Usually people have or do one thing that makes them feel amazing. Whether it's going to a special spot, taking a long bath, or going out with the guys (or girls), there's something - so, what's yours?

This all came about because I was thinking about how tomorrow I'm going to wash my hair. It's unhealthy for your hair to clean it every day (the surfactants in shampoo can be extremely harsh on your skin, especially if you live in one of the most humidity-free regions on the planet) and I usually go every other day or so. I'm also a huge fan of morning showers, as bizarre as that is..well, only bizarre because of my level of enthusiasm for showers. So..I'm basically really, really looking forward to waking up tomorrow and scrubbing down, shampoo'ing the crap out of my hair, deep conditioning, drying off, and dousing my skin in lotion.

and this stuff is so oh dear god delicious:

and oh baby,

and you betchaaaa

Another thing is any time we hit up my favorite restaurant. That place is better than a good night's sleep by about a thousand - atmosphere, sexy asian waitresses, sake, the best food that I ever have and ever will taste..it's muy bueno. Or more appropriately, subarashi. :P


i'm like oh kimosabe,
your body is my hobby

the official 'you bitch' count: a whole lot

Mostly last year, my best friend and I had a ritual of getting ice cream, then driving as far as we can while listening to music too loudly and ranting. Honestly, I never had one of those "roadtrips" that didn't end with me in a significantly happier mood.

I'm certainly a creature of habit, though. I've got rituals that I've been doing since I was a little kid, no joke. I just find comfort in little, routine things. (though, I should note that that doesn't, by any means, mean that I'm not a fan of change.)
I wake up, put my clothes for the day on, make a pot of coffee, smoke a cigarette while it's brewing, and then go to my room and turn on my straightener (Syuu, I hate blow-drying my hair too, and opt for the straightening+serum route, too) so it can warm up...then I get coffee. I sip the coffee as I straighten my hair/ do my makeup (Always do the concealer first, then the eyes) and if I get done early I bring my cup into the kitchen and drink some more.
Beyond that, my days aren't too horribly structured. But my morning routine MUST be followed or I feel really weird for the rest of the day. I remember when I last went down to Dallas to see my Man, I ended up buying a mini can of Folger's so I could have my morning coffee. It was that important.

Most of my habits are good things, though they may come off as a bit odd if I'm not at home/ somewhere I'm familiar with.
I always turn the lights off when I leave the room, I double and triple check all locks before I go to bed, and check all electrical things too. When smoking I ash after every three drags, and when I sit down at the computer my first instinct is the plug my phone in to charge.

Anyway, that got a little off topic. Rituals that make me feel better...hmm. Bubble baths. I am a bubble-bath lovin' motha-F**ker. We've got this pretty big whirlpool tub upstairs and it is just heaven to bring my speakers up there and spend a good hour or so scrubbing and pampering myself. I also like trying on different combinations of clothes when i feel bad, or doing my makeup in a new way. Sometimes I'll make a pot of coffee. (Even if I don't want coffee. Just the smell makes me feel better.)
Hmmm. I think that about covers it?

Her dignity shone so bright like a light on a hill
and she burned for me, no other man came near her flame.
Bad country songs - the deafening twang of the rich white kid blues.
You can own the strange, but the lights and glares will not make you real.
