully Music which I use as a medium to let people know what new music I’m listening to and ask them what they think about it.

The direction I’m taking this blog in particular is nowhere. And everywhere.

I’ll be blogging about everything I can write about. The places I go to. The things I look at. The books I read. The things I think about. Anything. And everything.

I thought this blog was necessary because it gives me freedom to do what I like as a writer on a medium completely separated from my other blogs (although content from my other blogs will be slightly infused into this one).

This is a personal account of my life as I juggle being a student, business owner, and wannabe writer. And since I also think I’m a photographer I’m just going to jump into this with some pictures I took in Miami this past weekend. Enjoy.

This first one is of a crazy looking tree…I think anything is worth taking a picture of.

Every time I see a turtle it reminds me of Finding Nemo.
