Yet again...

So, we had a big departmental meeting this week - two and a half days of togetherness.

I spent several weeks dreading it, and when all is said and done, I had a lovely time.

Although, I should share one of the pictures of me that surfaced after it was all over...

I'm asking some sort of insightful question, but doesn't it look like I could just burst into "What I Did For Love"?

I told my friend Jim that I look like a troll doll that got left in the hot car and melted.  Including the hair.

Clearly I need to lose weight.

Also clearly I need to deep condition my hair and work some product in at the roots.  It would also be helpful if I received an electric shock every time I attempt to put my hair behind my ears.

Now, that's not to say that all the photos of me are bad... none of them are great, but there's a few that aren't terrible.

They have other people in them, though - and I don't want to violate other peoples' right to not see pictures of themselves they may hate shared in a public forum.

So it's OK to shame myself - not others.

I have standards, beautiful people.

So, I need to de-trollify my look.  Time to hydrate, exfoliate, moisturize, condition, exercise, reduce, reuse, recycle.

And love myself, nomatterwhat.
