Funny how many of my posts start like that.
I think when you are studying via correspondence, using blog becomes lowest on the list of things to do..
Maybe just above housework.
I have fully plunged into the semester doing two papers to start. (the names are the title of this post.)
I am doing my first year psychology paper, which is awesome. It's like when I found photography. I just knew it was for me.
And I am also struggling along with a communications in science paper.
It's all about academic writing and punctuation and evaluation.
For someone who thrived on the creative and majorly ignored the rules of writing, I am struggling to say the least.
I think this generation must be in trouble.
I bet 30 years ago they didn't still have to teach punctuation to undergrads.
We have forgotten how to use the semi-colon (did we ever actually USE that?!!)
So, I have an essay due in two weeks, a chapter to read in psych that I will be tested on (by the way, a chapter isn't like a normal enjoyable book. It's about 50 pages of INTENSITY, and you have to know it ALL).
In other news, I dyed my hair back to blonde.
It was always going to happen.
It took a weekend, and about 12 bottles of product, but I feel like me again.
I'm so glad I got to trial brunette, but it's just not for me.
This is a little picture story of the process:
From blonde to brown and back again.
|Before it all began.|
|Fringe cut. Check.|
|Hazelnut colour filler. (So hair doesn't turn green after black goes in.)|
|Hair dried. This is the point where I should have left it. ....|
|In goes jet black (read:Asian look) dye.|
|Brown dye after removal of black dye (no supporting photo. it was a bad night. )|
At this stage we are up to product (dye) number 4.
|This was the intended look..|
|Coming to terms with it after a couple of days...weeks maybe.|
|Product number 5. Dye removal again. (It didn't quite work.)|
|But bleach does......|
|The night of the ginga. Actually found this fun... might look into it as a colour option one day.|
|yellow blonde again! This would equal about product number 9 as there were toners involved also|
|golden blonde after toning with another ash blonde.|
Not that you can tell.
|Went and saw the students at the hair salon in the facility where James studies, and they put back my white blonde highlights....|
Blonde Meg again!
