Great Grow Out - Day 199

This photo is from day 199 of the Great Grow Out. I know I haven't been keeping up with this blog lately, but I've been busy with school, football, online classes and that blasted "other" blog. If you really want to know what I've been up to, check in with the Blessings Blog.

As part of my homework for my MJC online class, we had to talk about any online presence that we have so I listed the website. I received 3 comments back (all positive) but the part that cracked me up is that people actually made comments about growing out my hair. These people don't know me at all, but they are still interested in hearing how the process is going.

I get people coming up to me all the time and asking about my hair. Most are honest enough to say they notice a difference and I really haven't had anyone say they didn't like the new look. But I'm still just in shock over the amount of attention my hair receives... so if you're interested... here's the truth!

I hate it. It's in a middle stage right now where it's too short to leave straight, and too long to curl. I've resorted to using velcro rollers and hairspray to style it which leaves me with BIG TEXAS HAIR! Ick. I haven't colored it in about 6 weeks, so the big patch of grey right in the front by my cow lick is really obvious... but this part doesn't bother me. As a matter of fact, I like it because it's a constant reminder of the fact that it IS growing. It's very frustrating right now, but I am committed to at least 365 days of growth before I make a final decision about style and length. Keep checking in with me for updates.

By the way... Yes... that is the same dress I'm wearing. It's my sister-in-laws and I really like it so I wore it again to a wedding on Saturday.
