It's time for another hair blog. I mean, I don't talk about my hair ENOUGH on this blog, right? But seriously, I have been having several identity crises lately. Some of these crises involve jewelry--what kind of jewelry should I wear? Big, chunky, statement pieces, or dainty, delicate things? And if someone asks me what colors I like, what do I say? The only thing I know is that I prefer silver over gold. Dat all. This caused a lot of sweating and embarrassment when I went to see the "Pearl Lady" in Tienmu. Other crises involve the content and tone of my blog--should I switch to a more family-oriented blog and stop pretending that the world really cares about MY misadventures? Should I stop blogging altogether to pursue other worthy activities, such as Facebook? Should I just change my profile and layout? (See new profile and layout.)
But the most serious of crises has, of course, to do with my hair. Lately I have been wondering if I need a hair identity. For the past 29 years, my hairdentity has been that I HAVE no hairdentity. My hair changes several times year. I am not one of those people who always has short hair, or a bob, or long hair. I am never satisfied. The question is, do I NEED to be satisfied? Is my hairdentity simply one of CHANGE, not stagnation? Or, should I consider the fact that I am approaching 30? Does turning 30 mean that I need to settle down, become an adult, find a style that suits me, and stick with it? So many decisions! I look at photos of myself with very long hair and very short hair and neither is particularly attractive. But I AM NOT PARTICULARLY ATTRACTIVE in any form, so photos are not the best indicator. What do you think? I feel a poll coming on (perhaps it will be more widely voted on and understood than my last disaster about television aliases--another indication that I'm a blogging has-been and that I need to give up and switch to a more shallow mode of expression!!!) What should I do?
