As you may or may not know, I ended up being an RA Alternate. I am still desperately hoping that an RA will drop out and I'll get called in to take their position. One thing I'm not sure of, though, is if I am automatically considered first to be an RA for my junior year, by being an alternate for my sophomore year. I hope so.

Sooo, On Wednesday morning, I got a perm! AAAAH! I know, the word 'perm' conjures up visions of old ladies with blue hair, but I had just gotten tired of my long, straight hair, and it was time for a change. And what better way to celebrate a new 'do than to get all dressed up and take pictures?
Apparently there is something really fascinating over there. :) I lurrrrve my curly hair! In the pictures, it's brushed out into fluffy waves, and if I just comb it while it's wet, it's in a lot of loose spiral curls. I don't know how many people who read this are in the Honesdale area, but if you are, I got my perm at Apple Day Spa, with Gretchen. It took abut three and a half hours to do, and all the girls who work there were really friendly and it was a lot of fun.
In other beauty news, I have finally, finally discovered what works for my skin. And it makes perfect sense. Goat milk soap! I'm allergic to cow's milk, so I drink goats' milk (from my very own goat, milked by my dad) and whenever I'm home and drinking a lot of goats' milk, my skin gets very soft and clear. The soap I'm using is Canus Fragrance Free Goat's Milk Soap, found at http://canusgoatsmilk.com/eng/index.php/Bar-Soap/canus-original-bar-soaps.html . It leaves my skin feeling clean, but not tight, and while it says frangrance-free, the soap has a slightly creamy scent. I've been using a bar of goat's milk sop at school and then this soap at home for a total of about two weeks. I'll definitely continue to use this, it's working out very well. Yay! You can purchase it for $2.29 at CVS.
Spring always makes me want to run around in sweet, flouncy clothing, especially dresses. Some of the cutest I've seen are at http://necessityisthemother.etsy.com . The shop sells adorable pinafore-style jumpers and skirts. Here are my two favorites! I want to learn to ride a bike just so I can wear this jumper while carrying flowers in a basket on the front of a pastel yellow bicycle.
This is the cutest (and least trendy) way that I've seen to wear the buff-check that's all over the place right now, for those of us who wore it first! :)
Phew. That is enough for one post. More to follow!
