Just to show hubby I wasn't giving up...

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I came home with a dramatic hair cut, just like I would if I had been accepted into my first choice for nursing school after all. The whole reason I joined Spark was because I was going to be doing a group interview alongside people a lot younger than me at this nursing school. And then I wasn't chosen. I do have an essay to write at nursing school number 2 on April 6th, though.

Since my grades are so high and I have worked so hard, I felt terribly deflated and powerless last night. Like I did all that work for NOTHING! (Which of course isn't true.) This morning I wanted to show my husband I hadn't given up. So I went to get a haircut and perm anyway.

It was kind of fun. I almost always cut my own hair because it seems no one ever does what I ask them to, but this experience was really great. The stylist (Brigitte at DuBonne's in Eugene, Oregon) listened well. She cut it exactly the way I asked (but better!) She gave me a nice wave - no poodle look for me!

She was amused and kind about the fact that I didn't know how to do a lot of girl stuff, so she showed me how to make pretty ponytails. She demonstrated a 1940's glamour do's with big rollers, pins and hairspray. She was soooo nice. I paid a lot, but I was entertained and pampered, too.

I left some hair for Locks of Love. Not as much as I could have if I hadn't lopped off 8 inches a few months ago, but about 6 inches worth.

I even feel motivated to stay on my diet and exercise program, even without the big interview that motivated me to join Spark.

    Sorry about the interview, but there will be other opportunities. Good for you getting your mini-makeover. I like a wash and go hair style without fuss myself.
    Keep Sparking!
