Well, That Didn't Go As Planned...

Oh well. The Wings had a great season in which they faced a lot of adversity -- lots of injuries, and a tough road schedule as usual, and they kicked its ass. It does need to be said though: Pavel's shot was an absolute snipe show.

Damn. He's incredible. Watching the playoffs from afar this year has really got me excited to go to as many games as possible next season! Mother, that means that I need a season ticket in addition to the ones you have. K, thanks! And don't act like we wouldn't have a majorly awesome time with that (yes, I said majorly awesome). Greektown, casino, bakery...oh, and of course the hockey too!

Anyhow, I am completely and shamelessly avoiding studying at all costs. I have cleaned my room, gone grocery shopping, read magazines, uploaded photos, and I'm getting ready to go for a run...yet, I've spent about ten minutes looking through a few slides. I'm truthfully not too worried about my exams, but I really do need to put a little more time in to this whole revision deal. Meh, whatever.

Last night, my friends and I went to Opal, which is down on the embankment. It's where we're holding our end of the year School of Public Policy ball, so we went on a semi-secret mission to go check it out. It was great! As I've griped about before, I'm not too into the whole English house music bar/club scene here. My friends know -- I'm a slave to the dance floor. It's true. But, I just can't get into it with the house music. Luckily, on Friday nights Opal plays amazing American dance music...think: Britney, Gaga, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, etc. Hello, lover! We had a pretty great time.

The lady that we are in talks with for the event offered us free admission, a private table, and a bottle of wine. Who are we to say no? The booths had these horribly tacky yet simply amazing rhinestone details.

I was craving a Cosmopolitan...don't ask me why. So I decided to have one. Or four.

And Matt, now that you've told me you read this, this photo simply had to go up. He liked my drink. Isn't he so cute??

Oh, so you've also probably noticed that I chopped my hair off. Well, I didn't do it myself -- but I paid way too much money to have someone who actually knows what they're doing do it for me! I was feeling a little too attached to my long, damaged, un-styled hair, and I don't like feeling too attached to anything aside from, dogs. I thought I'd come out of the experience with a haircut that was okay; one that would be a lot better for the summer and easier to manage. But, to my surprise, I actually really like it. It's super corny, but it really is freeing to cut ten inches off of one's hair. Plus, my head feels very light now...though that may actually just be my hangover.

**thank you to my graphic designer friend A who has made my blog look a little more presentable...I'm useless with that stuff! :)


  1. I just have to say: Your hair is adorable!! I really loved it long too but that short cut suits you perfectly. I have pretty long (though not as long as yours was) thick hair too, so I understand not wanting that in the summer.

    Your adorable as always, thanks for interesting pictures and details on your life there.

  2. Thank you!! That's so kind. I do have to was quite nice to cut my hair. You might surprise yourself and love it. I can definitely understand not wanting to part with it though. It took me quite a while.
