New Year... New Look

The New Year always brings new things to life. We all make our 'goals' that we all know we will never accomplish. I too made goals for the year and I am determined to stick to it and reach them. Last year was a rough year for me. I went through alot from graduating EAC to moving to starting a new school and two new jobs. I rode in the front seat of the emotional rollercoaster. This year I have high hopes for a better life and new adventures. I guess you can say I have a new look on life. Not only did I change my views of life and of the expectations of this year, I changed my own look. I randomly went to Sally's the day after Christmas with Shanna and bought hair dye. I got really sick and was unable to dye it the next day like I wanted to and by the time New Year's Eve came around I was starting to change my mind about dying it. It was a dark red/brown color and I had never done something that extreme before. I have never dyed my hair one solid color. Just highlights. Well, after doing all this great thinking during my down time while being sick, I decided to just do it. So, at 9pm on New Year's Day, I got the dye out and went at it. At first I thought I looked like a Goth and I will admit, I cried. I hated it. I went to work the next day and got alot of compliments on it so I decided I would give it another try. Then yesterday on my way to Wal-Mart I decided to get it cut. I went to this little walk in place next to Sally's and chopped it all off. There's definately no turning back now. I got up this morning and got ready for church. After doing my hair and putting my new BedHead makeup on, I felt so much better. I'm starting to really like it and I sure dont care if others do or not. I went out on a limb and changed my look. Something that I normally would never do. I'm pretty proud of myself. Here's the pictures...
