Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 244

Published in: Just For Fun

Colorful chocolate turkeys from See’s Candies, om nom nom!

You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”

Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Mood:
    Fully caffeinated, captain. All ahead, on my mark… Mark!!
  2. Mystery or romance?
    Mmm… How about a mysterious romance? :)
  3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
    I’m in…not that I’m a fanatic for the films (I like the books more), but I feel like I’m already kind of invested in the whole thing, ya know? — like The Jersey Shore. I’ve gone this far. Might as well follow it to completion.
  4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
    Let’s see… No, I have not. I have actually entered a few, though. Really. But I always falter in the early rounds. I have pretty good balance, but I’m not very stretchy/flexible at all.
  5. What time did you go to bed last night?
    Around 10:30, I think it was, but I didn’t fall asleep until 11:30 or so. It took me that long to unwind after last night’s The Walking Dead.
  6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
    I can actually pinpoint the day and time. It was 12:10 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, 2012.
  7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
    A few minutes ago. Tabs was sitting on my lap, purring and looking up at me with his half-open, lovey-dovey eyes. Honestly…I dunno what I’m gonna do when this cat crosses the Rainbow Bridge. As a crazy cat lady, this is probably gonna sound — well, you know how it sounds — but a pet’s love is so powerfully simple and pure. It’s life-changing.
  8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
    Even I’m sick of hearing myself say it, but I gotta finish getting my dining room in order, and I need some better, bigger storage in my office. Seriously, it’s a disaster. It’s like a thick forest, except instead of trees, it’s filled with tall photography lights and tripods, and instead of bushes and shrubs, the ground is covered by boxes and makeup packaging.

    Whether I actually accomplish those things remains to be seen, LOL!

  9. How long are your nails?
    They’re short. I like to keep ‘em that way, just a shade longer than my fingertips, but sometimes I’ll forget to file for a while, and they’ll grow out.

    Oh, but back when I was a teenager, I had long eagle talons!

    I have no idea how I got through the day with those things…

  10. Weekly goals:
    I’m going to try to get up with El Hub every morning at 6 this week (I usually get up around 6:30) so that I can squeeze in my workouts a little earlier. That, and I just want to believe in myself and have a good week.

G’morning, glory! Biiiig stretch. :) Come on, let’s shake those sleepy thoughts.

I had such a nice weekend. Random (free Kelly Clarkson concert, anyone?), but a lot of fun. It was way too short, though. Sometimes El Hub gets three days off from work, and then we get to spend a little more time together.

Oh, I wanted to tell you about a book my friend Heidi told me about last weekend called The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook.

Seriously, that’s what it’s called. It’s $10 right now on amazon.com.

Hello! — that’s like my dream cookbook. I think I should order it.

Okay, quick kitchen beverage run. You fill out this week’s Monday Poll, and I’ll be back in two shakes of a husky tabby’s tail.

To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? ::sigh:: In.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Nikki,

      I could spend all day on Food Network. ALL DAY! What are your favorite shows?

      • Nikki B. says:

        LOL! I love that station & HGTV. Favorite shows are Chopped, Cupcake Wars, Iron Chef America, The Next Iron Chef, anything Bobby Flay, Pioneer Woman & Trisha Yearwood’s “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen”. What about you?

        • Karen says:

          Random — I kind of love that Bobby Flay is married to Stephanie March from Law & Order: SVU.

          Anywho, my fave show is Giada’s. She’s a little cheesy, but I like that about her. Do you actually cook anything after you watch the shows? I never do, LOL! I mostly watch them for the random tips the chefs throw in along the way, and because it lets my mind totally zone out.

          • Nikki B. says:

            LOL no I’ve never made anything they did on the shows though I always want to. My family isn’t very open-minded past chicken & fish (snapper specifically) so all the dishes I would love to do they won’t eat so I don’t bother unless it’s something I can sneak past them. I’m a big fan of baking though. I make cookies and cupcakes. My biggest hits so far are my cheesecakes & banana bread. I love Good Eats with Alton Brown as a way to learn new things – he’s the Bill Nye Science Guy of the Food Network

          • Karen says:

            Oh yah, I like Alton Brown, too. He has a nice way about him — kinda nerdy, but cool, you know?

