New Phone!

I got a crappy phone last summer after accidentally leaving my much cooler phone out in the rain overnight. It was a cheap Samsung phone with buttons that stuck and a very flimsy design. I was telling my friend Shelly about it as Ash and I hung out at her house today with her and her month old baby Noah. Without a second thought she gave me her old orange Verizon LG enV. After fiddling with online stuff, we managed to get everything changed over so I now have a brand new working high(er)-tech phone!

Phone!

I absolutely love it. I spent the rest of the evening while we ate pizza and watched TV playing with all the new functions and transferring over my address book. It’s got a lot more ringtones than mine, games, a camera and video recorder, a song IDer, and a keyboard. I’m happy.

Tomorrow, we’re coming back over here to poke at the cats (and the baby) and play some fun Wii games. Ash and I have broken down and decided we eventually want to buy a Wii because you actually feel productive after playing those games. Yeah, we’re hooked.

I think now we’re gonna head out home though before the roads get too bad. TTFN!

Resolutions, Webdesign & Things

I was talking to T today about New Year’s resolutions and I decided that I need something a little different from my usual “I won’t procrastinate” motto that I try to stick to and then put in the closet to do later. So, after reading the latest issue of A List Apart, I’ve decided that my New Year’s resolutions are going to be more along the lines of technology-related. Here’s a list I’ve come up with:

– Move Amadaun.net to a new host that is WordPress-friendly.
– Move my Coyote Dreams blog from Dan’s site to the new A.net.
– Redesign and recode A.net/blog with Web Standards being the first thing of mind.
– Revamp and add content to A.net that brings in a variety of different readers.
– Have readers: This means actually writing content in the blog worth reading about!

Other resolutions that are slowly filtering into my mindset are anywhere from the lines of hit lvl 60 on both my warlock gnome and my tauren druid before the year is out, start drawing more – not just painting, writing stories for both my Atlantis series and my new Stories from the Paradise People series, getting something published even if it’s just in a magazine, working out more (yeah, right), and get an Outdoor Education internship as well as an English internship. I’m also trying to tell myself not to be so literal, stubborn, hypocritical, and hard to deal with, if not for my sake, but for T’s. She does it now (though I still don’t know how), but she puts up with me. I want to try to work on it though since the ringing in of 2007 means that this is the year I’ll be moving in with her (not for another 6 months but oh well).

This year, I think the biggest resolution I’m setting for myself is to be harder on myself, goal-wise. I need to motivate myself and stay with it (which I suppose will go hand in hand with not procrastinating so much).

Of course, I’m also going to try not to be so sick and catch every bacteria and virus in the line of touch. But I’ve already seemed to lost that battle being sick and still running a fever and throwing up. Wonderful isn’t it?

Come on 2007! Bring it on! I’ll sneeze on you and bring you down with me. This is going to be a good year.

Now, if you’ll excuse me. I’m going to go pass out since I’m still feeling really groggy and ill.

Heat wave in Wisconsin.

Randy and I are two very sad and unfit people. The last two days we’ve walked all over Ashland and today, well, today was just horrible. Both of us took on too much and pretty much died from heat exhaustion trying to get back to campus. I’m so glad I brought a water bottle with, even if it was really hot by the time we started walking back.

I’m in a wicked (hah) mood, so we went to the bookstore and I bought a copy of Wicked by Gregory Maguire, which I’ve been meaning to do for awhile. I love that book, and rivals two books for my favorite book of all time (Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie and The Neverending Story by Michael Ende). If you haven’t, read it.

I’ve been listening to a lot of the music from the musical as well. I’ve been feeling wicked.

In other news, I’m knitting and have no clue why. It’s way too hot to be knitting anything. I need to take Emry out, but it’s so hot, I don’t want him to get overheated. He will be coming with me when I go home now, so I’m excited. The plan was for him to stay with Tiff originally, but since I’m staying home longer now, I’m bringing him with.

I cannot Bear this heat. Remind me now to leave food in an open car.

Walking and Hula Hoop Crossings

I feel like Shawn Hunter right now from Boy Meets World when Cory and Topanga were getting married.

Not many people are going to know what I mean when I say that I think. But it’s true.

In other news, went for a much-needed walk with Matt and Randy today and brought back with me some pictures!

Hoola Hoop Crossing

Watch out for those Hoola Hoop crossings. They’ll get ya.
