I’m impetuous

I can from time to time be recklessly impulsive. Most of the time it has to do with my hair. Don’t know why it just exhibits itself that way. I suppose because it’s one of the least permanent impulsive things I can do. πŸ˜‰ I mean, it’s JUST hair, it does grow back. I’ve been less impetuous with my hair since I met the man beyond my dreams and he has declared a very decided preference for how he likes my hair. Long. That doesn’t leave much room for impulses. πŸ˜‰ When we moved to Greenville after getting married and I went for a ‘trim’ the guy who cut my hair was surprised that it hadn’t always been that long. I guess if a gal has really long hair, people assume she’s never had it short. Well, I’m here to tell ya, it’s been Tinkerbell pixie short before. πŸ˜‰

It’s not now… no worries. πŸ˜‰ But I do have a confession to make. I have messed up my hair on more than one occasion because I thought I could just do it. I’ve watched you-tube videos and online tutorials on how to cut/trim/whatever your own hair. And whether it’s because I just don’t possess the talent for dealing with hair, or it’s because my hair is THICK, and has a mind of it’s own, it nearly never comes out like the pictures online. πŸ˜‰ And then I’m left with the mess and I get all depressed and just hate my hair more than I did before I was SURE that I needed to try this “thing” and well… while it does grow back, the process takes awhile. πŸ™‚

Why I never learn from this process is what boggles my mind. πŸ™‚ Seriously, it’s been repeated enough times that you’d think I could learn. Still, I sit and fume over my own hair, and lack of style and then I browse websites like this one. And then I just chop 8 inches off of my hair without batting an eyelash. And this is what I’m left with.

I used to ALWAYS have bangs no matter the hair style. I have a rather prominent (to me anyway) forehead, and so I tried to minimize it with hair. But somehow (I still can’t remember how or when exactly it happened) I grew them out, and from that day to now I have had a strong aversion to hair in my face. BUT recently I’ve also been growing an aversion to NEVER looking put together. And I figure that if I have bangs, I can at least “do” them and I’ll look somewhat put together, even if the rest of my hair is still a hot mess. The last couple of times I’ve “tried” bangs have been a disaster, so I’m hoping this will be different.

Guess I’m stuck with it for now. πŸ™‚ It’s on trial for a couple of days. It’s a little on the long side for my liking, though you can’t really have sideswept bangs short. Oh well. One day I’ll have the perfect hair….. I think.
