So a week later...

There's a reason why this is coming so late. I waited until I calmed down from the truly HELLISH trip I took to the doctor. I did NOT talk to her about dieting, in fact, she never brought it up despite the fact it was on my form. She was COMPLETELY incompetent and kept me waiting for 40 minutes.

I'm not really sure who her normal clients are, but that was beyond ridiculous. I waited for her for 40 minutes, for a 12 minute appointment where she didn't cover ANYTHING I asked her to. She ran tests for things I did NOT want and I didn't realize what the tests were for until after she'd already done them. I'm beyond upset with my experience there.

If anyone tells you to go to Fenway Health, DON'T. They're full of shit or they hate you. Either way, it was a ridiculously shitty experience.

Sorry for the rant, I just thought you should all be informed. I started a diet which I will talk about later when I'm not as infuriated.

I started this blog because I wanted to do more crafting and hoped this would inspire me to do that and honestly, it has. I've been knitting ever since I started it and I've been crocheting, but what's really bothering me right now is my weight.

No. I'm not overweight, I know that, but I Have gained weight and I'm unhappy with that. I also don't like the trend in gaining weight and since I'm getting into my 20's(and I hear your body changes a lot as you get into your 20's), I need to start being a LOT more concerned.

So, I'm going to the doctor tomorrow to get myself checked out. I'm going to ask for some diet information while I'm there, ask my blood type and ask them what I can do to make myself look how I want it to.

I was 114lbs the last time I went to a doctor-I guess we'll see what the verdict is. Fuck this.

Yahoo domains? Thoughts?

This isn't my first blog-but since starting this newest blog I've been thinking about setting up a website. I have a lot of ideas for one and I kind of thought why not?

My sister was talking to me about getting a domain name at yahoo? I'm not sure how yahoo domains work-but I remember setting up an account on one of those other domain sites was kind of hell so I'm a bit weary of it. What do you think of domains yahoo?

In other news-I made the corned beef and cabbage, but STILL don't have a camera, so more news on that will come later! It was an adventure though, I'll tell you that. Till' next time!

Helloooo Irish Food!

Since deciding to learn new recipes I've ALSO decided to try to conquer them by cuisine. I've decided to start off with Irish food because I'm Irish and honestly, when I was younger I always lamented the fact that the Irish have... well, we make balls food, let's be honest. We put too much butter on sandwiches AND our food is bland and unenjoyable. That being said I STILL want to learn how to make it and hopefully in my quest to make Irish food I will end up making it-I dunno flavorful? I know it's a long shot, but bear with me, hah.

I made potatoes last night, but I'm dedicating tonight to learning how to make corned beef and cabbage. Stay tuned!

In other news-fuck this weather, New England. Remember that time you faked it and said it might be warm? Yeah, rude. RUDE.

The plight of humanity and my geopolitics class.

Seriously. Your comments aren't clever nor are they relevant. Also, learn what you're talking about before you correct people and don't depend on half-glanced information to defend your incorrect position.

Man with the black glasses: I don't like you.

I know I've only just started on this, but I keep seeing these food blogs and I've gotta say, I want in. I'm not sure when I will make a list of foods that I'm going to make!!

My List Thus Far

I realized that I hadn't put up my list yet! So I'm going to post it here. I should note that it's not really a complete list. It's sort of a working list, like when I stumble upon a craft I like I might add it, you know? Right now it's just the basics of doing things like this.

But here we go!

1. Learn to Knit
2. Learn to crochet
3. Sew a dress.
4. Make an amigurami.
5. Learn 10 different origamis(is that how you pluralize that??)
6. Make 10 different patterns(with knitting)
7. Make a book-box
8. Crochet a scarf
9. Knit a scarf of my own pattern
10. Make tea-soaps
11. Build a three-tier plate
12. Knit gloves
13. Sew a dress

I know the list is short right now-but I'm still sort of building it! No judgement?

I set out to learn how to knit last night and I was NOT disappointed! My friend taught me how and I haven't stopped since :]. Did you know that "knit" is a type of stitch?? Well, it is!

I learned how to "knit" and pearl. I'll add pictures when I get a chance!!
