All About The Hair

For the last two years or so, a local antique store has been asking me to teach some sort of vintage-themed class.  I was always like "what would I even teach?"  My go-to skills are sewing, drawing, painting, and general design work.  After a few games of bowling and an evening thinking it over, I decided that I should teach basic vintage hair.  I can do a few classes, each one with one particular hairstyle as the focus.

I am not a professional, but I have been doing my hair in vintage styles for the last 5 years or so.

I really haven't had luck with people showing up for stuff, so I hope people show up to classes.

I'll start with Victory Rolls.  If that goes well I can do The Poodle, the Happy Pompadour (Rita Hayworth style), and....I don't know....a loose curl glamour hairstyle or something.

Down A Size

I'm firmly down to a size 8.  I have been for a few weeks.  I just didn't want to jinx it somehow and gain size back.  The terrible thing is that I feel fatter than ever.

I'm going to continue eating keto until the keto supplements I have run out.  After that, I'm going back to paleo.

I'm back in a slump.  I think from lack of socialization.  I have tried to get people to do stuff with me - Saturday morning coffee, game nights, learning the lindy hop, etc.  Everyone is "too busy".  I'm just like -- I have binge-watched 5 seasons of 'True Blood' this week- please do something with me.  I like doing things by myself, but I also enjoy little events like playing board games or something.

I'm still going to do the Saturday morning coffee thing; last time I got 2 chapters read of 'Red Dragon' and I finalized my shopping list.  I am going to start bowling, once my things come in.  I ordered a bowling ball, a bag, and shoes.  I'll go to the cafe once a week and I'll go bowling once a week.

I have concocted a new workout regime.  I'm going to start it Monday.

I'm so tired of having no one to do anything with.  I don't make friends easily.  I can't wait to become engrossed in a new writing project.  Come on creative mind....please work quickly!
