Update: Crafts, Reading and Goals:

I haven't written in a long time. I have been a few crafty things. I have been making potholders with loops and looms. Haven't done much knitting lately.
I have been reading a lot though. I got an Amazon Kindle as an early birthday and Christmas/Yule present. I did some research and found out the case it comes with is NOT leather OR suede despite what some of you may have heard, so the Kindle is vegan safe :)
I am currently reading Nightworld Book 1(its 3 books in one). I have a lot of classics I plan to read eventually and a few new supernatural authors I would like to explore.
I am very open-minded and if you have any suggestions or recommendations feel free to share. I want any books I have to pay for (ie not public domain) to be realitively inexpensive and/or longer books so I get a lot of reading out of them. I can read a novel that is 300-400 pages in about 4 days if it is really good.

Nightworld Book 1 (Currently reading as of Nov 9)
Jane Eyre
Wuthering Heights
Pride and Prejudice
War and Peace

Read at least 1-2 books a month
Lose some weight
exercise daily
Try 10 different vegan foods or ingredients I haven't used yet

Also I'm looking forward to 2 big things in November. My 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend and the Twilight movie.

I love my boyfriend!

As if I needed another reason to love my wonderful boyfriend: he gave me one.

He bought me my Trollbead bracelet yesterday. I got a silver chain and plain silver clasp (I like the plain clasp) and 2 silver stoppers and... a lovely unique OOAK bead (one of a kind). It is SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I will post some pics of it soon.

Not very artsy lately...

Haven't written in a while but I've been in a creative slump. Haven't knitted in a long time. I have tried to learn to crochet but am failing miserably. I need to get back into something creative. I need to vent my stress. My computer died on me, I don't know if I can get it working again. I lost all my Sims and custom content if I can't get it working. :( It makes me very sad.

On a happier note everything is great with my boyfriend and we are going on 8 months. We got to see each other these last 2 days and had lots of fun.

I am going to see American Idol on tour! My favorite is Jason Castro.

I have recently been very interested in synthetic dread falls and may like to learn to make them myself. I think dreads are cool but I don't know how I would look in them. My hair isn't very long. I also am unsure if I want the commitment of real ones.

I graduated in June with honors. I haven't found a job yet, but I might have to soon. I can't find anything good in my area. I don't drive so I don't know what to do. I need some inspiration, a new computer, and probably a job :(
