Welcome to my grungy glare directed at my apartment complex for their failure to keep residents safe during the Texas ice storm. The perimeter of my building was covered in ice. The east-side deck resembled an ice-skating rink, which made for treacherous passage to the parking garage stairs & sidewalk bordering the building. The west-side stairs were also covered in ice.
Prior to the storm, I emailed management & completed a maintenance request to prep the building’s perimeter. Both were ignored. I also contacted the emergency number, but the operator told me, “Icy sidewalks are not on the list of emergencies.” Later, I contacted the leasing office, which said the apartment complex was not responsible for ensuring the grounds were prepped for ice storms. I said they used to sand the sidewalks & stairs. I then angrily explained there was no safe way for residents to walk dogs, but my complaint fell on deaf ears.
I become irate when illogical, harmful decisions are made & I have no control to alter them. So, I did what any sensible 50-year-old does: I called my mom to vent. We discussed workable solutions. I brought down an old bath towel & laid it on the sidewalk so I could safely step into the plant area. I then smashed the ice with my boots so Lavi could potty without slipping & breaking his back.
Moral of the story? Big corporations care little about the people who line their pockets.
Well, that was a rant. 😤
Now, for the grungy colors surrounding my glare, I used @acebeaute
's Paletteopoly palette. My cheeks are flushed not just with anger but also with @phytosurgence
's Exothermic, which I tapped over their Mirrored Moonlight. I definitely needed sparkle to cheer me up, and @kaleidosmakeup
's Space Age highlighter in Solar Sailor did the trick. I finished the look with a glossy pout by @clinique
's Black Honey. I used other stuff too, but I’ve run out of room.
