Time for Change

Why do so many of my blog titles reference song titles/lyrics, books, and movies? It seems to happen on its own. Someday I will come up with my own original ideas for titles. Until then, I will steal like the thieving thief I am.

And now...on to the real point of this post.

The times they are a-changin'. (There I go again, stealing like a sinner.) Things are changing because I am thirsty for change. I've got a couple of superficial changes that are coming up very soon (this week, in fact) and are very exciting.

-New eyeballs! I'm having Lasik on Friday! Here's what I look like without specs:

Correction: That is what I look like without specs when I've had my makeup done by a professional and have a professional photographer taking my picture.

-New hair! I'm getting a long-overdue haircut on Thursday after work. I have been growing my hair out since Roy and I started dating, and now I'm over it. Here's the look that I want:

I've had my hair cut short before, and I liked it. This picture is from 2005.

I think it's going to work out. I am super excited. I am not very adventurous when it comes to my hair. For me to attempt something like this is pretty huge. I did have an A-line hairstyle for awhile back before I ever met Roy, but the lady who cut it didn't really know what she was doing. It was supposed to look like this:

But it came out looking not so hot. There's a reason I have no pictures to share.

But I have finally decided to try again! I'm done with my overly stringy and boring long hair.

-Lastly (and this is a not-so-superficial change), I'm finally going to court on Thursday morning to have my name legally changed. After over a year, I will finally have my so-cute-I-could-be-mistaken-for-a-stripper last name.

There are other (big) changes coming up as well. Totally exciting, totally scary. Stay tuned for those - they are still too new to blog about. It takes me awhile to process, yo.
