Makeup update: I went to MAC yesterday and made a friend. I cant remember her name though. Dang. But I’ll know her when I see her again. I basically explained my challenges and shortcomings. She laughed then said come with me. YES!!! So she went through, step by step, on what colors go where, the best way to get them on, and some pointers that made sense. I was a bit apprehensive because I’ve been told this stuff before. I just don’t retain it well. Then she said something that clicked. She said you have to practice this.
Seems minor, but not really. I learned how to play the piano when I was really young. Took lessons for years. I loved lessons, I loved playing music. I HATED practicing. And as much as I hated practicing, I did it. Every day for an hour minimum, except Sundays. Which is why I can still play to this very day. Because I practiced. So uh… I’m gonna look like a clown for awhile, but I’m determined to practice.
Party update: I was invited to a reggae lounge/club last weekend. I didn’t go. Partially because I was tired, but a lot of it was because I went through that whole I-wanna-go-but-I-don’t-really-wanna-go thing. Well I was invited to a birthday dinner yesterday. And yeah, I went through it again, but I went. And I had a decent time. I met new people, laughed a ton, and discovered a new kind of vodka. Yay! Still gotta take baby steps though. There’s a party next weekend. 🙂 & 😦
