Don't Panic

vintage dress from Cream Vintage, tights from Marshalls,

I can't believe there are only a few weeks left before the semester ends. It feels weird knowing that after the Christmas break, I won't be back in a classroom. I actually have no idea what I'll be doing. I'm trying not to let it scare me, but for the first time in my life, I don't have a plan. I know this is supposed to be an exciting time in my life, but it's hard not to get all panicky about the fact that I still have to pay the rent and bills. If I don't find a full-time job soon, I'm probably going to have to get a second part-time job. That's all right with me, but at the same time, is this what I spent four and a half years going to college for?

On a lighter note (literally and metaphorically), can you tell I attempted to ombré my hair? I'll admit that I actually didn't even know what ombré hair was until I stumbled upon some random article last week. I'd seen quite a few girls with it recently, but never realized it was an actual hair style you could request at a salon. I thought everyone was just growing out their hair color and the result was surprisingly cool. I obsessed about it for a whole day, watched a zillion YouTube videos, and finally decided I wanted to attempt it myself. I bought a bleach blond highlighting kit from CVS after work and lightened just the ends of my hair. I am pretty pleased with the results because they aren't overwhelming. In fact, I'm thinking about redoing it again in a week or so to make it lighter and a little higher up.

What do you think? Is it cool or does it just look like I really need a trim?
