I have a new blog thing! I decided to go with WordPress. Just time to move on, you know?

Here's my new blog! Leave a comment there to tell me what you think!

All of my old blog posts have already been moved over, but for a while they'll still be available here. I think I'll delete them from here sometime later this week.

Check it Out!

This morning I was trying to pre-order that one guy's CD, but was having technical difficulties. Jumped on the chat room on his website and lo and behold, he was online!

He totally wants me now.

Another Post in the Same Month???!

Unemployed life is frickin sweet!

So far all I've done is play with my camera and Aperture, and listen to music on our sweet new surround sound. Look! A Flickr account! (More photos at my MobileMe Gallery.) I may have also slightly cleaned the house yesterday, which I will have to continue to do, to make sure my husband doesn't regret his decision to let me quit my job. The good news is, I now have two for-sure piano students, and possibly a third. Yay for supplemental income!

I have made a goal for myself in my new life to eat less, go outside EVERY DAY, and go swimming specifically three times a week (at least during the summer). Today I'm headed to Santa Cruz with some family, so that will be my outside time. For right now I'll continue to be a nerd on my computer and possibly play a video game or two.

It's Been Too Long

I find it hilarious, and not surprising, that my second to last post is titled "I Haven't Forgotten That This Exists." Because I still haven't, even though it's been over a year.

So, this will kind of be a hodgepodge of random things in my life:

Last August I went from being a Specialist in the Apple Store to a Family Room Specialist. The difference is before I sold products, and now I teach customers how to use their computers, and I also work at the Genius Bar repairing iPods/iPhones/iPads. I had to work full time in order to get the job, which means I took this last semester off (the semester before that in the fall I took an online class but that was a disaster). BUT, happily, I am going back to school this fall, and am taking the summer off to play around before then. My last day at Apple is next Tuesday, the 28th. It's both happy and sad (but mostly happy). This isn't the only reason I am thoroughly excited for this date, though. The extended cuts of The Lord of the Rings on BluRay come out that day, and I have had mine happily pre-ordered for a few months now. I can't wait! (Also, if you know anyone who wants piano or violin lessons, hit me up. squeakystrings.com.)

We just recently bought a new TV, and let me tell you, it is awesome. It's this one right here. We love it. Our PS3 looks a zillion times better, as well as all our (my) older game systems, too. Yay! We are also planning on replacing our archaic and ugly surround sound, which will be sweet. Every summer and winter my mom and I (and in the last few years, Brandon, of course) watch The Lord of the Rings, so we've got to get everything up to par to revel in aaaaallll the BluRay glory.

I've recently been obsessed with this guy. He is amazing! Here are some of my favorite videos of his:

and this one's been going rather viral lately:

Yup, I'm in love with him. Brandon's kinda jealous.

An Update in Reading Life

Finished Anne Frank's diary a few days ago, and just moments ago finished The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Up Next: The Scarlet Letter (I never read it in school). After that I'm debating between Jane Eyre, Bel Canto, or something completely different.

Perhaps you have suggestions? I like just about anything, as long as it's good. :)
