3 Things Thursday: Weather, Carbs, and Bangs
1. The weather here has been crazy. I'll wake up to it pouring rain, and write off any sort of outdoor running for the next few days. A few hours later it will be sunny, and a little too warm. But, I've already lost that mental focus. That, and it's hard enough to motivate myself to run after work when it's already dark out. My favorite place to run is a hilly trail about 10 minutes from my office. The only lights out there are in the parking lot. So, it's off limits after work until Spring progresses enough. Boo.
2. I always forget how gross I feel after eating straight carbs for breakfast. My body loves protein way more than carbs. My brother (we work together) brought in bagels for the office. I was hungry. Well, sort of. Mostly they just looked really fresh. So I ate one. And now I feel a little ill and spacy. I need a good slab of meat, man. This is the same reason I can't eat large amounts of sugar without feeling gross I think. Something about my metabolic type? Or is that mumbo jumbo. Anyway, carb coma over here. Good thing it's a slow day.
3. Bangs. My bangs. (She bangs?) I wish I could wave a wand and stop them from growing. I am cheap, so I basically refuse to go to a hair salon and get them trimmed (the friend who gave me bangs lives in Canada, so it would be pretty hard to hit her up for a trim). This means I trim them myself, once they get to that awful "stabbing me in the eyes" length. Don't get me wrong. I love them. They are a great look for me, even if they do get greasy like 10 hours after I was them. Bastards. But, on top of being cheap, I'm also terrible at cutting hair. So, every trim I give myself is kind of awful. Once it grows out (like four days later) it's fine. I think part of the problem is I try to cut straight across, sort of. At least it's always even, and I usually don't chop it too short. But, it's still hard. And, the tips of the hair I'm cutting pretty much always fall in my eyes. Bastards. So, it's time for a bangs trim. Maybe this time I'll try to feather them.
