End of the Semester

So I'm done for the semester. Next week is finals, of which I have none, so I've got to wait a little longer for grades. I've got at least one A.

Anyway. Semester's over. Now I can relax. Super relax. Which is awesome, because as some of you know, my last few (locked) posts and the past month or so have been very VERY depressing and hard for me. One bad thing after the next, and to top it off, earlier this week, my bike was stolen (which never hit me as so tragic, because all those little things seemed so much worse than bike theft. And it was the third time it's happened to me, so maybe I'm used to dealing with it. Thankfully, I had the money to get a new one, so I did, and it is pinker and girlier).

During my depression, I ate. I never really experienced eating my emotions, but wow, I went overboard. And it was all salt cravings, which I always have anyway, so even if I did lose weight due to malnutrition, I've made up for it in water weight.

So my main goal over the summer is to lose weight. I'm not going to diet. I'm going to eat healthier and exercise and CHANGE my diet. Ideally, I'd like to transition into being vegan, since I like vegan foods and don't eat much meat anyway. The hardest part will be saying goodbye to all the delicious pig meats I enjoy at breakfast. And la poutine (unless the local poutine truck has a vegan option).

Other goals for the summer:
~ Toronto (of course)
~ Learn to play something on the ukulele
~ Make LOTS of jewelry for my business (and promote)
~ Clean out the apartment and have a yard sale (or a porch sale)
~ re-connect with my pen-pals
~ create more stuff
~ keep in touch with my painting buddies at open studios
~ work on comics (and practice 3-point perspective)
~ learn more about what I can do with my surger
~ (open for suggestions)

Stay tuned for a photo dump of my semester's work :)

That goes after "buy a car" which I'm sad to say wont be happening this summer :(
But if you're ever in Rochester, let me know, because I miss you too (and still have a Panty/Stocking button around here somewhere for you)!

I keep trying to get a license but I guess God doesn't want me to drive,..and even if I could, with gas prices so high I don't know if I'd even drive all that much.
You know, the #20 bus goes from the city to my house. Laura takes it to come and visit me all the time.

Really? Where the flip do I hop on from? Downtown? But how often does it travel? And why haven't you hopped the bus to here? ;)

Because I'm a scardey baby to go alone ): Me and Melissa might come together sometime if I can coax her into it, as long as we have someone to pick us up from the bus stop. And you can get on the 20 from Broad Street Station...here's the schedule

I don't think it runs on the weekend though, but the 20 comes back through Spencerport at night and takes Laura back to the city (she lives on Dartmouth Street now)

Love your Eerie GIF !
I'm a big fan of "Eerie, Indiana" and I see you are too.
I saw your profile and that you said Dash X was your favorite character--he's mine too!
I hope you don't mind if I take a copy of your GIF.
Where did you get it?

Re: Love your Eerie GIF !
Thanks! Sure, you can snag it :)
I actually made that years ago for Jason himself XD
