AC is working again.

Amazing how we make all sorts of judgements about people. Case in point: guy brings his 3 kids to the pool. He has a couple tattoos and long chin-hair (Does that have a different name?). Super cool playing with his kids. I was trying to fill in the blanks in my mind like where's the mom, is he divorced (he mentioned they had to go when Grandma said the pizza was done), etc.

I still strongly dislike my chest. Probably not enough to ever have surgery (would do something about the sag, not a reduction).

One of my friends doesn't know what internet acronyms and expressions like brb or FAIL mean, but then types like a 13-year-old. "what're u doin' 2day?" Dude, it takes more effort to type incorrectly. I guess I should give her credit for using an apostrophe correctly.

Time to start using a food journal again.

I've been going to Starbucks like it's going out of style.

What's with that expression? It doesn't make sense. Or is it an idion, in which case it isn't supposed to be taken literally?

I made delicious hummus last night. I want some just because it tastes good, not because I'm hungry.

Bought a ton of baking supplies. Might bake with Michelle on Sunday. Or watch World Cup. Or both.

I tend to be really attentive to lyrics, except with the free iTunes songs I get. Heard the Civil Twilight song I got last October on the alternative station this week. Twice, actually. I realized I have no idea what most of the lyrics are, even though it's played 35 times.

ETA: the above song played on shuffle like 10 minutes after I wrote that, and I still didn't listen to the lyrics.

My mommy and sister are gone back home. I'm glad they came, even though it seemed to go quickly. Well, 4 days is pretty fast. We went to the Grand Canyon via the scenic route, got me a new bookshelf, and ate a ton. I should write more here, but I'm feeling lazy. :)

Finished watching Bleak House. I like it. Maybe not enough to watch it again, but I liked it. Well, I take that back. I'm sure I'll watch parts of it here and again. One character's voice, not face, was so familiar, I had to pause it to check imdb. Mrs. Rouncewell on BH turned out to be the gypsy on Jane Eyre. Ah hah! I knew it was somebody I should know!

Under the cut is what my bedroom currently looks like. I need some ideas on what to do with the blue wall. I've thought about black and white prints, either 1-2 big ones or a collage of different sizes. The wall has angled sides, if you can't tell from the picture.

Good news: I finally put all my clothes away, minus the stuff in the washer/dryer right now.

Not so good news: Barely got any grading done today.

More good news: going to friends house for dinner, might do some grading there.

More not so good: apartment is still a mess.

Additional more good news: I don't care about the mess.

I am ever so slowly getting closer to this, my dream room. Blue wall, some black and white pictures, white sheets, check. My carpet won't be replaced by hardwood floors, but that's ok. I want my bed! The delivery company should call me any day now, and they better call soon as I only have one more week of summer break. I still need a new bedspread, but matching the blue paint is proving quite tricky.

I need to make a budget. Yes, I say this often, but I really need to do it. I should also start a savings account, like the "Keep the Change" ones BofA has. It's so easy to spend small amounts all over but then when I want to make a big purchase, I can't bring myself to do it.

Dinner tonight with some girls from the community group. I hope I'm not the only person to show up. I really want to meet more people from Kairos and get more involved.

Feeling random and procrastinating as usual. :D

If I don't actually write myself a to do list, I'm never going to get anything done. Hmm, I'll write on the back of this receipt.

Yay list written! Now, to actually do the things on it...

It's 110 degrees out. o_O

I went to Kohl's today, where for once I was actually quite impressed with the selection. After looking through clothes, swim suits, picture frames, and linens, I left empty-handed. Now that I've got my blue wall, my bedding choices are severely limited. White sheets are not a problem, but I need a duvet or comforter that will go with it. Now, in addition to being picky, I have to keep the blue in mind when choosing a bedspread. I'll order my canopy bed when I'm in CA in a few days, and eventually I'll replace my grandmother's dresser with something darker to match the bed.

I'm having similar issues as [livejournal.com profile] npicklegrl when it comes to decorating. Trying to make this place into an adult space, as opposed to a hodgepodge of old furniture and knicknacks, is challenging. Part of my problem is I have one long room that is technically a dining room and living room. The dining room is my "office" and it has oak furniture and a big plastic storage container. The frame of my chair from Ikea is also oak, because it matched what I had when I moved in here. My tv stand and cd rack are dark wood, and my couch and chair are beige and tan. My sister and I contemplated painting a red accent wall in the living room, but decided to just stick with painting the bedroom for now. Instead, I'm looking for a framed picture with some dark red in it to go above the couch. Yet again, I'm picky. Picky and cheap :)
