Today's lesson: Eyebrow waxing hurts. Not as much as one would expect, but still, it hurts.

Ballroom has made me into a much more looks-conscious person. I would NEVER bother to have my eyebrows waxed if it were not for my coach insisting. Nor, for that matter would I ever spend money to have a properly done manicure, or would I be as careful about having or not having roots in my hair.

I take that back about the hair. I have been dyeing and watching for roots for a long time with that, long before I began dancing. But as for everything else...

Jennifer, my coach, said on Monday that I should have my eyebrows waxed. That she wanted them to have a cleaner line and a better arch and in general a prettier shape so as not to have the bushy mess that I had up until today. I have to admit, I do look better with waxed, tweezed eyebrows, so it was probably worth it to have hairs forcibly ripped out of my head. It doesn't help that I have sensitive skin. It took almost a full two hours for my coloring to return to something resembling normal -- apparently for most people, this process takes only about 5 minutes.

But, the ultimate result is quite pretty and I do, in spite of myself like it because it does open my eyes and make them look bigger and blah de blah de blah.

And to think, I would have never have done it had it not been for ballroom.

In other news, I had a midterm this morning that was a very painful experience. At least I'm not the only person in the class who found it to be a tremendously difficult exam.

Tomorrow's goal is to go and find a pretty top that matches the skirt that I want to wear for Standard this weekend. Preferably a long-sleeved pretty top... hoping for a leotard or something from Capezio or Danskin, but a nice beaded top from one of several other stores up in the garment district will suffice as well.

Time to go rinse away the artificial color that I am adding to my hair.
