When I lived in the US, I had my hair highlighted every three or four months. I would do it here if I could, but blond doesn’t seem to be an option in Hokkaido. After being here over a year now, it is much more grey and much less blond. In addition to not having it highlighted, I hadn’t had it trimmed since I left the US and the ends were getting rather ragged. My friend Alicia brought her hair scissors and evened up the ends for me. I wish it were so easy to fix the color.
I’ve written before about reading books on my iPod. Being very frugal, I download the free books and have been happy with the number of books I have to choose from that don’t cost anything. I just finished The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells. I read it when I was much younger but had forgotten much of it. It’s a quick read. If you haven’t read it, or if it has been a long time since you have, read it.
