“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”—Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid (via thingssheloves)
Okay, Katherine. I haven't seen you very much, or for a while, but whatever. Is your hair still dyed red and are you enjoying whatever it is that you do?
my hair is no longer dyed at all, it’s back to my natural hair color, which is also red, it’s just natural red, so i guess that means more orange. i miss dying it fun colors, and i wish i had had more time in my life to dye my hair and be fun, but i went from having a serious job in my field where i couldn’t have fun hair, to getting to go wild with my life, and then having to go back to being regular looking so i can have a job and not starve. i could probably keep getting tattoos and piercings and dying my hair for a while, but it’s easier to just let it go. I’m also way too poor to dye my hair since my hair grows at a ridiculously fast speed. that was probably way more than you needed to know. i am very much enjoying my life right now. school is mostly fine, work is fine, and i am very happy with my boyfriend, will.
i am trying to make it a point to go out and see people again. it feels good. had dinner with brendan last night and hung out for a while. next week my friend sara is coming in from RISD to visit for the day and the next week maeve is going to come visit and stay for a night or two. and then the next week i have a date with my friend liz. it probably doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a lot for me and i’m exited and happy.
