The Hair Challenge: The Check in

058At the end of December I decided to do something new I came up with; The Hair Challenge: A (sorta) New Years Resolution, where I said I was going to do one hairstyle for a whole month as sort of a “signature do”. This went pretty well for the first couple of weeks, and then I stopped putting my hair up but as the month comes to an end, I’m finishing off my month like I started it. This month was all about fast and easy buns. Now I did deviate a little from the bun, as I did one day do a half up, half down bun look. It was fun to try and come up with different ways to do buns, one day I ended up making a bun sort of, it wasn’t a bun but it looked like it so I let it go.

Next month for my hair challenge I’ve decided that braids will be my hairstyle for the month. We’ll see how February goes, and I’ll do an update again at the end of the month.


Hot Chocolate: My “Coffee”

The mug I use when I have hot chocolate at home

    Pretty much everyone I know these days drinks coffee; my mom, dad, sister, friends, teacher, and anyone I see on the streets with a mug I assume they’re drinking coffee.

I was never allowed to drink coffee, and even now I don’t. My version of coffee as you all have probably guessed, is hot chocolate. Whenever people ask me why I like and drink hot chocolate so much I like to explain it by simply saying “my hot chocolate is like people drinking coffee.” I give that analogy because its the closest way to explain why I like and drink hot chocolate so much.

Everyone knows atleast one person who drinks coffee atleast once a week, and no one says anything about it because its a common thing most people do. Hot chocolate for me is the same as people drinking coffee, except I don’t drink it everyday, I have certain days I have it, and I don’t have to have it everyday to get me going in the morning.

Hot chocolate is something I really enjoy. My friends and family joke that I’m addicted because I drink it so much, but really its just something I enjoy and hot chocolate is like my coffee, just the difference is I don’t need have it everyday to wake me up.

Hot chocolate is something that makes me really happy and I enjoy drinking it. Its like everything else I enjoy: playing guitar, going to youth group and seeing my friends, I drink it because it tastes really good, and is something I look forward to all the time.
