A Day's Worth of Wasted Make-Up


This post was supposed be called "This Is What I Look Like When I Don't Care" because I took this Saturday off work to give me more time to do assignments and yet, I had to still go to my staff meeting. At 6pm. In the wet and cold. Put on my make-up for a 30 minute meeting. I was beyond annoyed! And to top it off? As soon as I was about to step out my door, I got a phone call informing me that I didn't have to attend this stupid meeting. An utter waste of a day's worth of make up. I think I wouldn't be as annoyed if I was actually at the meeting. GRRrrrrr!! I've lost my essay drive as well!! This is what I WAS SUPPOSED TO WEAR:

I will wear this again tomorrow when I go to work no doubt! Minus the glasses, I don't think my area can handle them. I am real glad I got these specs when I was in NY, I had my doubts but at $4.95 you can't really go wrong! The fourth "put your four fingers in the air to look like a dweeb" picture was my poor attempt of showing off my new nails. Its the same as before but I change the colours to yellow, grey and a magenta shade of purple/pink. I'm not feeling it as much as before :-(

I love M.I.S.S.!! I am super excited because they are going to be redesigning the website and all the interns will be on the contributors page! YAYYY!! We had to write a little bio and send in a head shot picture, so hopefully mine is as good as the others! I hope I don't sound like a total nutter!

In other news: I BOOKED MY CELEBRATION, FINISHING UNIVERSITY, PAT ON MY OWN BACK trip to PORTUGAL! I'm going with my girls from university in May, 2 weeks after (hopefully) successfully completing all our university assignments. Now all I need is to find a good, waterproof mascara - one which works - so that I do not look like a drowned rat in a tan-kini.

Back to doing my essays now!! Well attempt to anyway...we have to make sure we deserve this trip!

Lol i hate it when stuff like that happens, at least they called you before you arrived. I once turned up at a friends house for a dinner party, without knowing it had been cancelled!! your articles are cool, can see you're going places. I wish I could paint my nails interesting colours, but knitting has done some awful things to mine, I've broken 4 in about a week. I need to book a holiday too, I'm thinking either interrailing, Marrakesh or Greece.
