I think I may start rotating these personal posts in with Looks From Books and my Book Boyfriend Stealing. So... something personal about me. How about two things?
Something That Makes Me Crazy: 911 calls being released.
Seriously. I hate this. I hate this SO MUCH. To the point that I will most likely wait until it is TOO LATE if I ever need to call 911. I value my privacy. I think a lot about how much of myself I "put out there" and the idea that a recording of me at my most vulnerable, freaking out during an emergency, will be released for public inspection and ridicule.... it makes me sick.
Something That Makes Me Happy: Dressing up.
I'm a big fan of costumes. From theme parties to things like the Great Urban Race where you have to create a team uniform, I think it is so much fun. Yes, costumes are silly, but I love the idea of showing your committment to having a good time. In my experience, people who absolutely refuse to dress up are so concerned with what people will think of them that they never have any fun. Life can be so serious that I think it's important to prioritize having fun.
This was my poor attempt at Ke$ha last Halloween. I totally wish I had gone bigger with the eye make up. And I don't know how you beautiful girls with curls do it... I seriously thought I was going to have to shave my head to get the tangles out. It didn't help that I grabbed the wrong can and had been spraying my hair with moose instead of hairspray.
