Day 8: One Braid Back

As you may have gathered I have no idea what to call this hair style. After watching The Hills today, I should probably call it the ‘Lauren Conrad' (I really enjoy that someone took a photo of her while she is in the airport handing over her ticket. HOW EXCITING!!! I MUST TAKE A PICTURE!! Haha). I can see why she wears it so often aka all the time. It’s simple but it looks good. It’s a change from simply wearing your hair down as I usually do every day. Plus, it keeps the hair out of your face (from one side anyway). PS Bonus pictures of my bedroom door AND the front door!!

In other news, I PASSED MY TEST!!!!!!!!!!!! Such good news. They were handed out alphabetically and I was first and I literally stared at my exam with the pass mark on it for about two minutes before opening it because I could not believe that I had passed! In my last blog post when I was all “You guys, I really think I failed" I wasn’t looking for sympathy- I truly and honestly thought I had failed. For this test, the teacher said that it’s not so much how many marks you get, more that you can show that you are proficient in the subject. I guess I am proficient because I had a go, got some wrong but got some right. I still can’t believe I passed. That fear when I opened my exam paper and couldn’t answer anything will hopefully drive me to study harder for my next exam.

Also I did not get carded whilst buying a bottle of wine today. Normally I do. I must appear to members of authority as if I were a 15 year old girl instead of the 25 year old young lady I am. I always get carded for everything. Today whilst wearing my Kermit the Frog t-shirt over my purple long sleeved shirt I must have looked really mature. Although maybe 15 year olds don’t buy wine?

I really haven’t been doing so great recently (not sure if you could tell or not!) and I wrote to my mum and told her how I had been feeling which is a big deal because usually I would rather suffer extreme torture than talk about my feelings- at least in real life anyway, it's so much easier in blog form :) Well she drove to come and see me and we had a chat and I feel so much better now. She drove up in peak traffic times too! Two hours, instead of one hour. I love my mum and am so grateful for our relationship.

I'm so glad you passed your test. That's fantastic. :)

The side plait things looks great, too - simple and a little unique.

Your hair posts are seriously inspiring! I wish I invested more time into my hair!

And I'm sorry you've not been feeling on top of the world, but I'm so glad you got to spend time with your Mum. Mums are the BEST.

I get carded all the time, too. Someone asked if I was old enough to sit in the exit row on the airplane-- for which you must be 15 years old. I'm almost 24. It's ridiculous. Oh well, I guess better than looking really old?

And I hear you with not feeling the best. I've been feeling a bit homesick since moving/lots of stress this summer so far, and I'm actually heading up to visit my mom tonight!!!

Glad your mom cheered you up!!! Hope you get to feeling better soon!
