Home For the Holidays

What a creative title, right? Well, currently, I'm sitting in the New Orleans airport waiting for a 3:45 flight back to Dallas. It's been torture, actually. Last night we (the fam + gram and grandpa) had Chinese food for dinner. Apparently it didn't really agree with my stomach and I upchucked at 11:30 ish last night and my stomach still isn't happy with me. All I've had to eat today is 100 calorie snack things, cinnamon toast crunch, a rice crispie treat and a small thing of yogurt. So in other words, no real mealage. Nothing sounds good, not even my favorite food. Argh. So I have 2 more hours to do nothing and browse along on my 'pooter.

I kinda didn't want to leave Connecticut this morning. It had just snowed Sunday night and it was a great surprise Monday morning waking up to mid-shin deep snow, but mom and dad both have to go back to work so alas, back to Texas we go. I must say though, I am excited to get back to Texas, mainly because that's where Christmas is and that's where my new tablet is! I'm getting a wacom intuos4 tablet. I hope. We ordered it from Amazon. I can't wait to put it to good use.

Okay, and now, I love Christmas music, don't get me wrong, but the music they have playing is awful and annoying.

So I'm going to plug in my headphones and suffer through a headache and tummy aches.

Merry Christmas!

Could today get any worse...

A New Do

Welp. I've decided that I would go ahead and chop my hair off early. Lately I've just been lazy and haven't wanted to take the time to blow dry my insanely thick hair. Take 30-45 minutes out of my morning/day/night to straighten it. Deal with the bangs constantly falling in my face. Scrunch it until it's a poofy curled mess. So I've just been throwing it up in a ponytail or a bun for the past 2-3 weeks and I feel like it's bleeding into my daily life.

"Say what!?" you ask? Well, have you ever heard that if you think you look reeeaal good one day you're just in a really good mood? Well I think my thing is that since I'm being lazy with my hair, I'm not feeling as good lookin' as I know I can, and just overall feel lazy and uninspired.

Weird concept, I know. But There are some things people (women/girls in general) just worry about the most. How their face looks. How big their boobs look today. How well they're dressed today. For me, it's how good my hair looks. Why? I have no idea. It just is. Now you may say "How can that be? If hair is the thing you're worried about, why are you so lazy with it?" Well. I have no idea.

So tomorrow around 11am I'm going to go hack it all off at the Family Cuts that's only $7.95 or something. They've always done a great job with my hair. The. 2 times I've gone there. So I'm hoping that this time will be no different. I'm kind of nervous because once you chop you hair off...if you don't like it it's not like you can just go *PUH* and grow it right back.

I honestly wish it were already Friday. I get paid. It'll be the weekend. And I'll have one of 3 art projects done. And I get my hair chopped off! I'm really tired of this semester for some reason. It's gone by fast...and slow at the same time.

I'm ready to go to Connecticut. I really feel like I need to escape Texas for a bit, and let me tell you. I LOVE Texas, but in Texas is school. The pressure of a job. A routine of life. In Connecticut I don't have to worry about an art project that's due when I return next semester (I don't have one. This is just an example). I don't have to wake up at 4:30am MWF to go to work. I don't have to stare at my pantry and wonder what I'm going to eat. It will be a nice release. Except it'll probably be cold. I hate the cold. Now, if there's snow on the ground okay. I can bear it because dude. It's snow! We won't be in CT for as long as I would like because we're staying at a hotel this time. My grandma is still sorta getting over her bone cancer (mentally. The cancer is all gone) and it would be sort of stressful on her if we were staying with her for 5 days.

But enough babble. Time to finish an art project!

I haven't taken one step outside my dorm room today.

Not even out into the hallway.

I feel awful. Yesterday, around 4 I had an awful headache so I thought it might be because I needed some caffeine so I went to sonic and got me a large dr pepper for 89 cents! Then I decided I was hungry. I didn't have lunch yesterday. So I went to wendys and got 10 chicken nuggets. I was able to eat 7 of them. Hours went by and I just kept feeling worse and started developing nausea. I went to bed around 8 and woke up still feeling wretched so I decided I'd take the entire day off. I've done nothing productive except take a shower and eat (not very much because my stomach still isn't happy). I do hope I'll be feeling 100% tomorrow or hopefully tonight.

I'm feeling very...ideative. I know that isn't a word, but I've mixed idea and creative together. Neat, eh? Well, one of my 5 strengths or attributes whathaveyou is 'futuristic'. Can't let that quality down now, can I?

PS: Look what I drew :]
