Not much has been going on in my life, yet I feel the need to post something. xD

It's hard to believe that January's almost gone. This month has gone by way too quickly. Work has been kind of weird-- some days, it's awesome; other days, it's just shit. Hopefully I have more awesome days in the future.

I've been talking a lot more with my sister, so that's been nice.

I'm also having a really good time with this guy Lovebug set me up with. He's a little younger than me, but he's really sweet and easy to get along with. We're having our third date(?) on Wednesday hopefully, so... yeah. Not bad for having just met him on the 10th.

I've been keeping up with my diet and fitness stuff religiously over the past few weeks, and it's paid off. I can fit into a smaller size! :D I'm at 16W right now, but I can wear 14W stuff. The 14W is the smallest plus size, so after that... I'll be in normal sizes. I don't think I've been in a normal size since my sophomore/junior year of high school. I'm probably going to cry when the day comes that I'm able to fit into a regular 18 or 16.

Taking the semester off has been pretty nice. I've been keeping track of all of the movies I've watched and the books I've read. So far, for January I have read 10 books and watched 6 movies. Not too shabby. In addition, Ana and I have been marathoning Ronin Warriors, which has been amazing.

Short post for tonight, but I'm trying to finish up laundry before I head to bed. :D All in all, January's been a pretty decent month.

I think my icon perfectly sums up my mood at the moment.

The Friends of the Library had their annual book sale this weekend. Today, from 4 to 6 p.m., they had the $5.00 bag sale. I dragged [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] there, since we were already hanging out. xD I got a ton of books, including a cookbook and some ~romance~ novels. Overall, I was quite pleased.

[Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I were there for more than one reason, however. We've decided to... read Twilight. I, for one, am curious to see what the big deal is about, and if they do actually suck as much as people say they do.

The book sale didn't have any copies, so we got two copies of the first book from the library. We've already made it through the first two chapters, and right now I want to punch Bella in the face. She reminds me so much of a Mary Sue: all of the boys love her, everyone wants to talk to her and be her friend, and she's way too stuck up about how smart she is. She is also too whiny, and the dialogue in these first two chapters is so bad. Hopefully we can make it through the first book. xD

Work has been busy; school has been "meh." I need to start thinking about applying to CSU, even though there are so many things I need to do at Front Range first.

On the dating front- I've gone out on at least four (I think) coffee dates since I started doing the LoveBug thing. That's four more dates than I've had in the past year and a half. Too bad I haven't liked any of the guys I've been matched with. No chemistry whatsoever, and some of them have been jerks. Hopefully someone will come along that I'll actually feel something with.

On the plus side, I've lost a little over 18 pounds since the beginning of September.
jupiterhalo: ([Misc] Trust me)
I have nothing else to do until I go to work in about fifteen minutes, so I'll make a quick LJ post. I've been trying to wake up earlier than my usual time; the plan is that I'm going to try and walk/jog/whatever for an hour before work, since that's really the only time I can do it. I think that the exercise will be good for me; my boss works out before she comes to work and she's always chipper. xD

I've been so unmotivated about exercising, though. At least I haven't gained any weight back, and I went down a size in clothes. :D Still at 12 pounds lost, which is really great. I think I'd be more eager to do something, if I had an iPod or some other kind of music player that I can use while I do it. However, money's been really tight lately. I think I'm going to have a little bit left over when I get paid on the 5th... but that's going towards pre-reg for NDK, the rest of my stuff for Setsuka and hopefully Maria, and things I need like food and gas.

I'm also considering just canceling the cable that we have. :| I think that I can count how many times I've actually watched TV with my fingers and still have a few left over. I don't really believe that I should keep paying for something that I'm not using, and it'd be an extra $10 a month that I'd save. I guess that I should talk to [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and see if she'd mind paying for it, since she watches TV the most out of the three of us. But, since her sister's here, I don't really want to talk to her about money stuff until her family leaves.

On a brighter note, school is almost done with! I've gotten straight B's so far, and I'm really proud of myself. Class technically ends on the 6th, but if we pass the final project on the 4th, we don't need to take the final exam. x3 And then I get a small break before school starts for me again on the 25th. It won't be as bad, since I decided to drop Astronomy. I'm only taking three classes, and one of them ends on October 8th.

