I know it sounds cliché, but my recent trip to LA has changed me as a person. I've grown immensely as an individual the past weeks and I am loving it. I am seeing a lot of things from a different perspective and I feel like changes need to be made and done.
I'm sitting on my bed right now, looking at the mess that is my room and I feel no inspiration or joy at all. I realise that this is something I've felt for a long time - but have not been able to understand why/what is was. I need a mayor change in my settings or I'm going to become deeply depressed!
Also, I've picked up my driving! And I am kinda enjoying it :D I drove in traffic with my mum the other day and even if it was scary I felt really accomplished afterwards and most importantly - I could do it!
I've changed my hair and feel really good about it - if you follow me on instagram you've seen the images before but I'm going to attach it to this post anyway.
It's an angled bob - inspired my Ingrid Nilsen (missglamorazzi)
And I went for an icier hue of blonde this time. There is a nuance in my hair to keep it from looking brassy which is why it looks silver/gray. It's different and I'm slowly getting into the swing of styling it and finding ways to get it looking chic :D
On a sadder, more depressing note - my external hard drive is failing on me. If you follow my facebook page you will know this story but it is so surreal and sad that I just can't believe it!
I came home from LA and transferred all my files onto my harddrive and did a wipe of my files on my MacBook. basically everything from the past 4 years was on my SeaGate Harddrive. This hard drive has served me well over the years and I have not had any problems with it. Until now. I left my computer on my floor while it was exporting a vlog from iMovie and went about my afternoon. When I returned to the computer it said that I had wrongly ejected the harddrive that was still attached to the computer and I unplugged it and plugged it back in again. And it made a strange clicking noise and then nothing happened. Basically I thought it had crashed and I handed it in to some super nice and techy people where I live, hoping they could salvage something! About 4 hours later they called and it was ready for pick-up! I was overjoyed to plug it back into my MacBook and find all of my files intact!
Yesterday as I'm editing on iMovie, and getting ready to upload yet another LA vlog the notice about wrongly ejecting the harddrive comes up again - while that harddrive is attached and I did not touch it. Upon the unplug and plug in the icon appears and after I clicked to open the finder window it took 4 minutes for that to happen and the hard drive appears to be completely empty!!! Upon investigation I can see that there are still 200GB worth of files on my harddrive, but I can't see them. It sounds like the harddrive is slowly giving up on life and I'm so scared that all my files are going to be lost forever! I am going to buy a new external harddrive and give them both to the techy people and see if there is any way they can transfer the files that apparently still are on the old harddrive, but invisible, onto the new one so that I can see them!!
This turned into a really long post now - and it wasn't supposed to be. Oh well!
