Been Busy (& Sick)
I've been pretty busy for the past week and a half. I did end up finishing off that birthday cake, but at least I've left the ice cream alone since the cake's been gone ^_^;;
Of course, I have gotten pretty off track with my weightloss anyw... Read more
Me vs. the Birthday Cake
Unfortunately, it seems the birthday cake is winning...
To explain: My 25th birthday was on Tuesday, so that night I went out to eat my parents--Outback Steakhouse, which was wonderful, but I would have enjoyed it more if I had not accident... Read more
Denouncing the Internet
Fellow Sparkers, I have had a sudden revolation and have decided to denounce the internet. I have just decided that I am morally opposed to its presence in society, and that it serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever. No good comes from it. I kn... Read more
Photo of New Outfit (Before & After Photos)
I took a picture of my new outfit (or one of my friends did, rather), so here it is:
I had said it was "60's inspired" - it isn't a hippie dress or anything, but the ... Read more
My New Problem With Clothes Shopping
...is that almost everything I try on looks great! I'm starting to fit into size 8's, and I've never had so many options before--normally, if I tried something on and it looked good at all, I would buy it, because I could never find much that di... Read more
Surprisingly Good Dessert
After watching Good Eats tonight, I decided to try one of the recipes with a couple little alterations. The recipe was bacon topped with brown sugar and crushed walnuts, baked in the oven. Sounds kind of weird, right? But hey, I trust Alton Brow... Read more
It's Unbelievable! Citibank is the Best!
After a call to Citibank, I now have my old interest rate back! After it was pointed out that what they had done was no longer legal, and that no, I did not get a notice mailed to me in December with my statement because I get PAPERLESS stateme... Read more
APR Went from 15% to 25% for NO REASON.
Arrgh...you know, the last time I began a blog this way, it was when they cut my hours at work. Apparantly, financial troubles turn me into some sort of pirate.
Damnit. They raised the interest on my credit card from 15% to %25 for no reaso... Read more
New PC/Still Trying to Get Back On Track
Well, the new computer is all put together now. I ended up spending a lot more on it than I intended to, because every time I was choosing a component, inevitably I'd end up going with the slightly more expensive part that was always way better ... Read more
Color Contacts, Computer Components, & Fear of Scales...
I should be getting all the components for my new computer in tomorrow. I can't wait ^_^

Not the Most Interesting Blog Ever...
I had my follow up optometrist appointment this morning, and I got my prescription. I also got a demo violet contact. I tried it on a little while ago, and I can't say I was very impressed. There was a slight difference in color, but it just was... Read more

Contact Lense Success!
I had my optometrist appointment today, and now I have contacts! I think it must have taken me almost two hours to get them in...they didn't ask me to take them out this time and just sent me home with them in. Which is a good thing, because it ... Read more
Only Slightly Hysteric
Tomorrow is my optometrist appointment, from which I will hopefully be walking away with my first pair of contact lenses (unless I just decide on the GPs, which have to be custom made). I'm going to try to go in as relaxed as possible this time,... Read more
After writing my last blog, I started doing more research on contacts, and I started getting excited. I decided that contacts are what I want for my birthday this year (which isn't really until April, but whatever). So this morning, I made an op... Read more
