Gosh, my life sure has been stressful lately! I started a new job as a lab research assistant, moved, am newly single, and am still taking classes. Aside from the obvious negatives, life it pretty good right now. I try to be an optimistic person, especially during stressful times. So, here’s the optimism: I LOVE my new job! It’s not really a ‘new’ job, but I have a lot more responsibilities, I’m helping with a million different experiments, and I’m actually being paid, which is always a bonus.
I’ve been trying to get aquainted with the new town I’m living in, and what better way to do that (and relieve stress) than shopping? I went to Marshalls the other day and found so many cute items. I resisted and only purchased two things, one of which were these crazy, colorful shorts. These shorts are so comfortable that I feel like I’m wearing PJs! I paired my super colorful shorts with this muted orange top and pink accessories.
I’ve also been trying out all sorts of braided hairstyles lately, and this is one that I’ve worn a couple of times now. I took a small section of hair behind one ear and did a simple three-strand braid. On the other side of my head, I took another small section of hair and did a fish-tail braid. Pull each braid to the opposite side, secure with bobby pins, and voila!
