Tomorrow I'll post a New Years Day post. It will be all about my big awesome plans and hopes and dreams for the new year! That should include some condo updates (some unexpected things have happened... All very good news!). But tonight I'm just going to post a little last post of 2011. I can't believe how quick the year went! Hmmm... I think that it's been a growing year for me. Lots of things have happened this year and I hope that lots more things happen next year as I continue to make my way in this world! I feel like this year was a big stepping stone in my life type of year. It's definitely been FULL of big changes for me. I posted my music for sale online for the first time ever (and just posted my second song)... I moved out on my own to my own apartment! And will soon be moving to my own first home/condo purchase! And then one of the biggest things is that I feel the presence of God in my life and guiding my life more than ever before. Those are all pretty big changes for me! But they are all good. I feel like 2012 will be an awesome year to come. And I know with all that has happened and all that will happen... no matter what God will be there guiding me along in some way or another.
So yea I'm just chilling waiting for the clock to strike midnight. I'm thinking that my plan is to just work on music and more of that comedy-mation stuff... It's all coming along... there should be new music and animation up soon. Then maybe (if I'm feeling less sleepy than I am right now... come on coffee kick in!) around 11:30 I'll walk down and see which pub/bar down the street has the least amount of whoaaaaaa crazyness going on... if none of them are chill then I will just come back and hang out here and celebrate midnight with a toast of some red wine that I have left. I opened a bottle back in november and I'm still working on it. I have these nifty little vacu vin things that vacuum seal it up and it SAYS a few weeks is all it lasts for but I swear it keeps for months!
Well if there is a chill bar then I'll get myself one of the more special crafty yummy beers and celebrate with a toast at midnight with anyone around.
Either way I'll just kinda go to bed shortly after midnight.
I'm sure lots of people tonight are at lots of super fantastic New Years parties and celebrations ranging from staying at home playing board games to paying hundreds of dollars for extravagant ticket holder only events in cities.
No matter how anyone is celebrating... I hope everyone is safe! And gets home A-OK safe and sound to their own bed.
So happy New Years Eve everyone and stay safe out there!
Let me start by saying I've been making microwave popcorn since back in the day. Actually... my super microwave skills go back to when I was about 4 or 5. Oh yes... I got some SERIOUS microwaving skills, but well, they didn't start out so good.
Let me explain. So when I was a wee little one... a wee little pants mcgee... I wasn't allowed to use the microwave because I wasn't old enough to know how it works. "Not old enough!?!?" I would say. Well, I guess soooo... I mean I was the youngin one. Always not old enough in comparison to my older siblings. I mean I was also never tall enough to go on most of the roller-coaster rides at theme parks when everyone else in the group was.... soooooo I'd have to hang out on the bench and watch everyone else. I learned to bring a book along... it was either read. Or I'd have to just go ride the frogs. So i'd be sitting there riding some little frog around and around in a circle all day while everyone else was riding the MEGA MASSIVE 12 BILLION LOOP 70 THOUSAND FEET TALL 90 THOUSAND FOOT DROP... AWESOMENESS OF PURE AWESOMENESS
ROLLER COASTER OF SUPER AMAZINGNESSS!!!!!
(the roller coaster went underground)
And here I am on the frogs. Weeeeeeeee
Ok that's the wrong kind of frog coaster. Let me look around some more...
Hmmm getting closer... ok just pretend like i'm the mouse. And that frog is the frog coaster. Let me google image a little bit more...
Umm what? How does someone sleep on that bed!?!!?!
Ok well you know what I mean those little tea cup esk rides... the kiddie ride.
OK annnnnnnnwaaaaaays... back to the microwave story...
SO there I am maybe 5 years old and well I said to myself "We'll seeeeee about THAT! Can't use the microwave because I'm too young! Hmmph"... so I woke up SUPER early one morning before anyone else and made my way to the kitchen to make some oatmeal in the microwave.
Now I'd been sneak peaking when other people were using the microwave and taking notes. Well, not REALLY taking notes... But I pretty much figured it all out. So I pour in my ingredients and get it all set up and ready. I put it in my little plastic little kid bowl.
And put it in the microwave.
I watched in awe at my glorious achievement. Go oatmeal in the microwave... GOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Then something went wrong... very wrong.
Should the microwave be sparking? Whoa crap... It's sparking! And making odd noises... So I pulled open the door.
Ooooooops. I left the metal spoon in the plastic bowl.
And it melted through the bowl.
