Been an eternity since I've shown up around here, and I apologize; school bit me in the ass and won't let go til the 9th of May. FROWNFACE.
But last Thursday was the first time I got a wash/cut/dry in a salon in FIVE whole years. I've been trimming my headshrub myself since I graduated high school. Take no offense, barbers, this is not due to any personal mistrust.
....okay, I lied, it is entirely due to personal mistrust. Having a boycut for nearly half my life has scarred my body....my mind....my life....FOREVER. I would walk out of every Bed Bath & Beyond broke having to pay for every single mirror/window/porcelain dish/piece of glassware/stainless steel pan/brick wall/childhood dream I shattered. Never will I have a pixie cut EVER again. You'd have to threaten to rip out my capillaries with your bare hands to make me even reconsider!
BUT SERIOUSLY, can this man stop promoting Moroccan Oil?! I get how I have split ends but the bottle of Moroccan Oil he was so persistent in advertising was as much as the haircut itself! Chill, Mr. Valez, CHILL! I'm a college student who purchased this cut through a deal; I'm struggling to pay rent and bills for fresh running water and meals that aren't ramen or lo mein or whatever men; I splurged my life savings to get my ass into this black leather chair for you to give me a decent 'do; I know you probably have good intentions to cure my Mohave Desert locks; I heard you the first time when you recommended Moroccan Oil, damn; repeating it just makes you sound like Gollum from Lord of the Rings (mmmmy Mmmoroccan Oilsssssssssssssss) minus the dissociative identity disorder; I GOT IT! But here's $8. Because you're gay. and sweet. and not a total asshole :D!
Some other updates, hmmmm...... I've been seriously soughting out a graphics tablet to purchase. I think it'll be fun to complement some of my mental images on here with visual aides, which may be good, or bad, case-dependent. And once classes end, I'll be - hopefully - catching up on some long-anticipated behind-the-camera time and will be directing a video with a fellow colleague to enter into a contest. More details shall be provided soon enough!
