I decided I had to cut it for a few reasons. Here they are (just in case you wanted to know):
1) The last two years I was in two dance projects where I had to wear my hair down and it got beat to shit. People pulled it, dragged me across the stage by my hair, it got stepped on and I even had to get inside a trunk and have the lid closed with my hair hanging out of it. This last year I had to curl and rat it up into the biggest messiest fro a white girl with straight hair can have for every single performance and dress rehearsal.
2) Every time I have had a short(er) hair cut I have HATED it! This might be because I was usually the person who gave myself the hair cut but still...I have never had a hair cut above my shoulders that I have liked. I felt like it had been too long since I had tried something different and I needed to give it another chance just to prove to myself once and for all that I really do hate my hair when it is short.
3) I have been feeling like I need a change. There is so much about this shitty infertility life that I have been living for the last 3 years that I have no control or power over. I felt like I wanted to do something dramatic to shake things up and try to trick myself into thinking I hold the puppet strings to this little docudrama.
Anyway, that's all about to change. (And really, I have posted so much information about myself and my life that if any of my friends or coworkers came across my blog they would have to be the biggest moron to not figure out it's me!) I feel like in order to show you what a big deal this is to me I have to post pics....so here they are!
|Performing last weekend. You can see how I had to rat it so really it was even longer when it was washed and straight.|
|Right when I got home from the salon so it looks perfect.|
|Why yes! That is a baby bunny that I am holding! I'm saving that for a another post!|
So I did it! And I don't hate it! I was scared to do bangs because I never really think they look good on me but I like these ones! So that's all. Just a post about my hair.
