Plant Journal v 1.1 [26 Apr 2010|12:03am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Welcome to Spring!!!

Well... I have gotten into the planting fever. Normally I get this way every year, but this year it has been worse!!! I've decided to create a plant journal to document my forays into planting. We shall see what happens.....

1.) Butterfly/Hummingbird garden.

So.... at my old job, we did a LOT of talking about ways children can get involved in nature and help the environment. One thing we pushed was making gardens, especially butterfly gardens. A kid would tell me their favorite animal was a butterfly so I would tell them to go to the library, get a book about butterfly gardens, and plant one. Well, I told these kids all this advice, so I decided to do it myself!!!

Big mistake. Do you realize just how much work a butterfly garden is??? I've confused thousands and thousands of kids who are at home crying right now because I sent them on an impossible quest of building a butterfly garden. There are these flowers, and those flowers, and you have to plant these for larval food, and these for regular food, they also need these trees, and these places to hide. Gaaaaah!!!

The majority of plants that butterflies like are either a.) 6-12 feet tall b.) Trees or c.) look like weeds. Well, I did my research and finally found some plants that I thought were pretty and weren't huge. So, armed with knowledge, I went shopping.

And failed. I either couldn't find the plants I wanted, or I found them and didn't like them anymore. What can I say, I'm indecisive. Plus, those things are expensive! However, I did come home with some plants. After hours of looking, I finally just got flowers that had pretty pictures and mentioned "Attracts butterflies!!!" on the label. I might not get any butterflies, but they look pretty!!

So in this garden, I have 3 Frosty Flame Dianthus, 2 Shasta Daisies (Leucanthemums), and 1 Mrs. Bradshaw Geum. They're in a sunny spot, though because of the shadow of the shed, I'm a little nervous about Mrs. Bradshaw getting enough sun. But, we'll see how it goes.

Anyway... If you know me, then you know it's time for..... PICTURES!!!!

2.) Kirsten's Garden

Well.... I kept talking about my garden, and what I wanted to plant and such, and Kirsten felt left out. Especially when I told her that this was my baby and she was not going to be involved in it. So, mom gave her the section by my window. Of course, by doing this, Kirsten ripped out all the chives I planted last year.... but oh well. She has 3 bleeding hearts (2 white and 1 pink) and 2 pink dianthus.

She planted the white bleeding heart on the left, and the pink bleeding heart in the middle. However Kirsten is... not an outdoor person..... She got afraid of the wasps and left. So I planted the bleeding heart on the right and the dianthus on the left. I got busy with the veggie garden though, so mom planted the dianthus on the right once she got home.

Bleeding Hearts- Look at that cute little guy that decided to hang out on the left heart!

3.) Vegetable Garden

This garden has its own issues. In the first place, Ed said "no, we are not planting a garden this year." However, anyone that knows Ed knows that this means yes, we are planting one. I mean, come on, he says that every single year, and yet every year there he is tilling it up and planting more seeds. It's a tradition. We normally have "Ed's Super Secret Supreme Dirt Fertilizer (tm)" buried, but we don't this year so I'm not sure how the crops are going to turn out. They chose what to plant- I just planted. I'm not picky, I just like gardening :) They chose strawberries (25), Green Bell Peppers (2), Tomatoes (2), and Peaches & Cream Corn (2 scoops...ended up being around 7 rows, 13 in each... more on this later). Then, since Kirsten doesn't like being left out, she chose Cucumbers, which came in packs of three, so we also have 3 cucumbers.

So here's the thing.... Despite how much I love it, I'm new to this whole "gardening" thing. In other words.... I don't know what the hell I'm doing. So, before I planted the crops, I looked online and figured out things as best as possible. Strawberries supposedly spread, so they need room. And they mentioned something about mounding, or hills... I dunno. When we got them, they came in packs of 25, and they're basically just sticks with roots coming out of them. I tried to make 5 rows of 5... but the space we had wouldn't allow it. So now I have 3 rows of 6 and 1 row of 7. I may have screwed up the entire thing though. Cuz, it took a long time to plant because Kirsten left me after planting 5 of the 25. And it was hot and sunny. And stupid me didn't think to cover up the unplanted "sticks" So now I'm afraid the roots dried out and killed them before they got into the ground. So now we'll have to see if they come up later :)

Strawberry Fields Forever

The cucumbers, green peppers, and tomatoes were pretty standard. Just dug holes and stuck them in. We normally have more tomatoes than what we know what to do with. So hopefully this year with only 2, it will be a bit more manageable.

