catch-up and a meme December 2, 2007

looking over my recent posts, i’ve noticed a few disturbing trends. not only has my posting been pretty sporadic, but i haven’t talked at all about what’s been going on in my life or updated you on things that i brought up a while back. so, tonight i’m going to play a bit of catch-up. here we go:

  • i accepted a summer accounting internship.

  • grandma’s surgery went ok, but she’s been having a pretty rough recovery. it’s very sad to hear about.

  • i won a few contests. rachelle had a creativity challenge where she asked readers to finish something and post pictures in the flickr pool. i won the random drawing with my work finishing squarey and got a gift certificate to green prairie fibers. sarah had a grand opening contest for her new online yarn store, perfect day yarns and i was lucky enough to get chosen by the random number generator. look at the goodies that will be coming my way! i chose the rose lipt maiden (pink) colorway…. gorgeous!

  • rachel is starting to get worried that she won’t get enough mittens/slippers for this year’s soaring eagles project. if you have ANY spare knitting time between now and dec. 17, please please please consider knitting something for this project! the details are here.

  • i had a great thanksgiving at home with the family… unfortunately, i didn’t want to come back to school. ^^ i just have next week and then exam week before winter break. why can’t break start now?!

also, i plan on getting missy’s seven weird/random things meme (from september! yikes!) out of my inbox tonight. in my defense, i told her i was horrible at completing these things!

  1. i love star trek. especially star trek: the next generation. i was very sad when it finished its syndication run on spike tv in october. i remember watching with my parents when i was a little kid… back when there were primetime shows that were actually somewhat appropriate for kids to watch.

  2. i would rather walk the 1.1 miles to class than wait 5 minutes for a campus bus to take me there. i dislike waiting in general, but especially when it’s optional.

  3. in eighth grade, i joined a virtual pet website called neopets. i’ve gone back and forth between not playing at all and being totally addicted. it is definitely a waste of time, but it’s still a guilty pleasure…

  4. the last time i did one of these random thing memes, one of my things was: ” i am still dreaming that when i turn twenty, (next month! i’m so old, HAHA) all my zits and acne will magically go away. i am not horribly afflicted, but still!” as it turns out, my acne has only gotten worse! stupid skin!

  5. i hate waking up in the morning. i always set my cell phone and i’m so out of it when i wake up that for months i puzzled over the words “alarm” and “snooze” and managed to confuse myself. i think i finally understand now! ^^

  6. i think i could eat ice cream all day long. it currently tops my list of favorite foods. my favorite flavor right now is publix premium cool mint cookie low-fat frozen yogurt. so tasty! oh! and vanilla yogurt that i mix peanut butter in. that’s amazing, too.

  7. ummm! when i go home, the two biggest differences i notice between school and home are that the bathroom countertop is much lower and we have much less water pressure. i don’t really notice my bed being softer or the food being better or any of that, just the countertop, hahaha.

man, that was tough! i need to go do schoolwork now! good night!

    if you’re worried about your acne Pro activ is seriously the answer. I thought it was just a gimick but thought hey it can’t get any worse than it already is so I tried it and now…. HOLY MOLY! Its amazing the difference, well worth it!

    I LOVE ice cream too!!

    Good luck with your exams. You are lucky you get out so early my college senior son doesn’t finish until the 22nd. Very little time to do any Christmas shopping…

    Good luck! I’ve just finished mine…

    Congrats on all your contest wins! Best wishes for your Grandma. I’ve had horrible acne since I was 13. I’ve used everything. What works for me is Differin (topical gel) and being on the pill (controls hormone-related breakouts, and gives me better skin). Proactive didn’t really do it for me. It’s just hydrogyn peroxide wash and toners. BTW, that stuff will stain/bleach fabrics that come in contact with it, and if your skin is sensitive, it will burn.

    Check out the recipe blog I started.

    I would have sent you an invite but I can’t seem to get into my yahoo to get my e-mail addresses!!!
