Trying to act like the cynical, beeyotch won't work

For some reason I want attention. Guess cause I'm bored. I usually could care less and yet I want it. It's not like I don't get complimented, it's just that I don't do anything.

I need to do something before school starts. Why can't school start already. Feel like I've lost some brain cells. Just a little over a month left. Hopefully, my brain will be spared.

So dramatic, and for what. I never use any of it. Maybe I should try theater again. It was fun in middle school, high school, not at all. Oh, I know why, I don't like people looking at me. That's stupid.

Lists of things to do this week:

Get some rays, oh, sunscreen first
Buy some mascara
Look into a sonicare flexcare toothbrush
Check bank account
Work on a thank you letter for scholarship providers
Talk to mentor
Knock someone upside their head, and say it was an accident.
Get your lazy behind out of bed
Read your library books and turn them in on time this week
Belly dance
Practice you singing and acting (I suck, but I love it.)
Work on collage
Practice prayer; attempt to read some more of bible
Work on scholarships

I need to stop myself

Every week, no, every day, I decide on something, and never commit to it. It is so frustrating. How do I expect to reach any of my goals. I'm not lucking. Although, I have won more contest so far this year, than I have over the past 3 years.

Funny how when I decide I don't believe in luck, I get "lucky". No, I haven't laid up with anyone. I've simply been getting things without expecting them. It would be nice to get rid of all this belly fat, but that actually requires work. Something I know almost nothing about.

This week I was supposed to work on staying off my computer with the exception of scholarship work. Now, I'm on it, on yet another blog. Which is pointless really. I don't even have a journal, yet I'm writing a blog post.

I must be bored. I need to go out. I need to feel the sun on my back. I need to live a less dull life.

My Diet Lacks Vitamin D

The other day I was talking to my mother about taking vitamins. As usual she had something smart to say. Her remark was, 'Some people say that vitamins make them hungrier. They eat more when they're on them.'

I didn't want to be disrespectful. Although anytime I say something, it nearly always is considered disrespectful. So I didn't bother asking were she got these "facts" from. Regardless of what you say with my mother, she's always right, and no matter how wrong you think she is, it's right to her.

For years I begged her to buy me vitamins. The cute little Flintstones ones. Man I wanted those so bad. Now what's the point.

I can't remember the last time I ate an orange. As a matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I ate anything that contained Vitamin D. No wonder I've been in such a pissy mood lately. I need the sun. Don't have any sunscreen yet. Oh well, I'm not going to hurt least I hope not.

Some people really ask for a butt whooping. (No, I'm not referring to my mother. She'd beat my behind)

Amazingly the Story Siren is offering yet again, another amazing contest.

Here's a list of just a few things she's giving away to one winner:

Initiation by Susan Fine (PB)
The Espressologist by Kristina Springer (ARC)

Ballads of Suburbia boomark

I probably haven't told you this, but another hobby of mine is collecting bookmarks. I would have entered if she was just giving those away.

I didn't say 'Lucky' winner because I'm not a lucky person and didn't want to jinx it. So the best to the one winner.

Super Cool Books Contest - Ends Sat., Aug. 1st, 2009, midnight ET. (she can and will if she feels like it, stop the contest at any time.) Extra entries: Yes

*US addresses only. If you are International, and have a friend in the US who will accept it, then you can enter. That's the only restriction I see.

Really want a Kindle

When it comes to contests. Which if you haven't noticed is one of my main hobbies; I'm usually too late, or don't have the means to enter them. Like this one they are having over at Engadget, who have partnered with Amazon and Adafruit Industries to give you the chance to win your own personalized Kindle.

It's pretty much an etch-a-sketch on the back of it. The Kindle is something I've been coveting (know I shouldn't) for months now. My mother refuses to let me purchase books, because I don't have any room for them. I am going to get ride of some, eventually.

Now, I read the entire article. It isn't showing me any love. I'm an artist, but I guess I don't have the means to enter. The entries have to be saved in EPS or Al format, black and white only, and composed of strictly vector graphics and all fonts converted to curves. Before yesterday, I had never heard - that I can recall - of any of that. I'm not a graphic artist.

I scoured the World Wide Web trying to find a free resource. I came across Inkscape, but it only saves in AVG format. Even if I found something the contest ends in a week.

All you graphic artists or people with the means should enter.

If you know of a free program that will let me save in EPS or Al format, tell me. Thanks and Good Luck (not that I believe in that). I believe in you all, though.


Design Your Own Kindle (and win it) - Ends Friday, July 24, 200, at 11:59 ET
Extra Entries: No, you can only enter once.