Cucumber, Pepper, Tomato Field


Green Pepper


Corn. Oh Corn. Out of everything, the most drama. So let me say- I have no clue how to plant corn. At all. And the corn comes in a bag with no directions, just the kernels. So.... yeah. I did a search online and everything I found contradicted each other. I finally settled on a page that mentioned Peaches & Cream by name. They said to plant them in rows 2-3 feet apart and each one to be spaced 4-6 inches apart.  So, I got out my yardstick and measured out 30 inches exactly and made 7 rows.  Then, when planting each row, I measured out 5 inches.  Finally, I would dig a little hole with my hands, drop in 2 seeds, then place the yardstick right in next to the seeds.  I would then place soil over the seeds until they reached 1 inch, to 1.5 inches on the yardstick, then pull the yardstick out and slightly covered the seeds.  So, overall, I ended up with 7 rows, with 13 plants in each row.  HOWEVER, when my mom came home, she was not pleased.  She said the corn rows needed to be 15 inches apart.  We have agreed to disagree.... For now.

However, I will admit my mistake for the next portion.  Like I said, I do not know how to plant corn.  So, stupid me, decided that in order for me to be able to see the rows, I would mound them.  And the mounds got a little bigger than I thought they would.  PLUS, I mean, I live right next to a corn field, I should know the corn's not mounded!  But, I had a stupid moment.  So.... now our corn is on mounds, which it's not supposed to be.  So we may, or may not get corn this year.  Only time will tell.

At least the rows are pretty.....

You can't see it now, but there's corn here, I promise!

4.) House Border Garden

So this is mom's. Sort of. We have flowers that border our house. We started with rose bushes. And despite the many, many....MANY times that Ed has stepped on them, dropped things on them, chopped them off.... they still survived. Then, one year, we made the awful mistake of buying one of those wildflower mixes (Just spread over the ground and they will grow!) Big mistake They grew alright. Sadly, the majority of them weren't flowering types, just ferny weedy stuff. Especially the second year- by that point there were barely any flowers just green stuff. We till up the soil every year, pick the weeds, put down new potting soil..... and still, even this year, 5 years after we first planted the stuff, we still have these weedy ferny stuff popping up. They're prairie wildflowers, which means they have an extensive root system (fun fact-- native IL plants... and really, any native flowers from the prairie states have a really deep and extensive root system. The reason? Back before human civilization, lightning would strike in the prairie and cause massive fires. So the plants would burn up. However, since they're based on a root system, the roots would be safe in the cool soil. So they plants would be able to just re-grow, even after the tops were burned down. In fact, the fires were healthy for them because the ashes contained nutrients to help them grow stronger than before. When humans came along, we stopped these burnings, and now, whenever a wild fire comes along, we quickly put it out. This is actually very bad for the eco-system because it allows invasive species-- species that don't belong in a certain area-- to thrive and take over our native plants. So now that we know better, we prescribe controlled burns- foreign plant species do not have the deep root system that our native plants do, so they cannot regrow after being burned. Bye bye invasive species, hello native prairie plants :) ) Anyway, back to the side garden. Now, instead of the wildflowers, we have lilies. And we also somehow have tulips though nobody remembers planting them. We believe they may have been planted along with the rose bushes when we first started this area. The lilies have done great- we planted them a 3 years ago, and they've been coming back and spreading rapidly. Which is what mom wanted- a plant that she can plant once and then never have to touch it again. Mom has a problem- any plant she touches dies. We were picking out flowers for this year's garden and an old lady told mom it's because she's mean to the flowers and needs to talk nice to them. I think they die because they are committing suicide before mom can get it in her head to "help" them. She once killed one of those air fern things- you know, those plants that need no watering or help because they soak up moisture from the air? Yeah, it died. Finally, we also have some bushes at the front of the house. These have been here for as long as I can remember- at least from the time we turned our house from poop color to a pretty blue. I'm not sure what type they are- mom says some of them are azaleas. Perhaps some of you fine readers can look at them and let me know :)

Side Garden



Rose Bushes

This rose bush EXPLODED once my mom got rid of the rattlesnake master, chives, and basil that were planted there.  That long branch on the right was actually already trimmed before I took this photo.

