E.M.’s Rambles ~ #EM-SRP 21

Hey everyone! I am actually having a more normal Sunday. Yesterday, I was able to get my hair done by my favorite hair guy. My hair was in bad shape after my last appointment with my other stylist. I feel and look completely different. It was a makeover.

Before:

That’s me with no hat and no shirt πŸ˜€

This is the after πŸ™‚


Now that I am done showing off my new hair, LOL, it’s time to ramble happiness to all of you amazing people!

1. What is at least one thing that makes you happy today?

My hair was the first thing that made me happy. It had been an uphill battle growing it out to cut it. The second thing that made me happy was the fact I am here today being able to blog instead of the usual hustle and bustle of my hectic schedule.

2. What is one thing that happened last week that made you feel positive and happy?

I was able to practice with my team for my conference. We are almost to the time of meeting with legislators, and it’s been a learning experience for me. I have been a leader before, but normally I am just happy to participate in the conference. When approached to be a lobby captain, I was afraid that my lack of experience would be a crutch, but I volunteer with some very amazing people. That makes me feel more positive than anything. We are finding voices for people who have never had one.

3. What is your positive personal mantra? (Mantra means β€œa statement or slogan repeated frequently” via Oxford Dictionary.)

“And if at first you don’t succeed, then dust yourself off and try again…”

(Aaliyah, 2000)

It’s been the story of my life, and it feels good to sing that song when there is a possibility that I will fail.

4. What is the nicest act you secretly did for someone?

I always attempt to do things in secret, like for birthdays and surprises for people. My problem is that I suck at keeping my own secrets. I suppose the nicest act I have done in secret is feed people. We had a spaghetti dinner fundraiser at the end of my time at my college with my local PTK chapter. I bought up as many meals as I could, and when we left…I drove around for two hours finding homeless people that looked like they needed a hot meal in their tummies. It felt good. The sad part is that not everyone appreciated what I was doing, and a week later, one of the people I fed tried to break into my car at the train station when I went to Oakland.

5. What is one hobby you would like to try?

When I was in school, I loved doing the poetry unit in Art. I would love to get a pottery wheel and get back to it.

Bonus Question: What is your go-to song to belt out in the shower?

It would definitely be this one:

  1. Oakland is a very bad place to leave anything of value lying in plain sight in a car. One of my siblings had the window smashed on his rental while he was in a diner eating breakfast. He said he wanted to sit by the window to be able to watch his car (the rental), and the waitress refused to let him. When he came out, his laptop was gone as well as his overnight bag. There wasn’t anything else of value in there though. I said he ought to call the police and report that waitress because that’s peculiar behavior (to me). And I LOVED the hair! Your eyes are gorgeous too! What a nice make over for you! πŸ™‚

    1. It definitely is not the place to drive your own car with valuables in it. When I was up there last, back in July, my friend’s and I were eating at Everett & Jones. I went out for a smoke, along with this very obnoxiously drunk girl (not by my own choice πŸ˜€ ). Next thing I know, a black car drove up, dude got out, and busted the back window on a BMW suv. I was shocked at first, but I opened my big mouth and yelled at him. It stopped him and he left, but he circled a few times. Sadly, when you call the police in Oakland, they do not come unless someone is dying…and that is still not a guarantee. We were two blocks from the police station, and someone had called. I started to go inside, and they were like “Hey you are a witness! Don’t leave!” I laughed, “I said unless you are laying in the street dying in a rich neighborhood, no one is coming.” I was right…We were there another hour and a half…no cops lol.

      I’m sorry that happened to one of your siblings. Hopefully they were able to recover the money from the theft with insurance. I definitely would have reported the waitress.

      Thank you so much for the love on my hair and eyes too πŸ™‚ It feels so good to be a new me again! I appreciate you, Melanie πŸ™‚