Well... I've gotten much better since then. I'm now a super microwave guru dude.
So today I figured out a genius way to pop almost ALL the corn in a microwave popcorn bag. Or as they are called. Kernels. SO here's my way of popping:
I put the bag in and set it for a higher number... like 5 minutes. The bag says to only do it for 2. But I set it for much higher. Then my next step is to let it pop for a little while. After it seems like about half the bag is all popped up... I take it out and open it. Maybe a little more than half.
Now my next step is to then take the open bag (Careful it's hot! Don't burn yourself) and get a big serving spoon.
Using that spoon scoop out the freshly popped popcorn but keep the bag tilted upwards. SO that any of the un-popped kernels then fall down to the bottom of the bag.
Try to scoop out as much as possible and then roll up the end of the bag that was opened and put it back in and hit go again to start the timer. It will probably be at maybe 3 ish or 3 minutes and 30 seconds left.
Next step is to let it pop some more. Don't forget to shake the bag up after each time you take it out of the microwave. Well I let is get it's popping action some more until I see the bag fluff up again. Then I do the same thing where I take the popped stuff out while holding the bag upright... scoop the popped corn and let the unpopped fall down.
Then put it back in for a little while longer.
I just basically repeat this until there's only a little bit of unpopped kernels. Some kernels will just refuse to pop no matter HOW long you heat them for!
Again careful since it will be hot! I generally let the bag sit in the microwave after I stop it each time for a good 5 or 10 seconds.
And there you have it. Now you know more about my history with the microwave and my new popcorn method. Oh... And my roller coaster dilemma as a little kid.
I uploaded a new single to CD baby! So anyone who wants to just simply leave a review or even if you have an extra dollar to download the single... that would be sweeet! I would be very thankful for any help.
Here's the link to my artist page on CD Baby: http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/KennyWest
Annnnd... here's the cover art I made for the song...
I used one of the photos I took over the summer and then I applied some photoshop effects to it and texted over with my name and the single name. I think it came out pretty well.
Tonight I played the open mic in Ardmore at the Milkboy Coffee. It's a good open mic. It's well run and the host is awesome. As well the sound is great. I love playing on that stage. It's a very spacious and great venue. Everyone there is also super nice and talented!
I decided to sign up first. So I went on and did my thing and then just relaxed and watched the rest of the acts. This place was PACKED tonight! It's not normally that packed but there was just a lot of people there. It was fun. I enjoyed it. I'm going to try and go again next week. But I'll play different songs. I played Wish Upon A Hero and A Place That Fits. Everyone seemed to be really into it.
So yea it was just packed and there weren't enough seats for everyone. So this kid was kinda trying to get up close but he kept having to move back because staff were kinda like oh you can't sit there or stand here or there. He kinda was just really into it. I had a seat right up front so I decided to give him my seat. It was just this big comfy chair seat. The kind you sorta sink into and can pretty much fall asleep in. Well... I looked over at the chair about 30 minutes after I gave him the seat... he totally fell asleep. haha it was just one of those moments that made my night. Ha, just loved it. So he was happy I'm sure.
I also saw some friends there I hadn't seen in a while so it was good to say hello to my fellow open mic-er friends and just to enjoy the evening.
Anywho it was fun. Open mic's are always a good time.
So I spent SOME of my night tonight watching stuff online. Most of the stuff were funny videos. Some of them were funny cat videos. I also found a video of 2 otters holding hands. It was one of those videos that makes you go "Awwwwwwwww".
Yea that video. I'm PROBABLY late to the game on this one. I know I'm like the last person to see this video. But it's just soooooo freakin awesome! haha... I enjoyed it.
I watched it 4 times.
Ok so then I was searching around for other funny and or cute things. And I found 2 other sites that made my night...
So site #1 is highly addictive and I can't stop reading these "Meme" thingys...
Seriously, though, don't click on it. Unless you want to be sucked into reading EVERY SINGLE ONE! You don't be able to stop. I couldn't.
Well after I read every single one on there. I went back searching for more. I found this site...
Again... you won't be able to stop reading until you've read back every single post.
It's just what the name says... it's cute overload. Seriously. I've never seen soooooooooooooooo much cuteness in one place!
And that's what I did with some of my evening. I also worked on new music, and organized things and tackled a massive box of unsorted paperwork. And made tea... and ate nachos. And ate a cookie I had. And watched things in my netflix instant queue.
I also practiced a few songs that I want to play at the milkboy open mic tomorrow night. I can't wait!
