A Happier Me

9:14 a.m. Before I go into what's been going on all week, I need to say that I'm feeling happier and more at peace lately than I can remember.

For once, OkCupid got it right. I found a guy (and we aren't dating yet but we have one planned for next week) and...he's just my type. He calls me beautiful and gorgeous (which in the past coming from ANY other guy was actually a pet peeve, but it didn't bother me coming from him.) In fact, I liked it which was even stranger.

What I know now is I'm smiling more. I get these new, happy, and strange butterflies in my stomach when we talk. I sometimes can't sleep now because I'm smiling too much. He doesn't care that I thought my hair was too messy to be on a webcam or that my smile wasn't perfect, just finding me beautiful the way I am.

If he reads this, I'm running to the corners and hiding with deep blushes, just saying.

Also, even when I feel my most awkward trying to conversate, he said I actually talk quite a lot, which surprises me.

To sum it up, so far God has been answering my prayers. I genuinely like this guy and look forward to going on a date with him, if that's what God has in store for me. :)

Fluffy stuff aside!!

A LOT of package ordering from Amazon, lately!

I got a fresh updated copy of the Dream Doctor, The Mummy 1 and 2, Jurrasic Park Series, and Twister. When/if I get Titanic, my favorite 90's cheese DVD collection will be set. :) That an Josie and the Pussycats. For me, the nineties had the classics. I've also reorganized my DVD collection alphabetically, and not just sections for ones I only bought because Jonathan Rhys Meyers was in it or Marilyn Monroe.

I also bought Once Upon a Forest purely for nostalgia.

I got a 64GB flash drive for computer back up, 13 port usb hud, and a usb card reader. All useful things. I bought some new pots and pans for the house as well, which were kinda small. I got a fan which actually breathes air into the room.

I got that Madea play I wanted at Wal-Mart. Been eating a massive amount of boiled peanuts, lately.

I've been on an organizational kick this week. Starting with, and with help from Mom, getting a lot of storage bins, portable closet, and exchanging my large bed for a twin bed which April helped me go pick up from DJ's trailer. That was an adventure. (Thanks, rain.)

The harder part was the fact that thanks to a narrow hallway and small room, I had to take the frame apart and bring it back..and then it didn't exactly want to come back together. In fact, it took massive help from April and her stepdad just to get the job done. To thank her, as she refused any other payment, I washed the load of dishes. :)

I crafted a hanging board from scrap wood, nails, mod podge, and black spray paint. I STARTED a crate but ran out of mod podge. I gave it to April. She STARTED spraying it in black spray paint but ran out. :/

There's been furniture re-arranging going on to give my tiny room some space and I've been sticking my excess stuff from the living room in our storage shed. Hoping to do more once the rainy period clears up. Siri says it's gonna rain all week. Fun fun.

New SecondLife creating as usual and currently saving up for a nice birthday present for Aaliyah in October. She turns the big 'double digits' and I couldn't be more proud of my niece.

Healthy eating has been going great, still not exercising as much anymore, but give it time. A hiatus for me often produces a new burst of interest and acting on the motivation. My weight has gone down to near-normal, thankfully. I have not weighed myself, not at the start or since, just saying I notice the bodily change...pictures help, too.

If I hit a 32-inch waist, which is the lowest I'll remember being, I'll scream. I'm on day 47 and counting. Waist: 34 inches. I'm hoping it's not so much a vanity thing as it is 'Yay, I will fit some clothes even more nicely, now.'

I'm now a size 13, down from 16 or 17 at the start. My 'magic' number is a size 11/12, which I was for years, several years ago, before all this weight gaining happened. So I'm close and still pushing to see what a year of change will look like on me. Once I plateau though, I know adding in the processed stuff even in portions won't cut it anymore, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Still writing my main novel and 'started' a sequel to the Dream Doctor, but I've yet to continue it.

Unless I think of more, that's what's been going on with me lately. God bless. Jesus loves, lives, saves. Bye, folks.

9:38 a.m. Further update in regards to the last post. I DID manage to get my Christmas video off the laptop by putting it in a ZIP file. (I can't believe I didn't think of it before.)

Not getting an Instagram Album sequel...yet. Too much money to spend on one thing, instead I bought the stuff above.

I want....another six-hour mall trip at Brandon Mall. I want someone to take me to a mall with some money and just leave me there for six hours again. I should do that at some point when I get extra cash, haha. If you're new, yes I can spend six hours at a mall and most of it is not so much actual shopping, as it is taking pictures of pretty clothes and shiny things. :) Let's also not forget the cheesy dressing room selfies, okay?
