The Most WTF Lines from Last Night’s Debate

These would be hilarious if he wasn’t running for president. And yes, they are all from Trump. All quotes were taken from this NPR transcript.

 

1. On Hillary’s plan to fight ISIS:

DONALD TRUMP: “… No wonder you’ve been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.”

Um, ISIS hasn’t been around that long.

 

2. On the allegation that he hasn’t paid his taxes:

HILLARY CLINTON: “… Or maybe he does not want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he has paid nothing in federal taxes because the only years that anybody has ever seen for a couple of years where he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license. And they showed he did not pay any federal income tax.”

DONALD TRUMP: “That makes me smart.”

No, if that’s true, it makes you a criminal.

My Experiment with DIY Wash-Out Pastel Hair Dye

My Experiment with DIY Wash-Out Pastel Hair Dye

I get really bored when it comes to my hair and I’ve always wanted fun, pastel colored hair. In high school I had blue hair for a few weeks, but as a responsible adult with a job in a corporate firm, the fun colors would not fly. Then this summer I came up with the idea of trying a hair dye that washed out in a few days so I could have fun weekend hair.

 

I did some Googling and came across tons of praise for the temporary Water Color Hydrating Color Mask that is sold by Urban Outfitters. Unfortunately it was sold out so I kept looking for other options.

 

Then I saw this awesome blog post on how to make your own wash-out hydrating dye mask at home. The dye was supposed to wash out in 3 days, be gentle on your hair,  and seemed very easy to make so I decided to give it a try. I had a long weekend coming up, with a Dave Matthews concert, and I thought it would be the perfect occasion to have have lavender hair. I’d also like to note that I had a hair appointment later in the week so if it turned out to be a mess, I could get by with it up in a ponytail for a few days. I wasn’t sure it was even going to work.

Let’s be honest, our society is not the most understating, accepting, or even educated when it comes to mental illness. Even typing “mental illness” in relation to myself is terrifying. At this point, 9 years later, I still think I am different from those suffering from mental illness. They have serious problems, mine is minor. But I am one of those people, and my problem isn’t minor.

DIY Fold-Over Elastic Hair Ties

 DIY Fold-Over Elastic Hair Ties

I’ve been using the fold-over elastic hair ties for years now and I love them. They are gentler on your hair than traditional hair ties and minimize hair breakage. The only thing is, I always lose them, often to one of the cats the like to steal them. I decided instead of paying $5 for 5 hair ties, I’d spend $5 and make 20 myself.
