A Month of Saturdays...

Exercise #154 : "Saturday To Dos"
http://rdmblog.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/saturday.jpg
List three things you typically do on a Saturday.
Then list three things you used to do on a Saturday but don't anymore.
Three things you would like to do but never have.
Three things you did but hated having to do.
Three things you could do but won't.
Three things that you especially enjoy doing.
Three things you could do that it has never, until this moment, occurred to you to do.

1,2,3, GO!!!

Things I like to do on Saturdays:
  1. sleep in - After a long week of classes and/or work I always appreciate those extra few hours of shut-eye.
  2. veg out in front of the tv and watch movies and tv show marathons - There's nothing better than the feeling that there is absolutely nothing that you have to do. You can just relax and turn your brain off for a few hours and let life move by at a glacial pace.
  3. write - I write every day, but Saturdays are the day that I really focus on my writing, on the current WIP, etc.
Things I used to do on Saturdays:
  1. work - bwahaha Freedom from Saturday work! It's lovely.
  2. homework - I'm grasping at straws here. Being that it's summer, I am not currently obligated to work on any sort of homework sheerly because I don't have any due. That will change, of course, when school starts back up in the fall.
  3. catch up on Lost - I frequently missed episodes of Lost, so I waited until the following weekend to watch it online. RIP Lost. :(
Things I'd like to do (but never have) on Saturdays:
  1.  take a day trip to somewhere nearby - It's always been in my plans to drop everything and go away somewhere - anywhere - for a day.
  2. I have no idea. I'm pretty content with my current Saturday itinerary.
  3. See above.
Things I hate doing on Saturdays:
  1. laundry - It needs to be done weekly, and Saturday is the most convenient day. So Laundry Day is Saturday.
  2. cleaning - I have a tendency to turn my room into a pigstye over the week, so Saturday is reserved for cleaning up that mess.
  3. getting in my car to go anywhere - I've made clear that Saturdays are my recharge day, and I hate having to leave my house and interrupt my peaceful day.
Thins I won't do on Saturdays but could if I wanted to:
  1. go to the flea market - I'm not a xenophobe, but I cannot stand going to the flea market on weekends. I mean, I can literally leave my house, walk for 5 minutes, and voila! Hello, flea market! But it's much too hectic and stressful for me to actually feel comfortable shopping there. Perhaps I'll force myself to go sometime in the near future...
  2. go out on the town and drink 'til I can't see straight - It's just not my scene or my style. Yuck.
  3. Uh................. walk the streets for money? - I reiterate my "not my scene or style" comment.
Things I really enjoy doing on Saturdays:
  1. See the "Things I like to do on Saturdays" list.
  2. Really.
  3. It's the exact same things...
Things I've never really thought to do on Saturdays:
You know, I don't really feel like I can answer this question truthfully. Because, honestly, I could pick anything:
  1. I've never thought to stand on my head for 30 minutes on a Saturday.
  2. I've never thought to go swimming in a vat of Jell-O on a Saturday.
  3. I've never thought to go hunting for squirrels while eating pasta on a Saturday.
See? It's just kind of ridiculous.
END

And that's that. I'm officially a homebody. At least I am on Saturdays. I just feel like I have to be so many places every other day of the week that I really relish rest and relaxation. Ah well... I'm ok with being a homebody one day out of the week.

In other news, last Thursday and Friday were my first official days working at my new job doing data entry for CEVA Logistics, a freight shipping company. It's not what I want to do with my life, of course, but 30 hours/wk at $10/hr sounds pretty good to me. :) Especially since I was so lacking in the financial department for a little while there.

It feels absolutey wonderful to have a job, and even though I haven't gotten a check yet I feel so much more financially stable. It's a great place to be, and it's pretty flexible so when school starts back up I'll still be able to maintain the same schedule. Glorious, says I. And yay for money!!!

I'm hoping to save up for my choir's trip to Italy in the spring as well as a camera (see picture and description below for the model at which I'm looking) with which to take pictures of my trip, I don't have a lot of time to raise a lot of money, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do it.

Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3-inch LCD (Body Only)This is the Canon EOS 7D, the bitchin-est camera out there for entry-level DSLRs. I keep going to that page and pining over my would-be camera, hoping that one day I might be able to afford it... sighhhh...

Are you currently saving for something? What is it?

Peace.
Stef.

I am saving... for a kitchen.

Yes, you read that right. We don't have a kitchen at the moment. Well, we have a 30-year-old office oven which is big enough for pizzas, and 2 hot plates. And a refridgerater that is possibly as old as the oven and makes really scary sounds sometimes.

(We just moved in together a few months ago.)

Tehrefore, I would like a kitchen. And a closet. And curtains. And carpets.

Oh, we have also planned to go on vacation this fall. Which will be my first vacation in 10 years. And we would like a car. But that may have to wait.

Yes, there's always more dreams than money to pay for them. (^v^)

(The BF dropped by and recommended the Canon 550D - he says it's way cheaper and the sensor is almost as good as that from the 7D; he's been an amateur photographer for 25 years... and I know he'd sell me for a 7D.)

What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
