Hair Update

For a while, I haven't bothered explaining this tradition, because I figured everyone was pretty up to date on it. However, I've recently had an influx of new readers, so a small note to the hair update seems appropriate.

All throughout high school, I had long hair. My Freshman Year of college, in the Fall of 2006, I cut it very short and started growing it out again from a shaved head. I began documenting this growth in the Fall of 2008, posting one picture per month on my blog.

Here is what my hair looked like last month:

Here is what my hair looks like this month:








This month marks a significant milestone: it is as long now as it was just before I cut it more than three years ago. By this summer, my hair will be longer than I've ever had it. That's something I'm looking forward to.

I'd like to know how you managed to take the shot. Camera on a timer of have you got incredibly elastic arms?!

Impressive growth there. Aren't you tempted to cut it all off again? Just for the sheer hell of it?

I think you need to post one of with a picture of it short and current. Some of us weren't around when you were bald!

Secret Agent Woman: Well, as long as I could would be like past my feet, so probably not. I will likely let it get longer than it was before, though, maybe mid-back length.

Tattytiara: Thank you.

Mo.Stoneskin: It's neither one, actually. Someone, usually my brother Thomas or a friend, takes the pictures. They think it's for "Faceless Photos."

Gaston Studio: Thanks.

Otherworldlyone: Ha ha, you flatter me.

Madame DeFarge: I can promise you that I never have that temptation. I got that out of my system when I actually did it a few years ago.

Sue: I'll get on it.
