you live, you learn, you crash, you burn

I'm not perfect... I'm continuously learning. Life is funny... there are rapid changes at every corner. "Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the Seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit" -Napoleon Hill. I couldn't agree with that more. I am not proud of some things I have done or said in the past. I have hurt some people or made people feel uncomfortable... were all human and we all learn from our mistakes. So to those of you I have hurt and upset... please know I am not a malicious person, I am just a person in process. I learn new things every day. I have been so blessed to have people in my life who teach me a lot about myself. New York is not the easiest of places so far. I admit it... but with every struggle, there's something to learn. Kind of going through that after college crisis already just 3 days after graduation. Well... 3 months of being in New York... and I know I shouldn't get so down on myself... so I am picking up the pieces and getting stronger day by day. Have to be a big girl now : ) Put on those pull ups. haha. Graduation was a beautiful celebration and brought up a lot of emotions that I can't possibly explain. If you have seen UP, you will know when I say I needed to start a new adventure. I don't know what the future holds, but I am only 22 once and who knows how long I will live here in the Big Apple. So I'm going to take advantage of all that's around me. It's a new chapter, a new beginning, and I am scared and nervous... but also brave and excited. Please Pray for me : ) Love you all.

Never again will I have Diet Coke at night

So I came home tonight and was craving something sweet and opened the fridge and TADA Diet Coke... a little wouldn't do anything.. or so I thought!! It's 330am and I am wired... who do I think I am? Never again will that happen... never again.

But now that I am up I do have some cool things to recommend that I have come across in the last few days:

#1. So now that I am no longer on unemployment... BUDGET is a word that I am trying to put back in my vocabulary. Now that my apartment is finally put together... it's time to do so. Thanks to the internet and word of mouth... I came across this FREE site called mint.com. It's a site where you load all your online banking on and it breaks it down into a budget and tells you what you spend all your money on and how you can save. It's perfectly safe (believe me I checked and checked). I got my credit card stolen last month so I'm very careful. But check it out. It's amazing!!

#2. 2 TV shows that I am addicted to now are:

GOSSIP GIRL: I finished both seasons in 3 days... guilty pleasure
and new favorite (and sad it's ending in 2 episodes):

PUSHING DAISIES!!!
No TV=Internet and iTunes TV. So both shows have gotten me through the rough times of boredom. Thank you Gossip Girl and Pushing Daisies.

#3. AWKWARDFAMILYPHOTOS.COM
Bobby (my roommate) and I could not stop laughing when we saw this site. Look at all of them... we laughed, we cried, we cried from laughing. Come to think of it: Because of the diet coke... this is kind of how I feel right now (thank you awkwardfamilyphotos.com)

#4. It's almost new planner time!! One of my favorite times of the year!! My favorite kind is the Academic Textagenda from Quo Vadis. 2008-2009 was black... 2009-2010 is blue!! I know I am no longer in college, but it definitely has the best layout of planners... I can fit a whole bunch of stuff in it:
