Ch-ch-ch-changes! For one, I moved to Oakland, CA into a cute studio apartment in a Victorian built in 1908. I’m excited about having my own place, filling it with things that make me happy, exploring a new city, and delving back into what I loved so much about the SF Bay Area – a vibrant comedy scene. My new job couldn’t be going better. I feel so lucky to finally know what it’s like to have a job that doesn’t feel like a job.
But, hey, finding a place to live means more bills and expenses so I’m still pretty broke. Tip for broke people who want nice salon hair cuts: go on Craigslist and search “Free Haircut.” Seriously. It works. There are a lot of salon students that need hair models, and they will cut your locks for freebies. A shampoo, a precise cut, a blowout, little scalp massage, the whole deal. So that’s change numero dos. I don’t have to wear my hair up constantly because the cut I gave myself was so horrifying. As you can see I’ve been wearing it natural a lot. Any of you curly hair gals have products you swear by?
My early Christmas present from my boyfriend is a smart phone so I’ve finally joined in on the Instagram fun. I’ve been posting sneak peeks of my new place:
Are you on Instagram? Let me know so I can follow you.
Anyway, it’s good to be almost back. One of the things I haven’t yet ordered is internet service, but I hope to get that soon so I can catch up on your lovely blogs.
