Change of Plans

Having seen the extremely powerful video about Kony 2012, I am more certain about what I want to do. I have received 4 out of 5 letters from the PhD programs to which I applied and they have all been rejections. This is a sign. I have always wanted to go out and do something that is not for me but is for the entire world and all her people. This year I am going to do that. I am going to participate in something like this, whether it be the Peace Corps or some kind of equivalent. This is what I want to do. I want to be an active part of changing this world for the better, out there on the front lines. I am ready for this.


New Haircut?

It's been an extremely long time since I've written. I am in no mood to fill in my readers with the events of the past month or so since I've last written. Instead, I am going to make a brief mention of something extreme I am planning to do.

I want to cut my hair. It's just about time for the next hair donation! My hair is not quite as long as it was the first time I donated, but I plan to donate an equal amount. Last time, I donated about 14 inches of hair and had a slightly-shorter than chin-length. In order to do this, I am going for a drastic cut.

I did some research and found a couple salons that offer free cuts to anyone donating hair. One place looks particularly attractive, mostly because they have expensive prices and "specialist" stylists with bios on the website. I figure if there are stylists who specialize in specific hair types, I would be getting a quality cut by someone who knows what they're doing and knows how to handle my hair. Since this is a look I have never attempted, I figure this is the safest bet.

I've also decided to donate to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths Program. The Salon I'm looking at let's me choose where I want to donate, and I think Pantene has the best program.

I want to do this after Easter. This way I have enough time to play around with my new look before graduation! This is also going to be a time where the stress of comps is over the stress of finals won't have set in yet. I'm pretty excited about it, not gonna lie. ;)
