Bad hair day? Just stick a hat on it! By now I'm so used to having teased hair that it's a little bit unsettling to see myself without it. How on earth will I cope when I go back to black hair?! Because I've resigned myself to the fact that, for the sake of maturity, employability, and all that other silliness, once I graduate uni, I can't have blue hair anymore. But this means I've still got a good year and a half left to revel in the blue-ness, and I suppose by that time, a six-year run of crazy-colored hair wouldn't be such a shabby addition to my list of accomplishments. :D

The uni semester's nearly over, and that means a complete overload of tests coming up very very soon! I have my politics final and four (!) French tests in the next three weeks. I've prepared myself for the stress because once it's done, I'll have nearly two months of holidays!

The title of the post is a lyric from Blue October's "For My Brother," one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. I've been thinking about getting a tattoo as an end-of-semester present to myself, of the full line, Believe you can shine when you're silver and I promise you gold, in three lines of tiny text on the inside of my wrist. I've wanted a tattoo since I was 13, but it's such a big commitment, and I'm indecisive to a fault, so I guess I'll have to get back to you on it. :)
