I honestly haven’t been up to much lately. My holidays went fairly well! We went to my Grandparents for Thanksgiving, X-Mas, and New Year’s Eve. We also went to my In-Laws for Thanksgiving and X-Mas. We got to spend some quality time with family and both had great food! Here’s my sister, Georgi, and I at my Grandma’s for X-Mas.
If you follow my Instagram or have watched my 2 recent YouTube videos, you should know I’ve been reclaiming my childhood and really getting into the Gothic subculture. I was Goth for most of Junior High and sometimes in High School. Dressing in black and being very different (a non-conformist, for lack of a better term), was something that inspired me in my youth. However, I didn’t know until recently there was a whole “Gothic Rock” music genre! So I’ve been really getting into Goth bands as of late, my 2 current favorites being Type O Negative and The Sisters of Mercy. I’ve frequently been listening to the “Goth” station on Pandora trying to increase my music vocabulary. I’ve been buying more black clothes here and there and D. I. Y.ing some of my clothing jackets. Logan is actually studding my new dressy, button-up jacket right now. We tried dying my denim jacket black with Rit Dye but after 2 tries, it’s still only came out a dark purple-blue. We’re going to try studding that one tonight, but I’m sure we won’t finish it since I only bought 100 studs. I am waiting for a lot of band pins I ordered to get here so I can pin them on my denim jacket. I’m going to try to take more outfit of the day pictures on my Instagram once I get both my jackets finished and all my clothing items I bought get here! So be on the lookout!
I also made the decision in December after talking with my Grandma to stop looking for jobs, and instead to follow my dream of going to beauty school. Before I dropped out of high school when I was 17, I planned on going to beauty school right after I graduated. I’ve always had a passion for coloring my hair, and cutting/styling it all crazy. So at the end of this month, I’m going to start the enrollment process and apply for financial aid/grants. The next classes start in August and are a year and a half long. I’m nervous, but also excited.
I also plan on starting back at the gym next week to lose some of the weight I’ve gained at the end of 2015. I’m back on my soda pop addiction which doesn’t help. -_- So maybe in the span on a few months I can lose 30 pounds like I always do once a year. Lol It will probably be hard to lose the weight since I’m really not all that active and I sit at home all day, everyday. Oh well, all we can do is hope for the best!
