Lots of news..crying, pottery, the surprise..EVERYTHING!!!

Hello darling, Im sooo very sorry its been soo long since Ive written to you, I have been so busy this week with school..so many test and paper due..Im so very sorry..ohh and I have some bad news, im not gonna have the surprise anytime soon..ill just let you in on the surprise because you will not be angry at me for not having it soon..;p Im making some awesome pottery in my pottery class, and I wanted to give a piece away, so Ive been working really hard at making it really pretty (this is the first time in my life that Ive EVER made pottery).. (picture found on google)
so Ive been working at it, re-doing it, and working on it some more..so we were supposed to glaze them, but my school still has not sent our class the glazes, so were just waiting around for the glazes to finish our pottery..so I swear I will still give one away, but I have no clue how long it will take, depends on my school..so I swear I did not forget, in fact it has been driving me nuts..haha but enough about that..I hope everyone is doing great, and getting in the Halloween spirit, I know I am..I bought a pair of orange and black stripped socks..I love them..they look something like these..


and I have been wearing them around like a little girl..haha (talk about get some stares..haha)..Speaking of all things HALLOWEEN, one of my favorite blogger, is hosting a Halloween party..you should definitely check it out..

Im so excited about it, she always has the best parties..

ohh before I forget..I have something to tell you..Ive been working on another little project, my very own "HowTo" website..right now I just have a video of how to style bangs, but Im going to put up alot of videos on how to do makeup correctly (Ive been in MaryKay cosmetics for 7 years now, and I grew up around makeup my whole life) so I know some tips and tricks..and after watching videos of girls pulling out eyelashes, and damaging hair, I decided it was my turn to give tips on doing makeup and hair (with out the damage..haha) so you can check me out on there too..ok so now that all of that is said..how was your week?? anything exciting happen while I was gone?? unusual maybe?? well today was one of those days where somethings happen and makes you feel insignificant..you know what I mean?? for example, I was driving to school early this morning (and I was late for class) and Im going down the street in downtown, when I looked over and saw a homeless man (not unusual to see in downtown) but when I really looked at him, he was walking fast and had his hands across his face, crying...it broke me heart, I actually teared up when I saw that..but I couldnt do anyting at that moment (I was down a one way street, that is super long) so reluctantly I had to keep driving..then it made me think, "Wow..there are so many problems in this world, I have NOTHING to complain about..so what that I have a tummy ache, so what that Im late, so what that Im having a bad hair day..there are people out there with serious problems.." so after feeling so guilty for not stopping and maybe giving him a hug, or just talk to him, I went to class, and we didnt even have class because our glazes are not in yet..haha so I just went home, and now Im here telling you all about it..so what would you have done?? would you have stopped?? given him a hug?? or just talk to him?? or would you have just given money?? I hate that I havent done something, I know I should have..but I have to stop beating my self up about it..so thats what I meant by insignificant feeling..so anyways, on a happy note, my darling little squirrel is going to be free in a week..Ohhh my goodness, what am I going to do with out my new little pet?? but he will do soo good in the real world..and Im kind of relived to let him be free..he seems to LOVE to chew on WIRES..ohh yeah, you heard me right, live wires..my lights, my laptop charger, EVERYTHING..its horrible, so he will have lots to chew on when he is released..but he will be missed..haha ok, I just found this picture on google, it is the cutest thing I have EVER seen...


Dont you just love it..you want to squeeze those chubby little cheeks..hehe ok darling, Im going to play with my little squirrel and do some homework..Ill come back soon..I promise..and I will keep you updated on the "surprise"..haha ok darling, take care, and tell me what you've been up to lately, I feel so left behind since I havent been here in awhile...

I have been wanting to try pottery for so long, are you loving it? Hope your glazes come soon!

I'm completely in the Halloween spirit too, I just wish it would cool off here a little bit.

Congratulations on your "how to" web-site, it sound wonderful!

You know, I'm not sure what I would have done if I saw a homeless man crying...it's such a personal moment, my guess is I would have hesitated doing anything ~ but definitely heartbreaking.

Keep us posted on your sweet little squirrel's progress!

I can't wait to see your pottery!

I was so touched by your story about the homeless man. I think I have tried to steel myself against seeing it, but it doesn't feel natural to turn your back when you see suffering does it? I think we've been led to believe that some people are just con artists...but really, some aren't. It's always hard to see someone cry though and not reach out a hand to just let them know they're not alone.

Good luck to the sweet squirrel...

Lots of news in your corner of the world. It's been a while since I've been by--life gets too crazy sometimes!
The socks are so fun!
And I'd love to learn from your how-to site...sounds great!

A friend of mine works with the homeless and she suggests buying coupons from McD's etc. to give away to people you see. Just an idea.
Take care!
