Facing My Fears

One of the biggest problems I have is facing my fears.  I don’t think I’m alone when I say that, either.  It seems that often times people would rather avoid doing something, sating something, or being something, because they have a fear.  Fear of rejection, fear of failure, and in my case, fear of death via a large mechanical device flying off a track.  The idea of a roller coaster failing with me on it is TERRIFYING!

This past week, my room mates Matt and Patrick, as well as our friend Ian, decided that I needed to conquer this fear.  Let me rephrase this.  Matt and Patrick, coaster enthusiasts, decide to break Ian and I, flat footed soil bound folk, into the wonderful world of coaster at Cedar Point in Ohio.

Once in awhile I want to post a useful tool that I have stumbled across surfing the internet.  Today I’d like to share Whocalled.us.  Have you ever looked at your caller id to see an 800 number or another number you don’t recognize?  Pop the number into Whocalled.us ‘s database, and see if someone else has been called by the same party.  You can also add numbers for parties that you have found the identity of, to help others in the fight against unwanted phone calls.

Happy Hedgie #2: Clean Cage Edition

Twitter Update

I’m finishing up some side projects that have been keeping me busy, and studying for my state Real Estate Agent exam. I did want to point out one fun but ultimately useless feature that I have added to the site.

On the left sidebar, I have added a Twitter. Twitter, for those who are uninitiated, is a tool that lets you update your “status” on the fly, from the web or a SMS enabled phone. So now you can all know what my random thought of the moment is. If you get a Twitter of your own and follow me, I’ll be sure to add you back so we can all stay “in the loop”.

Classes Done!

On Tuesday I finished my real estate classes and took my in class final.  I passed with flying colors!!  Now all I need to do is take my state test, which is supposed to be easier than the in class final.  After that it’s just a matter of sending in some paperwork and waiting for the state to send me my license!

Happy Hedgie #1: Late Night Snack Edition

I try to keep my posts on here as relevant as possible but occasionally I like to post something personal. My friend Kate over at Faded Words posts pictures of her pup Merlin every Monday (Merlin Monday’s). In that spirit, I decided that I would start (trying) to post a picture of my hedgehog Eris every week or so. Pictures below the jump.
