Updates and Randomness

So being the procrastinator that I am, I have not dyed my locks.  And once I do, I was actually thinking about making them black.  But then again, maybe I'll just wait until they grow long in order to do that.  

Anywho, I have some randomness that I wanted to share today.  A couple weeks ago, I took my mother to the movies and while we were in the bathroom, I asked her what kind of person she'd think I was based on my appearance.  She said, "A person who likes to take long walks, eat nuts and ride your bike through the forest."  LOL  I have been laughing about this everyday since.  That woman cracks me up.  On another note, something I said must have stuck with her, because she's planning on locking her hair up in the near future.  I am very shocked at this decision but hope that she knows what she's getting into.

So yesterday, I asked a coworker and very good friend a similar question.  I'm moving into a new apartment and have been fervently decorating, painting and planning for my home-warming party.  I asked him if he didn't know me and had to guess how my apartment would be decorated based on my appearance what does he think it would look like.  He says, "An IKEA'd up dorm room, with strobe lights, doorway beads and colorful bean bag chairs."  I thought that was hilarious considering the direction my living room is taking.  I guess my church members will be in for a surprise.  I'll post a picture next post.

Don't Just Lay There . . . DO SOMETHING!

I feel limp and boring.

I live by the rule that if your hair looks great (or if you can accessorize your bland outfit) it gives a boost to the rest of your appearance.  Maybe because it's wintertime and I don't know how to accessorize under sweats, big stuffy coats and snow boots, I feel and look like this lately . . . 

And I'd much rather feel and look like this . . . 

Sigh . . . can't wait for summer!

My first ponytail

Aaaawwww Shucks!

Is that a ponytail yall?

I can't tell, I need a second opinion.

Yep, by dictionary definition, that is indeed a ponytail.  Granted this picture was taken after a wash and retwist some shrinkage has since occurred and my hair is not able to fit into such a neat ponytail anymore, but this is a momentous occasion folks.  One which I'm glad to be able to share with you all.

So um, what's new besides the ponytail?

The economy

Oh!  What's new with me, you mean?  Nothing really.  Same ol' stuff.

I am thinking about dyeing my hair within the next couple days.  I have no idea what color or whether to do just the tips or the whole thing.  I was thinking about dying it black to bring out my features, but then I thought maybe the traditional light brown tips.  I dunno.  Any suggestions?  I'm open to anything.  I know that most people start to dye when they get around to the length I'm at now.  Most times I like to go against whatever people are doing (so in my case I wouldn't dye it at all) but I need to do something different with my hair these days.  So we'll see.  That about it!

Happy Snow Day everybody!!!
