I'm Melting

Monday, October 23, 2017

Today, I finally got another Japanese straight perm. I wanted to get it before my new job starts. When I walked into the salon this morning, the owner (who didn't seem very friendly) told me to sit down and wait (I was a little early for my appointment). Anyway, last time Yoshimi did my perm, but I got Yuka today. She was an absolute delight! :) She was so friendly, and we chatted a bit. Fortunately, the damage control she put on my hair, a trim, and head massage were all included in the price of the perm. :) I walked out after 3.5 hours. Now I'm home, but I can't tie my hair back, or even tuck my hair behind my ears for 48 hours! Oh well; I'm just glad that I'm doing all this before my new job starts. I could tell that Yuka did a better job with my perm than my previous worker. I planned to tip her 15%, but I was so impressed by her service that I tipped her 20%. :)

It's been so hot these days! I keep sweating, so I'm paranoid that my perm will get ruined (since my hair can't touch water for 48 hours)! Oh well. I'm hoping and praying that my hair will turn out perfect (which I know is unrealistic).

I'm a little worried that I might gain weight once I start my new job.

    Hope your hair turns/ed out just the way you wanted it to.
    Starting your new job will move you into a new routine, which will take some time to fine-tune and get used to. New things are scary, but they're also exciting, and this will definitely move your forward and closer to your goals as far as money and living arrangements are concerned.
    Pack your lunches, steer clear of the vending machines, take a walk at lunch.
    You'll get this all figured out! Best wishes.

    You might be less likely to gain weight when you start your job--you won't have spare time to "boredom eat". But then, you also will not have spare time to exercise more, either. I know that whatever is really important to you, you will make that happen. So pack healthy lunches and/or snacks if you are afraid you'll cave to the siren song of vending machines and junk food. Make a point of walking for half of your lunch break. Expect things to go well (not perfectly, maybe you'll just think of it as "not terrible", kind of depends on what works so you have positive but not crazy-unrealistic expectations. Everybody is nervous starting a new job. It's like the first day of school. You will do fine. If you didn't have what's needed, they wouldn't have hired you, right?

    Love the idea of a little pampering before you new job starts!

    Don't fret I am sure it is all just new job jitters.
