Well I have to say, I’m not hating the hair.
I was feeling a little woozy when I got to Kelly Ann’s place. She ran my Visa before we started (naturally, I tipped her $20 + ) and told me that it was going to be a process. My hair was so damaged, we were going to have to strip the colour down and then recolour it 3 different times. It took a total of 5 hours. The wooziness increased throughout the evening and several times I caught myself microsleeping under the heat lamp. When I got home, I snapped a few “after” shots (for Kelly Ann) then ran to the bathroom. Full projectile vomit. I was able to go and lie down, and thankfully, Josh nursed me back to health.
Two days later- it’s still kicking my butt- whatever it was- and I feel like there are needles sticking in every joint I have. It’s not the flu- I’m not even “sick”, as in, a virus or anything. Whatever is going on in my body right now is definitely systemic and attacking my nerves and bones. The pain is excruciating, and it hurts to even walk. My feet feel like they’ve been beaten for hours.
On the bright side of things, my Nutrition final is due tomorrow and then I’ll need to do one more Substance Abuse Treatment Centers assignment and then I’ll be out of school for the semester!
Back to bed.
We can’t sleep.
J and I decided to get all gussied up tonight. We used Oil of Olay’s Regenerist microderm abrasion-in-a-bottle facial scrub- it’s $28 bucks per bottle but man is it good stuff. It’s like a fine sand grain that heats up with added water; makes your face nice and warm.
Afterwards, we applied our facials; imported English clay for J- Mint Julip Eucolyptus clay for myself. We bleached our teeth using a home-bleaching kit while our clay faces dried.
We tried to sleep but were both restless. I think we’re both excited that we’ll soon be getting a long and necessary break from our classes. Only a few more weeks!
I cannot wait…………..
Although I have two assignments due in Substance Abuse Treatment Centers- and a final exam in Nutrition to study for- I’m going to be deliciously irresponsible and download an adventure game and play ’til the sun comes up.
Tomorrow I have an appointment at the salon. I’ll be getting dimensional colouring and a slight cut. The hairdresser is a pro- she’s had her pic taken with several guys from the Bravo channel and she’s very hard to secure an appointment with so I’m pretty darn excited. It’ll cost an arm and a leg (as in- $200 ish/ballpark) but given that I’ve only been to a salon once in my life- I’m going to frikking pamper myself. I think it’s long overdue.
So I’m off to game!
