Making the Cut


Sometimes, even if you don't really want it, you need something drastic to make yourself feel better. In my case it was a hair cut.

After Again (It's different every time!):


I have to say, I feel AMAZING with this hair cut! And it's ... well, it hasn't snapped me out of things, but it's definitely made me feel better. For the first time I don't immediately miss my hair. In fact, I'm looking forward to getting it trimmed. I think it's going to look this way for a while, guys.

So, before a weekend of work, coffee, work and more work, I've got to say two things.

1. Thank you all for responding to my post on Monday. (Stephanie!) It means a lot to me to know I have the support of all you fabulous ladies. I'm still mulling over what I'm going to do. I'm not entirely sure, but I know I'll work it out. After coming out and actually saying my plan out loud, I feel a lot more confident in the things I'm working toward. I don't always believe I deserve good things and I rarely believe that I'll get them, but I'll keep trying. So BIG HUGS and THANK YOU ALL.

2. Special thanks to Terri and Megan Mae for tweeting me on Wednesday. As you may have heard, Philadelphia had a tragic thing happen when a building collapsed. What you may not know (if you're new to the blog) is that is the thrift store I'm at every week. I really appreciate you guys worrying about me. Sometimes, I forget that I DO have friends because I was so used to being alone for a while there. I love you all and I while I'm sorry I worried you (I was NO WHERE NEAR that store Wednesday), it means so much to me that you were worried. LOVE YOU.


See you on the other side of this weekend, guys. Be safe and have fun, and tweet at me. I like that. :-)

Updated to Include: When MCR broke up, that was the thrift store I went to, waiting outside for it to open, because I had nothing else to do (post on MRE mentions it), I just knew I didn't want to be alone.

  2. I've been seeing hints on the FB, but it's even more fabulous seeing all the photos up together! (I sort of want to hack mine off again, but a short cut on me certainly would never be as versatile or cute as yours is, and I think I'd definitely miss my hair as soon as it was gone.)

  3. Oh I absolutely LOVE your new hair-do so, so much - so fresh, so frisky, so versatile and the colour is amazing on you! What horrible news about the building collapse! I didn't know about it and it sounds utterly horrendous! Big hugs to you lovely xoxo

  4. I love love love it. I'll say it a thousand times and it will forever be true! Your new do is so gorgeous on you. I am so glad you went for it and that you're experimenting with it. SO many people fear going short, but there is nothing to fear of fabulousness.

    Also I am so glad you're safe. I would have been devastated to lose you, Meghan. You're one of my best friends. I wouldn't wish a collapsed building on anyone, but the universe didn't want you there that day. Stay safe, and keep in touch. <3 We do worry when we don't hear from people after a disaster.

    1. It was the Salvation Army, which is actually next to the Mutter Museum. After I dropped you at the bus station, I went there for some stuff. Lots of memories at that store!

      Also, I have to say if there was one more thing I wish we could have done, I wish I'd taken you to more thrift stores. There are so many good ones here.

  6. I worried about you immediately when I heard the news of the building collapse and scoured articles to assure myself you weren't hurt. Such a sad story.

    Love your new hair: very cute.
