Pinterest

Dear internet, I am shamelessly addicted to Pinterest! A few weeks ago Michael (thanks!) sent me an invite and I figured I would try it out. I assumed like other websites I’d lose interest after wasting a couple of hours. No such luck. I’ve been a pinning machine! (My pinterest account: geekypam) What’s the point of pinterest? It’s simply a social way to pass along cool things you find on the internet. I’ve been pinning a lot to my Dream Home board. Here are a few of my favorite photos: Clearly I’ll be living alone if my house is that feminine! Here’s where I(we?) will be entertaining guests! Also, I love coming across really creative DIY things*. For example, these Save the Date cards. Seriously, one of my friends needs to get married so we can do this! *I’m not really a crafty person but it’s nice to know I have these ideas if I ever become crafty! Vacation jars – why didn’t I think of this before?! See? It’s not all bad. And since my birthday is coming up I do have a Wishlist board in case my family needs any help! Granted there are only a couple things […]

Thanks, Holdfire!

I just want to put it out there that my host, Holdfire has been the best hosting service I’ve ever used. I can say that because I’ve been through many other hosts and they’re the only one that I’ve stuck around with. Seriously, if you need a website host that is reliable go to them and let them know that I sent you! Thank you again, Jordan, for what you’ve done for me. ::big hugs!::

Rambling

I marked on the calendar at work my last day – Friday, May 8th. I haven’t officially decided what day I’m leaving for the trek to Seattle but I imagine it will be the following week. I wanted to have some time to pack and spend time with friends before heading out. I’m still feeling a little nervous about the drive, and honestly I’d still prefer to fly out there but my brother thinks having a car out here would be helpful. This week is definitely calm compared to last week. Last week was filled with a lot of stress because I had 3 tests, one of which I wasn’t really prepared for. Plus, I’ve taken on a web design job for my brother’s friend. It’s not a big job but it’s hard to balance putting in time for it with work and school. I have a hard time enough trying to get myself to study let alone do anything else. I’ve been trying to get better by getting rid of sites I waste time on, but I’ve only got rid of BrightKite and Livejournal. I briefly thought about doing away with my Twitter account, too, but I just can’t […]

The new year

I first began this post wanting to detail 2008 and the many things that happened, but I don’t want to bore you with what you’ve been able to read in the past, or that I’ve told you. Most of my readers are close friends who hear about what I’m up to on a regular basis, especially if you read my twitter updates. I probably update twitter more than I should at times, but I suppose there are far worse addictions. Overall, 2008 has been a wonderful year. I’ve met a lot of new friends, mostly through flickr, that I continue to see on a regular to somewhat regular basis. Most importantly, I traveled more than I’ve ever done before in a year span. I think that was my big “resolution” for 2008: to travel more. To view photos from 2008 click here. As for 2009 I’m not making any “resolutions” per-say, maybe a few goals. The word “resolution” seems like a doomed word, who really keeps their resolutions? Well, I suppose there are people out there with willpower, but I’m not one of them. I guess my big goal for this 2009 is to complete Project 365. I attempted Project […]

Square One?

I met with my college adviser today to register for classes for the Spring semester, it seems a little early but I guess it’s really not. I was assigned to this adviser after switching my major from “Undecided” to “Business” a couple of days ago. It was a liberating feeling at the time to finally not be undecided, but to be working toward something. I went to this adviser in hopes that he would be able to tell me what would transfer to UofL, and keep me going in that direction. Instead, he was about as clueless as I was and still am. I was already annoyed because he kept me waiting almost 45 minutes after my scheduled time, time that I could have been studying, so this added to it. He said that UofL is constantly changing their curriculum and it’s really hard to say what will transfer without talking to someone at UofL. I think a lot of it is universities want their students to get all of their classes completed at the university, and they’re making it increasingly difficult to have transferable courses available at community colleges. He found three classes for me and had a problem […]

Web 2.0

I first joined Twitter about a year ago and I deleted my account not long after signing up. It seemed like a silly concept and another website that I would have to keep track of. After joining again a few months ago it has become an addiction. I actually spend more time refreshing Twitterrific than I do on Flickr. I move from one addiction to another. It’s interesting to see what others are doing and a great place to meet new friends. Louisville has even began to have meet-ups for twitter members. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the first one, but apparently they had a huge turn out. Another website that has become popular among twitter members is BrightKite. BrightKite is a website similar to twitter where you can post notes, your current location, and post photos from your camera to their site. I’m a little hesitant to post too much information at this website. Is it really safe to post your home location? Who knows who will stumble across your page and decide to stalk you. There are settings to only disclose your locations to friends but it’s still a little unsettling. Until I get a fancier phone […]
