Assorted Randomness...  
So, the guy at Gloria Jean's Coffee was right...this Dreamcicle stuff is some weird coffee. Like I had an orange creamcicle melted into my coffee and then it somehow changed it's molecular structure. Strange, but not unpleasant, just...odd.

I got a haircut on Friday, and not that anyone I don't see in real life would know this, but it looks very cute. Maybe there will be pictures, maybe not. Tell me if you want to know, though, because then I'll try harder to oblige a request than my own random vanity.

It's funny, how much something like changing my hair can really adjust my self-image, but then again, I've been thinking about that a lot lately. My image of myself has changed a lot over the past two or three years, and this journal documents that pretty well, over time. I'm so much more comfortable with myself, both physically and mentally. I look better, but feel less like I need other people to make that call. I've always been cute...but now, I can try and be sexy too. It's fun. I have friends who help me, a boyfriend who lets me know that I'm special, and a better set of eyes for seeing myself. The fact my skin is so improved boosts me on both levels as well. I feel, really, like I'm starting to grow into myself. Like I'm finding a better fit for my body and mind all the time. It's a good feeling.

Finishing up my Driver's Ed this summer, at long last. Four more classes (one tonight after work will take that down to three), and then the driving lessons. I really gotta work on that. One thing about driving is that I hate it. Freaks the bejesus out of me. But once I practice enough, I'm sure I'll get used to it. That'll really make me feel good too, once I get to driving, knowing that I can do that, go where I want when I want. My mom said once I get my DL, she and my dad will put in to get me a used car to have at school. I can and will do this, far over-due, but better late than never.

I have to buy a pair of decent running shoes if I want to get into that again. I'd like to lose a little of the fatty bits I'm so well-known for ^_~ Dancing around the house til I'm beat is good, but a little more in the exercise routine wouldn't hurt.

I suppose there are more random things I could write about, but I'll save some of them for another time, when I feel the need to be spontaneous.

Over time I grow more and more confident, as well. I saw post pictures! I wanna see the cute hair and if it makes you feel a bit better to know we all think you are adorable, it can't hurt, can it? :)

YES PLEASE!! Pictures of my girly girl!

KISSY SMOOCHES!! I'm sorry I haven't called. I've been working ten hour days and have only had time for sleep and food in between (plus a little Michael here and there).

I miss you, and I'm so glad I have another semester with you. OH BOY! lovey love.

a certified visual of the hair thing...
i can honestly state that she does look very cute w/ the new hairstyle. honestly folks, i see her like every other day. personally i think it makes her look a bit younger, but not in a bad way.

as for driving...
the more often you drive, the more comfortable it'll be.
