| ||My new job is awesome. It keeps me quite busy enough, especially mentally. It's hard for me to want to read or write outside of work these days. As I learn all there is to know (well, when the learning curve grows less steep, anyway), I will be more inclined to do both. Thinking is hard!|
I did get my hair did. It is now redder than it is brown. I also let the pretty Indian ladies with the gorgeous hair who did the dye job trim and layer my hair as they saw fit. They were sweet and seemed to have good taste, so I let them go to town. I am pleased with the results.
And then I bought makeup, and wear a little bit to work daily. Yesterday I went for my first pedicure in months. I've written about this before - I almost feel like I'm giving in to The Man when I use all these external products to make myself look more societally acceptable/beautiful. I'm still morally torn on it... but I do feel awfully purdy.
On to something serious - I saw an absolutely stunning documentary tonight. It's called Bully, and it's a full feature-length documentary film about children who have been bullied. I strongly recommend it. I cried for two hours pretty much constantly with over 200 of the coolest people in my little twin city town. The local GLBT-friendly center helped convince the movie theater in our podunk town to screen it, and then he helped organize this amazing screening, which actually wound up selling out. They had to turn folks away. The GLBT folks also hosted a little informal discussion afterwards to process what was in the film. I didn't stick around for that. But I did talk with a bunch of people there that I knew, and we're thinking about screening a similar documentary at my church this summer.
Life is beautiful.
