hair gerbils

I have been itching to cut my hair all day. For some reason, it has really been bothering me today. I think it was becasue of the Mexican hat I wore for advisory dress down day (We were Peruvians-the motto being-the bigger your hat is the cooler you are). But I really dislike my shoulder lenght hair intensely. I've been wanting to cut it all off really short for a while, but I've been putting it off because I don't want any more stress. Because on top of being the Girl-who-does-wrestling, in my small highschool I would also gain the title of the Weird-girl-who-cut-her-hair-almost-like a-guy's. I don't really want people staring at me anymore than they do already for my wrestling sweatshirt and guy's clothes. Is my personal satisfaction worth the stares? The obvious answer would be of course it is, but it is also obviously not that easy. I may be also making a mountain out of a molehill. Most people might not even care. Anyone have any good ideas for a comeback when people go, "Wow.. you cut your hair". I'm thinking something along the lines of "This is what happened when let my gerbils play with scissors". THen again I may chicken out and not do it, or feel totally different about it tommorow. Speaking of tommorow, tommorrow is National Hunger Awareness day, and our school is doing a optional fast that the high school students can participate in. I really want to participate in it, but I really can't because I'm still gaining back the last few pounds from my bout with anorexia. I could fast during the school day, and have lunch when I got home, but would that really just be not worth it? I would probably feel bad about it too. Well, there isn't really any pressure for students to do it, but I already signed up for it without thinking and I don't want to back out of it, but I don't want to pretend to participate in it either. I could just do the semi-embarrasing thing and back out of it tommorow and just contribute a donation,

Oh wow

Cut it if you feel like it. If you don't leave it. As for the hunger thing I don't really think you should do the fast back out and make a
donation. You don't need to do that to your body its already struggling to put weight back on don't make it fight harder. I think you school won't make a big deal out of your hair good luck ;0

Don't worry you're just as sane as I am
