I'm an attention hog.
I just want people to love me.
They do, actually. A lot of people love me.
So why am I always looking for more affirmation instead of resting happy, knowing that lots of people like me and think I'm great?

This is Madness

Apparently, I shouldn't be left alone in a room with scissors and a mirror. 
Crazy things happen. 
Like, my hair goes missing. I did not have bangs earlier today. Everyone at church can tell you.
 I straightened my hair, and I had no bangs. 
The hair at the front of my head was as long as the rest of it.
Then I got home. 
I dunno what happened after that, but this is what I look like now:

Crazy, right?
It all started with just barely trimming the rough ends off. Some of those ends were like 6 months old and getting icky. But... that little snip, snip is addicting, and I thought "I'll just trim up these front bits a little more so the edges will be a little nicer." And then I thought "I'll just shape this up a little so it'll be more like swoopy bangs." And then I thought "I wonder what I would look like with legit bangs?" 
And then I thought "That's just crazy talk. Don't even think about it. Do not cut bangs."

I didn't do it all at once. I did it like an eighth of an inch at a time. It took over an hour, because I went so slow. 

I told you, folks. It's madness.

And the worst part about it is, it's going to look absolutely ridiculous after I wash my hair and all those little bangs curl up. 

P.S. I do think it's pretty cool to be a grown up because I can cut my own hair and not get in trouble for it. lol

School Update

I know y'all wanna know what's going on. I didn't want y'all worrying about me.
( ... okay, sort of. I really do like it when people worry about me sometimes. It makes me feel like they care about me. And who doesn't want to be cared about, really?)

Anyway. If I can just make it past Tuesday afternoon, I'll be all right. The rest of the semester is only two weeks long after that, and it will just be finals, which I'm not really worried about. I've made good grades so far, so I'll just study up and be all right. Pretty sure it'll be like coasting after this past week.

I've spent the entire week stressing about the beginning of the upcoming week.

Monday, I have a group presentation due. I have not met with my group. I just now put together a slideshow. It'll take about a minute to flip through. It's supposed to be a 20 minute presentation. I'm kind of at a loss. Maybe I should email my group members and ask them to please present a small essay for each point on the slide. I don't even know. Ach.

Tuesday my "big" English paper is due. It's not that big, but it's the first actual research paper I've ever had to do. (Thanks for not making me do one in HS, mom. -no, that's not sarcasm...) So, I've spent 4 weeks complaining about it and 1 week actually working on it. So, that's what I did for Thanksgiving. (well, I did other stuff too.) ANYWAY. I still have to write a conclusion, source evaluations, and touch up my citations. Which doesn't sound like much, but it kind of still is.

And in case you're not aware, it's midnight, Sunday morning. Which means I have 36 hours til my presentation is due, and 56 til my paper is due, with church and work and classes between. You would not believe how short those hours are going to feel.

And I think if I don't go to bed right now (I'll get 8 hours of sleep...) those hours are gonna feel even longer since I'd be tired. Let's hope I don't have nightmares about my research paper and children being eaten by a pack of grinning, evil white lions again. (yes, really.)

P.S. I am so thankful for all of my new friends from Breezy Hill. I feel accepted. Which is nice. I'm used to having to fight to feel that way, and I didn't have to. <3 p="p">
P.P.S. I am so thankful that I am not sick. So many people are so sick right now, and I can't imagine trying to finish out the semester on a flu or stomach flu!

P.P.P.S. I am so thankful ... now I don't remember what I was going to say. But I really am so thankful for so much.

Today I spent the afternoon crafting with one of my "grown-up friends." I am so thankful for her.

Sometimes I'm Vain

Here are a few of my favorite outfits from lately. 
This is my official hipster uniform. Plus my favorite woolly man-socks.

 This jacket has been a wardrobe staple for like 5 years running. Everything in this picture was free, on clearance, or thrifted.
I should post a close up of my vintage silk scarf from this outfit. It's way cool.

Day trip to the mountains outfit.
My outfit from church was really cute this morning. Too bad I didn't take a picture.
Also: Please note that my hair is up. That is today. It's finally "long" enough for a tiny baby ponytail. lol
