I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but... I'm getting my hair cut! *dies*

I've been considering donating 10" to "Locks of Love" for a long time, but only just recently really set myself to do it for certain. Now, of course, that I've said I AM going to do it, I'm getting truly apprehensive... Guh. I still really think I should do it for more than one reason. I have over 20" of hair, so it's not as if I'm gonna have to get a pixi cut--but I'm just so used to having past-waist length hair! The thought of getting it cut is just plain traumatic. =S

Every time I work myself up to the point where I feel confident doing it, my thoughts go "Wait...you're talking about cutting the hair you've had pretty much all your life. Ah!" *insert panic attack*

Then, next day... "Nef. You said you were going to do this. People get hair-cuts every day. You can always grow it back out..."

*sniffles* It still feels like I'm saying goodbye to an old friend. Yes, 'tis very emotional. =/

When I was younger, I didn't take the best care of my hair, so I do have some pretty bad split ends. I'm looking at this as a sort of starting over, and I will still have fairly long hair. It better grow quickly though... 

Man, I think I need therapy. *sobs*

Thank God I have a sister to come along with me for emotional support. Okay...that is really pathetic-sounding. Emotional support for a hair-cut. *clings to Cami*

Man, and here I thought doing some ranting on here would strengthen my resolve. =P

Well...for now I shall distract myself from all that with writing, and Latin, and whatever else I can come up with... I think this is something I could easily procrastinate about my entire life. Heh. ^^

Oh, and on a quick not-so-distraught topic: Cami and I will soon have a brand new bathroom! Woo hoo! Of course, for the present we are mid-remodel, and are without our toilet, or shower, but the boys (Eric and our brother-in-law, who's a finish carpenter) are grouting the floor tiles today, and I'm extremely excited to see how it looks when they're done. Cami and I picked out a beautiful mosaic for the center. It kinda looks like elvish heraldry to me. *g* It has these lovely blue-ish stones in it, which should match the blue paint colors we picked out for the walls. No more grungy, ucky basement bathroom with peeling wallpaper and truly awful brown tiles--wee! =D Now to survive the noise and clouds of dust (that coats everything)... It's so fun to see things come together. =)

Aaaahh!!! Nef is getting her hair cut!?! O.O

You know, I'm just now able to really, really sympathize with this though, because, while I've cut my hair many times (and donated 12 inches of it to Locks of Love before I had surgery), now that I'm letting it grow out, I had an outright nightmare recently about getting it cut short. This is the longest my hair has been for six years, and...er...I think that dream signifies that I've officially converted to the long-hair crowd. :D

But you will definitely still have long hair, mellon-nin! Though I can imagine it would be traumatic to lose that much of it at once, it will grow back too. *huggles*

And yay, Latin! And yay for remodeling projects that actually get completed! You know, I'm getting so excited about actually seeing your house this year! *squees* I keep trying to imagine what it looks like, and the kind of environment we'll be in when we're talking to one another, and naturally, I have no idea.... Oh, I can't wait! *squeals again*

Dreams like that can be the scariest (and I wouldn't be surprised if I had one of them before this is over).I'm glad to hear your experience was a good one, though... I think I'll do it Monday. *is determined* Thanks for the encouragement. *huggles back*

You're gonna actually BE here! *dies from the happiness of it* Throughout the day, now I'll randomly think of you (not that I associate you with randomness...heehee) and then I think of you coming in May and. I. Get. So. Excited. *grins* I think the only thing that could make me happier is for all of you gals to come. ;) But it'll be so fun for you to come see our "environment". *happy sigh* There, I've had my squee for the day. =)

Neffy, I know exactly how you feel, especially with the "it's my lifelong friend!" bit. :D I just recently had it done myself... *shock*

Actually, it was terrific. The hairdresser was amazing. :) I was really nervous, but thank the Lord, it turned out great. :) You can do it, dear! Really!! (And no it's not stupid to need "emotional support" for something like this...especially since it's your first time. Heh...wow. That sounded odd, though. LOL )

You survived it? Oh good. I'm feeling a little bolder now. A little. We have a neighbor who's a hairdresser, so I'm going to have her do it, and I'm sure she'll do a good a job (and have some Kleenex handy =P). It is odd, though, to realize I've never had my hair cut. The sheer novelty of the idea is nerve-wracking. *huggles you for the support* ^^

I donated my hair 3 times to locks of love and it is the best feeling to know that a part of you is going to help someone directly! When I first did it the loss of hair I thought was going to bother me more than it actually did...the feeling you get in return replaces the lost hair =) (not to sound cheesy but that's just how it felt)

I was actually just going to donate it again recently but I got a haircut and didn't realize the woman was going to chop off so much so no donating this time, haha

It's so good to hear an account from someone who's been through it and doesn't regret having done so. Thank you. I do feel more confident about going through with this hair-cut. I think I can, I think I can... ^^
