I just wanted to welcome all the new members!!!
I'm not around here so much these days since I'm having some trouble with my eating, I'm gaining weight and it's really hard for me right now. But I promise it'll get better and I'll be back!!!

I see you're all really busy, just remember to take a little break every day and relax, do something you like. I had a pretty busy week myself last week and 10 minutes a day of relaxing and breathing really made a difference.

Oh, by the way, I've joined a gym! I't soooo cool, sparkling new and it's not only a gym, it's a wellness center, so there's a spa in it and with the gym membership I get access to all of it! Yay!

What do you guys think of the new sparkteam look!? I LOVE the links to each others blogs down below, but the leadercrawl makes me dizzy. :)

I just interviewed a group of very awesome translators from Montreal last week. Between the lot of them, they could translate Spanish, French, Chinese, Romanian, and several more that I can't remember! If all translators are like them, you must be a fun person, Xiet!!

And Cricket- that's pretty darn rad. I'm envious- I'm just breaking into the industry now. I've never had the opportunity to do a whole lot in the field where I'm from... I never knew where to start!

Wow, I see lots of activity around here!
I've just received the script of a documentary I need to translate for tomorrow. Which is a nightmare considering it's already 1hour into tomorrow and at 3pm I need to be at Heathrow airport for my flight back. Well, I guess the next 23 hours are going to be quite exciting, right?

HAUNTEDHOPE, that's great.

i can brag wt a couple (read 16 LOL) articles published in international magazines (specialized) and a lot (read 150+) articles published on line.

news-writing/editing can be a bit of a head-ache. the magazine is business related and i hope i'd like it :) LOL

Ooh good luck with the job!! I did a two week stint with a daily paper here in Canada, and I loved it. I think I am leaning more towards magazine writing or layout, however. It gives a lot more creative freedom than the cut and dry boundaries of newswriting. Besides, I can already brag a couple of front pagers! My life is complete. LOL

The tea line that we carry has two different chais. My favorite tea, however, is the jasmine green tea that we carry... that and anything fruity and black!! A good london fog is always yummy too.

Still there for the coffee more than anything though...

Three superwomen in one? You're way too sweet. I adore Superman, btw... *runs into a phonebooth and rips off her shirt... only to realize that she has no costume undernieth*

HI and welcome HAUNTEDHOPE! I love this team. Congrats on graduation plans--how cool! I began as a Journalism major...that's great that you found something you loved. And being able to write, take photos, and make it all look good makes you like 3 superwomen in one. :)

I'll bet working in a coffeeshop also gives you all kinds of access to cool teas...I LOVE Chai, and it's so flavourful you don't always need milk.

Anyway, welcome! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hey everyone! You all seem very nice (and interactive, unlike the other college team)! Lets see. I've been a member of SP for only about a week, but I think it's fantastic. I am graduating this spring from Journalism, and am fluent in all forms of journalistic writing, photography, and layout design. I'm passionate about all three, so hopefully it shall be easy enough to find employ!

I live in Calgary, Canada and work part time at a local coffee shop. I'm addicted to coffees and lattes, and I'm sure that it amounts a lot to the weight gain I've experienced over the past year!

So... hi!!

Me too! I just keep telling myself once I get through this week I get to go on spring break and then the weather will be wonderful and it will be spring and I have a month left before I'm done with schoooool!
I've had a horrible week last week and I'm not really sure if I want to get back on track. It doesn't really matter if I go to the gym all the time and eat well or not...my weight remains the same. GRRRRRRR
This is why I can't stand COLLEGE DINING HALL FOOD

hi everyone! i saw this on the SP Community Team page and had to come on over. I am a first year law student and it is insane!

I have been part of SP for awhile but didn't get serious about it until a few months ago. I am looking forward to sharing all the pains of being a full time student!

Hi runningqueen! I can't believe you're a med student! That's so great! I would never have what it takes to become a doctor. What's do you want your specialty to be?

Christina- Hungary? What is it like? What are you going to be doing there. I've never really heard much about it other than during history when we cover world wars and such...lol I think I want to become a world traveller! What do you say??

Hi everybody! I heard about this team on Gracia's page and you guys sounded like a great fit. There aren't very many people understand the crazy bits of college life. It's not that there isn't time- it's that it is difficult to have a schedule.
Anyway- I'm 25 and a medical student in Kansas City, Mo. I'm taking boards in June so I'm frantically trying to keep up with course work, study for boards, spend time with my fiancee and NOT compensate for any of the above by eating or avoiding excersise. I have this self sabotage thing that I do when I'm stressed. It's not a good thing. I hit a rough spot last month but I'm back on track again. You guys seem awesome so hopefully that will keep me honest.

