Not that I need it to. My hair is already around 22 inches. For those who cannot do math, that is almost 2 feet. Wow. I started growing it out with the idea of selling it. Over the past couple of years I have fallen in love with it.

I did so many different things with it while it was short, always thinking that if I had more hair, it would be more versital.


The longer it got, the harder it was to manage. I love it to death, I appreciate all the compliments I get. Especially when I’m at the cafe, but not working so my hair is down. Regulars give me double looks before realizing that the girl with the bun who is normally behind the counter is me, the girl with long wavy hair past her waist. But back to it being annoying. I used to wear necklaces all the time. Now they just get tangled up into a mess with my dark locks. For about a year I had my haircut like this:

Kim Kardashian with bangs or fringe as some people call it.

Now, my bangs have grown out well past my chin and look a little frumpy but it doesn’t bother me. Although I find it very aggravating when my “bangs” stick strait out from the rest of my ponytail. I end up looking like this kid:


My bangs stick up like this from my ponytail sometimes. haha

Oh well. We all have those days. Another annoying part of long hair is that it weighs itself down, so you get less volume. Since I naturally get oily really fast and my hair pulled down so close to my scalp, I end up having to wash it every day. I realize this is very unhealthy for it, but I can’t really do much about it. I do use to CWC method to wash my hair sometimes, when I remember, so it doesn’t hurt it as much. Maybe I’ll write about that later.

While my grandparents take a trip to India. I miss them already. During the school year, I don’t get as much time to just sit and talk to them, but the fact that I could on a second’s notice makes me feel much more comfortable. My grandparents are the two people in the world that I would do anything for.

Of course Daddy and I get into fights frequently, but I am a Daddy’s Girl at heart. (I call my grands Mama and Daddy.) We are both hot headed and love to make our opinions heard, many times simultaneously. =] I always learn something new when talking to him about our family, he remembers things from so long ago. He is the one who pushes me to be my best, because he expects nothing less. Every small achievement of mine is a huge deal to him, and he really does know how to make me feel special. I miss him already. Who am I going to tease now?

My grandmother is the most perfect person in the world I have ever met. I know, everyone says it, there is not such thing as perfect. But you haven’t met my grandmother. She has all the patience that Daddy and I lack. She keeps us both cool when we are on edge. She is the best cook in the world (I’m hungry right now). Every decision she makes is based on morals and not personal gain. Things are clear to her, she lives by the golden rule (Treat others how you would like to be treated.) I really hope one day I can shape up and become even half as wonderful as her.

I’m starting the 6 week count down till they come home. Hopefully it won’t feel as long as it seems to be.


Viva Glam: can you get me hooked? March 14, 2010

I have taken a big interest in makeup lately. I noticed that MAC does this thing called Viva Glam, where all the funds to the MAC AIDS fund. I thought this was a great idea! It makes it me feel like I have a reason to buy a $14 lipstick (or maybe 12, I can’t remember). I don’t even wear lipstick and that got me excited. I think I’m going to buy one for my mother first, maybe the Cyndi Lauper one.  It was released at the same time as Lady Gaga’s (I’m not a fan of this blueish light pink though. It will be my first MAC product purchase. I just couldn’t justify spending so much money on one product before. I’ll get to see the quality of the lipsticks and maybe I’ll want to buy more or maybe I won’t see what the hype about is. If I like the one I get my mother, I’ll get one for myself (an older color though), but it won’t have that cute little signature on the tube. MAC just started putting celeb sigs on there with these two lovely ladies. The rest of the Viva Glam line just has a red band around the tube. I wish the Viva Glam line wasn’t just lipsticks, if it was eyeshadow, I would be all over it. But I guess I’ll be taking the plunge with lipstick.

SAT and life around it March 13, 2010

Filed under: friends,school — teddygrams @ 9:00 pm

SAT is always capitalized. It makes it look so much more important. So much more intimidating. I planned my whole weekend around those three letters. And now that its over and the stress of that is gone, I have to deal with all the school work that I pushed out of the way because of the SAT. How do I think I did after the 2 days of no thoughts other than SAT?

Alright. I had read examples of  6s for essays and I finished with way too much time so I went back and added to mine, I think I just made my maybe a 6 to a definite 4. After that shaky start I went straight into a math section which boosted my confidence. I finished the next 6 sections feeling like a winner. This was until I came to a second grid-in. I thought about it and realized that it meant that one of them was experimental, but which one. On one, I got every single problem right, on the other, I missed 3. The only 3 problems that I didn’t know how to do in math in all of the SAT. I really hope that it was an experimental section and won’t be counted. After that I had 3 more sections to go and really had to pee. During the break I tried to calm myself down, but the worry had already kicked in. The next three sections were a struggle and I feel that I did average on, about the same as before. So did I reach my goal of 2000? We’ll find out in 3 or 4 weeks.

To push that out of my mind, I was going to go to starbuck’s with one of my girlfriends who had also taken the SAT. GIRLFRIEND. Not the random stalker of one of my other girlfriends. I just happen to be nice to him, he followed along. This ruined the mood of my girlfriend’s boyfriend, and they had a 30 second fight which ended up bothering her for the rest of the day. She is probably still cleaning up some of the mess. My question coming from all this is why. Why do people think that their friend’s friends are their friends too? Why do they not realize that they are causing tension?

We did manage to have fun. The two of us plus one. We went to my place of work and got my check and some fries. Some of which were so large that they reminded us of some male anatomy. We laughed and did want girls do, by the time we were ready to go to Starbuck’s my other girlfriend called. She was free and could come with us. This is the same girl whose stalker was with us. So we all met up at Starbuck’s and my GF (from SAT) and I made sure to sit between my other GF and her stalker. We did this for a few reasons. Some of which include: my GF has a boyfriend. That boyfriend is also a close friend. This GF likes to flirt, enough were it can strain relationships. Even sitting across the table from her, this girl’s stalker still managed to get physical. He stuck out his legs to tough hers. When GF from the SAT and I saw this we immediately threw our own legs into the mix.  I also have failed to mention that there was a creeper sitting 3 feet away from us at this time. He kept joining conversations and making comments. We left the cafe with a little bit of a caffeine rush and a general creeped out feeling.

I then went to GF from SAT’s house and we chilled for 2 hours. I was really tired and not very entertaining. Then GF #2’s boyfriend called and said that she had informed him that I needed help on WebAssign for Physics. I finished it at GF from SAT’s house and then left. (or she kicked me out, haha)

I came home to see the list of stuff to do on my mirror. This is why junior year is called the hardest. Its all about juggling the intense school work and all the extra stuff thrown at you for college in the years ahead. I’m just afraid that I might lose my balance and trip.
