Yes, two sad months between posts. I'm neglectful, what can I say.

So, in the two months and six days since I last posted a few BIG things have happened. First of all, I ended a five and a half year relationship. It did not end well. It was my longest relationship, I think it was his and for a few years I thought we were going to wind up married one day. Ending it was the smart thing to do, but it still sucked. However, I really leaned on my close circle of friends for the first time in a long time and they were so supportive and amazing. It reminded me how fortunate I am to have them.

Relatedly, I started dating again and had one AMAZING date with a great guy and I was so sure it was going to Go Somewhere and Be Something and then he blew me off completely!! I'm still baffled about that for reasons I won't get into here, but I'm taking it pretty well! It was a nice welcome back to the dating world that I hadn't seen since 2004. In all seriousness, it taught me to roll with the punches and not get too invested too quickly. I'm so used to being in a relationship (even one as screwed up as mine was) that casual dating is just not my thing. I need to take a couple lessons from Carrie Bradshaw and company.

In response to the big break up I took a page out of Felicity Porter's book and decided to drastically change my hair. Not cutting it off, no no. I've been working far too long to cut it off. I did however go from a pretty deep brown to a VERY light blonde. In colorist speak I went from a 5 to a 10. It's been a long process involving 3 full highlights, breaking my base color with Goldwell's high-lift blonde series (11P). I still need a few more highlights and then some subtle lowlights for dimension before I'll be satisfied (color perfectionism is a professional hazard!). The only downside is that my ends are FRIED now. I'm going to cut off between two and a half and three inches this week and it KILLS me to think of doing it, but my hair needs it. I love the blonde, I think I want to keep it for at least a year (which is saying something for musical hair color me!). Or I will once I get the color perfect, haha!

So there's a tiny update on what's going on in my life! I only have four months of beauty school left, I know it will FLY by, especially with two of my favorite occasions to break it up -- Halloween season in October and 3-Day season in November! Hope summer was good to all of you as well! I'll catch up with you again soon!
