Monthly Recap: May

Standard

Wow! I’m trying to think of everything that happened in May and it was quite a lot! Oh boy….

May 4th, I got the news that the place I work went bankrupt. They filed for chapter 7 and I had one hour to collect my things and get out. Such a weird feeling. I mostly enjoyed my job working in e-commerce, more than any other job I’ve ever had. And letting it go without any control over it was really strange. Since my accident on December 19th, I haven’t been working full time and lately, I’d only been working 12 hours a week, so going from 12 hours to 0 hours wasn’t really a huge adjustment. But it’s strange knowing that I can’t go back. After that, many, many hours of resume creation/editing ensued followed by half hearted job hunting. I wish I was creative and could make something amazing and not have to go to work. I want my home to be my workplace. Sigh…

On a more positive note, with all my free time, May was a huge beauty month for me. I’m not really into dressing up or putting on make up or doing my hair but because I have the time, why not? I have painted and repainted by nails at least once a week. Redyed my hair the pinkest I could possible get it. I bought a curling iron and curled my hair! Took the time to put on make-up more than a couple times. I think I’m liking it more and more. Eeek! In the top left picture, I used Sally Hansen Salon Effects and used the OPI Black Shatter on top of pink and teal polish to achieve the other looks.

As soon as get into Summer, I don’t notice any of these things because being outside is like torture. I go from our semi-cool apartment to the car where I blast the A/C on super-max-mighty coldest of colds and back.

The first week of April, my sister came down to visit to celebrate her 16th birthday, March 27th. She has grown up to be a beautiful girl but to be completely honest, we just don’t get along. I don’t if it’s the 11 year age gap or the opposite personalities but whatever it is, that’s a whole other story. We ran around and did a lot of things like had some amazing Thai food, checked out the Hollywood sign, shopped, watched lots of TV (what else do teenagers do?) and other random things. We also got together with our older brother, DJ, in Montana and did some web chatting. It was a long and exhausting week. From there, the rest of the month flew by…
