PF Link Love: Fave Reads of the Week and Life Updates

Today is Sunday but it feels like a Saturday since I have no work tomorrow!! Yessss... I think I am in love with this day.

Anyway, this week was another great week in PF blog land, and as Jordann mentioned on Twitter, there's just so many great posts and so little time. Thanks everyone for linking up some of my recent posts lately! I've been finding a lot of great posts through Twitter and new blogs, it's so hard to keep up. Twitter is awesome in a sense that you can learn more about people and interact with them much more quickly than just blogging/commenting. It definitely feeds my instant gratification addiction. Anyone else addicted to Twitter?

Where I've been this week:
Life Updates

This past week, I also received a 60% scholarship to the last law school I was waiting to hear back on. I'm still in the middle of figuring out what to do, but I'll share a separate post on this topic... it's way too long! Thanks everyone for helping me out so far and listening to this whole saga. It's crazy how many decisions I've had to make just within these past 3 months!

We also did not get the condo we put an offer on. Remember how we offered $180k and list price was $167k? Obviously we were beaten out by cash, again! The universe is telling us it's not meant to be. At this point, I've gone through a lot of disappointments this year but I'm learning that it's because the timing is just not right. I'll accept that. For now we (errr, just BF since I'm quitting soon) will continue to keep saving for a down payment and I'll just focus on school.

I went to visit my dad and stepmom yesterday and had prime rib and jumbo shrimp! My dad and I were talking and I learned something new about my family history. My last name starts with an I, but apparently my grandpa changed our last name from starting with a Y to an I because he was tired of being the last person to get his paycheck. Apparently they got their paychecks in alphabetical order. I can't believe I just found this out. So cool right?

The first question you want to ask yourself is why you want
to get a tattoo. The most important thing you must consider prior to
getting yourself inked along with any kind of back
skin image, is to seek the help of the expert skin image
artist. Some of you also have been wondering when is it better to acquire a tattoo.
