I'm Back Again

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Okay, I'm back. Looks like the last time I was on here was in September, and I'd just transferred to UTD and had gotten a job with the President's office.

I've had a pretty busy semester. In short, it turns out that my new job SUCKED. I'm not going to go into detail, but this semester I have a new job, in the performing arts department (turns out that guy was serious when he said he'd keep my resume and contact me when a position became available!). Hopefully it goes better.

At some point, I guess I kind of "let myself go" because I was so busy with school and work and I just didn't have the energy to keep it up. But now, I'm feeling like I'm ready to go back to watching my food intake and exercising.

I think I've come to terms with the fact that I'm probably never going to just lose the weight and keep it off. I'm 26 years old, and hopefully I've got a long life ahead of me. Chances are, my weight is going to fluctuate as much as my bank account. At least I know what to do now when I do want to lose weight.

Honestly, I don't know what I weigh right now, because I haven't weighed myself in a while. I'm not even sure I care exactly how much I weigh, but I do know I need to lose at least a bit before it really all goes to heck.


Since Stellar-Lights asked, generally I've been pretty busy with my schoolwork, but I did customize a My Little Pony for my older sister for Christmas (she collects My Little Ponies). It was my first time customizing a pony, but the painting part at least is similar to working on Obitsu dolls. My sister is a web designer and is into foxes, so I used the Firefox logo as a "cutie mark".

    I haven't had much time for working on dolls, but I did customize a My Little Pony (just posted a photo at the end of my blog).

    Hey there, glad to see you about. Sorry the last job turned out to be a bad fit but this ones sounds better if just because of the hosting department. Finding a comfortable range to fluctuate within sounds like a good approach to your weight. How you feel will always be more important than what the scale reads.
    Been working on any cool projects? Dolls or stuff?
