I am putting forward a few options for my November 2014 project goals:
1) Upcycle one of my cardigans by putting lace pockets on it
2) Make my Xmas dress with the pattern I bought this month
3) Upcycle a men's dress shirt into a women's tunic
4) Create Xmas presents for friends & family
I will post more pics of the banners and wedding costumes as I get them and I will post pictures of my finished monthly projects as I finish them!

My next step after the tank is ready to to buy more beautiful fishies! :) I have 2 already and I'm going to get at least 4 more. Then I'll quarantine them for a month (probably with this method: http://www.femalebettafish.net/how-to-quarantine-betta-fish/ ) then they will be ready to be together, starting with the least aggressive.
I have read a lot about starting a Betta sorority but if anyone has any helpful tips or resources about starting Betta tanks or cycling fish tanks I would appreciate the input!
I'll also be updating as the process continues :)
October 2014 Update: I was unable to get a Betta sorority started. Turns out that's a lot of hard work and i have trouble enough keeping one Betta alive, much less a whole school of them.This isn't really a goal for me anymore at this point. I would rather spend my time on creating things than having another responsibility of something else to take care of.

1)Circle of Death (House Rules)
Red) to the head (you drink)
Black) deal out (can split up the card among people)
8) pick a date (someone to drink whenever you drink)
9) It's rhyme time, bitches!
10) Rule master (all rules stack)
J) Thumb master
Q) Question master
(I'm also considering for house rules 4's - whores and 6 - dicks. lol)
And if you break the circle you have to drink the beer in the middle.
A simple yet amazing game. Example: "SteveDrink." (yes one word lol) Then Steve drinks obediently. No questions asked, just blind obedience. That's how it goes.
This actually has yet to be played, as it was just recently created by my bestie, but I'm sure it will warm its way into our hearts and become a new favorite. So when you're drunk and slurring your words as soon as you notice the specific incident you yell "COHERENT!" and the entire room drinks and you are safe from taking a drink. However! If someone catches your slurring before you do they yell COHERENT! and exaggeratedly point at you and you must drink, thus probably making your slurring and your attention to your slurring worse.
Everyone stands in a circle with their lips covering their teeth. If you show your teeth throughout the game you must drink (i.e. no smiling or laughing). Here's the hard part: you go around the circle yelling PTERODACTYL! at each other, then when you want the direction of the circle to change (or want to make your friends drink) you make a sound that you think a pterodactyl might make (Note: It really doesn't matter what the sound is lol).
5) Beer Pong
No explanation needed (for most). We have a few house rules but they change sometimes
6) Never Have I Ever
A classic. Those who have, drink.
I for the life of me cannot remember how to play this game, but I remember the last time that I played it I had a hell of a time. I also know that I went from Asshole to President in one round which was awesome... for some reason lol
8) Simon Says
You drink when you do something Simon didn't say. This gets really fun when you have three step directions like "Simon says touch your right elbow after you touch your nose but before you touch your left knee."
Possible 9) Buffalo Club
No drinking your drink from your right hand (can add the limits of before or after midnight)
I have yet to try out this game as well.
LET'S HAVE A PARTY!
What are some of your favorite drinking games?

But this is my life now I suppose. Sometimes it's just hard to find joy and beauty in all the things that one has to do. I've found that changes of scenery can sometimes help. They can also be distracting though! All that being said, I did have a good night with some friends from school eating sushi! And you know what? I wasn't worried.

I had a dream last night that I was playing hide and go seek with some little blonde kid and he was always it. Amanda and Rachel were there too playing hide and seek and Rachel hid in a wall lol. Then my alarm went off but I didn't feel like stopping so I turned my alarm off and kept playing haha.
I had a dream the other night that I was hanging out with people and we decided to go swimming so we were in this really crowded pool and I noticed I wasn't wearing anything and I was like "Oh shit...I'm naked..." lol and I had so much trouble getting my clothes back on but no one else seemed to notice/care that I was inappropriately in my birthday suit.
Then I had a dream that I was in a shipwreck.

What You'll Need to Make a Female Admiral’s Uniform
-McCall’s M4745 (Men’s Civil War Costume – use coat B)
-McCall’s M5860 (The Perfect Jean Jacket – used as a reference to make princess seams)
-Vogue V8479 (Women’s dress pants)
-Navy Blue Lining (I bought 4 yards to line the jacket)
-Fusible Interfacing (I bought ¼ yard)
-Silver Vinyl (I bought ¼ yard of shiny silver vinyl to make the piping – vinyl is used to make the piping of senior officers’ uniforms, not junior officers’ uniforms. Flat silver (gray) vinyl would also work nicely as long as it has some sheen)
-Gold Vinyl (I bought ¼ yard – see notes above for silver vinyl)
-Navy Ultrasuede (I bought ¼ yard, used for shoulder patches)
-1 Navy 4-in Zipper for the pants (not a “sports” zipper)
-Snap Buttons (it’s easiest if you buy a package with the application tool
-Hook and Eye
-Rat Tail Cording (about 5 yards, used for piping)
-Various Sewing Machine Needles
-Tomato Pin Cushion
-Sewing Shears (or plain scissors)
-‘Bodkin’ with Hook (see picture, used for turning tubes, don’t sweat it if you don’t have one – a safety pin will do the trick as well)
-Battlestar Patch (I bought mine from scifigeeks.com)
-8 Uniform Buttons (I got mine on eBay)
-2 Admirals’ Pins (eBay)
-Senior Flight Wings (eBay)
-Dog Tags (you can buy personalized dog tags at quantummechanix.com, but I am lucky enough to have an engraver for a brother so mine will be made by him)
-Law Pro Boots (I plan to buy mine at qmuniforms.com)
-1 ½ inch Navy Webbing Belt with Black Slide Release Buckle (I got mine at strapworks.com) (or you could make your own out of navy webbing and a slide release buckle)
- (2) ½ inch Black Plastic Slide Release Buckles (for cuffs)
