I should be finishing up a few things but alas, I found this meme from Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine and liked the answers that Jen from Break the Parenting Mold shared that I was compelled to create my own. But then my powers of procrastination caused me to miss linking up but this was a good post so I decided to keep writing.
This week I am to finish the Sentence
One Time When I Was Bored out of My Mind I….
Anywho, what I didn’t like was the maintenance. I didn’t like retwisting my hair, washing it was a drag and finding someone to take care of it at a decent price…don’t make me laugh! I had found a few salons to try but I’m very
cheap and really didn’t gel with some of the prices selective and would feel like I was a vicitm ofbait and switch when the prices I would be quoted would suddenly increase when people would get a look at just how much hair I had. There *is* a lot of hair up there and it *does* take a long time to do it but I don’t want just any ole person fooling around with my hair and, I totally admit it. I am cheap.
I HAD found a new salon and was really pleased with the results. But getting back to get my hair done has not been in the cards. Some weeks I just don’t have time. Some weeks I send The Bee instead as she needs her hair done too. Some weeks, I just found my pockets a little flat.

So I started thinking of cutting my locs. It’s been a thing I think about when the struggle gets too real. That one time I looked at my new growth and decided that I looked like a wild wolf woman. That time I fell asleep twisting and had a loc mullet thing going on. That time I wore hats for a week straight because my hair was, well, damn.
Yup. One day I decided that all of that hair just had to go.
I washed my hair (and documented it, cause I am a bit of an oversharer) and was about to rethink my plan when I decided not to think.

That’s not true. I paused a moment and then took the scissors to one half of my head and chopped before I could change my mind.
|No going back now…half gone!
Away went six inches of hair.
|Bye bye hair
I then made a half-assed attempt at styling and headed to see Effin Guy who told me I was adorable, gave me a kiss and then nicely assisted some people in his store (it was a Wednesday, new comic book day and he was kinda busy but not too busy to say I was cute. Aww!)
Seriously, it’s adorbs and I’m adorbs and I rock it well with my Pooh Sweatshirt.
One time when I was bored out of my head, I realized that I can rock short hair and still be awesome.
