I did the thing and got my hair done. I'm a redhead again. And I added some layers, since my hair is so long now; it falls slightly past the small of my back, and was actually a few inches longer before I got it trimmed today. I love the color. It's a dark auburn inside and a really vibrant red in the sunlight. It didn't cost all that much, either. And it should only have to be touched up every nine weeks or so, which isn't bad at all for red. Red fades so quickly. I really like it, and the girl at the salon I went to is now my new favorite hairdresser. I'm happy.
I'm thinking I might just start dying my hair again. It's been a number of years since I've done it regularly, or at all, really, so it would be nice to get back to it. Especially now, since the greys are starting to come in so much... And with my hair, the silver really stands out.
I'm thinking of doing a deep burgundy or auburn, something dark red for autumn. I miss having the red hair. So, we'll see. I'm gonna stop by Ulta tomorrow, see how much a color and a cut will run me every 6 to 8 weeks. It shouldn't be too much, I remember it only running about $90 or so to get it done a few years ago, and I doubt their salon prices have jumped up much in that time. So, who knows, maybe I'll be a redhead by the end of the weekend.
Or maybe I won't, depending on how much it costs to wash and fill the tank for the Versa and get some new bulbs for the headlights, as the drivers side one is out. We shall see.
I'm a right and proper adult again. It feels nice.
I know it's probably stupid of me at this point, but I hope... I hope with everything I am.
Can I just say that I love my job? Like, I seriously love it. The people I work with are seriously so nice. It doesn't feel like work most days.
And, now that I'm out and about and doing things again, I feel awesome. Really, truly fantastic. It's such a great feeling. That depression I had, I feel it retreating and I am in such a better place mentally.
I have an amazing work ethic when I'm doing something I enjoy. And that really came out in this job. I was doing a temp thing, 3 days a week, but the woman I was working for threw my name in for a full-time position on Friday, and I found out today that I got it! So, starting tomorrow, on my off days (Tuesday and Thursday) I'll be learning the ropes of the job I'm officially going to take over once my temp thing is up. The time shifts by an hour, instead of 7 I'll be starting at 8, which works just fine for me. It's just gonna be a little awkward for the next few weeks, where every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I start at 7, and every -Tuesday and Thursday I start at 8.
But, I'm thankful. I'm so thankful to have been given this opportunity. Joe did so much to get me in the door, and I didn't want to let him down, which is partly why I've been working so hard.
You know, I like my job. It's enjoyable and it's easy. The woman I work for/with couldn't possibly be nicer. I cannot express how thankful I am to have been given this opportunity. The hours are meh, I start at 7, but it wasn't hard to get used to and it sure as hell beats out that graveyard shift I had before. It's just sometimes... I just feel so alone. Going on break, going on lunch, it's just me, by myself. And, sure, I have Joe I could be texting in that time, but he's also working so I don't like to be a bother. I need to make some friends or something.
I've gone and marked the majority of my entries from the past eleven months private. It's better this way. I'll vent to myself, and if i feel I must post something, I'll just do it on private. Too much of my life has been public. Things needed to change.
So, finally some good news in my life. Though, it does mean I can't do something I've actually been looking forward to doing pretty much all week. And that I'll have to start getting up at the ass crack of dawn again. But, it's definitely a good thing and I sorely needed this. So...yay, I guess.
When I have the time to go through it, I'm probably going to be marking a whole lot of entries private. I've been far to public with my life here, it needs to change.
This is why I stopped posting so much. Too much information given out on a website like this, where people can be so petty - people then try use personal information against you, or just... stuff.
"Public" doesn't just stop at VR Members. It's viewable by anyone with Internet Service. World Wide Web.....I stress "World Wide".
From a security standpoint it's a better and safer option, my dear.
When you try to be nice and it gets thrown back I your face. Yeah, no, keep being a douchebag, who doesn't love that?
