Start Your Diet Today!

One more day…

And I’m free as a bird!

I found out some purdy good news today. Well, one, I got a B on my hella term paper. That thing was a beast to write, and the fact that I scored a B, psh, nothin short of a miracle. I’m happy with it. But ASIDE from that, I got an email today from the fin aid department, and apparently they offer a completely separate Pell Grant for spring and summer semester. Never knew that! It’s too late for this spring/summer but, for 2012 I will be able to take four straight semesters. Not as glamorous as it sounds, but by next winter I will be desperate for my bachelor’s, and I’m bout damn ready to get that part over with.

Anyhow, so this summer IS going to be epic. I’m still fully determined to hit the ground running Saturday. Literally. I’m going to be participating in Jelbelle’s Three Month Summer Fiasco! I’ll lose a billion pounds!!! Yes. Actually, my goal for this summer is to be happy =) to try new things. I want to learn how to draw. I really do. I mean, I’ve never actually tried to learn before, so how do I know that I suck at it? I mean I know where my artistic talents lay, believe me. My writing is it, it’s the big one. The god given talent or whatever. Everything else I learn from here on out is purely acquired skill, but you know, I’m totally okay with having a little extra “skill” to go with my “talent” ^_~

Not only that, but I haven’t run in a while. I want to get outside and move. I want to feel the absolute bliss of having NOTHING hanging over my head. I can’t remember the last time I felt that way. Believe it or not, I actually started my weight loss journey during fall semester. So, this is the very first time in my life that I have been healthy and had (more or less) an endless supply of free time. I’m going to make the promise to myself here and now, one I fully intend to keep, and that is by the end of he summer, I am going to be a totally new person. So new, I won’t even recognize myself. And honestly, cannot wait for it!

Wish me luck on my last exam tomorrow, I really need it! And before I go, if any of you gals have a facebook, and would be ever so kind as to help me out: I entered Sebby in a photo contest! The winner gets $50 store credit. I’d love to win it, so if you have a page, all you have to do is follow the link below, like the Even Keel Exotics page, and then go to Sebby’s picture and vote for him!

    Voting for him right – I assume you mean liking his pic? or is there something else I have to do? I liked him anyway.

    I liked him — He is just too cute! And like incontrol, I really like your non-weight related goals. I SO wish I was at a point where I could do that. I’m trying, but at this point I feel like my weight is still so high that I have GOT to get that number down. And Kudos to you for wanting to acquire a new skill. That doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate what you do, it means you want to enhance it! Good luck and keep going! :D

    Good for you this summer! It’s been 5 weeks since DH left and I am just now starting to feel normal again, so maybe we will end up shining this summer together. Good luck on your exams, I know you’ll do fine! No facebook here, but I might could fanangle a friend or two into voting for Sebby.
