peace off.

i have ashes on my forehead because it's ash wednesday. which means lent has begun.

our apartment decided that lent didn't begin until we got our ashes.

i was thinking about what to give up for lent. i came up with:

- shoes (i think you're supposed to sacrifice something and this wouldn't be considered a sacrifice since i hate wearing shoes)
- complaining (too hard.)
- talking (too hard.)
- breathing (WAY too hard.)
- telling the truth (again, i think the sacrifice is supposed to improve your innerself.... so, no go.)

i finally decided that i'm going to give up being lazy.

everyday i'm going to run. even if it's only for 10 minutes. even when i'm in mazatlan. even after a late night. even after a freaking busy day. even before kickboxing and yoga. 

wish me luck. i'm definitely going to need it.

what are you giving up?

procrastination tip 4: blog

today is a happy day. why? two posts in less than 24 hours, of course!

it's also a happy day because i've adopted new flower flip flops. this is kind of like rontuaroo from island of the blue dolphins... anyone? you know. ron-tu the wild doggie dies and so ron-tu's baby, rontuaroo, comes along and takes his place. please tell me you know what i'm talking about.

i lost these adorable flip flops earlier this quarter. you may remember them:

yes. those ones.

today i made the long journey to target and bought some more because i missed them.

so they are my rontuaroo flip flops. 

some people...

rant of the quarter about boys:

train of thought...

today i went to target and found three boxes of mac and cheese for one dollar. what a steal, right? then in the next aisle, i found canned pears- my favorite. this got me thinking about my eating habits which mostly consist of said mac and cheese and canned pears. which got me thinking about cooking and how i need to learn how to do that. which got me thinking about how TWO, not just one but TWO, boys this year have asked me out by saying: "maybe you can cook for me sometime."


ok. first of all, this isn't the fifties. i am a girl and i don't know how, or really for that matter LIKE to cook. i know. shocking. second of all, what kind of game is that? rude, people, it's just plain rude to ask someone out by suggesting they do all the work. that's like me saying, "hey, maybe you can take me to the movies and buy my movie ticket and some popcorn." rude.

i'm going to go eat my cheap mac and cheese and probably open up a can of pears.

bon appetit.

let's go clubbin'.

check it out.

i'm starting this club. for reals. i'm not just talking about it anymore. i'm actually going to do it. i'm very nervous and excited and stressed out about it already. it's going to be great.

it's a magazine club for people who are interested in entering the industry. i have this huge vision of printing 1,000 student-made magazines by the end of next spring quarter (2010). i don't know if that'll actually happen, but i'm going to work my butt off to find out if i can do it. if WE can do it. i'm holding a general interest meeting on my birthday (i'm hoping that it'll bring me luck and that it'll give me confidence to speak in front of people) and i hope that a lot of people will come. because i need a lot of help if we're going to have 1,000 magazines printed by next spring quarter.

i'm super excited.

suggestions of club names and/or magazine names are greatly appreciated. =)
