-I just graduated from college after five years, one major, two minors, constant auditions, possible failure of classes, and figuring out what to do with my life.
-Last summer I was a nanny for an 8 and 10 year old one of whom was bi-polar and was smart enough to challenge any and all of my logic
-My best friend just got married and I'm still single...
-My liver may be crying for help
-I moved 5371 miles away, unable to see my family and friends for a full year
-I live on 300 Euros a month
-Because of above mentioned salary and complete lack of salary almost my entire senior year, and a ridiculously expensive month in New York for school, I have enough credit card debt to keep me busy for a little while.
-I'm currently a nanny for a two year old who barely speaks English and I have to figure out what she's saying
-I'm living in a country where I'm constantly asking "Do you speak English" with only a hope for a possible "yes"
So stressed much? And I want to be a high school teacher?
I don't remember when I found my first gray hair...all I remember are the numerous times after that I continued to do so. I'm young enough that I should not be getting these frequently. You know how people say, "Every time you pull out a gray hair, three more grow back?" Well I figured out why...it's because you're so stressed by the fact that you're 23 with graying hair, the rest of your head continues to lighten!!! So I found the solution...it's called BRILLIANCE - INTENSIVE COLOR CREME! Whatever brand you choose, most of them have this written somewhere on the box. And I believe in it wholeheartedly.
The first time I dyed my hair was with "reddish" highlights. It was in Lake Tahoe with my family and family friends the Calleses. Yvonne did my hair for me and I thought I was so cool because I had a slight difference in hair color (really I'm pretty sure there was no difference at all.) After that was experiments with different colors (but not much variance) and dying of my sister's, my friends', my dorm-mates'...everyone's hair. It got to the point where I didn't even have to read the instructions - which thank God for because these current ones were in French, Dutch, German, and Swedish... Anyway, this is my hair with grays...
Here is an estimation of what my hair would look like if I turned into Lady Gaga...
I know I'm getting older and I accept that because with it comes wisdom and maturity (so there :-P) But you can't blame a girl for liking her hair the color that it used to be...before boys, acting gigs, and children became a part of her life.
Of course you also can't blame a girl for loving the way life is...and being willing to sacrifice 8 euros for a chance to continue that life...in "Velvet Brown" hair of course.
Word of the day - haar - hair
