I will give the last few days in pictures with a surprise at the end. [Pictures and first descriptions from dailybooth.]

"Today is a dissertation day. Gee, can you tell?"
[Here we set the scene.]

"Ham & Pineapple pizza - the meal of dissertation champions. (Okay not so much haha.)"
[But wait, I can't work yet! I haven't eaten!]

"The lesson I have learned today: I always make strange faces when I'm reading, especially dissertation stuff."
["Finally working finally working finally working..."]

"Minerva deliver me from preposterously stretched metaphors."
["I'M GOING TO HEX THIS AUTHOR! Ugh I'm only going to get through one book today thanks to how long this stretched analogy has made this chapter. I've been reading for ages."]

"Dissertations do not keep a lady looking good. At least in my personal experience."
[Day two. It's definitely wearing me down. Note: I also look like a pre-pubescent or just-adolescent boy when my hair is not around. It used to lend itself well to cross-dressing.]

"This is proof that a) I have been watching too many Catherine Deneuve films lately; b) I have too much hair; c) I procrastinate too much. I can't believe I managed to get all my hair to stay up just with pins."
[One near-panic attack, one raging attack-bed-with-pillow fight, five crying episodes, three housemate hugs and one email to my supervisor later, it's time for a little break for some more Catherine Deneuve...and thus more hair practice.]

"I am slowly learning. However, the best part about it will be in the next snap. :P"
[Take two.]

"Volume in the front! I don't think I've ever had any sort of volume on top of my head before, always slicked back. It may look a little ridiculous here, but it actually looks sort of fun in real life."
[My serendipitous bump in life followed by a terrible pothole in working.]

"This is my equation for work. It's very simple. Kiwi + Nutella. (Why yes, that is a ridiculous little kiwi bird plushie.)"
[The remedy for the terrible pothole in working. Nutella is dangerous. The kiwi plushie is there to protect me.]

"Just realised that the way I knot my hair to put it in a bun sort of looks like bread."
[Ridiculous discoveries are ridiculous.]

"Today is hair day in the life of Kiwi. This is how I wear my hair when I just throw it back."
[This is my 'messy bun,' thus called because I put it in an odd knot and tie it with a scrunchie. Knots to me are associated with mess. Here the trail ends for the moment.]

So today I feel like an utter failure and I can't believe I actually had to opt out of a deadline I chose, but I wasn't hacking it and I knew it's what I needed.

But somehow it bothers me a little less that I feel like a failure because the universe has Alan Rickman, and that makes things okay:

Hahaha you totally do! I still haven't changed it over from February because I love her pretty face. ♥

*Blushes and flails about and hides under a pillow until her voice is muffled.* I'm going to have to thank genetics for that; it's all the genes. "Jesus LIGHTSABERS" - *giggles.* Thank you for letting me know and for lighting my face on fire. :Þ

Ewwww Algebra. Also, Kiwi + Nutella = happysauce. I have more Nutella by my desk and now I'm tempted but NO I SHALL NOT.

I can't imagine how to artfully fix long hair behind ones head with pins and stuff.... the Deneuve style looks great!
Little Kiwi plush protector is adorable ♥

Thank you! It definitely took some effort and I can't always get it right. I much prefer to be lazy with my hair. :D

D'awr. I love my little kiwibird plush friend. (:

This post made me smile. :-)

Dissertation blues are always rescuable with Nutella. ::g:: And I love the Catherine Deneuve look on you - you have lovely hair.

Alan Rickman . . . whata guy! Fabulous video find, Kiwi!

::hugs:: A failure you are NOT.

Awwr, glad you got a smile out of it! I'm hoping the remainder of my dissertation blues will be rescuable with Nutella - I'm going to be having a lot of fairly big ones soon, with the deadline approaching as it is.

Thank you! Glad to know the Catherine Deneuve look works! Although I'm going to have to practice it a lot, I think; I can't always get it right. *Blushes about the hair.* Thanks. I'm glad it just grows from my head that way.

A failure I am not; it's just a pity that a petty failure I feel! *Hugs back.*

And thank you for the cute comment, as well. Sometimes my eyes skip over those since I'm not used to compliments and I'm never sure what to do with them since they're unexpected! But thank you again; it made me smile. :D

You are welcome. I never know how to respond to compliments, but just appreciating them is a good step. And yay for making you smile ;)
