To celebrate the holidays and provide some family merriment since everyone was coming over to my place for Christmas dinner, I enjoyed telling my hair dresser (beautician?), Tracy, to go ahead and color my hair all pink just before Christmas. :) It was something I have wanted to try at least once. Like getting a tattoo. Anyways, my hair looked like sweet pink spun taffy when she was drying it. Lovely! I'm sad that it's fading so fast and my blonde hair is peeping through so quickly. I particularly enjoyed how unnatural the color looked, heh. Left my bangs blonde, too, for a nice contrast.
Next time, tho, I think I want to try more of a pink bundt cake with white frosting instead of the cotton candy look. ha!
Last few days to finish planning my goals and strategies for next year, both personal and for work. Lots of stuff I want to do, including setting a regular exercise routine (again...darn those shrinking jeans!), painting (can't live without it), managing the interns at work (always an intriguing challenge), developing new strategies to improve how the creative team delivers product concepts and how we can all build our creative skills (blah, blah, blah), traveling to Austria and Germany this summer (so exciting!!), getting that more relevant creative role (i.e. better role/job in the industry I want to be a part of), reading my new books...and yes, finally getting my own lot to the publishers for editing/fine-tuning. Some excellent books I got for Christmas - lovely stack for sure! About a mix of 25 fiction and 5 non-fiction books that I will get to read and study at leisure. Mmmm...yummy. Probably will have them all read by March if not sooner.
