So that snowstorm we were supposed to have, where they estimated 15 freaking inches of snow plus 3 inches of ice, yeah, we got 3 inches. The blizzard went north of St. Louis so we didn't for real get anything. That was rather disappointing.

The good news, I got three snow days because of it. Not sure why, because one would have been sufficient and now I don't get out til June 7th. So I guess that's both good news and bad news. One of my friends was joking that we'd be out of school for one day and then we'd have to go back again, haha. Normally, it wouldn't be too much of a deal, besides being annoying, but I'm leaving for my trip to France and Italy June 9th, so if we get two more snow days... what do I do? I'm praying for no more snow days!

With my abundant amount of time that I had to procrastinate homework, I've created a 101 in 1001 days. For those of you not familiar with this, it's basically just a list of 101 things that you would like to do in 1001 days. I was inspired by Juniper, and I thought it would be a good way to get the things I want to do done. Besides, there's something I love about crossing things off of lists.

I'm not quite finished with my list yet, I only have 87 things, so I'm still working on it, but I've got a good head start! I was looking at a couple other people's lists for ideas to put on my own, and I ran across this site PostCrossing. It's a really neat site, I think. You send post cards to people all over the world, and in return, you get postcards as well. Some people might think it's lame, but I think it would be really cool just to get a postcard from someone in Russia, or Germany, or Taiwan, or some place on the other side of the world from you. Am I the only one that thinks this is cool?

Needless to say I signed up and I'm itching to get sending some postcards. I need to go out and buy some first, though. Hehe, that's kinda necessary to send one. xD I think I might make a book or something of all the post cards I've received... dunno, I'll have to wait til I get some. ^^

If you'd like to suggest some things to my list, I'd be glad to hear them!

PSW is a personal support worker. They are every where, actually. They are a form of a nurse. They work wih clients in hospitals/nursing homes/ in their own homes. They help them with every day needs as they cant do them all their selves. We can do anything from taking their blood pressure to light house keeping :) I know what you mean. I hate joining contests and feel bad when people ask me. I suck at graphics so I just feel worse if i get no votes for my imagees lol. Thats why i only do voting contests, Site of the month. hopefully you get no more snow days! that would suck if you missed your trip :(. the weather really needs to get back on track. We had a storm too! it was an ice storm/winter storm combined with a freaking thunderstorm!! how wierd is that?! I agree with you. it would be so cool to get posts cards from many places around the world! I bought some when i went to Europe a few years ago :D the list sounds intersting! maybe i'll do one as well :)

That happened to me this winter with a snow prediction. I kinds laughed. My town has barely had any snow since before Christmas. When I was smaller I never thought I could wish for no snow. :D I hope you can go on your vacation on time. I like finishing and completing things too. Good luck on your list! That postcard site does sound cool! I'm gonna have to look into it. You must share the postcards you get. Like scanning them or something so we can see. Please? :)

Aw, that is disappointing. I mean, I'm the kind of person who absolutely despises snow, but I'm all for it if it gets me a day off. ;) Ooh! Good luck with your 101 in 1001 Days! I have a list... I kind of abandoned it though. xD Wow! That actually sounds really awesome! Have you heard of PostSecret? Where people write down their secrets on postcards and mail them (anonymously, of course.) It's pretty funny. :D

Aww! I wish WE had snow days. :) Then we could have snowball fights!!! Sadly, no snow here, unless we go to the mountains. -.- I really wish it snowed here! Teehee. You're praying for no more snow days, I am praying for snow days!! I WANT SNOW DAYS!!! Ooo 101 things to do in 1001 days! That's like...3 years o.o I don't think I can think of 101 things I want to do. xD Yeah, crossing off things just makes you happy. ^^ 87 things is already a lot!! Keep going. :D OH I REAL POSTCARD!!! I want one from South Africa, and England. 8DD Making a book out of all the postcards you receive is an awesome idea!!! I would definitely do it if I were you. ;D Um...learn a new instrument?? :)

the 101 list looks like a fun idea but I would have no idea what to put on it :P I tried to go on the PostCrossings site but the link isn't working? Anyway, I'd love to give that a try because it looks really interesting :D My presentation went well! Just glad it's over really :) x

Hey girlie! How's the site coming a long? Anyway, I hope you guys have no more snow days and that you get to travel to France what a lucky biatch you are! :P. Anyway, I found someone :). Heehee yup I did, I did! I texted him that I was having a panic attack and he walked me through it and calmed me down. Now I'm getting tired, so hopefully I can go to bed soon. But I wanted to see how your site was coming a long. Do you still need help? Please let me know okay?
