Hair Donation!

Finally getting around to mailing my birthday hair donation to CWHL (Children With Hair Loss)! That’s another thing to check off my 2013 bucket list! I have quite a few more things on the list so expect more frequent posts with updates!

Here are my before and after pics:

NOW TO GROW IT BACK OUT! HUZZAH!

So I was feeling gross and depressed today–probably a combination of nasty weather, February holidays, and a giant coding project that I really should be working on–so I went out to the store and bought the following:

COFFEE (“Wide Awake” single servings for the Keurig)

Milk (for coffee)

Sugar (for coffee)

Bobby pins (wouldn’t want my hair falling into the coffee…)

And HAIR DYE (because when I get depressed, I do drastic things with my hair….see my previous post about cutting off 12 inches….)

I’m about to use this fancy shmancy Precision Foam Colour (WITH A ‘U’, BECAUSE IT’S JUST THAT FANCY!) by John Frieda to dye my hair “Dark Caramel”….which is also coffee related, just saying.

I’m hoping for something Natalie Portman-esque, but I know that’s not how these things tend to work. Still, a girl can dream, can’t she?

I’ll follow up with pictures in an hour or two.

Edit: I don’t think this is going to do anything (my hair is so naturally dark) but I LOVE this hairstyle!

Things I did today instead of doing the things I needed to do today.

So I mainly go to school online (where else do you learn web design?) I work Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. I do my schoolwork on Monday & Wednesday.

Except when I don’t do my schoolwork on Monday & Wednesday.

In what I’m sure will be a FASCINATING chronological display, HERE ARE THE THINGS I DID TODAY INSTEAD OF THE THINGS I NEEDED TO DO TODAY.

1. Got up at 7 a.m., started my coffee, checked email.

2. Email from Pottermore? I wonder what’s going on….

3. Go to Pottermore

4. HOLY BAJESUS, THE HOUSE CUP IS GOING TO BE AWARDED IN A FEW DAYS???

5. DUEL ALL THE SLYTHERINS!

6. MAKE ALL THE POTIONS!

7. COLLECT ALL THE CHOCOLATE FROG CARDS!

8. Look at clock. Freak out. It’s 10:30 a.m.

9. Put on clothes to get day started.

10. Grab coffee, admire new mug

11. Spill coffee into lap.

12. Change back into sleep clothes.

13. Have a very nice conversation with sweet old maintenance man who came over to fix living room wall…..while in sleep clothes…with Zitopolis on face…new colonies every day…

14. Clean entire house

15. Make a chocolate chip cookie cake in a pie pan with leftover Halloween candy smushed into the top

16. Decide house smells like Christmas.

17. Decide to make house look like Christmas.

18. Tear apart an old Christmas basket full of fake poinsettias.

19. Fashion fake flowers into new Christmas decorations for stairs.

20. Pretend to be Frank Sinatra. Curse Pandora commercials about engagement rings.

21. Take a shower.

22. SKIP CLASS (Psychology I…at Community College…I have no regrets.)

23. Internet from 4 p.m. to about 8 p.m.

24. Try make up tutorial from YouTube

25. Accidentally Prostitute Face (okay you can’t tell from the picture, but I caked the makeup on- JUST LIKE THE TUTORIAL GIRL DID!)

26. Spent 15 minutes washing face off. (Put honey and bandaids on Zitopolis to discourage expansion of the colonies.)

27. Read ONE page of homework.

28. OH MY GOD, I FORGOT WORDPRESS EXISTS!

29. Make this post instead of doing productive things.

30. Finish this post

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS? DO YOU SEE? TWELVE INCHES OF HAIR!!!!!

For those of you unfamiliar with my antics, I usually chop the crap out of my hair whenever it gets this long. I usually regret it, too, but what can you do? It’s hair, I made it myself. I can always make some more.

Anyway, in honor of my 22nd birthday THE FIRST ANNUAL ANNIVERSARY OF MY TWENTY-FIRST BIRTHDAY, I’m going to give a present to get a present: I will be donating all this hair to Locks of Love or Wigs for Kids (haven’t decided which yet) and getting a pixie haircut. It is decided. No backing out.

And yes, this might have something to do with me watching ‘Roman Holiday’ with Audrey Hepburn in it last night, but I’ve also wanted to donate my hair again for the last few years. Okay, yeah- AND I WANT TO LOOK LIKE AUDREY. Is that a crime?

Let the countdown to December the 5th BEGIN!
