“Hair brings one’s self-image into focus; it is vanity’s proving ground. Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices.” — Shana Alexander
I feel like Jim Halpert right now. Remember when he gets his hair cut in season four, and Andy Bernard calls him “big haircut” instead of “big tuna?” I just got three inches chopped off of my hair now, and I feel as though I should call myself big haircut.
The new haircut signifies that grown-up me, and I did splurge and get some good Aveda products that help straighten my hair nicely and smoothly without the aid of a straight iron. It’s also allowing me to act more grown up and to take a bigger responsibility for life, and everything that entails….whatever I that means.
I was able to start volunteering with PAVE this week, and it has been life changing. I am so fortunate to have met such fantastic young men and women devoted to the cause and the movement, and I am just excited to get more and more involved while a student at UW. This all goes towards a goal of helping create a PAVE student org, or helping to advise one, wherever I end up working in a year and a half. Big goals, I know, but as I said, it changes lives. It’s been a positive impact on my life lately, and I cannot thank PAVE enough for that. To check out more about PAVE’s national organization go here. The national organization was created by a UW student, and PAVE is in its tenth year of existence…and has come a LONG way!
I was wrong about London. I am not going to study at King’s College or do any of those tours…BECAUSE I AM GOING TO GERMANY INSTEAD! I’m going through SLIS, an am excited to go with my classmates around Germany to see the Gutenberg printing press and Bible. After Germany, I’ll be trotting around Europe, hopefully going to Paris and London for a week or so (total). It’s going to be a fantastic summer excursion, and I am thrilled to be going abroad finally!
I want to count how many pages I’ve had to read this semester, but I’ve been too busy reading to actually sit down and do it. Boo.
