And a crappy macro.
This polish is a chameleon and really is unique. I can't think of anything else close to this; not that I own, anyway. It's a bronze foil-ish base, but it sparkles red, green, pink and gold. It looks in the bottle like it may be a duochrome, but it's really not. Sometimes it has a sort of pink cast, but not duochrome quality. Still, this one is a stunner. I used two coats and I was good to go. The formula was great and it dried really fast. Like everyone else who seems to have reviewed this, I can't recommend it enough. Plus the name is adorable. Makes me feel like cuddling my teddy bear (yes, I still have one) while I snuggle under a blanket. Mmm, I love wintertime.
So. I didn't post much last week because it was possibly the worst week I've ever had. I don't want to elaborate and bore you, but for some reason I just totally hit my breaking point. I've had a really difficult semester. An internship, two seminars, French (until recently), co-chairing a symposium, applying for doctoral programs, teaching...and I was handling it all pretty well. And then a few things happened that upset me and I crashed and burned. I was trying really hard this semester to sort of take everything in stride and not be so freaked out and stressed all the time. I tried to spend time with my boyfriend, not take everything so seriously, keep things in perspective. I tried not to complain and be angsty so much on here. Well, it worked for a good solid thirteen weeks. But no more, friends. No more. Actually, I think I've hit a weird point of numbness. I plowed through the weekend, working as much as I could, writing as much as I could. I decided that when the semester ends (December 19th) I am going to my parents' lake house. I'm taking nothing but giant sweaters, tights, comfy pajamas, and a book (well, probably my computer; who are we kidding). I am going to not do anything but sleep. And watch tv (I don't have one). And fall asleep while watching tv. And read sometimes. But mostly sleep.
The countdown is on. December 19th. I have to finish two papers about two paintings. And I can do it. I think.
