...told you so.
January 26, 2005

It feels like something has clicked. I don’t know if it’s just a part of “growing up” or what, but I seem to have the strength now to do things (ie. Keeping promises to myself) that I really haven’t been able to do before. I am more organized, and suddenly have the tendency to make plans ahead of time, instead of being a spur-of-the-moment type of person.

The resolutions I made earlier in the month are keeping me honest: I have been flossing every day, brushing with baking soda (whitening action!), and have been going to the gym regularly. I am saving money better, and getting things done for the wedding. I have been studying up on my French skillz (of which there are few), and have been pretty much the premier organizer for the trip to France.

25 seems to be the age where everything is coming together, which is a really awesome feeling. The B and I are making plans for the future. Not just for the year ahead of us, but for the rest of our lives. It just really feels good.

I am, however, still really bad at writing thank-you cards. We’ll see how that works once the wedding is over.

some other stuff
January 13, 2005

It seems I constantly have something huge up my sleeve. Not only am I planning my wedding (August - eep!), but my car is broken, and I'm leaving for France in a month. On an aside, I also happened to figure out how to bite one of the underside danglies of my tongue yesterday while eating lunch. This is clearly a Guinness Book of World Records feat, as I don't know anyone else that's actually able to do this. My tongue is hurting quite a bit still.

So, the wedding? it?' just now getting planned, even though it's only 7 months away. I guess I'm kind of worked up about it, as I tend to get bursts of nervous energy whenever thinking about anything like catering, site setup, dresses, or bridesmaids. Not only am I doing most of the planning and setup myself, but the B is out of town currently - he'll be back for 2 weeks at the end of the month, then he's off again for another 5 weeks. There's a lot to do in those 2 weeks (order invitations, get the "save the date" cards sent off, try on dresses, etc.), so I?m sure that updating this site will be the furthest from my top priority. Blame it on being a bridezilla.

Since I'm planning on getting married in August, and I'm about 5 pounds heavier than I was in November, I?'e been spending most of my free time exercising at home and at the gym. I've also put myself on a strict diet that I?ve been extreme about sticking to. I guess it's all rather silly. I feel strange to be working so hard on losing weight now that I actually have a real goal in mind. I also don't want to do this the wrong way. I've been catching myself thinking badly about food in general, which is no way to think. And I don't want to start thinking about "once I get to ***lbs, I can do this and that." I just don't want to get obsessive. Then again, if I'm thinking about this right now, I guess it means that I'm not. So, moot point.

Some pictures from OZ! We just got these developed, and some of them turned out rather well:

the B, his mom, and me coral more coral me, swimming. ignore the thighs. anenamenames NOW! even MORE coral! coral with burrowing clam mouths (all i wanted to do was poke them, and i refrained).

So, yeah... it's the new year. Happy 2005, everyone who cares.

Also, lack in posting: due to cleaning my house furiously (with one break to go skiing last Wednesday, last year) for the housewarming party which occured on the 1st. Was lovely, and a good time was had by all.

As promised, I received no KitchenAid mixer over the holidays. I did receive a bunch of other cool stuff, the best of which was probably from the Boy and the friends (was going to say "posse", but I'm just really not liking that word at all). So, yeah, thanks.

And, of course, here's the list:

The Best of 2004(in no particular order):
Garden State (soundtrack and movie)
Moving to the best apartment ever
Finally getting a haircut
Purchasing tickets for France (1 month, 11days to go)
New friends
Old friends
Not getting pregnant (like there was ever a chance of that - but hey, got to be grateful for that)
Remembering how to cross-country ski - kind of
Being real friends with girls again
Jorb changes
Yeah, I know - boring as fuck, eh. Well, I've been spending so much time working on other web-related stuff that I can't put on here that my energy is pretty sapped by the time I get around to the personal site. Maybe it'll get better now that 2004 is over. For no particular reason. Sharing time over. See you next week.
