i got a lot of stuff done today. and girlified in the process.
for instance, i finally submitted my program statement (one year late) and my application for graduation (one day early).
i also found out that i passed my french proficiency exam (required for graduation). woo!
i got my car (or as it has been called in the neighborhood, “wash me!”) washed today. since my daddy raised me to take it to a place where you pay money to have other people wash and vacuum your car, i did that. who am i to dishonor what my father hath taught?
i also finally went grocery shopping… it was getting dire in my pantry and refrigerator… the presence of tumbleweeds and cacti are what ultimately drove me to shopping for food. and toilet brush heads. and liquid plumr foaming pipe snake (when you have 2450828418349018906139414316913095 tons of hair, even cleaning the drain out every day after the shower isn’t enough to keep it from slowing down and making you feel like your ankles are taking the nastiest bath ever).
i got a new pair of black shoes – but i actually needed them. AND they’re wide enough for my rice-pickin’ peasant feet. AND they’re comfy (although they do this odd suction thing that mades my feet adhere to the footbed. not unpleasant, just…odd). and i can dress ’em up (sorta) and dress ’em down.
i also got a pedicure. it was my first pedicure from a man. and let me say, he gave the most amazing foot and leg massage… i almost proposed before i came to my senses.
and my eyebrows waxed
and here’s the aforementioned hair chopstick just because
