I finished reading The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling and am grateful it was absorbing enough to pull me back into the reading habit. I am not grateful about a story line that has been haunting me since I read it. Still recommend, though.
I am trying to love my new/ old shampoo and conditioner (the smoothing one by Aveda) but can’t get over the fact that it’s so expensive, which means I keep alternating it and a cheaper one, which is probably negatively affecting it’s awesomeness. After the wash day, my hair feels dry and brittle the second day, which sucks. Update: I bought a duo from the hippie grocery store that I’m really liking. Even at full price it’d be half the cost of Aveda.
I need a haircut but am chicken. The older I get, the less willing I am to stick with the “oh, well, it’ll grow out” attitude.
I am hooked on House of Cards on Netflix. I love it! I’m not surprised by the corruption, nor do I think it’s that bad. (Is that bad?) Of course this is how it would work in politics. (Clearly I am jaded, but I LOVE the show. Kevin Spacey is fan-f*cking-tastic.)
I would like to discuss that Tiger Mother book at some point. I finally read it and it’s influenced my thoughts about praise and standards. Will I ever be like her? No, but I also didn’t think she was as hateful as I read in reviews. Anyone else interested in this? It’ll be a frank discussion and I’d like us to not throw things (words) at each other.
