A Day in the Life: February 2016
I didn’t do this thing last month, and I considered backdating, but that felt too much like cheating. For the most part, I busied myself with doing various other things that were not specifically this blog. I had a dry skin spat with the backs of my hands, which turned into what I can only assume was an allergic reaction, and am finally [slowly] healing. A few times throughout January, I wondered if it was possible to overdose on hydrocortisone cream, but then realised I didn’t want to run out too quickly—and opted out of just using the cream as if it’s lotion.
For the most part, the burning sensation is gone, and I can type as I wish. The backs of my hands just feel like sandpaper, and there’s only so much lotion I can apply, especially since I can’t let it touch my face.
Outfit of the day
I wore my turquoise “Hakuna Matata” crop top with a tie front, a black camisole underneath the top, and my black shorts. The black shorts actually have this colorful tribal-looking patterned band that is a pink-to-lime green gradient, you just can’t often see it with what I’m wearing, because I dislike tucked-in tops and tend to wear shirts/tops that are longer than the waistband of my pants/shorts. 🙂
My hair was wrapped in a bun and held together by a small clip. I’ve found it’s slightly easier than a hair tie and keeps it from forming a thousand boing-y curls. It’s quite easy to keep it up and out of the way, too…unless the clip breaks.
It was chilly outside today, which is kinda a big thing coming from me, because cold weather doesn’t usually bother me.
Just before writing this, I was…
I ate ____ today.
A bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It’s not my go-to cereal, but it was in the pantry, and I wanted at least one bowl of it, since I tend to want some at random, but don’t feel like eating a whole box.
TIL (today I learned)
I can compare almost anything to TV or movies.
Other stuff I did today
- Updated my about and contact pages on 6birds; I also worked on some of the categories and tags.
- Listened to “Invincible” by Ruelle and made adjustments to the choreography I made for it. :3
- Drank more soda than I should have.
What I could have done better
- Written more of an eBook I’m working on.
- Bitten my fingernails less (still working on this).
- Applied more lotion to my hands.
- Laundry. I did zilch.
Tomorrow I need to…
- …do laundry.
- …change my [bed] sheets.
- …vacuum my room.
How was your day?