Oh soooo back to the quickmeme and the cuteoverload... I figure I'll share my favorite from each site. So here's my favorite from quickmeme:
Actually basically ALL of the success kid ones are my favorites (although some of them are a little over the top)... http://www.quickmeme.com/Success-Kid/
Buuuut if I had to pick one...
it's that one "Song ends... right as destination is reached." I LOVE when that happens. Although the "Mom took my nose... got it back" one is a close second.
Hmmm ok ANNNND... of the cuteoverload... this one is the best:
That cat is wearing a raindeer hat!!!!!
I didn't know they had cat hats.
Although this picture.... yep.
The name of the post/cat is kinda weird. I'm not sure how to pronounce it. If you click on the site... you'll seee what I mean.
Anywho soooo that's been my night. I hope everyone has an awesome tuesday and I'll be sure to post a little blog tomorrow about how the open mic goes!
So this is just a part B to the previous post about Christmas and remembering what's important and what Christmas is all about. So while it's very important to remember about Christmas being a celebration of the miracle birth of Jesus that took place in Bethlehem it's also about family time and time to gather with people. This post is just a thought mostly about how I really have noticed that families come in all different kinds of ways. It's interesting how even people who aren't related can be just as close or even closer than people who are! So for the past few christmas's I've spent the day or morning part with family. Or phone calling family if they aren't local or that sorta thing. Then the evening part of Christmas is spent with some of my mom's close friends and we all just kind of have dinner together and hang out and watch some TV just whatever is on and just chat. It's pretty chill.
Well tonight we were watching Field of Dreams. And it came to that part at the end where the main character played by Kevin Costner asks his dad if he wants to play catch. And it's just really like one of those scenes that just pulls at your heart. It's a real teary eyed scene. Well I kinda teared up a little bit... Anywho here's the scene...
Ok well after it was over I looked around and everyone else was super teared up.
And then I just kinda felt all connected to everyone for a moment like... wow... we all just got REALLY emotional over that scene. I think we just had a moment in this room.
It made me feel like I guess Christmas is also about just spending time with people who even if they aren't related to you could almost be considered family because you have known them for a LONG LONG time... or even maybe almost your whole life. And... yea it was just kinda like this is what Christmas is also about... coming together with people and watching an old movie you've seen too many times to count but still having that last scene get you... grab you and make you tear up. No matter how many times we do christmas each year it's just still magical. Just like that scene still makes us all tear up.
So, that was my one thought. My other thought I had was...
Ok well right before that scene... There was also a small bit of dialogue right before that one scene started. Where James Earl Jones' character is going to go into the cornfield... and Ray (Costner) says...
"What's in it for me?"
After he was told he wasn't invited.
Then the baseball player dude AKA Shoeless Joe Jackson played by Ray Liotta says...
"Is this why you did this? For you? I think you better stay here."
I guess I was thinking about that as well. And to try and tie that in with the family thing. It's kind of like... Costner's character was doing all the things he was being told (voices, or signs shown) and thinking that it was supposed to benefit him some how. I think that in life we get signs or signals from God that show us to do things that we don't understand at the time. And that they might eventually benefit us in some way... kind of like how in the movie Ray gets to see his father again...
But, I think as well that there isn't always a benefit for us. I think sometimes we are supposed to do things that are meant to benefit others. And that we might actually never get anything in return from it. But that we are supposed to do those things anyways.
I guess... If I were to think of my ultimate biggest fault at least reflecting on this past year... but maybe just in general too... is that I feel like I've been doing that. I've been saying that line... "what's in it for me?" Most especially when I say "When do I get to find love." But love is about 2 people... not just one. And I didn't get that... at ALL. It's not just me finding someone but someone finding me as well.
I feel almost ashamed. Nearly everything I do when it's done even if it's for others... I feel good about it but I also feel like ok... I should get repaid for this some how. And... I think after watching that scene I've figured out that's wrong.
I feel like God is saying that line to me today...
"Is this why you did this? For you?" Like he was speaking to me. It just humbled me... I feel... yea just ashamed mostly.
Really I should be doing everything for the glory of God and not for a what's in it for me mode. I should be doing things to help family, friends, community... and I mean yes take time for myself... but I should never ask what's in it for me. I should just accept what is given to me by God... and know that is what I'm supposed to have as for me. I should do things... but not in it for me.
Ok maybe like... from what I've been learning from both reading and going to church maybe I can think about it like this... When Jesus was up on the cross... and PAYING for our sins... he wasn't asking... "What's in it for me?"...
