If you need me, I’m over here in 1st grade making myself a rawk collection. First grade speller of the year, yo! In my Physical/Earth Science class, we were given the assignment to collect 10 rocks, take pictures of them, and then answer a bunch of questions about them, i.e., what the rock’s official name is, what the minerals inside of the rock are, etc., etc., etc. You know, because I’m a geologist now. So far, I picked up an ugly grey rock and determined his name would be Fred. How much credit do I get for that there rock-naming extravaganza? Pebbles and Bam-Bam seem fitting names too. Flintstone? Too on the nose? As for the minerals inside? Beats the hayfever out of me… I do know none of these rocks I done collected contain any sort of chocolate whatsoever. It’s due tonight at 11:59 p.m., so I best start making crap up. Any geologists out there? 😛
In other less 1st-grade-like news, I’ve determined that I need a clean slate/fresh start over in MyFitnessPal land. It is a good tool to know where I stand each day calorie and exercise wise, and I basically haven’t been using it as consistently as I should be. I use it once a week to figure out my menu for the week, but then I sort of forget about it for the remainder of the week and pretend I’m a svelte 150 pounds whilst eating a container of Halloween Oreos… as IF! So, I erased all the pounds I had previously lost… those 185 pounds were a person ago… and I’m starting at 0 pounds lost as if I’m a newbie at this whole thing. I also deleted 250 friends (no offense if you happen to be reading this and I deleted you). I only deleted because the thought of nearing 400 friends to try to support was wayyyyy too overwhelming a task for me to take on. Plus, I don’t have the time… and that also means I have to be greedy and self-centered and take care of myself first. I’m good at that usually… so this shouldn’t take much of an adjustment.
If that makes you angry, throw rawks at me… but make sure when you throw them they have a name label on them. I ran out of names 2 Bam-Bams ago.
We had a super orange 6th birthday par-tay for one of my favorite buddies, Corbin! If you couldn’t tell orange is his favorite color!
Happy Birf-day, Buddy!
