[ mini – 1.30.11 ]

So I did end up cutting my bangs back straight. I had a little bit of an issue though. I was cutting them and I sneezed and ended up slicing my nose open. This is why they look a bit wonky. After I sliced my nose open I was much too freaked out to finishing cutting them, thankfully I was most of the way done and am only missing a small amount of cutting on the right side of my face and some cleaning up in the middle. The fact that I was using a razor also resulted in them being a bit shorter than I would have liked, but I don’t think the shortness ended up being a bad thing! Just a new take on my regular old straight bangs. What I’ve taken out of this is… I need to invest in sheers and while I’ve layered my hair with a razor before, I will never attempt to do bangs with one again, ever, I just feel lucky I didn’t really do some damage to my nose or need stitches or have to go to the hospital.
Pardon how exhausted and tired I look in that photo. I hadn’t had a proper more than a few hours of rest or sleep in like 15 days at that point, and it’s definitely showing on my face here.
It was really nice to finally have a proper day off today. I normally plan it so I have either Saturday or Sunday off and Monday as a homework day (as well as the day I do my CollegeFashionista article). Today was spent sleeping in, walking Pickles (one of several nicknames Rupert will answer to), cleaning up my living room, and watching Inception.
I wasn’t very impressed with Inception but I wouldn’t complain about watching it again. I just have a very neutral opinion on it. I didn’t watch it by choice though, and that could have effected it. I had to watch it and then write up answers for 4 questions in response to it for my Film Philosophy class.
I also finally cleaned up a bit, I haven’t had the energy or the time to really properly clean my apartment since I started school since I’ve been so busy (not to mention dizzy). It’s so nice to have the pile of coats and sweaters off of my kitchen table and properly hung back up in the living room again. I also finally cleaned my bathroom, the floors were in dire need of scrubbing, so much that I assure you I don’t mind using up precious time of my only real day off in much too long to do so. Tomorrow I’m hoping to finish cleaning up once I finish my article and my homework. Tomorrow also means back to being busy! I have a load of homework I probably should have started on today (at least I did my Film Philosophy stuff!) but I know I’ll have time tomorrow and I felt I had deserved the relaxation much too much.
On top of Intro to PR and French homework I have to go to the Study Abroad department again because I’m still having issues with it not saving or submitting a lot of my information! I’m completely done with my application but I can’t submit it because nothing is saving! Very frustrating I assure you. At least it’s a distraction from figuring out where the hell I’m going to get $7,600 from.
Working at SPACE can be a little frustrating, but I know that’s just because I’m in a constant battle of needing to work on being more patient with people. I explained something 3 times to another intern and they still did it wrong (and they just kept standing around… doing nothing instead of ya know, taking a little initiative?) but that’s part of working in any industry, really it’s just part of being an adult and I really need to work on it. I need to be more patient or I know it’s not going to do me any good in the future when I actually am getting paid to work and need to keep a job for more than 3-6 months.
I have inserted the photo of vodka here just because it fit no where else and I thought it would be a little funny to insert it when talking about being a responsible adult, you know totally breaking down those typical college kid barriers, which I definitely feel like I do. I don’t serial date, I’m not out getting schwasted and fucking around on school and taking my drinking more seriously than my homework. I know way too many people who haven’t lived up to the potential I know they have because they just don’t care enough to actually apply themselves, and it’s really sad. I avoid this situation at all costs, but in return at least with myself I probably try and do too much at once. Actually, I know I try and do too much at once, and right now my body and health are paying for it. My fingers are crossed that it will be worth it in the end.
Anyways, back on topic. I had to write an on-the-fly article for CollegeFashionista this week because me and Amy agreed that the backgrounds of my last article and this one were too similar. Instead I took another new photo and will be writing my typical new article next week and the article I had originally written to go up tomorrow (or I suppose today by the time I finish writing this entry seeing as it’s 11:57) will be ‘submitted’ on the 7th to go live the 14th. It actually worked out for the best since my flight from Florida next weekend doesn’t land until 11am and I would have sort of been beyond pushed for time and running around like a chicken without it’s head trying to figure out where I was going to get an article from. Now I won’t have to worry about writing the article within like 4 hours of time after I’m back or writing it before I leave since I’ll already have it done. The new article going up definitely isn’t as good, but it’s still not disappointing! Just very… snowy?
Now that I have straight bangs back I’m itching to get back to having platinum hair… having the ombre was a nice change for a 2-3 months but come mid/late-February when I get my hair done next, I think I’m going to make my way back to platinum. I just feel like if I’m going to be blonde, I need to go all out. This nice little break for it has restored my passion for the platinum! I was going to go red come June/July but now that all hinges on if I go to England or not. I may actually keep this ombre until I know whether or not I’m going overseas or not. I love it but honestly half of the point was to darken my hair a little to give it a better base to go red in case I was going overseas, so when I was over in England I wouldn’t have to worry so much or spend money on getting my hair done so often (I can tone my own hair if it’s red, and I really only need my roots done once every 2.5/3 months instead of every 4-6 weeks when I’m platinum). So in all likelihood I’ll keep the ombre until mid-March when I hopefully get an answer about study abroad (cross your fingers for me everyone, please, there aren’t words strong enough to describe how badly I want to get accepted and go…)
Wow, this entry has gone on much longer than I originally anticipated for it to go on. I think it’s the relaxed feeling of the day and having been able to sleep in rubbing off on me. Now it’s actually legitimately almost February and it’s still blowing my mind how fast this year has gone. Is everyone keeping up with their resolutions? I didn’t make any this year because I never keep them, but I haven’t even started in on most of my goals yet and it’s frustrating! I’ve only started on the one to get accepted into Study Abroad haha. Hope everyone had a lovely week!
