Pinkhairdontcare!

So I decided to try something crazy.   I bleached my hair and then I went pink.  I actually kind of really like this!  :)

Nothing much has been going on in my life.  I seem to have taken a very long break from crochet.   I have been trying other hobbies, like nail care and hair dye.   I have found the joy of actually making myself feel good by choosing to do things for myself.  Even if they are as simple as coloring my hair.

I don't even mind getting stared at in public anymore.  It's as if people have never seen a person with colored hair!  Hah.

Purple is my favorite color!

So I dyed my hair lol!


It took two attempts, but I got it.



What did I learn?  It's silly to be afraid of doing something different, because you might find that it's incredibly satisfying to do!
