Pixie cuts, courting soulmates and going home

So there are three things I'd like to discuss with you today. Okay maybe four. Or five. Let's just see where this post goes.

Pixie cut and saving shampoos





So last Sunday I got a pixie cut. Almost the same one I got three years ago. And so, I have created pros and cons of having short hair.

Pros:

  1. You save on both shampoo and conditioner. I mean, you don't have to put so much effort on cleaning your hair when it's this short!
  2. It's easy to style. You can just handcomb it and voila! You're good to go.
  3. Less heat. This was my primary reason when I decided to get a cut. With my hair going below my breasts, it was getting hotter when I let it lose.
  4. You stand out. My professor once told me when I had my first pixie cut that it made me stand out.
  5. No more bed hair! 
  6. Save on hair ties and scrunchies! The thing with long hair is that you have to have a scrunchie wherever you went in case of emergencies, ei, you had a bad hair day. Now I don't have to, so there are less chances of losing them to my bottomless bag.
  7. Look fierce. No more explaination.
  8. Look younger. It really does take years off your face.
Cons:
  1. You'll be mistaken as a tomboy, or a boy. This is why I like wearing dresses and shorts. This isn't really a problem for me, since I'm so girly at times that I gross myself out. I am a tomboy a bit, but not so much.
  2. People you know make fun of you. For example, my lovable brother, who has taken it upon himself to call me "bro". Grr.
  3. Nothing follows.
Courting my soulmate

Since my 1st book is still waiting for publishers to nibble it, I'm working on my second book, my first whole novel. I've never written anything like this. If you check my Wattpad account, you'd see that I haven't finished any story. I'm the type who wants to write in one sitting. So a whole novel will be challenging, and I love my plot so far.

Target: 1000 words or 1 chapter at least per day.

Self-publishing

I gave myself my own deadline: If I don't get any answer by any editors by the end of January, then I'd self-publish it. I do still hope it doesn't go that far though. 

Going home

So on January 10, I will be gong back to Tacloban for good. With classes starting next Monday, I have to. So there would be less blog posts, even none at all since I don't know the strength of the internet, plus we would be using a generator since we still don't have electricity at home. So, phew. It's a big change indeed.

Hope all goes well! :D

Let's end this with a weird photo shall we? Like my blog's FB page? Puhlease? https://www.facebook.com/dimperfectprincess

  1. Aww, it came out so good! I love it. I have very curly hair & straighten it with keratin, so I have to keep mine really long.

  2. You look adorable with short hair and long hair, so I think you're safe no matter what. The good thing about self-publishing is that YOU control the price, so there's that. :)

  4. HA! I gave the husband the same list of pro's every time I want to cut my hair! I don't go as short as a pixie cut, but I cut it to just barely above shoulder length. He much prefers LONG hair. My "pros" don't hold much weight, but I go ahead and do it anyway. lol.

  15. I've never done quite so much of a change on my hair as you did but it always feels so odd when you brush it for the first couple of days.

    Good luck with your novel! x

  19. I love your hair, it is really cute. Brother's are fun for teasing. I am too much of a tomboy to be able to wear short hair :( I wish you luck when you return home and in getting your news on being published. I hope you are able to post some once you get there as I have really come to enjoy your stories. I also love the updates and hope to hear some positive ones about your area where you live.

  20. So much going on.. Lol! I love the pixie cut it looks great on you. I wish you well with finding an editor. I don't even want to begin to imagine how stressful that is.

    Ps: Be safe on your trip to Tacloban!

  21. Nice. I am not a huge fan of pixie cut but I do know people who look adorable with it. I think it has to do with the individual faces.

  29. I love the pixie cut! My hair is short too. I had grown it out for a full year and HAD to cut it. It was too hot on my neck and I didn't feel sexy. I cut it off and now I feel sexy fierce! RAWR! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow, that is a drastic change. I've always loved short haircuts but they just don't look good on my facial shape. The cut looks great on you and you can totally pull it off.
