Hair, sadness, and happiness again

I dyed my hair last night. It turned out darker than the box but it’s already faded slightly so I think it’ll be just fine. I’m really warming to it. I would like to keep up with darker hair, I think it looks pretty good on me.

My Monday started off really crappy though when I came into work and learned someone in my department died in a car crash this weekend.

I didn’t talk to her every day but whenever she was in the building she came and said hi to me. I met her the first week in this position and she made me feel so relaxed and welcomed. And I’m never going to see her again. Death is so terribly hard to grasp. It put a damper on the whole day at work and seeped in to my evening a bit.

Our poster came all the way from London!

But then we got mail – Sidney and I got our poster we had ordered back in May and it looks great. I also talked with my parents for a bit and my mood has lightened. Life goes on, even if we don’t think it should. As I was processing the loss of a team member, I walked by a happy little girl heading to school and it was a bittersweet moment. We all should strive to enjoy our lives because no matter how hard we try, we don’t know when we’ll leave this life. Not the best ending to a blog but that’s all I have for today.
