is why I haven't seriously exercised all summer. It takes away from my fangirl time :( I haven't watched Farscape for almost a week. But that's okay, because I feel so much better physically already. I expect I'll be participating less in fandom related things, but I'll still be checking LJ and everything. I just mean I'll be cutting back to watching new episodes of different shows to maybe one a day, and I'll probably not be making icons for a while. I need to take a break and focus for a while :) I don't think I could ever not check LJ again lol, and I'll still be flailing once new seasons start this fall. So basically nothing's changing except I'm cutting back oniconning, Farscape, and taking more time watching (new for me) old shows instead of trying to finish them ASAP.
This is what I've been up to since my post about buying books:
Tuesday: I babysat my little cousins from 3PM til midnight at their house. It was a lot of fun, and they are absolutely adorable. I prefer just playing with them though, because being in charge makes me "borin" as Sarah said when I wouldn't let her make Play-Doh sculptures on her parents' newly painted walls.
Wednesday: Worked from 7-4, then went to my grandma's house to stay until Saturday morning. I had a relaxing visit and I love her so much, but she's very critical of everything so it was nice to only be there for a couple days. I wasn't too active online because she uses her stern voice and says "all you ever do is go on that computer," even though I was only on it for maybe half an hour in the morning and at night in order to keep up with my email. She also told me that it would be harder to lose weight the second time (which she said about 34803578934 times), and that kind of motivated me to prove her wrong, hence my post on Saturday.
Thursday: While staying with my grandma, she took me to Tanger Outlets and we picked up Jess jessemily18
on the way. It was sooo much fun to see my BFF twice in two weeks (we saw HBP on premiere night, IDK if I posted about that), and now I'll be visiting her at her house tomorrow! YAY. I bought a new lime(ish - what color would you call it, Jess?) green purse that was originally $120 for $33 and I love it.
Friday: I just read my acting book and watched movies throughout the day. Took my grandma to eat at Eat'n Park with my 20% employee discount, and that was it really. I watched the Other Boleyn Girl for the first time. Don't you like that movie, Greta gc87
Saturday: Came home, set my weight goal, and worked from 5-10. Eventful...
Sunday: Watched SG1 with my dad and brother (we're just now at the beginning of season 7. I'm moving back to school in 13 days, so there's no way we'll be able to finish the series before I go back. I'm hoping we can finish up to season 8 so they're not left on a real cliffhanger) and then went to work from 4-8:30. Again, fairly uneventful.
Monday: Yesterday I went shopping with my friend Brittany, but I didn't buy anything except lunch. I did, however, put together hypothetical outfits and asked Brittany's opinion on them as she is very fashionable and always wears clothes I envy. She approved of all the outfits I picked, and I found the cutest shoes EVER for $5, but they only had one size smaller than mine and I therefore could not buy them. UGH. Anyways, came home for a short while and researched moving out of the country, then went to the gym and worked my butt off. It was the same instructor, but I think I pushed myself 3x harder than I have all summer. Then I came home and worked on the parts we didn't do in the aerobics class.
Today: Babysitting just TJ, then going to the gym, followed by the cheapie movies with Brittany and Angelyn.
LONG POST. Pretty unimportant stuff, so don't feel like you need to read :)
