Still a Twitter addict. Its gotten pretty bad actually. I need to stop checking it so much. Rejoined WW. First weigh-in was today and I was down 3 pounds, and I only worked out 1 day. I KNOW what to do, I just can't do it alone. This time I'm not leaving until I hit goal. So far I like the new Momentum plan, they've made some good changes that fit into my lifestyle. There is a meeting right down the street from my apt, and there are 3 Saturday morning meetings, so I can make one no matter what time I get up. And I will be going to a meeting when I go to Atlanta in 2 weeks, I've already found a location.

I have spring interviews @ GT next week for work, so I'm looking forward to that trip. It will be nice to get out of Orlando, I haven't been anywhere yet this year.

Just did my taxes this morning, and I freaking OWE once again this year. How is this possible? Its official, I spend too much damn $ on stuff I really don't need. This weekend I will be going over my budget with a fine-tooth comb and figuring out what I can pare down. I really need to get this together. I did take a look @ my W-4 this morning, and it was set to 3! I thought it was at 2, so I lowered it. Overall though, I'm getting screwed. As a single woman with no dependents and no property, I can't get any of the big/good deductions, so The Man is always taking a good chunk of the salary that I worked hard to get after slaving away in grad school. Something has got to change, like a promotion.

Speaking of promotions, hopefully I will get a call soon about that job in Atlanta. I really want it, and it would be a promotion, so I know I'd be getting way more $ in salary.

Got a chance to see "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" yesterday. It was predictable, being a prequel and all, but I enjoyed it. It was entertaining and sufficiently bloody.

Oh, and lastly, I've decided to start transitioning to natural hair. I got my first relaxer at like age 5, and for a couple years in middle school I was relaxer free, but I always got my hair pressed. I've never dealt with my natural texture, and I keep seeing these beautiful heads of natural hair and I'm always so jealous. So I'm looking forward to the journey. I'm going to transition for at least 1 year, but I'm shooting for 18 months. Got any tips?
