Clever Title About Things Being Better
Sunday, September 16, 2012      7 comments

Yeah, insert it there. I thought about "light at the end of the tunnel", "beacon of hope", or even "for the better". I didn't think any of them were really fitting, though. I meant to write this update several days ago, but as always, I was... Read more
Trying to Keep My Head Above Water
Saturday, September 01, 2012      8 comments

... So far I'm doing okay with that. I'm still praying for things to get better. They certainly haven't gotten much worse, which I guess is acceptable. My dad called me today to let me know he took my mom to the ER. She had been experienci... Read more
The Vacation That Was Anything But...
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      10 comments

A little more than a week ago (maybe two weeks ago?) I had a status update that was rather cryptic and down. I still feel very sad and upset. I thought a lot about whether I wanted to blog about it, how much I wanted to reveal, or if I would jus... Read more
Cooking School with Prof. Jillybean25!
Tuesday, August 07, 2012      9 comments

My roommate has a few friends that are, erm... "underskilled" in the kitchen. He told them I'm pretty handy with the cooking and skillz myself and set up a "class" so to speak. The first thing they really wanted to learn was knife skills. S... Read more
Some Updates. Some fun stuff. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!!!
Saturday, July 28, 2012      13 comments

Well, I've got some updates on my financial situation(s). Some good, some... not. Most of it remains unchanged. However, I finally was able to track down some Lost & Found info for the convention center and I shot out an email to the department.... Read more
Stand Up Paddleboarding!!!
Monday, July 23, 2012      11 comments

On Saturday I went stand up paddleboarding with a handful of the San Diego Spark Team. Talk about a fun day! I'm so glad I got to go and spend an afternoon with such wonderful people. Especially since I've been feeling so down in the dumps latel... Read more
Explaining Myself for This Week
Friday, July 20, 2012      7 comments

So, the last few status updates here on SP haven't been too terribly chipper. Obviously that's out of character for me. I consider myself to be a stable, cheerful, optimistic individual that experiences the usual ebb and flow of human emotion. Y... Read more
3 Week Post Surgery Ass Kickin'
Sunday, June 24, 2012      5 comments

As in, I'm kickin' ass... in the healing department. I mentioned not too turribly long ago that I had busted open (while shopping at Target, no less) the day my staples came out. Happy to report I have only a bit of scab left before my skin is t... Read more
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Gallbladder
Thursday, June 07, 2012      11 comments

CAUTION: Weak stomachs should skip this one. Photo at the bottom contains "graphic" material. Today marks one week since my surgery. It hasn't been nearly as hellish as I was expecting, which as you can imagine is a huge relief. I'm not say... Read more
CHOP-CHOP in 5! And other things...
Sunday, May 27, 2012      10 comments

So, its [now] 5 days away from my surgery. Thank goodness, too. I check in to the hospital at 6am on Thursday morning and my surgery should begin at 8am. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Actually, I'm pretty terrified. As much as I've be... Read more
2 Weeks 'til THE BIG CHOP-CHOP
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      5 comments

Today marks the two weeks until I go under the chopsticky knife... or whatever... I have some reflections on the last two weeks and some thoughts on the upcoming two. Firstly, my last blog did not mean to call anyone out and/or shame/guilt ... Read more
So Glad April is OVER. Good effin' riddance.
Wednesday, May 02, 2012      13 comments

Well, its that time where I review last month (gulp!) and plan for this month. Let's just get this over with. I'll start with what I did successfully. I made it passed 500 fitness minutes for the month, but just barely. At least I did it, b... Read more
A Rocky Start
Thursday, April 12, 2012      6 comments

This month hasn't gone nearly as well as last. I'm not letting that deter me, but for the moment, I'm just going with the flow until things "level out", so to speak. It didn't help that spring break began right at the beginning of April, b... Read more
April Goals
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      8 comments

Since I'm spending the week at my parent's house, I decided to take it slow with the goals. Coming here presents its challenges, such as food to be eaten that isn't always within my control, space to exercise, etc. So, I'm going to allow myself ... Read more

Sunday, April 01, 2012      13 comments

Before I review the rest of my March goals, I first would like to review my 4th goal for the month of March. You'll recall: ... Read more
