I confess that I got a new haircut. I need to dye my hair, but I stopped having my hair stylist do it because I just can’t afford to anymore. I didn’t realize just how expensive school is.
I confess that my life has been all about studying lately… Mostly French, as I’m totally slacking on my Anthropology reading… I’m about a chapter ahead of my French class right now, which is good. I’m learning to study everywhere… Home, school, work-and I’ll even be taking my homework to my friends house this weekend.
I confess that I have realized that doing hours and hours of homework is so much better with a glass of wine… I’ve been on a white kick lately. My two new favorites are Ste. Chapelle Riesling (tastes like honey!) and Alice White Lexia Moscato which has a very strong floral (but not like weird floral-rosey) scent and a nice crisp flavor.
Another good thing about studying French is awesome French-speaking friends who surprise you after class with French food. I came home last night and we had les apèritifs before dinner (pickles, olives, wine, and baguette with pâté on it. Then they whipped up a batch of buckwheat crêpes filled with mushrooms, ham, honey chèvre, and bèshamel sauce. It was so tasty!
I confess that I was trying to plan a trip to Oregon to stay with Mr. Bingo for Fall Break, but it fell through because he has scheduling conflicts the one weekend I’m off, and I was super bummed about it. I miss the Ocean and could use a nice break away from life to see a little bit more of this:
I confess that I just realized this morning that I couldn’t have gone over Fall Break anyway, because I have the fun bus I’m volunteering for that weekend. So then I was faced with trying to decide if I should go over Thanksgiving (my family is out of town but it’s more expensive to travel then) or take one night of French class of another weekend in late October/early November. I’m leaning toward the latter since I’m ahead in French, and allowed to miss 2 days of class… Hmmmmm…. I just really want to go.
On another note… I’m loving Lilypad Lacquer‘s holos. We did a group order to bring them in from Australia, and look how stunning this is-it’s called True Blood. This polish also shown in both my wine bottle pictures above lol. The second picture is the awesome tree my 8 year old goddaughter did on my nail with her nail art pens. Isn’t it great for a kid?
