Oh hey Jessica where were you yesterday? Well, you noticed there wasn't a blog post so I guess I owe you an explanation - and let me tell you, the reason contains a very unflattering photo of my face (but a very flattering new hair cut and color).
On Tuesday night I bit my lip...and by bit I mean at first I accidentally bit it and then I gnawed on it and then something happened...
At first I thought oh well i just bit the part of my lip that is the outer bit. Well, that was a lie. I lied to myself in order to calm my anxiety leg shake, but in reality I had done something to my lip that caused it to swell. This swelling wasn't "oh my lip is a bit puffy" it was more like OH MY LORD MY LIP IS RESEMBLING THE HUNCH BACK OF NOTRE DAME!
Yeah, that may sound like I'm overreacting, but here we go, here's the very unflattering photo of my face (in my opinion this photo is worse than the photo of me during my sleep study):
I think the photo of my mouth open really allows you to get the full extent of how gross it is. My lip couldn't even swell symmetrically. If it had swollen completely across my lip it would just look like I had a collegen injection - people would totally pay me to bite their lip and make them look like Angelina Jolie (maybe).
Now the one thing I did do yesterday is go get my hurr did. Normally I wouldn't have gone out, but I already moved my appointment to yesterday after having a business meeting on my original appointment day. My hair couldn't have taken another 2 weeks without getting something done to it. My roots were completely grown in and my ends were splitting (which is to be expected since the ends are probably now 1.5 - 2 years old).
Laura (my fabbbbulous stylist) and I decided on blunt layers with a bit of face framing along with red-brown all over color and a few lovely teal streaks.
My hair has gotten so ridiculously long. I love it. The last time I had hair this long was either early elementary school or pre-k. I normally keep my hair about shoulder length, but the long it is the more fun hairstyles and braids I can try. So, I believe I'm going to be keeping it long for a while. Plus a ton of my friends say they like it (but my mom likes it shoulder length and blonde, sorry mom).
The last little note for today is that a few weeks ago I finallllly (after 2 years) submitted my reentry application to my college! I'm so excited. Yes, I haven't been "officially" let back in, but there should be no reason for them to say no. I'm uber excited to get back to learnin' and just being college-y.
I have no idea what I'm going to talk about tomorrow, but who knows, it could be that my lip is more swollen...or that I don't know..just come back...please?
