Remember, remember!

Hello friends!
I've been productive!

The Halloween Gala went super awesome, I was very please with the attendance and the festivities. It was a very nice way to start my Halloween weekend! We made some money for the museum, too!!!

I applied for my dream job at Shilshole, and interviewed yesterday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, even though my competition was super fierce, we shall see. I'm not feeling very optimistic about my interview itself, I was certainly rattled by the questions that I felt were unrelated to the awesome job position.

I love the house and everything in it- it's come together pretty nicely. There is one small thing. I'm a closet-hoarder.

I've joined's Upgrade challenge, and I encourage you to try to do the same! It should be fun!
1. Fix my shin splints
2. drink water
3. clean up my devastation

New home

I'm moving- here's my new house:
It includes 2 bed, 1 bath, living, kitchen, and a rec room, backyard, shed, 1 boyfriend, and 1 dog!

From Self Improvement Project

My house doesn't actually have a mustache, I just want to protect my house's identity!

I finished the invitation, we are having an invitation folding party on Saturday. Sounds fun, huh! Ultimate fall season starts this weekend, but we have a by until next weekend, i'm glad, more time to stretch out my shins!
I'm sprawled out between two houses right now, and I have to get my stuff out before my trip to

Kihei Maui, Hawaiiiiii

Yes Man

I admire my friend Melissa for all of the wonderful memories she's been making this year. Her secret is, if there's time in the day for it, say yes!
She's pretty much always doing something, sports, parties, camping, rocking out, etc... because she gets invited and says sure.

I love spontaneity, but recently I've sort of closed down and done the relationship crutch thing. I know everyone does it in relationships, but I need to seperate myself and maybe it would calm down the anxiety I feel so often.
If someone invited me to something, I immediately find the quickest route in my head to justify a no. When I was single, I would have jumped at every opportunity to go out and be with people.
That's kind of a strange paradox, isn't it? You won't meet someone if you board yourself up at home, and then when you do meet someone, you shut the rest of the world out. i didn't mean to, it just happens that way. That's why I wanted to do Ultimate, to break that bizarre dependency.

From now on, just say yes.

Gala invitation

This is what I've spent some of my spare time working on. I feel pretty productive about it. It's not what I was originally going for, but better!

I've actually done a lot of changes to it since this version, but I don't want to put the final proof up without it being printed and sent understand!

Save up all my PTO for 3 years
Save up all my money for 3 years


Monday, June 28, 2010


I had staph and the viral outbreak, so good thing I took anti-biotics! I'm feeling better, but I think I should go on a suppressive therapy since I plan on being in the sun as much as I can. As for the the non-dissolving stress..I don't know what to do about it.

This weekend is kind of a big deal!
Last year I had attended Potlatch, but only as a carry-on, photographer, cheerer, and partier. I said to myself, and a few people, that next year I will be here- on my own team.
Potlatch is an ultimate frisbee tournament, where many folks from all about the nation come in to do it up right. It's 3 days of at least 3 games(yikes!), and lots of partying.
I have resisted the urge to play for the last 2-3 weeks, I'm trying to let my shins heal. While the tearing sensation persists, it's gotten a lot duller. Doesn't mean that if I should get out on the field it will magically be better.
I bought athletic insoles, I'm interested to see how they will perform... they feel good just walking around in my cleats. I will also have Icy-Hot, Ice packs, and heat pads at the ready for the weekend.
The plan is to heat patch in the mornings, stretch-warm up. Remove heat when ready to play. Ice packs after the point/game. We'll see how it goes!

A dash of stress

I'm not entirely sure where it's coming from, but I am feeling a little ball of stress in my tummy. No matter how hard I've ignored it, as usual, my skin has reacted.
I have a herpes virus dormant in my system that is from cold sores, but people with eczema don't get lip cold sores. It is more like chicken pox. Very painful, quickly spreading, and potentially fatal chicken pox.

As you can guess now, my stress has manifested into the sores on my chest and on my neck, with little random blisters on my shoulders, tummy, and face.
I would totally provide an example for you, but the images are so gross, and it makes me really upset to remember how my first outbreak was. If you do google dermatitis herpeticum, that's basically what my entire chest looked like. It was horrifying.

I went to the dr, and they cultured just in case it was staph, but i know for a fact by the tingling sensations all over my body that these are blisters.

Anyways, now i'm trying to realize what i'm holding inside, what I need to mentally exfoliate or take care of.
It's amazing how powerful our mind and bodies are. I need to listen to mine and take care of it. I'm ignoring my shin splints which is limiting my participation on the 3 ultimate teams i've paid for. I have this flyer to finish and get printed ASAP, because it will be distributed over July 4th. I'm trying to brainstorm guerilla ways to help save the homestead.

On second thought, maybe it's just too much sun that's triggered it. My chest/face has been burned at least 3 times already. X.X
