Things I Want To Do

April 19, 2013 Leave a comment

There are a few things that I have always wanted to do but never had the time or money to do. Hopefully, soon, since I’ll be starting a new job, I’ll be able to afford to do these things.

First off, one thing that I wanted to do since high school is to learn how to make my own jewelry. I’ve always been very good with my hands and very creative, so I figure that that would be something I’d be good at. I also thought that if I become good enough, I could sell these items on Etsy, the web’s largest marketplace for handmade items!


Another thing I’d like to do is to get a real GOOD pair of running shoes and/or training shoes because I’d really like to focus on getting into shape. So far, as far as comfort goes, I’ve been really liking my old Asics shoes. I just need to find the right type of shoe for me.


That last thing ties into this third thing I’d like to do. Through Yelp, I have found a gym or fitness program rather that I’d like to enroll in (eventually). It’s more on the expensive side, but it’s personal training, where you focus on a specific goal, versus just having a gym membership. I’ve come to the conclusion that even if I had a gym membership, say to like 24 Hour Fitness, I still would have a hard time getting things done because I really don’t know where to start or what I should be doing in order to reach my goals. The place I found is called Fitness Ranes which is run by personal trainer, Chris Ranes. He has really good reviews on Yelp AND it is a structured program for your particular goals. Check out the website for more detailed info. There are even pictures of actual people, both before and after, who have made it to their fitness goals and they look awesome! You can tell these are local people too and not just some random paid actors or actresses posing for a camera.


Anyway, those are just a few things I know I’d like to REALLY do eventually. Cross your fingers that it’ll happen for me soon! 🙂


Ahhhh, 2013.

It’s the beginning of a brand new NEW YEAR! 2013. The start of any new year is always so full of promise. Everything is fresh. Everything is new. The slate is once again, metaphorically, (and maybe literally), clean.

I started off my year very well. I celebrated it with my dad and the BF. my sisters were all away for New Years, but it’s okay because I always make time for them anyway. But, I started off my year with the BF. He cleaned his house and I cleaned and organized mine as well. I’ve been exercising almost every day, aside from the days that it rains hard or when I catch a cold. I feel good.

I do however have a few specific goals to tend to this year.

1-Get a good, career-type job.
2-Pay off the bills.
3-Organize the finances.
4-Eat healthier and in smaller portions.
5-Exercise to shed pounds.
6-Lose weight and diminish fatty areas such as, arms, stomach, face, and legs. I’d ideally like to get back down to 125 lbs. I think that that was a good size for me.
7-Make more time for my friends.
8-Be more forgiving/nicer/understanding.

I hope you all have started off the year with a few goals and more importantly, can accomplish them!!! Happy 2013!

Do I have a camera?

Is it a digital camera?

Do I have pictures to show from said camera?

Because my camera hardly sees the light of day. Or night for that matter. I mean–don’t get me wrong, I upload MANY pictures to Facebook, however, almost 90% of them are taken with my phone. Ones that I can’t really develop.


I have made a new goal: to bring my camera, charged and ready, to take actual,  good quality, develop-able pictures.

Yep. Wish me luck!
