I decided, only today, that once a month I am going to do something outrageous, starting today. This evening, I did something I've been wanting to do for a while, but been a little hesitant about doing.
Just over a year ago I discovered hair dye. I made all the necessary enquiries beforehand, asking my cousin's advice about which brand to use, and deciding to use only semi-permanent (I would never use permanent hair dye!) The colour I chose the first time was called caramel, only a step up from my own natural hair colour, and hardly anyone noticed the difference. I used darker colours the second and third time round, chocolate and dark brown, and it was only really on the third occasion that people did notice the difference without being prompted. For years I wondered what my hair would look like if I dyed it black. About an hour ago I found out!
This evening I dyed my hair black (photos to come) as my act of outrageousness this month! As before, I used semi permanent hair dye so it should fade over with the next twenty-eight hair washes or so. I really like it as a change, and people are bound to notice this time!
My other New Year's Resolutions include:
1) Stop biting my fingernails (so far I have been fairly successful)
2) Produce a final draft of my novel
3) Read the complete plays of Shakespeare
Spud is here until Tuesday. I'm dreading his return home, but the good news is he'll be back for another visit next month! :)
