i'm a winner :]

that's more than just motivational talk.

i won this!
i've been reading kara's blog for a couple months now and she is so much fun. she has great stories that make me reminisce about high school, she's a fabulous photographer (she recently added some new lovelies to her etsy), and her scrapbook pages are so inspiring. i'm so excited that i won her hambly giveaway :]

after a long chat with my mom last night about everything under the sun i immediately felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. i don't know what it is, but my mom just knows exactly what to say sometimes. its really easy to talk to her and even if it's not about anything in particular i just love talking to her.

i feel extremely motivated today. i've been searching the san francisco area for possible job opportunities and dreaming about how wonderful it would be to live there next year. i want to update my resume and apply. i'm trying really hard to stop worrying about the future and start making things happen. i need to start planning to apply to dental school, and start studying for the DAT. i need to utilize the internship and career center while i still have the opportunity. the help is here, i just need to find it, and that means looking for it. here's to being more proactive and less apprehensive.

i finished another layout, this one is for the creative type challenge. it was all about celebrating your handwriting, and according to these guidelines, my handwriting revealed that i was original, emotionally well-balanced, focused and organized (i definitely own a label maker).

Hi Mallory - Long time no talk to! Sorry, I haven't been blogging much lately, but I've been on Facebook. I looked you up on Facebook, but there were sooo many Mallory Phillips. How do I find you on Facebook? The Facebook profile link on the left of your blog doesn't seem to be working for me at the moment. Hope to catch up with you soon!

Oops, I forgot, I'm Large Marge in Redding, California on Facebook... ;-)

Large Marge said...

OMG - Are you in Davis? Too funny! I'm in Redding.. I was looking at your Etsy page.

I really want to buy one of your Cloud 9 prints. Are there some left? If so, please reserve one for me..

Talk to you soon!
