I was raised on 2% and consumed an ungodly amount of it -- our family of four would go through four gallons a week. Then when I was sixteen I was in a car accident that snapped my femur in half like a twig. So much for all that calcium!

Now when I do buy milk I get skim...and that's mostly for putting on my Cinnamon Toast Crunch. :)

I don't currently display my diplomas but I have in the past. My undergraduate one barely survived a fire at my parents' house. I toyed with getting it replaced but ended up framing it as is -- bunt edges, watermarks and all. It makes for an interesting conversation piece!

I used Autodesk Homestyler and I was rather pleased with it, even though I couldn't get exact measurements for some of my more oddly-shaped pieces of furniture. (But I didn't play around with it much so some of that may have been user error!)

Now I'm trying to decide how awful it would be to put the desk (and accompanying desk chair) over the only vent in the room. Part of me thinks there would be enough air flow...but part of me thinks (and knows) that Chicago winters can really suck.

Since I just signed my lease for another year I decided it's high time to tackle my neglected bedroom. The room has some challenges (including a love/hate relationship with the ceiling fan) but I'm looking forward to making some changes, not matter how small. Cheers, everyone!
