My grandma randomly surprised me by following through with a promise! She bought some storage, finally!
It's apparently some kind of TV armoire though. Not only do I not have a TV, but I already have a table for a TV. So, quick thinking, and I realized I could turn the TV area into a nice shelving space! Finally, a place to put things away~! +1 for me~~!!!
Besides that, last Saturday marked exactly 4 weeks until my debut. I've learned a bit more with my makeup, though I've had to slow down, because my skin has been misbehaving sporadically. It's a little annoying. I think it's the sudden weather shift. It went from nice, 50°F weather to 90°F!! We're in the north, that's not how it's supposed to work! No, wait, that's not true. It's Illinois, we just had a huge snowstorm that brought in 3 feet of snow and then it all melted away just the next week. 50 to 90 is nothing.
Also, Saturday, I went to one of my mom's modelling shows~! Yes, my mom is a model, not a super famous one, of course, and she does it as a hobby along side her real job as a legal secretary, but she's a model. I forgot to bring my camera.... I wish I had, she looked so stunning!
Positive thinking has really done a number on me. Even things that used to get to me don't so much, and I find I'm a lot less stressed. It did, however, almost get me to cut my own bangs. Fortunately, I couldn't quite envision how I would look in a nice blunt cut. Gotta save up, head to a college for some work or something. Cut, color, highlights.
Er, I'm off topic...
It's really helping me a lot. I feel hopeful again, something I've needed. Started sending out my resume to receptionist jobs again, even though I originally gave up because I didn't think anyone out there would hire someone without office experience. Well, there must be someone, right? I'm not a star, I'm a sidekick! I prefer the background to the spotlight. (I know, ironic given my choice of fashion is so flashy....)
Anyway, I've got a lot of work to do, moving things out of my room temporarily so that it will be easier to move the furniture in my room. I wish I was given the chance to see what grandma bought me, and I'm almost positive she actually bought it for herself in hopes that I would hate it and she would get to have it, but still, for once she kept her promise, so I guess I have to let it go. It'll be a good, long while before I can consider her reliable and trust her again, but it's a start! I mean, she's only promised me shelving for... 2 years now, lol.
By the way, has anyone seen June's Ageha? It's all model profiles and hairstyles, so you know. I'd do a review, but I don't know if anyone reads those things, lol.
