    hi karen!

    hope the weekend was great for you and tabs…
    his LOLCATZ version of the banner was way cute. my pug (mr. wrinkles) refuses to stay still for any good pictures, except when we get him to sit with a dog biscuit.

    totally random (related to signature looks post) – if tabs’ signature look is cat eyes, mr. wrinkle’s look would be an overdone black eyeliner/shadowed emo boy look that sends parents running for the hills!

    <3 ines

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Lea,

    Once upon a time I was a wanna be botanist! I would love someday to have a garden full of beautiful flowers. El Hub is all about growing stuff you can eat, ha ha ha. What are you going to plant?

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Oh yay! I will have to look at your smokey eye!

    I will have to borrow your hope of having a job that I love… dang, can we all just win the lottery already?

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Alyssa,

    Leave that job if it’s making you physically ill. That’s a big sign of it being time to go. You can do it, girl!

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    That’s so exciting! I am very jealous of your upcoming trip. Where are you going?

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Alexandra,

    How’s the job search going? I just was talking to my brother and he’s on the hunt too (he just also recently graduated).

    Hi Ines,

    Have fun purging your closet and room. I love cleaning out stuff… I have the tendency to be a pack rat, so it’s a constant struggle.

    Awww, Mr. Wrinkles is *smart*. He’s charging you in biscuits for pictures! 🙂

    This weekend was pretty mellow. Tabs kicked it for a long time on both days. He really loves to sleep, the lazy bum. Did you and Mr. Wrinkles do anything fun?

    That’s so great. I remember a few months ago when we were chatting about your upcoming trips and now they are finally here. I hope you do lots of amazing things … and then I hope you tell me about them! I’d love to go there someday.

    Have you planned what makeup you’ll be taking along?!?! 😉

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    NICE! I’m glad it’s all painted (is the blister better?)! You’ll get there eventually, girl. Soon all those boxes will be put away…

    Hang in there! I know how it is to push when you’re tired. You can do it. 🙂

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea,

    YAH! I hope you are in Hawaii too so I can vicariously live through you. You can email me the surf report and I can just sit here and stare at my terrible 4/3 wet suit, aha ha ha!

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Caro,

    LOL, that’s gonna be my new mantra. I hope it doesn’t hurt too much. Get some rest, girlie! Gotta keep all the rest of those fingers in one piece!

    so i’ve been on a diet this summer, and what i found really works is during meals, don’t eat until you’re full..stop when you don’t feel hungry because it takes 20 minutes for your stomach to send the signals up to your brain, so if you eat til you’re full you’ll be even MORE FULL 20 minutes later. that helped me lose around 5 pounds this summer

    Hi Lindsay,

    I agree. Watching what you eat totally makes a difference. I’m usually pretty good with portion control but lately I’ve been just craving junk food. 🙁 It doesn’t help that there’s an In n’ Out and two pizza joints within walking distance. Le sigh time to eat some salad!

    Hi Alexandra,

    I don’t know what position you’re looking for, but have you considered getting in as an admin assistant? I’ve know several college grads who got into their fields first by starting as admin, who then either moved up or into other departments. Using a job service can help, too.
