I am still mostly enjoying work, but it definitely makes me tired.
I've been dealing with a lot of ants the past couple of weeks. It's been raining a lot around here.
I have to go grocery shopping tomorrow.
wow. this is sad, isn't it.
well, then. I shall give myself a gold star that says "you tried."

So anyway. I actually have a project to post. I've been slowly(it's only taken, what, 5 years?) been trying to finish decorating my master bedroom. Doing it as cheaply as possible is part of why it's taking so long, and waiting to find just the right thing either at the thrift store or at any store.
So, a few years ago I wanted to make my first purchase on Etsy, so I decided to buy a print. When I found this print I knew I needed to have it because it was my favorite flair when I was on Facebook. So I bought it and it has been knocking around my house ever since waiting to be framed and what not. I briefly had it with a gold frame and a red mat, but didn't like the gold frame. Then I decided I wanted to put Christmas pics up in my bedroom and bought some cheap frames at Hobby Lobby(they were $2.50 each(50%off yo) and I bought a small can of dark red spray paint and painted them red. So I have, like maybe $10 invested in them? I knew I wanted to put my print in one after Christmas, but I needed a different mat, and off white wouldn't work and dark blue seemed like it would be too much, so the other day when I was looking at scrapbook paper for my pre-school project I came upon some lovely paper that I realized would be perfect around it. So after some few minutes of cutting and pasting I finally had my picture framed. I like it and am currently putting it on a test run.
So, I haven't yet decided what I am going to put in the other two frames. One currently houses a plastic christmas ornament from walmart masquerading as art.

My favorite version of this is the dance version. This is the dance they performed on the music shows (one of the interesting things about how Kpop groups promote is that they spend about 1 month promoting their new single by performing on the major networks music shows every week. The dance is an integral part of the song).
The other version has a sort of plot to it if you prefer that sort of thing.
This is their latest Japanese release. It's very pretty, I think.

So, I promised two pictures for this week. These are both from valentine's day( I used my sister's camera phone). I forgot the perks of being a teacher were teacher gifts, lol. My brother in law brought my sister and I Valentine's donuts and mocha lattes. We really appreciated it. We were supposed to wear red or pink or white(per our bosses request) so I wore a red sweater, my hot pink converse, and pink/blue/brown striped socks. Everyone was surprised because they know how much I don't like Valentine's day.

When the video for Lover of the Light came out I was interested to see what they had done with it. There are no appearances of the band in this video, it is purely a story. I won't lie. I totally
Here's a bonus video for you. It is my current pipe dream to see them live.

Oops! I forgot to post this yesterday. Wednesday was a scary day. We were under a tornado watch most of the day and under several tornado warnings. This is what it looked like when I had to walk to the bus stop(I am still carless). The front yard flooded in a matter of minutes it was raining so hard. It also was hailing. Fun times.