Work has also been going better. I've gotten a little more used to working at the front again, even though we get some really weird calls. xD Bobbie's getting surgery on August 20th, though. So I'll be working the front desk full-time until she hopefully comes back on the 31st. That'll be interesting, needless to say.

I've been feeling really irrationally angry lately. Maybe it's because I don't get as much sleep as I need. But either way, every day I wind up feeling so angry all the time. xD I really hope that goes away soon...

Bawww. I guess that I had better get to work now.

I've held my peace for a while, but I think that now it's time that I say how I feel.

Can it be December yet? I'm really, really looking forward to that.

Last night, I went to see Star Trek with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. I hadn't wanted to see it since it came out, since I'm not really into the whole live action sci-fi stuff. However, I will say that I was pretty impressed by it! I probably won't see it again in theaters, unless I go with another group, but I'll probably end up watching it on DVD once or twice. I thought that the reboot was really well done.

I also went to see Plasmacrash with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] on Friday! I think they get better every time I see them. Joe only played three songs of their set, since he's still not feeling well, but those three songs he played with them sounded the best. Elite was a really awesome band, too, even though I was only able to stay for about two songs of their set. I want to see them again, all the way through.

Work was a total pain in the ass last week. We had Monday off, so that caused a lot of our work to pile up. I ended up working straight through, from 8-4 (and 7-almost 4:30 on Friday) without taking a lunch and just going home early in order to try and catch up from the weekend. And this next week is going to be even crazier, since I have to help one of my coworkers with one of her projects... and school also starts on Tuesday.

But! On a good note... I'm going to start riding my bike to work on the days that I don't have school, and I'm going to try and not drive as much as possible. So, if I need to go somewhere and it's within biking distance of the apartment, then I'm going to bike. I'm also going to buy a new iPod in June, since my old one isn't working. I'm also going to pay off my small bill and get that out of the way, before I start working on my loan. Hopefully, if I can stick to the budget that I've made for myself, I'll have my loan paid off by November/December. Then it's to work on my credit card debt.

This weekend isn't long enough! I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow. At least payday is on Wednesday. :D
jupiterhalo: (Worst date ever)
So, last week or a few weeks ago I weighed myself. Apparently, I've lost five pounds. :D That was really exciting! So, yeah. I haven't done all that much to lose weight lately, but I'm glad that there's been a little bit of success!

Okay, with that out of the way... I have a question. I think a few people know that I'm seriously going to start trying to lose weight. Which means that I'm going to join a gym, get as much exercise as I can, cut down on food, etc. I was thinking earlier how things like looking good in a cosplay outfit, looking and being healthier, etc. may not be enough of an incentive to lose the amount of weight that I'm aiming for. So... I decided that once I reach my goal, or get close to it, I was going to take a trip. I was thinking of going someplace out of the country; maybe London. If I can get there, would anyone be interested in taking this trip with me? I think it would be sad to see all of these cool things without someone there to share it with. I've been looking into travel sites, and a hotel and flight is only like... an average of $700 per person right now. If no one wants to take me up on this offer, that's totally fine. :D I just thought it would be a cool thing to see if anyone would be interested in traveling with me. And you've got time to set aside money and all that; it's not like I would lose all of these pounds in a matter of months. xD; But, yeah. That's my question.

I'm going to start work on my taxes now.
jupiterhalo: (Cactuar)
Wheee~ So, I should be sleeping. In fact, I should have been sleeping hours ago. xD But I ended up staying at work until a little past 8 p.m., and then Shannon and I powered through 10 episodes of Death Note so I could finish the series.

I also got some of my room cleaned, and everything unpacked. Looked at some NDK pictures, and realized that I actually looked pretty good in my costumes this year! Hopefully, by next year, though, I shall be more photogenic. <3 Or something.

I'm still breaking even with my weight, so I guess that it's good that I didn't gain any at NDK. :3~

I still need to finish Supernatural. And get caught up on work. And school. So many things to do, when all I want to do is stay home and relax!
jupiterhalo: (Umbrella)
Big changes coming for my hair! xD

Today, Shannon dyed it black for me. My parents threw a fit, of course. Or my mom did, anyway. My dad hasn't seen it yet. And! I think I'm going to cut it short after NDK. :3 Of course, I need to find a suitable style... I hate having a round face. xD Nothing looks good on me!

