The Weekly Update: 2/26/17

The guys across the hall have St. Patrick's Day decorations on their door! I didn't even know St. Patrick's decorations existed?! Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's, and now St. Patrick's. These have got to be the most festive people I've ever seen! Also, last week I showed you all the hand turkey I drew, and I had this whole part where I talked about how I used to be into art and was trying to...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/19/17

You may have already seen my beautiful artwork on Twitter, but, in case you haven't, I got the urge to draw a hand turkey the other day. So I did. I think that sometimes, when you get the urge to do something on a whim, you should do it. It doesn't matter if it's productive or not, it's just good for your mental health. And that makes it productive. #LifeLessonsFromKristen ;-) Also, I had more...

Happy early Valentine's Day, I guess? I can't say I have any plans, but I do find it kind of interesting that the only people in my hall (granted there are only four apartments, or eight if you include the first floor) who have decorated for the holiday is the group of young guys. I feel like there's this stereotype that it's girls who like to decorate for holidays and whatnot, but these guys...

Ugh, why has it been so cold?! My tiny little space heater cannot keep up! Also, the only warm shoes I have are boots, and I can't wear those with sweatpants because that looks weird. It's a real problem lol. Anyway, I had some fun and educational dreams last week! It was a nice change from the usual weird ones. In one of them I got to dance! The person I was dancing with in the dream was kind of...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/29/17

There was some crazy weather earlier this week! 26mph winds. Tornado warnings. Freaking tornado warnings. I don't live somewhere that gets tornadoes. As a kid, the idea of tornadoes completely terrified me because I always felt like, what do you even do? Where do you go? You can't prepare for that! But seriously, I'm used to rain, thunderstorms, whatever. But where the hell did all this, just,...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/22/17

Gah, I have nothing to talk about again! Umm, I cut my hair? I cut at least eight inches off, but it's still what most people would consider long, so that's probably not very exciting news lol. The hair I temp-dyed teal years ago that never actually washed out have all finally been removed though, so that's something, I suppose. Oh! I tried this frozen apple crumble thing that you cook in the...

My tennis elbow is back :-/ I knew this would be an ongoing battle. I know I'm not good at resting injuries, but I really thought I had been doing better with resting this one than with pretty much any injury I've ever had in the past. *sigh* In better news, I completely forgot to buy peppermint oil when I went shopping -_- but I think the cold weather finally got rid of the last of the ant...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/8/16

It has been a fairly uneventful week for me. I'm just kind of really extra tired because of all the construction noises -_- I'm finally going to buy myself some peppermint oil to use for the ant problem today though (if I remember). I haven't seen any lately, so they might be gone, but I was wrong about that once before, so I'll use the peppermint oil just to be sure since apparently they don't...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/1/17

Happy New Year, everyone! Does anyone else think it's kind of awesome that the first day of the new year falls on a Sunday? I still consider Sundays to be the start of the week (even though it seems that Monday has become the new start of the week for most people for some reason), so I think it's cool. But anyway... I have to admit that my year isn't off to a very good start. I still have tennis...

Merry Christmas, everyone :-) Or, if you don't celebrate or are not celebrating for any reason, happy Sunday :-) I know it's Christmas, but I still wanted to post because I love this blogging community and still wanted to say hi to everyone. I will keep it brief though since most of you are probably busy. So first, just for funzies, I will share with you all one of my favorite Family Guy scenes...
