Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Jan. 31

Published in: MAC Makeup

the makeup and beauty blog monday poll

  • You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”
    Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past three years, which I guess makes this somewhere around Vol. 155. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Like Tony the Tiger says, “Grrrrrreat!” :)

  3. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
  4. Lash extensions (where an aesthetician individually glues false lashes to your natural lashes to make ‘em look longer). I doubt I’d go there, though, because some experts recommend not using pencil liners with them. The friction caused while using pencil liners can loosen extensions where they’re attached. GURL, I loves me some drag-a-licious lashes, but not if getting them means having to forsake my stick of MAC Powersurge.

  5. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?
  6. Lots of stuff. That was 2006…which was when I first got married. I’d tell myself to just start making babies already. Oh, and I was in pretty good shape back then, so I’d also tell myself to spend more time walking around in bikinis, haha!

  7. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
  8. Leave ‘em. I can appreciate the convenience of not having to think about coordinating a shirt with pants, but they’re a logistical challenge in the bathroom. You have to work your way out of the top first — no easy task when they’re usually over-decorated with unnecessary buttons and zippers — while simultaneously keeping the bottoms from dragging on the bathroom floor, LOL! Way too complicated. Plus, I can never find them in my size, and I hate getting pants hemmed.

  9. When no one is looking I…
  10. Dance around Tabs like an “MTV girl” (remember that scene in The Fighter?); or I read Us Weekly (or Cat Fancy), watch bad horror films about exorcisms, or shave my toes.

  11. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind?
  12. Clarins Hydraquench Cream. My face would FREAK without it, for reals.

  13. I’m a good friend because…
  14. I’ve always got your back.

  15. I’m a bad friend because…
  16. I don’t call enough.

  17. Hair up or down?
  18. Down. My bangs are still out of control, but the rest of my hair has been rather well behaved lately.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To enjoy each and every day (I’m committed to keeping it simple this week).

How was your weekend, boo? Mine was super chill. I got some extra sleep, did some house cleaning, got in a good workout and watched a LOT of TV (a cop show called Southland; have you seen it?).



Drop in to say hi when you get a chance. I hope your week gets off to a great start.

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? It doesn’t matter that the people you went to high school with don’t like you, cause now you’ve got them all kissing up to you. Especially that one guy that you had the biggest crush on.

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
    Botox….so I did and I loved it so I’m now addicted to Dysport (another form of Botox) and gave up going to see my hairdresser for at home haircolor just so I can get my injections every 3 months! It’s amazing what we prioritize!

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?
    I was never getting married again. Then I did a year later.

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
    Leave em – I drink lots of water everyday so I would be struggling with it all day.

    5. When no one is looking I…
    Clean out my nose…..sounds gross but I have horrible allergies and where I live – the weather is cold and the air is dry, so my shnozze fills up! HA HA

  4. Amber says:

    1. Mood: Chipper! Just scheduled a couple’s massage for Valentine’s Day at a fancy spa!
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? I’d also love to try eyelash extensions, but you’re not supposed to use oil-based makeup remover and that’s all I use. In lieu of that, I’d like to try a lash growth potion, but it’s not worth the possible side effects.
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? I’d tell myself about the skincare routine that finally worked!
    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? Leave. I’m long-waisted and rarely fit one-piece anything.

  7. Stephanie says:

    1. Mood:
    I’m so happy! I just got a message that I’m going to Kenya in the fall! It’s with an organization that helps underdeveloped countries and its education.

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
    Nailfoils!

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?
    That I was going to the theatreschool.. Not! I almost failed my education so it took 1 year longer than actually, then I decided to work but at last I decided to go back to school, which is now 2011.

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
    Oh no! Maybe back in the early 90s but not in 2011.

    5. When no one is looking I…
    always nod my head and lipsync a stupid childish songs, haha.

    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind?
    Creamed Almond & Coconut Smoothie from LUSH. It’s in front of me.

    7. I’m a good friend because…
    You can trust me, I’m very loyal, spontaneous and there is always somthing to laugh about with me.

    8. I’m a bad friend because…
    I can be a bitch sometimes, I say what I think and every person gets one chance with me… One of my best friends blew that chance away.. Goodbye!

    Right now.. up.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Work hard on my schoolproject.. It’s due friday and I still have a lot to do!

