I realize I’m still working on my phoenix tattoo, which has significant meaning to me, but I’m already thinking about my next one. I actually already know what I want: a tattoo of a tree. I’m not sure if I want to just go with like.. the celtic tree of life, or if I want to do something in relation to my bipolar disorder (I have a cool tree design dealing with it).
I’ll probably get this done as a reward for completing a few other things I’ve wanted to do. I added this to my list as motivation to complete a few of the goals I have set.
I wrote this down because it’s something I had eventually wanted to do, and today I realized I just need to do it. I live in a really unhealthy situation right now, so I can’t exactly afford my wonderful old organic, vegan diet. Since I started eating processed foods, I’ve gained like 15-20lbs, putting me at a high weight I can’t stand.
Today I ate a microwave pizza and some reeses. I have no idea why I ae the reeses. It made me realize that I need to stop now. So the first thing I am giving up is sweets. Sweets is the umbrella word that includes but is not limited to: ice cream, candy, cookies, brownies, doughnuts, muffins, cakes, pies, pudding, fudge, hot cocoa, soda, etc. I will allow myself one sweet a day, and that will be a piece of dark chocolate. Just one of those dark chocolate squares that Dove makes. 47 calories.
I’m also going to give up pizza. For some reason I eat a lot of that shit, and it has to stop. I don’t care how cheap it is. No. That goes for anything pizza flavored as well. It needs to go out of my diet. The only pizza I am allowed is that stuff that like.. Lean Cuisine sells.
So that’s my goal for now. I’ll check back in a week and let you know how I am doing. I’m going to try and buy more salads and cheap veggies/fruits, and eat those instead of everything else. I’ll probably start a journal for my whole.. bettering my life thing. Diet+exercise+giving up bad food.
So, if all goes according to plan, I may be moving out of the ‘burg in April. My lady friend and I really want to leave, and I can get us a temporary place with my family in texas until we can get our own.
I ordered a laptop from dell today. It’s yellow and pretty customized, and it cost around $875. I’ll post an entry when I get it. Hopefully it turns out well.
Went and got it done. It didn’t turn out so well. I go on the first to get it finished up. We’ll see.
I’ve been looking at tattoo designs for about two weeks now with Sarah. I have known since.. like.. forever ago that I wanted a phoenix, and today I sat down and designed a phoenix tattoo. It’s a simple phoenix done in black, with a heart drawn in the middle. I’m deciding on whether or not I want to color the heart (I would probably do rainbow). If Sarah likes it (she’s at work so she hasn’t seen it yet), we might both get matching tats.
The appointment is for Saturday! Sarah, her sister Amy, Amy’s wife Debbie, me, and possibly Sarah’s mom are all going in to get tattoos. I’m thinking I want to go first or second. I want a good quality, and I would think that doing 5 tattoos in a row would wear someone out.
When I can get to a scanner I will post the design.
I started taking online classes toward a degree in hospitality in January. I was/am really thrilled about going back to school, regardless of whether or not it’s online. However, I need my own computer, and one that travels well.
Currently I’m using my girlfriend’s mother’s laptop, which is dying as the days pass, and I worry about whether or not I’ll get my computer. I took out a loan, and I should find out in the next couple of weeks whether or not I will get it. If I get the loan, I’ll be buying a laptop from dell. I really want to indulge myself and get a Macbook Pro, but I can’t quite afford it right now. D:
I guess I’ll wait and see on the loan. Hopefully this gets completed soon, considering the dwindling life-span of the one I am using now.
