Hey all! I've been busy the past few days! I worked on nl all day saturday and I got tons of stuff added. I still have a long way to go but it's getting there! :) Yayness! And on Sunday I got to talk to my hubby! It was wonderful to just hear his voice for 10 minutes. He sounded so much better than the last time I talked to him. His bronchitis had cleared up and his knees didn't hurt and hopefully the swelling in his nose is gone too lol. I just hope I have a husband in one piece when he gets done! But the important thing is he's happy and enjoying what he's working on. I just hope that the army gives him a good branch choice to work in. I know he'd love to be a pilot or work with computers or do intelligence. I guess any of those would be good. I just figure that God will give him what he will do the most good in and I'll be alright with that. I can't wait until he's done with training and we get to finally move out again. But I must have patience... 5 more months of no husband :( Atleast I get to see him for his basic graduation at the end of October. 2 days then is better than nothing at all. I'm just worried that I might not get to see him graduate at all. I don't think that we can afford the airfare to get me there and him back with me. Sigh... but I can't rent a car once I'm there which sucks big time. You have to be friggin 25 to rent a car! I'm a responsible person! So what if I'm 22. Grrr. Ok enough griping about that. I'll get the situation worked out. That was my Sunday lol... Today I went out shopping and got some pictures developed that I took for my husband. He said he was feeling deprived because I hadn't sent any good pictures of myself to him yet heh. So I'll mail those to him tomorrow. And while I was getting that done I found a kick butt scarf to go with my vintage leather jacket that was my grandfathers. I adore it. It's from the late 70's I think and it's a warm chocolate color. Normally I don't wear dead animals on my body but since it was my Papa Will's coat I make an exception. It's a little large on me but it is nicely tapered in at the waist so it doesn't look so bad. I have to roll the sleeves under but that's to be expected since I'm such a small person. Being 5'3" definetely makes it more difficult to find clothes that don't go past my feet or hands. Even petite clothing is too long on the pants sometimes lol. Ah well, what can I do... Also today I had somewhat of a breakthrough on myself. I've been struggling with my emotions a better part of my life and always wondering why I feel everything so strongly. I cry when others cry, I'm happy when others are happy, I get giddy when I start talking about things that are exciting to me or others... it's like in some way I feel what others are feeling and I'm able to understand them better for it. I guess I should be glad that I've been given this gift of empathy but sometimes I just want to shut off my emotions or atleast get a handle on them. But I think I would be unhappy then too. My whole being as a person is one of understanding and the ability to listen and help people that need it. I just need to except my emotions as a good thing and quit hiding every time I cry because I see others hurting and it hurts me too. For some reason I've always been ashamed to cry in front of others. I don't really know why. Perhaps a feeling of vulnerablity or maybe I just don't like the way I look when I cry. I just don't know. But either way I need to get over it and just accept myself for who I am, inside and out. Well this has been my self introspection look at what is Nev lol... Boy did I go on or what? ^_^ I guess I'll let you people get back to whatever it was you were doing before you stopped to read this. Until tomorrow, blessed be!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't written in a bit but I've been busy and every time I got near the computer I had to end up doing something else. But I did get the whole Charmed series (up to date) downloaded! ^_^ I'm happy about that. Now I've seen every single episode lol. I'm still working on Angel though. I've got most of the last season downloaded except for like 2 episodes. It keeps me busy when I don't have anything else better to do heh. I've also been working on making my bos. It looks pretty nifty. I used a black binder with those clear pockets on the outside to put the covers in. I'll have to take a picture of it to show you. I used thick paper and pastels to make the covers and the emblem on the front. It was all very fun and makes me feel like I'm contributing more to my studies than just buying one premade or using a spiral notebook. To see a picture of it look here. I guess I just decided to have an artistic burst yesterday and that was all I worked on. I have some things inside too but those are for me. ^_- Can't let all my secrets and knowledge get out. I tell enough on this blog as it is lol. Well I must get back to updating my other site so I can open it. Ta ta for now!

Hiya all! Just taking a break from adding content to Nev's Life. I've got the whole layout up but I still need to link the pages and add all the goodies in. I feel like I've been working on it all day... well actually I have lol. Since about 3pm anyway. Hopefully by monday I'll have it linked in for your viewing pleasure ^_^. All the content may not be in, but I'm still working on that anyway. My brain is lacking in ideas for designs atm so I need a good sleep and then I can plug away at making new things. I know alot of people will be dissapointed that I'm not going to make guild designs anymore but I really just don't have the time to make them. Instead I'll have web designs and wallpapers, and all the other stuff like user lookups and shop layouts. I'm trying to think of what else I could add as far as design categories go... got any ideas? Leave me a tag message if you do. Well sorry this is so short but I'm really tired and I need to refresh my brain for some more work tomorrow. I so need a refresh button on me somewhere... just punch the button and you feel like you've had 8 hours of sleep. Hehe ^_^ Goodnight!

