But like the title says: on the plus side I have gotten some stuff done...so much more to do, but still i have made a dent. I looked in the mirror today and didn't find one thing wrong. I'm excited for Christmas. I have decided until then I will track down and hang out with as many people as possible. I'm lookin up and I'm gonna try to be fearless. I am strong and I am free to go out and do what I please...why would I waste that. So I am turning over a new leaf. I have so much to deal with but I am going to make time for me, I have to or time is just gonna fly by. I want to have memories and fun times, not be bogged down with work all the time. So here's to a breath of fresh, cold air :)

The story that really hit me was this:
To the girl at the gym who said she wouldn't get a prom date because she was too "fat":
My friends and I were lifting weights nearby to try to impress you. Don't ever think that all guys see is your weight. We thought you were gorgeous.
The fact that you will realize that one day GMH.
I have felt over weight most of my life and it has been hard for me to look in the mirror some days. This story meant a lot to me, cuz that means there is hope for me. I will never be a Barbie. I will never be skinny, but I have a heart of gold and an amazing personality. Maybe one day someone will find that attractive enough to over look my waist size and if you are that guy please say something. If you don't we may never know how loved we really are.
With that said this site is amazing and all the stories shared give me hope. Smile! Be hopefully! Share the love!!

I Pick Them Good
I think back on all my heartache,
I wonder what went wrong.
Feeling like a tired verse,
In an outdated song.
I think about their faces,
And how they swept me off my feet.
Yet they all ended up dropping me,
Really hard on cold concrete.
My life has been like a broken record,
Spinning round and round.
I try to pick the guys who are different,
Yet I always feel so bound.
Bound by the laws of attraction I guess,
These feelings deep inside.
These guys seem so perfect,
Yet they have so much that they hide.
They have great personalities,
They know just what to say.
But yet what they have put me through,
Would make any girl run away.
There seems to be a pattern,
Though I would hate to admit.
The guys I end up falling for,
Hurt me bit by bit.
It hurts so much,
Cuz I love them so.
But yet they don't feel the same,
Because they let me go.
I guess I should've seen it coming,
Like any girl would.
But what can I say,
I pick them good.

TIP: At Walmart.com you can make your own photo blanket that you can decorate with a collage of photos. It isn't really cheap, but I was assured that $85 blanket is doable by my mother as an overall Christmas gift from our family. It is just personal enough that you can't really go wrong.
In the meantime I am trying to figure out what to get some of my friends for Christmas gifts so if you have any kewl inexpensive ideas leave me a comment!
I have also been working on my reading. I have so many children's books to read for my Intro to Children's Literature class I don't know where to start. Most are not very long, but I still have a lot of other things to do such as cleaning my house for Christmas and shopping. I am not expecting too many gifts this Christmas because I got many of my gifts early. My GPS was probably my most wanted and needed gift so I can find my way places without freaking out and getting lost. Traveling this summer is finally doable!!!
Check out my new page at the top: About Me...you might learn something about me you don't already know :)

- Stay on Course, If you are going to a store for one sale item, just get that item!
- If you see something you like, leave it... and if you can't get you mind off it the next day go buy it!
- Don't go crazy buying for others. Try and make a list or budget how much you want to spend on people. I personally like fun/funny gifts because it gives you a gift in return, a smile or laugh from that person.
- Never look down on homemade gifts. Taking time out of your busy life to knit a scarf, draw a picture, or make a Cd for someone is unique and heartfelt.
- When all else fails gift cards are great!
I know I personally want to go back out and buy a sweater I can't get out of my head. It is something I need right now since the first snow hit the other day. I personally hate the cold and for that reason I am not a fan of snow, but I do admire the beauty. There is something about this time of year that makes me like the snow and the lights, especially when we put up the Christmas Tree. Call it the Merry disease, but I catch it every year. I love baking cookies and cakes till I bleed sugar. I think a huge problem is that people get so caught up with making things perfect that they forget what Christmas is about. I know my family is guilty of that, but stress overwhelms people.
Kewl Fact: I suggest buying things online...I know many people do, but if you do research and get coupons often prices can be cheaper. Remember though sometimes it can be more with shipping and haddling so do research. I might have gotten some of my books cheaper if I just went to the book store, because I had $3.99 shipping charge.
Another Note: I have added a banner to a new site dedicated to fashion called Lookville. Check it out!!!
