For various reasons, I've been having a difficult time for the past couple of weeks. I'm feeling much better now. When one major thing changes in my life, I always feel compelled to change other things as well. Over the weekend I cut 8 inches off my hair. It's a short, sleek bob now, barely long enough to get into a ponytail at the base of my skull. I kind of love it. I also dyed it jet black. That, I think, was a mistake. It's been this color in the past, but this time it seems a little too harsh for my pale skin. It also makes my freckles stand out like sprinkles on a white cupcake. I may have to go for a color correction. I'm going to give it some time, and see if it lightens up a bit. I got two new pairs of glasses. They're similar to the old glasses, but one is a different color, slightly smaller and the other pair is more squared at the edges and purple. I bought brilliant green contacts. Overall, it's been a fun makeover. Now that I'm feeling better, I think the changes will stop, not that there's much else I can do for the time being anyway.