Hello all you happy shiny people ^_^ As you can see I have a lovely new Tagboard! Leave me lots of messages ok? Ok. Well today has been really loud. They were putting in a new door to the back porch because my Mom didn't like the flow pattern of the room. So all I heard all day was bang bang crash saw tear boom... etc. I'm just glad that I didn't get a headache from it. Plus there was another guy here changing out some ceramic tiles in the laundry room. So it's been chaos around here. Mom and I just closed ourselves up in the office and played cards ^_^. One way to make the time pass quickly. I'll be glad when the kitchen gets all fixed up so I can work on my candles and soap again. I think the next batch will be milk and honey soap and maybe something else. What other type of soap should I make? If you have any favorites just leave me a tag message. I guess that's where all my little questions can be answered at now. As most of you know, my other site is a design site. I'm in the process of getting it all fixed up and I just need to add in the content and it will be done. I'm thinking of adding another tag board to Nev's Life right now to get some ideas for designs from people. I want to have a really wide variety of things to pick from so all different kinds of people want to use them. I guess I'll really crack down and finish the main parts of the site tonight and start in on the content tomorrow. Then atleast people can see that I've been doing something for these past several weeks. But right now I'm going to eat because my stomach is calling. So until later...

I've been asked why I haven't been working on my site Nev's Life for the past few months. In the short of it, my husband has gotten the opportunity to be an officer for the Army. It's going to mean some huge changes in our life and I've been using the past few months to get ready for it and just take some time to be with him. Right now he's in basic and I miss him terribly but it's given me an opportunity to work on my sites again. I need to work on them because it keeps me busy ^_^. And there will be times while we're moving around that I don't get to work on it but it should be pretty far between. I have another 5 months of not seeing him so hopefully I can grow Nev's Life into a really great site. And I want to thank everyone for their support. Raine, Myles, Milo and all my other friends you've been great! And everyone who uses my designs I thank too for liking my work and spreading it around. Thanks guys!! ^_^

*Yawn* It is 4:09am here and I've pretty much pulled an all nighter... shows me for taking medicine for my headache. It's kept me awake all night. But since I didn't want to waste all that time I've been watching some episodes of Charmed that I downloaded. Gotta love those programs. Especially since they haven't released any seasons of it to dvd yet. I'd probably buy them if they did. But no, they are still in mass syndication on TNT so they won't do that. Sigh. But enough of my rant. I guess I can't have everything that I want when I want it. I got spoiled with the Buffy dvds. I just got to watch the whole series. Ah well, I'll just be patient and wait for all the downloads. So what shall I talk about... hmm. Ah yes, earlier well yesterday I guess it was, I transplanted all my lovely basil seedlings into a bigger pot. Hopefully they will do well and get nice and big. I left all the parsley in the old pot so maybe they will have enough room to grow now. I think I'm going to order some more seeds soon. I want a nice variety of herbs to cultivate. Boy am I boring or what? Some people talk about what concert they went to or what shopping extravaganza they got to do. But me, I talk about plants and life and religion and well the earth in general. I guess I'm very in tune with my dirt. Those other things just aren't that important to me. Sure I'd love to buy out the mall or see some band but it's just not the same without someone else to share it with. Being all alone for a while has just made me return even further to my first loves. The earth, the night sky and the beauty that is life. I guess I just got a new perspective on things and I see that I don't need to be out in main stream life to be out in life. I'm happy in my yard or in my room or in my circle. Or at wally world lol. I'm just the proverbial stick in the mud I suppose. And I'm darn happy to be there. ^_^ Well goodnight all. I shall write more when I get up and find my question of the day. Until then
Nev
My question of the day is if you were a plant, what type would you be? I know, small question but I figure maybe I'll get an answer this way hehe. Email me here. I also added some new stuff on the about me page. A new fact and a picture of myself *everyone runs away* ^_^

Hello everyone! How is everyone doing on this nice Sunday? I personally feel better (thankfully) but I still have a cottonball stuck in my ear lol. Hopefully that will quit hurting soon. Ah the wonder of garlic hehe ^_^. Natural remedies are much nicer on your body than all the medicines doctors try to push on you. I'm so sensitive to medication that I take one pill and I zonk out for 12 hours. That's another reason I'm persuing homeopathic medicine. Of course some things will have to me taken care of with pills and whatnot but my goal is to use everything in nature to prevent me having to go to the doctor to begin with. Like my allergies, I know they could be vastly improved using herbs early in the season and continuing through the year. That way I won't have any problems at all. Same with colds and the flu. I just need to get with it and take things the right way. And some day I'll grow all my own herbs that I need. Right now I just can't grow that much because we're going to be moving all over the place for the next 6 years in the military. But once we settle down a bit and have longer places of residency I'll grow a full garden, herb and otherwise. I'm just so looking forward to being back out on our own after this 6 months of being by myself and living with my parents. And before that we had to stay with my husbands parents because we both lost our jobs within a few months of each other. (long story) Lets just say that I don't care where we move, as long as we have our own house/duplex/apartment... whatever. There are so many things that I want like the freedom to decorate walls and wander about in my undies if I feel like it ^_-* And practice my religion without any persecution and misunderstanding. (another long story) So I'm a christian wiccan? So what? I'm not in league with the devil and I don't worship plants and I don't cast "evil" spells... sigh I could rant all day long on the way people persieve wicca. I just love God and all of the creation that is our universe. It's that simple. Anyway, there I go on the religion rant. It always ends back on that subject lately. I guess it's because I don't have anyone to really discuss it with that's wiccan too. I'm in the middle of Alabama and trust me, it's very backwoods. The thought of a eclectic bookstore or herb shop around here is taboo. Much less a meeting of like minded people. Ok my question of the day to you is this: Have you ever been persecuted for what you believe in? No matter what religion or philisophical belief. Let me know here. I guess that's my mind for today. Send me some great emails! I love hearing what you think. Until then
Nev
Another bit of info that I found... There is going to be a new Peter Pan movie comming out in December of this year. Go here to see a preview on the Quicktime website. I think it looks pretty awesome! But then again I always loved Peter Pan when I was growing up ^_^

