13 in 13 Update

Well, as most of you know, I committed to the 13 in 13 challenge in the end of December, and I’m pretty determined to complete it. Starting it is a must too, so let’s work on that.

Sick!! Woot Woot!

Well, the title of this post isn’t really all that true. I am sick with a sinus infection and I was put on antibiotics for the next 10 days. Amoxicillin and nose nasal spray twice a day. That’s fun.

If some of you guys saw my most recent update post with pictures, you may notice that there is a red mark on my stomach. I thought it was a rash. It turns out I am allergic to some metal in my belt. I was really confused when my doctor told me this, because it’s only been present for the past  month or so. Thennn, I looked back in my belt owning, and realized that about 2 months ago, I bought a new belt. Great. So, yes, I am most likely allergic to nickel or copper or whatever the heck is in my belt. Yay. That’s all. I hope to return to school tomorrow only to miss another day of school on thursday. My mom is getting surgery and she needs me to take care of her while she is bedridden for the day, so yes, missing three of the five days this week. So, my three-day weekend will be filled with homework doing. Yay.

Happy Shredding

P.S. I was weighed today and I am 162.2 lbs. I’ve lost three pounds in the last month. That’s fine… I guess

Hello again, As some of you may know, i enjoy doing challenges. I feel like I actually accomplish things when I do/ attempt them, so why not do another one, now that basketball has ended…

basically, this was created by her And basically it’s to sort of declutter, reorganize and such during the shortest month of the year. She gave some suggestions of what to do, and I will follow them almost to the point, except for the ones about twitter and facebook, because I do not have a twitter and facebook associated with this blog. 🙂

 

 

i need to complete these things…
