I'm that girl...
...cutting across the grass
...wearing a jacket when it's slightly too warm
...hair a shambles, falling into her eyes
...skirt unfashionably long
...shoes unfashionably short
...clutching a binder to her heart
...limping slightly in that way of the academic scurrying out of the sunshine
...hitting herself in the head with her keys when she gets a parking ticket for being too absent-minded to put up her parking permit
If only I wore glasses, right? Or am I hopelessly nerdy enough as it is?
Actually, except for the ticket part I kind of like this persona. I can look cute and normal, but this is my natural degeneration and I am fond of it. I accept this side of me!
...and that's pretty much all I have to say about that.

 Yesterday was one of those hair disasters that happen to me all the time. I wasn't content with how my hair looked when I got to work, so I turned on the webcam and redid it, with only two ponytail holders and two bobby pins to try and tame the beast. It worked okay, but by the time I was wandering across the grass it'd all come loose; my hair was having the grandest time covering my eyes and looking vaguely slovenly no matter what I did. Which wasn't much, since I didn't have any more pins. I've learned to embrace the disaster, but maybe it's time to embrace the usage of hair products.
 The keys were incidental; I was facepalming and my keys just happened to be in my hand. It was really very stupid of me to forget that permit sitting on the seat next to me.
