Julie Jackson

I just realized...

...that tomorrow is September 1st - which means I have roughly two weeks to study for my CIW web exam (which is scheduled for the 18th) Ooops! :P I'd totally forgotten about it and hadn't even picked up the book since it arrived from Amazon.Com several weeks ago :P. I have this really bad feeling I won't be ready in time. :(

On a theatre note, Julie Jackson's new show (who, BTW, is in my new icon above) :) is opening in a week at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. :) It's her debut after being on maternity and family leave for almost a year and a half. I'm so excited for her! :) I can't wait to see her in Pasadena in October - it's been far too long since I've seen her on stage.

Which reminds me - her site is badly in need of a re-design... It was one of the first sites that I created and I haven't re-designed it since. :( It also shows my inexperience when it comes to site building - two and a half years ago - though I really shouldn't talk because I haven't gotten much better since then. :( I'm such a bad fan site builder to have neglected re-designs on her site (and Misty's) for so long. :(

In other news, our diet/exercise plan is still going strong. :) Though I have NO IDEA how we're going to be able to maintain our healthy lifestyle on vacation. :P I'd already given up on the idea that we're going to eat healthy the WHOLE vacation (after all - how can you go to California and NOT eat an In-N-Out Burger???) but I'll be gone much longer than I expected with the business portion of the trip. With no exercise and all that eating, I'll be back to my pre-diet weight in no time! :( Too bad the hotel I'll be staying at doesn't have a DVD player - that would solve at least a portion of my problems. :(

And speaking of exercising, I feel oddly re-freshed today after working out. Some days are awful and I just don't feel like expending the energy and I'll admit when I do work out on those days, I'll only go through it half heartedly. :P How bad of me! :( Today started off as one of those days, but amazingly halfway through I got an odd burst of energy. Now I feel great and ready to take on the rest of the week, my hyper BIG boss, and the CIW exam. ;)

I'd better go and look for my CIW book (and start cramming for the exam!) :P Hope you all have a nice evening. :)
