Six inches?!

07.13.2011Why in the world haven’t I mentioned that I lost six inches? No worries- not in height. Otherwise I’d be 4’7’’ I think. But I did lose six inches of hair. I can’t believe I haven’t written a blog about this. Basically at the very beginning of summer I decided I wanted to get my hair cut really really short. I’ve always liked short styles and thought I’d be able to pull one off – I had just been too afraid to actually do it. I figured that summer would be a good time to cut it. That way if it was horrendous I’d be able to isolate myself until it grew to an okay-looking length. Luckily I didn’t have to do this at all. The first piece of cut hair to land on the floor was about 6 inches long; my hair wasn’t even long to begin with so 6 inches seemed like a ton. But I think it turned out great. So far I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it, even from people I don’t know. I actually prefer this style to my longer hair. And it’s funny, whenever I go to my blog page, I feel like I don’t recognize myself. Maybe this year they’ll update the pictures again so all the readers can get a sense of what I look like now. :)
