Haircut and Homos

Hello, everyone! Guess what? I finally got that haircut I've been teasing you with for weeks!

Do you like? I like. SO much. My head feels so much lighter. My short hair dries on its own in less than twenty minutes, as opposed to the hour and a half that my long hair took. I can buy shampoo half as often as I used to. And...AND! styles itself pretty well on its own. No awkward flip-outs. I can let it air-dry and not have to put it immediately in a ponytail. That's the punchline.

I feel strongly that this haircut was a positive life decision.

In other news, I just finished Maureen Johnson's The Bermudez Triangle. I thought it was great. There's really nothing monumental or life-altering about the story, but that's why it's so good. They're just three normal teenage girls dealing with life and relationships. Some of these relationships happen to be lesbian relationships, but it didn't really. I really felt like I understood their pain, even though I've never dated a girl. It's not a book about lesbians; it's a book about people. Nothing about the book shouts, "OMG LOOK WE'RE GAAAAAAAYYYYYY." The story is interesting, yes, but bigger deal is what the book accomplishes - normalcy.

I feel like I didn't explain it very well. It's also nearly 4:00 AM.

That's all for tonight. I'm REALLY trying to post a video or two before I leave for Australia/New Zealand. Video-making is so much harder when I live at home. Siiiiiigh.

Did I mention that I'm going to New Zealand and Australia? Oh. I am.

  1. I love your new haircut. And the the new layout. :-)

    (Sorry if it's not new, I read in google reader and thus one cannot see layouts...

  2. Like the average guy, I fail to see the difference in your hair but am inclined to say that it looks nice, which it definitely does.

    It's one of those situations in which a girl asks you "does something look different?" And as a guy, you scratch your head and wonder what's different as you wait for her to reveal something that you otherwise wouldn't have immediately noticed.

    The Bermudez Triangle sounds like an interesting read. I might have to check it out. I have only read one book by Maureen Johnson and I thought it was alright.

  3. Thanks, guys! :-)

    @Adolfo You would notice if you saw it in person. It's SO much shorter. It's pretty drastic.
