All you have to do is put your hair in a ponytail but shimmy the ponytail holder down a bit and use your hands to make a hole in the middle of the ponytail. Then stick the ends of the ponytail through the hole you've made and there's your twist! It is super easy!

Anyway, after standing for about 2 hours listening to opening acts and just plain waiting, my friend and I were already ready to leave before he even came out. We both worked and stood at work for countless hours so all I wanted was a seat for my tired feet and back! But once he came out, it was great. It is strange how music can bring back so many memories. "Again I Go Unnoticed" perfectly describes a past relationship. And other songs I just remember listening to and thinking about things. All in all, great concert and I was glad to share it with my friend/co-worker!
P.S. Merry Christmas Eve and Happy 2 1/2 year anniversary to my boy! :)

Saturday was my graduation! It was a long, long day but a great one. First I went to my ceremony, which let's be honest....those aren't the most exciting things in the world. Especially when I was in the last row to go across the stage! But I felt really relieved when it was over because then it was time to party!
We had lots of good food, good friends and family! I was floating from room to room trying to talk to everyone and I was really glad that everyone showed up. And one pro to graduation in December...it is like an early Christmas! ;) I'm definitely blessed this year.
Then yesterday was a complete blizzard! I kept wishing the snow would stop and it didn't, so I stayed inside and wrote thank you cards.

Hello friends! I'm off to graduate today with a Bachelor's in Journalism! Then celebrating tonight. I am so excited!
I am also grateful and excited to announce I have a job starting in January for a public relations/marketing company. It starts part-time, so I am hoping to spend some of my free time growing this blog and making it even better. :)
If you have any suggestions on topics, design, anything...feel free to email me at lrstewar (@) gmail.com.

"60 Minutes" also interviewed the infamous Winklevoss twins who sued Zuckerberg for reportedly stealing their idea. Funniest part of that: The Winkesvoss' admitted they have Facebook accounts!
Anyways, how do you like the new design? Personally, I like it. It shares your photos more effectively and I like the top part that gives snippets of where you work, live and your relationships. You can also show people who your family is and more of who you are and what you like to do. My only complaint is that I wish they would increase the font size again. People out there with bad eyesight like me have a hard time reading such small words!

Check out Zamzar.com, a free online file converter website where you can download songs from Youtube right to iTunes!
At first I thought it was too good to be true, but then I tried it when I had to download some music for a PowerPoint for my internship and I didn't want to purchase the songs. All you have to do is find the song on Youtube and copy the URL, tell Zamzar what file you want it in, put in your email address and convert. You'll get a link to download in your inbox and it can go right to iTunes, ready to listen.

I pretty much have a love/hate relationship with snow.
I love how beautiful it looks, but I am terrified driving in it and hate going out in the freezing cold.
But this year (and I'll probably regret saying this when it comes, but oh well), I am kind of excited for snow and definitely the Christmas season! In the spirit of being positive, here's a list of things I love about this time of year.
1. I love the pretty snow, sitting inside and watching it fall. My boy looooves snow and I love seeing how excited he gets.
2. Another great thing about snow is sledding and I can't wait to go this year!
3. My downtown area does a great light show and I'm excited to walk around and see all the beautiful lights.
4. Presents of course! Getting them is awesome and giving is a sweet feeling. :) I'm excited I'm almost done shopping and I've wrapped what I bought already.
5. Hot chocolate is my obsession during the cold months! Try putting a candy cane in there (it's delicious!)...
6. Having many excuses to stay inside and watch movies and cuddle with my boy.
7. Listening to Christmas music...I just downloaded the Glee Christmas CD and it is awesome.
8. Everyone is feeling happy and excited for Christmas around this time of year!
9. This year is special because I'll be done with school before Christmas and won't have to worry about going back after break.
10. Last but not least, I watched one of my favorite Christmas movies the other night..."Elf!"