Stressing out about weight, of course. I lost five pounds and found out last night that I had gained it all back. *sigh* Once we get back from the con, I'm going to look into some sort of diet program. I want to wear cute clothes and be awesome!

I went out and bought some of those meal drink things, so I'm going to try those and see how they work. Hopefully they'll help!

And I think I'm going to try and start keeping track of how much weight I've lost or gained... possibly on a weekly basis. Again, we'll see how that works!

Sooo... for tonight, 0.

And Supernatural is so good! ;o; I watched the first three episodes of the third season, as I just got the DVD set yesterday from Amazon. So... that means about 12 or 13 to go before the 18th.

This weekend was actually really productive!

I watched some movies and cleaned up a lot of my room, went supply shopping for work and bought some more stuff for my desk at home, and rearranged some of the books on my shelves. I need to get a shoe rack for my door, however.

I also finished Acheron in about... four or five days. :D That's not too bad, considering how little time I had to read. I felt like going to the library today and getting some more books, but I decided to check out the new Super Target and look for a new messenger bag. I didn't find anything there, nor at TJMaxx or Ross, so I'm going to look when I go to Denver the weekend before school starts. Hopefully I can find something at Flatirons or something.

I still have a ton of laundry to do, and more cleaning. >_> Plus, training all day tomorrow. At least I've been getting a chance to sleep in a little! I could definitely get used to that.

Edit: Curses! Why can't I lose weight? >_> I just weighed myself, and I weigh even more than I did the last time I checked! Wtf! I'm trying to cut back on meals and eating more soup and stuff, as well as healthier meals... so what gives? Stupid body. I wish I was thin.

I know this is late (but since this is the first time my computer's been working for at least three or four days), happy New Year, everyone! I hope it was safe, and that there was a lot of fun going on. :D

My New Year's weekend was all right... I spent yesterday working (10:00-7:00), and did the same today (10:30-7:30). Yesterday, after I finished work, I went and took a nap, then ate dinner at Old C's. :D After that, I decided to start writing my Scott x Jean story, and got about a handwritten page of that done. After that, I played "Resident Evil 4" for a few hours, then decided to go to bed. And then I worked. xD I've just about doubled my hours this week. I have Tuesday off, but then I work for the next eight straight. That includes inventory. :< But that's fine... I mean, I stay up that late anyway; I may as well be getting paid for it. xD

In other news, my car died while Shannon and I were hanging out tonight. xD We were at Pulcinella's getting me some pizza (I hadn't eaten since around 1 p.m. today). And then Foxxxy just died as we were turning out of the Hampton Inn. We were stranded for about 2 1/2 hours... I swear, my toes were NOT happy about that. Since I don't have to work tomorrow, my dad and I are going to go back and look at it. Hopefully we can get it to work... otherwise, I'm going to have to bum rides off someone, since my family doesn't have any money to get me a new car.

Hmmm... well, my New Year's resolutions are pretty much the same as they were last year:

-Try and lose a lot of weight (after all, I want to be down to around 120, eventually :D)
-Save money up for Fanime and NDK
-Try and get a computer for my room

Now that I have a VCR back, I've been playing games like crazy. I've been really into "RE 4," especially since I started my game over. It took me all of two days to get to where it took me over six months the first time I played it. xD I'm doing really well, and it's a lot of fun. Hopefully I can finish that soon and cross it off the list of games I need to play.

And in other random news, I found some Angus Macfadyen icons. xD That made me really happy. I <3 that man.
jupiterhalo: (Default)
Happy New Year's, everybody! I hope that it was a safe and fun event for all.

So, here are my new year's resolutions:

-Exercise more (a LOT more. If I want to get down to 120 pounds, I have my work cut out for me. ^_^; But hopefully I'll be able to do it this year!)

-Spend less money. As soon as I get money of any kind, I immediately go out and spend it. And that's bad! I need to start saving for things I want, like a car and a computer. Also, I want to have PLENTY of money for NDK. So all of the spending I'm doing has to stop.

Well, it's been a very interesting year, and I'll talk about it later. But now I need to get to bed, seeing as how I have to go to Foldy's in about four hours. e_E Be safe, everyone! <3