            Remind me to give you my peach cobbler recipe. I’m not a skilled baker, but I have to say that it’s good enough to bring tears to your eyes, LOL! :D

  6. Christine says:

    1. Mood: Jittery. Coffee + inhaler, yikes!
    2. Mystery or romance? Oooh. Mystery. Besides, there’s usually an element of romance to mystery.
    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? OUT. Very out. Haven’t read the books, refuse to see the movies. Can’t stand Kristin Stewart.
    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? Ha, no. I think I’m too 6′ and gangly. I have no balance and a bad back, so limbo just isn’t my thing. Hula hooping, though…
    5. What time did you go to bed last night? 10:30ish? But then we stayed up watching youtube videos in bed for about an hour. Oops.
    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? There was a night in my last semester of college where I had a complete break down because I was feeling incredibly lonely. I think it was in November.
    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? Today. Between a snuggly cat this morning (it’s like she knew I was about to get up and do yoga!) and an all-around awesome guy, I feel it a lot nowadays.
    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? Finally reach my goal weight! UGH! I do NOT like this rollercoaster I’m on.
    9. How long are your nails? Barely peeking over my finger tips (and a dark gunmetal grey with a flakie top coat. Sparkles!). I don’t let them go much longer.
    10. Weekly goals: Join the gym and buy less coffee while at work.

  7. Nina says:

    1. Mood: BUSY! This is what days off get me. :D

    2. Mystery or romance? Mystery all the way!

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? Out. Im sorry but ill just spoil the movie by giggling at the wrong moments.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? No, I dont think so. It would really freak me out if I did and did not remember. :D

    5. What time did you go to bed last night? 930 pm.

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? I get those moments every so often. Last night was the last.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? Every day.

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? Organize the middle room. Its really bad right now – its become a catch all for things that we dont have a place for just yet.

    9. How long are your nails? VERY short.

    10. Weekly goals: Claw my way out of this mire of paperwork I am underneath at. :D

  8. Tennyoceres says:

    1. Mood
    I WERQ it. I got my power outfit on and I am multitasking like no-one’s business

    2. Mystery or romance?
    Mystery. It’s fun to pique my fiance’s curiousity.

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
    My friends know I am in a hate relationship with Twilight. That’s a no. I’ll be the one getting drunk and yelling at the movie screen then getting kicked out if they managed to take me.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
    Never participated. I really should. My yoga instructor always compliments me on being flexible.

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?
    11PM. I had a lot of naps during the weekend.

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
    Last Friday. I had a shitty situation at work and I couldn’t vent to my manager. Crying at work is not classy =[

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
    When my fiance proposed to me. So sappy XD

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
    I need to get my Japanese calligraphy back in form again! Makeup and nail polish is a fun creative outlet but sometimes I just need another option.

    9. How long are your nails?
    About 1/4″ from my fingertips. Any longer than that and my nails chip and break very badly.

    10. Weekly goals:
    +Get my wedding dress! Final fitting is tomorrow and if it fits I get to take it home! =D
    +Write down full names for my wedding guest list to send to my coordinator.
    +Make my veil. I have the materials and tools but I need to determine what style best fits my dress.
    +Bedazzle my wedding shoes. I have adorable wedges to wear on my wedding day but they needed some pop. I’m waiting for all of my rhinestones to ship in this week for a weekend of dazzling shoe makeover.

  9. Kim says:

    1. Mood: Not bad! Still a little cranky from yesterday’s hockey, but pretty good, overall.
    2. Mystery or romance? Definitely mystery!
    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? I’m not invited. I wasn’t good company for the first one and am reaping the rewards of that. :)
    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? No! There was always some freakish pretzel person who beat me. Or at least that’s how I remember it. HAHA!
    5. What time did you go to bed last night? Very long, cold and stressful day. I was literally in bed before 7 PM.
    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? You ask some tough questions in these polls! I am grateful for the fact that I can’t remember ever feeling that way.
    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? I think I feel like that all the time, though maybe not always by all the same people.
    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? I never get tired of your dining room stories! I can’t wait to see the finished product! If I had a list of things I’d like to accomplish by the end of the year, I might actually accomplish some of them. In short, I have a ton of stuff that needs to be done but I can’t imagine much of it will be done.
    9. How long are your nails? About 1/8″ longer than my fingers. Like you, they used to be long when I was young. I remember the sound of them scraping across the basketball every time I shot in school. Ftttp.
    10. Weekly goals: Oh, I know! Clean one room every night so I don’t have to spend all weekend doing it.

