Sometimes I feel like there are other things in my life that have fallen into the same category. Like the tighter the hold on my class work and other expectations, the more regularly I "need" to keep up the maintenance. The room for some shagginess disappears and I create my own problems by over-achieving. By needing it trimmed, just above the ears and around the back of my neck.
This time around I am so much more attentive to my work, and in some ways it is both good and bad. I am trying to summon my 20 year-old self to get some advice on ditching my schoolwork and going out for pizza.
