365 Project Update

Posted by annagrace under About

Hi friends and followers! At this point I’m so far behind on posts that I don’t even want to think about it… You may be wondering what’s up. Well, to put it simply, last semester was a health nightmare for me! To give a bit more detail, I had several bad Rheumatoid Arthritis flare ups throughout the semester, some of which I mentioned already, but not every little flare up. Then I had a bad sinus infection just before Thanksgiving, then, three weeks before Christmas, I started to have really bad stomach pain. A week and three doctors later, they finally discovered that my gallbladder was inflamed and I had gall stones. So after a consultation with a surgeon, we decided it was necessary to have my gallbladder removed. SO I had surgery on the 20th of December and am still in recovery, but doing much, much better!

Needless to say, I haven’t been up to doing posts. Over Thanksgiving I was stressing a lot about this 365 project and how I was going to catch up, and I finally realized, with the help of my wonderful father, that I had enough in my life stressing me out and that while I should finish 365 creative projects eventually, the goal date of Feb. 2nd was really unrealistic, so I should set another goal. Obviously even more things have happened since Thanksgiving, so now I’m even more determined to not make this project stressful, and continue to make it more of a stress reliever, on my own time.

Because of this, my new goal completion date is May 10, which is two days after the last exam day of the semester when I will FINALLY have completed my bachelors degree of science in interior design! (yep… Still in school. That health stuff effected more than just this blog…) This date is a good three months plus past the original February date, so I may finish before that, but I’m going to pace myself and take it one day at a time!

You may have also noticed that I haven’t been putting the number of days behind I am anymore. That was one major piece of advice I took from my father, because he and I both realized it was stressing me out even more! So! Just posts, as much as I can, eventually totaling up to 365 days!

I have been working on some things over the past few weeks, mainly Christmas presents, so I have a few standby posts that I’ll start with!

I really appreciate all of the support I have gotten throughout this project from friends, family, and blog followers that I don’t even know! Without you all, I couldn’t push through til the end through sickness and health! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season, however you celebrated, and that this new year brings great things for you all. I certainly hope that this year brings better health for me and I strive to have a better, more positive outlook on everything!

Love you all!

Delayed Posts Due to Technical Difficulties…

Posted by annagrace under Uncategorized

So…. I’m getting further and further behind on posts. I hoped to catch up on some quickly by doing one song for each year like I talked about and busting through several in a day, but computer issues and just all around shitty situations this week have prevented that.

The piece on my laptop that has the keyboard and track┬ápad isn’t working. I took it to the Apple store and they told me that it was no problem and I would get a new one for free because it was some kind of factory recall. But when he pulled up the serial number, he saw that I am past my warranty by 36 DAYS!!! So, therefore, it would be $160 to fix it… and I don’t have that money. If I have any extra money, it’s going to my car, rent, and the bajillion other people that want my money, and not towards a really old computer that has other serious issues! Needless to say, I didn’t get it fixed. The good news is that the hard drive and everything else work pretty much fine (I replaced the hard drive 2 years ago and got a bigger one), so if I use and external keyboard and mouse, I can still use my laptop. It’s a major inconvenience and sort of defeats the purpose of a laptop, but at least I can use it.

The other shitty (and I’m sorry to use that word… but that’s just what it is!) issues that happened this week are too numerous and ridiculous to name, and honestly I’m sick of thinking about it, so I won’t be posting again tonight. I will hopefully feel up to it tomorrow, but we’ll have to see!

I’m sorry I’m so far behind… but at this point, I need to just take a minute for myself and focus on getting through this crap. I will be completing this 365 project on time still because that is one firm goal I have set for myself, it’s just going to take awhile to catch up, so bear with me!

Send positive vibes my way!!

delayed posts..

Posted by annagrace under Uncategorized

As you may have noticed, I’m a few days behind on posts. Finals has put bit of a damper on the blog. And today I drove straight to Nashville right after work, and am leaving tomorrow morning for Atlanta and my cousin’s wedding! I hope to get at least one quick post in tomorrow, but no guarantees… I will definitely catch up ASAP! Just bear with me!

Days 83 & 84 postponed for a couple of days…

Posted by annagrace under About

I hate to do this after getting so behind last week, but I have seriously neglected my schoolwork lately. This week is the last week of classes before final exams and I’ve got to push through an exam, Astronomy labs, and 2 history papers that I have been putting off like a crazy person. All this will hopefully be done by Wednesday, but it might be Friday, so until then, I’m going to have to postpone this blog for the time being. I will really miss it, but I’ve got to push to the end of the semester! I promise that once this craziness is over, I’ll catch up with the blog ASAP!

So, I was planning on doing a project for my dad’s birthday today, but don’t have time…. But I think he completely understands! Love you Dad! Happy Birthday (again… I think that’s the 4th time I’ve said it today?)!

See you all on the flip side!

Postponed posts… STILL! Left phone @ work…

Posted by annagrace under Uncategorized

So… epic fail on my part. I did do a post for day 75 (Sunday) yesterday, but I fell asleep before I remembered to post it! And I was going to be behind a day, but I wasn’t too worried about it. Now, I actually did a project at work todat, but I forgot my phone there, which has the pictures on it… So it looks like I’m even further behind. And, I have paper due tomorrow, and today was horrible, so, yeah, you don’t want to hear my rants. BUT I will try and at least do one or two posts tomorrow after class (and I get my phone back…)! So, be on the lookout for days 75-77 over the next few days! I will get caught up, dangit!

Day 50 postponed, internet down!

Posted by annagrace under Uncategorized

So we had a pretty major lightening storm today, with a big bolt striking down near my apartment. Apparently it knocked out our internet… so no project today! (On my Droid right now) Look for one tomorrow, internet permitting.