He was doing it for everyones sins. He was dying for me! To pay the way for my sins. But not just me... for everyone.
So God calls on us to do things... and sometimes we don't know why or where it's leading... and sometimes it's not for us... but there is a reason that we must do things that we must do. And I definitely think it's all about something greater than anything I'll ever know.
Hmmm... yea. I can't help but think how much my outlook on life has completely changed in the last year. It's just so weird. To look myself... and sort of think about things I've said to people or things I've done and I just...
I hang my head in shame. It's really really hard to not think those thoughts "What's in it for me?". It's really hard to just stay here and think... and try to become the person that I know I want to be... but... I keep trying. I just keep on trying till I get it.
OK well that's sorta what's been going on in my head this evening about Christmas time. Anywho... so I'm going to relax with the rest of my evening and maybe find something on netflix or work on a couple of creative things. So I wish everyone a very peaceful and restful holiday.
You know what's really weird though... I just thought of this after writing this post... I don't like to watch sports. But I really like watching sports movies. How weird is that?
Like some of my favorite movies are sports movies:
The Sandlot... Field of Dreams... and of course... The Mighty Ducks. It makes very little sense.
Today is Christmas! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday. And as well a wonderful holiday season. I was just going to post a quick little Merry Christmas blog of a couple sentences... but I wanted to tack on a little extra thought.
This morning I went to the church service at 11am and the service was very nice. The songs were great and it was just very nice to have a service on Christmas morning. I think that since Christmas falls on a Sunday this year and coincides with the sunday church services it was extra special. That's what the pastor pointed out in the sermon today and what I just wanted to talk about...
So I guess most of my life I've really thought of Christmas as a time for family and friends and gift giving and receiving and food. And those are all very good things! But what the pastor spoke about was what saying Merry Christmas really means. And I think that it's important to really keep in mind what it means. It means the miracle birth of God in flesh. It's a celebration of Christ. I think some of that is lost in what Christmas seems to represent now as a celebration of a holiday. It's really important to keep in mind that Christmas is WAY more than just gifts and friends and cookies and The Muppets Christmas Carol.
Christmas is a celebration of the birth of a savior. I've been thinking about that since church this morning and really thinking about how my view on Christmas is just way different this year than it was any previous year.
Anywho that's my thought... just to keep that in mind about what Christmas really means. I know it can mean something different for everyone and that's cool but as the sermon this morning was about it really is a celebration of a magnificent miracle! And that while toys and candy canes are also good... just don't lose what the big meaning is!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas morning and Christmas Eve last night. I hope everyone is relaxing and recharging and enjoying the time off that they get and that everyone got the most awesome gifts that they wished for.
Love and joy.
I've kind of realized that life is made up of communities. All of the people that I know come from specific communities. Or I guess I could call them circles of friends. Or like the lion king song circle of life.
Kinda like that. So if I think back... I've belonged to a lot of groups of people... I mean let's see...
Family would start it. Then there's schooling. So preschool, school, post school... etc. Or elementry, middle, high, college... I think I could also say that being part of after-school activities is also like a community, so when I was in boy scouts.
Then there's the different places of works... teaching skiing... working at camp... working at my current job.
There's also church... so I meet people through that. Then I think technically open mics are kind of like a community. So I meet people through that. Then there's people I've met through online community. Or just friends of friends who then become my friends too! Or maybe I become their friends.
I guess the last thing I can think of is living communities. So meeting people where I live. I haven't met a lot of people where I'm at now but I have met a couple. I just met one of the neighbors for my new place that I'm going to be moving to. The new place feels a lot more like a smaller tight knit community.
So i really think I'm going to be interacting more with the people where I'll be moving to. As well they have things like association meetings for the whole condo and all the people that live there. So I'll get to have a say in what goes on where I live. That's kinda neat! I don't mind community living. That's how camp is. But it's also how the dorms were in college. I enjoyed both settings so hopefully living in this new community will be fun too.
Part of me wants to live in the middle of the woods in the middle of no where but another part of me likes the setting of being close to others in a shared community. I think there are ups and downs to both living situations. But I find that the best mix is to have your own space... but to me in a community setting. So have people around when you want to socialize but then be able to take space to your own when you need it. Sometimes it's good to have both!
