After not posting for very long periods of time, I'm going to attempt NaBloPoMo again! For those that don't know, this is basically a challenge to post every single day of the month, starting from Jan. 1st.
NaBloPoMo January 2012
January's topic is: Beginnings. Here's what the blogher website says about this topic:
January 1st is a blank slate, and you can make the year anything you want it to be? Leave your job and embark on a new career. Open that blank document and start that novel you always wanted to write. Join that online dating site, signup for a new class, or close your eyes and point to a place on a globe to plan your next vacation.
Beginnings can be scary, but as the adage by Lao-tzu goes, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." You can take a single step, right? And after that, it's just putting foot before foot, taking your new journey slowly and letting it unfold at its own pace.

It's not necessary to stay on topic, so we'll see what direction this goes. Last time I tried NaBloPoMo the topic was Beautiful and I didn't quite finish :( hopefully I can post something daily this time!

If you wanna sign up for NaBloPoMo, you have until Jan. 5th! Sign up here.

See you on New Years Day! :)


ps. The url of this blog will stay lavendarclouds throughout this month...I'll see about changing the URL one day :)

Life in Pictures :)

Since the blogger app refuses to let me properly arrange pictures with text, I'll just use a numbering system! Yay!

1) Pink Tornado? :) Actually, it's a tritation lab we did in Chemistry. We used a magnetic stirrer (how cool is that? A little magnetic cylinder thing just turns and turns!). For those who took chemistry way too long ago, tritations are when the molarity of one liquid is equal to the molarity of the other. A...something I forget what it's. called (winter break!) changes the color of the solution when the solution reaches the equivalence point pH. So, this was originally clear, and turned pink! Yes...that's amazing. Maybe it's the science/math genes in my family.

2) new iPod case says: "manufactured in a facility that also produces smiles." I can't decide if that's cheesy or cute...haha

3) Newspaper staff secret Santa! For favorite candy day my secret Santa got me Ferrero Rocher, Dove, and Swedish fish. Needless to say, I was very happy.

4) That says Haley, or at least it symbolizes Haley :p A friend & I made a club called "South Asia Club" at our school, & in the past meeting one of the activities was writing your name in Urdu. My Urdu isn't that good, but shhh! Don't tell anyone! :) everyone was happy, so it's cool (the other activity was Ludu, and food, awesome right?)

5) Arthur! Winter break means free time and doing fun stuff like watching childhood cartoons! Arthur is an awesome cartoon, just saying.

6) Chai! That's called a heavily edited picture...but I was sick for a long time & hot, freshly made Chai is an awesome cure! I fail at making chai normally...I think my mom made this one :)

That's it! Enough update after such a long time? :)


Shopping Spree! :) (not really...)

(Considering my awesome iPod has a camera now, I should really post more...)
I went shopping today! :) I guess I shouldn't feel too bad about spending a bunch since my birthday is soon...right?

Purse is from JCPenny -- $40 originally, and ~$34 with a 15% off coupon (every receipt from Penny's has a survey code, take the survey & print out the coupon! Yay!) I normally don't spend so much so quickly, but my sister said it suited my personality. (my sis makes an appearance on this blog a lot, didn't she? :)

I bought a bracelet & ring from Charlotte Russe recently (not today) on a 2 for $10 deal :) the ring may be overdoing it (humongous!) but goes with the personality, right? Haha

I may just do a "life in pictures" blog post following this...if I can figure out how to get the Blogger app to post my pictures accordingly! :)
