So, The last link actually has a link to the other pages, but I figure you can either navigate from here or from there.
It’s a gorgeous day today, maybe I should go outside?  Or maybe I’ll build furniture, since I bought some “assembly required” furniture from Target (it was on sale, don’t worry!).  My mom nagged me the last time she was here, pointing out that I have no real furniture (which is almost completely true, except I have an “assembly required” desk my roommate picked up for free a year ago, plus a bed, and plastic pull drawers, which don’t really act as real furniture much).  I figured that, yes, it does cost some money, but I snatched them up when they were on sale (Thanks to my Mom for pointing out the sale!), and the piece of mind I’ll have from being more organized (it will be much easier to store my clothes in real dressers) and I like the idea of making my room not look so much like that of a college student.  I’m trying to be a grown up!
Well, maybe I’ll lounge outside for a little bit, take advantage of the nice weather while I can…
