My university (UW pride! Not really, I have very little "school spirit"...) is on a quarter, not a semester, system, which basically comes down to the fact that we have 3 sets of finals a year, and if you hate yourself and take summer quarters, like I used to do, then you have 4 sets of finals. Naturally, this sucks. Well, I just finished taking my finals yesterday, and let me tell you how much it sucked. Actually, first let me tell you that the amount of work you'll put into passing your finals is inversely proportional to the amount of work you put into your classes during the quarter. So, I put 0 effort into my classes, being a senior who's been busting her ass for 4 years prior to this quarter, I guess call this burnout or just senioritis... So, woke up at 10am on Sunday
, finally went to bed at 6:30pm Wednesday
, the rest of the time was spent in the library, with small breaks that involved taking tests, going to work and getting bubble tea (I hate you, bubble tea!). 72+ hours with no sleep isn't as bad when you have FEAR poking its pitchfork into your behind, "if you fall asleep, you'll fail your classes and buh-bye, financial aid which is the only reason you're able to afford school!" AH, I'm awake!!!
Yeah, the point of this is, studying always involves a certain degree of slacking off. And this time, PhotoBooth and an iBook were involved. I'm just posting these for fun.( Collapse )
My dreads, the "natural" part of them, are 5 months old, and to be honest, they don't look THAT different from the extensions, maybe slightly more frizzy, they've tightened up a LOT and pretty much the only fuzziness is at the roots where new growth occurs. That's also where the only loose hair is, I have very, very few loose long hair, my hair wants to dread very badly. It is still shrinking, though. I left 6 dreads without extensions just to have some that are totally my own, and they've lost more than an inch since they were started, which is a lot considering how short they were to begin with.
My lover is trying to make me go to a casino tomorrow so we can play Texas Hold'em, which I don't know how to play (he'll be teaching me now...) :-( Help!
