My new website is complete. Visit me at FreshSamantha Dot Org.

I registered for classes yesterday. It was an exercise in frustration, but I am now the proud attendee of 4 classes. I'm taking German II; Myth, Ritual, and Iconography; Chamber Singers; and Roman Civilization. I'm going every day, but Tuesdays and Thursdays will span Steven's class time. I'll hit the gym while he's in class and then go to my class while he's doing paperwork. Other than that, I'm at school till 4:20 on Mondays and Wednesdays and 2:20 on Fridays. It's a decent schedule.

I also am going to be switching my major during or at the end of this semester. I am going to major in Art. Like I wrote as a kindergartener, I am going to be an art teacher when I grow up. The English department cured me of wanting to graduate as an english major. I still need to go see the Department Chair, but that can be done some time later this week.

I finished the website today. It's officially totally live. The bulletion board is officially up and ready for people to register. The address is You don't have to be a member of the bridal party to join, so feel free. Right now, I just want some activity on there. Steven and I are the only two users, currently.

Bleh, almost time to go, it's snowing, and I have a headache.

I finally finished the wedding party section tonight. The bulletion board will have to be installed, but I need to hear from support first. Officially now, 2/3s of the site is live. I'll finish up the guest section over my spring break and then I'll have nothing but maintenance to do. Not bad for 10 months out.

We started to check out another church tonight. Our friend Bethany attends Old South Church and go married there last December. Even at the full, non-member price, it's cheaper than Channing Church and it's also nicer. I also did out some projected costs and right now, with the catering, reception hall rental, and church, we're coming in between $3100 and $3500. This is out of an estimated budget of $5000. We have a DJ, which will take an addition $500. That leaves us between $1000 and $1400 for a photographer, a cake, invitations, and favours. Luckily, we may end up having one of Mom's friends' boyfriends make our cake for cost. He's a professional pastry chef and Mom says his cakes are really good. If not, we have an estimate of $320 from one of the top bakeries in the area. Beth also suggested that we talk to the pastor and explain our precarious financial situation and see if they can work with us. Invites will be around $100 and we will print response postcards ourselves. Guests will have the option to RSVP online, so we may cut stamps on some of them.

This is starting to really feel like it's coming together. When we first started looking, last summer, I never thought we'd be able to do this for $5000. The average wedding around here runs about $30k. Original estimates had us around $12k. We've really cut our guest list and we've given up on the idea of a hotel wedding. It's really giving us a chance to see what the wedding is actually about-- the celebration of our marriage. People will have just as much fun at a hall as they will at a fancy hotel. We have an amazing DJ and our caterer is awesome. My dress was a great bargain and we're lucky enough to have very creative friends and family so we don't have to worry about decorations.

I'm starting to get really excited. All I need now is to be motivated enough to get my ass to the gym so I can look amazing.

I fucking rock so much. I finally managed to install Gallery on our wedding website. Unfortunately, Gallery doesn't come with any instructions at all, so it took me an hour to do something that probably would have taken me like 10 if I a) had instructions and b) wasn't so damned sick. So now, I'm going to install it on DevilGrrl before I forget how to. Maybe that will actually convince me to update my own website more often.

Evidently, I am the only person in the world who can't get WordPress to work right on my website. I am waiting for DreamHost to get back to me about fixing the error. Sigh.. Well, at least that gives me something to do later on.

Not totally done yet, but you can view our official website here.

Oh, and we picked a date. Go us.

I'm going to redo DevilGrrl.Com. I've been thinking about what I want to do for a while. Today, I finally had an epiphany about how I want things redone and I figured what the hell... I'll start setting up things now. I've never had problems with setting things up, I've never had any complaints from either of my hostees.

Oh, but nothing goes smoothly. I tried to set up a blog for when I finish the site so I could just throw up a frame set and stick in the blog until I do some real work. Well, haha, WordPress showed me! It looked like it installed fine, but oh no, nothing worked. So I reinstalled it. Lo and behold, it told me the directory was full. I logged on and, yes, it was indeed full of things. I retried logging in to install. Nothing, again. I try to delete the file so I can start over. Now is when the fun started.

It crashed my FTP programme and then refused to abort.

I had to delete the whole damn thing. I'm starting over now and if it doesn't work, I'm going to bed and I'll work with it tomorrow.

First Day

So the classes went basically well, except that I have a huge walk between Geology and Writing II. Evidently, I may be able to catch a shuttle, which would be fantastic. I don't mind walking, but a long walk when it's cold and icy is not my idea of fun. The english professor is about 5 years older than me, which is a little depressing. I should be out of college by now, not going in as a freshman. At least after this year, I can start right into the main part of my major.

Adding to my consolation is the fact that my laptop should be in this week-end. I need to get my wireless network set up soon, but still... I can't wait to get it and start customising programmes. I think I'm going to keep Firefox as my main browser. I can't imagine going back to IE anymore. Plus, I love Thunderbird's junk mail filter. Mm, I should check for updates today, while I'm thinking about it.

