Back to Square One
Today I looked through my bookshelf. I hate doing that when it’s a bit of a mess. I found these old diaries, unused. I refused to use them because the notepaper and pages were far too pretty. I have bought many notebooks in my lifetime, many of which I didn’t like to use, simply because the paper was so nice.
Now I have a use for them. Since I lost my phone, I figured I’d organise myself the old-school way.
My favourite subject in primary school was Handwriting. My teacher told me that wasn’t a subject, but I didn’t care. The same way people argue about whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable (don’t get me started). I loved to write, and I actually cared about how neat my handwriting was and took great pride in it.
I guess I’m happy that I can use these diaries and notebooks and they won’t really go to waste. Books and writing aren’t going away just yet. :)
I find that I am at such a loss having lost my phone (ha, ha, ha). I didn’t think I would rely on it that much but even just little things, like bloody train timetables, I’ll have to print off now since I can’t look at them on my phone anymore. I am thinking of buying a new phone in the future since I may not get my phone back and the police may not catch the thief. It’s hopeless, I know, but it’s not impossible, which is why I am still hoping for something good to come out of it. I have learned that while I totally have the right to complain, it won’t always help… and yes, I can live without my phone. I know I’m going to keep whining about having lost it, and dreaming of punching the nimrod who stole it, but I think my mission now is to prove that I can live without it. Well, of course, I’ll still have the spare phone I’m now using, but losing my phone has not made me insane.
I curled my hair yesterday, though now it’s not really curly, but wavy. I used a curling iron. In the past I used to braid my hair and leave it overnight while it was damp. In the morning I’d take out the braids and have some nice curls. After a few hours they would have gone frizzy. :( Oh well, I’m glad that now using a curling iron helps. I don’t know if I look good with wavy hair but when I was younger I really wanted wavy hair. My mum told me that we always want what we can’t have – many of my friends with wavy hair wanted straight hair.
What I don’t understand though, is hair extensions. Why don’t you just grow out your damn hair…? /hmph Some hair extensions are so ugly, they look horrid, and just look painfully obvious. I understand colouring your hair, curling it and styling it, but putting extensions into your hair is something that I think is a little stupid.
No, it really does look obvious. 🙄 I cut my hair a few months ago and now I do wish it was longer, but I’m waiting it out and letting it grow, and reaping the benefits of its current style. He-LLO.