  10. Ruchita says:

    Le List

    1. Mood:
    A bit wired. I tried some Splenda in my tea this morning and it’s making feel kinda funky.

    2. Mystery or romance?
    Mystery! I used to love the Nancy Drew books when I was a kid.

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
    I’ve bought tickets already, so I’m in. :-) My sister-in-law and I are going on a girly movie and dinner date on the 16th!

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
    Nope! As I’m getting older it would definitely be more difficult.

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?
    I think it was close to midnight.

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
    Probably a few months ago. This at work and in life were stressful.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
    A few weeks ago, when my sister-in-law, her husband and my brother-in-law were at our house. That’s my close group of friends and it was great to hang out and be around good people.

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
    Maybe try making homemade marshmallows. I’d like to gift them along with hot chocolate mix for Christmas.

    9. How long are your nails?
    Short-ish. Just beyond the edges of my fingertips. I hate having my nails super short. It makes my fingers feel bald!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Try to get back to exercising. My back is feeling better, so no excuses now!

    Have a great Monday!

    P.S. Pets are amazing. I never thought I’d have pets, but I’m so thankful for the unexpected blessings my 3 kitties have brought to my life.

    P.P.S. In other kitty news, the stray kitty we found (Oscar) is in a permanent home. Originally, my sister-in-law didn’t think she could keep him b/c of their dog, but things have calmed down. They have a pet gate to give Oscar some freedom around the house while keeping him separate from the dog. He’s another random kitty that crossed my path and has been such a blessing. I’m so glad we were able to rescue him and take care of him until he found his forever home. :-)

  11. Chelsea says:

    1. Mood: Procrastinating! Homework due in 4 hours that I haven’t started…

    2. Mystery or romance? Both is good!

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? I’m pretty sure I’m going with my fiance – we’re not really fans, but we’ve read and seen them all so far – we’re invested in the series. I was invited to a party for the last movie, which sounds REALLY lame, although I hear last year there was a pregnant Bella cake where you ate the baby out of the belly, and that’s pretty interesting.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? I got really far in one in high school! I have long legs though, so it’s a little hard!

    5. What time did you go to bed last night? past 1AM :p

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? I was in a big fight with my fiance while I was in France.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? I was just snuggling with Jiji half an hour ago, and that felt good.

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? Plan scholarship money for European travels in the summer (advertising research conference, and the Cannes Lions festival of creativity [an advertising festival]). Also, try to figure out if I want to do work or PhD when I finish my Master’s next December.

    9. How long are your nails? They’re just barely past my fingertips right now, because one broke, and I hate having nails that aren’t all the same length. Usually they’re a bit further past my fingertips, because my nails grow really fast.

    10. Weekly goals: Plan my executive briefing for my management class, figure out transportation and exam-makeup-plans so that I can go to an event with the French American Chamber of Commerce next Thursday, do some workouts, and eat vegetables every day.

    Count me out. I want to see Hotel Transylvania…

    I used to win limbo contests. I was super-flexible… but now, not so much…

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?
    I passed out on the couch… I think it was 9:30pm…

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
    For about 10 minutes yesterday morning.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
    Last wednesday, before our company arrived…

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
    I’ve already given up the goal of organizing my workspace…between visitors using the guest cot in there and my 3 weeks away in December, nothing’s happening in that room until January…

    9. How long are your nails?
    Short. Longer than usual; they’re now about 1/8 inch long… I do too much with my hands to have long nails. Tried having nails about 1/4 inch long over the summer and they just got in the way.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Write a blog post every day for the month of November. Exercise for 1/2 hour every morning. Keep the house from returning to its usual entropy now that the visitor is gone…so that I don’t have to work so hard when our next visitor arrives next week.

  14. Heidi says:

    Gurl, there is no maybe about it. That cookbook is amazing! I made the mushroom pate for a potluck I went to yesterday and the reaction was hilarious! It was like passing out catnip to a bunch of cats!

    1. Mood:

    So tired. I never fails to mess me up when the time changes, no matter which direction.

    2. Mystery or romance?

    I’m a sucker for a great romance, but I love a good mystery as long as there’s no blood, guts, and gore in it.

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?

    I’ve managed to avoid it so far, so why quit now. No thanks.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?

    No, but I think Missy would excel in this.

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?

