I Do What I Want.

This was probably a bad idea.
But I dont care.
I did it cause I wanted to.
Plain and simple.
I wanted it done.
I didnt want to wait.
So I did it myself.
I didnt pro-con it.
I didnt even care if it turned out badly.
I wanted to do it.

I came home from work.
Took the scissors out of the cupboard and hacked off my pony tail.
For better or for worse.
I love short hair.
And I was holding onto my long hair for reasons similar to why I wanted to be a dental hygienist at one point in time.
It was stupid.
And I'm tired of acting like I'm stupid.
Cause I'm not.

A) I'm glad you updated quickly. I will sleep better tonight.
B) I resent that dental hygiene and being stupid were paired up. I resent that a lot.

Cathy said...

And for the record, I hang on to my long hair for the same reason I am a dental hygienist - I love it.

Erika said...

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Actually, i LOVE a short hair like that. If I didnt live in this humidity, i would probably do it myself.

I also Love that you did it yourself!
I love that you were impulsive and did something kind of crazy in the best way. I want to do something crazy and impulsive.... Any ideas.

I LOVE IT!!!! I wish I had been brave enough to chop mine off myself. I can't wait to see it in person!!!

WHOA! MELISSA! You are SUCH an up-stager! I was feeling bad about not posting for a while (especially considering you've posted several times since I last did) and while I was typing my post I thought: Ha! Now Melissa will have something to read! BUT NOW YOU'LL JUST BE OFF GALAVANTING WITH SHORT HAIR! CRAZY!

(Also, I think it's insane that you have short hair. I love it, but I'll have to get used to it because all the Melissa Lowry's I know have had long hair forever!)

(Also, Also: What are you doing with your leftover hair? Enough to donate to cancer like an old g-tower buddy of yours??? Just planting a seed!)

I'm just like you in the fact that If I get in my mind that I want to do something (like get a hair cut) I don't want to have to wait, I just want it DONE. So I do it.

I'm glad you didn't go all Brittany spears and shave your head completely!

Have you ever had short hair before?? cause I can't remember if you have!!

I think it looks great on you!

Stefanie said...

Melissa!!! that looks sooo good! :) I'm so proud of you . Now if only you could take that hair and plop it onto my head. sheesh way to go!!

Melissa said...

Thanks Everyone!
I'm moderately pleased I dont look like a slaghead.
And Cathy... I meant no offense to the dental hygiene nation. Clearly I love dental hygienists (cough Bonnie cough Cathy cough).
Erika - crazy impulsive... hmmm... Impulsively make something? Or decide to skinny dip in the ocean? Thats impulsive and crazy. I'll have to give it more thought.
B- sadly the hair is already in the trash. And I'm not rooting around for it. The last time I did a drastic cut of this nature I did donate it... so can I live off my former glory?
Ang-I think the last time I had short hair was right after highschool. And its been beckoning to me every since. I love short hair. And it was time.
