Going once, going twice...

On Wednesday, March 14th I will start my online auction process! This auction is for costuming goodies and some other random fanciness with which I can barely stand to part. Blood, sweat, and a lot of tears went into letting these items go, and believe me, if I had a storage space big enough everything would stay in my possession.

Let me make this clear, these are all things straight out of my closet and my everyday use. I love these items. I use these items. When you purchase these items 100% of the profit funds this epic journey.

Rules of the Auction:

1. I will be releasing seven items at a time for your bidding pleasure.

2. The bidding for each round of items will be one week long. Ex.: Bidding will start on Wednesday, March 14th and end Wednesday, March 21st at midnight, San Francisco time (Pacific Standard Time).

3. The bidding happens in the comment area under the item photo and description. The last person to leave a comment with the highest bid by midnight San Francisco time on the closing date is the winner of the item.

4. Winners will pay for the shipping of the item. International family, I encourage you to bid! But please be prepared to add that additional shipping charge.

5. All payments will be made via Paypal in US dollars.

6. Bidding will be done in increments of $10 (Ex. beginning price is $40, next bid must be $50, the following bid will be $60) unless otherwise noted on the item description.

7. I think that's it....

So, get ready for the first seven items coming your way on March 14th. Please leave any questions in the comment area of this blog post. If you have any questions ask! If you have a question someone else will too!


March 1st 2012

I went to bed last night frantically working on my 'to do' list. It is never ending and the trip is getting closer and closer, and there is still having an actual life with all of its natural ups and downs that I have to deal with.

I wasn't panicked when I woke, but I think I'm doing a good job at spinning myself in that direction, and this is pre-caffeine!

I know that many of you out there will say what many of you here say, "oh don't worry you get what you get done when you get it done" or "let the trip be what it will you don't have to have it all done right now" but honestly that's not how I'm rolling at the moment. You see I'm a girl that likes to get shit done and I'm serious about my getting shit done skills. In fact on my 'to do' was to write a blog, so here it is.

I'm freaking out people.

Why do I have 3 part time jobs?
Why is it raining here in SF and I have to go work in it?
Why do I have a house and a cat that need to be cared for?
Why do I have friends that need attention?
Why do I want downtime?
Why can't everyone else simply come through with promises?
Why do i have 35235634654754 things to do and no idea where to start?
Why do I need sleep?

These are all very important yet rhetorical questions.

I think what I really need to do is get an assistant, my ad will go something like this:

Personal assistant needed, the hours are long, the tasks somewhat ambiguous, there is no pay and I may or may not treat you well depending on my level of stress. No need to inquire about an interview, just show up ASAP.

Any takers?
