13 December, 2009 Sunday // Site, Life

iconDear lovelies, I’ve returned from weeks of hibernation. And welcome to the new version; quite simple but it’s what I’m liking right now. Feedback please! :)
Only one more week of school and I’m going to be on winter break for two weeks! It’s a sorely needed vacation and I’ll be enjoying every second of it. I hope you all have some wonderful plans, and if not, make some! This holiday season feels extra special and I hope I get a chance to see some snow this year. I’ve been pretty overloaded with schoolwork, and although I’m still in way over my head, it’s time to lighten up a little. :yes:
I’ve never been one to get into New Year’s resolutions and goals, but I’d say after the given (get good grades, do some outstanding stuff, work hard :P ), I’d like to lose some weight. I’m currently 124 lbs, and that extra 4 just gives me the flubbery pudgery that prevents me from wearing whatever I want whenever I want. Ah, good luck to that. Why is it so ridiculously difficult to lose FOUR POUNDS?!? :argh: Anyway, off the sensitive weighty issue, do you have any goals you want to reach? ;)
I’ll be doing my Christmas cards in a bit, and if you would like a personalized holiday lovenote from moi, feel free to e-mail me your mailing address. ^^ If I find myself with spare time on my hands, I might make a little digital gift for all my affies, but that’s a bigif.
To conclude, whether or not your winter is green or white, have a great December! I will definitely update at least one more time this month, so until then!

I’m in love with this layout<3 It's so prettyyyy :D Great job! I wish I had your web and graphic design skillz. It’s the shizz! Haha, the previous layout was a premade that’s why you must have seen if somewhere else x3 But I changed it to my own layout now, lol. Well, if you don’t want to convert your whole entire site, you can just install WordPress for your blog and keep the rest of your site! :) But I prefer it as my overall CMS :XD: Ah, that must been a while ago since you started web design! I’m going on my winter break the week after next aswell, I’m really looking forward to it :D You really sholdn’t worry too much about your weight. I’m sure you’ll lose 4 lbs :) Just make sure you eat healthy and exercise as well as not eating so much junk food :3 I’m excited to see the digital gift for us even if it’s a big if xP Hope you’re doing good as well, hun. :D

aww! love it! it’s so different from what I saw at your house the other day, but in a good way! It makes me sad for some reason. I see you used the textures you took with you camera and that beautiful rose (that I think looks like scrunchy lips). haha….you dress your baby well.

you need to lose four pounds? psh. dude I should lose ten pounds… we’ll do it together! haha. only best friends go on duet diets!

see you soon… in twelve hours and thirty minutes to be exact.

I can spell my name real good!….F-R-E-D F-R-E-D B-U-R-G-E-R…when do we get hammer thing-ys? because I can maybe make some nice stuff like a table and some chairs…can I try on that hat? I think it’s important!

Upon entry, I was like *gasp* She made a new layout! This is sooo lovely, too! Love the color scheme, love the header, love everything! I’m like totally crushing on your layout! lol.

I guess my one goal (because I despise pressure, and all that resolutions are to me is pressure…and I tend to just drop them like a bad habit) is to get out of the house. It’s kind of scary for me though….because that out-of-the-house thing involves confronting my anxieties….so yeah. Might not be achieved, that goal. This year my goal was to write something of significance. . . I think I bailed on that one in March.

This holiday season sort of has put me in a weird frame of mind. It’s almost as if you have to mourn your family when you’re miles and miles away, and can’t change that no matter what. Trying not to get too far into that mopey mood, though :)

Hope you have a lovely holiday season, though ;)

Aw I love this layout. It’s cute!

Ah yes, it is always hard not to judge & make judgments especially if your loved one is doing something stupid but the best thing you can do is be there for them & help guide them.

I want to actually lose about 5 lbs or so but then my boobs would go bye-bye. :( It’s difficult..yet it can be easy. I lost like 6 lbs because I was depressed & sick. Then I gained it all back. -_- But everyone is different!

Oh yeah my only qualm about your layout is that your site name should stand out more! & same with your links!

my only goals are:
1. losing weight/getting physically fit!
2. updating the site more
3. eating healthier. i honestly am not overweight. i weigh 115lbs but i want to get back to my old 108lb area. so that’s 7 lbs!

i like ur new lay, looks so magically :)

yay, two days more of school and finally break. I cant wait. I dont have any plans for it, but I think I won’t make ones.
in my city is snowing right now, but generally this is not a typical Canadian winter. I mean, this is my first winter here, but my friends told me that a year ago in December was already a lot of snow. And now is snowing in the evening, but in the morning snow dissapears. weird, huh?
haha, I think the goal to lose weight is the one of most popular goals people made. But it’s my goal too, haha! Maybe not to lose weight, but to do something with my body (yeah, Im skinny, but anot athletic. I told my dad that I want to get a treadmill on Christmas XD. (I dont know feets and lbs and all those things, so Im 180cm and 62kg, so I think it’s good).

and oh okay, we can be affiliates, but what kind? regular, top or maybe elite? :)

left by emilka on 16 December, 2009 Wednesday

hmm snow is ok, but I hate when it’s cold outside. for example my hands are cold for 365 days a year haha. so winter is not so nice for me.
yeah haha, a some woman who brought us to Canada told me that I’ll probably have in school these “strange things” like pound, foot and so on… but it’s not so hard as it seemed to be :D.
honestly, everyone’s saying that I’m tall. When I came to school people were asking me how tall I am lol. And I think I haven’t met any girl who is taller than me (in school). Well, maybe one, but Im not sure.
Hmm, I generally don’t do that, but I like your site, so I can put you in elites. but I’ll do that later, or tommorow :)

I am never into making New Year’s resolutions cuz I end up forgetting about them anyways. I guess the only thing I want every year is to have a good one!! I am sure losing the 4lbs won’t be that hard?? Good luck anyways :-D

Long time no talk (: Lovely layout!

Thanks! I’m glad you like the idea xD

Well right now I just finished my English essay and I can from now on enjoy my Christmas holiday!!!!!!! :D 3 weeks! How’s your life? :p Are you off from school yet? (:

left by Helene on 19 December, 2009 Saturday

I’m sure you look fine but yeah it’s impossible to lose weight….or maybe it’s not. Who knows, lol, I do love yoru layout, it’s absolutely gorgeous!

left by June on 19 December, 2009 Saturday

Happy holidays! This is such a beautiful layout! Losing weight…i want to lose weight. But i agree its so hard. Anyways, good luck with all the new year resolutions :)

left by Cynthia on 20 December, 2009 Sunday

yeah, it was quite hard at the beginning, but I hope I’ll soon make my very first own WP theme :D why isn’t it for you? in my opinion it’s very comfortable, all these sub-pages and so on.. :D
hah, thanks, I like this pic, it’s funny ;d

left by emilka on 20 December, 2009 Sunday

& what are you using now? because I know only CuteNews & WordPress and I can’t recognize what’s on your site :p

left by emilka on 20 December, 2009 Sunday

LOVING the new layout!

It’s like freaking easy to gain weight (cuz I mean, eating and doing nothing is actually EFFORTLESS) but to lose weight you got to commit to it! Like go to the gym (or exercise wherever) and eat the right foods. It’s a huge committment…

Ha! My goals are just like yours --> get good grades, save the world, etc etc

Hope you are doing well! And have a great Christmas Break!

Sorry for the late reply :(

Losing weight IS difficult. But if you just stick to your rutine..it’ll come off soon enough. Maybe not in a month..maybe not in two months. But eventually!

Happy holidays :)!
