I Turned 20 Yesterday.




I also cut my hair yesterday. I was scared, but it was definitely something I had been thinking about since last school year. And the answer to your question is, "Because I wanted to." Before I did the "big chop", I found myself thinking about what those close to me, and even those not so close to me, would think about the new do. And in all honesty, their opinions really don't matter. As India.Arie said, "I am not my hair."

Other things I learned on November 5th include:
–My roommates are my sisters, truly. It is on that "you are my sister for life" type of thing. I knew this previous to November fifth, but you know there are just some moments when the things you know are further proved.
–God has truly sent some beautiful people into my life. I got an unexpected call from a classmate, and my partner in programming bought cake to our meeting. These are not super big things, but the fact that they took the time out to think about me and improve my day made me smile. Like seriously, I love my life.

May I continue to grow and my those friendships flourish like flowers in Spring.
