I miss Sparkpeople. :( Here's an update as to why I have been gone!

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Hey there, I just wanted to let all my sparkfriends know I miss you a lot and I wish I could come online every day and update my spark like I used to... Problem is, BOTH of my computers are now broken and I RARELY ever get access to come online.

There IS good news however. I managed to FINALLY get a new job at Office Depot. I JUST got this job after months of searching and applying for about 30 jobs per week (I kid you not!)...BUT finally! I have a job. Which means...I get money again! I am saving up and my super nerd friend who programs and builds computers for a living is going to help me build a super computer!!! We are going to order all the parts online. This computer is going to be so high-tech and powerful (I will be paying about $1500 for parts, which doesn't include the monitor) if I wanted to sell this computer, it's worth store-wise would be about $4,000! Buuut, I WON'T be selling it! I will be using it for gaming and sparking again just like I used to!!!

It's going to take me a couple paychecks/couple months to save for the cost of building my new computer. As soon as it is built, I am for sure coming back to spark and getting into shape again because I am very lazy without it!

I also stopped going to the gym because my gym membership was cancelled as I could no longer afford to pay for it without a job. I even moved again to get away from a very sick and disgusting roommate so now I am far away from the free running track. (This makes me very sad) However, I am planning to join a new gym soon as I will have money to be able to afford to join a gym again! I'm not going back to my old gym, I'm bored of it and I want to join a new one to keep me interested.

I'm pretty sure I gained a bit of weight back from being stressed out I turned to comfort food. I'm afraid to step on the scale... :( I'm going to try and start working on this now even though I can't record what I am doing on sparkpeople...What I COULD do is carry around a journal with me and start recording everything in that until I get my new computer up and running and then I can be online EVERY DAY!

Anyways, I wanted to share with you all my Savannah monitor taming and training videos on youtube that I have made 100% myself. My little Savira is growing up very fast! One day she will be very big! Please check out my channel. I think you will be amazed and surpised at how tame and friendly monitor lizards can really be if you take the time to spend with them, to love them and teach them that humans are their friends and as a result you have a pet lizard that is dog tame! As I am typing this even, my Savira is calmly resting on my lap.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I had fun making them.

I look forward to returning to sparkpeople as soon as I can build my new computer and all that fun stuff. See you all soon!

Love you guys!
