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.
