- 1. I shower sitting down. Many people find this strange, I find it relaxing.
- 2. I big fat poofy heart things between my toes, especially when I sleep.
- 3. I think potato chips taste like awesome sauce when dipped in sour cream. YUM!
- 4. I'm obsessed with gnomes. *GASP!*
- 5. You can tell how I feel about life by the length of my hair.
When I was a teenager I always imagined I'd have long flowing locks of glorious hair falling down in big fat curls in my wedding. It was almost like a goal.
I dated the same boy all through high school. When we were dating and things were happy and I saw a pretty white wedding in my future I began growing out my hair.
Then things started to go down hill. And I started to think I needed a change. So I asked my friend to help "layer" my hair.
Here's the thing about teenagers...they are NOT in fact professional hair stylists. The approach we took at layering was nothing like the approach that in facts puts pretty layers in your hair. Thus I was left with a the worlds worst head of layerFAIL. Not pretty.
I cried and called my sister home from work to come fix it. Ended up chopping off like 6 inches. Unexpected hair cut = Teenage meltdown...in case you didn't know. Oddly, not even a couple weeks later. I broke up with said boyfriend.
Coincidence? I think not!
This trend has followed me into adulthood.
Every time I began to feel like life was about to change, I chopped my locks. Break ups, pregnancy, job changes, etc. When life is calm and stable, the hair is long. When life is chaotic and out of control...chop chop chop!
So it really shouldn't come as any surprise that I ended up with one of the shortest hair cuts ever for my wedding!
