Sometimes my job feels like King’s Landing…
And ‘m Ned Stark.
And then there’s Sansa. Sansa Stark who named her deadly, killer direwolf Lady. And she trained her to be gentle, and quiet, and sweet and loving. And then what happens? The Baratheons have her killed. So now Sansa is so alone, having lost her family, her home and her Lady. But she is the exact opposite of what her father said would happen to wolves who end up alone. Ned Stark said that the only way they could survive was to stick together, and that was never an option. Robb had their mother. Rickon and Bran had Winterfell and then each other. Jon is on the wall, with his brothers, and then across it with Ygritte, then back to the wall. Arya had Gendry, and is still linked to Nymeria. But Sansa has absolutely no one who is her family. So she takes the strength and poise of a lady, and turns it into something as deadly and defensive as a direwolf’s fangs and claws. She knows that she is alone, and that no one is coming for her, so she adapts. She plays the game, she keeps her mouth shut, she stays alive.
Because the best way to hide a wolf, to keep people feeling safe, is to make them think it’s just a well trained dog.” —echrai (via eeshtar)
you want the wing of your eyeliner so sharp they could kill a man
Sunday is pretty much my least favorite day of the week—I get out of work really early, and Josh gets out of work really late. Most of the stores near me are closed on Sundays too, so its pretty much a go home and browse the internet and watch Netflix day automatically.
Yesterday I got my eyebrows threaded after pushing it off for 4months. I wanted to have as much hair to work with so she could really shape them into an arch— and this time it finally worked out perfectly. I fell as a child and scarred the skin under my eyebrow so that particular one won’t ever have a natural arch, but she got them to be so clean and angled right that with just a little bit of a brow pencil I can create the arches I want :)
I’m trying to work towards looking more professional and my age. When I had pink hair, I had considered possibly going into white eventually and then maybe yellow and orange but once I got hired at the theater and had to go back to a natural color, I realized I was done with unnatural colors. I’ve mentioned it before, but I really do want my hair to be 100% healthy, natural, and long for my wedding and I’m on the right track with that.
Theres about 3-4 inches of solid roots growing in the under layers of my hair, and the top roots blend really nicely with the last time I dyed my hair. I can wash it and just go to sleep without it being a mess now, which because of my extensive dying history [which includes a lot of bleaching, red dye, black dye, etc—not just a couple high lights or one shade darker/lighter], it would need to be styled right after a shower to look nice.
I’m definitely doing another kertain when I’m back in Jersey—I swear by those, they are the best conditioning treatments I’ve ever had and they make my hair feel like its never been dyed before.
But yeah—back to the professional goal. I loved playing with colors—in my hair, makeup, etc but I want to eventually have more of that “sexy-classy” higher end look. Another thing I’m going to start practicing is face makeup contouring to learn how to do defined cheek bones and natural “glow” looks.
I don’t want to look like a teenager anymore is what I’m basically saying, at least not every day. I do plan on playing with clip in extensions and maybe even high quality wigs for events/photos/etc, but on an every day basis i want to have natural nice hair, defined/bold professional makeup looks, and in time a more professional/current wardrobe. My tattoos will be the only “alternative” look I need to have, as I want to be more of a mature alternative look than again, a teenager one.
Anyways, last night we got to play cards against humanity and turn it into a bit of a drinking game. It was a lot of fun, and that game is hilarious! Definitely going to play it a lot more often.
Tomorrow we’re either going to see This is the End or The Internship, haven’t decided which one yet. Might be This is the End and eventually I’ll see The Internship by myself since Josh is less interested in that one and I like having movies I can watch on my own time anyways. We save all the stuff we want to both watch to watch together >:) When we’re apart, I’m going to DVR our shows as they air and wait til he gets home so we can watch them at the same time and skype or phone webcam chat while watching.
Well I ordered some food, should be here in a few—time to decide what to watch on Netflix ^_^
