And here's what's on my nails now.
Sinful Colors Zeus, which is a periwinkle with pinky-coppery shimmer. While I was applying this one I almost couldn't believe it was a drug store polish. It was perfect in two coats and not too thick or too thin. That rarely happens for me with Sinful Colors. I'm really into this one, and I don't think a polish can get much better for $1.99.
I feel like when I started writing this post I was planning on talking about my FEELINGS or something, but now I can't remember what I had in mind. Maybe that in and of itself is indicative of what I'm feeling right now. There is just so much stuff in my head and my mind is constantly racing. I'm not sleeping well at all. I need to just learn to calm the hell down. For example! I got the scores for my comprehensive exams that I was so worried about. Not only did I pass, I "high passed" (which I think means I got a 90% or better). Not only did I high pass, I apparently got the highest score. So I stressed myself out over essentially nothing. Maybe that should be a lesson to me. Que sera, sera and all of that nonsense.
But epiphanies like this don't help my brain to slow down. They don't help numb me from all of the bad things I've been feeling for the past week. I wish that my emotions had an on/off switch. I've been doing my best to laugh as much as I can, and I do think that's helping. It has to be the little things that help us through, right? But when the day ends and I crawl into bed, all I really want is to be lying next to someone who loves me. If you have that you're so lucky. But maybe finding happiness within myself is what's important? I really have no idea at this point. I hope things get easier.
But you guys really did help, and you're all wonderful. Now, what do you think of Zeus?
