Well, I guess the cats outta the bag! Yep, I got my braces off finally! I mentioned it on twitter, so a few of you guys knew, but the rest of you noticed yesterday. I guess I never really noticed what a difference it made. I also have to wear a retainer, as you can see in today's pictures and it is annoying as hell but I guess that's life. It is soooo awesome buying efferdent too, I love getting strange looks when I buy denture cleaner for my retainers. -_-

I am almost in the home stretch for school, only three and a half weeks! I have so much left to do in these next weeks, I can't even count how many papers I have to do because my mind turns to mush when I try. I hate how much I miss everyone but I know that I am almost done. Hopefully this time next year I will be buying a cap and gown and posting about more than all the homework that I have to do. I also have been trying to eat well these past two weeks, I have limited the amount of meat I eat because it makes me sick. I usually stick to poultry and fish anyway, but I have been eating more whole grains and eggs. I feel better so that is good. I am not perfect by any means but sometimes I just can't choke down anymore fries. Hopefully I can keep this up, so when I do eat something like pizza I can enjoy it more, instead of feeling sick and bloated.

So as you can see, I have been editing my pictures in flickr. Yes, I have succumbed. I now have a two-year subscription and I plan on using it the crap out of it. I am not sure if I will edit the pics all the time, I know people do, but I think sometimes it doesn't make them 'real'. I am only editing them in a creative way of course, leave it to me to make the pics look Orton-ish, but what the heck, let's leave the pimples. As you can see, Kyle took these photos, I am getting kinda used to taking some on my own, but I like not having to run back and forth in front of the camera in the parking lot. It always seems like people feel like coming outside just as I am getting ready to pose too, what is up with that? Damn you people for coming outside and....stuff.

At least a break from all the craziness to see Deathly Hallows!! It is the first fun thing that I have done in awhile, I can't even remember the last movie I saw in a theater. I am planning on dressing up somehow, and work is going to be horrible the next day, but I am sooo ready to see Harry! XD

    I on the other hand have had friction with copy and paste and my novel..argh..I'm almost there..and then to wonder just how I get the thing to this Nanowrimo page. As if I didn't have enough to do on an ordinary day. But the snow has missed us..once again.

  3. So a wonderful week, then. I love your outfit. Have fun!

  4. I will never forget the day I got my braces off years ago. It was one of the best days of my life, no joke! Huzzah for you! :D

  5. Pretty top and it fits you so well. Plus your hair looks lovely.

    I had braces for years when I was young and getting them off was such a relief.

    School will end soon: there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there, buddy.

    One time I was taking blog photos in the front of my house and had to stop because I thought a car stopped on the side of the road just to watch. Creepy.

  11. wauw that shirt is amazing!! I want it tooo :)



  12. Congratulations on getting the braces off! It's alright, the time with the retainer flies by because first you wear it all the time... then you wear it every second day... then you only wear it at night... you'll get used to it!

  13. I really like the colour of the top and you carry it off so well. Congrats on having your braces off. I can only imagine what a change that must be.

  14. You look BEAUTIFUL! your outfit is lovely too. I used to have braces, I had them for about two years ago. It felt like a miracle the day I got them off. I have to wear a retainer too. I used to wear it 24 hours a day for 6 months but now I only have to wear them at night. I got my braces off about 4 and a half years ago. :)
