Morning pumpkin spice coffee in a Jack the Pumpkin King mug.
I’m up early and you know….I’m not dreading going to work. I think I needed these past 2 days to be shoved into my position on my own. I very clearly made a mental choice on Monday; I was about to send a worrying text message to my coworker that I’m taking over for asking if what I was saying in a particular email was okay.
And yesterday I sat down and worked through a problem with my team leader and she was so lovely and so helpful, and then another team that we work with were all amazing and had my back when no one else was in the building and I had to get an emergency done. Overall, despite my fears, everyone has been very welcoming and very supportive and they’ve all let me know “No, we’re here if you have questions, you can ask us anything”.
And this has been your (oddly becoming regular….) Wednesday check in!
This morning’s chapter of the unattractive picture chronicles:
It’s too early for this shit.
I have approximately 1 hour to arm myself for today’s battle at work.
For all the confidence I had yesterday, this is about how much I have today.
I’m stressed out and overwhelmed and I don’t want to disappoint anybody. I’m afraid and I feel pulled in 20 different directions.
This is the sweetest compliment ever ;_____;
Except when I cried at my desk. But I only cried a little bit, and my eyeliner didn’t budge, so I still win.

Today is the day.
I’ve been putting this off because not only is it good to wait as long as you can after a stressful chemical process, but my hair is reeeeeeally white. And the blue is verrrrryyyyyyy blue…..
So either nothing will happen, or I may come out of the shower later with most of my hair a pastel blue color….
It’s a good thing my work doesn’t care about my blue hair!! In fact it was a topic of delightful conversation at my team meeting, where I am by far the youngest attendee.
Tagged as: personal, blue hair, i was actually really expecting to get yelled at at work when I did this to my hair, but nope.... all anyone has said is OH MY GOD I LOVE IT,

SERIOUS Headstand Progress!!!
I know it seems ridiculous, but in 5 days, this is how much progress I’ve made on my headstand. I’m still working on straightening, but going up feels weightless now.
I’m SO happy right now, you don’t even understand.
To all my fellow yoga lovers - it really is true; if you practice you can achieve almost anything. When I began yoga, I really didn’t think I’d ever be able to do any inversions, and here I am!

This is rreeeeally useful, actually, seeing this in a video. My issue with inversions is that I never know when my legs are straight up. When *I* feel like they’re straight they’re usually not even close (as seen here), and when they GET close, I feel like I’m too far forward.
It’s learning and it’s a process and I’m proud of myself. Now to go practice some pincha!!!
(Sorry for the really loud Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeros, this song is part of my morning yoga playlist :P)
Oh yeah, that’s Milo walking behind me going “you are strange, temporary mama human”
