I feel kind of silly – well, kind of girly – to be bummed about this, but I just learned my hair stylist moved to Baltimore last month. She didn’t exactly do anything amazing with my hair, but I liked her a lot and had seen her for maybe 10 years. She was one of the first people I came out to (in college) who was neither a friend, family member, or doctor, and going to the salon where she worked of the first publicly ‘girly’ things I allowed myself to do.

In a small way, this makes my life easier, since I had to come up to Evanston instead of going to one of the many salons down the street from me in Chicago. At the same time, I’m going to miss having someone I know so well – and who knows me – and have to search out someone new.

Stay tuned, though! Hopefully I’ll come back with photos of an amazing new haircut…

My alarm is a Bose stereo, undoubtedly overkill for the simple jobs of telling time and waking me, but I like it.

Definitely just found a gray hair.


Just in time for my 25th birthday, too. (Which is on Sunday, BTW.)
