I copied this from Naomi! I don't do these very often, but thought this one would be fun!

The first five (5) people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations so please read carefully:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. What you get is what you get.

2. What I create will be just for you, with love, or at least with gusto.

3. It'll be done this year (2009).

4. I will not give you any clue what it's going to be. It will be
something made in the real world and not something cyber. It may be
weird or beautiful. It might or might not be edible. I may even create
something totally unbelievable and surprise you at work!! Who knows?

5. I reserve the right to do something strange or quirky, but I promise
not to embarrass you in public. I also reserve the right to do
something fairly predictable and boring, but with, you know, thought
and love.

6. In return, all you need to do is post this text
into a note of your own and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to
your note.

IMPORTANT: This offer is null and void if I do not see you post your own note to pay this forward.

Also if i make you things you will need to email me your address so you actually get it. 


School & Job

I will be taking a summer course at SMCC starting next Tuesday. Every Tuesday and Thursday. It's World History Since 1500 and it goes through the week of July 4. So about six weeks of boring history that I probably won't retain. All I need is a C or higher to transfer the grade back to MECA and be on the right path to graduating as a senior. Let's hope it all works out.

I have a job interview tomorrow at Bath & Body Works. I hope I do well and get the job, because finding a job right now is tough. Not very many places are hiring, and considering I have to take the bus to most places and I have to take a summer class, they are less likely to take me on. A summer job would be great. Justin and I are semi-struggling to put money away towards rent. Before then, we were paying rent with my loan money. It will run out after this month so it's good if I also have a steady income. I am nervous but it's a good lesson to us both. Be smart with your money guys, save it, don't spend it on junk.

Speaking of junk, it seems I ramble about this quite frequently but:  I'll be having another internet yard sale pretty soon here. I need to first set up a checking/debit account at the bank, then set up a paypal account. Once that's all set, I can photograph everything we're selling and post it online. Justin and I both have plenty of clothing to get rid of. He has a lot of old band t-shirts, and I have a lot of old gothy outfits as well as band t-shirts, and other miscellaneous things, so keep your eyes out. I'll do a post letting you know when I'll be doing this so you won't miss out. Along with clothing there will be other miscellaneous things that we just don't use anymore or have no room for.

It's been a struggle with the weight loss, but I have managed to get down to 155 lbs. Some mornings I'm 152, but I don't count that because I can't maintain it. One of the first things I plan on doing when I land a job is getting a gym membership and going an hour a night, maybe more depending on schedules. I will add that coffee has definitely helped me lose weight, but the winter is where I blame gaining some of it back. In Maine, winters are so cold and snowy that I just can't fathom going out as much, except out to dance or to get to class. Luckily I live right across the street from both places! But I have noticed that exercise is really important. Justin and I have been walking everywhere ever since the snow melted. It is so nice. We're getting our exercise and we're exploring where we live.

I guess that's all for now, I'll be back again with more, and perhaps some photos.



I should be back to posting and keeping updated soon, just clearing out the rest of the junk in my apartment and trying to get a summer job! Miss you all, and hope you're well!


I got twitter!
Here's the link if you'd like to add:

I no longer have twitter!
I deleted my account, it was not for me.

I have realized I am not nearly as much
of a social butterfly as others,
I could care less about what
everyone's doing, every thirty seconds.

Twitter is the exact opposite of what I was trying to accomplish.
I'm trying to get away from the computer, not sit at it all day.

Oh well!


(no subject)

Long time, no post!
Just thought I'd do a photo update!
Saw the Cruxshadows the other night.
I've been curling my fringe. It makes it look ten times better.
Anyway, I'll be back another time, gotta go to class.

I want to believe

Greetings, Citizens!!

I've been on hiatus and I apologize. I've been watching a LOT of Avatar, seeing movies at the theatre [X-FILES ON THURSDAY!!], and otherwise spending some serious cash. I should probably stop for a while. Meh. But alas, I have tuesday and wednesday off!

With my free time I plan to totally revamp my childhood drawing desk! I need to remove candle wax that was spilled on top of it, remove the old paint, sand it, prime it, give it a beautiful new paint job, clean out the drawers and give those a nice coat of fresh paint, and find some new hardware to replace the old wooden knobs. Now to decide what colors to use! I have a few in mind but I'm sure I'll pick the best choice when looking at paint swatches at the store. I plan to take before and after photos, and maybe some of the progress along the way, for fun. I love revamping furniture!

I'm waiting to hear back from a website to see if I can get a custom order made for some furry leg warmers that I dreamed up. I hope they can do it, but if not I'll take matters into my own hands and hope for a good outcome.

Recently, I wrote down a four page list of what I want to change about myself for the better. Tomorrow will be a great starting point! There are several ideals on this list that will take longer than others, but all of them can be accomplished in good time.

As soon as I get my desk project finished, I'm going to tackle some new ideas I have in the works. Altering clothing. Finishing some necklaces and a stencil for some important people that I keep putting off. Getting started on a scrapbook that I've been wanting to make for years. Things like that. I have realized that if you don't make do with the time you have, time will take over you. I don't want to waste my summer waiting to move back to Portland. Instead I'd rather make the best of it by getting projects and other things out of the way so that I don't feel guilty later.

Wow, it's almost 4AM. I have become that night owl I was last semester! Not that it's a bad thing. I should probably get some rest though if I want to get all of these super great things done today and tomorrow.

Ps. My last day of working in the deli is thursday, and then I won't ever have to slice corned beef ever again. Blech! I'm excited to be leaving that place and move on to better things, greater adventures. And anway, I'm still a faithful employee to my Hot Topic crew. Always.

X-FILES!! I can't wait!!
