For now I’ve started posting everything on my main blog,
blackchantilly. Maintaining five different blogs and not knowing where to post certain things was obnoxious.
Maybe I’ll go back to posting everything separately, or maybe I’ll keep everything consolidated. I’m not sure yet.
Red, goddamnit. (Although, okay, even I can see the distinct line where it goes pink, but there is red in there.)
…and of course this is the moment where the gold tone I’ve been trying to get rid of for months finally bleaches out.
What dye did you use? I want to say I had good luck with Punky Colors’ poppy red (rose red is pink, pink, pink…but gorgeous). Also, vampire red worked well for the first couple of days, but I’ve mostly had issues with Manic Panic colors fading quickly to something
. All of those experiences were with unbleached hair, though.
Do you ever just stop and think about all the ridiculous bullshit they tried to feed you in high school? You’ll never get a good job without a college degree! Math is important! Extra curricular activities are the only way you’ll make friends! Standardized testing is fair!
1. A college degree makes it way easier to find a desk job, but even that isn’t a guarantee that you’ll get a good job. I have friends with college degrees who are working retail or manual labor. It all depends on your experience and luck. It’s worth noting that crap jobs (like retail or food service) will be harder to get if you do have a degree; if you’re down on your luck and need a waitressing job or something, this will complicate things.
2. I use math at my job literally every day. It helps to learn it if you plan on going into anything science-related, art, design, or if you think you might use statistics somewhere down the line. The way they teach it in school is ineffective, though. Math gets way easier to learn once you’re applying it in your everyday life.
3. No one ever told me that about extracurricular activities. They looked good on my scholarship applications, though. When you’re debt-free a year out of college (assuming you go), you’ll be glad you did extracurriculars and got good grades.
4. Standardized testing is a joke and is ruining our education system.
Maybe I’m a stuffy traditionalist, and maybe I wasn’t cut out for work outside “the system” as much as others, but most of these things worked for me. If that’s not for you then by all means do what works for you, but for many people this “ridiculous bullshit” is the way to go.
