I just couldn't stand it anymore. Up until this week, my hair was long-ish, below my shoulders. But it was always up in a ponytail or clip of some sort. I have fine, thin hair, which I'm convinced is getting thinner as I get older. So this week I decided to do away with it all. I was so fed up with it I was actually somewhat tempted to shave it all off (although no one believes I was serious about this). So this was my compromise. It feels awesome!
