What I'm Reading
I just started "Clockwork Angel" by Cassandra Clare. I wasn't a big fan of the love affair of the two main characters in the "City of Bones" series. It was too over the top like Twilight, but the writing was better. The surrounding characters in "City of Bones" were way more interesting than the main characters. Magnus Bane was hands down my favorite character. I'm hoping that "Clockwork Angel"'s series is better than the "City of Bones" series, but we'll see. I do like the main female character Tessa better than Clary so I'm crossing my fingers.
What I'm Writing/Drawing
I'm an artist as well as a writer so I'm merging the two in this. It wouldn't make sense to ignore my artwork! I have a whole host of these projects I'm working on right now. These are the things I'd like to complete this week and some dates I'd like to finish them by:

What Inspires Me Right Now
I don't know what it is about Dr. Who, but I find the show very inspirational. I mean yes, there are all kinds of aliens, spacetravel and magical occurances. I think what I like the most about the show is the message. It's one show that I put in the catagory of "Must Watch".
Favorite quotes from Dr. Who
Amy Pond, there's something you better understand about me, 'cause it's important and one day your life may depend on it. I am definitely a madman with a box
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.
All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?
I wear a fez now. Fezes are cool.I think these are all quotes from the 11th doctor.
What Else I've Been Up To
Most of my time is taken up with watching my son. He is high energy and lots of trouble! He was sick for a few weeks there and been extra trouble for me. Speaking of sick... I was sick last Friday. It was not a happy time!
Working Out/Being Healthy
I'm not great at this, but I try. Cutting out most carbs and dairy. Keeping away from processed foods. I'm trying to do something to workout everyday. Yes it's hard, but I do my best! Exercising can be the worst because sometimes I don't feel well enough to do certain workouts. I have successfully lost 40 pounds since January 30th. I'm eating more than I use to and healthier. I still cheat every now and again! I am happy that I've moved from being overweight to being an average weight!
That's it for this week. I will do my best to get my blog review up tomorrow!
