Pink Is Soooo My Color!!


I've always been told I look good in pink! And now my blog matches! Yay, what fun! (Say, all these exclamation points remind me of a past post form some months back...three points to anyone who can remember which one!!!)

I chose pink, not because "brunettes look good in pink", as I've been told by an impertinent salesgirl (Huh? Isn't Okee blonde? Or maybe not...), but because pink is a happy color.

And I like being happy, I really really do. And so even though stress has lately seemed to display an eager desire to consume my every waking moment, and a past relationship has ended rather suddenly and shockingly before my eyes, which I may or may not go into detail of in the near future, and too much is flying all around me before I can take a good, long look at it...I choose happiness. After all, if someone said to you that you can either take the red pill or the blue pill, one giving you happiness and the other despair, what color pill would you swallow (gratuitous movie reference, oops)?

Well, you say, or rather, you should say, 'which color gives you which emotion?', because you, like myself, are in law school (or maybe you aren't, and that's okay too), and so you know to examine issues from every logical and possible angle. To reexamine the situation thrice over, taking it apart and forgetting how to put it together again, and then, in a wondering kind of voice, asking, "Are we just reading too much into this?"

Anyway, if I was given the choice, I'd (duh!) choose happiness, because although despair may be much more glamorous, very "in" even, and can be accompanied by the most beautiful violins, happiness -although often overrated- can be used as a means to an end...despair can only lead to the end.

'Oh,' you say, 'so that's why she changed the template of her blog to a hot pink girly looking thing...Now I get it.'

You needn't be so sarcastic. I knew I'd get to the point eventually.

And the point is: All those new beginnings, although awkward and difficult, and at times I felt like a fish on land flapping about gasping for oxygenated water, were not as bad as I thought they'd be. I love school. Really! And It's fun being the "frummy" as my very sweet new-though-not-frum-and-not-necessarily-Jewish friends call me. More on all that another time. Cause I gotta get some sleep. Cause I have school tomorrow.

Crazy, huh? Me, in school!!:)

Anyway, good night, and from the bottom of my heart- take care!

Josh said...

Two points for happiness!!!!! I guess you'd take the pink pill. Glad school is going so well. You're not in Kansas anymore!

Scraps said...

Titchadshi! Very cute.

(((hugs)))<--for the stressful things

Btw, I'm still waiting for my ice-cream date...

hisbonenus said...

You stole my template. :(

Okee said...

frumgirl--you know what they say about great minds...!

josh--silly! You get three points! Good job, and actually, pink wasn't one of the choices -if you're going to play the game, you have to play by its own rules. And Kansas? Never been...Yeah, I know what you mean. I see I'm not the only movie-referencer in the bunch. It's funny how kansas was black and white- a thematic element which signifies surrealism, while the land of Oz was colorful and bright -almost too real. Hmmmmm... What is real and what is not? Am I now in the real world, as many now congratulate me? Or is it just a thematic element...

scraps--thank you, thank you! ((hugs))...and as to the ice cream...(i scream you scream we all scream for ice cream)

hisbonenus--oish, sweetie, it was yours! Blogger never mentioned thaaaat...(cue evil laughter) But really, it was the pink template. I needed the pink. I had to have the pink. Can I use the pink? I might change it again in, say, a year?

kasamba said...

You sound great!!!
And you're right, you do look good in pink!!!!


(Any sequins coming?)

hisbonenus said...

It's aight, Okee. You can have my pink template, no charge. You definitely deserve it after all the work you're doing. (And you look way better in pink than I do, that's for sure.)
Hope you're surviving over there...

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

Nice template glad you are doing well. I am getting bored of mine which used to be yours. We shall see...

Okee said...

kasamba--oh, gosh, thank you! and sequins are a very good idea. a veeeery good idea, indeed...

hisbonenus--oh dearie, i'm not taking it from you! I guess you can call it "sharing"--like what our hallway was so good at... and i think you look charming in pink -but a saturated pink, like magenta or fuscia, something that really says, "Hello world, I am -yes it is true -I am wearing pink!" And as to survival...-gasp-, -uhhh-, -gasp-, -juuuust breeeeathe- :)

sw/fm--thank yer kindly -dots are fun, but the dark colors make even polka dots depressing after a while...! Hence the "big change". I'll be checking up on you to see if you make a change!

What energy in this post, so cool the classes are interesting at least you keep coming with enthusiasm.

Frum men have it so much easier, we get to choose between grey, dark blue and black.(oeps am I wearing a beige pull-over today?)
Choose happiness it's more fun!

great new look. I like it!

Okee said...

davidonthelake--aw, shana tova u'mesuka to you too!

prag--Every day, when I take my very first sip of coffee, I thank Hashem for giving us the very great gift of caffeine, without which, I'm not sure how enthusiastic or energized I could ever be!
And don't get me started about men having it easier, sartorially speaking. It's sooo much easier for a guy to look put together -for any occasion, just wear a suit. But easier does not always translate into "funner", and I love all my girly clothes, shoes, jewelry and make-up. Unfortunately, I don't have as much pink in my wardrobe as I used to -like when I was three and a half- but I do wear it from time to time. When I decide to take a break from the unfortunate black "NY look" that girls of my age tend to adopt in Israel. What is it about the color black and looking more religious? Wouldn't another dark color like navy or forest green or a deep plum fend off untzniusness just as well, but in a much happier way? Oh, well, I told you not to get me started. :)

frum idealist--thanks! I'm glad the new look is met with such approval -I guess I'll keep it around for a little while longer, at least...And shana tova u'mesuka!