Hi guys! Sorry for not writing yesterday but I got sidetracked with updating some pages on here and just forgot to make an entry (silly me). Today I'm kinda under the weather :( I've got an earache and it sucks. I've been asleep all morning after I put some garlic oil in it. Hopefully that will help. Of course now all I taste is garlic lol. But it could be worse... it could be onion or something heh. I'm thinking that it isn't an infection just my allergies making it hurt. *hopes* But enough about my physical state... yesterday was a pretty boring day as days come. All I did was sit around watching tv and did a few updates last night for this site. I should be way more motivated but I guess yesterday wasn't a motivating day. Hopefully tomorrow will be since this day is practically shot. I know I always feel better on sundays. Well since I am just a bag full of fun (not) I think I will leave you all for now. Maybe later this evening I'll feel better and come up with some more interresting things to talk about. Until then

Hello there! How is everyone on this bright shiny thursday? I'm sure you are all glad tomorrow is Friday eh? Well for me it doesn't really matter one way or the other. Pretty much every day is the same old same old. Well except for sundays. They always seem different and special. I use that time for deep meditation and being at one with my surroundings and God. It's starting to get cooler outside now, well out of the 90's every day in any case and maybe I can be outside more without getting bit by the swarms of mosquitos... It's a good hope anyway ^_^ I've just started my herbs for the fall and winter seasons. I've got my basil and parsley growing well and I think that I'm going to get about 4 others to go along with them. I love to see the little plants pop out of the soil. It's neat to see that miracle that is life. I'd be one of those people that could sit and watch things grow. Maybe not the grass but other plants and things are fun to watch. I wish I could have an all out greenhouse but I'm going to be moving so much in the next few years that it would be a hinderance. I'll just have to stick with small trays of plants for now. Did you all see the lovely full moon last night? It was beautiful here. I love to be outside under a full moon and just feel the difference that it makes in the air. It's so hard to explain but it makes everything in the night just sparkle with a bit of magick from heaven that isn't there under a moonless sky. You probably think me silly for thinking that but I've always held a special place in me for the night sky and all the beauty of nature. I think that's why I study plants and all life that grows on earth. It is all so special and filled with a wonder that I can't explain away as nothing. How is it that people can say that it just poofed into existence with no helping means at all. This world and universe had to be created by someone powerful. I also believe that not just one religion has the right idea of God. As long as you acknowledge that there is a supreme being (God) and you worship them the way you feel morally obligated to following all the rules that are common sense (or should be anyway) you're on the right track. Just follow the right path to God and live your life the way you should you'll be in heaven. It doesn't matter what you call God, just as long as you do call on him/her and respect them and put them before anyone or anything else. Ok ok that's my religion rant today... what are your views on the subject as a whole and do you like being called one thing or another and put into a "category"? Let me know here. I'll put a page of responces for people to look at. Let me know in the message if you don't want it to be posted on this site. I'll call it the daily reply. Well I think that's all I have to say for the moment... I'll see you guys later!

Yes finally I've started my blog! Yay! It has taken me a while to get settled in here and get my dsl service. I got my stuff for it last week but I've been having all kinds of issues to work out. I finally got it straight. It ended up being a conflict with my zone alarm... stupid program. But all is right in my computer world now thankfully. ^_^ As long as my hard drive doesn't crap out again... *crosses all fingers and toes for luck* I'll be replacing it in a few months but I don't really have the money to now. Well lets see... I bet you'd like to know more about me hm? Well atleast that's what I figure since you're actually bothering to read this. My name is Nevtaliel (Nev for short) and yes thats a nickname. My real name is boring so I won't trouble you with it. I'm a 22 year old computer nerd/free spirit/tree hugger/artist... I could go on but that's enough for now. I'm not in college atm but I'm hoping to go back soon and finish a degree in Botany/Biology with a minor in computer design. I know, odd combination but I want to follow all my interests and I'm not getting this degree to be employable so much as learn new things. Right now I'm working on making my new line of bath and candle products called "Simply Nature". I have a few people that are being my testers to make sure they are safe for all. Maybe I'll start selling them, who knows. Right now it's more experimental than anything. What type of soaps do you enjoy? Send me a few of your thoughts here . Who knows, maybe I'll make samples for you... Anyway I'll tell more about myself and what's going on in my life tomorrow. Until then!
