Music Anyone?

March 1, 2007

I got my Nickel Creek ticket in the mail today (which is not the point of this entry, although I am very excited about that) and along with it there was an advertisement for saying that if I only sign up for a subscription I will get a 14-day free trial and 50 free downloads! Well, turns out that there’s only 25 free downloads, but I did it anyway. Reason being, I have realized that I am so out of it regarding new music lately, and I don’t want to be. So far I’ve only used up one of my free songs. Please give me suggestions! I have no idea what to pick! Leave me a comment with a…

The Consequences of Being a Nursing Student

February 27, 2007

I just wanted to keep you all up-to-date on my ongoing toenail saga that began way back in November.

Although I was vehemently opposed to Dreamgirls or any of its participating members winning anything simply because I thought that the movie was painfully overrated (and by that I mean that the movie was PAINFUL and OVERRATED), I must say that Jennifer Hudson was pretty adorable last night, and now I can’t help but like her. 2. I noticed something quite disconcerting. Exhibit A: Greg Kinnear, actor in Little Miss Sunshine:…

Here We Go

February 23, 2007

So, I’ve been blogging on Xanga for about three and a half years now, and I admit that I like doing it. A couple of months ago I started considering leaving Xanga to start a “real” blog. Then a week or two ago I was bored in class so I bought a domain name. It was so cheap! Only $1.24! Then I realized that I have to find someone to actually host the website for me. So I looked into it and discovered that it would cost me $6.95 a month if I signed up for two years. OK, I can handle that. Done! Then later I checked my bank statement and found that they had charged me the entire…
