[via byeweight]

Last night, while waiting for my ride, I came up with several ideas for things that I can make for my shop. I've already drafted some patterns, I'm going to stop by JoAnn's after going to Best Buy to get my pre-paid phone tomorrow.

I still need to order business cards -_-

Outside of that, I decided to change my blog name to Daydreams and Destinies. I'm going to spend some of my weekend creating a layout for it and then going live on Monday, March 12, 2012. So, if you're interested you can start following over there now.

While, I like the name Love's Modesty, I feel that it didn't fit me anymore, especially with where I want to go in life and the plans that I have for myself. So, I had to come up with a new one. I knew I needed a name that summed me and my blog up. The first thing I did was center myself and let all the things that I like to do cycle through my head. I asked myself what do I do the most. I daydream all the time and I truly believe that the things I hold in my heart will come to pass, when is destiny. So, that's how I came up with the name. I think it's a name that will stick in people's mind. I'm excited for the new blog and name. I hope to see you guys there. I will make an official post on Monday to the finished site.

Tomorrow is Friday, thank goodness this week went by faster than last week. I don't plan on doing anything to exciting. I'm going to stop by Best Buy and pick up my MetroPCS pre-paid. And I'm going grocery shopping. Then I'll most likely I'll sit in front of my computer and watch the rest of MARS and then start Boys Over Flowers.

Anyway, I was discovered a new group, that's not so new. Their name is IIndian (Two Indian), the are a Korean electropop group. They only released on CD in 2009 named Vol 1 Speak. I looked all over the net to find a download, but couldn't find one. So, I ended up buying the CD from Yes Asia. The CD should be here on the 24th.

So, yesterday I visited one of the many blogs that I read and they were talking about their experience selling in antique malls, flea markets, and online. She talked about inexpensive handmade accessories sell better than the larger expensive items. I want to make crochet blankets and hats, but with my job the way that it is, I don't have time to work on things like that. So, I decided to make some earrings. I orders stainless steel earring stud blanks and resin flowers. She also talked about branding and consistency with packaging. So, while I wait for my items to arrive I can think of how package, send, and price my items.

I started my low-calorie diet on Monday, my goal is to stay 1,500 calories and lower. According to the BMR calculator I need 2277 for basic function. Minus 500 calories would be 1777 and one pound a week. Minus another 500 would be 1277 and two pounds a week. So, I've lost four pounds.

With the release of the iPadHD people will be flocking to get it. Which means that I can finally get and iPad 1.

A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned

[via n10a]

As some of you may know, I'm in love with my iPhone. But AT&T prices were crazy and I was tired of having a contract. So, I cancelled it. I no longer have an iPhone that can be used as a phone. So, it will now be a fancy ipod touch. Plus, I can always update or get new apps using my iTunes. 

So, now I have to find a pay-as-you-go phone. My mom has one and only buys $20 dollars worth of minutes every few months because she doesn't use her phone much. I think that's what I'll do. It's a lot cheaper that the $100 I was paying for AT&T.

I decided to go with a MetroPCS Samsung Admire phone. The phone itself is $80, I only paid $50 for my iPhone. But, AT&T, like I said before was $100. That was 450 minutes of talk time and the Data Plan. MetroPCS is $20 for 500 minutes. And it has web access.

I'm not sure if I'm going to stop by the store tonight and get it, or if I'm going to wait for the weekend.

One thing I will miss about my iPhone is being able to watch Youtube, but I can watch that when I get home.

Movies and Food

I'm getting really good at making oatmeal now. Usually I don't add enough water or I add to much, but today it was perfect. I've also started adding craisins. I think I might try adding apricots next time.

I also tried one of my lean gourmet meals from Michellani's last night. I had the buffalo chicken snackers for dinner. It was really good and filling. I bought them this past Sunday at Walmart, they were only a dollar. So, I figured I'd given them a try. When I go shopping this week I'm going to get them for lunch as well. It's so much easier grabbing something and leaving; then having to make something from scratch everyday.

Outside of that I looking into some more Korean films to watch. A majority of the international films that I've watched have been Japanese. I've decided the expand my film viewing field. These are the movies I'm going to watch next:

1. I Saw the Devil
2. The Chaser
3. H
4. Sympathy for Mr Vengence
5. Memories of Murder
6. Mother

If you have any foreign films that you've watched and loved let me know. I'm willing to watch anything once as long as it isn't anything graphic, like Hannibal Holocaust *shudders*

Moving Day

So, I've been going back and forth between keeping my bed and taking it to the new place. Or leaving it for Good Will and buying another bed.

Yesterday, we stopped by the complex that we are moving to, and we took pictures and measurements. my room is small and in the shape of a square, but I have a walk-in closet...I'm so excited about that. And My bed and dresser would take up way to much room. So, I came up with the idea of getting a sleeper sofa. That way I can fold my bed away and have ample space to move around. I'm going to by my sleeper at Rooms to Go and I'll by my drawers from Ikea.

And I watched about half of the MARS series. I'm really enjoying it so far. The only character I don't like is Shanzhi(sp?) she's so annoying, whiny, and needy. I also watched a movie by the name of Old Boy, it was released in 2007. It so good.

Outside of those things my weekend was rather boring.

Friday, March 2, 2012

It is finally Friday. It felt like it was never going to get here, this has been the slowest week this year.

My weekend plans aren't that exciting. I plan on packing some more things, getting stuff together for Good Will, and possibly doing my hair if I feel like it.

Outside of that I'm excited about American Idol this year, well only two contestants. DeAndre and Jessica. In my opinion they are the only ones that I could see being successful. Last night I was worried that DeAndre wasn't going to make it into the top 13. If he hadn't there would be no need for me to watch. But, luckily he was the last to be picked. Next week they are going a tribute to Whitney Houston. I'm a little nervous for them.
