it’s been pretty breezy and overcast in tally and not very humid which means it’s actually bearable to be outside for a few minutes. we’re loving it.
i don’t know about you but i have some thin, fine and flat hair. it’s a combo that needs quite a bit of work in the morning. there are a couple different things i’ve tried in my time and this one takes all the marbles. if you need volume in your hair, try this! you don’t need much at all but it keeps your hair volumized all day. if you feel like midway through your day it’s lookin a little flat again, this product is great for just using the tips of your fingers at the root of your hair and just rub it kinda aggressively and bam! volume! maybe i’ll do a before and after to show you how awesome this stuff is.
enjoy your saturday!
uggh. my heart is so heavy tonight that it literally aches.
my friend from high school lost her mom this morning. her mom. i can’t imagine if i lost my mom today.
then i read this blog and i felt sick to my stomach. it’s hard to read stories like this and not feel something. i’m moved to compassion and my mind starts racing with thoughts of all of the people in the world who are suffering, who are in pain, who’ve lost someone. one of my strengths is empathy and reading things like this can put me over the edge. i physically feel for days what others may just think, which is fine, i just fixate and over analyze and i get sad, really sad. it can be debilitating at times.
did you know that every 5 minutes 25,000 children die from a preventable disease? the number is astronomical. in the time it has taken me to write up to this point, 25,000 children have died. that is so difficult for my mind to wrap around.
that is not my world. my world is plush and comfortable. i have never known what missing a meal looks like. i’ve never been sick and not been able to go to a doctor. i spend my money on things that are so pointless. i need to get this, like really get it and let it change my life. reality is that people are dying from a normal “cough.” i know there is a balance, but jesus acted when the poor, the sick and the dying called his name. i feel comforted knowing he is caring for these babies, but what is my role? what is he asking me to do to care for them?
i think we all should ask ourselves this question. maybe you already are. you’re a step ahead of me that’s for sure.
what are your thoughts on this?
what is it with girls letting their rear’s hang out of their shorts? or maybe the better question to ask is what is it with the companies making shorts that allow girls rear’s to hang out?
you are in PUBLIC. i didn’t ask for that.
do you know what else is funny? college students turning down frizz pops and surveys.
during the last two days we surveyed 1,000 students and handed out frizz pops too. it’s amazing to see how students react when you ask them a direct question when they aren’t expecting it. let me just tell you, sometimes it’s just downright awkward.
here’s a common interaction between surveyor and student:
me: hey wanna do a quick survey? we’re giving away free ice pops today
student: (cutting eyes quickly) uhh, uhhh, (head shaking back and forth) uhh, nah im good.
me: ok, are you sure it’s a billion degrees outside?
student: ignores me.
HELLO. FREE ICE POPS. you’re an adult, look me in the eye and say no thanks!!
who turns down a free ice pop on a day like today anyway? a crazy person, that’s who!
oh! and ps.
do you like that header up there ↑?
i just made it! i’m pretty proud of my illustrator skills tonight.
you know you’re jealous
a conversation between the mr. and i…
k: what should i write about in my blog tonight?
s: you should write about nom nom
k: gross, i hate that word.
s: you should wriiiiiiite, “he’s climbin in yo windows, he’s snatchin yo people up”
have you seen that youtube video yet? i think you should go to youtube.com and type in alabama huntsville news and just sit back and watch. you will LAUGH. oh antoine.
and do you know what? my camera cord (the one that loads all my pictures onto my computer) is on strike and hasn’t been working very well for me. it’s like it knows when i need it on and it purposely blinks and then turns off. i pull it out and put it back in, turn camera on and bam! again. same thing. it’s so frustrating! i don’t want to buy another chord….
onto day 2.
