I sleep with a chair in front of the door...
So this whole living alone thing is scary. SCARY. I don't go to sleep until I have closed all the doors and locked the ones that have a lock and put chairs in front of the doors that do not have locks. Is that sad? Maybe. But hey, at least I won't get kidnapped!
So here's the buzz in the life of A. Heroux:
I discovered this thing called Breyer's Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream.
And here is how I feel about it: I LOVE IT. Just so I can make your mouth water a little to illustrate my point, here is a picture of this divine gift from the heavens.
Oh my GOODNESS it is just simply so delicious.
Here is a gorgeous music video that I stumbled upon. And it's a song by two of my favorite musicians! Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Not to mention that the song itself is beautiful. Just take a minute to take it all in. It's so simple and SO gorgeous!
Hmmm what else? Well, work is turning out to be fun. :) There is a cute boy who works with me. Who shall remain nameless for the time being, but he is adorable. :) And he makes me smile.
I have rediscovered the simple pleasure that is dancing in one's underwear to loud music. I haven't done that enough in my life and I am beginning to regret it. Because it lets out all the negative toxic feelings and makes room for pure joy. Ahh I just love it. For any of you readers who have never done this: I highly recommend it. It does wonders for stress reduction.
OH MY GOODNESS how could I forget?!
I am getting my hair cut. And when I say cut, I mean CUT.
I am getting it all chopped off! Like a "pixie" cut. Which I hate that term. It makes me think of the 90's...which I will admit, were not some of our nation's most stylish years. I'm talking fresh, sassy, sexy short hair. Think Emma Watson, Carrey Mulligan, and this lady...whoever she is:
Now, I know what all you skeptics are thinking (MOM and GRANDMA), it is short and a little nuts. Okay it's a LOT nuts. But here's the deal. I have thought this through, I promise I have!
1. I have an oval face shape which, GUESS WHAT, is the face shape that can pull of just about anything. I looked it up. Online.
2. Long hair is just not me. I mean, think about it. Think about my personality. Does really long wavy hair really match? I feel like not.
3. My current hair "style" (or lack thereof) is so excruciatingly boring that I might pass out at any moment from boredom. Honestly. I can't do BEANS with my hair. And it's driving me insane.
4. I would like a style that I can do the same way every day and still have it look spicy and extraordinary. This hairstyle is PRECISELY that. And I love it.
5.This style takes specific maintenance, but it's low-key. Easy to take care of, and, as mentioned earlier, looks extraordinary.
6.For my dumb job, I have to wear a hat every day. I have to work before class every single day, which means HAT HAIR. **shudder shudder shudder**
If I had this haircut, I could easily fix said hat hair with dry shampoo and a teasing comb in about 25 seconds. I just think it's practical.
______________Here's the bottom line:______________
(that's the bottom line)
Guess what, everyone! I am extraordinary! And I think I need hair that matches that. Nope, I KNOW I need hair that matches my extraordinarity.
Simply put, I am getting my hair cut like this, and no one can stop me.
I am sticking it to the man.
Me: "Hello, man. Consider yourself stuck to!"
