Hey everybody! I've been meaning to blog lately, but I keep finding things to distract me (don't act like it doesn't happen to you). Anyway, I have lots of fun stuff to share! First off, my birthday was yesterday and my present to me was dye-ing my hair. What color you ask?? Oh why, a subtle pink of course. Tomorrow I'm getting it cut- which I am super stoked for (thinking about a modern take on a 1920s flapper bob, maybe). I'm pretty scared to cut my hair even shorter, but I really want to, AND my hair grows so fast it's really not a big deal. Besides, I've been itching for something drastic in my life, because *cue sarcasm* moving four hours away, quitting Old Navy, pink hair, etc. is not drastic enough for me, haha.
So usually my birthdays aren't amazing, but I am so grateful for the last two years (because almost nothing went wrong!). This year was definitely my fav though. The only thing that could've been better was seeing one of my best friends, and a few other friends, but let's not harp on the bad!! The beginning of the day was a bit stressful, because my hair appointment took a bit longer than planned. But once I got to the antique mall, all my worries went away (minus the fact that we don't have air conditioning right now and it was about 100 degrees). A small group of friends hung out with me almost the whole day- I don't know how the deal with me, ahahaha, and I saw some lovely faces pop in as well. We just chilled at the antique mall until closing, and then headed to my house.
Once we got home we feasted on homemade enchiladas, fajitas, and gluten-free cupcakes (don't know if I've ever mentioned I can't eat wheat products??), attempted to watch Mac Demarco's documentary (the wifi wouldn't cooperate :( ), played Cards Against Humanity, played charades, watched my favorite episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, read from my sister's gift, WOLF: Cub Scout Book (from 1967), and so much more! Basically it was just a perfect day, and I am going to miss my friends SOOOOOOOOOOOO much when I leave for college (which is now less than a week away)! Like, don't get me wrong I'm super stoked for college, but why can't I take all of my best friends and my entire room and my parents and my dog with me????
Growing up is weird.
Alright, now time for my fav part: presents! I didn't take photos of everything, but I really wanted to share my absolute favs. Cass made me a Tenenbaum flag, got me a Donny Pop Figure, and the movie, BAND OF OUTSIDERS (which I have been wanting foreverrrrrrrrrr)!
My sister got me this AMAZING purse, and a super cool boy scout handbook from the 60s.
Last, but not least, my parents got me a new ~portable~ record player and some groovy shoes. Ugh, I am so grateful for my friends and family!!
So I saw Guardians of the Galaxy on Saturday (and am going to see it again tomorrow whatevs), and oh my good lord jesus, was that movie amazing orrrr???? No, it was just amazing, okay. I've always loved the Marvel films, but this one really out-did itself. And who knew I could love a tree so much??? Anyways, before I really start gushing and begin to bore all of you, I will just leave you cool kitties with this playlist I made of all of the rad tunes featured in the movie!
