Weak in the Ts

Is it wrong that I wan't T-shirts from threadless just because there is hot hipster dorks wearing them?

Emerging from the depths

Sorry for my lack of involvement here. I have been a little disconnected from the world trying to fix my macbook pro which was randomly freezing on me. 4 reinstalls and much frustration later and I think It is doing ok (as in the fucking thing has not frozen on me yet today). I have about 400 items in my news feed to read through and tons to do at work so until I can catch up I am sure posting will be sparse.

I was reading about what makes a good blog on 43 folders yesterday and it was talking about what makes a good blog, passion frequency and identity. All of the things I have felt this blog has been missing for a while.

Being as busy as I have been working at an insane job and having a fantastic boyfriend and social life makes for fairly boring reading. I always find it hard to be creative when I am happy and not stressed out. Its this whole bipolar aspect of my personality that when I am at my breaking point ideas flow out of me like a fountain. I have this constant feeling in my gut that is telling me to DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING I actually imagine the voice is Warren Ellis after 7 red bulls and a few shots of whiskey.

I want to learn how to use brushes in adobe or corel paint. I want to be able to finish some art I have been working on. I want to be more involved in civic politics and the edmonton Blogging/twitter scene. I want to be a voice for LGBT people and fighter of conservative power and proponent of equality. I want to mock more websites for being poorly designed.

This blog was intended to be an extension of my brain on the web. A place where I could go and reflect, produce and rant. Those three aspects of myself have been in short supply as of late. So today I am making a pledge to myself to DO SOMETHING every day. I need to start doing some brain yoga or else I am going to become boring.

beardless

I decided to give myself a bit of a trim sunday. Its nice clean start for the summer. This is the first time i have been sans go-t in over 5 years I think. It feels weird. Greg says it makes me look much younger but all I can see is my double chin :D

Diet update

Things with my diet have been going so incredibly well. I have managed to drop a little over 10 pounds the last 2.5 weeks.

I have had more than a few slip ups ( the pizza on Saturday and matts delicious cheesecake). But this is a total lifestyle change so I expected to have a few slip ups.

The rage feelings I was getting the first week are gone. Replaced with a mild longing for pizza bread. Out of all this surprisingly booze is the thing I miss the least.

Overall I feel great. Sleeping better an I have only needed like 3 pills in almost 3 weeks for my ulcer versus the 1 a day habbit I had before. 20 more pounds of fat to go.

This weekend we are hopefully
going to clear out our workout room so we can actually work out in it so I can get into shape for the pure pride party!!

Music Monday: Kick ass

I don't know why might I am in a mood to kick some ass at work. I think it is because I listened to Robyn's cover of cobrastyle and it always makes me want to take on the world.
