I got an application to Beauty Brands, the salon my hair stylist/friend works at. I know nothing about hair products, but he assured me that most of the retail workers didn't until they were trained. This makes me feel better, as well as the fact that the managers are pretty lenient on piercings and tattoos. I've been thinking about getting a nose or lip piercing, but I'm not sure if I'm actually going to go through with it. It might be a gift to myself once I lost a lot of weight.
Speaking of weight, it's been coming off slowly. D:
I'm going to find my workout clothes from the house and start going to the YMCA. If I spend a few hours walking and weight lifting, I'm sure I'll slim down faster. ♥
So I'm thinking about going back on a diet because fuck yeah, healthy living.
Last time, I just watched my fat and sugar intake (along with exercise). This worked pretty well, but maybe I should have considered calories, as well? I just assumed that fat and calories went hand in hand. If something was relatively low in fat, then it shouldn't be terribly high in calories, right? Eehhhhh...
Apparently for extreme weight loss I should consume around 1760 calories, which still seems like a lot. I'll give it a try for a week or so, and if it's too difficult, I'll bump it up to 1900.
I saw Toy Story 3 again with another friend last night, and awwww, it was still adorable. :D
Apparently a card from Ellie and Carl Fredricksen can be seen on Andy's wall, but I totally missed it. I caught the Pizza Planet delivery car, though! Did anyone else catch any crossovers?
ALSO LOLOLOL SID, I ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT KID.
Also also, did anyone else think the whole devil/hell metaphor for the garbage dump was pretty dark, even for a Pixar movie?
I'm having a pretty epic summer so far, despite the fire. My friends and I have been hanging out a lot, and I hope we're still close during the school year. Two of my good friends and I are going to the same college, so we should be able to find time to hang out. My other friends are a year or two younger than I am, so they should be easy to meet up with, as well. I should just make them create a LJ. :>
UUUUUGH, AND MY ROOMMATE. I WANT TO KNOW WHO SHE IS.
I really hope she's nerdy. :D
And then off into the real world.
To pay bills.
Deal with asshole coworkers.
Regret choosing a certain job.
Despite sitting through some Alice in Wonderland presentations tomorrow, and I'm done with high school. ♥
A used book store just moved to a new location and is hiring, so I'm thinking about applying. There's a relaxed dress code and the people who work there seem pretty down to earth, so it seems extremely promising. Plus, I'll be around books, and that's always good. :D
I'm also planning on going to an anime convention with a few of my friends this summer. I haven't been to one before, so I'm super excited, fjdskfds~
What are your plans for the summer? :3
LOL AP TESTS.
LOL LIFE IN GENERAL
I graduate in a few days which is pretty exciting. I already turned in my papers for college and received a pretty decent amount in scholarship money, now I'm just nervous about my roommate. Oh god oh god ohgod, I hope she's a nerd. :<
Also, fuck graduation parties, I'm just going to have a "summer birthday".
So it's finally dress weather, yay!
However, knowing Iowa, it's probably going to snow next week because Mother Nature hates our ass.
I'm looking forward to gardening this year. Some of my flowers have already germinated (like my peony bush! :D), and I'm thinking about growing sunflowers, watermelons, corn, strawberries, and tomatoes. I know I'm going to grow more things, but I'm just not sure what.
Thinking about college still makes me nervous. I found out that two of my friends and I are going to the same college, which does help my nerves somewhat. I just wish I had an older sibling so I'd know what to expect.
