#90: Grow out my hair… And of course, the issues I have with it

Last February I started my 101 Things in 1001 Days list and have made a pretty solid dent in the thing. I’ll admit, there are few items I’m sort of avoiding completing until the laaaaaast possible minute, like the trying fish thing and singing karaoke (not a fan), but some I got started on right off the bat. I managed to grow out my hair, woooooop.

… Aaaaaand now I want to cut it. Haha. Tell me please, what is my flippin deal? I am never happy with the state of my hair and always wanting to do something different or change it up in some way. Is this normal?

Remember this? And this? In keeping with the trend, I am coming to YOU for advice. Since, you know, you are the ones who have to hear it whenever I’m upset with life/hair.

What my hair looks like now:

(Jimaie, me, Natali)

Justin and Morgan

(Me and Justin at Prom, obv.)

Ew. Do you see the scraggles? I can’t deal! I WANT THEM GONE. Gone forever, I say.

So, my questions for you are…

Should I chop it?

I’m not talking chin-length, but definitely above my shoulders. It’d be more manageable and healthy looking, right? And cute and current and fabulous?

Should I grow out my bangs?

I’ve had them for 8 months or so… is it time to lay them to rest? And while we’re at it, how difficult is it to actually grow out your bangs?? I’m kind of scared of dealing with that mess.

Should I keep growing it out and embrace the white trash, scraggles look?

I’m pushing you into a corner here. I think you all know what I want to hear.  :)

Really though, I value your opinions and would like to hear what you really think I should do. Two male readers, that means you too. Thanks!

Take advantage of this before I change my mind.

Confession: I am a selfish child who hates to share.

When I find something I love, I keep it to myself… it’s horrible, I know, but it’s my nature.  Like, you know when babies are learning to eat real food and they kind of obsess about it 24/7 and HAVE to eat whatever you’re eating? Most people are all, “Here you go, baby! *gigglelaughsnort* I looove sharing my food with babies!”  Me? No. Maddie does that to me every day, and each time I have to hand over a bite of my delicious meal I feel like she’s taking a part of my soul along with it, covering it in drool and leaving it for me to clean up approximately 4 hours later. It makes my eye twitch a little. I only do it because I love her. And only give her the tiniest of bites because the rest is for me, dang it.  It’s an issue.

With that little nugget of information, you may now understand why it is taking every last ounce of strength in my selfish little body to write this post. It’s just that I’m sort of obsessed with this new online boutique I discovered a few weeks ago and I was seriously contemplating keeping it all to myself, BUT in the spirit of kindness, adorable dresses and discount codes, I feel it is my duty to share this with all of you.

(I’m almost saint-like, I know.)

Now, quick. Before I change my mind…
