My first written post of 2010 isnt going to be amazing. I feel as though I have lost most of the creativity I once had with this blog. Or when I think of something witty or creative to write, I normally don’t find the time or am too damn lazy to actually sit at the computer to type it out. I am going to however make every attempt possible to write more.
So since I last wrote, not much has changed. The holidays were just ok as was my 11 day vacation away from the office. I didn’t do anything very exciting and simply stayed up late watching tv and woke up the next day just before noon on most days. I spent a few days with my 3 younger brothers and parents which was less than exhilarating. I know when I am getting old when I cant stand being around my younger brothers when they are running around the house beating each other up. Their ages are 10, 14, and 16. They are too loud and have too much energy. They make me feel old. I did take them on a little outing and treated them to see Avatar 3D, which at that point I had already seen it in Imax 3D. Yes, I thought it was as amazing as most people claim. So if you haven’t seen it yet, you must, and you also must see it in 3D. Definitely worth it.
The Steelers didn’t make it to the playoffs sadly. So football season for Pittsburgh has come to an end. I do although enjoy this because that means less traffic I have to deal with since I live near the stadium. Here is me at my first Steelers’s game which I attended this year!
The bf and I have finally decided what type of dog we are going to get whenever it is that we get one. At first I was set on getting a miniature dachshund. Then I fell in love with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. However, for different reasons we have ruled both of those dogs out and decided on an Italian Greyhound. We decided on this dog because not only do they have very limited shedding abilities, but they are also good with children, and they like to snuggle up to people because they get cold so quickly. I have also decided that I want to litter train the dog. This will be better for the dog as we can let it roam the house while we are both at work as well as prevent me from having to wake up early to take it outside in the cold to pee in the morning. Best idea ever, right? The bf doesn’t think so, but this is a must, so there is no room for negotiation on this.
Now as for new years resolutions, I have the same ones for the most part every year. I kind of completed mine from last year. I gained the weight I wanted to. However, it wasn’t completely the type of weight I wanted. I gained a total of 30lbs since last January. This time last year I was a whopping 140lbs. I am now tipping the scale at just over 170. My resolution was to reach 165lbs. However, I wanted to gain it in muscle and not fat. I failed with that one. I think I gained both though. So I cant be too displeased with myself. I also wanted to grow some more chest hair. Which also happened. All naturally too! So thats fun! Here is me one year ago…
And me now…
So I will take that 30lbs that I gained and be happy with it. Now its time to trim the fat and muscle up the arms and chest.
