Merry Christmas 2012

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 24, 2012, 8:07 PM
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas...
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.
Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.  

Hope all of you are having a wonderful and magical holiday this year - I know I am. :heart:

Leap Day & Features

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 29, 2012, 12:06 PM

Well today is the last day of February, leap day this year. I can't believe that tomorrow it's March already! Seems like Spring should be just around the corner now, I know some places already have blossoms peeking out, but today we are experiencing our first big storm of the winter. Ironic really, we've had such a mild winter this year, hardly no snow at all, then on this extra day of the month we get slammed. :lol: The weather service is calling for up to 10+ inches by this evening. White-out conditions. Heavy, wet, packy snow. I went out earlier this morning, before it got so bad, but then decided to take the rest of the day off of work after I almost got into 2 accidents from other vehicles pulling out in front of me and sliding/spinning all over the road. So it's kind of nice to be able to hunker down inside, wrapped in a blanket, enjoying a book and some computer time, and just generally being lazy. :XD:

Hope everyone is doing well. :aww:

I'm thinking of hosting a photography contest soon, with the theme of "After the Rain". Would anyone be interested? I'd need some help with judges & prizes so if you'd be up for it, let me know!

Onto the features... Here's some beautiful deviations that I've :+fav:ed recently and wanted to share with you guys!

w00t! Many Thanks....

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 8, 2012, 2:49 PM

So far in the last 24 hours I've received a wonderful response to my last blog over at CloseToNature, which was pretty much begging for points and asking members to advertise the donation pool so that we can upgrade the SuperGroup status when it expires on the 19th. :lol: But hey, I want to keep being able to do themes and featuring member's/people's artwork!

As of last night, we needed 2,136 points to reach our goal.

As of right now, we only need 614 more! :w00t:

And it was kinda funny... and creepy lol... When I logged on this morning, 4 people had donated so far. But what was funny/creepy/weird were the amounts donated.

- the 1st person donated 1000 points
- the 2nd person donated 100 points
- the 3rd person donated 10 points
- the 4th person donated 1 points

Descending multiples (I think that's what you'd call if) of 10. Weird!

Anyway, thanks so much for everyone who's donated so far! I think we will be able to reach our goal now. :D

Bad Day

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 6, 2012, 5:11 PM
My fiance moved out last week. We were going to take a break, take it slow, see how it went.
Then tonight we actually really broke up. One minute it was "I love you with all my heart blah blah blah"... now all of a sudden it's "I'm going to get a lawyer and sue you for the security deposit, for the dining room table, for the bed, and for the ring."
1) I don't want the ring. He can have the cheap piece of junk back.
2) He shared this apartment long enough he spent his half of the security deposit.
3) As far as I knew, the table and bed were GIVEN to US as apartment-warming gifts.
Now he says the bed and table were given to HIM, not US. Even though the place he is living in, he has a bed and a table there.
But he loves me SO much that he wants me to sleep on the floor, you know.
I am fine with giving him his fishing & camping stuff, and dvd racks. That is all his. But I thought, as his fiance, and as we were moving into an apartment in MY name, that people that gave US the bed and table... gave them to US. Not HIM.
I am so disgusted it's not even funny.
I am so disgusted I'm not even sad.
I'm just so disgusted.

Points & Random Features

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 5, 2012, 10:41 AM

Points Needed

My group :iconclosetonature: loses it's SuperGroup status on February 19th, and so far we only have 2,540 out of the needed 4,796. :( We still need 2256 to be able to renew, and with all my bills & rent & car payment, I just can't afford it myself. I would love to continue to do themes and features, etc at the group, so if anyone could donate ANY points, even 1, it would be so appreciated. Everyone who donates gets a feature after the group's been renewed.

:star: To donate points, go to my profile: Jenna-Rose, and you will see the donation pool.

Thanks to anyone in advance who can donate :) It's truly appreciated.

Winter is Upon Us

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 30, 2012, 2:29 PM

Winter is upon us. Finally. It took a while this year.
I am going through some difficult, personal things right now that have made me feel very sad lately.
Winter isn't helping much. Snow is one thing, but the bone-chilling cold makes everything seem more depressing.
As Robert Byrne said, "Winter is nature's way of saying, 'Up yours'."

...but it can still be quite beautiful.

Winter by Walter de la Mare

Clouded with snow
The cold winds blow,
And shrill on leafless bough
The robin with its burning breast
Alone sings now.
The rayless sun,
Day's journey done,
Sheds its last ebbing light
On fields in leagues of beauty spread
Unearthly white.
Thick draws the dark,
And spark by spark,
The frost-fires kindle, and soon
Over that sea of frozen foam
Floats the white moon.

I know I haven't been around very much lately, so I don't know how many of you are still paying attention to me around here.
But I hope everyone is doing well.

Camera for Sale

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 11, 2012, 2:46 PM

Selling my like-new Kodak camera on Ebay -…

It's a Pink Kodak EasyShare C913 digital camera, used but rarely, and in very good condition. Body has minimal signs of wear, screen and lens have no scratches. Works perfectly. Comes with user guide booklet, software disc, wrist strap, usb cord, and an insert for optional EasyShare docks. Does NOT come with a memory card (though camera has internal memory capability). Will ship with original box/packaging.

Just thought I'd put it out there ;)

Selling Some Goodies

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 8, 2012, 1:33 PM
Hi everyone, just wanted to drop a short line to let you know that I just posted some goodies for sale on Ebay. I am currently going through my dvds, video games and books, and clearing some out. Right now on ebay I have listed: Invasion the Complete Series dvd set, and the xbox games: Van Helsing, Halo 2, Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire. For more info see my ebay store:…

I will probably be adding some more dvds and games in the next week or so, and I will also be adding a Kodak digital camera sometime soon.

Hope everyone is doing well. :) Hope to do a more person journal soon.

Happy Halloween...

A belated Happy Halloween everyone! Anyone remember me? I'm still alive and active!
