Neither of my parents inherited the red hair, but my mum always suspected it would come through in our generation (is hasn't, except in my little brother's beard - why is beard hair often a different colour to head hair?) But for a year now I've been dying my dark blonde/light brown hair auburn with henna, and I often get comments from relatives about how red hair is in the family and how natural it looks on me.
Second story: at my high school there was an incredibly pretty girl with long ginger hair that grew into natural ringlets (I ended up developing kind of a crush). One of the teaching assistants, who was doing A level Art in her spare time) once painted her in Pre-Raphaelite style leaning wistfully against a tree or something.
Found out at the polls today that I've mysteriously disappeared from the electoral register.
Calming gifs please?
The thing is, I find social situations hard, and alcohol really helps with that. But once I start drinking, I don't want to stop, because it feels great... until it doesn't.
It's not like I'm an alcoholic, because I can go for weeks or months without drinking sometimes. I just have this problem with self-control.
I've got a ticket to the moon / I'll be leaving here any day soon/ I've got a ticket to the moon / But I'd rather see the sun rise / In your eyes
I've got a ticket to the moon / I'll be rising high above the earth so soon / And the tears I cry might turn into the rain / That gently falls upon your window / You'll never know
if memory serves
I'm so relieved that we've finally secured it, but now I have to worry about the letting agents possibly screwing us over by trying to charge us for reference checks (which is illegal in Scotland). But they're not technically doing the illegal thing, they're like 'either pay £40 (plus VAT!) each for our reference checks, or provide [long list of documents and references] within 4 working days'. Which... is not feasible. Some of that stuff has to come from my guarantor's HR department, that's completely out of my control.
So idk what I'm going to do but I'm sure as heck not paying £50 for a reference check. They're just going to have to wait for my references to come through in their own time. At least I'm pretty sure now we have paid part of the deposit they can't renege on their end of the deal.
Being the lead tenant I feel a certain responsibility to prevent my friends from being screwed over but I feel weird about going against the wishes of (people I'm conditioned to think of as) authorities.
Sorry for hijacking your post with my rant. Best of luck with your house sale! Do you know where you will be moving to?
