So I was invited to go apple picking with my sister and her fiance. By the end,all the apples pretty much looked the same except for these gorgeous ones pictured.

Life Update

Work:
1. Due to some awesome union disputes at the organization where I was working I couldn’t be made permanent and they have a clause limiting the length of months for temporary staff so I started job hunting again.


2. I found out I didn’t get the Maine job but I have another interview set up for Monday in downtown Manhattan. Its a one year consulting contract position but at this point in this market I’m not picky.
Tuesday,I have a writing skills test for a vacancy at EDNY (another court) in Brooklyn.

J:
It’s pretty much business as usual with us. Right now I’m listening to dancehall and surfing tumblr and J.’s playing a new game (bc he has something against headsets. I can hear every time he dies and every conversation he has with his teammates).

Etc:
I’ve been thinking about the fact that I’m turning 27 soon. I’m going to do a 30 b4 30 list. Nothing too crazy but a good balance of big and small goals. So I can look back and think I did more than worry about the next paycheck.

Hair trial 
I tried the barrel updo but I couldn’t make them look right so I figured I would put them in some pinwheels and see what the curls look like.

Pros:
- I got big loose curls which I wanted versus the tight coils I did for Cynths wedding. ( J. asked why they have to be different. :/ They just do. )
-They are/ will be fancy enough to contend with updos. 

Cons:
-The curls are inconsistent based on where they were in the barrel. With super curly ones from the top and slight curls on the bottom. 

Tips for next time:
-Tighter barrels
-more water
-pipe cleaners and rods for backup semi quick curls
