I Got My New Cell Phone Today!!!

A few hours ago, my new phone was delivered. It is a Nokia Lumia, which is completely different from my old phone, in more ways than one. My old one was an Android LG Optimus. The features on both phones are completely different, so I have to get used to a whole new way of using a phone.

I miss my old phone, but I'm happy I have a fully functioning phone again.

With my old phone, when someone tried to call me, it would go straight to voice mail, even if it was on. Also, one of the buttons stopped working as well.

So, it's nice to have a phone that's actually a PHONE. Even though I do like the extra features. Yeah, so...I'm really, really happy now.

Hopefully, this new phone will last a lot longer than the other ones. I hate having a phone that quits after a few weeks of usage. This one better not do that, or I will be one VERY unhappy person. But, for the moment, I'm happy.

Well, that's all for now. More to come later.

Getting a New Cell Phone...Yay!!!

Tomorrow my new cell phone will arrive. I can’t wait to get it. I will finally have a fully functioning phone then, which I am very happy about.

When my dad and I went to the phone store on Saturday, to get this all figured out, the sales associate who talked with us said that the phone I currently have is an early model, and that it was known to have problems like this.

I had to get new cell phones twice because I wasn’t able to recieve calls, and the home button didn’t work.

The phone I have is a T-Mobile LG Optimus (Android), and the phone I am getting is a Nokia Lumia. It is supposed to have a lot more storage space, stronger/better reception, and be easier to use than the one I have now.

I can’t wait to get it, although I’m going to miss my Android phone. I’ve gotten used to it, and love it. Until now. It’s been driving me crazy. So I want to have the new phone now, so I don’t have to miss calls again.

Well, that’s all for now. More to come later

Extreme Couponing...I Want a Little Piece of It

Right now, I am watching reruns of the show Extreme Couponing, and it's making me want to start. Although, I wouldn't go to these lengths while shopping. I guess that's why the show is called Extreme Couponing.

I absolutely love clipping coupons if there is one for something I want, that's on sale. But, I don't go crazy and buy a million of the same item. I'm not that crazy.

Of course, I love saving money, but I don't need to buy a ton of things at once, and use a ton of coupons at once.

There's always a limit on coupons anyway, so it can sometimes be frustrating to shop for stuff anyway.

But, it's fun and interesting watching the show, to see what people would do to save as much money as possible.

Today, I have decided to look for those binder coupon sheet things, so it would be easier for me to see the coupons. I don't know when I would be able to get some, though. I might need to use public transportation, or ask someone to drive me, if they are at a store that isn't close by.

We'll see what happens though.

Well, that's all for now. More to come soon.

Loving: These cool summer days. After the awful heat wave we had recently, I welcome these cooler days with open arms.

Reading: The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen.

Watching: The Road to Avenlea series. It's a spinoff of the Anne of Green Gables series, and is pretty good.

Thinking About: Going back to college in the spring, to work on my Hospitality and Special Education degrees. I really, really, really want to go back to school. I am also thinking about how I really need to clean my room up. It's a mess, and it's starting to bother me. But I lack the motivation I need to actually clean it.

Anticipating: Volunteering on Friday, delivering library materials to homebound people. I love what I do!!

Making Me Happy: Relaxing in the living room right now, without the TV or radio on, using the computer. No noise except for the clicking of computer keys. It is so nice to have quiet time in the living room once in a while.

If you Knew Me:

If you knew me, you would know that I have a learning disability.

If you knew me, you would know that I never really loved school until recently.

If you knew me, you would know I have many passions: children, baking, photography, travel, music, arts and crafts, animals, and writing.

If you knew me, you would know that I want to be a special education teacher, an author, a baker, and a photographer.

If you knew me, you would know that I am a very shy person, but once I get to know someone, and we decide to become friends, I become outgoing, and comfortable around that person, and with myself.

If you knew me, you would know that I don't like exercising, but I am trying to work on that.

If you knew me, you would know that I have never had a boyfriend, and I am saving myself for marriage.

If you knew me, you would know that I LOVE the Summer Olympics. I like watching the Winter games too, but I am more of a summer person, so the Summer games are more to my liking.

If you knew me, you would know that I am very self-conscious about myself. I am well aware of how I look, and there are things that I tend to think about a lot, that people might judge me on.

If you knew me, you would know that I LOVE calendars. I don't know why. Sometimes I will have up to 4 or 5 of them hanging up in my room.

If you knew me, you would know that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan.

If you knew me, you would know that a huge dream of mine is to get married and start a family of my own. I want 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. I also want to adopt children (from anywhere), especially children with special needs.

Olympics 2012

The Olympics have officially ended, and I'm sad about that. I loved watching the games. The USA was number one in the most medals won. With the way the US athletes were this year in the games, I am so proud to be an American. They made everyone proud. I absolutely loved the games.

I would love to be a spectator in an Olympic games one day. I love watching sports, and I've always wanted to travel the world.

These last two weeks have been awesome in terms of the Olympics. The US women's track and field team won gold, and created a new record. The fab five gymanstics team also won gold.

I can't wait until Rio in 2016!! I do watch the winter Olympics, but I'm more of a summer person, so I'm into the summer Olympics more. But I love watching The Flying Tomato in winter. He is awesome!!!

Well, that is all for now. More to come later!
