#97: Project 10 Pan - Lip Gloss Edition

I love makeup. I could justify spending hundreds of dollars on make up more than I can on clothing. When I'm feeling down I tend to do some retail therapy and almost 90% of the time it's make up I end up buying. Wearing make up always makes me feel better and nothing beats red lipstick.

My favorite products are nail polish, lip gloss, and mascara.  While I enjoy eye shadow and everything else, I tend to gravitate towards bold lips and a neutral eye most of the time.  I don't have a lot of eye shadow and am thinking of swapping or giving away the mineral make up shadows I have as I haven't used them. If I'm going to try to be successful at Project 10 Pan, I think I should focus on one or two specific types of products I have a lot of. I immediately crossed out nail polish as I knew I would fail - I have over 200 bottles of nail polish and while I've cut way down on buying, I'm always on the look out for unique polishes (never fail to buy Lynnderella's polishes when they go on sale).  I also left out bath products and perfume: I may stock up on soaps every once in a while but go through my stash before buying again. So I thought I would go with lip gloss.

#48: Running

I did a year of cross-country running in junior high. I wasn't that great, plus I had a slight case of asthma, but I really enjoyed it. Didn't continue in high school after we moved up to the Northwest (I was rather oblivious to what went on at school - I pretty much just went to class).  Can't really say why I like running either; I do miss it which is why I'm trying to get back into it, with the goal of completing a marathon in the fall. But not just any marathon: this one has zombies in it.

#70: New Recipes

I love food. A lot of my recreational activities with friends usually has us going out and eating sometime during our outings. I think going out to eat is a great way to relax and spend time with people.

I also enjoy cooking, baking especially. I would like to expand my skills in the kitchen.  I especially want to get better at cutting things; I love looking at the knives when I go to Sur la Table (they're just so pretty!) and while I know of the proper way to cut, I need practice.

Cosplay: Sailor Moon

I'm very excited about this year's Sakura-Con. It'll be the first time in 2 years that I'll be cosplaying, I believe. And I've chosen something I love and always wanted to do: Sailor Moon!

#42: Japanese

I love anime. I would say my first anime would be Slayers Try - we had just recently moved to the Northwest from Texas, but were flipping through channels on a Friday night and caught the tail end of a Slayers Try episode (it was either the first/second episode of the show - ended up going online to check out the channel and made sure I got to watch it every Friday).

The Weekend!

I am soooo happy that I finally have a two days off of work; that hasn't happened for a few weeks and I really can't do much of anything with just one day off (as I tend to spend half of that day sleeping). I also made sure to get next weekend off to go down to celebrate SMC's Birthday! Very excited to see friends and suck down some suckables ^_^

Tomorrow I go play D&D Lair Assault. I started going to D&D Encounters in November at a local comic book store and have really enjoyed it.  But it would be nice to join an original game so I can really develop and get into my character (you only go up to level 3 in Encounters). It's still fun to play a game on a weekly basis though.

#73: Read 200 books

Of all the items on the list, this is the one that I've been the most successful at. I love to read - there's really nothing better than curling up and getting lost in a book.

Welcome 2012

Just wanted to say I hope everyone has a great start to the new year!
