Leaving Korea & The Long Learning Road
It's coming up on 8 days shy of the day I left for Korea, one year ago. I can't decide if time has gone by slowly or quickly. Maybe a year has flown by, or maybe a year isn't much time at all (which is also kind of scary). So now I've shipped my things home...

7 Day Hair Challenge: Day 1
This was today's hairdo, and so it went like this... First I washed my hair last night, and slept with a soft headband on and my hair in a bun so that it would dry rather flat and smooth. Then I added a hell of a lot of gel, especially to the bangs and edge...

7 Day Hair Challenge
It is a rather lazy, frizzy day in the hair world here. Okay so, now that I am on vacation for the next 2 weeks, I wanted to give myself some kind of project or challenge. It occurred to me that I have been not tending to my hair too much lately, so I thoug...
