Pics and it happened!

So I cut my hair over the weekend. All the bleaching and dying, and bleaching and dying some more, that I did with my hair last year really kind of dried it out and I was getting tired of trying to make it look decent everyday...so I hacked it off. Well, rather....I put it in a low ponytail and had my mom hack it off for me. Then I trimmed it up to a halfway decent length and I'm happy with it now. It's simple and it feels nice. 

Pulling Faces

So this will mark day six of teeth whitening. I've been using those generic brand whitening strips for five days now and I've been attempting to document the results.






Why yes I did have to pull some interesting faces to reveal that much of my teeth for the camera. And yes, it looks way awkward when cropped. Meh. I guess I'm used to looking awkward....but honestly I'm only seeing mild results. Granted, it's supposed to take fourteen days, but....

Anyways, it's Friday and I get to leave today. Woot! Laterz.

Withering

You know, I think if I didn't have a little bit of food still hanging out in my room I would start becoming very malnourished. I'm running out of money for food here on campus and I have this innate phobia of the cafeteria. Specifically, eating there alone, which is how it always seems to go down...

I have this fear that when I run out of crap to snack on in here I'm gonna die. If I had a kitchen and a job, I would just stock up on groceries and cook my own food. Which would be decidedly better than anything the cafeteria could offer but I don't currently have access to such things.

So I feel like I'm gonna have to suck it up and go back down to Garvey for food next week. I'd rather not, but I'm gonna have to. I can't subsist on just fruit and crackers....

Ominous Skies and Rain Clouds

Good afternoon! How is everyone? I'm doing alright today. I'm currently sitting at my desk eating some soup with scallops and working on an English essay about Nazi propaganda photos. Interesting stuff right?





Them clouds look pretty ominous don't they? Within minutes of uploading these photos, the sky grew tremendously darker and now we're having a torrential downpour. I could only giggle in amusement as half-naked hussies scrambled for the indoors. No lightning or thunder yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.


Regressing a bit, I have to say that I had a fantastic weekend. I didn't really accomplish much of anything and even though I felt tired and hazy from all the humidity, it was still good. It was relaxing and I had fun. 


*Lightning!!!!*


My brother gave Chris his old xBox 360 and then Chris bought MW3 so they spent a good chunk of Saturday night playing. I sat around in my brother's room and watched them with a glass of Coke and tequila. That was enjoyab…

70 Degrees F

It's a warm and blissful day. The windows are open and Kayla is propped up in her chair, lounging in front of the computer, and letting the warm sun seep into her pale glowing legs. She is calm and she is happy. A sip of water slides down her throat and her eyes focus once more upon the screen....






Wellllll...classes are done for the week and I'm SO looking forward to getting out of here tonight. I've got my stuff packed up already so now I'm just watching Youtube videos and killing time before Chris arrives. I even cleaned my room already. How productive hmm?


If only I could convince myself to get a head start on my homework for the weekend. Blegh. I just want to sit here and enjoy the cool refreshing breeze coming in the window. Gods, it's so lovely outside right now. If I had someone to chill with I'd probably go for a walk.


If you guys check out my daily style blog you'll know that I mentioned that I've worn a dress every day this week. It's true, I…

One Lovely Blog Award

List seven things about yourself and then tag 15 other bloggers.

1. I've been suffering from depression for over 6 years and I've just now started taking antidepressants. I feel better already and I feel as though I can start letting things go and move on.

2. My dream is to live and teach in Japan. After I graduate, my plan is to get a job as an ALT with JET or another government sponsored program and then drag my boyfriend with me.

3. I love raspberry iced tea. I drink it all spring and summer long. Following behind this is iced Matcha Latte.

4. I'm obsessed with Heath Ledger's Joker. v_v *shame....* I even write fan-fiction and collect photos on my computer. He's just a fascinating take on my favorite comic book villain.

5. I have almost all the Puppet Master movies. I'm only missing a few of the newer ones and I'm always on the hunt to find them cheap somewhere. My favorite puppet is Blade, of course!

6. My favorite color to wear is grey, because it'…

Glass Half Full....

But what's in the glass? ^_^






It's so warm outside right now that I have my window open and the breeze coming through feels heavenly. I know it's not very "gawthick" and insults my pale skin's sensibilities but I love sunshine. It's almost like I can sit outside and photosynthesize or something. At least I can make Vitamin D and I'm sure that'll also help my antidepressants along in treating my depression problems. So I'm gonna soak up lots of rays. After applying SPF  50 of course.


On my last day of Spring Break (which was Sunday) I transplanted my Aloe Vera into a bigger pot, since it was getting awfully crapped in the previous one. Now hopefully it can expand and grow huge and I'll have tons of aloe this summer for any possible (definitely probable) sunburns. 






Of course my mom's cat wanted in on every photo, but hey, maybe she's worried about sunburn also. She does spend an awful lot of time on the porch in the summer, lying in the …

Transitions

Well spooky peoples, my spring break is drawing nearer to an end. Unfortunately, I spent most of this week being rather sick and dealing with side effects from my new pills. Add on to that some crap weather and we've got one rather unhappy me.

I went to the doctor on Monday to talk about my depression issues. I was lucky enough to get a doctor who is well-versed in mood disorders and takes treatment seriously. So we talked a little bit about my symptoms and medical history. He ended up prescribing my a medication called Celexa, which is a generic version of Prozac. It's supposed to take a minimum of two weeks to take full effect, so until then I just have to ride out the nasty side effects. Which have included thus far: headaches, insomnia, and nausea. Oh yeah, they also make me a bit drowsy and dizzy.

I just keep telling myself that this is going to help and to stick with it. I'm tempted to just chuck the whole bottle of pills into the garbage at this point though. I want…

Spring Break!

Hello ladies and gents!~ It's officially spring break now and I'm back home in Buffalo with my family, which means I'm feeling much much happier about life in general. So happy, in fact, that I went ahead and dressed up. I haven't worn these dreadfalls in.....years I guess, and I decided it was time to dust them off and give them a go before I sell them. I'm simply not a fan of the color combination anymore so I might be in the market for dreads of a different hue...


So...if anyone's interested in buying them off me, I'll probably sell them around $30-40 w/o shipping. I paid at least $100 for them new and they haven't gotten much use, so more than half off is quite deal no? Let me know!



A very grey day

It was sunny this morning, I swear. Sunny and so warm the snow was melting. Now it's cloudy, cold, and grey again. The snow looks dismal and makes me long for spring and summer. Screw my seasonal allergies, anything is better than this.

It's also March 1st, which means Black March is starting. So no buying or downloading any content (music/movies/etc) from major corporations. If the mood strikes me though, I will support local artists who actually retain all the funds from their work. It shouldn't be a big issue though, I have plenty of old books, music, and movies to tide me over for more than a month, no problem.

I missed out on Sophistique Noir's theme of the month post. I had this great idea to assemble all the articles of grey clothing I own (which is a LOT) and photograph it, but I've been a bit busy this week and I got side-tracked. So perhaps next month then.

Next week is spring break and I'm super excited. It'll be a whole week of dressing up and c…
