Interview + vanity sizing
Got back from my job interview not too long ago. It went really well. The two people I was interviewed by were really easy going, we had a few laughs, and they seemed to like me. It's a pretty small company too (I think I saw seven people there)... Read more
Amusing self stereotyping
I do this to myself unintentionally all the time. Today just really entertained me.
I had some leftover rice from dinner last night, and needed to add to it to make a full meal for my lunch. I just started picking things I had and adding th... Read more
Bounce bounce bounce
I've been job hunting for months now, and I was getting pretty frustrated with the whole ordeal. I didn't get so much as a single response to any of the many applications and resumes I sent out.
This morning, I got up and made Alex's lunch ... Read more
So far.. not dead?
Sheesh. If anyone finds me dead on the floor, they can blame Tony and his plyometrics! haha.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect out of myself in this workout, but I'm actually quite proud. I didn't have to modify it too much, and only had to s... Read more
Starting P90X and a non-scale victory
Pretty excited about this, half nervous as well. I was watching the video previews while the DVDs were burning and let's just say I gave a couple things a very, very strange look. Still going to go full force at it, and will just modify it where... Read more
Goals and goodies
So after thinking about it, I think I need to write down my ideas where someone other than myself can see them.
What am I going to do when I get to each of my mini goals?
10lb loss - redye my hair OR new shirt
20lb loss - new rings
30... Read more
I actually feel good about how March went. I was incredibly surprised when I ended up doing my measurements, and that made me happier than anything the scale could have told me.
Though I suppose it's more like March +1 week, as the last se... Read more
Through the veins of sanity
I have no idea what's wrong with me today.
It was my friend's birthday party last night, and I had quite a good time there. Even saw one of my friends that I hadn't in a while, since she moved to Ottawa. There was no drama, which is getting... Read more
I know Alex eats a lot. He knows he eats a lot. Where he puts it, I have no idea. But tonight made for -vast- entertainment while cooking up some steaks. It amused me so much, I had to share it with everyone else.

A useful flyer
Ok, to get the idea of how rare this is, let me give you an idea.
At my house, we generally get one or two bundles of flyers -per day-. These bundles are normally about an inch and a half thick and completely useless.
Today, however, as I... Read more
Squee! I'm excited.
Tee. Hee. Hee.
I went on a campus tour today of the university I plan to apply for next year, and it looks fantastic. The grounds are really pretty, the rooms are well equipped and clean, didn't get too many strange glares from the students... Read more
Genuine smiles, they feel pretty good
I feel like I've finally found my balance. I spent a couple months frustrated that despite all my careful tracking and hard work, all I succeeded in doing was fluctuate between 190 - 195 over and over again. I felt the other changes, and did tak... Read more
Breakfast so big..
..it could eat me back.
Not even the size of the breakfast itself, just one particular item. I picked it based on the size alone because it vastly entertained me. I even saved it until last because it was so much bigger than the other three... Read more
I don't even know what to feel right now. Yesterday was my anniversary with Alex. Truth be told, the people I tend to date are generally not "long term" material, to say it nicely. Between being treated like crap, ignored, used, and being cheate... Read more
Sometimes, life drops little hints that you should be doing something. Other times it shoves you onto a trail and slaps you over the head. Tonight was one of the latter.
I am currently unemployed, my previous job was in the graphic arts fie... Read more
