ugh evil evil weather!!!

I am pretty sure I can blame my feverish- throbbing- achy body on the bitch that is mother nature!!

Not only is Cincinnati one of the most humid places in the summer... its also fickle... yesterday 60 and rainy... today 90 and humid... tomorrow 30 and snowing...

This is making me feel fine one day and horrible the next :(

ps I miss him.

Oh.Em.Gee!!!

So I moved out on my own!!! And honestly I LOVE IT!!! True I am scared that I won't be able to pay my bills but I think I am pretty spoiled. I mean I have a nice laptop with Free Wireless internet, a brand new plasma flat screen TV and DVD player, and an apartment that has all utilities included, including free cable!

My job seems to be going well. I need to just not speak my thoughts so openly. I am trying to work on that but its hard after being able to say whatever you want for 4 years and everyone understand you.

So... ya wanna know about the beau... thats all you really care about isn't it.... well... HE IS AMAZING!!! Yay!

Everything is so new and crazy. Its just all really interesting. I am glad that I got my own place instead of moving out with my sister or waiting till I got engaged or married. Its awesome to come home and do what I want when I want how I want.

I have been on the hunt for an accent chair... nothing yet but I am bound and determined... I am also looking for a rug. I found one that I LOVE but its $129 dollars... which isn't a bad price for it but its such a large chunk of change to spend at once...

Summer Goal

So the beau and I are great. :D He is leaving the day after my bday for NH for 10 weeks :( Some stupid summer thing his family HAS to do. Well he has to because until August he still lives with them.

But during these 10 weeks while he is gone I am determined to loose some weight. I mean really determined. I asked my mother to honestly tell me if I have gained weight lately and she said yes.... YES! My mother told me I am fatter! This is upsetting because I have been trying not to eat as much and I have totally cut out alcohol from my diet. I know part of the problem is my job. I use to walk around and lift things and do some physical activity but now I sit at a desk 10 hours a day and thats it... so...

My plan is to start running. No seriously.... stop laughing! I mean it!

I am going to start slow and work up to as much as I can. I would like to loose between 10-20 lbs by the time beau gets back.

Things I am going to do to help:

Stop drinking as much pop! ( I am limiting myself to 1 can of pop a day)
Stop snacking all the time!
Eat Smaller Portions
Eat healthier food!
No more fast food!

with those and running hopefully I can loose some weight! Wish me luck!

Growing up is hard to do.....

So I am happy to say that I have gotten all my finances under control. I am working my way to paying everything off by December so that I can move out by January of 2010.

I have a couple of thaaaangs going on right now that I am trying to sort out. I have been offered a temporary co-op for the summer. The problem is that they want me to start now one day a week from 8 am to 5 pm. Problem is that I have a full time job already that I work at, albeit not in graphic design, but one that pays the bills and is permanent. We all know how hard it is to find a job right now. And I know that if I just do the graphic design job that I wouldn't make enough to pay my bills at all, especially not to pay them all off by January. I was going to look for a second job this summer anyway because I want my goal to really come true....

mmmkay... now my other situation is that my beau's family is religious. I am not. Only because I have yet to find a religion that has spoken to me. I feel like this could cause problems in the future. I hope not. But it might.

Other than those problems I am a pretty happy chick right now. SUPER BUSY! But happy!!!

Re- planning my Resolutions

Ok. Seriously. This is the beginning of my resolutions. I am allowing myself to start over. I feel like I jumped in to fast and didn't really think about what needed to be done and how it was going to be possible for me to do it. But luckily I am a planner so I should be able to figure this all out. Form a plan and get everything I want accomplished.

The goals that I NEED to accomplish are:

1. Become more organized and clean up after myself.
2. Save money- Pay off all debt.
3. Exercise: become healthier.

I feel like I should list my obstacles so that I know what I am up against:

1. Laziness: I work 40 hours a week and go to school full time. I get one solitary day to sleep in and do nothing, so its hard to want to get up early and do stuff like exercise and clean.

2. Busy: See above.

3: Distractions: boyfriend, homework, internet, tv, sleeping. All of these things come in the way of my goals but some are more of a priority others aren't. Homework comes before everything, then probably boyfriend. Sleep is needed but I usually do that at the appropriate time. The TV and the internet are addicting and so excess able that its hard not to want to sit here all day and Google things because it WAAAY more fun than cleaning or exercising.

4. Stores/sales/wants: The money situation is because I have a tendency to make myself believe that I need something even though I really just want it. I need to stop doing this.

In the next week I hope to formulate a plan to make sure that all of these things are put in motion to become solved. Hopefully I will do this. Not just for me but for my future.

I want money! Lots and Lots of money!

So far my resolutions not going to well.( I bought chinese food for dinner.) I figured after not being able to eat for three days I was entitled to some good yummy food.

Although I did pay off an entire bill today from when I was in the hospital. So one down like 5 more others.

I am thinking about figuring some system out so that all my bills will be paid off in a year. I am thinking that would take a lot of math and time, so that's not quite done yet.

I have made more work for myself buy showing my talent for art at work and now they want me to do stuff for them. (and no I don't get paid separately for it!)

Whelp! Imma gonna go watcha movie...

For the past 2 days I haven't been able to eat anything. My stomach hates me apparently and I honestly don't know what I have done to it to make it act this way.

Due to the fact that I am slightly obsessed with House I usually fear that my ailment is something more than what it is (well... that's what my mother says anyway..). I think I have a bleeding ulcer or cancer of the stomach and she thinks that I have heart burn or the stomach flu.

I can kind of see stomach flu except no throwing up and the other was is fine to... but I still have the worst pain eating, even breathing kind of hurts. I constantly have a headache and am severely tired. I sometimes feel feverish and other times feel nausea. And NO I AM NOT PREGNANT! It would be immaculate conception if I was, trust me!

Other than dying I am actually very very happy. School is coming along. By new beau has really inspired me to do more studying. He brings out the good in me... so far. Not that I am thinking its going to fail I just mean it's been a week... we need time to develop are true thoughts and effects on each other. But he really has made me WANT to do my best and not just get by with my photographic memory. Obviously the beau and I are good. *sigh* I love the start of relationships... everything is so wonderful and new and happy...

Work is going well. I am really not looking forward to working 4 10 hour shifts for the rest of my life but what I am thinking is that from 6 am to 7am I will just get stuff ready for my day.. then from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm I will get my stuff ready to leave. Muahaahaaha then its kind of like an eight hour day. Except the whole waking up at the crack of dawn.

But I do want to say that I am going to make a resolution. I need to better myself not only for me for my future... I need to be more organized AND not spend money on things I don't need.

So far the next 6 months I will:

-pack my lunch
-clean my room
-purge all clothing I don't wear
-NO FAST FOOD!!!
-No shopping for the following
~no skirts
~no dresses
~NO SHOES
~NO PURSES
( I can buy CHEAP/CLEARANCE deals of nice tops or bottoms for work purposes ONLY!!)

Goals: 1. To get into the habit of keeping things clean, always. 2. Save up enough money to pay off debt and move out!
