John bought this book for me. I read it last week when I was in Lumberton with Daddy Jack in the hospital. It really was a great distraction. Daddy Jack is home and doing better now. This book was hilarious. I'm a huge Tina Fey fan. 30 Rock is my favorite! She makes me proud to be a woman. This book covers it all. READ IT. It'll take no time and every bit of it is funny and smart and like I said it makes you proud to be a woman instead of a man (because we're better), unless you are a man and then I still recommend it. If you're like one of those jerks who doesn't believe a woman can be funny: first of all, YOU ARE WRONG, and second of all, read this book so Tina Fey can tell you why you're wrong and at the exact same time prove to you how funny ladies like her really are!

I miss bf tonight! He's off doing silly stuff without me which always makes me jealous. Oh, well. I do have good news via twitter. My brother finally matted the swanky screen-printed DMB poster bf got me for Christmas. Pirate purple mat board is the coolest! After everything this ended up being a pretty expensive little piece of art. I can't wait to put it up on the fireplace mantel of my new apartment. Look how pretty...

I've felt this pull to simplify and streamline lately. I'm moving in July and even though it sounds far off it really is not! I want to utilize the things I have and buy nothing. I want to eat less so I can fit into the smaller clothes of past summers instead of buying new bigger ones. I want to use the greenway and parkway to exercise on instead of joining a gym in the middle of summer (I think when it gets cold the gym would be a great idea!). I want to read and learn new things instead of buying things to entertain me. I want to save as much money as possible. I want to get rid of the things I do not need in order to make room for the possessions I really enjoy ad use. I need to remember what I've got. This is a weird example but in the last couple of days I've found four sticks of deodorant sitting around my apartment. Why!? I don't unpack at the end of a trip. The deodorant stays in my duffel bag and I buy another one because I "can't find it." I need to take inventory of the material possessions and all the stuff you can't see. The stuff that determines who I am (good and bad), the stuff I carry around with me everyday. I'm ranting. I know this. I think success is determined at your core, in your home. How I handle everything can be seen as I handle my home. I'm not doing well in that respect--I'll be honest. I can be wasteful and I don't want to be. My life is cluttered. In order not to waste space, I'm going to donate all my crappy looking t-shirts and organize my kitchen. I want everything organized before I move out. All this stuff is not coming with me to the new place!
I want to be a combination of this...
You get the idea.
