Weekend Wrap-Up

Hey people! Hope you all had as great a weekend as I did. Weather here reached the 40s and people were walking around like it was Summer time. I can't blame them though. It did feel like it compared to the 18 degree highs we've been having lately. This Saturday it's supposed to be 50. If it is, I swear I'll be out their in a tank top and some capris.

*So, my weekend was fun in a non-spectacular sort of way. A definite plus was the opening of six new exhibits at my museum. They were all pretty amazing but I was ecstatic when I found out that we were exhibiting original Andy Warhol portraits and photographs. Andy. Fucking. Warhol. There was an opening reception with at turnout of about 600 people. I managed to snag alot of pictures of all the exhibits but I'm only posting a few because I took over 100.

Okay, so this knife was displayed as a piece of art....Uncovered. Really? I can't help but wonder what those mofos expected me to do is some psycho decided to pick that bad boy up and try stab my black ass.

A piece from the abstract realism exhibit.

Just one Warhol...I might pull it down though because I'm not sure if this is copyright infringement.

Part of the digital art exhibit.

Panoramic Narrative...This was pretty awesome.

Also part of the digital media exhibit...

This too...

...and this.

I manipulated the color here. This exhibit was of called the Four Seasons. These photos don't do it justice.

Hehehe...I love my job.

*Aside from work, I didn't do much else this weekend besides chill and homework. There are alot of campus events and parties coming up in the next month so I opted to take it easy until then. One of my girlfriends from last year visited me. We kind of fell off because she moved out the dorms and into an apartment. Anyway, she also smuggled a little something extra in with her.

Isn't he just the cutest thing ever??? I absolutely fell in love with him and he took to me quickly too. I want a puppy sooooo bad. I've had every pet imaginable (cats, birds, turtles, fish, lizards, rabbits) but never a doggy:-(.

*Oh, so my crush turned out to be a bust lol. He and I had been texting consistently since last Sunday and then all of a sudden he just stops. I haven't heard from him since Thursday and I refuse to text him one of those Why you no call me messages. Nope. I'm just going to keep going about my business cause I've got plenty on my plate now. Besides, he served his purpose. I'm not even bummed a single bit because, like I said, I was just happy that I had it in me to still have a crush. Let's me know that it's not hopeless and I'm not so cynical that I can't be genuinely be excited about someone. I just need to find a guy who I can spark with.

*By now, most of you know that I'm big fan of Post Secret. That is why, when I found out that the founder Frank Warren, would be speaking at my school in a few weeks, I nearly did a cart-wheel. He'll be here next Tuesday (Feb. 10) and the event is free. But over 1,000 people already RSVP'd and the tickets are first come, first serve. Tomorrow is the first day they start giving them out, so wish me luck in getting one.

*I've been working really hard to shed my Freshman 30 (lol)...I'm been doing the Power 90 program, not to be confused with Power 90X. This is a milder but equally effective version. I did it a few years ago and lost 20 pounds in about a month and a half. Back then, I didn't go the whole 90 days so this time I'm committing to the entire program.

I'm two weeks into it now and I'm already seeing pretty good results. Now, only because I love y'all, I'm going to post my busted ass 'before' picture and my current 'after'. But please believe that both will be coming down within 24 hours.
Missed it!
See my baby 2 pack trying to come through? lol. I still don't know how much I weigh but that's not my concern. I just want to be able to comfortably fit into clothes I wore pre-Freshmen year, and I'm well on my way. I'm already down a pants size and I can fit into some shirts that I didn't dare wear in the past few months. When I gain weight, it usually goes straight to my boobs and I can't ever wear button ups or even certain types of zip up jackets. But now the girls are shrinking back to normal size and I can! Yay me!

Whenever I talk about Power 90, I feel like a freaking infomercial. But the program is truly amazing. It's the most straight forward and effective workout routine I've ever done. You can't help but get great results if you really commit to it everyday. Anybody who's trying to lose some weight before Summer (or even Spring), I highly urge you to download the workout here via Rapidshare. You can find links to Power90X there as well, if you're looking for more of a challenge. And I'll also keep you all posted of my results as I go along:)

So yeah, I had a pretty cool weekend. I am still very appreciative to all you ladies for your advice because it certainly has helped. Things are getting easier with each passing day and I'm feeling extremely balanced. Mentally, physically, spiritually, academically. I've been working out, eating right, and staying up on my homework as well as my social life. I don't think I've ever been this well balanced in my entire life lol. I'm happy. Genuinely=). So thanks again for all your advice girls. It has truly been a big help to me.

Nice, nice indeed, I was thinking about trying the 90x (if were talking about that same DVD series)myself but was skeptical I think I will place an order.

Cute puppy. Missed your workout porn! lol.

Doggies are awesome. I lived alone my last year of college, so I had my mom bring my doggie to keep me company.
