It's Time for a Change. Apparently.

It was an accident. Kind of. I mean, I've always had it in the back of my mind to go brunette, just to see how it would look.
And the other day, I was just sitting there. Insane from all the notes that surrounded me. Studying for hours and hours and days and days, enough to drive me...
As I said, I was out of it. Insane from studying. Not thinking straight. No mind set at all. Carefree. Tired. Upset. I got up from my mound of books, marched into the living room, and demanded Anne color my hair. Right NOW.
"Let's go to the store Anne. We need to get some hair color."
"What are you doing Anne? We need to dye my hair. Come on Anne. This opportunity only comes every 3rd exam Anne. Don't just sit there! We've got to do something other than study!"
And then, I woke up the next morning.

And I was brunette.
OMG. shocker.
I think I was a little afraid of the mirror.
I had no idea who that was in there. It wasn't me. It was, Crystal, or Patti, or that Witch I dressed up as for Halloween in 5th grade.

(I even have the occasional blonde strip here and there in my hair now. Because some pieces refused to change color.)

And at first it was kind of cool. Different. New. Fun. But after a while, it got old. Like, okay, I'm ready for my blonde hair back.

I mean, I've always been blonde! I don't know how people do it. Color their hair all different colors all the time. I feel like my blonde hair defined me, sort of like my truck.
Blonde hair. Green truck. Marj.
But I guess my hair and I bonded, because now I'm back to liking it. I no longer see myself as a Witch, but continue to find different things I love about it. Such as, my hair matches my favorite Coach purse now. If there is nothing else you read in the blog, please read that sentence, and understand how incredibly happy that truly makes me.

Are you parting it on the opposite side now, too? I hardly recognize you! You look smarter. {zzzing, that one's for us who aren't blonde}

Thanks for the fashion tip! I don't need more accessories, just need to color my hair. Thanks, Marj!
