I know I've been pretty miserable recently, and for that I really am sorry.
It has been a horribly stressful past few months- and when I was thinking about it (ir)rationally last night, I realised it's been a pretty stressful twelve months. Finishing uni, moving home (and away from some of your closest friends), joining the real world and then changing jobs are all stressful enough. But topped off with a heartbreak, a lorry crashing into you, your car being written off as a result and other little things (broken phone, broken hair dryer, and a soon-to-be-broken laptop), it sometimes feels just a little bit much.
SERIOUSLY 2013. WHAT IS THIS!?
I'm not going to lie, recently I have felt like curling up into a little ball and hiding from the world.
It's true, some lovely things have been happening recently too- lovely new work colleagues, starting this blog (and all you lovely people reading it and chattering to me!), spending time with good friends, and so on.
But as I'm sure you can imagine, I am in dire need of some cheering up. So I did what any normal girl would do- I made a hair appointment.
It would seem that this is my favourite way of dealing with stress- for example, after my Nanna died in my first year of uni, on a whim I had my hair cut from boob-length to just-below-chin-length (fortunately, I still loved it the next day).

This morning, pre haircut. Excuse the awkward face and blurriness.
How is your Saturday?