So that's what I was thinking about tonight... that idea of communities. I think a lot of our living situations growing up are based around living in small community groups together. Sometimes too I wonder how that has shaped me as a person. I know that being in the work community I've been in for the past 6 years has definitely had a super positive influence on me. As well more recently attending church and being part of that community has also most definitely had a super positive influence. Of course camp is just awesome and then my family is always very helpful. School is cool... although I didn't really have a good time in highschool... skiing I loved... so yea I think it's all been pretty beneficial and helpful to me in this little journey of life that i'm on. I hope that my new community when it happens in a few months will be just as positive of an influence on me as all the other places I've known.
So that's my thought for today/tonight. Communities that I've belonged to and how they have shaped me. I guess some other communities that I know of are maybe hanging out at coffee shops. Or meet up groups are kind of like communities too! I guess even the gym could be like one. Or maybe volunteering together. So people who do habitat for humanity and such. Those can be communities. I suppose even sports teams are like communities too. Clubs... as well.
What sort of communities does anyone else belong to? Are they positive influences or negative influences in your life? Did you learn anything valuable from being part of that community? If given the chance even for a short period of time would you return to that community again?
I've decided to post about my lunch time noodle bowl. I'm kind of in love with it. So I'm going to share the secret of the roughly 1 dollar noodle bowl.
Ok... so the idea is this... When I used to live at home I had very little expenses and I would spend money left and right on random stuffs. But I would also just be lazy about lunch and go eat at Wawa or Chipotle Mexican Grill or Panera Bread. While those places are yummy they are also expensive. When I finally order up and go to swipe the card it's always like 7 or 8 or 9 or 10 bucks! Crazy. I'm kinda wishing I found this whole noodle bowl thing years ago. It's just super awesome. It's just as filling and every bit as tasty as going to those places to eat (ok almost as tasty, Chipotle is awesome, and also Wawa is too... and Panera is good as well...) but it's only 1 dollar! Which means it allows me to save some dough to put towards other things (like music equipment, or car repairs, or rent and my soon to be mortgage payment and such).
1 dollar noodle bowl has a little bit of a history. Basically it was inspired by my boss who noodles up most of the time with some sort of noodle product from Costco or one of those wholesale places. He buys like 50 packs of them and then just brings those in and keeps them in the office... It got me thinking about the idea of cup o noodle or those other more expensive fancy noodle products... well cup of noodle is actually less than a dollar but I don't like cup of noodle. The problem with cup of noodle is it's kinda not exactly super tasty and I'm told it's not all that great for you. I always feel hungry again super quick after I eat one. I do really like that idea of those super cheap noodle bowls that you can buy with plastic containers and all but then I didn't like how they have only noodles in them and don't have anything else like actual chunks of beef or chicken or real vegitables and all around they just didn't taste that good and also the containers were disposable generating trash... etc. etc. So they are good for a quick meal but I'm not sure if they are the best solution for a quick lunch time meal.
So I set out to create my own 1 dollar noodle bowl from scratch... but make it more filling and also taste better... AND make it maybe even a little bit healthy for me. I had some goals... those cheap noodle grocery store lunches lack two things: Protein, and veggies. They are good because you can just store them in a drawer or desk and add water whenever. I thought it would be A-OK to just keep something in the fridge and then add water.
So first thing I needed was a reusable cheap container. I found that in the way of these rubber maid things called "Take Alongs". I use the deep square one.
I bought like 10 of them... here's why...
My second thing to find was now some sort of protein. I thought well how is the best way to work this? The first thing I did was chop up a bunch of cooked chicken but the chunks were too big. I tried steak, but it was tough... stir-frying my meats wouldn't work. Tofu and shrimps worked great. Shrimps come in big pre-cooked bags and I can just toss a few in. Tofu comes in a block and then I can just chop it in 4's. So one 2 dollar block of tofu gets 4 noodle bowls. So after some googling/asking around I tried out slow cooking for hours and let it fall apart. Then I take that and split it up into several different bowls. This works great for beef/chicken/pork.
Ok great... so now we're cooking! Sweetness. So I can slow cook beef (this kinda tastes freaking awesome), chicken (also good) and pork (good too). Then Tofu just dices raw and shrimps are already frozen so I just leave those. Another alternative is chick peas or garbonzo beans (those are the same thing I think... I just like saying the word garbonzo... gaaaaarbonnnnzo!).
If I cook something I take one of my 10 containers I bought and I divide up the final cooked thing into smaller portions and then freeze that in individual bowls. Now I have a noodle bowl premade and ready to be prepared for the night before work... well... almost.
