I'm feeling a bit lost without my regular "Hair Posts". I don't really know what to say. I couldn't even come up with a suitable title for this post!!

I need a new strategy, and I know just the one. This is the one that I always suggest to my friends who are having trouble with coming up with blog posts. Start with the first letter of the alphabet and roll with it. So at least I have the next 26-ish blog posts sorted. Huzzah!!

I feel like I did so much today. I went to school- shocking, I know! Then in my lunch break I did my grocery shopping. I spent way more than I should because of stupid marketing. I have a rewards card with that supermarket and I know it's basically so that the supermarket can keep tabs on who buys what. All I get in return is a lousy 4 cents off petrol!! Anyway, today it was like my personal rewards card had come under scrutiny. Literally EVERYTHING I normally buy was on special, but it was the 'sneaky special' kind. Buy one, get the other one half price. Buy two, get one free. That kind of thing. And I fell for it!

I have a whole heap of new assignments dumped on me from yesterday. Yuck yuck yuck!! I don't think I'll be seeing the light of day for quite some time!! But I'm feeling positive about this. As boy roomie pointed out the other day (thanks to my fabulous wall calendar), only two and a bit months to go. I'm on the home straight!

You can do it! Do you graduate in two and a half months, or just get your summer break?

I'm looking forward to 2 1/2 years more of classes... :(

ALSO-- don't you hate sneaky rewards? That seems to happen to me all the time.

Darn those rewards cards. We have the same kind here where you really don't save anything, but the 4 cents on gas/petrol. I have to go shopping today and hopefully I just stick to what's on my list...hopefully. ;)

haha i alllways fall for those marketing ploys. i even worked in marketing for 2 years and still fall for it.. or i guess it's not falling for it if you know it's happening? but i go for it none the less.

i'm so glad you received the print! thanks for letting me know :)
ah, so for that first photo where my friends and i spelled out the word "summer2011"... you have to set your camera to a longer exposure.. 5 seconds did it for that one.. then you just grab a light (we used our cell phones!) and "paint" in front of the camera in the dark. it takes some trial and error, but it's fun! i wrote a more in depth tutorial about it here.. but for the summer one i just used a point and shoot.. not a fancy camera :)
