Last post as a 25 yr old

Goodbye 25! What a great year it was. Ah! My life just flashed before me! Nooo! It's too soon for that! ::sobs:: I've had a pretty good life so far.

I sold an item on etsy today! Alice in Wonderland bookmark. Sending that out to Italy tomorrow. Today was a bleh day. I mostly did school work -- took 3 quizes, wrote a bunch of post. My final exam is due by Sunday before 11PM. I'm doing pretty well. I have higher than average on my scores. My post are quite lengthy. I suppose I can break them up some to make a bunch of smaller post. Hrm dang, I should have thought of that earlier! Oh well, I'll think of that for next week (writing a note to self for I am too old to remember).

Seriously, this blog and posting on my course board has really helped me open up in conversation. Before I use to think if I say something, people would think I'm a moron or just weird. Now, I feel excited talking about random crap that pops into mind. The only fear I have with that is people thinking I have I was never tested for that. Anyway, I grew up by Philly in an uptight, rich area where if one didn't act or dress a certain way, they were simply ignored or criticized. So that's where most of my issues come from. People have always said "you're so shy". It's not that I'm shy, I'm just afraid to say or do something that may reject me from the group. I feel things are getting better though. I go to uni by Pittsburgh and I feel like I can be whoever I want to be. It's so amazing how down-to-earth people are there. My first friends at uni are from the Pittsburgh area. They all approached me first and where I come from that is a odd thing for a stranger to do. I did a double take like "are you talking to me??? Really!??" I'm definitely going to be living in Western PA after graduation. I feel so at home there and my self-esteem is 100x better. -

GoNintendo, Projects and Birthday

Woohoo! My Shy Guy figurine was posted on! Pretty awesome hehe.

My next clay projects, by request, will be Elebits and Dr. Mario viruses. I have some other projects in mind that I can't wait to get started. I'm going to knit up some DS pouches with characters stitched in by using intarsia knitting. Hopefully I will get a day next week, though I will be busy with my course and my birthday is on the 2nd. My birthday = no work! I really can't go a day without doing something crafty...Well I suppose since no one will be around until the evening on Thursday I can make something during the day. Wish my birthday fell on a weekend so I can see everybody all day and we can actually do something outside while it's light out :(

I really don't want to turn 26. It's so weird when I was 16 it felt like forever before turning 18 and when I was 18 time went sooo slow before I turned 21. After 21 time just flew. Ah! -

Slow Etsy Shop

I opened my new shop June 9th. I'm itching for my first sale so bad. My items are getting views and some users have favorited a few, but why no sales yet? Is it because it's the summer holiday and people rather spend their cash on vacation? Are my prices too high?

I currently have 13 items. I'm planning on having some knit items up soon. Seems like people buy the strangest things so maybe I'll make something strange and see where it goes. ^_^

My shop can be found on the right of my blog. I just listed a couple items today. I also started my summer course today, Juvenile Delinquency. Doesn't seem like too much work. There are two quizzes each week, two discussions, and a couple videos to discuss. I was kinda lazy about it today...I blame Etsy!

*New Shop!*

My new shop on Etsy is called Kellwee. Check sidebar on the right :)
I've been busy coming up with new ideas and testing out different crafts to see what I can create. Will post more tonight or tomorrow. It's going to thunderstorm again!

Thursday, May 14, 2009


Yay! I have two items up on my SheepBum Etsy shop. is where all my felted and knit items will be and will be other items such as jewelry, polymer clay figures, magnets...not sure what else yet. Hope to get some sales once I put more items up. This is really my best hobby doing crafts. I looove video games, but crafting is so relaxing, though head shots are too hehe

Wow, it is storming pretty good outside right now. I miss a good thunderstorm. The electrical ones are the best. Who doesn't love those? I don't know what to really say in this post. I'm back from school, so some stress relief. Got back May 2nd. School still haunts me during the summer because of the worry of not being able to afford to go another year. I have one year left at University. I started school in 2003. I took time off after high school (2001) to work and figure out funds to get started, changed my major three times (Theatre - English - Bio - CompSci(IT)) geez! so yeah It's taking me a good time to graduate. Eek I better get off the computer. The storm is building up more. Yay for Friday tomorrow! <3

Somewhere out there

This song always cheers me up so much. I would love to get this movie on DVD. I use to watch it loads growing up.

This week is a busy one! Two presentations I'm so nervous about, but I know I'll nail them both and lots of studying for finals. Yay! Finals week! Heading home May 2nd. I'm a tad sad leaving school. I love this campus.

