2011 is here!

Happy New Year!

So, 2011 is upon us, my new years resolution is to once again lose weight. I pretty much gained back all the weight I lost, which sucks but I did it once I can do it again. I just really need to get back into a workout routine, that's the one step I need to really kick this beautiful habit back into motion.

I finished reading Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory McGuire and I very much enjoyed it. I haven't seen the Broadway musical but I really want to, although I've heard there are vast differences between the book and the play. I've seen the trailer for the musical and I can already tell it's different. The book was good, had very exquisite prose, and presented an entirely different view of Oz from the one Dorothy gives us in The Wizard of Oz. The Oz in Wicked is a lot darker, very similar to our own world, and presents the infamous wicked witch as Elphaba, someone who, though offensive and pessimistic at times, is simply misunderstood and very much a human. It's dark, kind of funny, and memorable. It's fun to read about when Dorothy finally drops into oz too.

I am now reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I'm only halfway through but it's good so far. I did see the movie with Julie Roberts beforehand, but I liked the movie too.

School is around the corner! I still have to register for classes but my financial aid already came in and I just need to get some last minute stuff organized but I'm continuing my education. I'm excited to go back after the semester off.

I have a fauxhawk now, it was time to change my hair, plus it actually looks good on me :). Also I finally tried a red velvet cupcake and it was to DIE for. Mmm so delicious!

Ooh! I watched Black Swan and it was really good, creepy but interesting and worth the price of the movie ticket. EDIT: I noticed that with the lack of updates over 2010 I forgot to inlcude that I turned 21 in June, I'm an adult now!
