So I switched it up a little on here. Moved some things around, changed the background and whatnot. I also added some tabs across the top that I plan on expanding on as time goes by. I wrote a pretty sweet packing list last night, nothing like the one that gives me so much amusement, but it was ok. I have a rough draft in a yellow spiral bound notebook, but I had given it some actual thought, organized it, and made hilarious comments. Alas, blogspot decided to be a douche and did not save it. Ugh.
I also went to find a hiking backpack today and am even more confused than when I started. For one, I'm so glad I didn't buy one online because they're serious about trying them out and fitting them to your body. There is an awesome outdoors store here in town that was so incredibly helpful today, and we picked out a pack, except that pack is $279. And it's not even that cute. I ended up letting them know that I'd have to finish my list and make sure that was exactly what I need before I spend that much money. When I got home I chatted with a friend who has literally travelled the world and I asked about her backpack. She gave me some good suggestions and I felt much better about not rushing to buy one right away. I'm going to take a little road trip on Monday and see what I can find a giant outdoors store about an hour and a half south of here. Maybe if I find something I like, I'll ask my little local store if they can order it for me. I would much rather spend that kind of money locally.
I also went shopping for a dress to wear on new years eve and was sooorely disappointed to find nothing cute that fit me. Yes, I am 27 years old and have hips and an ass, but I would still love to find a cute fun dress to wear. I hate that all the cheap fun sparkly dresses are cut for prepubescent bodies. (And even more disgusted knowing that's who wears them, put on some pants, high schoolers!) I had to have a come to Jesus meeting with myself after being so let down about what I look like. This is madness!
Edit: Packing list is up! If you're going to make fun of me, at least do it to my face so I can rethink things that might be over the top! I'm serious, input is more than welcome, just be polite please :D
