Feelin' pretty good

It's Friday! Yes, there's still another day of work, but I'm getting used to it. I'm not all 'I don't want to get up' like I was with my last job, so that's a good sign. The longer drive to work (20-25 minutes compared to 10 minutes) actually gives me more time to wake up, drink my coffee, and get ready for the day. Sure, now I'm eating in the car, but I don't mind really.

It's also the last day of my online class. Today the final exam is released, too, but I am planning on studying all day after work tomorrow and taking my exam on Sunday, after I've had a full night's rest and can focus. Yes, it's just an online class and it's an 'open notes' type exam and there's really no way I could fail...but, I really want to see what I've learned since the class really did teach me a lot of stuff that I can use at work at the animal hospital.
And while I was downstairs printing out my last lesson (since that's where my printer is), I was poking around my studio and thinking about what I want to start working on once I'm making more of an effort to craft. Then I noticed some bits and baubles I had made out of the last batch of paper pulp I had made. I had forgotten that I took one and dipped it in a hard coat sealant. It had dried...since I'm pretty sure it was about a month ago when I actually dipped it! Anyway, I really liked the way it looked. Though in the picture it looks like kind of liked chewed up gum.
I put a length of black chenille yarn through it to tie it on like a necklace (since I'm not a jewelry maker and just used what I had on hand)...I think it's super cool! And it's paper!
I, as I think I said in my last post, am also thinking of going back to my super short hair style. I like my hair now, but it really only looks as it's supposed to right after i wash it. And it's just not logical to shower every morning at 4's just not! So I snapped a shot of how my hair is meant to look. It's the messy look. I think it's cute, but I also think I have transformed into a short hair kinda girl. A friend of mine commented that my short hair makes me seem more confident and assertive...and he was totally right. I don't know why, but I feel less awkward...probably because I am not thinking about how awful my hair looks!
And this is how I really like my hair.

  1. Yeah, they both look cute, but I think the second (which is the original hair style) looks best. *^_^*
