DYK...

I miss our chat thread?

I thought I'd start it up again.  :)

I think I have hoarding tendencies, lol. I stocked up on baking supplies during all the Christmas specials. I made chocolate Reeses bits cookies yesterday, they have really helped my mood today!

I've made a huge decision... I'm letting my bangs grow out! I tried it once in my early 20s, but it just didn't work. It looks much better with my current haircut. I'm tired of my bangs in my eyes and them growing out so fast. Now I just need to decide if I have enough courage to color my hair myself or go pay the money for highlights.

...I'm also working for another district and for Early Intervention?

...I know what you mean about the bangs in the eyes?

...when I had bangs I always let them get too long, then I would end up trimming them myself and it was all a big mess?

...I'm much better off without them?

That's good to hear that you are better off without your bangs. I'm not able to trim my own either that well, and won't miss trying to do it. Another change I made a couple of months ago was only washing my hair every other day. I'm really loving it, because that's less time I have to spend in the bathroom getting ready. It's also nice to not go through product as fast.

That would be tough to find a good match up in your class. They are probably flexible though schedule wise!

I found a partner.  She's 18 and lives in the dorms.

yeah... I feel old.  ;)

It is good to stock up while everything is on sale!

I've gone a little overboard with canned goods lately.  Thankfully those will fine for a long while.

those cookies sound so good!

bangs can drive you crazy for sure.  I just take scissors to mine when I've had enough (which is going to happen VERY soon!).

I'm coloring my hair at this very moment.  You can do it!!

I wash every other day too?

it is nice to have the extra time?

and I swear that my hair is more well-behaved on that second day?