    Total bout of insomnia, didn’t get to bed until after 3am.

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?

    That’s something I’m actually struggling with a lot right now. Facing the holiday season without my Mom for the first time is gonna be rough. I can feel it.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?

    Yesterday when a family that I don’t even know that well but have met through church invited me to join them for Thanksgiving.

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?

    I’m just taking things one day at a time right now.

    9. How long are your nails?

    I just chopped them off after a couple broke, so right past the fingertips.

    10. Weekly goals:

    Try to get some sort of normal sleep pattern back, get my car smogged, and be kind to myself.

  15. angela says:

    1. Mood:
    Sleepy. And terribly jetlagged.

    2. Mystery or romance?
    I’ve never been much of a mystery fan… I don’t do well with suspense. So predictable romance it is.

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
    Out. I watched the first one with my friends, but I didn’t think much of it and haven’t watched them since. I’m so glad the Hunger Games movie didn’t end up like Twilight and actually did the books justice.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
    Like officially? No. I’m sure I’ve been in lots of limbo contests as a kid at parties… but I don’t think I’ve ever won. I remember I used to actually practice doing limbo by hanging a jumprope between the doorknob and my wardrobe.

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?
    Nine. Like I said, I’m jetlagged. Usually I’ll go to bed at 2.

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?

    1. Mood: Excited! I’m currently studying abroad in Italy and I just booked a weekend trip to Munich’s Christmas Markets!

    2. Mystery or romance?: ROMANCE

    3. The girls wanna go to the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?: Out!

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?: No, which is funny cause I’m wicked short

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?: 11 pm, Italy time!

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?: Probably last week. For a moment, when I was in Paris last week, I realized how far away from home I am. It’s a startling thought. This sounds kind of pretentious, doesn’t it?

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?: The last time I spoke with my parents and grandparents

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?: A lot. Take off the few pounds I’ve put on from all this Italian pasta?

    9. How long are your nails?: No idea, but short

    10. Weekly goals: Organize my dresser, write a paper for class, actually remember to DO my work…

    Le List

    1. Mood: Interesting — I’m in a bit of a snippy mood today, and my boss keeps pointing it out, which doesn’t help, but at the same time, not quite sure why I’m in a snit.
    2. Mystery or romance? Romance. I admit, I consider myself a healthy, enlightened, smart, funny and educated woman.. and I love me some romance.
    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? Eeee.. it would have to really line up with my schedule. I watched the first 2 movies, and then I just couldn’t do it anymore. I don’t support the books on a whole.. I believe there is better books to read out there, even in the genre.
    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? I might have, but if I was doing the limbo, I was probably a bit.. tipsy. I am not flexible at all (can’t touch my feet with my hands at all..)
    5. What time did you go to bed last night? 10 pm. I was trying to withstand it around 9:30 but then fell asleep on the couch and dragged my ass to bed at 10. I blame it on the time change :D
    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? Its been quite awhile, but I would guess a few months ago. I have those days where it gets a bit ugly, but it just makes me appreciate the good days even more!
    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? I feel loved everyday, but last weekend the boy went all out (which is a change for him!) and got me flowers and we had a beautiful date night, which was a nice change from the day to day stuff.
    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? Buy a freezer! Gah, we’ve been looking for months now, and we just can’t bite the bullet and buy it.. Also, paint our master (doubtful that will happen), and just generally get more organized in the house. Also, (doubtful), get a bit in shape before Christmas, so I can guilt-free gain the Christmas 5!
    9. How long are your nails? medium long? My right hand is always shorter than my left, but they could use a cut tonight.
    10. Weekly goals: Work out 3-4 times this week! Also, eat more things from the fridge than the pantry, and generally enjoy the week!

  18. Suri says:

    1. Mood: Tired. It was a longggggg last week with Hurricane Sandy and all her destruction. Thankfully we were okay but we did have some family members who were displaced and we were trying to help them out.
    2. Mystery or romance? I love a good mystery. I think I was a detective in another life.
    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? Sure. I read the books no shame in my game. It’s cheesy but I enjoy them.
    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? No. I’ve never entered an actual contest but I always limbo at parties. :)
    5. What time did you go to bed last night? 12am. But I tossed and turned all night and then woke up at 5:30am for work. I iz tired!
    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? At work I felt very alone when I started my new position and it was difficult to do my job with people that didn’t necessarily agree with what I had to do.
    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? Just now when I came home from work and hubby gave me a big beat hug. So needed it!
    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? Nothing in particular. Most of my goals are on their way but I definitely won’t see success til the middle of next year.
    9. How long are your nails? maybe half an inch from my tips. I like them kind of long. And I take biotin which always makes them grow.
    10. Weekly goals: Finish all the reading and my huge project for class which is due this Sat, work out 2xs and enjoy time with family. Sandy definitely made us realize what is important in our lives and I certainly want to make sure I put priority on what matters most to me.

