Joan (SHASTA11) has asked me to post updates a number of times and I finally am getting around to it. The past few months have been a whirlwind. 1. There has been school. Lots and lots of school. I graduate Magna Cum Laude this Saturday... Read more
Eating Animals

I am a vegetarian. My entire life, I have been some form of a vegetarian. And if I am entirely truthful, as I strive to be, it was never a socially conscious decision. I grew up in a meat-and-potatoes family but did not enjoy meat. If my dad... Read more

Tuesday, January 26, 2010      4 comments

I was STARVING all day today, which was probably the whole 'burned 800 cals yesterday ate 1500' deal. I was higher today but I truly was conscious of when I ate and still stayed on the "no sweets, 2 ounces of carbs" thing. :) No cardio today b... Read more

I know it has been awhile, and truthfully I have been living in my quiet corner of the world, working a lot, preparing my graduate school apps, taking Yoda to obedience, and keeping up with my schoolwork. With that in mind, please help me with ... Read more
When did this happen!?

So as you may or may not know, I danced for 13 years. Compared to normal people I was pretty flexible but by dance standards I was awful....tight EVERYWHERE. I gave up dance when I graduated high school (until my recent foray into tap) and gav... Read more
FML (Okay, not really!)
Tuesday, September 15, 2009      6 comments

WHEW! The first few days of my weeks are always incredibly busy, but then they taper off. I have to keep myself from getting TOO overwhelmed. We had a bit of a scandal last weekend that involved Zach being a dummy and getting his credit cards ... Read more

I love Ben Folds, and the lyric fits so I will use it shamelessly ("Emmaline, Ben Folds). To be honest I woke up in a grumpy mood today for the following reasons: *Yesterday was insanely busy: I didn't make it to the gym until 8:45 PM and... Read more

Can we talk about gray** for just a moment? Spring 2008 Fashion Week (which hit sometime in August, 2007 by the way) was the revelation of gray nails. Not that tacky shimmery silver mess, but true GRAY. No shimmer. Dove gray at Karen Walker ... Read more
Highs and Lows
Monday, August 17, 2009      3 comments

When I was younger and went to church we did an exercise every week called Highs and Lows. We would go around the room and state our "highs" (good things that happened) for the week and our "lows" (bad things that happened). I love this idea b... Read more

I am home....and I am pretty sure luck was on my side in the process. I arrived to check my luggage at United and was able to bypass everyone else in line because I was flying Premium. I get up there and both of my suitcases are WAY overweight... Read more
