I did feathered nails

SO my Olympic nails finally had to go. 
I painted these while watching the olympics though. ;)
 I think it turned out cute, and kind classy-ish.
They look good.

what you need:
Nail Polish- obviously. I used:
Maybelline color show- Audacious Asphalt (whole nail)
Revlon- Jaded and Blue Lagoon(stripes)
Kiss Nail Art paint- silver, white, and black(stripes)

the kiss nail arts are good because they have little brushes perfect for what I was doing.

step uno:
base coat. I did about 3 layers, making sure they were completely dry between coats

step dos:
Stripe it up! I started with black, then white, then blue, then green, then silver on top.
Take the small brush, make sure there isn't too much polish on it.
Put the tip to the lower corner of your nail and brush towards the opposite corner,
make sure you lighten up the pressure when you want it to get wispy.

step tres:
Clear coat, make it look completed and last longer. 


I have also enjoyed looking at these Olympic Meme's I hope you get a little laugh from them:

A Tough Decision

Okay, so this next semester I am staying in Utah instead of going to Virginia.
It's kinda bitter sweet super difficult choice, but so far I am okay with it.

I would lay in bed with my eyes closed tight late at night, thinking of where I should go, 
or what I should do. These thoughts taking away any chance for my body to fall into a 
desperately wanted slumber. It seemed like the back of my eyelids were bursting with light,
as though I was staring into the screen of a TV on a missing channel. 
The white noise a flashing of lights, with glimpses of scenes, displaying hints of the paths that
lay before me. I was hoping desperately, that it would show me something useful if I waited long enough, to just choose something for me. 
The more I stared with desperation the more I knew deep down that the choice was mine.
I had the controls and I had to make the ultimate choice.
Once I had made a choice I could see the complete scene of the path.
I was scared though, had I waited too long, are my choices gone, and now I'm left with nothing?
What if it was the wrong choice, can I go back without any bad consequences?
Or do I have to go valiantly through with the wrong choice, desperately waiting for a new option to come along and save me.
I laid awake so man nights thinking these thoughts. I was praying at night for help on a decision.
Unfortunately I don't think there was a bad, or good decision in this case.

One night I was finally thinking I knew what I wanted to do. 
So I prayed about it, again, nothing. But the next evening, I was at dinner with my parents.
When all the sudden a thought came that I was going to stay in Utah for the semester.
So I told them, and here I am, staying in Utah.

I am going to miss Virginia and SVU so much, and all the friends that I have made there that have kept me sane. I might be returning in the spring though. 
I don't know yet.
Right now I am just trying to get everything in order for my semester in Utah.
I am excited to be closer to my family, to be able to spend holidays with them,
and it will be fun to be closer to the friends that I have here. 
Well, wish me luck! I am diving into the deep unknown!
