Why You Should Cut Your Hair


You can always tell how dull a person is by the things that excite them. For me it’s, in no specific order : 
1. Getting a package in the mail
2. Falling asleep before 12 and 
3. Getting a hair cut. 
So yeah, not much of a wild side there.

I used to get really agitated whenever I had to go to the hairdresser. This was mostly because my friends and I had this unspoken competition that whoever had the longest hair was decidedly the 'coolest' person in the group. We were 11. After 13 years of having the same hairstyle, I finally decided that it was time for a change. When I was 15 I became so fixated with getting a hair cut to the point where I went to the hairdressers every month and the results were ha ha not good. Obviously. Ever since then, I've tried to change my hairstyle at least once every year just to keep things fresh.

I constantly crave change and I find it really crazy how a simple hair cut makes me feel like such a different person. Its such a small difference but it makes all the difference. Also, the trill of getting a haircut is not something to laugh at. Its scary not knowing how you're gonna look after a drastic cut but that's kinda the best part. Its exciting and new and it just goes to prove that you don't need to do something big like move or get a new car (idk) to feel the gratification of a change. Just cut your hair ... but not yourself, please God don't do it yourself.

New Years Resolutions



2016 was really ... something.

But I learned a lot this year. 2016 opened my eyes to the true depth of the social and environmental issues that exist and are worsening in society. I also realised that these problems are not going to solve themselves and ignorance only invites further ignorance. So this year, 2017, is going to be the year I voice out more of my opinions and educate myself further on these issues. I also realised that only you can bring about a real change in your own life so in 2017 I am going to stop complaining and start doing with these resolutions :

1. Take more pictures to improve my photography skills
2. Be vegetarian either twice/three days a week or for one meal per day
3. Be around genuinely positive and good people
4. Draw more and improve on digital art. Hopefully dipping into animation by the end of they year.
5. Read more. At least 10 books this year. 
6. Blog and vlog more. Deeply regret the neglect of both Youtube and my blog last year.
7. Educate myself more on social and political issues.
8. Declutter more and stay organised. (in life and in physical objects)
9. Learn a new language and/or improve on the guitar.
10. Take up sports again. (badminton/swimming/jogging)

I know these are pretty 'out there' but hey I'm gonna be 20 this year and heck no am I gonna let my 'twenties' gonna be as bad as my teenage years.
