Hi bellas! ♥ Here's my week in a nutshell.
♠ Cut my hair. The ends were a horrible mess and kept falling off anyway every time I brushed or straightened my hair, so I figured that what the heck, I'll try something different, and sat down in front of a mirror and started snapping away... with nail scissors. Yeah, did it myself. Pretty damn proud of it, too, considering my previous attempts at cutting my own hair have been................. less than flattering. XD
The change is pretty radical, especially since I haven't really posted any pictures of my hair without extensions or wigs, but... what do you guys think? :3
♠ Last Sunday marked five (5!!) months that I've actually managed to stay in a relationship, which is pretty fucking HUGE by my standards. :o For that, I tried to do my new hair nicely (not very expertly, I admit, but damn, it's so much better than the last time I cut my hair short 'cause back then I couldn't work a freaking flatiron XD), dressed up, and had Aleksi moping and brooding because he'd come to meet me right after work and hadn't had the chance to freshen up. I thought he looked good. D:
What did we do, then? Well, Aleksi, the sweetest boyfriend on earth, told me I could pick the movie AND the place we'd go to eat before it. And I, the most romantic girlfriend on earth, picked The Rise of the Planet of the Apes (instead of Friends With Benefits, which was also an option), and Mc-fucking-Donald's.
... Seriously, sometimes I wonder what's wrong with me. XD
But then there was this amazing moment when Aleksi pointed out the difference between our dates five months ago (no food, just tea, or latte with soy milk, chocolate uneaten) and our five-month anniversary (Big freaking Bacon burgers and fries - admittedly, with diet coke, but still). I was like, wow, and went all silent and stunned for a moment, and he was like, "I'm so proud of you.", and I grinned like crazy and thought about how proud I was of the both of us. Because if that wasn't us kicking some major eating disorder-ass, I don't know what is.
♠ My left shoulder has been acting up lately, and on Tuesday it just totally exploded. (Not literally. Thank God.) I left in the middle of my Spanish class, in so much pain that I nearly cried, and went home, downed several different pills and went to sleep at 10 am. Obviously I couldn't meet up with Aleksi like I had planned, so what does he do? He turns up at my door, bearing food and candy and wine (that we had to leave for later because of my meds) and flowers and a freaking teddy bear and then proceeds to mother-hen over me for the rest of the night. ;____; I'm sure it's entirely because of him that I was back in action the day after. ♥
Teddy and the flowers. He said he'd specifically asked for something pink and something that's hard to kill because his confidence in my ability to take care of flowers is overwhelming like that. XD I thought it was adorable.
♠ It's been all fall-y! *w* I love fall when it's beautiful like this, and even if it's rainy and cold it's okay if I get to stay indoors, burn candles and drink tea. The weather has been horrible for the past two days, but Wednesday was gorgeous. ♥
♠ Nursed back to health by my kick-ass bf, I was able to join my uni friends at Limeksen Appro - that is, a major bar crawling event. Had a wonderful time, remembered to drink water and soda at reasonable intervals, and didn't detect even a shade of a hangover the day after - pretty much perfect, if you ask me. ♥
It was also the first time I showed up with my short hair in front of all my friends. I was freaking nervous about it, but the response was overwhelmingly positive and left me feeling all giddy and warm! :3 This time, I managed to do some styling, too.
I guess that's about it (so far). I'm ridiculously behind on my school work due to my shoulder and other stuff, but I'm confident that I can handle whatever the world throws at me. This year, I'm not facing it alone, after all. :3
