What I’ve Been Wearing…

To work and to my high school practicum (pretty much student teaching).  It’s super fast, super easy, and I get compliments on it all the time.  This is how I do it:

(I’m sorry for the sucky blog updating I’ve been doing.  I have so much going on right now that it’s hard to put everything in perspective.  I’ll be back soon…updating you on what I have been doing this entire time.)

((One thing I HAVE been doing a lot of is reading!  I finished “Eldest” this morning, and also started “Brisingr”.  I’m about 150 pages in and I’m going to read some more when I head to bed.  My list of books read this year is growing by the day…I love it!))

(((I also picked up another book while at the library, called “Adam & Eve“.  The back of the book was so exciting, and I couldn’t resist.  I’m hurrying through “Brisingr” so I can start it sooner!)))



So, next week, on Tuesday, is my 19th birthday.  For as long as I can remember, I jumped around, counted down the days, and told EVERYBODY when it was.

This year, I haven’t.  The whole season has been going by so fast, and it’s hard to keep track of the days.  I’m going to be 19 in about a week, and I’m not excited.  It’s my first birthday away from home, and it’s a little intimidating.

On the other hand, I FINALLY got my Avon site up and running (here it is), but my last name is SPELLED WRONG.

So, go forth and buy from Cassandra Ousnemer.  She’s a nice girl.

(The link to the site is also in the “More Me” tab.)

(Don’t mind the major breakout under my lip.  I was too lazy to put makeup on.  Also, you can see the annotations on YouTube.  The URL is in the “More Me” tab, as I’ve already mentioned.)

Non-Video Update :)

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve actually posted a blog, but I’ve been hooked by doing videos!  They’re so much faster to do, and you can see me talking.  But I miss the way I relax when I write a blog.  Everything comes out much better.

So, if you have been watching the video updates, you’ll know that I got the yarn I ordered.  I’m so excited about starting the beret, but I need to have my needles first (hint, hint Pat!).  (I thought I did a post about it, but I guess that was just a video.)

But anyways, after classes this morning (I woke up at about 7.45, for my 8 a.m. class, and just barely got there on time..) I came back to my room, checked my Facebook, and then crawled into bed and took a nice, long, relaxing nap.  Then Kyle called, and insisted that I go eat with him.

We’re going to go to the library later, because from my last real text post, I showed you all the books I have, and one of them is due in a few days.  I want to get it back before I get fined for it.  It is Clan of the Cave Bear, and I feel some loss (although I’ve read it before), because I’m not able to start reading it.  I know if I started it right now, I could finish it before it’s due on Friday.  I don’t have class until 4 tomorrow, so I’d have plenty of time, but I need to get other things going, such as my Avon site, which I’ve been having some trouble with.

But oh, how I want to relax with my favorite book of all time…The story just whisks me away, and I could use some whisking away right now.

Youtube (and Ebay) Obsessed

So for the past couple of days, the reason I haven’t been blogging is because I’ve been watching YouTube videos.  This channel in particular.  I’m not sure why, because I’ve never really been that interested in make-up, but the video tutorials on how to do certain looks really fascinate me.  Not only that, but the girl (Jenny Shoop) is so adorably awkward sometimes, and it makes me laugh.

Because of her “Pigments!” video, I signed up on Ebay, and I’ve been searching for deals.  I actually got the same set that she uses (and spills!) in the video.  Also, I bid on several sets of brushes before I learned that once you bid, if you win, you have to buy.  It’s not like each set was a hundred dollars, but they aren’t crap either.  So I may end up with a bunch of makeup brushes, if so, that may turn into a stash for giveaways…

Does anyone have other giveaway ideas?  I’ve always wanted to do one…

P.S.  If you have a YouTube account, you should subscribe to her channel.  When she gets to 500 subscribers, she’s giving away MORE stuff!  The first giveaway, she gave out so much makeup it was insane.


*Edited to add:  Kyle is taking me to Brookfield Zoo tomorrow, and even though there aren’t any hyenas there, I’m super excited!  I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures (polar bear pictures for my brother :) ), and I’ll show you how my day goes :)
