For once I have a lot planned for the weekend! Tonight is Confirmation. Then my mom and I are driving down to where the Retreat i I’m going on tomorrow is being held (about 2 hours away). Since the event she had planned for Sunday fell through we decided to make a weekend out of it and got a hotel room for Saturday night and Sunday night as well since I’m off on Mondays. AKA she feels bad for me that I don’t get to go away this summer since I just started a job and can’t take off. #CatholicGuilt FTW
I’m really looking forward to the retreat and meeting Jackie Francois since I’ve heard such awesome things about her. I’m also looking forward to hanging out with other Catholic Young Adults. I love that they have “small group time” on the retreat schedule. So many times people host conferences/retreats with awesome speakers and you never meet other people because it’s all big group stuff.
One of the things on my 30 Before 30 list was to send 5 PostCrossing postcards. I have seen Jen tweet about sending them and have been really intrigued. I finally created an account and it’s really cool. The first person I get to send a card to is from Russia! Now I just need to go to downtown and buy postcards and stamps. I think this is an appropriate time to buy the new Florida stamp that just came out!
Speaking of my 30 Before 30 I have several of them in progress. I like having this little list of goals I can be working on. Makes me feel somewhat accomplished. Last year I had started a 101 things to do in 1001 days but it was WAY too hard to come up with 101 things I wanted to do. 30 was much more doable. Maybe I’ll work up to 101.
Next Thursday is the Series Finale of The Office. I’m just going to put this out there. I know I’m gonna cry. I’ve watched the show from practically the beginning. My college roommate/church friends got me into it and I’ve loved it ever sense. After I graduated and got an office job the show started making 10x more sense and I loved it even more. At least I can get nostalgic and watch old seasons on Netflix 🙂

Twitter Parties and chats are going to get very interesting in the next few weeks. Tweethat officially doesn’t work and I tried to use Tweetgrid earlier and it wasn’t working 🙁 Those are two great tools that really help in managing twitter parties. I haven’t heard if there are any other tools coming out that will help with twitter chats and actually WORK with twitter. I guess in the coming weeks we’ll find out.

Sometimes I never realized how much of a file horder I am. With huge hard drives and multiple computers sometimes I forget to clean out computer files. Well I was forced to do this as I got an alert that my dropbox was COMPLETELY FULL! It had a big X and stuff wasn’t syncing. So I had to clean it out, and delete stuff. Half the stuff in the file I had two and 3 copies of! Crazy! So I went through all the files and now it’s only 50% full. A main issue was I had a ton of photos in it that I moved to my hard drive and eventually will move to my portable HD. Yes I know I have such an exciting life. Maybe next week I’ll work on my email inboxes. Talk about a mess.
Have a great weekend! For more Quick Takes, visit Conversion Diary!
