Perhaps I'm a Charming Babbling Idiot?
Well, I didn't get the job with the physics department (all I got back from them was a very short email that said they had hired the person they felt was the best match for the department and good luck with my career at the university), but that... Read more
Still Looking for a Job
So, I got this back from the performing arts department:
"Thank you for your interest and interview for the Events Usher position in the Arts & Humanities office. Your resume and skillset are impressive. At this time, the position has been ... Read more
My Internet Finally Works!
I finally got my internet working this morning. I also got some measuring cups and spoons when I went out shopping yesterday, so I guess that means I have no excuse not to track my food anymore. Of course, I've still lost a pound and a half just... Read more
Internet Cross Connection Fees, UTD Shuttle Bus Tours...A Very Tiring Day Indeed.
So this time I'm sitting in the Student Union building using the internet, because I still don't have an internet connection in my apartment. It turns out I have to pay a $35 "cross connection" fee, I guess because of the "free" wireless interne... Read more
Officially Moved In
I have officially moved into my new apartment at UTD. Yay! I even cooked my first meal in my new kitchen last night, which was frozen veggie pizza and champagne, followed by strawberries and more champagne ^_^ I didn't actually track my calorie... Read more
Paint, Pack, Goof Off, Repeat...
Today I started painting the dinette table I picked up at Goodwill. I tried to get it done this morning, but it was windy and the primer wasn't sticking well. I ended up having to go get more paint at Walmart (I decided to forgo more primer and ... Read more
Moving in One Week
Busy, still kind of stressed because I'm moving in exactly one week (and I feel completely NOT ready). I only have two more days at my job after today. Haven't felt much like blogging, but since I'm at work and I really don't have anything to do... Read more
Why Does it Always Seem Like I'm Looking for a Swimsuit Out of Season?
Long title, but it pretty much sums it up. For some reason, every time I need a new swimsuit it's July or August and there's nothing left! Which makes no sense, in a way. This is Texas! Sometimes swimsuit season lasts until October here, but sti... Read more
I'm possibly on the verge of having a full on anxiety attack today. Yay! (Sorry, that's just me becoming slightly hysteric...)
It started while I was getting ready to go to work (I work in the afternoon, so it was about 12:30). I think it s... Read more
The Worst Case Scenario
I actually haven't lost any weight this week, but I'm not too concerned. Or, I'm trying not to be, anyway. It's just one week, after all. If I haven't lost any more weight by next week, then I'll really start worrying. Not that it isn't a little... Read more
I cut my own hair!
I just cut my own hair tonight, and I think I actually didn't do too bad!
It's really something I'd always thought about doing - after all, the hairstyles I tend to like are the modern looking ones that just about look like you could have c... Read more
I have about four weeks now until my move. I've started packing, and it's a little overwhelming, because I have WAY too much stuff...I'm not kidding. I'm really kind of worried that one day I'm going to end up being like those people on the tv s... Read more
When will I be happy?
I wonder, when will I be happy this time? Looking back over my past blogs, it looks like I really started feeling good about the way I was looking last year when I got down to about 150 lbs. That's when the photo of me in that dress I loved so m... Read more
I Can Haz Optimism???
I'm down to 157, which means I've lost about 6 pounds in only about 2 and a half weeks. I might just make it to my goal by my original deadline after all. I kind of wonder if my weight loss isn't too rapid, but I've been following my calorie int... Read more
I just feel like I want to scream...
I wonder if it's really a good idea to diet when you're on your period. Seriously, let's combine a time of the month when I'm already agitated, and then add the frustration of trying to keep track of everything I'm putting in my mouth while atte... Read more
