False Advertising and (Hopefully) a New Friend


I have successfully made many recipes found on Pinterest over the past little while, so why not try the hair/beauty section?  This is why:

The title of this Pinterest article was: "How to: Victoria's Secret curls".  I would like to suggest an alternative title: "How to: look like you just woke up in the gutter after fighting crime all night with aerosol hairspray".  I really don't think I'm going to end up on a runway anytime soon.

I've been crazy-busy working on projects lately.  Graduate school kicks my butt, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  My most important and time-consuming project currently is trying to convince my parents to buy a cat.  Every morning, as soon as I wake up, I google (I'm keeping that lowercase because I think google is kind of full of themselves marking it red and insisting that I capitalize it) pictures of cute cats and send them to my parents.  Here are some of my recent submissions:

I don't actually live at home, but I would still like to be welcomed by a cute kitten when I come visit.  My dad is the most resistant.  His replies have included, "Obviously photoshopped" and "That cat looks ready to pounce.  SCARY!"  I really think we're making progress though since rumor has it he recently asked the dog (Jake) if he needs a kitten. I am considering making a powerpoint presentation about kittens.

In other news, I need to start working out more.  Since school started again in the fall I have completely slacked on the rock climbing and everything else (by everything else I mean walking briskly from my car to my destination--I just kind of saunter now).  I could ignore how weak I was getting until I tried a workout game for the Xbox Kinect.  After the first round of squats, my legs seized and I couldn't stand up.  I was falling down (and maybe screaming a little (a lot)) every time I tried to stand up and flopping all over the room as my brother and sister laughed hysterically.  It's not awesome that every time they get bored now, they ask me to go workout so they can have a good laugh.

I think that will be it for now.  Beware of the Pinterest hair/beauty section my friends, and if you know my dad, send him some pictures of cute kittens.
