Half Full Friday and Blog of the Week

Eyegirl is on hiatus for the month of August but I've decided to continue with Half Full Friday in her absence because I like having a written record of all the positives in my life.  It really helps to look back on them when I'm down.
~I'm happy because...

I colored my hair!

I got an award from George!  I'll be posting it on Monday.

My chi's are the lucky recipients of Draco's Paw It Forward!

My volunteer job is fun!

I had fun with friends this past weekend!

I got to wish upon a shooting star last night!

Thank you to everyone for your kind words and advice to my post on Monday.  I really do appreciate it.  I kind of felt bad afterwards though.  I just needed to vent, I really wasn't looking for sympathy although it probably seemed like I was. 

I still haven't heard anything back about financial aid for the 4 year university.  I've decided that's really the direction I want to go rather than the 2 year school.  Once I hear whether or not I've been accepted, I'm going to start applying for scholarships for additional financial aid.  Right now, they're just waiting on my high school transcripts and once they receive them, they'll let me know if I 've been accepted or not.  I've requested my transcripts already, just waiting for them to be sent and received.

This week's Blog of the Week is a fun one!  It's a relatively new website, just a week or two old.  The author has chosen to remain anonymous.  It's similar to Awkward Family Photos and People of Walmart so if you enjoyed those websites, you'll enjoy this one too!

The main difference between this site and AFP and POW is that many of the pictures are submitted by the readers themselves and several of them include personal anecdotes to go along with it.  The website describes itself as "Everything awkward about adolescence memorialized on the internet for the world to see."  If you're brave enough to send your picture in, there's a place on the site to submit it.

Some of the pictures really aren't that bad.  Then there's others that you can't help but laugh at or wonder what the heck they must've been thinking.  Sadly, there's too many pictures featuring my beloved 80's styles.

I've added a few of my favorites here for your viewing pleasure.

You always find the BEST websites! This one is pretty dam funny!

I really didn't get the feeling that you were looking for sympathy, so don't even think that. Everyone needs a chance to vent once in a while, and by sharing a bad situation one is in helps to get different view points and advice! I really hope and pray that your situation will turn around for the better for you.

Hugs, Nadine
