I want this hair and that body!!!! SEXY
I am currently 20 days out from leave, and all I can think about is cutting my hair off. I am at the point, I would rather just cut it off the night before I get on the MRAP on leave, than wander around Paris looking for a barber/beautician to cut my hair off. I know for some, the BC is a dramatic choice. Well, with this being my second time...I look forward to it. For some reason I believe I will feel more free. Happier even. A lot of my male friends have told me, they don't like the afro. I read one blog which stated that she didn't get as many "hollas" from men when she was natural. I even got the, "are you trying to start another revolution. The first time I was natural, I was honestly very self conscious and had low self esteem. I allowed other's opinions to bring me down. So how is this time different from three years ago? The difference between me now and then is a deployment. A year of self reflection on me. A year that allows me to be around just me, to be as antisocial as I want and to sit and have to deal with me. So yes, I am big chopping soon, whether it be in Paris, or Kuwait or Prague...the weight of this hair is leaving.
