Sometimes you have one, when looks like whatever you do is not quite successful. You follow your schedule but it doesn’t work. I think, maybe it’s a message to stop to think about your life and take it easy. Or to go to a hair stylist and relax if only the hair won’t get screwed up on that special day.

Last week, I had a bad hair day. I went to the bank to withdraw some money from my account, but it was blocked due to my bank was changing to a Islamic bank and I went back to my office .When I came to my office the lender demanded her money and I said no but she didn’t accept my descriptions and let me another chance for one day.
