You know what I think is funny about blogs getting "quiet?" That blogs get "quiet" when life gets crazy.
My semester is drawing to a close and I'm being slammed with final projects, group presentations, papers, and research. Oye. Just a few weeks left! Then I'm off to Hawaii on what was supposed to be a friend trip, but has turned into a solo trip. I'm trying really hard to think positively about that, focusing on all the warm sun shine I can soak up on the beach, how many blogs I can read, and how good it will feel to just do nothing for a while. I'm staying with a good friend, but he'll be working a lot of the time, and my travel companion bailed. Any suggestions on traveling alone?
And hey -- I got braids on my head and bangs on my face! As evident in the ENORMOUS photo of me above... I'd been contemplating bangs for a few days and just took the plunge. I rarely get my hair cut, and every time I do, I change it pretty drastically. Normally I grow it reeeeeally long and then cut it all off. The bangs have taken some getting used to, but I like 'em. They'll be around for a bit, I think. I like when old trends get trendy again. Second-grade me would be so hip with my stirrup pants (leggings) and heavy bangs...
In other news, I feel like I'm stuck in a creative dry spell. Of course that may be my negative self-talk too. Oops! But it seems like I'll have a giant whirlwind of ideas, work on those for a few months, and then I've got NOTHIN'! What do you do when you're feeling uninspired?