Front garden.  The two closest to the stairs are the azaleas (so mom says) but the one on the corner of the house is the unknown.

Back garden... needs weeding.... desperately.

5.) Misc. Gardening

Finally, last, but not least, we have miscellaneous gardening. These are just random other plants that are growing nearby. I probably won't give updates on these quite as much, but I might pop in every once in awhile to showcase some of them.

First up is my neighbor's vegetable garden. My neighbor is an avid gardener. As in, he gets rare and exotic plants and grows them. And he's good at it. He puts my measly flowers to shame. As of right now, I don't know what he's growing, so it'll be a guessing game for us as the season goes on.

Master Veggie Garden

Next, we have these beautiful yellow flowers. Have no clue what they are They're called Tansy Ragwort- a noxious weed considered poisonous to livestock, but they pop up around out yard. I suspect it's from that wildflower mix I mentioned earlier. My mom and step-dad have a tendency to pull these out when they see them, so for this flower's challenge, we are going to see just how long these will continue growing. Also, a secondary challenge is to find out what kind of flowers these are!!

Don't they just make you so happy?

So, that's it.  We shall see how this experiment goes!!  Happy Gardening to all of you!!!  Would love to hear some of your feedback in the comments!

Why I will never be President of the USA [31 Aug 2008|02:03pm]
[ mood | pleased ]

There are many reasons I will never be the president of the United States of America. But here are just a few of the more....unique.... reasons.

1.) Foreign Policy

The big concern nowadays is about the war in Iraq and in other middle eastern countries. Now, I already have opinions on this, but for now, let's just focus on people fighting in the middle east. Or just focus on terrorist groups in the middle east. I would combat this by giving everyone an air conditioner. Nobody wants to fight when it's hot outside. Especially since you have to wear all those warm suits and carry around weapons. But when it's already hot inside, you don't really notice the temperature outside as much. So we introduce everyone to fresh, crisp, cold air conditioned air. Heck, we'll even throw in some humidifiers to be nice. Maybe a candle or two for smell. Suddenly, everyone is staying at home in their homes enjoying the air. Osama Bin Laden calls a group meeting, and you turn to your wife and say "Eh, I don't think I'm going out tonight Jan. Too hot. especially all crowded around in that little cave. Let's just stay in and order pizza." Walla!! Terrorist crisis solved.

And, in order for this to be accomplished, America becomes number one in the "manufacture of air conditioner" business. We work so that we have the best air conditioners in the world and everyone wants our stuff. Thus, other countries are buying our product and thus we are increasing our economy and creating more jobs for us American people. Also, it's going to take energy for these air conditioners to run over there. Lots of energy since it will be combating a higher heat. Which means in order for their everyday, run of the mill citizens, the Oil Countries have to sell their oil for less so that their own citizens can afford to buy it, and thus, high gas prices are also solved!

2.) Weather

Hurricanes are accomplished because of warm sea water and calm jet streams. Now, we can't do anything about the water because unlike Futurama, we don't have humongous ice cubes and we really don't want to flood anybody by increasing water supply. However, as President, I would see to it that we did something about the air. Hurricane's need a calm, non-turbulent jet stream, right? So we create and build the worlds largest, strongest fan. Large enough that it will reach up to the jet stream. Then, whenever a hurricane comes, we turn on the fan and thus, create a lot of wind and a very turbulent jet stream that breaks up the hurricane. Viola! No more hurricanes and lots more gumbo. Of course, we have to make sure the fan points upwards so as not to blow away houses, but we'll let the engineers work on that.

3.) Science

As president, and a Biological Science Major, science is very important to me. We would have all sorts of programs going out and be the most scientific country in the world. But not just in the medical fields and all that stuff that's important. No, I'm talking about the COOL stuff, like robots and animals. I would build the world's LARGEST zoo right by the white house and put in every single animal. People would spend days just coming and watching and studying animals and their behaviors. And it would be open 24/7. You think finding a more efficient way of swapping flies was a crazy idea? Just wait till you see what kind of crazy animal stuff we study in my administration.

For now, that is all. But expect this entry to be updated as more of my presidential ideas are formed!!!

Writer's Block: Anthropomorphic buddies [18 May 2008|07:40pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

Have you ever named or befriended an inanimate object? What did you call it?

