You Know What Makes Me Happy? Clean Hair.

You Know What Makes Me Happy? Clean Hair.

You Know What Makes Me Happy Clean Hair Illustration by Amanda Farquharson

You know when you have those days where you just have less confidence, everything makes you feel kind of bitter and enraged and you spend most of the day avoiding people and listening to your headphones? Those days are closely tied to the state of my hair, for me. The thing is, my hair takes SO MUCH TIME. I always judge the day in the morning and sometimes I choose to sacrifice the clean hair for more tea/30 minutes more sleep/breakfast/sanity/play time with our pets. This has been happening LOTS lately, now that I am a hermit. Did you know that I now consider skype with my mom a reason to clean my hair? Ha! She's the only person who will see it AND say it looks nice (Jay, although I love him dearly, won't).

I am going to choose clean hair more often, starting today. I just feel more confident, less grungy, more optimistic about everything when my hair is clean and loose around my shoulders.

P.S. Is this picture too scandalous? Nothing is showing... and it's a cartoon... but you never know...
