A long time gone...

Hey there folks! I'm sure everyone has presumed this blog dead, but I assure you, it is not...I've just been overwhelmed over the last several months. Some of the reasons for my hectic life haven't been the most positive, but for the most part, things are good in my life. I am finally about to complete cosmetology school (I had to take some time off for personal/medical reasons and also to visit family) and enter the *gasp* real world. I'm scared and nervous but also very excited to get my career started.

Anyhoo, just for fun I thought I'd post some photos on the many changes my hair has seen throughout the last year or so since some of my friends have asked to see pictures (and I have to admit that I do change my hair on what seems to be a weekly basis :0). What can I say, I'm in the hair/makeup/fashion industry, I have to showcase my creativity somehow! Hope you enjoy!

See you all around soon...

D'var Torah??

Help! I have to give the D'var Torah for Reform Services at Hillel Friday evening...I didn't realize what I was getting myself into, I got an e-mail and thought they needed song leaders (which I have done before and am comfortable with) but apparently the girl in charge thought I was offering to do the D'var...*gulp* I've never done one before and I want to say something meaningful and relevant to the audience (college kids, naturally). Any suggestions? I've checked out the page at URJ but I am not sure how to translate this parsha into anything relevant to the people I'll be addressing. If you have any suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments or email Thanks!

"The Pimps' Slaves"

In the wake of the Eliot Spitzer drama, Frank Rich writes about the larger problem prostitution poses for American society: the thousands of abused girls who are trapped without hope for escape or rescue. Check it out.

The Pimps' Slaves

Monday, January 28, 2008


So I've been gone for quite some time--my apologies. Lots of things to post about, but they'll have to wait.

Here's a short list though, just for fun:

*School adventures...or lack thereof ;-)
*My brush with death...aka the epic tale of the biatch who crashed into my car because she was on her cell phone and not looking
*My current obsession with Guitar Hero
*My newly purchased Mac Book
*My new Kodak Easy Share digital camera--which has brought me out of the stone age :-)
*Adventures with hair color---or the saga of how to get plum purple back to platinum blonde without it falling out.
*My weight loss regimen, gym misadventures, and tanning bed foibles
*Dating catastrophes and why I will probably end up a spinster...

Yeah, I know you are all excited ;-) Hahahaah stay tuned, dear readers!