A couple times. I have this snow bear that I call "Snowy". I've had him since Christmas of 1994... fell in love with him at first site, but could have SWORN that he was for my cousin Tracy. So I was ecstatic when I discovered that he was for me. He's been with me through a lot of stuff, and it's a good thing he can't really talk because I tell him all my secrets. I'm a little old for stuffed bears.... but he's been a big part of my life, I can't imagine ever getting rid of/losing him.

Although... I must admit.... I tend to name almost anything I own. For example, in high school, I had "Bindy"..... my 3-Ring binder.

Hypocrisy [31 Mar 2008|10:21pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

So, I've come to a revelation. I am not comfortable with underage drinking. Which, kind of makes me a hypocrite. I started drinking while underage, so who is it for me to say others can't do it? The thing is, I've been in situations where people drink underage, and I don't have a problem with it. I've been in situations where there's been a big group of people drinking, and a lot of them are underage, and I don't have a problem with it.

What I do have a problem is when underage people drink in public. And I'm not talking bout in someone's apartment or whatever, because again, I've been there, done that, seen others do it, and not had a problem. What I mean, is out in public, like at a restaurant. A group of people went out to a restaurant (I wasn't there). They ended up not being carded (despite being at the age they should have been). While the majority of them were 21, one was not. She ended up getting a strawberry daiquiri. When I was told the story, I kinda frowned on it, but didn't say much, cause again, I drank illegally, who is it for me to say it's wrong? And since I wasn't there, I really didn't have too strong of an opinion, just an "oh, that's cool" type of thing. Well, the following weekend, we went on that same kind of trip, only this time I was there. The first night we went to an Irish pub and the group of us ordered drinks. The one under 21 year old again debated about ordering a drink, but in the end decided against it and told the waitress she wasn't drinking when asked for her id (and ordered a water.) Well, through a series of events, one of the girls didn't like her mudslide, so the under 21 year old shared it with one of the other girls (above 21). That's when I got my first inkling of discomfort. It's just, I dunno. That's blatantly breaking the law, and while I know breaking the law is breaking the law no matter what the circumstance is, for some reason, that just kind of made me uncomfortable. The next night, we went out to eat at a fancy restaurant. We all ordered our drinks (the under 21 year old got a creme drink type of thing, not alcoholic). When the waitress didn't card us (what is it with St. Louis and not carding obviously 21 year olds?) she again debated about ordering something alcoholic. That's when I got really uncomfortable. I mean... I dunno. I shouldn't feel this way, because it makes me a huge hypocrite to say it's okay to underage drink in some places, but not others. I do know that I wasn't the only one uncomfortable, cause the guy with us was also showing some concerns about her doing it. She ended up not getting a drink, but she did try some of our strawberry daiquiris and caramel-tinis.

So... I'm a hypocrite. Oh well. I guess being over 21 now has made me view the law a little differently, now that I'm on the "okay" side of it :P

Basketball [18 Mar 2008|06:45pm]
[ mood | okay ]

I love basketball. It's probably my second favorite sport. I played it in school from 6th grade thru 9th grade, went to all home high school basketball games from junior high all the way through high school (playing in pep band, but it still counts), and did stats senior year (which meant I went to EVERY game, not just home... and yes, still did pep band). Although not so much anymore, I used to be a fan of the NBA (Bulls, of course.) I remember one time, I must have been in about 2nd, 3rd grade, I was at summer scope, and during lunch, my group (particularly the boys) was talking about the team. They were trying to name all the players on the team, but only getting the famous ones... i.e, Jordan. So I spoke up and was able to name every player on the team w/o pause. Needless to say, they all stared at me with mouths open. Great fun :P

In college, I've come to love it more. Obsessed even. There's just something about being in there in that atmosphere, rooting for your school, getting involved. It's probably my favorite part of college. Men and Women. Both have different atmospheres, but both are great in their own way. It completely dumbfounds me that there are people here at my school that don't go to basketball games, or heck, any sport. Sports here at ISU have been ingrained in me so much that I could NOT imagine college without it. How in the WORLD do people survive NOT going to a couple games each week?