Blog a day - For the birds

It's hard to take time to write. I've been busy with school the past couple weeks and it's not going to slow down until May 1st. I have no clue how my grades are. I have a feeling not so good and thinking I will have to retake a course. This semester hasn't been the greatest for me mentally. It's definitely because where I'm living. I'm such a light sleeper so every little sound wakes me up. I use to be on top of my studies and got really good grades. Now I'm so tired and that causes me to be unmotivated. I will redeem myself next semester. I wish sunlight came through my window. It's always dark in here.

This morning I went to the dentist. Missed my first class, but I really needed to get cleaned up and that's the only time they had open. They were on me about braces. I've been wanting braces for a long long time just couldn't afford to get them. I made an appointment to see the orthodontists April 27th at 10:15. Will have to miss my first class. Won't be important anyway since it's the last day. I'm so nervous about it. I heard it's painful, but I'll tolerate it. Probably been through worse (Aunt Irma and Aunt Flo!). Hopefully I can get the ceramic kind so it's not so noticeable. If I were a bit younger I would go with purple/blue bands hehe. Guess we'll see what the Doc says.

Home ice game vs. Philadelphia Flyers tonight at 7!

Blog a day - 4, 5, 6

This week has been hell for me and I'm so happy it's over! Only two full weeks left of class then it's finals week. Can't wait until summer holiday. I have tons planned. Going to study A+, program some with JavaScript, refresh on UNIX, and hopefully get some jobs working on websites. Definitely going to work on my Etsy shop. Here are some things I'm thinking about making more of to put in my shop:

I mainly make toys, but I'll probably add some home goods too like candles and soaps. Check out the items I have sold by clicking the Etsy icon to the right of my blog.

YAY Pens won tonight 3-1! Malkin is player of the game!

Blog a Day - Day 3

Nothing much went on today. The snow has finally all melted. The only interesting thing I did was play with the DS and gerbils.

I can only get a still photo of Mistie when there is food in front of her. This is her first taste of a grape. Her little paws took hold of it after this photo was taken. She's so cute! She kept crawling up my back and sitting on my shoulder.

Gracie isn't as wired, though she gets scared easily. They are really becoming trusting of me now. I got them in November and I think they were about six weeks old then.

Blog a Day - Day 2

Yes! I made it before the day is over. What is up with the snow, yo? Madness! Class was for the dumps this morning and it dragged on for foreverrr. I had a Marketing exam I didn't do too swift with. I did good with the essay questions at least. Meh, I studied my butt off and did my best that's all that matters, right? and there was a group meeting at 2 that lasted until 430 or so.

So weee I'm uber happy tonight. I got my lovely coasters I ordered from BowieChick's Etsy shop. GO VISIT HER SHOP! She has one set set of coasters left. I was tempted to buy the other set because I was so torn between the two, but someone else should enjoy the awesomeness. Decisions are not my friend! Ooh! The Pens won! 6-4 vs. Tampa Bay Lightning. YES clinched playoff spot for them.

Hehe my dad sent me a picture of my little doggy Beemer. He got his hair cut. See the before and after photo.

Totally different looking dog. He's part Dachshund (his mother) and Shi-Tzu (neighbor's dog).

I think that is all that happened in my day, so I'm going to finish my cherry cola and go make out with my pillow! Nite world!

Blog a Day - Day 1

I saw some bloggers doing a blog a day and I thought that maybe it's a good time for me to start. I don't know if I'll be able to blog everyday, but I'll give it a go. Seems like a good idea anyway. I have kept a journal in the past, but it will be nice to share my thoughts/findings to the world. I'm not the most funny or exciting person, but it would be cool to have some followers.

Yesterday was Palm Sunday. This is the sight I saw out my window when I opened the blinds. Four Bambies were out there:

So nice having a mini forest out my window. Saw a groundhog scurrying around as well.

Oh yay it's snowing now. It's friggin April! I miss the smell flowers, the sun and warm air! I have to go study for my exam I have tomorrow. Day 1 post not so exciting.

Men are from Mars

The Relationship

(c) by Dave Barry

Let's say a guy named Roger is attracted to a woman named Elaine. He asks her out to a movie; she accepts; they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else.

And then, one evening when they're driving home, a thought occurs to Elaine, and, without really thinking, she says it aloud: "Do you realize that, as of tonight, we've been seeing each other for exactly six months?"

And then there is silence in the car. To Elaine, it seems like a very loud silence. She thinks to herself: Geez, I wonder if it bothers him that I said that. Maybe he's been feeling confined by our relationship; maybe he thinks I'm trying to push him into some kind of obligation that he doesn't want, or isn't sure of.

And Roger is thinking: Gosh. Six months...

Rubik's Cube

I'm getting quicker with the cube. I could never solve this when I was younger. I have a Pac-Man cube that is messed up. Now I can fix it once I find it in my mom's attic.

hehe I'm so going to kick Devin's butt in time ^_~
