lovely :O) Im new to this site, but i enjoy reading all the blogs. I know how you feel about your room, im 23 and i just did a whole remodel on my room.. moved stuff around, took things down and added a few extra things to. I am happy with my results and it feels like a new place to relax. Keep the stuff you like..maybe just relocate it. If you love it..then there is a perfect spot in your room for it. I dont know what "the next iron chef" is...but it sounds like a great accomplishment for you clevelanders :o) congrats! And the whole friend situation..well friendships can be tricky. You obviously did nothing wrong. You attempted to call her, dont let the blame go to you. I THINK she knows that you care and were calling. Maybe she just needs some attention or something :o) I feel even if you are super busy a text or quick call isnt that time consuming, just to let who ever is trying to get ahold of you know that you got there messages etc.. Dont worry to much, if she is a true friend everything will work out. Take care...have a wonderful day..good luck with the remodel!
