Whoa Life!

Things are changing for me. It's crazy.

After 10 months of being engaged, I am no longer getting married. That was one of the hardest decisions of my life. It still hurts but I will get through it.

I am three days in this not smoking thing. I really want a cigarette right now. The past few days have been... irritating... so to say. But, so far, so good. Let's hope it keeps up that way.

Next week is going to be so exciting! I finally get to meet my internet BFFs. This one makes me squeeee a lot. I really can't wait to meet my lovelies!!!!

So, there will no longer be any wedding updates. Instead, there will be "My Plan to Move to Colorado Springs" updates. I'm anxious to graduate and get going on this new journey.

Where is life taking you?

Keeping Promises

I promised you a hair update and here it is. I went and had more cut off. But, just in the back. It's my reverse mullet and it's cute damnit. Also, I gave the silver dye a go. It didn't work out so well. My hair is currently faintly purple with two inches of gold roots. No biggie though. That just means that I get to do the next color sooner.

So, there you go. My failed hair experiment. :D

Teaser Tuesday!

I'm back from my hiatus and ready to go. You know the Tuesday drill kids.

Your mission should you choose to accept:
1) Grab the book you are currently reading.
2) Open said book to a random page.
3) Post two sentences from that page (no spoilers, please).
4) List the page number, title, and author of the book.

"So, what we propose to do is mount big rotating antennas, or aerials as you call them here, on the castle, and staff the place with huffduff boffins."
The duke frowns.

Page 258 of Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson.

P.S. Tomorrow, I'll have pictures of the new haircut and *finally* silver color!

Silver: Getting Started.

So, first bleaching process down and it did better than I expected. Most of the green came out, but I failed at getting to all my roots on the back of my head. So, a second process it is... once my hair dries.

Just so you know what products I'm using, here's a picture.

I'm using MANIC PANIC FLASH LIGHTNING 40 vol. bleach. Since my hair is so short, I can get two processes out of one box.
To get the silver, I'm giving Stargazer in SILVERLOOK a try. Yes, I am aware that it looks a awfully purple in the picture. Such is the way to get silver. I promise.

I should have gotten a before picture but here's what my head looks like after one bleach process.

So, there's the update on the hair adventure. I'll keep them coming as I go on. I may do it all tonight or I may take a few days to get it done. I'm not sure on that yet. Till the next one!

Hiyo Silver Away!

I know it's been a while guys but I'm back! I had an out of town guest. I just wanted to do a quick post now and I'll come around tomorrow for Teaser Tuesday. Onward!

It's time to change my hair again. Nine weeks of green has been fun, but my life is changing so the hair is, too. The color of choice this time is silver. Tricky but should be fun. I'll be back with an update when I do it. But, for now, I'm off to eat dinner.