  8. Kim says:

    1. Mood: Pretty blah.
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Oh, I’m totally with you on the lashes. I assume we can’t consider full-body-lipo as a beauty trend? ;)
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? Oh, yes. Realize that you’re not 17 anymore and take care of your knees!
    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? I have to tell you this because I think you’ll laugh very hard. I imagined the garage mechanic style (or like the orange zip up “prison” jumpsuit that Will Smith wore at the beginning of Men in Black) and was like “Oh, I’ve wanted one since I was a kid, though I don’t think it would be super flattering”. I googled “one-piece pant suit” just in case I was thinking of the wrong thing. The results were juuuuust a bit different. HAHAHAHA! I’m going to say No, thanks on the swanky ladies’ version. Way too stylish for me (and I’d agree, hard to get out of). It’s totally OK if you completely mock me for that mistake, btw. Actually being such a dodo has improved my mood immeasurably. :)
    5. When no one is looking I… guess I scratch? I’m usually itchy (my back) and try not to scratch in front of the general public. I work with someone who is constantly scratching her forearms and picking at scabs on them. It totally grosses me out so I’m pretty conscious of not doing any scratching in front of others (aside from close friends/family).
    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? Hypnose. But I’m sad to say that it wasn’t quick. My first 5 seconds were spent in a blank stare thinking “um… um….” as the panic to find an answer built!
    7. I’m a good friend because… I genuinely enjoy my friends and always want to spend time with them; even if it’s just sitting around, doing nothing special.
    8. I’m a bad friend because…I’m sometimes careless about what I say.
    9. Hair up or down? Down unless I’m working out. Then it has to be up and the bangs pulled back. I hate wiping strands of hair off my sweaty face!
    10. Weekly goals: It should be to take my weekly goals seriously! :)

    • Karen says:

      Oh gosh. Thank you for the reminder. I need to start giving my knees some TLC (too many years of running! damn that endorphin addiction!).

      Sooo yeah… I totally itch when nobody’s looking too, especially the arches of my feet! When I worked in a cube I remember having to do it on the DL; it was NOT easy, especially when I was wearing boots!

      • Kim says:

        The knee advice is good but, sadly, I know myself – I wouldn’t have listened anyway. :) Oooh, yes, itchy arches are the worst especially when you’re wearing boots. Plus, scratching them is always so “tickly”!

  9. l33n3r says:

    1. Mood: Happy! We JUST GOT OUT OF DEBT! Woo! And I ran into an former co-worker this morning who said I look really great and I am choosing to believe her.
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Facials. Never had one and I think they could help brighten up my 37 year old facey.
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? An autism diagnosis for your 18-month old boy is not the end of the world. God is looking out for him. And you too.

    5. When no one is looking I…surf the net at work!

  19. Liz! says:

    1. Mood: Good! I had a great weekend and am looking forward to the week!

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? I’d love to get my hair chemically straightened, not with the scary formaldehyde stuff though!

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? You will soon experience a really really REALLY long and hard rough patch in life, but stay strong, it will get better.

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? Not really into them.

    5. When no one is looking I…pick at my cuticles. They always look awful! It’s a combination of a weird nervous habit, and the fact that they always look ragged so I try to fix them and inevitably make them worse :P

    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? Blush! I totally have my sights set on a few, mainly Mighty Aphrodite when Wonder Woman comes out, I can’t wait!!! I also kinda want the Pink Power MSF, but that’s not truly a blush.

    7. I’m a good friend because…I’m thoughtful. I send little notes or facebook messages. I get you stuff I know you need even before you say it.

    8. I’m a bad friend because…I’m terrible at calling too, and I feel like that’s so much more meaningful and personal.

    9. Hair up or down? I definitely prefer it down, unless I’m working out of course.

    10. Weekly goals: Finish the first of 4 books for my Social and Cultural Foundation class, it’s called “the spirit catches you and you fall down”, it’s about the culture clashes experienced by a Hmong family and the hospital staff at the small county hospital they are taking their daughter with epilepsy to. It’s a great read, and I seriously wish I had read (or know about) it 5 years ago, when I really started to work with many culturally diverse clients. I feel like I’m pretty culturally sensitive, but it’s one of those books that makes you think of better questions to ask when you’re working with anyone you’re experiencing culture or language barriers with. Pretty random, but I’d definitely recommend it to anyone going into any sort of helping profession.

    A bit anxious – it’s been a busy day at work and I have stuff to get caught up on at home as well.

    What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
    Probably that new crackle nail polish. I rarely paint my nails, but it looks kind of cool with the right layering colors.

    Leave dishes out on the counter, stay in my pajamas all day, read for hours on end.

    I don’t initiate calling or emailing enough.

    Down. My hair is too short to wear up.

    Try to promote peace among the cats in my house. We adopted a new kitty (Ella) this weekend, but she’s not totally in love with our resident cat, Mingus. She hisses at him and gives him the evil eye. I hope things don’t deteriorate into a kitty-pocalypse.

