Two more things.

I began to comb my hair down, so it is no longer poofy and messy as it was before. Yes, it's strange having bangs for the first time in 12 years. Three people at school said I looked like a Beatle.

Also, I saw a Listerine commercial. The bottle claimed it to be an "antiseptic." Septic tanks are used for bathrooms without typical plumbing. I'm not washing my mouth with that.
