I am doing well! Last week, my boss gave me a very favorable annual review. :) I have been applying the 2 ointments the dermatologist recommended to the red marks on my nose bridge, and the redness is fading!!! :D I am also continuing to do my ... Read more

I just want to thank all the Sparkers who left such kind comments on my last blog. I was in a dark place yesterday...lately, I've been down about not being in my 20s anymore, and I've been noticing how I've aged (skin isn't as youthful, etc.). ... Read more

I might sign up for Match.com tomorrow. I've been looking at pictures of myself, and I've come to the realization that I am truly ugly. I might look okay on my SparkPage, but pictures can be deceiving. I think I was just born ugly. Peo... Read more

I'm so happy, SparkFriends! :) I had no idea how much my confidence would skyrocket by moving out! I even flirted (for the first time in my life!) with a security guard at work last week! He always seems to go out of his way to say hi to m... Read more

After much thought, I have finally set up automatic transfers from my checking account to my savings account every time I get paid. I am going to save at least 20% of my net pay in order to set myself up for success. Yesterday, I dined out... Read more

On Monday, I got an email from the head honcho at our court; she asked me to see her in her office. I immediately feared for my job security, but she ended up giving me an award for my work performance this past quarter!!! :') I was among a gro... Read more

Today, my friend and I dined outside at Olive Garden (one of our favorite restaurants) for lunch. It was nice! I still prefer dining inside, though (I like AC, and hate bugs). I made sure to tip more than I usually do, because I'm sure the bu... Read more

Where to begin? On Friday, my parents and I moved my "big stuff" (office chair and its floor mat, standing fan, printer, etc.) into my friend's new house. On Saturday, I officially moved out!!! :D I brought the last of my stuff to m... Read more

Yesterday, my mom told me she has been praying, and that whatever tithe she and my dad give to their church will also be in my name. So, I think this is her way of saying that she won't nag me anymore to give tithe to her church. :') Many ... Read more

I want to say something. In one of my former blogs, I wrote that I was shocked to hear that one of my coworkers weighs 200 pounds. I used the word "shocked" not because I look down on people that weigh that much or more; I meant that I was gen... Read more

Happy Labor Day! Yesterday, I moved some more of my stuff into my friend's new house. We met at 5 pm to avoid the extreme heat, but it was still way too hot for comfort. We are hoping to officially move in by next weekend. I'm excited to... Read more

I was originally planning on seeing what my monthly expenses would be like after I move out before changing my TSP contribution, but now that my mom said that I don't need to help my parents financially after I move out, I took the plunge, and f... Read more

I took a sick day today. In the morning, I had an appointment with my (dreamy) dentist to replace an old crown (it was very sensitive to cold, and felt weak when I chewed hard things). He found that there was extensive decay under my old crown... Read more

I just asked my mom if she prefers that I pay my parents' car insurance bills, or to give them a monthly gas or grocery store gift card once I move out, and she shockingly said that I don't have to help them financially after I move out!!! I wa... Read more