  19. Katherine G says:

    1. Mood:
    ~Refreshed. Finally able to do tough workouts again after fighting a cold. Got to go to Dulles Air and Space Museum over the weekend and saw the SR71 Blackbird, and also got to go to Bull Run Battlefield. I love history!

    2. Mystery or romance?
    ~A little bit of both. I don’t like sappy romance novels, but I like a little bit of romance and a good twist in the plot.

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
    ~Probably out. I don’t go to the theater much anymore, I usually catch movies on DVD.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
    ~Placed, I have always been fairly flexible.

    5. What time did you go to bed last night?
    ~Around 9:30pm I think.

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
    ~It was a while ago…probably last year. I’ve felt vulnerable at times, but not alone in a long while. I finally have a good support system and a better sense of self, and each year my sense of self and motivation gets better and better. I felt most alone when my life didn’t seem to have any direction a few years ago.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
    ~This morning when the hubby kissed me before leaving for work.

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
    ~I would like to accomplish the handstand and more flexible poses in yoga again (I could do them a few years ago), and I would like to start unpacking some of my stuff.

    9. How long are your nails?
    ~Very very short. I am a nail biter, especially when I’m nervous, so I’ve only had them long on a few occasions. Benefits to having them so short is that I never have to experience the pain of breaking one again.

    10. Weekly goals
    ~Keeping working on yoga, strength, endurance and core all this week.
    ~Vote.
    ~Start looking over study guides for written tests.

  20. Rachael says:

    1. Mood: Zapped, my genetics test was lllloooonnnngggg.

    2. Mystery or romance? Romance

    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? Out. That is my idea of punishment.

    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? Nope. Hula Hoop I have though.

    5. What time did you go to bed last night? 10:20

    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? Two Superbowls ago.

    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? Last night.

    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? Finish my Grolar Bear paper.

    9. How long are your nails? Just above my finger tips.

    10. Weekly goals: Try a new restaurant and enjoy Beauty and the Beast at Playhouse Square!

  21. Jenna says:

    1. Mood: So-so. I am glad because I have very little homework to do today, and Thursday is the end of the quarter, so no school Friday! But this upcoming weekend is going to be insane as I am in the Minnesota Valley Sweet Adelines and our annual performance is on Saturday. So much to do before then!
    2. Mystery or romance? Mystery, without a doubt. If there’s romance in it, then ok.
    3. The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out? Out. I do not care for the whole Twilight thing, although I have tried. I do like the soundtracks, though.
    4. Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest? I do not remember having ever even been in a limbo contest, but I have a feeling that if it was something I tried to do, I would not make it very far, as I am not particularly flexible.
    5. What time did you go to bed last night? Oddly for me, I think it was almost 10. The satisfaction of this accomplishment was short lived due to the fact that I woke up at 2:12 am and didn’t fall back to sleep until after 5:30! And then I got up late and then I was 10 minutes late to music practice at school this morning. Yikes!
    6. When was the last time you felt really and truly alone? Well…probably the first day of school this year, when I walked into woodworking and realized that a) I knew no one and b) I had no clue what I was doing when we started the actual projects. But I feel better about it now, and am glad that it’s almost half-way done.
    7. When was the last time you felt really and truly loved? Every time my bunnies look at me with their big brown eyes, my heart melts :)
    8. Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year? I would really like to do a lot of things. Ace the ACT, get my room totally clean and organized, start violin lessons, start a regular exercise routine. I think I will be lucky to just get one or two of these things done!
    9. How long are your nails? My nails are short. If they got any longer, I would not be able to get my contacts out, and that would be a problem. They also bother me when I am texting (not that I do that abnormally a lot; I am not addicted to my phone) if they get too long.
    10. Weekly goals: Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, workout at least once, finish my library books, and finish my story for APLC before Thursday.
