The Internal Debate Goes External

I'm not sure if it's because I've been off my meds again (I know, I know) or if it's because I just really need a change and anything of a particularly nasty nature that I've been feeling just seems to hang there. But for about a month now I've been contemplating and while I only vocalized the thought a few weeks ago, I've been mulling it around in my wicked little brain.

Maybe it's because I need to wash away the particular nastiness of this election and shampoo isn't cutting it.

Maybe it's that I'm the opposite of Sampson and more like Lenny Kravitz.

I'm unsure and while I've been trying to ride out the clippy-clippy, cutty-cutty gremlin that's been sitting on my shoulder and gnawing away on my ear, while whispering dark and evil unpleasantries about split-ends into it. I think it just has to be done.

I think I need to cut my hair.

Mine was like, boob-length, and I cut it to just above my shoulders a few weeks ago.

I hate it.

But it looks a TON healthier, and it grows fast, it's actually almost touching my collarbone already.

Um, yeah, so, not sure what my point was. Other than, there are pros and cons, I guess, that only you are aware of.

And the gnawing demon.

Don't you hate that? I got the same feeling last week, and went super red. I like it though. It lets out my inner bitch.

PS. I miss you!!!

Oooh, how short? I love getting my hair cut. It's like all my troubles fall to the floor with my shorn locks.

Then they race across the floor, out the door and wait for me in my car.

But you know, it feels good for a little while. :)

I'm a sissy when it comes to changing my hair. Hell, it took me 29 years before I'd even do highlights! And now, I want to do something else with my hair. Cutting it short, for me, isn't an option. There's no do-over button for that.

But, since you're awesome and have awesome can roll with anything. So, I say do it!!

Take it from someone who was bald for a solid year--it grows back. Cut it.

My hair was halfway down my back. But it looked all raggedy and sad from years of dying it. So I cut it to my chin. And cried. A lot. But it grew back (or well, it is on its way), and it looks better. I am glad I did it, but still slightly traumatized by that experience last year.
