Pulled an all-nighter for a project and had a presentation this morning. Didn’t get the chance to shower, comb my hair, or anything of the sort… so I stepped out with my zits, grease, shadows and all.
I look awful but I’m kind of loving it.
Today, I don’t feel like hiding. :)
My bangs, once again, were getting too long.
I usually just grow them out or go to salon to get them fixed but today, I thought, “Heck, why don’t I just cut them myself?! What’s the worse it can happen?” So I grabbed a pair of scissors and began snipping off my hair bit by bit, with this (Girl-with-the-Dragon-Tattoo-do) as my fallback plan, ahahah. In the end, I think it turned out rather well… in fact, better than my usual salon! :P
Phew! I admit that I’m a tinsy bit relieved that I didn’t have to use my fallback plan.
So, I went to NYC last week with a small group of friends. We went with a bus tour but decided to stray off and do our own thing, which meant we had to find our own way back to our hotel in New Jersey. Now, New Jersey isn’t far but when it’s 11:30pm and the last bus on the schedule is listed for 9:30pm, it feels like a planet away. We couldn’t contact the hotel nor the taxi service with the pay phone and overall, it was a scary situation. My friend even broke down in tears because it honestly seemed like we had nowhere to go at that moment in time. Eventually, we got some help from some friendly New Yorkers (or perhaps they were from NJ) and got back to the hotel safe and sound.
But reflecting back on that half an hour of panic… maybe I was ignorant, or maybe too tired to care… but I didn’t think it was all that bad. Though it was unlikely, I was totally okay with roughing it and letting the city be my bed for one night. (Actually, if we really weren’t able to reach our hotel, we probably would’ve gone to a motel in NYC)
It’s a scary yet refreshing to be able to face life head on. :)
“Stuck in a world
No longer turning
Always the girl
Waiting for something
Too many days
Walking around sleeping
Open my eyes
I’m tired of dreaming
I wanna run with the reckless emotion
Find out if love is the size of an ocean
Even if I crash down and burn out
At least I’m gunna know what it’s like
To feel alive
Sun on my face
Lights of the city
Maybe in love
Or just learning to be
On my two feet
I can only imagine
I’ll say the words
And believe it will happen”
I love this song sung by Melissa O’Neil. :)
