Wearing glasses for distance stuff when I'm tired has made my eyes lazy, and now stuff is out of focus allllll the time. Disapprove.

Coconut oil?


Great suggestion, but I used the last of my coconut oil for a stir-fry a few days ago (I use the same coconut oil for cooking purposes and for lip-moisturizing purposes. . . is that gross? That's probably gross.).

Good to know! It really isn't gross, I'm just weird about stuff like that. Like, if someone else rubbed coconut oil on their heels or something, and then "double dipped" their hand into the tub of coconut oil, and then I ate something cooked with oil from the same tub, I'd be a bit skeeved out. But yeah, I'm not a coconut oil double-dipper, so it's a moot point anyway.

To lily and anyone else who gets caught without lip balm and is desperate - if you have any natural oil on your face (try your forehead) rub one finger on it then rub onto your lips - it's the best thing!

No lie someone told me about this in eighth grade and it has saved my life* on a few occasions. I do try to carry chapstick most of the time though.

*mild exaggeration

My henna has faded and for the first time in fourteen years I don't really have red hair. I feel so plain! My natural hair colour sucks and has like no pigment. Poor baby.

I dyed my hair yesterday and today I went swimming because it was 100 degrees out. It's almost completely faded :( :(

I feel ya! I went in the ocean this weekend and it forked up my dye so much I didn't feel entirely comfortable going out in public until I'd fixed it.

It was worth it though. Great thing about hair color is you can redo it!

I have to keep my hair its natural colour because I cannot make myself buy a wig the same cut, colour, and texture of my current hair.

Suddenly want bright reddish/magenta hair again and now's the time to do it since I don't have to work for 4 weeks. Afterwards I can put brown over it again! If only I could remember the brand of dye I used to use 10 years ago! It was such an awesome colour.

I just had the absolute dumbest, most ridiculous and whiniest of all dumb, ridiculous, whiny "problems." I want to watch Bond movies and just got annoyed that I can't watch them on Netflix or through my Apple TV and would have to get up, find the DVDs, and switch my HDMI cables to plug in my dvd player (I could actually use help here, so I should have decided on this before my dad went to bed. My bad leg balance isn't quite good enough for behind the TV contortions, but I'll figure it out). And find the DVD remote.

Then I had a good laugh over being so completely ridiculous for being seriously upset about this, so I feel better and cheered up now. A dose of Daniel Craig will help too! (Casino Royale)

I still have to find that remote though. Where could it be...

Yeeah I'm working on that now. I'm amazed by people with really long hair in beautiful bright colors, because I have a rather short pixie cut and between the first coloring and this touch up, I've used an entire little pot of Manic Panic.

Seeing a bunch of "National Ice Cream Day"-related posts on Facebook is making me really want ice cream, but I don't have any ice cream, and I'm too lazy to leave the house.

Damn. My favorite ice cream pint flavor is no longer available. (So I have to buy other awesome flavors by that company ... but damn! Orange blossom jasmine tea coconut ice cream was THE BEST and I'm sad I can't eat it again.)

Am I the only one feeling a bit apprehensive about the term first world problems? Like even when I lived in India, Tanzania or Vietnam I had many of these annoying problems. No place in the world really has a monopoly on them, and to state that is sort of not viewing other places than the 'developed' world as whole, and erasing a lot of people's troubles, small as they might be. It's a bit racist. I really hate how widespread the term is cause it's actually really ignorant.

Just about every 10 pages or so. I think it always ends up being "Pesky small problems that you have while acknowledging extreme privilege at calling these your problems" was too long of a subject line.

Lyrawr, you're not the first person to mention that the term is problematic, it gets a pretty thorough going over further up thread. I don't think anyone would object if the title were changed to something like 'trivial problems' but it needs a mod to make that decision.
