And I was like...

Baby, baby, baby oooh
Like baby, baby, baby nooo
Like baby, baby, baby oooh
I thought you'd always be mine

Hahahaha sorry guys, I couldn't resist. I'm considering uploading my photo to this site. Minus the part where I'm a lesbian. I swear. I still like boys. hahahaha
I have survived the first casualty caused by my apartment. Barely though, and my finger would actually quite disagree with me. Stupid stove top that wouldn't turn hot, but when I full-fledged put my finger on it to test it out, it decided to be quite quite hot. Yay for roommates that have every kind of anti-burn cream out there.

But onto better things now. I have decided to start running. Not the kind where I get on the treadmill, run for about 1 minute and walk the rest of the mile, then brag to everyone I see that day that I ran for a 20 minutes. "Hey, you don't know me, but I ran today. Aaand for 20 minutes. You're so jealous, I know." (ha sorry about that.) But no, roommate is training for a half marathon, so she is teaching me how to begin running while she is doing the real thing. I do my 4 minutes running, 1 minute walking. All the while she is running circles around me (yeah, I wish I was kidding about that part).
And this picture couldn't apply any more perfectly. 

But after run we were stretching out and this little guy came to say hi.


Well kids, I went and did it. I chopped all my hair off. Yep. And the moral of the story is.. don't do those types of things on a whim. I definitely joined the ranks of the girl that cries after she gets her hair cut.. It's going to take me quite a long while to get used to this one. Thank goodness my hair grows kind of somewhat fast, and I have also doubled up on my biotin use. I'm hoping that by some miracle my hair will magically grown and I won't have to get used to this cut at all. Too wishful of thinking?

But at least I have Ginnifer Goodwin to look to for some styling tips. These are a few of my favorite of hers..

Now I just need to find myself a professional stylist to come and do my hair everyday.. Any of you know someone? hahaha


these are the ways you love yourself. (to forgive).

forgive yourself the nights you climb into bed full-face of makeup, too tired to take it off. forgive yourself the days when one latte is not enough, when the two major food groups are coffee and sugar. forgive yourself that one night when at two am you woke to use the bathroom and inhaled an entire chocolate bar instead. forgive the time spent with a man you now have not one nice thing to say about. and forgive just how long it took to get over him. he was not good and not kind and he is not your fault. keep some secrets closer. forgive yourself for actually loving the gentle curve of your hips. and to hell with a society which suggests you might not or should not. they herald your womanhood, the man you marry will lose himself in them, they will hoist groceries and children. they are sturdy--anchoring you firmly to this earth. forgive the nights you cannot sleep--sadness or some unnamed force pressing heavy on your chest. forgive the mistakes of the last several years. so you made them. okay. enough. move on. the mistakes and the fault-lines, they are the foundation. forgive yourself that you did not choose an easier path. and forgive yourself the sadness you caused those around you. the broken-promises and cutting words and the things left unsaid. fear was large and biting. forgive the anger you feel. feel it and then look again with kinder eyes. forgive yourself for not handling it all better, for feeling like you let others down. the path is not done, the road is not finished, why are you trying so hard to rush the whole thing? celebrate the fact that your story has some major departures. go ahead and use that expensive serum that promises to diminish those fine lines. protect and preserve your skin. but when the day does come when forehead creases no longer fade into the background, give thanks. humanity made visible! you will be loved all the more for this. you will love yourself all the more for this.  and please, for the love of all that is good and holy forgive yourself for loving a man who cannot love you back. love him anyway. send that love into the world and let it fill you up. the only way to know the story is to go out and and write it. live your way into it. ferociously. begin to live and work and fight and love with an unparalleled ferocity. let fear dictate nothing. unfurl your chest, you have all the armor you'll ever need. see with wide eyes and don't forget to laugh.

Quick update about my life as of late
  • Finally graduated school!
  • Only have about 60 more hours of my internship 
  • Made the great move back up to Salt Lake again (notice how I changed the title back to it's former glory?)
  • Moved in with a Vegan (she gets the au naturale popcorn, while I lather mine up in butter. We make it work)
  • We have had no internet for the past two weeks. Turns out I like the internet. I like it a lot.
  • We also have had no furniture except a kitchen table. Yesterday we went venturing to DI and finally bought some kitchen chairs though. We couldn't fit much more in my little car.
  • And I think the greatest news might be that I only have to fill my car up once every two weeks or so, rather than once every three days. Living in the same city where I work, wait, let's make that better.. Living a 5 minutes walk from my work makes life so much better. 
I think that's about all that's been going on. Hopefully once I get my internet back I'll be a little more faithful.
