Wearing a hat today cause my hair got all mussed up during a nap before class. I think sleeping is a vice of mine, but I really don’t know how to stop with the naps.
I WANT THIS BICEP TO GROW.
My tattoo has a childlike drawing on it of the universe, and it says “Universe, I Love You”. It’s a direct copy of a drawing posted by actor Matthew Gray Gubler, whom I used to be obsessed with when I used to watch Criminal Minds all the time. Criminal Minds is embarrassingly enough one of the reasons why I’m in University for Forensic Psychology currently.
Word of advice, folks: NEVER BASE YOUR FUTURE PLANS ON A TV SHOW.
So this morning I jumped in the shower and decided to wash my hair. I have very long and curly hair that reaches midway down my back. However, once its wet the curls straighten out and my hair almost reaches my bum.
So hair is wet, shampooing done and I just need to rinse. I tip my head back and flip my hair over my shoulder ala shampoo adverts everywhere. And feel something brush against the top of my bum. Being the mature and logical gal I am, I came to the one and only possible conclusion.
With a scream a howler monkey would be proud of, boobs flying and looking like some sort of demented mermaid, I attempted to flee the shower stall. And promptly acquired a new skill; the ability to do the splits.
This in itself was a spectacular feat of physics as there isn’t actually enough room in my bathroom for a toddler to do the splits, never-mind a 5'9" half drowned rat. As a result, when my leading foot came into contact with the toilet pedestal my body was launched back along the floor towards the shower. This left me wedged between the toilet and the shower tray.
Where I was abruptly bitch-slapped by the shower door.
One trip to A&E later and I have a sprained ankle, a fractured ankle, two broken toes, a beautiful rainbow of bruises in some interesting places and a partridge in a pear tree.
TL, DR: Upon learning that my hair now reaches my bum I; preformed gymnastics worthy of Rio, made the laws of physics my bitch and took a guided tour of the local hospital.
i talk a lot on here about mental health. and try to be an advocate for bringing yourself up. and taking care of your self. but i’m gonna be honest. i’ve been struggling lately. found myself reverting back to old habits. forgetting to eat, skipping the gym, missing classes, or letting my homework go unfinished. even things as simple as taking a shower or washing my hair feel like monumental tasks. but today i woke up. and i went to the gym. i took a shower. i ate, drank some tea, and paid my bills all before i had to go into work. keep pushing. keep pushing because one day it won’t be so hard.
Okay, I’m being a little melodramatic, but I do have some news about You Can’t Plan for Everything.
I feel terrible, but I will not be able to post a new chapter tomorrow/today.
It’s been a crazy couple days for me because school’s started up again and I’m still not registered for any classes besides my 500-level Stats course. D: And I ended up getting my hair done today (it’s a pretty silver colour and I’d totally post pics if anyone cared) so that ate up a bunch of time. I’m not even half-way done writing what I want for the chapter, so it’s almost impossible to finish for when I’d planned without compromising in one area or another.
To make you a little happier, a lot of my writing time was actually taken up with planning (surprising for me, I know). But I think you’ll appreciate the things I’m planning on adding. It should be worth it in the end. (Maybe I’ll give you a teaser tomorrow to tide you over?)
But I would still really would like to apologize. As long as things don’t get crazy, I’m hoping to have it ready for Wed, Jan 11. Just think of it as a replacement Wednesday YOI release. :D
