LC Braid FAIL.

I am so not skilled in doing my hair all pretty. I need a live-in hair dresser, and eyebrow waxer. That would be amazing. I can't do anything with my eyebrows either, and I swear they grow so darn fast!

I basically can put my hair in a messy bun, make it curly using gel, mousse, and hair spray(which I don't like doing because it's far too much product and it goes all stiff and wet looking, which only confuses the residents at my placement), and I can blow-dry and straighten it. I wish I could have hippy hair that just naturally looks amazing without any styling. You know, the long hair with the loose wavy curls in it. I'm growing my hair out right now, maybe it will magically turn into hippy hair when its long!

I used a new product in my hair today, and so far I'm liking it. It's Bb Bumble and Bumble, some sort of curling lotion or something and its quite nice. My hair is so soft and light feeling while still being curly. I borrowed my moms and I might have to purchase some of my own after I get a job this summer when this semester of university is over, among all the other things on my ever-growing shopping list.

To Clarify...

I am NOT having a baby!
The pictures from my last post were just of me bloated from IBS.
I've been noticing that certain foods cause this reaction, so far:
-red meat
-nuts(as seen in the pics)
-cheese or dairy(I think, not quite certain yet)

I have a secret....

A Very Special Piscean

I found this today on Wishcake's twitter and I thought I would try it. My description is SO accurate its scary. Apparently I'm a true-blue Pisces!

Emily will never grow up, and nor would we ever want her to. It is Emily's ability to be innocently fun-loving and childlike that makes her so endearing. Emily last name is extremely clever and sophisticated. There is, after all, a very big difference between being childlike and being childish. Emily is open minded, unselfish and able somehow to approach each new day with a spirit of real, fresh inspiration. That explains why Emily enjoys life so much and it also explains why other people, looking at Emily's life from a distance, cannot understand why she enjoys it so much. Those of us who know and love Emily find her enigmatic, mysterious or even downright baffling. We can't help liking her, but nor can we quite manage to work out where she is at, where she is coming from, what she is up to or what she is in to. Emily's tastes and preferences are what some people would call eclectic, others would term unusual and most folk would classify as 'just plain weird.' Emily, though, is consistent in her inconsistency. There is method to her madness. Emily is interested in - even fascinated by - so many strange, different topics and subjects because Emily is such a natural experimenter.

Emily doesn't need to travel the world in search of variety. Emily can wake up one morning feeling quite sure that she is one particular kind of person. By the afternoon she will be someone else. Her personality will not change, her loyalty will not waver but her mood will evolve allowing her to explore, enthusiastically, ways of behaviour which only a few hours ago seemed unattractive. Thus Emily last name creates a world in which there is constant variety and excitement. Boring people, who like to follow life's laws to the letter and stick rigidly to one fixed plan find Emily hard to handle or even to relate to. People with a sense of adventure, a sense of imagination and, most importantly of all a sense of humour, cannot get enough of Emily's company.
Here is the website its from - website.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!

My long lost blog...

Geeze Luigi I'm bad at blogging! I read blogs and twitters daily, if I have time. But I appear to be super lazy about writing a blog post. I'm going to try to be better at this! Here's an update on things I've been up to.

School. Its been very busy and frustrating. Murphy's Law continues, I don't understand why. But every little thing that can, has gone wrong. Or at least been a huge pain. This week coming up is mid-term week so its extra hectic. I commute two hours to school and just over an hour to clinical for four days each week and its getting really tiring on me. I don't have anyone to commute with, so its expensive and exhausting. Also, OSAP angers me beyond words, only tears. I hate you OSAP.


The boyfriend and I have decided to move in together. Which means I'm moving over an hour away to the country! I'm so excited for this. I think it will be great for me to have a new beginning in a fresh town and learning all about how they do things up there. I'm also excited to move out from home. I love my mom so much, and I probably couldn't do anything without her love and support, but I'm so ready to be out on my own!

I've been battling stomach issues for years. I constantly have an upset stomach and is always worse when I'm stressed out or anxious. I have IBS. It got so bad for me since I've started school. Every day I come home and my stomach is so bloated that I look about 7 months pregnant, I'm not even exaggerating one bit. My stomach will be rock hard and hurt so much. Then on top of that I started getting daily, all day, nausea and heartburn. So I finally broke down and asked my doctor for something. She gave me ranitidine, which helped for a bit then all my symptoms came back and now she gave me prevacid, which I think after about a week may actually be working. I am so thankful for this. My stomach has gone almost flat(except for my chub of course) and is pain-free. HALLELUJAH! I seriously will not miss the old ladies from the nursing home at my clinical coming up and rubbing my belly because they think I'm pregnant. Not at all. It is so embarrassing.


I'm about to become an AUNTIE EM for the first time! And I could not be more excited. Hopefully the little one(I know the sex but its a surprise) will be here tonight or tomorrow! Mom and I held a baby shower for her(my SIL) and I think it went well. I took some pics, but of course I'm still attempting to learn my camera and I had it on the wrong setting and didn't adjust it, so they are all grainy. I was mega disappointed. So I only got a few that turned out from my camera, and they are not really of the baby shower at all! My eleven year old cousin came over early because she wanted to help. Yes she is tall, taller than me.

So, these are some of the things that I've been doing. Hopefully I will update and create blog posts much more regularly in the future! Off to have a blissful(really not, I'm doing homework and studying for mid-terms) Saturday night alone watching movies, eating chips and drinking root beer(these things are all true though).
PS. I find posting and moving around pictures so annoying on this thing, it never works the way I want it to, that's why the pics are in weird places, I just couldn't get them to move and gave up. But I thought they were cute. I don't know if its because I have a laptop without a mouse or if I'm not doing it wrong or am just plain bad at it. But I find this blogging thing difficult. I need to take a class or something.
