I missed you guys.
This month has been kind of crazy! I really just- wow. So much going on, and some of it I can't even really talk about. But here- this is the first outfit I wore to work with my awesome new hair.

I really really loved this outfit so I took a lot of pictures. Also, I was trying something new by not smiling. Sometimes I really hate that in all of my pictures I'm smiling. I think it gives a false happy-go-lucky impression of me. I am not always smiling, and I often admire other bloggers who don't smile as much (ex. the cooler-than-cool expressions that Megan Mae and Bella Q often have, that can be serious or smirking or tough). I'm still kind of smiling, but I'd like to play with not smiling in every freaking photo.
So anyway, I was thinking that May/June's been kind of an amazing month. I've gotten to meet a friend from the other side of the world, see a concert, finished a novel, started talking to an old friend again, met new friends, and started making plans to re-open my etsy shop. I've sewn tons of things, sent probably hundreds of pages of fanfiction to a friend of mine and talked to that same friend about her own writing. I've become involved with another friend's make up art show fashion thing, realized I had two AMAZING best friends, gotten a kick ass hair cut and downloaded a ton of new music. I'm going to Sesame Place with my mister's family on Friday. I've said goodbye to a friend that I'll probably never see again because they are moving far away (and aren't real internet savvy). My boss gave me this amazing necklace that I've been wearing every day. And it hasn't all been happy- there was actually a worrisome incident on a bus the other day that had me running home in order to avoid a panic attack- but even that turned out alright because while I didn't think I was brave or tough, all my friends gathered around me to assure me that I was brave and I handled the situation perfectly. So even the bad has been good. The best part? I finally, after a decade of putting it off (or repeatedly failing), got my learner's permit. I'm learning to drive. And it rocks.
I think that the best part is that I've been working toward my dreams. Something negative snapped and I finally came to a place where I was like, no. No, this needs to happen before I lose it. And even when there is uncertainty, there is hope, and that hope is like a drug. It's amazing.
Anyway, I'm going to go. I'm going to go make things to show you and read your blogs and sometimes even comment. I'm going to go eat dinner, too, and probably write more.
