Am I upset by this? Yes. Am I surprised by this? Nope.
Living in Utah this is what we get: hot dry summers / long cold miserable winters (sorry for being a Debby Downer, not a fan of winter).
Don't get me wrong, I love snow...for Christmas, and then skiing in January. But Utahans get royally screwed now with the once four seasons. We never get spring anymore...and barely did get a summer this year. It was cold rain every single day. Felt as though I lived in Washington or Oregon. I swear our weather is bipolar. This Monday the temperature outside was 83 degrees. Yesterday was cold and rainy...I like the rain, so I can deal. What I can't deal with is snow. RIGHT NOW. I'm sure we'll have plenty of months of it, but we barely got a week of fall/autumn. Nope. Nope NOPE Mother Nature stop it!
This better be a fluke. That's all I have to say about that.
Anyways, enough of the ranting and raving - nothing I can do to change the weather...wouldn't it be cool if I could though?...
Thanks for all of your nice comments on Monday when I was feeling down. They made me smile. Unfortunately, I wish I could report that the week turned out better. Not really...and not just counting the snow.
I got my hair done yesterday, something I love to do, and it definitely turned out bad. This rarely happens. I was going to do a whole post on my new hair (because I know you all care so much), but I am so upset about it, nope. No new post.
I was ready for that "fall" low-light coloring. Back to brunette if you will, but I still wanted some of my blond to peek through. So mainly, weave some dark in there. What do I have now? Dark roots and it fades to all blond on the bottom. Basically look like trailer trash in my opinion. I like the "melt," I do. But on me, well it doesn't look good..especially like this. So I should just have her fix it, but my girl kind of scares me sometime hahaha... whoops. So I might have my good friend fix it. I just want some more dark weaved on the bottom and it will be all solved. I wish I could just do it myself, but the world doesn't work that way does it??
I guess the whole week hasn't been that terrible. I've spent a lot of time with good friends lately, and good friends are worth smiling about in my opinion.
You want to make the most of your time on earth I think. So sitting there feeling sorry for yourself isn't going to get you anywhere. I've really learned that this week. Even though it hasn't been the best of all weeks, it's one week. It's one week I've learned a lot. I need to go after my dreams and do what I love to do.
Sadly, a life was lost yesterday...and an amazing one at that: Steve Jobs.
He also said if you have a dream...follow it. And you should always do what you love. I think the world lost an amazing person; least he left a mark on it.
Here are some quotes by Steve:
"The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it into a nationwide communications network. We're just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people--as remarkable as the telephone."
"Picasso had a saying: 'Good artists copy, great artists steal.' We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas...I think part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians, poets, artists, zoologists and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world."
"[Y]ou can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something -- your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
"My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people."
