I decided to try something new with my hair It was pretty simple, just a sideways French braid with the ends pinned under, But…I don’t know. It didn’t seem terribly me. By the time rehearsal rolled around, I’d undone it and plopped it up in a frizzy ponytail. And somehow, sadly, that seemed to suit me better.

This outfit was mostly built around the shoes. Do you know how hard it can be to wear purple shoes? Surprisingly, with my wardrobe, it is. So I have to be crafty.

I wore this for another day of teaching nonverbal improv and rehearsing with my kiddos! Today I had them play a game I call Zombie Apocalypse. I moved all of the furniture to the sides of the room, blindfolded all of my students, and picked one to be the zombie. Then they had to shamble across the room, and when the zombie grabbed someone else, that person had to scream the most dramatic scream they could and try to infect someone else. The winner was the last person to not be infected. Needless to say, it was pretty awesome.

I also wore my Kurt necklace to celebrate the return of Glee! It’s such a crappy show but I can’t quit it. I love Kurt/Chris Colfer too much. And they don’t actually make much in the way of Kurt-related show merchandise (although I have a Dalton shirt, a Kurt shirt from Forever 21, a pink Glee shirt, and a messenger bag), so I had this made at one of those little kiosks in the mall. It’s super cute.

I just hope Glee doesn’t disappoint me!

Practical Educator

8/24

WHAT KIND OF FACE AM I MAKING? OH MY GOD. DERP ALERT.

Ahem.

In other news, nothing says “I am a practical educator in a private school” like wearing a denim skirt. But do you know what? I like this one. It’s a nice style, it’s comfy, it’s flattering, and my parents offered to pay for it as a gift. So…awesome.

Also, I needed an outfit to go with these purple shoes. Do you know how many outfits match this shade of purple? Not many, my friend. Not many. But they’re incredibly cute and comfy.

This was also my second attempt at wearing the Hiccup necklace, and this time it worked- I had it turned the right way!

I tried a small something different with my hair. My hair curls naturally, usually in a loose and unkempt sort of way, so I touch it up with a curling iron. I usually use a 2″ barrel; today I couldn’t find it (still don’t know how it walked away) so I dug out the 1″ one I use for performances. The smaller curls actually looked pretty dang cute! I might have to work with this one a little more.
