ok fine, not depressed anymore

what better thing to cheer a girl up than to go to a Padres game with her brother!

i have not been this depressed since... hmmmm... let me think.... Monday May 30th to be exact. it was the day after my graduation weekend and all of my family was gone, and i was about to leave San Francisco and move back to San Diego, and i was all alone all day. it was one of those anti-climactic depressions after a wonderful event, or after some culminating experience that was very meaningful and then just suddenly over.

i write this posting today not looking for pity in regards to my depression, more just to have an outlet to express it. i am a very happy person overall. i enjoy being a happy person. i have a great life and remind myself of that regularly when minor bad things happen. but, when i woke up this morning and i was instantly depressed, i knew it was severe. i ALWAYS wake up happy. people who know me know that. it's almost annoying actually.

my beautiful long wavy hair is gone. i went in for my haircut yesterday looking for some style, something cute, some way to make my flow-y long locks look dynamic or sexy or something. i walked out with a very adorable do, don't get me wrong, it's cute, i'm not saying i hate it... it's great actually... but i never asked for it to be so short.

when i went into my bathroom this morning to scoop up all of the stray hairs that get sprinkled around my world, i noticed they were all long, and had these fat curls at the end of them. it made me almost start to cry. i am convinced that it will take over a year at least for me to get that length back. i may even be so traumatized that i will never cut my hair again. ok, maybe that's an extreme statement. so, how about this... my new statement that i live by when going in for a haircut, "i'm growing it out, i only need a trim." how's that?

"you should see the spreadsheets."

"style" means "chop"

I went to get a new "style" for my hair today... and as you can see, it got CHOPPED off. So far everyone has told me that they think it's cute... but I'm not too happy. I really loved the length of my hair. And, while I definitely needed some shape or style to it, I have been working hard for years to grow it out. I had no idea it would end up so short and I miss my long ponytail already. :(

my sister is so neat, she's nifty!

i went to pick up a dress on hold for my step-sister Misti today... but they couldn't find anything held under her name.

so i gave them her last name... and my first and last name... finally they found it... under the name "Nifty".

this is how life-long family nicknames are formed.

Quote of the day - Monday

"i'm the wien-A not the wien-ER."


did anyone notice that as soon as those crazy bachelorette party pictures shifted off my front page the html of my "about me" on the right side of this page straightened itself out? i dont know why it even slipped down weirdly in the first place... and for all of you coders out there, i don't even want to know. it gives me a headache. :)

Saying goodbye

For our final night together Monica kidnapped Rebecca and me and wisked us off to her bridal suite at the Hyatt in Newport Beach. Due to her amazing and understanding new husband (who passed out as soon as we arrived) us 3 girls had a silly night with only one hour of sleep.

Can you tell we are about to have an emotional crying goodbye? Nah!