Anyway, both our teams had a WONDERFUL season this year. Our boys were phenomenal. We beat Southern AT Southern! It's the first time they've been beaten at home in about 7 seasons. We also ended up sweeping them. We also beat Bradley for the first time in forever. In fact, none of the players on our team had ever beaten Bradley before. We did wonderful in the final tournament.... but wee ended up failing miserably against Drake. I loathe Drake, but they're just having one of those years where everything seems to be going good for them. Our girls are just wonderful. They lost it a bit at the end of the season, but ended up first in the MVC regular season. Then... THEY WON THE MVC TOURNAMENT! First time in 10 years. It was so amazing being there, and I had sooo much fun at the tournament. The trumpets got to be in the front row, which was amazing. I'm pretty sure I screamed my throat raw during that last game. They scared me during their first match up, but they managed to pull away during the second half and got the win.

Our women got the automatic bid to the NCAA. We were seeded 13th, which kinda sucks because we were expecting to be seeded 10-12, but 13th's not too bad :) We play #4 Oklahoma over in West Lafayette Indiana on Sunday at 11am (noon indiana time). Even though Oklahoma's #4, it will still be a good game and I am confident we can pull off the win. The pep band was hoping to go to California or New Mexico....but we got stuck in Indiana, which is only 2.5 hours away. It's not going to be as fun as the MVC because there will be no hotel stay, but it will still be fun to see our girls play.

Our boys got screwed. We have been doing wonderful this entire season, yet, because of ONE game, we don't get into the NCAA. We have a better RPI and record than Kentucky and others, yet they get in and we don't, just because they have name recognition. 18-14 record compared to our 24-9. RPI in the 30s. Seriously. If they had chosen the teams based on record alone and not name recognition, we would have been chosen over them. We'll show them next year, but it's just sad that our team that has done so much this year won't be able to be there.

On the other hand though, we were chosen as the #2 seed in the NIT tournament. This might actually be a good thing for them. While being in the NCAA would be amazing, I must admit... we probably would not have been able to go far. We're good...but not that good. NIT however, I truly believe we have a HUGE chance of winning it. At LEAST making final 4. So, perhaps it is better to end our wonderful season with a wonderful tournament championship (and a trip to New York) rather than end our wonderful season with such a horrible, 30 pt loss to Drake, then a loss first round in NCAA. It still stings though. We should have been there.

Oh well. As a Cub fan, I will just repeat my beloved mantra-- Just wait till next year.

I'm back from the tournament down in St. Louis :) It was fun, but it has COMPLETELY wiped me out. Gosh, I could probably sleep for 24 hours and be happy.

There's a lot of things I wanna write/rant/contemplate about, but I'm too tired right now. A bunch of little topics, so hopefully I'll remember them tomorrow :) Or the day after. Sometime. I'm pretty busy right now and for the next couple weeks, which really sucks planning wise. But at least I have my internet, which will have to do for now. :)

It's weird how fast feelings/emotions can change. I went from having a really bad night, to a pretty bad morning, to a mediocre day, to an alright day, to a good evening, to a really good evening. I should be given an award or something.

Welp. Looks like I'm back into my old habits of lying to everyone about me actually updating. It's not that I want to. It's just that I really have nothing to talk about.

Break is relaxing. This break is completely different from last year's spring break, but it's good in its own way. I wouldn't complain if they would magically give us another week :P

Anyway... I'm outtie. Talk to ya'll later!

(Hey... as a sidenote, what's up with this 3.46 gas? I'm basically trapped in my house right now because I can't afford to fill up my empty gas tank. It's gone down to 3.38 today, but I'm still hoping that it'll go down even more. Doesn't matter too much, cause I'm going to have to fill up tomorrow evening no matter what the cost so I can make it back home. I'm thinking of making a car boycott and just riding busses everywhere or walking. Cept that it's really cold outside.)

Entries [04 Mar 2008|08:20pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

So I've decided to update this thing more often. But then the question arose, just what do I talk about? Some people use their blogs to comment on politics, environment, society, and other news items. However, I really don't have strong enough opinions to do that. I follow the philosophy of "How's it hurting you?" If it's not hurting you, why should you get so worked up about it? I just have a hard time choosing sides and I tend to believe in bits of both of them, thus, I lie somewhere in the middle. And part of me doesn't feel like putting my ideas out there because I don't feel like defending them. I have opinions, but when people come at me with differing opinions looking for a fight, I just don't feel like it, or feel that I don't know enough to defend myself.

In the past, I used this as a spot to recap my day, telling almost every minute of my life. This led to long entries though, and, truthfully, dull and boring entries that no one cares about. Who cares what happened to me at lunch? Am I arrogant enough to believe people really want to read about how my class went? Who wants to waste their time reading about a normal everyday life, when most likely, they are reading blogs to try and escape their own life.

