(500) Days of My Bangs and I

"You got bangs."

Why yes I did.

This statement was told to me about fifteen times today, by different people who noticed that I got my hair cut. How do I like it? I am in love with my bangs.

About two weeks ago I found a picture online of a woman who looked almost exactly like me, but with bangs. The thought to get bangs again had never entered my mind. But I thought, why not? It's just my hair and it will be a change, right in time for the new year. So The Mother called up the woman that does our hair. Turns out she was available, right in time. I was so excited.

But I had to wait three days.

I busied myself with other things. I watched (500) Days of Summer over and over and over. I fell in love with the idea of Summer and Tom together, but more importantly I fell in love with her haircut. I wanted it. I wanted it bad. I waited and waited.

And then the day came.

When she cut them, it was a major shock. There was hair... on my forehead! But I came to terms and I fell in love. Just like Tom. Except he fell in love with Summer.

p.s.- If you have not seen (500) Days of Summer, go see it right now! It is my favorite movie and I cannot stop watching it. Am I keeping my bangs for 500 days? Maybe, just maybe.

Ah, (500) Days of Summer is just amazing, despite it being the dead of winter :D I've always wanted to get bangs, but I know that they'd probably just look wrong on me. But Zooey Deschanel's are very enviable! And I'm sure yours are too :) Glad you like them!
