I need a do-over.  I am kinda excited by this, actually.  I need to freshen up my look, it has gotten boring.  I need tees that I like looking at, clothes that are comfortable, bags made of vegan leather, go back to wearing black eyeliner, see how long I can grow my hair.

Lacking Originality Lacking Originality, originally uploaded by bang*. Day 140 / 365 So I finally got some time to head out and give the Fuji x100 a real workout today, off I headed to nearby Harrogate. Lucky me headed straight into the rain, now I said the fuji needed a workout but i'm not quite ready to test it's water repellency just yet. Spotted this shot and despite the voice in my head screaming at me not to shoot such a cliche fired off a quick frame before w … Read More

A Quickie

I made $25 my limit for a Coach bag on Ebay.  Someone actually outbid me, I was honestly surprised.  That’s ok, I discovered yesterday that there is a plethora of affordable cute vegan bags made by companies like Roxy and such, and I will use my $25 to buy one of those.  Zappos is evil, by the way.

Had a very relaxing day.  Found two pairs of flips (Memorial Day sale, 2 for $10) so I am good to go with that.  Did a whole bunch of other stuff, like watched Hangover 2, but I just realized I have to be in bed in less than 15 minutes, so I have to go!

So glad I have the next day off

I put in a max bid of $25  two days ago for a fraying black and white Carly bag, and with six days to go, it has climbed up to $21 already.  Wow.  Maybe I will go crazy and do $30.  We will see.

Did a little revamping of one listing that I have on Etsy.  I realized that the starfish necklace had the wrong pic as the first pic, and a terribly bare bones description.  I also spruced my DarkMuse Designs page on Facebook a bit too.  If I want stuff to sell, I need to put it out there.  Pretty much everytime I am online, I need to promote.

Today was a long day at Starbucks.  I like working,  it gives me something to do, haha.

I have this bad feeling that I gained alot of the weight back that I had lost so rapidly as a result of getting my braces first on back in December.  I was freaking starving all the time…

Going to try a little running.  See if that helps.

Figuring Stuff Out

I put in a bid for another Coach Carly bag.  It has the fraying and all that, but it is in black, and I want to keep this one.  Either that or I will turn it in, but I really liked it, just hated the brown leather and siggy.

I have been trying to figure out why I am so damn tired.  Here is what happened:  I went to bed at midnight, woke up around 7am, went back to sleep, and kinda flopped around until 10am.  I got up, had a bowl of honey nut cheerios, drank a glass of water, put away about two loads of laundry, and started a third.  I watched the entire Shaun OF THe Dead, which I have wanted to see forever, and I really enjoyed it.  Frank brought me home 4 chocolate covered donut holes, which I ate.  They were quite tiny and cute.  Then for lunch, I made myself 2 peanut butter-honey-banana sammiches.  I use PB2, which is a super low cal peanut butter, and I use those Sarah Lee sandwich thins.  Each sammich got half of a banana.  Then after a bit, I drove to the post office and shipped off a bracelet that I had sold, and then came straight back.  It was then that I started yawning.  What the french toast?  I had slept 10 hours!  Well, not straight, but still…  I was trying to drink as much water as I could before I went to work; I managed to drink at least a big glass and a half.  I also made sure to take my multi vitamin, my flaxseed supplement, and my fiber supplement.  I took a shower, and then fed Bart and went to work, yawning.

It is annoying.  Starbucks is a fast paced job, and when I am tired, it is doubly hard to keep up the pace.  So I feel so ugh when I get to work, because I worry that the work day will draaag and I hate that.

So I am cutting out the white stuff for a week.  I know it is going to help… I know it is because I eat too much bread and sugar.  Oi.  I need to cut out that garbage… I am getting fed up with getting tired right before I have to be at work.  Sigh.

I am also hoping to decide on where to go this August.  It looks like Frank might be taking summer classes, and I wonder how that is going to affect travelling to the East Coast.  I am getting a bit antsy now, since it is almost June, and I want to get the dates for the trip down and done.  Now it looks like I might end up going to NJ after all.  I don’t mind; actually, I really would prefer that, but I thought going to FL would be more vacation-ey.  Sigh.  We will see.
