New Goals & New Things

It’s been a while since my last blog. I’ve been a bit preoccupied with a lot over the last week. I have a lot of things to post, though. I’ll get to them as soon as I can. First priority which will hopefully come before the weekend is over is my review on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2! I thought I would first shed a little light as to what I’ve been doing this week that has kept me so busy!

  • COOKING – I’ve been spending a bit more time in the kitchen over the last week. Made some delicious Cheesecake balls for my community group, which are in the freezer to take on Tuesday, I think anyway. I took pictures and plan to post about that soon! I’ve also just today tried a new Weight Watchers recipe I found in the magazine. Probably won’t be blogging about that one, though because I’m too lazy to take pictures! It turned out pretty good, but I’m just not crazy about chilled soups so I ended up warming it back up. It just tasted better warm!
  • NEW LAPTOP – I don’t think I ever mentioned that I ordered myself a new laptop. I haven’t had my own laptop in years and I’ve been really wanting lately to have something portable that I could use for writing, gaming and just general computing without being confined to the room where my desktop computer is. It actually arrived a week earlier than was estimated! Got it in on Wednesday and you can bet that’s what I’m writing this blog post from! I love it so much! Minus one minor thing that drives me crazy. Occasionally this blank space shows above all maximized windows where it shows the desktop wallpaper. When you restart it usually doesn’t show but after the computer goes into sleep, when it resumes it’s there. Really odd and really irritating. Regardless, I love it! It’s a Dell XPS 17.
  • TIME-LOST CAMPING – I mentioned in my last post I was trying to get the Phosphorescent Drake in World of Warcraft by attempting to track down the rare dragon, Aeonaxx. Took a break from doing that and instead decided to go help Sarah get her Time-Lost Proto-Drake. As of last night, we were finally successful! Sarah has gotten about 2 hours of sleep per day all week. I was so happy to be able to help her get it. Now we understand why it was called the Time-Lost Proto-drake. Because we certainly lost a lot of time trying to get it!
  • I also got my stitches out on Monday and it seems to be healing up pretty nicely. Hopefully the scar won’t last long. Other than that, I really haven’t been up to much. I’d like to say I’ve been spending a lot of my time keeping up with ChaLEAN Extreme but I haven’t been. Now that I have my laptop, though. I plan to get back on track with that. I’ll restart the last week I was on this coming Monday and get back on track! I also have a lot to do around the house that I’ve been slacking off on.

    I started working on my Day Zero Project. Right now I’m just putting in random things and eventually I’ll compile a real list to put on a page here. Gotta start somewhere, right? I suppose the first thing on my list should be Finish Making a 101 in 1001 list. I’m sure most of my list will be really goofy things.
