Well, it's happened. I'm finally bored with the baldness. No biggie, it happens every time I get a new hairstyle, usually about a month or two in or so. No hairstyle lasts too long with me.
Don't get me wrong, it was awesome while it lasted. I got tons of compliments and I wore it well (though I'm pretty sure Mother won't miss it, lol). But, it's time for something new.
So what exactly will that be? I'm really not sure; I'm thinking it might be a fade, Grace Jones style (but lower). I'd love to grow dreads, but I don't think I'll ever have the patience for that. Maybe I'll dye it bright red or something. Oh, I don't know. We'll see.
Something kind of strange has been happening to me on and off for a few months now.
For the past few months, I've been dreaming a lot. And a lot of times, as I wake up from a dream, I'll hear whispers.
Like, loud whispers. Right in my ear.
But it doesn't bother me or anything; it doesn't sound malicious, it doesn't scare me. It's just kind of weird, and I wish I could always remember what they're saying.
And when I do remember what the whispers are about, it's never (as far as I can remember, anyway) about anything having to do with my dream. Like, this morning, I woke up from a dream -- not a bad dream, just something having to do with my parents. No one was whispering to me in th dream (and no one usually is when this happens). Then I start to wake up, and I hear that loud whisper:
"I can't believe you're reading that."
WTF? Does it seriously have an issue with my reading selection? Lol. If you have any idea what this could be about, feel free to comment.
So, my mother picked me up yesterday. We went shopping...and she saw my shaved head for the first time.
She...does not agree. Lol. She completely flipped out in the car: "Why did you do that to your hair?! Dah-da-da-da-DAH-dah-dah..." It's actually kind of funny now, but I really didn't expect that kind of reaction from her. I knew she'd be surprised, and was prepared for her not to like it, but...she took it quite seriously, more seriously than I had expected.
It doesn't look feminine, it doesn't look good, I don't like it, etc, etc, etc...but to me, it's just hair. Nothing more. Plus, I just don't like doing my hair, I never have. She says, Well, neither do I! But that doesn't mean you can just cut it all off! And I'm like, "Why not?"
No answer. But maybe an hour later, she apologizes and says she was just shocked, and that it doesn't look bad. She just likes how I look with hair. I tell her it's no biggie, and that I understand. I kind of meant the hair(lessness) to be a surprise, but I didn't realize how serious it was for her. Plus, honestly, I've gotten nothing but compliments about it since I got it done. Perfect strangers tell me I look pretty and have a nice face shape for a shaved head; even my boyfriend likes it, and he's always objected to my cutting my hair in the past. So I guess I was expecting her to like it at least a little bit...but, whatev. It was soon forgotten, and all is well. :)
