Do as I say, not as I do

Today I’m going to teach a valuable life lesson.  That life lesson is:

DO NOT GET A DRASTIC HAIRCUT WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE IN YOUR LIFE IS ALSO ABOUT TO CHANGE

In case you couldn’t guess from the title of this post, I’m dishing out this piece of advice because that is exactly when I’ve done, and it was one of the worst ideas I’ve ever had (hard to believe, but even so).  The haircut is just all kinds of wrong for me, which wouldn’t really be an issue if everything else was copacetic and I could just twiddle my thumbs until it grew out.

The problem is that I already have a lot of stress surrounding my move and the effect it’s having on pretty much every aspect of my life.  I didn’t need to add to that a haircut I completely hate, something which was my own doing.  Of all the things I worried would go wrong in this process, I never thought one of them would be something I intentionally did.

If haircuts (good or bad) aren’t really something you worry about, allow my to simplify this for you:

When you’re going through a lot of changes in your life, don’t arbitrarily add changes

You’re putting yourself through enough.  The changes are good but they’ll get even harder before the big payoff.  Go easy on yourself.  Save the next big thing for when everything else has settled down.  And just get a trim, you freaking idiot.