What also happens when I post on here, I tend to get emo. I start to ramble about emotions and feelings and such. No one wants to here a person whine. People don't want to hear it in real life, why do they want to sit here and waste their time voluntarily reading it? So I'm lonely at times. Who cares? Does someone really need to know that? Read 5 paragraphs about how life used to be? What I wish it was? No. It's hard for me, because I tend to be like that when I write without typing. These are the posts that I write, then the next day regret and either hope no one reads it, lock it to friends only, or delete it.

And so, I still have no clue what this will turn out to be. Perhaps I will use it as a way to document my days--- not for others to read, but for me to come back to years from now and see how I used to be. You'll see the decision in the coming days.

Life [03 Mar 2008|07:52am]
[ mood | happy ]

Life is going really good right now.

Life is always about change. And while at first we get scared, apprehensive, and resist, in the end, that change can bring about some of the greatest things in life.

If 4 years ago, someone had asked me "Where do you think you'll be in 4 years", I would answer "In college, working towards graduating with a Biology degree." Which is exactly where I am today. But what I could have never told you is my state of mind, emotions, and just general standing in life. I could never tell the growing I've done, the experiences I've had, and most importantly, the friends I've made along the way.

2 years of health issues [18 Sep 2007|03:48pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

2 years ago, in the summer of 2005, my Grandpa Lee died from a heart attack and complications arising from that.

My Grandma Flo has been in and out of the hospital several times these past 2 years for various respiratory things.

In early 2006, my Grandma Joy was diagnosed with COPD. She's going into the hospital in 2 weeks for more treatment for it.

November last year my Grandma Sharon was hospitalized for kidney failure. She was down to 10% working. Even today, she still gets weak and can't be as active as she once was.

December of last year, my step-mom had a "total abdominal hysterectomy" due to different organs not working and being diseased.

This past July, my step-dad had a table saw kick back on him. He lost his index finger and part of his middle finger. He's still in therapy, and they still have to do more surgery on his middle finger because the bone's not growing back right.

Last week, my Grandpa Ed had a stroke behind his eye. He's lost his vision in one eye. One carotid artery was 100% blocked, the other 95%. We're lucky it was just the eye- it usually goes to the brain. He was on the verge of having a massive stroke and would have if he hadn't caught it in time. He's not out of the clear yet, and has to go through a lot more testing, but he is out of the hospital for now.

Yesterday, my step-mom's uncle was sent to Memorial Hospital. He had an ulcer that ate through an artery in his abdomen and nearly bled to death, resulting in a heart attack. He's not expected to live.

So, if everyone could just send out healthy thoughts to my family, that would be great. I'm pretty sure the hospitals are getting tired of seeing my family (and we're tired of being in em!) As for me, I'm going to start walking around in a gigantic plastic bubble....

I'm not that girl [15 Sep 2007|04:29pm]
[ mood | jealous ]

Hands touch
Eyes meet
Sudden silence
Sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl

Don't dream
Too far
Don't lose sight of
Who you are
Don't remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I'm not that girl

Every so often we long to steal
To the land of what might have been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

Blithe smile
Lithe limb
She who's winsome
She wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And heaven knows
I'm not that girl

Don't wish
Don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know
He loves her so
I'm not that girl

Stewie was talking about his journal thingy last night, and that got me to thinking about mine, which I haven't updated in forever. So this morning I thought, hey, why not.

Life's going good. I moved into my new apartment last week. It is really nice. My room looks kind of manly though. I'm hoping that once I put pictures up it'll look like a girl lives in here :P Right now, the room is very plain, so if anyone has any tips to make it look lived in, I'd welcome them.

Currently, I'm looking for a job. If you're in the Bloomington/Normal area, and you need someone to work for you, just give me a call- I'm your gal.

Other than that, nothing much has been going on. I've been seeing a lot of movies- I think I've watched more movies this summer than I have any other summer. Spiderman 3, Are We Done Yet, Pirates 3, Shrek 3, Knocked Up, Fantastic Four- actually, I saw that one twice, once with Stewie, and then the following day with dad and the rest of the fam for Father's Day. Luckily I liked the movie, otherwise I'd be tortured :P

I don't really have anything else to say. Shoot me a line and we'll talk :)
