You may have noticed that I am no longer hiding my face on this blog. The reason is, I do not break any rule of the public service as a civil servant. I also write this blog in English and never use my real name, address or mention where I work.
I did my nails at last. Nothing much thrilling to talk about. I go to the sales and eat out from time to time. Haven’t been able to reach my ill friend for a while, I try to tell myself that’s she’s just on holiday.
I have bad dreams, some more pleasant, I have bad moods, then better ones, I’m just alive, that’s it.
I keep losing weight. It’s not too bad ATM but I must stop this loss and manage to at least maintain. I have lost my apetite; but getting sick won’t help her heal. I would give my life for hers but it’s not the way it works. On the contrary, I must – and I promised her to – take care of myself and cling to life, just like she too, promised me to.
I dressed alternative/personal style though I wasn’t willing to at first. But taking care of me starts with taking care of my appearance. I even put some make up.
I love her so much, I don’t want to lose her.
Sometimes you need to focus on mundane things like doing your nails to feel a lil bit better and think less about what’s hurting you.
I literally harrassed a former teach and friend on the FB instant message because she would not answer and I thought she was mad at me for whatever reason. She was just über busy! I apologized using the word “sorry” 3 times in the same sentence and I am going to give her a break for a while.
I use vegan/cruelty-free cosmetics as much as I can. For this home-made manicure I used transparent and white Zao nail polish. The brand is certified organic and cruelty-free which I hope it really is. Actually, the shop assistant was honest and told me than nail varnish can’t be labelled as “organic”. They only contain fewer chemicals than the classic ones (no paraben, toluen free etc.)
I also used nail stickers that are not organic at all but I don’t think nail stickers are tested on animals. -_-
Yesterday my mum gently accepted my request to decorate my nails after she offered me nail stickers for Easter (besides chocolate, of course!).
She’s not pro but she’s not bad at it at all and I’m satisfied with the outcome:
