a few days ago, I had this burning desire to chop my hair off. I couldn't take it anymore! which I know sounds very ridiculous being that I was just at the hairdresser oh what, NOT EVEN TWO WEEKS AGO. heh. but, after trying to grow it out for close to a year now, it seems my hair has suddenly approached that rather awkward length, and no matter what I do to it, it just looks all sorts of yuck-o. seriously.
out of desperation, I dialed up my stylist on saturday and begged her to squeeze me in. unfortunately, she was booked solid and instead, encouraged me to schedule an appointment for later in the week. that would give me a few days to mull it over, she pointed out. she hated for me to make an irrational decision (out of frustration), only to later kick myself in the head. and who knows? maybe I was simply having a bad hair day.
well guess what? the Bad Hair Day has seemingly stretched into days of bad hair.
thick, wavy and unruly, it takes hours (well a long time anyway) to dry. on top of it, I don't take the time (uh, what time?) to properly straighten every single layer like I should, and as a result, I end up with these unattractive lumps and bumps scattered here and there. consequently, all those lumps and bumps, coupled with fans doing The Wave, make it appear as if there's a party going on. in my hair. eeek.
as much as I loathe my hair and its current hijinks, a part of me wants to keep growing it out, just to see if I can actually do it. I don't ever remember having long hair, or at least anything past shoulder length. so if I can make it through this awkward stage, I think it may have potential (think long wavy locks.) at this age, should I even bother?
I need your help! apparently I'm having a mid-life crisis at age 34.
here is me.

I've come to the conclusion that my hair grows out instead of down. no?
that said, I'm going to ask you guys to participate in a poll (see right sidebar ---->) and don't worry, your vote will remain strictly anonymous. I want your true, honest opinion: should I go short? or continue to grow it out?
thanks. and have a nice day :)