  32. Missy says:

    1. Mood: Stressed. Just back to work after a week long vacation and trying to dig myself out of a pile of work. Speaking of digging…we’ve got 23 inches of snow headed to Chicago over the next two days, so I’m a bit anxious about my commute for the next few days (I’ve spent 4 hours trying to get to work in lesser storms).

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Brazilian blowout! Or a facial. I’ve never had a facial, but I have huge pores, so I think a professional extraction/cleaning would probably help.

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? Wear Sunscreen!!!!!! I was a full-time lifeguard during summers in college and I used to use tanning oil for 8 hour days in the sun! Can you believe that!?! I’m now 26 and already seeing the results of that bad decision. :(

    1. Mood: A little anxious…I just got back from being in a wedding in Ojai and I begin a class tomorrow in addition to working full-time!

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? The brazilian blowout! It’s just SO darn expensive and doesn’t last nearly long enough for the amount of money. I think it’d be perfect for my hair texture though!

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? Stop being so selfish! It would have saved by husband and I a lot of fighting time. :)

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? Leave ‘em. Leave ‘em waaaay behind.

    5. When no one is looking I…pick my nose. I don’t eat it or anything, but I definitely pick. Eww and TMI, right? :P

    5. When no one is looking I… always pick my teeth……disgusting, I know, but I always have this phobia that I have something on my teeth.

    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? Mascara…..amazing what just ONE product can do to change the appearance of my face!

    7. I’m a good friend because… I’m loyal, committed and will always tell you the truth!

      • DonnaN says:

        Baby is great! They are watching my HBP and I’m developing Gestational Diabetes, which they are now treating with meds. Bedrest for a minimum of a week, maybe perm until the baby arrives…..which could be anywhere from the next 5-8 weeks (they’ll let me get to 36-39 weeks if the baby comes on her own, but will induce at 39wks)…EEK !!!

  37. Lucie says:

    Mood:
    Alright. Little under the weather feeling. ;)

    What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
    I love bright tangerine lips so much but do not -gasp- own a true orange lipstick. I’m ordering that tangerine Tom Ford lippy tonight if I can get around my mum; she is completely appalled by people who spend more than ten bucks a month on cosmetics. When she found my stash of Rouge Cocos I had to pretend it was the new packaging for Maybelline. xD

    Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?
    I’d sing my eleven year old self (Oh geeze, I can’t believe I was ever eleven much less five years ago!) that Jimmy Eat World song-’It Just Takes Some Time’.

    One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
    I’m a fan if they are completely outrageous; tie dye or something like that. I have never actually seen one like that, but if I did I’d snap it up in an instant! The problem is always the inseem-I hate having to get pants tailored in anyway, but the legs are so long on those things!

    When no one is looking I…
    Sing Yoko Ono songs loudly to myself. ‘Walking on thin ice! I’m payin’ the price with my heartttt!” Reading through these answers makes me feel a lot less alone in the universe.

    Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind?
    Jack Black lip balm! My lips are so chapped right now but I’m too tired to go to the bathroom and get it.

    I’m a good friend because…
    I’m there forever.

    I’m a bad friend because…
    I talk about lipstick and fancy rats too much.

    Hair up or down?
    It’s always down now; my hair is two inches at the longest sections as of two weeks ago. :D

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? I’d like to really try fake lashes, the individual kind. I did once and it was such a pain I haven’t done it again, but I could really use it! My lashes are super long but not very thick.

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? That man is NOT for you. And don’t worry, you’ll find a livelihood that you love.

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? God no, not for normal women! Maybe if I was a star walking the red carpet in it for just one night…

      Hi Zara,

      Hmm, have you tried lining and filling your lips in first with a nude lip liner before applying your red lipstick? That helps a lot. So does using a lip brush. :)

    • Karen says:

      Advah! What did you decide for the headshots?

      • Advah says:

        I’ve still not decided! I might go for some cream eyeshadow (that chrome patina one is lovely), blue liner (to make my brown eyes pop) and plenty of mascara? I’m stupidly stressing out over that damn headshot, I don’t want people to see what I look like!

        seriously. I should not be watching that show :)

        I like it, although it wore off really fast for me? I may try it with a lipliner next time. but I really liked that it wasn’t goopy and didn’t wear off unevenly/grossly – I have this problem with so many glosses (ahem, mac lipglass)

    7. I’m a good friend because… I’m pretty calm and reassuring.
    8. I’m a bad friend because… I’m kind of a recluse.

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?

    - I’m a little self centered…and can be judgmental at times.

