Yesterday Jake and I were very hungry and couldn't decide where we wanted to go eat. Jake told me I had to decide where we were going. So of course I turned to Google. I googled "healthy places to eat". It pulled up an article that showed things to avoid. The article said to avoid deep fried things, salt, supersize portions, and buffets. Unfortunatly, as soon as I saw the word BUFFET, I couldn't stop thinking about Old Country Buffet (So much for eating healthy). We conveniently have one right by our work, so we both decided  Operation O.C.B. was a go! 

We got there at 3:36, when the lunch prices end at 3:30.  Although it was slightly expensive, the unlimited chocolate milk, and create your own icecream sunday definitely made up for it. I insisted on paying for our meals in hopes that it would make up for the half hour he spent scraping off my car durring that ice storm last week. 

After we sat down, we noticed that we were both wearing Beatles shirts. How embarrassing! (I made Jake take a picture so I could put it on my blog later) We both laughed it off as we enjoyed our meals. We sat right next to this really old woman who you could just tell was a regular. She seemed nice.

I had to work until close last night. It wasn't that bad. It seemed like it flew by for some reason. I have to work again tonight. Hopefully it won't be too bad. I'm up in booth tonight so I assume it will be fine. 

After work I came over to Jake's apartment and watched Pawn Stars on the History channel ( I love that show) and someone brought in an old music player (some old gadget with a horn). I'm not really sure what it was. I knew Jake had a record player so I asked him if it was anywhere accessible. I was in luck! He knew right where it was. We both relaxed and listened to the whole Abby Road album and also some from the Revolver album. It was awesome. I can't remember the last time I heard an actual record. Records just have this different sound to them. I felt like the music was in my head.  I'm thinking about ordering a Michael Jackson Album and listening to it on his player. Basically, yesterday was a really great day!

Also, If you tried calling/texting me yesterday, I apologize. I forgot to pay my phone bill and didn't get it.

New Blog, New Hair!

I recently started blogging for my internet marketing class. Now that I've started getting the hang of it, I'm trying a personal blog as well. A few of my friends from back home have them and I like being able to keep up with their lives. Hopefully this blog will serve the same purpose for them!

I've noticed myself changing lately. Nothing too drastic, just new things in my life. Here are the things that I have noticed so far:

  • I've been focusing more on school
  • I got 2 new pairs of glasses (the first time I've paid for my own glasses)
  • I'm cutting back on hours at work (which is awesome)
  • I've been skyping more with family and friends
  • I'm eating less fast food
  • I can't remember the last time I was sad (unless crying during movies counts)
  • Jake and I are going on our first trip to Chicago next week
After thinking about all of these new things, I wanted to add one more thing to that list. I needed to change my appearance. Right around this time every year, I get bored and usually dye my hair, get my nails done, or buy new clothes. As I was driving by GreatClips the other day, I noticed that haircuts were only $6.99. I know this price is unheard of by many of you, but please don't judge me. :) My roommate Kelly and I were comparing split ends in the car the other day so I knew I needed a trim. There was a 20 minute wait when I got there so I decided to grab a hairstyle book to pass the time. I saw a short haircut that I liked and decided what the heck? I'll do it! I needed a drastic change. I'm glad I got it cut. now I can whip my hair back and forth like Willow Smith. Here are some pictures!
