My {Filofax} Week 11

Paper Lovestory's My Week

It’s a new week, and boy am I excited.

Here’s my week:

Week 11 Filofax

And for a quick recap of what happened {in case you aren’t at all interested in reading about my life}:

  • I spoke too soon about the photo challenge.
  • It was one of those meeting weeks at work.
  • We had a painter come over to give us a quote for painting my room.
  • Saturday started with a trip to Tyson’s Corner in Virginia.
  • I also managed to finally get my hair done.

And for the longer version {for those of you who like to read or are just nosy :)}:

I guess this was just one of those weeks where I was ready to be done. With Spring break coming up, everyone had a bit of Spring fever, but unlike the week before a break, this one was full of meetings. I didn’t feel that any of them were terribly productive. Many of them were just ways to catch people up to speed.

Everything seemed to suffer a bit this week. I’m now pretty far behind on my photo challenge, so I’m going to take the next few days to catch up while I’m off. I didn’t exactly have a chance to slack off on my assignments though because this week everything was due by Friday night. I knew this at the beginning of the semester. I even took a quiz that said I was aware of this week being the exception to the due dates, but Friday morning, the reminder email from my professor came as a shock to me.

After going after the room renovations full force last weekend, I started to realize I may be in over my head. If my room wasn’t massive and I wasn’t so vertically challenged, I’d probably not be dreading so much, but hiring someone seemed to be an easy way out. We had a guy come over to give us a quote on pricing. I was honestly a bit shocked when he came back with a price of over $1000 for JUST my room. We already had the paint, AND I wasn’t even asking him to do the stripes on the one wall! Needless to say, I’m now gearing up to paint my own room.

Working full time has really screwed with my sleep schedule. I used to be a night owl and now I’m waking up at 7am without an alarm. Go figure. Saturday, after waking up yet again at another ridiculously early hour, I decided to venture down to Tyson’s Corner. It only took a few hours to realize why I never enjoy driving in D.C. or Virginia, but I survived.

new hair cut

Saturday afternoon, I managed to bite the bullet and get my hair cut and highlighted. I have a hard time going to get my hair cut. I’m really self conscious about my hair. More importantly I always find some other thing to spend the money on, but a Groupon deal for a place that had been recommended to me came up, $55 for full highlights, a shampoo, and cut at Kisner’s. After 2 years of not getting my hair cut or highlighted, it’s nice to have a bit of a new look. I got a couple inches taken off and a some layers put in so that my hair did more than just fall flat. Now that I’m a bit more blonde again, I also have an excuse for all my blonde moments.

So that was my week. I’m off until Thursday so I’m taking it easy this week or trying to at least. I’ve already managed to get injured with a nice gash above my lip. Thankfully, I escaped stitches.