    9. Hair up or down?
    - Up. South Texas weather can’t quite figure out what it’s wants to do. The week will start with a high of 75 and horrifically humid (my hair HATES the slightest bit of humidity), but by Wednesday we should be getting snow! I know, crazy.

    Hmmm…probably some of those fancy schmancy spa treatments that I can’t afford.

    To find a better job – I wallowed in one I didn’t like for too long for the money.

    One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
    Anything one-piece is a leave ‘em for me (unless we’re talking about swimsuits). I need to be able to pee without stripping down to my bra.

      • Elle says:

        Yeah, I have been wanting to do it for a LOOONG time. Watching every Manny Pacquaio fight made me want to do it, growing up watching it with my dad made me want to do it, and The Fighter finally pushed me over the edge. I am intimidated as hell but am going to find a way to make it work!

      Hope you had a great Monday too.

  56. Catherine says:

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Bright orange lipstick. Haven’t got one yet!

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? Five years ago I was … 17. I would tell myself that everything would be ok and get a real liquid concealer instead of using pressed powder on my undereye area. o_O;

    1. Mood: content
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Bright orange eye shadow, just to try out what its like. I don’t think I’ll look good in it, but I may as well give it a go.
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? Have more self control and ease up on shopping!
    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? leave ‘em. I have wide hips, so they make me look a bit prego most of the time.

    7. I’m a good friend because…I listen to my friends and I try to pick up on their needs.

    1. Mood:
    Perky with a dose of tired. It’s my birthday today! (I’m officially 22)

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
    Really volumized hair. However, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen seeing as my hair type is fine….which means volume is a constant issue.

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?
    Um, I was pretty decent at 17 so no, I don’t think there would be anything I’d tell the 17-year-ol me except to stop stressing out (altough I still have that issue now!). Now, if we were talking to the 14-year-old me, that would be a different story. There’d be a laundry list of things I’d tell myself.

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
    Omg, leave ‘em. If I have to take my entire outfit off to go the bathroom, it does NOT go in my closet.

    5. When no one is looking I…
    obsess over the tiny things.

    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind?
    Lipgloss, man, lipgloss.

    10. Weekly goals:
    -Survive the “Worst Blizzard since 1967″ we’re supposed to get. Seriously, it’s TWO feet (actually, approximately 20 inches). Two feet is not a lot of snow people. When I lived in Colorado, we had three day blizzards that resulted in something like 8 feet of snow. Two feet is nothin’. I’ve lived through worse.
    -Yes, get the root canal done. I was PMS-ing last week and had to cancel. I’m not getting a root canal done when I have a migraine, sorry.
    -Spend birthday money! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! I love my grandparents.
    -Watch Batdog. I think she’s planning something.
    -Order more of my special acne-busting facial soap. I swear I found the holy grail of facial cleansers. Okay, it’s a soap and it smells like chamomile tea with honey (a smell I hate), but boy does that stuff work on my acne and leave my combination skin balanced.
    -Order more books or go to the library. I’ve run out of books to read. Bad things happen when I have nothing to read. I mean, I have books, but I’ve read them all! At least twice! I need variety people! I’m going to shrivel up and die from boredom. (No, the school books don’t count. We haven’t gotten to reading the interesting ones yet.)

    A little tired, but excited because Chinese/Lunar New Year is afoot (This Thursday, actually)! And I’ve got some last minute stuff to settle :P

    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?
    I’d love to try red lips, or bolder lip colours. Can never seem to pull off bolder lip colours :(

    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago?
    Don’t bother wasting time with people who you’ll not see after a year, that extended semester and that person just because you were new and lonely.

    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em?
    They do make dressing when you’re rushed more convenient, though I suppose the cut and colour should be flattering in the first place too to not look frumpy!

    5. When no one is looking I…
    … pick my nose? Adjust my underwear? They obviously need to be done, after all :P

    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind?
    T. LeClerc Pressed Powder in Banane. Keeps my skin looking radiant and covers the redness on my cheeks, and coverage is sheer enough for me without being heavy or oily :)

    7. I’m a good friend because…
    I care and am loyal.

    8. I’m a bad friend because…
    I hardly keep in touch once we don’t meet any more :\

    9. Hair up or down?
    I prefer my hair down most of the time- it’s more flattering for me because if I have my hair up or short my face looks longer than usual. Even for formal dos I don’t have my hair completely up haha!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Finish cleaning up my room (Just light dusting to be done), change my bedsheets, change my Japanese noren curtain, give my hair a little more TLC and then enjoy the Chinese/Lunar New Year and weekend!