I needed more than just protein and a bowl. So my next thing was to add veggies. So I went to the freezer section of my local grocery store. There are SOOOOOOOO many choices for frozen veggies! AND they are super cheap too. Only a couple bucks or not even for a bag. Each bag will probably make 5 to 10 bowls. It depends on which one I get.
Well now I've got a container, protein, and veggies to add nutritional value to my noodle bowl. What else did I need? Spices! Spices aren't super cheap. But they last a LONG time. A little dash in a dish.... or a sprinkle or two here or there in my noodle bowl makes things taste different every day. I've got about 20 different combinations of spices. I also purchased sauces. So I can do hot or sweet or spicy or soy or teriyaki. Or whatever.
Well the last ingredient is... yep... noodles! What kinda noodle bowl would it be if it didn't have noodles! It would be noodless or something. So I can do pretty much any kind of pasta or noodle I want. Those regular old long thin pasta noodles are the cheapest. But I can pretty much put any type of noodle. Rice noodles, or lo mein... or any of the pastas. Pretty much anything goes. Even just regular rice! Or I like Orzo... It's like rice shaped pasta.
So that's kinda how it works. Basically I freeze up the protein, cook the pasta the night before throw in some frozen veggies and spices... and then throw in the freezer.
Then I throw it in my lunch bag when I go off to work. To cook I just add water, heat for 3 mins in the microwave... stir... and another 3. Let it cool a little and then chow down! I've been eating this now regularly for a little while and I think I'm gonna stick with the lunch time noodle bowl.
The great part is I can pretty much keep thinking of endless combinations of noodle bowls to create! So I don't seem to be getting bored of eating the same thing over and over again each day. I can always change up any of the 4 ingredients to keep things fresh and interesting! Different noodles (types or shapes). There's always regular and whole wheat pasta. Or I can do different proteins. Or I can do different veggies. Or different spices and sauces!
Every day is new and interesting for lunch! And it's only about 1 dollar! About 50 cents for the protein, 10 cents for the pasta/rice noodles, 10 cents for the spice/sauce, and 20 or 30 cents for the veggies. I guess I have to pay for the actual bowl itself and the water to clean it and the energy to cook it all... ok so maybe 1.50 or 2 dollars. It's still WAY cheaper than going to get food out somewhere. And even the caf at work is 6 bucks. Sometimes we eat there but I used to do that every day! 6 bucks for year can add up! Or saving 4 or 5 or 8 bucks for a year can also add up to big savings!
My favorite part of the noodle bowl is that I can be creative with it and always think of new combinations of things to put in it! So now you know all about the 1 dollar lunchtime noodle bowl. Feel free to give it a try and experiment away. It took me a while to get all the combinations of things right. But now I'm good to go. So, as my boss says before he eats his noodle lunch... "it's time to noodle up!"
Ok I'm I wasn't going to post tonight. But I just wanted to wish everyone a happy wednesday. I hope it is very awesome and fun and great and wonderful for everyone. Its about 2am and I'm just getting to sleep. Although I did kinda pass out for an hour or so earlier as a nap.
All the documents I had to gather I had to print out. Although I rarely ever print anything and this was a couple hundred sheets of printing! So I decided to hit up microcenter and just pick up the cheapest laser black and white printer they had. The one I got works pretty well. I wanted to get something with no frills USB and duplexing support and that was it. This printer did exactly what I wanted to do. I was up and running in few minutes after I got it all unpacked and out of the box. There's always a thousand and one pieces of tape to remove from things... and orange tab things and all that.
Oh... actually this is kinda cool... Or at least I think so... I had taken a manilla envelope out and labeled it up with my labeling organization system that I just talked about previously. WELL you know how the whole point of the system is that I can remove labels from containers and interchange those if need be? Yep... I had to do that! So the manilla envelops I have are 2 different sizes. I decided the smaller one would suffice and labeled that up. But when I got done printing and stapling everything... it wouldn't fit!
Sooooooo... I just peeled the label off that envelope and stuck it on a bigger sized one! And then stuffed the papers inside and I'm there... allllll done.
woooooo... so overall a very productive but LONG day.
Tomorrow hopefully will have some napping happening in the evening.
Outline of my day will be:
Wake up... feed self.... feed cats.
Work... but only a half day!
Then lunch... and meet with mortgage guy
Then back to feed cats again...
Feed me again.
then maybe work on music and stuff.
Ok well I'm going to get a little sleep in before I do all that stuff I just said. So goodnight everyone and happy and awesome and productive wednesday! May all your wishes come true. Or something good like that.
