So yes, this whole hair cutting frenzy was triggered by my spiteful threat to Jake. BUT. While he was in the bathroom preparing to shave, I was searching for my scissors which took me a few minutes, and getting more and more frenzied by the second. By the time I found them I was all worked up and panicked that I might actually go through with it.

But then I had this moment of clarity, a Fight Club you-are-not-your-hair moment. And I cut off the ponytail and that was it. Until then, I had never so much as trimmed my own hair. I always wondered at people who cut their own hair, which included every other member of my family, because really, not a whole lot makes me feel better about myself than a really great haircut. But since I moved here, I haven't really been able to find that anyway.

I was really kind of shaking after that, but tried to knit to chill out for a minute, then finally went to look at myself. I thought I looked like a teenage boy pothead skateboarder or something, so I decided to cut more. Also, the idea was to cut till Jake hated it, since that was originally the point. So without a plan or a thought, I started randomly chopping. FInally realized maybe I should give it a rest till I was feeling more rational, as every cut was making it less likely I could get someone to salvage it.

And this morning, after washing and sleeping on it, it looks exactly like the most horrific haircut my mom subjected me to when I was in 6th grade. She'll be happy about it, anyway. Jake of course says I subconsciously wanted my hair like that, which is blatantly incorrect. I'll try to find a picture of that haircut. HATE.

Whatever, it's honestly just hair and it will grow and even if it doesn't it's still just hair. Now if I could find a way to nontoxically dye it blue I'd be in business.

And really, I've paid a lot of money for far worse haircuts.

BEFORE:




Honestly, since I've stopped using decent shampoo, my hair has been kind of crap and I've started to hate it. Just as well. My hair was always the one thing I liked about myself until this year.

AFTER:








And Jake, before (and better):

I haven't looked in the mirror yet. For a month or so Jake has been threatening to shave his beard. So I told him that if he did, I was cutting my hair short. He likes my long hair, and so did I. OH WELL. He just came out of the bathroom with no beard so I grabbed my sewing shears, cut my whole ponytail off and handed it to him.

Maybe I should go look in the mirror now.
