Getting a new look for school! - page 3

I am so excited about being accepted and starting school on the 25th, that I decided to go and get a new hairstyle and color tomorrow. I've worn my hair shoulder length for 20+ years and I just may... Read More

    I need to lose 5.

    From each thigh

    That'll happen probably a month from now when clinicals start back up.

    I started working out and just went on a shopping spree and bought some sexy jeans with the matching jackets. I usually buy boy jeans because I am tall, but I found some long enough at Old Navy and I almost started crying because they fit perfectly.

    I had my hair braided, so I can be on time and not worry about doing my hair.

    I also bought tons of sexy bras and undies. Dunno why...just felt like celebrating.

    We have a girl in my class who has been buying scrubs like crazy for "when i graduate". And she's made C's for grades, a 78% which is the lowest passing grade. Amazes me.<~~~~Marieeee

    If you'd just see her though, she's been buying stuff like crazy, i mean a new top each week, when she should put more effort into getting grades higher than a 78 or 79. Granted it's none of my business but when she says outloud "as long as i got a 78 i'm ok!" i just think that her priorities are out of whack. That's sad

    I think that getting a new look is great. I have learned that when you look good you feel good and feeling good gives you confidence. I don't spend alot of time getting ready or alot of money on clothes, but you can even look nice in jeans and a sweatshirt with a little light make-up and a cute haircut.

    As far as buying things for the future, I already have so much stuff, but I have been working in the medical field for seven years. I came to the conclusion that at the end of each semester, I will treat myself to one special thing such as a Littman, Dansko shoes and things like that. I think that buying scrubs are totally thinking too far ahead, unless you buy them for bed, or lounging around the house. Most places have dress codes, and I have had to buy new scrubs for all three jobs I have had in the past seven years.

    Bevi,
    It's a goldenish blonde with some red in it... I like it. My husband is on his way back from a trip to see his brothers in Athens, GA and Greenville, SC so it will be a surprise to him. lol

    I read this thread last night and after I went to bed I had this weird dream...

    I wanted a new look for a new semester...so I colored my hair this gorgeous dark, brick red...but still had gray hairs sticking out. My 9-yr-old ripped them out for me. It was hideous.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Ok, ok...... have been procrastinating on getting my hair trimmed again for several weeks now, but reading this thread has just given me the kick in the tail I needed to get it done. Going to call right now and see if she can fit me in. Just hate wasting ANY part of my day off doing something mundane.... but then, if I come out of there looking CUTE again, then I guess it's not so mundane afterall, is it?

    Thanx guys ! I'm reaching for the phone....

    cuteness rules.

    I start second semester LPN program in 6 days! WOOHOO!!! I've cranked into personal mode majorly! I'm currently dieting to lose some weight (50lbs so far gone...I'm severely overweight) My hair is down to my rear-end. I can't stand it up in a bun or anything. I wear my hair to class and clinicals in two braids. On a dress down day I showed up with it in usual form...left down but curles....they were amazed!

    I guess I'm a luckey one. I have naturally light blonde hair with strawberry highlights. woohoo!! So no color for me.

    But I have been using those pore strips to get rid of the blackheads on my face, the lotion to battle my dry legs, and all this stuff I'll probably stop doing 3 days after school starts..lol But its fun to do it now when I have the time...makes you feel better about yourself.

    My big feel-good preparation, was when I had to go get new scrubs, not because I wanted them...but because my scrubs from the 1st semester are WAY too big now! =0) WOOHOO!!

    Can't wait to go back! =0)
