March Madness

March has only just begun and I was already preparing myself for the inevitable malarkey coming my way since February 29th. It's not all bad though - February was the shortest yet most annoying month for me. Packages stolen, debit card fraud, missed opportunities . . if I were any other kind of person I'd be seriously depressed right now but what's the point?

One thing has helped lift my spirits: The Hunger Games. The book was suggested to me not because of the movie (which, btw, I have already made plans to pre-order tickets for), but because someone else who isn't to read thought I would like it. Oh, and do I ever.

Is it bad that I contemplated calling out of work this week so I could try to finish a book in one day? I don't think I've ever hated working more. If I were in college I'd just skip my class or call in sick. For some reason money isn't as important as finding out how a book ends to me. Someone needs to get her priorities in order.

Other weekday pick-me-uppers:

• Nice weather! It was nearly 70 degrees on Wednesday! You know what that means. . . I can wear my whore-ish clothes again :) Or not. Since it's still technically winter. But a girl can dream.

• A couple of friends who I haven't spoken to in a while actually reached out to me. Shout out to you if you know who you are ;)

A new layout! Do ya like it? I'm going to go ahead and thank Courtney for doing it for me! I still have some small tweaks I want to make, that I'm too lazy to do right now but by Sunday we'll be good to go.

• Oh, and this


How has your week been going? Did this cupcake photo help?

  1. Yes, the cupcake photo helped out tons! I just ordered the hunger games after much resistance. Everytime I see the movie trailer I get excited because usually the book is a thousand times better than the movie. Hasn't the weather been amazing around here? And next week all 60s?! Yes, thank you.

  4. Holy crap, Nhya. I love your new layout! It's so much cleaner and neater. Not that your old layout was bad by any means. It was quite distinctive and I enjoyed it. But there's no doubt that this is much easier on the eyes.

    I read The Hunger Games just after Christmas. I know people are calling them the 'new Twilight', but I feel they're so much better. Much darker, edgier...and I love novels about futuristic dystopian societies. I won't be seeing the movie, though. I'd hate for them to ruin the books for me (yeah, I'm one of those people).

  9. My detox was actually a juice fast. If you ever have the chance, watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead! Its a great documentary that will get you interested. I started Tuesday, and you saw my weight, Wed I went down to 127, now I am 123 lbs. All I did was drink freshly home made juice full of veggies and fruits. My work out right now isnt too tough because I want to shed all my fat, so I walk/run at least 6 miles a day. Thursday I walked & ran for 9 miles. 9 miles means I also have a lot of energy from this juice. You'd be surprised! But ill blog about it so keep updated!

    Btw I CANNOT wait to see The Hunger Games when it comes out to theatre! Tickets are on sale nowwww!!

  14. Aw, when I read the "credit card fraud" and other mishaps that happened I felt so bad! But it's amazing that you're so strong. And you're lethargy is shared by many. Especially me. I love being lazy. I was thinking of including it in my hobbies? haha. Anyway, the cupcake photo made me smile AND MY STOMACH GROWL. :)

    I hope your April is amazing.

    Love,
