TRAUMA

Ok, so tons to blog about, but first things first.  MY HAIR.

On Tuesday I went to get a haircut.  I didn't reallllly need one, but Mom offered to pay so I went for it.  Little did I know how I would RUE THE DAY.  It was SO BAD you guys.  I went into the bathroom afterwards and cried.  Katy and Christy even admitted that it was a horrible cut. It was TOTALLY Mrs. Brady.  Yes. Awful.  At first I thought "Oh, Jo! Your one true beauty."  But then, once I saw the back, the line that came to mind was from Howl's Moving Castle: "I see no point in living if I can't be beautiful!"  That's how bad it was.

So I went to a different place to see if there was any way to fix it.  The stylists there were shocked at how bad the cut was.  The nice gay guy kept saying "Oh you poor ting!" over and over again.  There wasn't a ton my girl could do, but it's better at least.  Just freakishly short in the back.

OH and to make matters worse: my hair started coming in darker once I got pregnant, much to my EVERLASTING SORROW.  So when my hair got cut super short, all the rest of my blonde came off.  I now have totally brown hair.  I don't even recognize myself when I look in the mirror anymore.  Christy swears my blonde will come back, but I'm not holding out any hope.  At least I know it will grow back and this pixie cut in the front/practically buzzed in the back hairstyle won't be forever.

I know I'm being dramatic, but I think it's warranted.  I don't look like myself and it's upsetting!

POOR BECKA! Don't think you're being dramatic; even I felt a bit of panic when I read this! But don't worry; take it from a girl who has had more than her fair share of horrible haircuts: there's always a way to mask it a little, and hair always grows faster than you think.

...now get some pictures up here, girl. There's no trauma like shared trauma. ;)

...I spelled your name wrong. I know this. I was typing quickly in my exuberance. I am sorry. >___<

You can pull off any hairstyle. I saw you with a mohawk once and you looked awesome!

I concur with Kyle.

Bad haircuts are traumatic. Hang in there!

man that sucks! I'll admit that's why i'm afraid to ever cut my hair short, atleast when you keep it at least shoulder length you can put it in a pony tail and look semi normal when this happens-just remember, this too shall pass! At least it's winter and you can wear beanies a lot ;)

For a visual, to what particular hairstyle of Carol Brady are you referring? I'm sure you look beautiful. Now I shall speak to the loss of the blonde: we have modern-day technology that has rolled forth to solve that. :) Go hit the dye-bottle girl! You are to your core a blonde so there is no shame in returning to what is rightfully yours. Missing you all!
