Hello,

My name is Christopher Wienberg and I’m a Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California (USC) researching the personal experiences people write on the web about their everyday lives, and your blog came to my attention ( http://nicoletirona.blogspot.com).

I’m interested in how the thoughts and experiences written by people like you on weblogs and other social media can be used to make conclusions about society as a whole. I am contacting you because I am trying to collect reliable data about bloggers’ opinions, experiences, and characteristics in order to refine and evaluate my analyses.

If you are at least 18 years old and interested in helping me, please take the brief survey linked in this email. It should only take about 15 minutes of your time. Your responses will be kept confidential.

In the course of this study, we will also be analyzing the public posts on your weblog using natural language processing technology. The goal of this analysis is to correlate your responses to this survey with what you write about your life on your weblog.

If you want more information before you decide to participate, you can email me at cwienberg@ict.usc.edu or call me at (310) 574-5700. Additionally, you should feel free to contact my PhD advisor Dr. Andrew Gordon by email at gordon@ict.usc.edu.

omg i am so annoyed right now.. it feels fabricated though
maybe its because someone used my face towel to clean the sink?
very nice. kind. clean. wonderful. typifies the experience.
when one said ok use anything you want dont worry
and the other is like ask before anything despite things being over a year expired, grimy, all the trappings of a forgotten condiment, you know the look, a bit mossy, fuzzy, sticky
and you clean the whole thing over and over again because thats how much it needs to be cleaned before you can move in, you know? they dont know. i dont know. i dont understand. using my face towel really? i put reminders up for myself/everyone to clean the damn the areas and not give a shit if its literally someone elses shit. and the first thing they do, though bravo, commendable behaviour, #learning, but really, using my face towel, i just installed a towel ring above the sink side part and the first thing they do is use my hand towel to wipe the sink down. Um, ok, better not try to move in too quickly before they are fully trained. Might I ad the towel, with its mild wiping of grime and cleanser was gently tousled onto itself in the ring. So as not to dry it out too quickly.
swear to god this is the devils work. TABERNAC

Reopened shop and blogging once again 2016

Hey guys
Haven't been on here in ages.

But I here I am again, I even reopened my IYL etsy shop and have a few pieces listed.

Currently I am studying to be a certified Aromatherapist and plan on making skin care products like soap and lotions to add to my Its Your Life shop items.

I'm not sure how many blog posts I'll be writing. I remember trying to post one a day. That was a long time ago.

Here is my shop link, have a look through! I have clearance items for $15 each and a couple of my classic charm and locket necklaces listed.

https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/itsyourlife

might just list the pieces like these pictures and indicate which item the listing is for. thats the only way ill want to cut down on the price and make it a true clearance item.. i havent started studying today im just so interested in looking into picking up my old online business :p

these are so cute
should i make individual listing pics again?
seems like so much work and it wont be clearance anymore and also wont have time to make stuff at the same time. anyway there are a lot of pieces and i am happy to have had the foresight to load up on supplies and kept this stash of pieces before packing all this stuff away.

   
 this vintage brass heart locket with the vintage lithograph screen print images varnished on.
loved making these and they are so beautiful 100% upcycled refinished vintage supplies mixed in with new charms.
     
 these two are very pretty and charming. the large grey rose necklace features a small cameo set into a filigree setting which is then set onto the main filigree holding the rose. it has a tiny perfect bead charm dangling from below. the second necklace is jam packed with lovely charms and chain. there is a vintage butterfly shaped brass locket and a large mirror charm (which is new) it also features a short section of Czech glass bead chain in a lustrous champagne pink color. a large open clock charm adds to the feathery and decaying effect of the dangling chains and creates a charming and quaint image of time passed, akin to a preserved dried rose keepsake on the vanity.
