Hair

I have been using the same Herbal Essences Body Envy Shampoo since I was in like fourth grade. (Yes I know you’re supposed to vary your shampoo every so often to make sure it keeps working, but oh well.) Recently I was in Target with some friends — we may or may not have spent two hours there — and we found ourselves in the shampoo aisle. I saw a shampoo that said it smelled like “rosemary & herbs” and upon closer inspection, it also smelled like sandalwood.

If you don’t know me ridiculously well, you probably don’t know that rosemary and sandalwood are my absolute favorite scents. Now that you know that, you can probably guess I couldn’t stop myself from buying this shampoo. So far, I’ve been loving it! It smells amazing and my hair has been super soft lately! This has made me want to try new shampoos more often, but let’s be honest … I probably won’t.

 

YouTube

A little bit ago I wrote a post about my favorite YouTube channels. In the time since writing that post, I’ve gotten super into a new YouTuber. If you’re as nerdy as I am and especially if you love Star Wars, you need to check out Jenny Nicholson. Her deadpan sense of humor, sharp as a tack commentary, and passion for Star Wars have quickly made her one of my favorite YouTubers.

 

I’m going to see The Last Jedi with Brendan and my friends Sarah and Isabel (Isabel introduced me to Jenny’s videos!) on Thursday night and I’m definitely going to be keeping Jenny’s bingo card in mind when I’m watching. (She tweeted that she was surprised one of her predictions came true!)

 

Life

It’s finals week at my school right now. While that means lots of studying and writing papers, for me it also means spending a lot of time with friends. This semester I mostly just have papers, which I like because I can write papers pretty quickly so it’s better than having to spend a whole bunch of time holed up in the library going through flashcards. Because of that, I’ve got lots of fun plans with some of my favorite people.

Today I went to our gymnastics teams’ intrasquad meet. I covered gymnastics for our campus newspaper last year and I wanted to get a peek at how this season will be looking for them. That same day, our paper had our fall formal. I love Flat Hat Formal because I normally spend time with those people in our grimy basement newspaper office, but once a semester we get to dress up fancy and dance together and it’s so much fun! I’ve included a couple of my favorite pictures from the night below:

In the upcoming weeks, I’m going to see The Last Jedi with some friends, going to a Highly Suspect concert with Brendan, and going to Christmastown at Busch Gardens with Brendan. I can’t wait!
