Get a Haircut and Get a Real Job


Always good advice from Georges Thorogood. So since I’m looking for work, I went to the hairdresser yesterday and I let her cut my hair. I’m growing it, so I really really didn’t want to cut it. But I looked like an electrified poodle. So I got it shaped. Turns out I am no longer …

Life-Lesson learned

Apologies right off the top, yes, this is another post about my hair. Hopefully this is the last one, but this is a deep, feelings-processing post for me. I don’t have body issues. I have been EVERY size from a 4 to a 24 (I know some of you will find that hard to believe, …