Boldly on to work, which sucks. Despite giving them an availability schedule, they have managed to totally fuck up my hours. I'm supposed to be in at 4 on Tuesdays. This poses a huge problem: I have a lab until 5, which means that I don't even get into Weymouth until 5:30, at the earliest. If I go straight to work, that means no time to eat, either. They also have me working until close a bunch of nights. There's no way I can work until midnight, come home, have to eat dinner/do homework, and get to bed at a reasonable hour. I go to bed around midnight, for christ's sake!

I get to go in tonight, with a typed letter this time and once again remind Peter that 10pm availability does not mean midnight. School is more important than a crappy part time job. Plus, I was promised that I would not have to stay that late when I was hired and I would still have about 20 hours. Whatever.

I just had a burst of inspiration. I'm going to go start on my website redesign.
devilgrrl: (Default)
DreamHost completely rocks my world. They just upped all of their plans, so I now have a ton more space, more email addresses, and, best of all, I can have three full domains now. The temptation to go and register a new domain is really strong... Maybe when I have a little more expendable cash.

Anyhow, some of the Halloween pictures are up, if anyone is interested. I had some problems with the *.htaccess because of the way that I orginally spelled the directory, after having forgotten it wasn't case insensitive. I've got to finish off the rest of the camera before I can post the rest of the pictures. Hopefully, I'll have that done before Thanksgiving.
devilgrrl: (Default)
I am so insanely tired and I have absolutely no clue why. I'm going to blame it on the time change coming up at 2am, which I will most likely not be awake to see. I'm actually surprised that I'm awake even now. I want to see the end of the baseball game though.

Work was insane tonight. I made something like $12 in incentive tonight, which is fantastic, because I realised that I won't get my time and a half on this week's cheque, but on next week's. Oh well. I'll need the extra cash.

Shit, I just realised that's almost an extra $80, time before and after the mall opens/closes nonwithstanding, since I'll be making a bit more than $11 an hour. That's seriously more than I made working the week before last. Yay for time and a half on Sundays and holidays!

Wow, the Citi anti-identity theft commercials are scary...

I think I want to change around the colours on my page. They've been these colours for a while and I'm kind of tired of them. I actually should redo the website, too, but I don't know if I'll have time until the winter break. I'm not sure what I want to do with it, really, since I don't have too much time to update, with school and all.

Ok, off to La-La Land. Wee.
devilgrrl: (Default)
I don't completely hate the job. It's boring as hell, everything's manual, and I forgot how much the floors in there made my feet hurt, but I don't totally want to quit-- yet. It's $7.50 an hour and time and a half on Sundays and I only have to work every other week-end, which is cool. This means I have time to do homework, see my grandparents, and, hopefully, get up to see Dawn a couple times this winter. Anyhow, my "set" schedule is Tuesday nights, Thursdays days, alternating Saturdays, and one Sunday a month. I kind of wish that they offered direct deposit, but you can't win them all.

I need to get better shoes so badly, though. My feet hurt like crazy at the end of the day, which I kind of expected, but my knees where killing me, which is not good. So, yea, first couple of paycheques? I know where they're going: a couple more bras and new, comfy shoes.

I did nothing of any use today. I was technically going to clean or something when I got home, but I was sidetracked by more favourable option, most of which did not involve soap or dirty laundry. I'll do that shit tomorrow.

Trying to load a website, but the computer has alternately sucked and blown today. Sometime this week-end, I need to burn all the important stuff on my computer to CD-R and try and add some memory in. I'm hoping that works, because there's no way I can afford a new machine. Bah.

Score. I love this song: Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart. I like the Swans cover better, but this will do.

I should go to bed soon. I have two tests tomorrow, one minor one in French and a major exam in AbPsych, plus papers from English Lit come back.. Yay, stress.
devilgrrl: (Default)
I finally finished the paper. It's totally typed and cited and all that happy malarkey. Now all I need to do is bravely venture on to finishing my half of the oral report on Queen Elizabeth I. That, I at least have till the 22nd. to finish.

God, I'm boring.

I'm thinking about possibly putting up a downloads page on my site. I made an awesome Tare Panda theme for my desktop that I could put up, as well as well as an MP3 of the month and maybe something else. I'm not sure yet. This will definitely be after my major work for the semester is done. Eh, who knows... I'm trying not to stress out.

I'll know tomorrow whether or not I'm going to still have a job. I am definitely not calling that cunt-whore back so she can yell at me and tell me how she does everything herself there and what an awful ingrate I am for wanting to have two days off to do my paper. Yea, I'm an awful person.. I covered for her Sunday morning so she could study for her bio test. Jesus, I just walk all over her.

I'm going to go and indulge in some Dynomite now that the paper is done. I deserved that and the macchiato that I bought today.
devilgrrl: (Default)
So, what have I accomplished this spring break? Nothing! On Tuesday, I tore a damn ligament in my ankle, so my plans, which included hitting the gym every day, were shot to hell. I've basically been sitting here, high on tylox, watching my foot swell. Woo!

I did, however, get the new DevilGrrl layout done and up. Sushi is very exciting. I'm not sure if I want to redo it again.. My white layouts never last long.

