101 Progress - September 2012

Well another month has come and gone, now let's see what I accomplished this month. :)

~ Blogged about my 101 progress, obviously! ;)
~ Made a pie from a recipe that I found on Pinterest! It was a Kit Kat pie and was SUPER easy!! Graham cracker crust, Cool Whip, cream cheese and Kit Kats. mmmmm The recipe was actually for Butterfinger Pie, but Kit Kat cost less at the store that I went to. lol 
~ Wrote a letter to a friend/a different friend...I'm not sure if I wrote a letter to a friend or not. But we'll say that I did and then next month I'll be sure to write down who I sent my letter to. ;)
~ Finished Reading the following book(s):, none :( I was so busy with work and school I didn't even finish the book for book club.
      Oh Wait!! I did read one book, I forgot about it because it only took like an hour to read. LOL It was called "The History of the World According to Facebook." It was basically a bunch of Facebook Statuses from people over the years. It was a little crass, a little sacrilegious sometimes but still hilarious!!! If you are a big history buff you will get a kick out of this book. LOL
~ Attended Book Club meeting...yes I did even though I didn't finish the book. It was a small meeting of 4 and two of us hadn't read the book. So we spent most of the night eating yummy desserts and talking about movies instead of books. LOL (I think I have to start over for my 6 months since I didn't read the book this month. I plan on finishing it but I must start over for my count. I wasn't very "active" this
~ Still writing in my journal albeit not as much this month but still writing.
~ Counted my pencils/pens; I'm at 277!! I got 6 new pencils this month; 2 of which were "Smencils" They came in a tube and I got one that smells like Peppermint and one that smells like Watermelon. mmmm
~ Counted my nail polish; I'm at 78. I got 4 new polishes this month which would've put me at 81, but I had to toss out three of my old ones. :( Including my black crackle polish /cry They were all too thick and the two white polishes were almost gone too. Also, if anyone finds my topcoat I would really appreciate it, the stupid thing disappeared!
~ Pedicure of the Month - Well, Dr. Who premiered the first weekend of September so I began my month of geeky nail designs with an abstract Dr. Who pedicure. :)

 ~ Song of the month: Last month I dedicated to Mom-mom, this month I am going to dedicate to my dad; he passed away from cancer on September 1, 2005. His favorite band was Pink Floyd. I listened to Pink Floyd on September 1st in memory of him; ironically this was the first song that started to play.

I can't wait to see what happens in October!!!

Good Evening (mwahahaha) - LOL Sorry...Yes, it's gunna be one of those posts. lol So, once again I am procrastinating. I am trying to write my English paper and am having writer's block. For some reason it helps me just to tell someone and for some reason typing my ramblings helps too. It's kinda like my brain has to get everything out, and then I can focus. Go figure. Does anyone else have that? You just have to say what you have to say and then you're good? I started doing entries a while ago where I would just open a word doc and then write to my little heart's content. I found that it really helped clear my brain and so it's something that I do on occasion. How lucky for you, you get to read my ramblings. LOL

Ok, another topic. I guess I titled this YAY!!...meh there was a reason behind that, so I'd guess I'd better explain it eh? I want to talk about my weekend. Yesterday was awesome! Andy has been having to work on the weekends and since I can't drive that means I would be stuck at home all about boring. Well, yesterday was the first Saturday that he's had off in a long time so we spent the day together AND outside of the house. We went and had lunch, went to a movie, walked around the mall, had dinner and went home. It was such a simple day, but so much fun! It was good to just spend time with him. We went and saw The Expendables 2, which was great!! I loved that all of the classic action movie guys (aside from Jackie Chan) were in it. There were so many lines from some of their other movies that snuck up on ya and made it hilarious.Totally fun day!!

And then there is today....meh. Andy is not home, I have to write a paper (note: it is almost 8p), I am tired and need to go to bed at a decent hour tonight. There are definitely other things that I would rather be doing, some that I should be doing but am also avoiding, like laundry and dishes. LOL I am being a good girl and not doing the things that I really want to do, like reading and painting my nails (those will have to wait until after I have written my paper). But I am blogging, which is definitely more preferable over writing a paper.

It's funny, I really want to write this paper. I got to pick the topic and it's something that I'm interested in writing about. I'm going to be doing research on dreams and deja vu, how/if they're connected and then comparing it to the scientific explanation for deja vu. That is something that I have always been curious about and have wanted to learn more, but now that I have to write about deja vu, I don't want to. Ugh...I wish I could get over the "I have to do something, so I don't want to" hurdle that seems to cloud everything that I do. Any suggestions?

I wonder if I've written enough to help my writer's block? You are probably tired of listening to me ramble, so I guess I'll go. Now maybe I can write. All of my thoughts are there, but none of them want to go on paper. /sigh.... Any help as to how I can overcome the "I have to do something, so I don't want to" hurdle would be much appreciated. Also, if you have any insight into my topic I would love to "interview"/talk to you about it. :)

Your crazy, rambling, writer's block buddy,

The Nail Files!! Woo WHO!! 9/7/12

This week on "The Nail Files"...

Okay. So. September 1st was the season premier of Doctor Who. Being the geeky Whovian that I am I HAD to have Doctor Who themed nails. LOL So behold the awesomeness that is my Doctor Who Themed nail art. 

For those of you who aren't Whovian's this design won't make any sense to you. Are any of my blogger friends Whovians? If not you should be. LOL 

Quickly, I have a couple Daleks, the Tardis, my "bowties are cool" nail in-between the Daleks and my pinky is a galaxy nail. The galaxy nails were fun and I'll probably do those on all my nails one of these days.

To keep up with my pedicure of the month, and add to my Geekyness, my toes had to match. LOL I actually did my toes first. It's good practice before you spend an hour painting your fingernails. Plus you know your design and technique so it makes it that much easier. :)

I <3 <3 The Doctor!

Your Geeky Whovian,
Jessy <3

The Nail Files!!

This week on "The Nail Files"
I am posting a few weeks worth of pictures. I didn't realize how long it's been since I've done one of these posts. Oh how I miss you. lol :)

This past month (August) due to a Klout Perk I got TWO new nail polishes for FREE! Talk about Fan-TAS-tic! I decided to have some fun with "Stroke of Brilliance" and did a little Fire and Ice theme. It was awesome! The "ice" was so cool (no pun was really intended). I may have to do that during the AZ winter, when I am wishing for snow. LOL

The next week was the first week of classes, so I did "an apple for the teacher" theme.

And lastly, I FINALLY got some magnetic polish that works!! I bought some little magnetic polishes from ULTA while I was in CA and they sucked!! Never buy Ulta brand magnetic polish!! My mom sent me this new polish and I had bought a Magnetix magnet off of Amazon, together they were magical! Being the perfectionist that I am I had a little bit of a learning curve for this polish. If anyone has any tips they would be much appreciated! :)

I have already done this weeks manicure but I want to save it. It needs it's own post cuz it is just THAT awesome!! ;)

Your nail artist, 
Jessy <3