    1. Mood: almost dead (final exam of the season, and I haven’t had a good night’s sleep for 3 consecutive days…)
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try?: Full bangs, I guess (but I’m not sure if I’d be brave enough to ull that off)
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself 5 years ago? Don’t struggle to get better grades from Maths and Physics that much, it’s not worth it, AT ALL… get more free time, don’t try to live up to everyone’s expectations etc etc
    4. One-piece pant suits: leave them, so unpractical…
    5. When no one is looking… I sing musical songs with my non-existent voice :).
    6. Quick!-What’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? Labello Hydro Care chapstick (probably because it’s right in front of me :D)
    7- I’m a good friend, because: I’m one to count on, I’m a great listener and advice giver and I’m up to lots of ‘adventures’ anytime :D.
    8-I’m a bad friend, because: I need some solitude and passive recreation every now and then and I can’t really pretend I like something you rave about when I clearly don’t… and I think I can be quite depressive and way too depressed, too.
    9. Hair up or down? Down (but I like wearing it up, too).
    10. Weekly goals: construct my schedule for the university next semester, search for a mentor for my thesis and get some sleeeeeep…

  63. Alice says:

    1. Mood: happy! I went to work this morning singing in the car like crazy, LOL!
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? a straightening treatment for my curly hair, and get a bright hair colour… seriously bright, like grass green or something like that!
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? 2006? Well, it wasn’t a good year, so I would tell myself: don’t worry, things are going to be just fine. Stop worrying and be in charge of your life.
    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? I like them, on 1.75 mt, slender girls! Which I’m not!
    5. When no one is looking I… dance :D
    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? my MUFE HD foundation! I love it to death — and foundation is my current make-up obsession…
    7. I’m a good friend because… I’m always there for you.
    8. I’m a bad friend because… It’s difficult for me to keep in touch with a lot of people so sometimes I neglect good friends who would deserve more from me.
    9. Hair up or down? down most of the time, because it’s beautiful, but a ponytail is simply convenient sometimes!
    10. Weekly goals: DIET, DIET and some more DIET! I have to lose the weight I gained quitting smoking…

    LOL…
    “that’s Charlene…she’s one of them MTV girls…”

  65. Linnea says:

    1. Mood: Well its Tuesday. So I’m.. ok. It’s FREEZING here, so its not so great when the car starts shuddering when trying to drive. Boo cold. But otherwise, I’m good.
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Either False Lashes or the Pink shadow around the eyes. With my skin tone, it wouldn’t make me look good, but if I was tan and healthy looking, I’d be alll over it.
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? 2006… just graduated high school. Was dating this guy that I stomped ALL over about 6 months later. So I would say APPRECIATE where you are, and what you have. Don’t be jumping any guns. Feel great about yourself.
    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? Leave ‘em. Especially for me, as my love handles are saying a big time no to them, but also I just don’t think they’re an attractive outfit. Even models/attractive celebs kind of look silly in them..
    5. When no one is looking I…Talk to myself? (I guess that’s when no one is around..) When no one is looking, I have serious conversations with my dog, as well as probably dance around a bit.
    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? Vaseline. It was the last thing I put on before I ran out the door! Lips need a barrier at -28 C.
    7. I’m a good friend because… I’ll be there for you even if you’re not there for you. I’m kind of thoughtful.
    8. I’m a bad friend because… I get sucked into my life, and seem to forget about my friends :(
    9. Hair up or down? Up, as it seems to be more comfy for me. Like today, I have my hair down. All nicely styled. But in 2 hours, I’m probably going to want to put it up..
    10. Weekly goals: Work out. Have fun tonight with my girl(we’re having a nail painting party!), and don’t let the fact that the boy is super busy get you down! Oh! And like the new guy at work (he starts today, and he’s going to be my cube buddy.. hopefully he’s not super weird? I can hope right?)

  66. lo says:

    I guess it’s a Tuesday Poll for me :)

    1. Mood: Um, OK. Lots of studying, and I’ve been up since 6, but not bad.
    2. What’s one beauty trend you’d like to try? Anything that requires long hair, since I still don’t have it haha.
    3. Is there anything you’d tell yourself of five years ago? Just shut up and go pre-med… you’re just going to waste time and have to do it anyway. And quit dating tools, geez.
    4. One-piece pant suits: love ‘em or leave ‘em? No thank you!
    5. When no one is looking I… am probably doing something embarrassing, like picking a wedgie or readjusting the girls haha.
    6. Quick! — what’s the first makeup/beauty product that comes to mind? Mascara.
    7. I’m a good friend because… I’m loyal and actually want to be involved in your life.