Gross. I just realised how swollen my foot is. Ew ew ew.

I finally got new sneakers today. Much as I loved my vans, they were really starting to fall to pieces. I picked up a pair of New Balance- everyone I know who has them thinks they're awesome.

There was an awesome show on mummies on the Learning Channel tonight. It made Matt a bit ill, but I thought it was the cat's pyjamas. I completely missed my calling as a pathologist. They've actually had awesome programming on lately, which is a nice change-up from all the "real crime" programmes. Meh, at least I've been able to read more.

I finished Pure by Rebbecca Ray a couple days ago. I liked it. It (unfortunately?) reminded me of what it was like to be an awkward teenager again. The author really had a good grasp on the characters and, of course, I'm a complete sucker for anything that uses British slang. I'm reading Norwegian Wood by someone or another right now. I'm too lazy to get the book from the other room. I haven't really gotten too far into it, but it's all right, so far.

This is horribly addictive.
devilgrrl: (Default)
After all you heard about it on TV, Cipro really isn't that cool. It looks like every other damn antibiotic out there. The people in Brooks did look at me funny when I dropped it off, though.

So, I finally got new glasses.

It's funny how one little thing, like new frames, can change how you look. Potentially, I will have some new pictures of them soon.

I'm still working on the new DevilGrrl layout. It's currently done, but I decided last minute not to launch it and instead totally change the frames around. It was just one of those wham! I see god and must do accordingly things.

Did that even make sense?

I have so much homework I'm ignoring and I definitely do not feel like working tonight. Come to think, I don't much feel like updating anymore, either.
devilgrrl: (Default)
Ugh. My website is once again down. This upsets me mainly because I cannot check my email. Why is it that every single time I switch servers, they go down, after being up forever? This is especially annoying since I really like MegMaster. Oh well, I hope it's just a server glitch.

I'm up early. I have places to go and people to see today. In all actuality, I'm going to school to price books and try to change a class and then, grocery shopping. It beats the alternative though, which is sitting home being bored. I need to get some gas, as well, if I plan on going anywhere at all today. They like it when I pay all in change. Really.

I should do something with my hair. It's at that scary, growing out stage where nothing really looks all that good.

Dammit. I'm bored and I need coffee.
devilgrrl: (Default)
So... My website is back up and I really need to update it. Maybe I'll do that tonight. I'm still working on the new layout. I like MegMaster so far. It seems to be fairly reliable.

And yay, I get 5 POP3 accounts.

Show tomorrow night... I'm excited to get out of my house again. I'm starting to feel like a hermit. I talk to the junk in my room. Next Tuesday is the Isis show and sometime in January, I'm going skiing with Bill. I haven't been skiing in years.

Mm, muffins

I just finished registering for my classes next semester and signing my soul away in student loans. I'm actually fairly excited to start the classes that I've picked out, mostly because they're basically all reading and writing. I'm geeké, non?

Please marvel at the above indieness.

I haven't been writing a lot because work has pretty much sucessfully taken over my life. For example, today, I am working from 1 to 10pm tonight and will probably stay later because I really don't feel like being raped and murdered during my trek to the uncharted distances also known as employee parking. Whose hot idea was it to stick all the employees out in East Bumfuck, away from light and employee entrances? This man should be up for a Darwin.

I realise that I've used that incorrectly, but it gets my point across.

I'm trying to work on an update for DevilGrrl, but I'm having a hard time finding the sort of pictures I want. If anyone has any tasteful BDSM erotica, please send them to me. I'm also probably going to regret asking for this.

I'm going to be getting a couple new tattoos at the end of the month. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to have the cash to do, but I have several options. I'd really like to get my backpiece done, but if I can't afford that, I'll do my stars.

I'm going to go bake muffins.
devilgrrl: (Default)
Well, DevilGrrl is down for the time being. I had to switch host rather abruptly. Mmph. I want to be back up and online by Wednesday at the latest.

There is nothing else happening here. Matt bought Devil May Cry, so I no longer have television access and I need to get ready for work. Again.
devilgrrl: (Default)
My computer really needs to be rebooted and left alone for a little while. For god knows what reason, it refuses to load any pages or boot anything without an error. Ugh. I really need to call in on my warrantee, but I already have every downloaded and set up the way I want it.

I can’t wait to get my stuff from Delia*s to come. I’m assuming that it should be here by Thursday at the latest, as well as my shoes from Alloy. I love getting packages, even if I already know what will be in them.

I’m going to try and redesign the page today. For some reason, all the lavender is getting to me. I was thinking about doing something with wires or maybe so random image that I have on my computer. I also need to call Blaine today and make sure they have all my financial aid info. Goodie.

I want to go back to bed. I hate mornings, especially since my night ended late because of the whole shopping thing. Shopping online is amazing.

I think I’m going to King Richard’s Faire with Cara next week-end, depending on my plans and my funds. If not, I will probably drive to Taunton Mall. If not this week-end for the mall, probably the 29th. I also need to get my haircut before I get my picture taken for my ID.

Well, it looks like I can finally go now that certain people are ready.
