In 2012, I decided to use pennies to tile my bathroom floor.
It took a little over 5,000 pennies to cover the floor. The pennies were covered by a two-part epoxy-resin to seal them and provide a shiny finish.
All the pennies are face up and facing the same direction. In case you are wondering, the pennies are facing away from the toilet, so Abraham Lincoln is not watching using the bathroom. After all, privacy is important.

I came across a news article about two elderly German men that escaped from a nursing home in order to attend a heavy metal concert.
When the nursing home realized the gentlemen were missing, they called the police. The police located both men at the concert at 3:00 in the morning and drove them back to the facility in a police car.
My first reaction – I want to be like those guys when I am old.
I want to still have the desire to escape in the night, to attend concerts, to feel wild, to bend rules, to express my individuality, to cause trouble, and to make people shake their heads in wonder.

My mom gave me this book for Christmas. Each page of the journal has weird instructions or ideas for you to try. It is the strangest book I have ever owned, but I had a ton of fun working though it.
The book is also a great way to stretch your imagination and improve creativity. I recommend trying it. You will have a blast.
