It’s been a bit more than a year since I chopped off all my hair and bleached the token length left. I don’t know if I’ll go quite that short again, but the blonde has been fun.
Some people who think they’re so clever and witty when they ask if it’s true that blonds have more fun, or they jump to blame any mistake or forgetfulness on the blond. I won’t miss them.
It’s funny how different hair makes me stand out. In some cases, that’s a good thing, like at an audition or at a con, or anywhere I want to be noticed and remembered. On the other hand, it’s harder to blend in when I want. Like the trip to Turkey. I was treated like a tourist a lot more than I’m used to.
Overall, it’s been a great year: I traveled a bunch, got back into theater (in a big way), and I wrote a lot. None of that had much to do with the hair color. And one really awesome thing that might be happening because of the blonde is something I can’t share yet.
The year and the blonde have both been fantastic. But I’m still looking forward to going brunette again!