Gracia, today is a new day. You can't expect to be perfect all of the time! I think you've done amazing so far and it was just one day! Here is to today being so much better and you'll be right on track again!!
I can't believe how many places you've been! I went to France for two weeks as an exchange student my last year of high school and I've been dying to get back, where did you go? Paris? lol I love that city but I was only able to stay for 3 days :(
I've always wanted to go to Greece! What is it like?

Not counting pleasure trips... Last year I lived several months in Greece, France and London, now I'm just going there for a week. It's my first time in London as a tourist, I've been living there for a few months in 2001, 2004 and last year... But my favourite country in the world in Spain, my country :)

Last night I screwed up big time. Yup, I did. After a month of living under opressive rules, far from my friends and all that, we had a big party with many friends from High School and I drank A LOT, ate A LOT and didn't dance much, so I kept my calories... :(
I'm not going to think about it, just keep doing well today and next week, and that's it.

Hey everyone. I'm 20 and a college student from Oklahoma. I go Southwestern OK State University, it takes way too long to write lol. Right now I'm majoring in elementary education and minoring in Spanish. I added a few of you already as my friends, cause I don't have any. Feel free to write and ask questions. I love it that we can have this group!! I will enjoy getting to know you all!

Today is a big drinking holiday on my campus (Unofficial St. Patrick's Day...it started here at U of I), but I'm NOT drinking (calories!!!). Instead, I went and worked out for an hour and now I'm going to go buy a new shirt as a reward for getting through this month. It was a toughie!

I ALSO love S&TC, ladies! I think that Sarah Jessica Parker is pretty gorgeous.

Linz!!! Congrats on your loss! Sounds like a GREAT start to a great weekend! Good for you and have fun on your date.

They were, but I'm guessing these girls were living in a bomb shelter or something, because otherwise I don't get how come they never saw it!

Welcome Cristina!
Oh now that I see your signature, yesterday we were subtitling an interview with SJ Parker for a Spanish tv channel at work and none of my co-workers (3 women in their mid-20s) knew who she was or had ever watched or heard about Sex and the City!

Hello. : ) I'm Sara, a college sophomore majoring in International Relations (my school's toughest LAS major) and Philosophy. I'm teaching myself Political Science on the side (Law School, here I come!) and like to take the hardest classes I can find because I am a glutton for punishment.

I'm around 187 now (highest 211ish) and working my way down to 120ish.

On the side, I love to read and dabble in some writing. I also like to knit, and occassionally sew. I think one of my rewards to myself will be getting my sewing machine FIXED so I can sew myself some cute clothing!

Nice to meet you all! This looks like a fabulous group.

Thanks!! If you want to see my crafts, go here: http://pinfish.blogspot.com
Yeah, I have a party planned for Saturday the 10th, so far 26 people coming, but I'm hoping for more! It's gonna be at a local pub where they provide board games and video games :D. I'm gonna TRY to eat healthy, so the sugary drinks I'm sure everyone will push on me won't take so much of a toll, haha. It should be a good time!
For my birthday itself, my fiance will probably take me to dinner or something :P We both have work and I have school, so it'll be that evening sometime.

Hello!
I'm Becca. I go to Hamline University in St Paul, Minnesota, and I'm a junior majoring in Anthropology. I'm aalllllmost 21 years old (on wednesday the 7th, hee!) and I have a part time job, and live with my fiance and two cats. I also take harp lessons and sometimes play violin in musicals for extra money. I craft as much as possible, mostly crochet, and I'm going to start selling crafts soon. Also I do archaeological illustration work for a professor at my college, and I take care of my disabled mother. Combine that with an overactive social life, exercise, and trying to plan and cook meals, and you get a girl who can't remember what free time is! Luckily my job is low-key so I can be on Sparkpeople at work :D.
Great idea for a group!

Hi everyone! I'm 20 and majoring in Linguistics, which takes a lot of brain power. I'm learning American Sign Language and hope to get an interpretation certificate...eventually go onto Deaf Ed or studying linguistics of other signed languages. I'd REALLY like to go to Africa and help establish Deaf schools there.

I'm just about to my goal and am trying to find a good balance for maintaining...I really don't want to gain anything back!

Good luck! Great group!

Well, I'll start by introducing myself.

I'm Grącia, a college student from Spain. I'm 22 and I'm majoring both in Translation&Interpreting and in Media Studies. That, and a 5 hours/day commute and a free lance job don't let me much time for anything else. Also, since I spend 15h/day out of home, eating is an exciting (and not so easy) adventure.

I'm looking forward to meet people here!
