6000 emails

I am trying to dejunk my life. I need to work on my bedroom. Instead I dejunked my e-mail accounts. Today I deleted over 6,000 emails from my yahoo account alone. The oldest e-mail I deleted was from the year 2000. I kept 366 e-mails. That is 366 e-mails that deemed worthy of living in my inbox for a little bit longer. I need to learn to delete e-mails when I get them. Though warm fuzzies to my friends because prior to today I had kept just about every e-mail you had ever sent me. Now that is true love.

Small things make all the difference

I just got off the phone with one of my best friends. We talked for 2 and 1/2 hours. As always, it was great. She lives on the other side of the country from me, so I only see her maybe once a year. Thank goodness for the phone cuz I would be so lost without being able to talk to her. Actually talk, almost as good as if we didn't live on opposite sides of the nation.

Since I have been riding my bike more, one of my best friends has been giving me and my bike rides home when it is super late or super dark or when I am super tired. I don't even have to ask, he just does it. He puts his bike rack on his car, loads my bike up for me, takes me home, takes my bike off the rack, and even sometimes walks my bike into my garage! I just am amazed at how nice he is to me and I think how lucky am I to have someone in my life who will do something like this for me. It makes my day. Every time.

One of my friends from work brought Special K bars to work today that were 'me' friendly. No dairy. Yesterday we were talking about how I have never tasted these Special K bars that one of the nurses brings in because of my allergies and so they went home and made some that I could have. Today I tasted my first Special K bar, made special just for me! And they were so good!! So nice!!! It is not the easiest thing in the world to make food that I can eat and I am always so impressed that people will put that much work into making sure that I can eat something!

Noni is 10 today. For all of those who know who Noni is, you know the craziness of that. Little Noni is 10. Craziness.

Studying my brains out

Tomorrow is my first test for this semester. I am very nervous and so I am studying like a mad man. Interestingly enough, I am kind of enjoying it. Though tomorrow I will be cranky and tired and I will probably cry, which is what I usually do when I am cranky and tired. It is going to be a long night and a long day tomorrow. What I have learned from this first test...I need to study more. A lot more. I am going to become a study addict. Thank goodness I kinda like it. Kinda.

Eyebrow massacre

Well, ladies and gentlemen...I finally did it. Really, I knew this day would come. Today, I destroyed my eyebrows. Luckily I still have two but they are now shorter and much farther apart. It makes my forehead look extra huge. I was trying to be fancy and shape them. Didn't work. For those of you who live far away, I will be fair and say that it really isn't that bad. In fact, if I just wear my glasses, I don't think you can tell. And for those of you who live close, if you can tell even with my glasses on, please don't tell me.

I did this fantastic waxing job because I got all inspired to have glamorous was either that or botox. I have recently decided that I would look better if my eyebrows would just go up a tiny bit more in the center. Botox would be a quick fix. But so would just going back to the salon to rip my eyebrows into submission. No worries people, I won't actually get least not until I turn 31....

Anywhos- on the topic of my glamorous ideas, I have not had any others. Since school started, I have turned into a blob. This is not good. Last school year I turned into a blog and gained 20 pounds in one semester. Gross. I have stopped riding my bike. I have stopped eating oatmeal for breakfast, instead just eating nothing or sometimes cake for breakfast. I have not flossed my teeth. One of my friends even gave me steel cut oats to try...have not even opened the box. Poop. Tomorrow I am going to have steel cut oatmeal for breakfast. Tomorrow I will go running. Reality? Tomorrow I will at least try not to eat cake for breakfast.
