How to Make Your Own Herbal Shampoo ↘

One of the things that made me stop caring about my weight was realizing that I’m the body type in all the classic paintings.

I planned on using this blog as a journal. Obviously, that hasn’t worked out too well. And I’ve taken so many photos that I hardly need to write anything. I don’t need to write down what I do every single day, because I’m either going to class, doing homework, or sitting at home not doing much of anything. I don’t get out much, I don’t talk much. I live with people that I would consider friends. Don’t get me wrong, I like them and we get along fine, but I don’t really “connect” with anyone. Small talk can only go so far. I am shy and always will be. I’ve always said that it takes a year for me to be completely comfortable around someone. I have 5 months. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if I leave without one single true friend. Everyone else will stay in contact with each other; I will disappear. I probably won’t know anyone from England either. I don’t talk to people in my classes except for the people I already know (doesn’t help that the international students were housed away from all the local students). I never thought I had trouble making new friends until now. I can’t get along with girls and I don’t want to make friends with guys because they might take it the wrong way.
I have also realized that I am extremely unhappy at MSU. Not a new realization, just an old one that I chose to ignore because it was easier to ignore than to do something about it. I need to get out. I have found a way to move once I am back in America. Money is my main concern. If I have to take a semester off to get myself where I need to be, then so be it.

Figured it would be cheap to get my ears pierced. Would have been £22. So I did this myself, for £1. There was little pain and no bleeding, so I’d say I did a pretty darn good job.
