Red hair!!!!

Okay, guys…. I LOVE MY RED HAIR!! I did more pieces than I originally planned, but since it looks so snazzy, I don’t really care. This is so cheap, too! 16 cents per package, so it won’t drain your bank account! It’s also way less harmful than actual dye, and it washes out after a few weeks, so you can easily do it over a holiday or summer or whatever. It works best on hair that is less clean, so skip a wash or two before you dye. Here’s the what, where, when, and how:
You will need:

  1. Packages of UNSWEETENED Kool Aid in the flavor of your choice
  2. 1 cup water
  3. Heat-resistant bowl
  4. Hair (the most important ingredient)
  5. Time
  6. Patience
  7. Old, cruddy T-shirt you don’t need anymore
Mix the Kool Aid and water together and bring to a boil.  Pour mixture into a heat-resistant bowl, and then dip the tips of your hair into the liquid. Let sit for 5 minutes, then rinse out. Let it dry, and voila! Colored tips! You can also do streaks by doing the same thing, but by taking specific strands of hair and putting it into the liquid. If you want to do more streaks, you will need to boil the liquid again. It needs to be hot. Be careful! This stuff stains like no other, (which is why you’re wearing that cruddy T-shirt!) and gets really hot. Don’t let it touch your skin, and make sure that all the rest of the hair that you DON’T want dyed are kept out of the way. The results are stylish, and awesome. Results may vary, and the color will be more intense with lighter colored hair. Also, if your hair is damaged, this will last longer. Not saying that you should go ruin your hair, but just a heads up. This should last a few weeks. It’s super fun, not harmful, and it smells great! You can also dye all your hair, but you have to use a different, more time-consuming method. This is just a quickie way of dyeing. 
My hands got a bit stained, can you tell?

Just chillin’ while I dye

Doing the tips

Here’s a red streak I did

This is NOT a bowl full of blood.

Still not blood.

Soaking it up

Look what happens when you rinse!

PINK WATER! WOO!

My Kool Aid :^)

Use unsweetened!

I used Black Cherry instead of strawberry for a more dramatic tint

Red!

I. Love. This.

Can’t really see it, but hey! It’s my cute face!

Red, red, red. I love red.

Spazzing

Look at that vision of loveliness.

Oh yeah!

I’m enjoying this entirely too much.

THERE’S RED IN MY HEAD!!

I’m quite satisfied.

Not a bowl of blood. It’s just Kool Aid, guys.
Overall, I’m super happy with this! An easy summer ‘do, and so fun!

On impulse

So… I just dyed my hair with Kool-Aid.
 I now have some red in my head!
Not all my hair, mind you, just the tips and some streaks.
 But it looks so cool! I am a very impulsive person (as I’m sure you know), so this worked out just fine for me! I’ll put up a tutorial soon. I just wanted to brag really quick.
I also discovered how to dye your hair with CHALK. I am soooo doing that, peeps. I’ll prob. do that too in a few days, so… Yeah. Ciao!

It made my day.

ALERT:
I’m a music addict.
Okay, maybe you aren’t that surprised, but I just wanted to make sure you knew about that for sure.
Anyways, I have some thrilling and exciting news for y’all.
I’M GOING TO MY FIRST REAL CONCERT!!!
This Friday, Julia and I are seeing He Is We at the Nile Theater, and holy moly am I excited!! A night full of music, and I get to be a part of it. Yay!
So after I got all hooked up, I Tweeted it, (because I’m a devoted Twitter user), and I tagged them in it, thinking nothing of it, and about 30 minutes after I posted it, He Is We actually REPLIED TO MY TWEET. OH MY CRAP.
They said “Arizona! Can’t wait.”
Who knew three words would be so insanely happy-making?! It seriously made my day.
Did I mention I’m jazzed???

It’s up!

Sorry I’ve been offline for a while, peeps. I’ve been meaning to post, but I get distracted. However, I have some exciting news for you all!
I started a new blog!
I’ve been considering starting a music review blog so that I could share my opinions with everyone (because I don’t already do that enough), and a few weeks ago I got my butt in gear and started it! Mostly because I was so excited about Owl City’s new EP, I couldn’t contain myself. EEE!! HIS NEW ALBUM COMES OUT AUGUST 14TH!!! *faints* Anyway, I decided what the heck? I’ll start a music blog, and I decided that I should let another fellow music addict in on the fun, so Julia became an author, as well! So… Yeah. Check it out, peeps!

there’s hope for this young voice yet.

Last night as I was wallowing in my little pit of misery, I picked Geneal up from Flashback, and she told me something miraculous.
Ms. Giles wanted to find me after school, but she didn’t. Why did she want to find me?
BECAUSE SHE WANTS ME IN SELECT CHOIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’ve dreamed about this day since seventh grade, and I’d pretty much given up, but now? Now I can do it! She WANTS me in there. I didn’t audition for it because I didn’t want to sightread, so I thought I was toast, but she wants me in there!!! Can you believe it?!
I didn’t even audition for Select, and apparently she believes in me enough to put me in there!
There’s hope for this young voice yet.

estoy deprimida y enojada.

Some days you just hate yourself with all the passion one can possibly muster, and there’s not much you can do about it, partly because there’s no cute boy waiting to enfold you in his arms, holding you and telling you it’s okay. Because we all need a cute boy who’s willing to just hold us.
I didn’t get into Encore, which I was expecting. But the worst part is I could have auditioned for Select Choir or A Capella, and I didn’t. All it would have taken was some measly sight reading, and I didn’t do it because I was confident I could get into Encore. Why am I such an idiot? As soon as I walked out of the audition, I KNEW I should have just frickin’ sight-read. But it was too late, and now I have to pay for it.
Add exhaustion, hunger, and the sun, and you have a recipe for a (teary) disaster. I’m trying so hard to not just burst into tears right now. I wanted to get in more than just about anything, and now because of a split second decision, I’m not in it. The only way to be in a choir now is to go back to Concert Choir, which is AWFUL, because that choir pretty much only has freshmen in it, and I will be A JUNIOR. I don’t want to do that, but I really miss choir.
Did I mention I hate myself?
Oh, shoot.
Gotta go. I’m crying now.
