The Wonderful World of Hair Straightening

I have recently been introduced to the world of the flat iron, and from the moment my hair was put in between those two metal plates it was love. Even though my hair is moderately straight as it is, I have gotten so many compliments since I have been getting my hair flat ironed every morning.

The girlfriend who introduced me to the wonderful world of the flat iron is also opening new doors for me in the world of chemical straighteners and relaxers. Earlier this week we picked up a Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Blow Dry Perfector and it did wonders on her naturally curly hair. While I felt the first step smelled like the same chemicals used during a perm (blech), the results are outstanding. After a blowdry and a flat iron her hair is silky, smooth and straight. Even better is she can wear her hair curly if she wants, by letting it air dry instead of blow drying it. While I may not have curls, I've got frizz, so I'm tempted to try it myself. My problem is I'm lazy and don't like to blow dry my hair, so I won't have the same amazing results that she got unless I keep up a routine.

Today while I was at work she picked up a relaxer from a beauty supply. While I am a little weary after hearing horror stories dealing with a relaxer treatment, this is lye free and has organic ingredients. I'll be sure to report the results of that after we finish!

It's been a long day at work, and I'm just ready to crash. Too bad I've got a program to write among many other school related things that need to be taken care of. Meh, I guess I can sleep when I'm dead!

What was your favorite TV show as a child?

Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Ask Me Shit!

Have you ever been fired? If so, why?

I've never been fired. I value my professional live more than giving in to my urge to tell nearly everyone I work with to fuck off.

What was the worst concert you went to?

Everclear. I'm not sure if it was because I was a bit tipsy or if they were just that bad, but every song they played sounded alike. I love them on record, but not live.

What language would you like to learn how to speak?

I've always wanted to learn to speak Gaelic, mainly because of my Irish blood. I know the phrases that most Irish Americans know and shout drunkenly on St. Patrick's Day (Erin go braugh!), but I'd love to be able to speak it conversationally.

Starting Again

I've moved from my old blog (which I don't feel any connection to anymore) to this new one. I can't guarantee I'll be the best blogger in the world with the limited time I have, though I feel the need to chronicle the things I encounter in my every day life (from the mundane to the ridiculous).

Here's a bit about myself:

- I am a full time college student studying Computer Information and Technology. I want to be a programmer!

- I work nearly full time at a tobacco shop.

- If you can't tell by my background, I love the GazettE.

- I knit and sew.

- I love cats, but one day I want a Boxer puppy.

- I've studied Mandarin Chinese in school, and I'm currently studying Japanese (once again).

- I love to clean and watch cartoons.

- I collect books and cigarette packs from other countries.

That's all I really feel the need to reveal about myself!

I hope that I won't get to the point that I hate this blog like I did the other one. It just doesn't make me feel good anymore.

Here's to new starts!
