The Day Before New Years Eve:

I guess that it is resolution time, I am not really all that great with resolutions…. I make them and never follow them, I even tried the 101 in 1001 but so far not much!

So First of all I have decided that in addition to my new years resolutions I am also updating and restarting my 101 in 1001, take a look!

So my resolutions:

Loose some weight

eat healthy(ier)

for the month of January I am not going to eat any sugar that does not occur naturally in the food I am eating, (no sugar in cereal, sauce, ect.) no sodas or sugared drinks, and no fast food.

work out at least once every two weeks

save 50 a paycheck!

Wish me luck!!

2010 Review Part III

Click here for parts One and 2!!!

Once again its time for me to go through the year and review, this Time is July, August and September:

Once again I didn’t post a whole lot so here goes what happened!!



I officially got a new job at a new hotel, love the job and got hooked on the show Pretty Little Liars!!

Brittany Ciara had her 1st annual blog bash!! I had a lot of fun! I talked a little about me and how Confessions of a College Angel came to be!  I told a story about the Great Big Purse of Everything, then I answered what was my song. I enjoyed the Blog Bash and hope that Brittany Ciara has another one this year!

I had some problems with my home life that I mentioned in my first 5 Question Friday,

Piper and her family moved into my apartment with me for 2 weeks before getting the one right  across the hall! That led to my post on how I wanted to be Super Woman, or Samantha Stevens,

I went to NY got a tattoo (not really) and spent some time with my Uncle which was really a good thing because of what happened the next month.



I got my Penni Puppy, (poor things had 3 names and 2 spelling changes but isn’t she an angel???christmas trees ect 003 christmas trees ect 005 christmas trees ect 006 christmas trees ect 012 christmas trees ect 041

I was really random alternating between wedding proposals I love and being drunk dialed! lol you should go watch some of the proposals they are soooo cute!!


My Uncle passed away and rather than have family tell me I found out through Facebook.

I had my very first Monday Min, it was fun!

Then It was time for one of my most favorite months of the year!!!


I had a post on why I love September so much!

I flashed back to 9-11

Had and new story for  my Tales from the Audit Shift!

I came up with 10 reasons I LOVE LOVE my job!!

I found out that we would be moving again soon, and participated in Roo’s what’s in your purse meme, which I should do a new one soon lol because I have since changed purses completely!! 


So that’s all that happened in those 3 months!!! Tune in next week for the last bit of the year!!!

I have been Swapped!!

So I participated in 20something bloggers blog swap! I have never done of of these before so I was a little worried, It’s basically both of us taking over the other person’s blog for a day. Guest posting at the same time lol. I was really lucky to be randomly paired with a Wonderful young lady named Devon and we swapped blogs for the day! Now if you want to read mine head on over to Devon’s Wonderful Blog Answering Oliver.

Devon is a very smart 23 year old! She is debt free and writes on what she plans to do with her “Wild and precious life.”   She runs marathons, goes on cruises and skydives! 

So with out further ado: Here is what Devon had to say!

Like Angel, I’ve never done a blog swap before, but I figured I would try something new and perhaps learn something in the process! I think the topic 20 Something Bloggers gave us to write about may help give both of us a kick in the butt to take action on things we’ve been meaning to do, and that’s awesome.

The simple answer to the question, "What will you do next year that you've been putting off for too long?" is: Move out of my mom's house! But answers to questions like that are rarely simple, and there's a little more to it than that.

I've lived at home for one year and four months. I graduated from college with both credit card and student loan debt, and I didn't want to carry that anywhere else once I moved out. With my mom's advice and encouragement, I managed to get rid of all my debt by July 2010. Ever since then, I've been saving up money to move out, and I've just signed a rental agreement on a townhouse with two of my good friends.

Next comes the part where I actually have to move all my stuff! I have my essentials at my mom's house (bed, clothes, books and other personal items), and quite a bit more at my dad's place (furniture left over from my college apartment, boxes of photos, yearbooks and a bunch of other stuff I've forgotten about). When I moved out of my college apartment, I just threw everything I owned into boxes, even if it was complete junk. I guarantee that when I round up all this stuff to move, I’ll be going, “What the heck is that?!?”

I don't want to move all this stuff. I don't want all this stuff, period.

So what I'll finally do that I've been meaning to do is go through that stuff and get rid of anything that (a) I don't currently use, or (b) doesn't have legitimate sentimental value.

I don't want to lug boxes of junk around from place to place just for the sake of hanging on to stuff that I might need or want "someday." Someday is now. I'd love to weed out everything that's unnecessary to my life and donate it all to Goodwill for the benefit of people who will actually use it. I’d love to feel the burden of all that stuff lift away.

It's not necessarily a fun or quick task – hence why I've put it off for one year and four months! – but the end result will be worth it. At some point, I want to travel around the world for at least 6 months, maybe a year or more. The less stuff I’ll have to worry about leaving behind and storing somewhere, the better!

To me, having less stuff – everything I need and nothing I don't – means having more freedom. I’ll take that over having a bunch of stuff any day.

2010 Review Part 2!!


So It's Time for Part 2!! April, May and June! There also were not a lot of posts from these months, I seem to have lost some of my blogging mojo in the first half of the year!


I joined in on Short Mama’s Journey from Muffin Top to Skinny Jeans, I made a lot of resolutions that I have not kept, although reading back now, I plan to try again!

My Best Friend M had some serious Misadventures in Romance  in her life, I am glad to say she divorced Navyboi finally, (read that post for more information on the two not so great men in her life.) but she is still talking to MarineBoi and he is still hitting her.. she is distancing herself from him though, so I am very glad of that.

I had a very bad month With the Passing of my Papa, which tore me apart inside, I did not get to say goodbye because of my mother and I have a lot of regrets from that whole situation, because I didn’t know that later this year I would also loose my Uncle.

I participated in Short mama's Spring Swap!! I got so Many Wonderful things!! If she ever host’s another I plan to sign right up!!



May Was a very stressful month for me:

I ranted about the way some people behave in a hotel, through a collection of cute sticky notes.

James Dean and Ingio Montoya stayed at my hotel!

I tried to find my style only to realize that I don’t really have one although I’d love to wear the clothes I showed!!

I got kicked out, moved back in and kicked out once more, quit my job, got a new one! and moved back in again. all in 1.5 weeks

I found out my new hotel was closing… then being kept open…. then closing again



another worried and sucky month for me, Still was worried about losing my job and paying for the apartment on my own.

Lost the job officially, it was a really bad week for me!

My mother and I had some issues,

So I was jobless and paycheck-less, but I got a lot of things done!

I avoided Temptation.

Got my paycheck and Prue Moved in!!

Told a little about me!!!
