I don't come here often enough anymore to justify my paying for a membership when i go back to school. So, i'm leaving the site for awhile.

Many people have moved on to facebook (WHY? I have yet to comprehend... Suicidegirls has pictures of nakef girls, and facebook has... Virtual farms. Wow, what a tossup!) i have moved on to sparkpeople.com, where...

And you have an obvious knack for sarcastic and witty banter. Now I really wish you would stick around. love If I could renew your membership, I would do it in a heartbeat. But I'm so broke that I had to get a friend to renew mine. Lol True story...
shema:
So...you want me to join you on a site that you don't even like, and that you hardly use? And you only go on to keep up with friends and family? Neither of whom I qualify to be? Katie, you've got yourself a deal!

Let's see, I haven't updated this in forever, and a lot is new!

I gained 42 lbs in 2011, due to medications that I had been taking.

In 2012, I have lost 35 lbs. (so far) since January of 2012, and I feel GREAT about it. The food I'm eating makes me feel happier and more energetic, and I love going to...

Good to hear that eating better and going to the gym are both paying off well.

Easing back into school is definitely the way to go, especially if you've been out of it for a while. Nutrition is a pretty interesting area - it's something I got bits and pieces of at pharmacy school but it was interesting stuff (what I learned is mostly applied nutrition plus all the calculations for preparing IV nutrition).

So I did visit Jay in Colorado, it was lots of fun. We went hiking in the mountains and it was beautiful. We also went to some neat hippie towns near where he lives.

Work is going fine, I've been working about 35 hours a week lately. I'm trying to save moneyfor real now since I didn't for the past few months...

Good to hear that things are going well.

For bank accounts I have taken a liking to discover bank and ally financial - both are virtual banks (online and via phone access only, no branches) so the rates are a bit better vs traditional accounts. Not by that much but still a little bit helps.

I'm more disappointed with the way that I was told my services were no longer needed at my job than the fact that it happened. Hopefully it will all work out for the best - I have interviews lined up and will be eligible for unemployment so things are at least decent.

Brief update:

I joined a better gym and am back to going 5 times a week. I've been swimming, doing yoga, Pilates, cardio and kettlebell classes. It's kicking my ass but I've lost 10 lbs. so far!

I got a raise at work. It's just 50 cents an hour but I'm proud of myself.

I've been dating a lot...

I really wish I could afford a gym that had a pool. The one I go to is nice for being cheap, but I haven't gained or lost anything it seems. Plus I really miss swimming. >.<

I'm still having trouble adjusting to my new work schedule. It's pretty simple - 2 weeks a month I work from 9 AM to 1 PM, and the other two I work from 1-5PM. Well, you can probably imagine which hours I prefer working, since I am not really a morning person. The thing is, when I work mornings, I have to get up...

My favourite ringtone has got to be the RATM version of the Imperial March...though it's way to hard to pick up the call when that starts ringing! Or turn the alarm off lol.

I got a job in the marketing department of an accounting firm.

Looking forward to Thanksgiving, when my sister will be in town.

What is new with you, SG folks?

I'm in DC for a couple days. Let me know if you would like to grab tea/coffee etc.
dovanna:
Dildo cozies are actually a great idea! I do have a pattern for a tiny knitted penis, I could probably scale it up to cozy size. I'll let you know when that project comes up in the queue, most likely after the holidays. smile

So, I haven't updated this thing in a REALLY long time. What is new with me?

Well, I moved back to Maryland last spring.

I'm looking for a job in the area.

I have been going to see stand-up comedy most Saturday nights.

I have been watching a ton of old Ally Mcbeal episodes (for those who forgot, a 90's TV comedy...

Let's see, what is new in my world?

-My roommates told me that they are planning to buy a bigger house and move there around the time my lease is up. They plan to rent out this current property. They asked me to come with them, and I'm touched. It also seems like a nice arrangement, living in a bigger space with people...

Hey! I haven't gotten in touch with you for, like, a year at least. I'm on SG sporadically these days and your IM and number have been lost to old computers and dead phones. I still wanna keep in touch! Hope things are going well for you. smile
dovanna:
I don't think I'll make it back to VA at all this year. frown My folks will be coming up to visit me for Xmas this year, and I don't have the dough to do much traveling for awhile. I haven't been back to DC since I left 4 years ago, it's kinda sad.

I'm on facebook and google+ if you want to hit me up there.

Life's been kind of dull lately. Day in, day out, been mostly going to classes, studying, going to the gym, doing any necessary errands and chilling at home. But you know, adjusting to my fall class schedule has been pretty stressful, so I kind of needed a bit of boring.

Tomorrow night's my queer women's book club, and we're discussing a...

Good for you on eliminating sugar, it is a drug in its refined form, and does cause what you described.
Be well!
anonmymouse:
I love that photo of you from 2 years ago in Genderfuck Drag pics!

Interesting, I was never a sugar fiend 'til I found out about anxiety and sugar. Then I was more like, go for sugar, but it's worming it's way into sugar in hot beverages and stuff so I need to get back to fruit. Yeah, go fruit! Fuck loads of sugar in fruit, along with hydration and vitamins and a wealth of benefits. Be a fruit bat for the anxiety.

I am so, so, sick of the assholes on the bus.

When a bus is so crowded that all or almost all of the other seats are taken, when people are standing even... the asshole is the person who is sitting on an aisle seat when the window seat is empty.

And yes, I'm that person who goes up to the asshole and says...

Thank you, I always tend to read and not post but lately I've had more questions and ideas. I'm sure I don't say anything of much use though but it's fun. I'm probably one of those assholes on the bus, most of the time I cant bear sitting beside people but I try to take my bike everywhere and only use public transport if I really have to!

My friend got me an iPad for my birthday!

He sort of tricked me into accepting it, even though it's huge and I have never let a friend pay for something that expensive for me before. He made me promise not to argue about it before he gave it to me. I SO wasn't expecting something like this. But um, it's totally...

I've been having a blast since I finished with my finals for summer classes last week. Since Thursday morning, I have been on break from classes. Fall classes start September 7th.
It's a week and a half, but time flies when you're having fun and it already feels like there won't be enough time to chill and get things done as...

Thanks for the happy bithday note - it's really easy to miss birthdays on this site since it doesn't have an area with a list of birthdays like facebook does so more often than not I end up missing them too.
