I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead

This morning I slept through 4 alarms. I woke up to the sound of my roommate moving about the apartment which is not something that happens before 6am. And even 6am is sleeping in for me. Not to mention 6:25 which is when I woke up with the stark realization that today’s nerdy hair would not be accomplished in the short time I had to get myself ready for work.

Sad news!! I had to leave the house with completely unextraordinary hair. Which for me, being right in the middle of a blog series, was very disappointing! And why is it that when one thing goes wrong, everything seems to at once. I was completely bad moody the entire commute to work. And in the middle of silently railing against a particularly slow walker, I thought to myself… You can either let this be your mood.. or you can change your attitude. (And I didn’t even make it rhyme on purpose!!)

I live by a motto, especially during 30 Days of Nerdy Hair, “Sleep when you’re dead!” There is too much in life to do and enjoy to waste it on sleeping or to waste it on being in a bad mood! Now, of course we all need sleep to rejuvenate our bodies. To rest our weary heads. And clearly my body knew more than I did, for it took the opportunity to turn off 4 alarms in a 45 minute time span and then place my phone under my pillow. Well played, tired body… well played!! But that will not effect the rest of my day!! It won’t. And if you are having a rough morning, I hope you are able to rally and get back in the race with a smile on your face! (I’m freakin’ Dr. Seuss today!!)

Tomorrow I will be back to my early morning wake up call as usual. Until then enjoy this recap of nerdy hair styles and head over to You Tube, Instagram and/or Twitter for more fun content!

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 7: Lorraine McFly from Back to the Future

Is there a nerd alive that doesn’t love Back to the Future. It’s got everything you could want in a movie: time travel, mad scientists, 50’s nostalgia and awesome hair. (Maybe one day I’ll recreate Doc Brown’s!) But today is young Lorraine McFly’s day. Played by Lea Thompson.

This is a fun and easy one. I started by attacking my hair with my Chi straightening iron. Curls are the order of the day. Then I added a little Big Sexy Hair spray for volume. Next I pinned up ONE side and in lieu of baby’s breath,  I used little pearl hair sticks to mimic her hair accessory.
Then I donned my fancy dress and headed off the the dance… no wait I just got dressed in regular clothes and went to work. But in my head, I’m going to a dance. Fantasy is so much better than reality!!
