30 Day Photo Challenge, 07.

I found this challenge online on tumblr, and the source is here, but it no longer works. I would still like to do it, and that's going to be one of my upcoming goals in the next few months.  We'll see what happens!

Also, happy 2014 so far! It's been a decent enough year so far.

Last Day of 2013, 06.

I'll be spending the night at work, which is just as good as anything else, I suppose. I spend 99.9% of my time at work anyway, so why not another NYE? But I'll bring in the actual midnight time with my sister at home, so that part won't be at work, just everything else leading up to it.

I spent Christmas day in the hospital, so let's hope this holiday is better.  Luckily for me, my caffeine headaches happened while I was suffering my food poisoning from work, so they weren't nearly as noticeable.

Nothing really to talk about on here at the moment, I'm sure the new year will bring interesting things.  Hopefully nothing but good ones.

Day One, 05.

Today has not been the best day. On Friday, we had a Christmas dinner at work, and we all got food poisoning from something we ate there.  We are still not sure what caused it (potatoes or ham? That's all I had to eat there)  and I've been sick since then. I called in sick today because I was not going to live through yet another day of what I did yesterday at work.  I slept all day, and my stomach is finally settling. I am not going to take medications that I do not understand all day.

I am also no longer drinking soda (and caffeine). Today was my first day with none. I have had a slight headache, but my stomach was giving me bigger issues, so I didn't notice it. I'm glad I decided to do this. I don't know if I've felt any different yet, but I will, in the end, I know it.

I was really sad because I missed Winter Solstice yesterday, but today I logged onto on a whim, and they just announced they were going to do an online ritual. So I attended it, and I feel better after doing it. My head feels clearer.

My plans for the new year are to get in shape physically, and mentally with my Pagan studies. To feel good, means inside and outside. I look forward to my year of changing.  I hope this is just the start of everything.  Witch School plans to be holding these rituals on every full moon. I really want to attend them.

New things to look forward to.

In Preparation of 2014, 03.

The new year will be here far too quickly. I'm not even sure where 2013 went, let alone the last 3, 5, 10 years.  It's been a blur of too much, not enough, and just living.  It needs to have some sort of middle medium, but I'm not sure how to get to that. It's a slow process of growing as a person.  With work, with friends, with family.  It's all connected to who I am as a person. I am trying to figure out who I am.  I thought I knew, but the more things happen, the less I really realize about myself. I don't even know how to begin to define me. My life has involved the internet since I was 15 years old. I will be 32 in 6 months (how that's possible, I'll never know) and I can't even tell you what my hobbies are.

If you'd asked me that question when I was 15, it would have been an easy answer: webdesign, reading, and writing. I wanted to go into webdesign and/or become a writer, so making fansites and fanfic was all I did in my spare time.  I wouldn't mind getting into webdesign again, but it's so much more complex now.  Who cares about flash (of the non-Barry Allen sort) and php and all those image mapped layouts. I certainly don't. I didn't when it was becoming the fad, nor do I care now, 10 years later.

Now, I haven't HTMLed in years, outside of copy/paste tumblr coding, or italicing words in 500 words or less drabbles. I don't write enough.  I don't write at all anymore. I miss it, but I don't have time for it, not the time a writer should be able to devote to fine-tuning their craft. I might tinker with Arrow fanfic, because ever since Grant Gustin graced our screens as Barry Allen aka The Flash, I haven't been this obsessed in, like, ever.  But even just time to fanfic seems impossible right now.

So with these thoughts, I want to make a list.  A list of things I want to accomplish, things I want to start to learn, things I'd like to brush up on and relearn. I'd like to make an actual life online again.  I want to make a real life finally, too.  I want to make friends, do things, go out, meet someone.  Do all the things I should've been doing doing the last ten years of my life.

As our Raggedy Man regenerates on Christmas day, maybe it's time I do the same thing in real life, too.

Influenster, 02.

This will just be a short blog entry, but I feel like I should talk about it, however brief it might be.  Influenster is a little program my sister told me about.  She said they send you free stuff just for reviewing products.  I was skeptical, because yeah right, what is free in this world?  But it IS!  Everything is completely free and you actually get stuff.  I just qualified for my second box, and this is the first one that is a VoxBox, which means I get multiple items.  The first one I got was for Colgate mouth wash, and my sister got a Palmolive dish soap, and another breakfast yogurt, but we couldn't find a local retail that sold it, so we were unable to actually try it. But they send you this stuff in the mail, and you review and say what you think, and complete other tasks, and you get it.  All for free.  In this day and age, anything free is amazing, because you never know when you'll find that little hidden gem, y'know?  I definitely recommend this site. It works, and there's no hidden scams, and everyone involved is amazingly friendly.
