Hair Tragedy

As I transition from Minnesotan to Iowan, I'm enjoying the comforts of my old bedroom. Thankfully, my mom keeps it on reserve for me. Unthankfully, she has filled the walls with my senior photos and other childhood nostalgia. Each time I walk into my room, I'm reminded of the haircut disaster of 2004. You see, I had a slight obsession with Mandy Moore, even more so after she got that adorable pixie cut. Immediately I ran to my hairdresser and requested 'the Mandy' then handed over a collage of googled images. The first words out of her mouth were, "Great! I'm going to do this, but keep the length a bit longer and infuse my own take on these photos." That should have been my cue to either get up and leave or open my mouth and tell her I wanted my hair to look exactly like the photos. No exceptions. But, I was young and far too polite. Long story short, I walked out of the salon nearly in tears. Then, I had to save money for weeks just to go to Great Clips and have another lady take way too much hair off. It was an incredibly emotional experience.

So, none of my photos have anything to do with the above story, but I didn't do anything exciting today and felt like working my creative writing.
