The Case against Heavy Makeup

I am a cosmoholic. I admit it. Is there a CAA or something? In any case, somehow my mom and I got into a discussion about makeup. In particular, heavy makeup. We started about talking about how I only have browns for my eyeshadow, and how that didn't quite cut it for parties or dances.

And then, my mom goes: "Why would anyone wear heavy makeup? Isn't it horribly inconvenient? After all, your boyfriend can't kiss you like that, because it'll mess up the makeup! Why would anyone like heavy makeup? Why would any guy like their girlfriend to have heavy makeup?"

I cracked up, naturally. I am a cosmoholic. I love makeup. I love buying makeup, and looking at all the colors. I admit it. But I also dislike heavy makeup. In the day, especially, I like making things look more natural, with a little edge. For parties and stuff, well, make it a little shinier. And so, I also dislike heavy makeup. But it was the first time I had ever heard -that- argument against heavy makeup. And so, I laughed.

Let's Do This

Alright, so I'm starting a blog. Yay. I'm not really sure what I should say here, but, you know what? That's ok.

I guess my first article should just be on what's going on recently. I'm interning at Cisco, which is totally cool. My manager's really nice, and, well, in my opinion, he's a really good manager. He makes sure that he has a meeting once a week (almost missed the first one because I didn't know), and beyond that, has one on one meetings with everyone, not just the interns, every once in a while just to check up on us. When the interns got there, he had projects ready for us, tailored to our personal interests, which I thought was pretty cool, especially since when I chose the group, I chose it because it was the only one without buzzwords in the description.

Ok, enough of that. Cisco is pretty cool and all, but it's not everything.

To everyday life.

I feel kinda bad. I just don't have that... urge to compulsively RP anymore. It's rather horrible! I'm not sure if it's the fact that I don't know the people I'm RPing with, or the posts are boring, or if RPing just isn't me anymore. But I feel bad for the people I'm in threads with. I try to post when I can, but sometimes, I just -stare- at the thread, go "I -need- to post" and then... check my email or something. Absolutely horrible.

What's really sad is that I really really miss MIT. I don't know if it's the college life, or if I just want to get away, but I think, overall, I had more fun last summer than I did this summer. I love my family, don't get me wrong, but sometimes it gets to be too much. Oh well. Don't have to pay for housing or food, which is nice. Very very nice.

Oh well. So that's it for the first post. Perhaps I'll have something more concrete later on.
