Have you heard?



Hello Muffins.

It's a new year and a new blog. I don't want to say that updating this regularly is a new years resolution...I will say that it something that I would like to follow thru on in 2010. After talking to my fav Colleen Whitney we agreed that 2010 is going to be a spicy year. How spicy? Well let me just tell you...

*ahem*

Shpicy List 2010
(in no particular order)
  1. Save money so I can one day live like Jay-Z. Or just learn to put it away successfully so I don't end up living in a van down by the river.
  2. Stick up for myself--or rather let people know when something bothers me. (In a calm fashion of course)
  3. Keep up this gym attendance. I'm not thinking of losing Biggest Loser proportions but not sweating after tying my shoes would be neat.
  4. Continue to knit and learn more techniques because it makes me happy no matter how nerdy it is--which brings me to my next point...
  5. Open an etsy.com account to sell nifty knitted schtuff.
  6. Read more--especially classics.
  7. Listen to a wider array of music.
  8. Become more aware of political issues so I don't look like an airhead when people talk about them. (Apparently knowing gossip about people I have never met isn't as equally relevant as issues in health care.)
  9. Move in to my own place. (I'm 23 and live at home...not really something to put on a match.com profile)
  10. Write more--even if it's just random little notes.
  11. Learn how to french braid & successfully put on eyeliner. Currently I look like this when I attempt any kind of eye make up-
Hopefully at least a few of these things can happen this year. They seem pretty tangible.

Wish me luck in my year of spice! I'd love to hear any one else's wish list.

  3. Jones-- this is one funny blog. I'm laughing like Marisa does right now-- when she just kind of wheezes? It's THAT funny. Oh, hi Marisa, if you're reading this... don't be mad.

    I'm about to go fill up your comment forums with random stuff and you're going to rue the day you met me, but first I thought I'd post something helpful. :)

    Videojug.com has the best how-to videos-- which is the easiest way I know how to learn french-braiding and eyeliner. Also, french-braiding is hard.

    Also, my cousin, Abby, loves to knit and is great at it. She has an etsy store and blogs about knitting. You should check out her blog: http://artohline.wordpress.com/

    Good luck with your shuper shpicy year!
