Hello fellow human beings. Or aliens. Or evil banana-cucumber-parrot hybrids. Whichever one makes you feel like you.
So, I’ve recently been thinking. (Yes, that is a first.) I’ve been really wanting to highlight my hair, but also I want to see what it would be like if it was cut.
I have wavy hair that only looks straight because it’s elbow length. I’m worried if I cut it it’ll poof up.
But blond highlights, even temporarily, could damage hair.
I want to know what you guys think. Which one should I do? Please let me know, because I really want to do something with my hair.
For those of you who are wondering about my sanity – I’m fine. My mom’s going to talk to a hair stylist about me temporarily or even permanently going blond.
And before you immediately comment “CUT” then I’ll just say that I have had one haircut ever and it was a trim. When I was 6. I don’t remember how it looked but it got trimmed to my shoulders because when I was 6, my hair was only a little past shoulder length.
So, I’m really feeling the hair style changing vibes here.
Please, please let me know. Cut or highlight? And how short should I cut it? What shade of blond should the highlights be.
(blond only because my mom said blue hair isn’t ok for all the things i do but blond is a nice color)
If you guys pick highlight, I’m going to do this without bleach and it should go away after like a month if I do it temporarily. I’m SO extremely confused on what I should do!
Next Section: Before the Blog
I’m a relatively new blogger. When I started this blog, I wanted to express myself through writing or sharing images online. I love blogging and it’s become so much of a passion for me. Blogging is just amazing.
But what was before the blog?
Before the blog, I still did Tae Kwon Do. I still had friends, I still studied spelling.
But I really felt that I wanted to express my feelings, and that they were building up inside me. This isn’t like a depression thing, I just wanted to share my thoughts, dreams, and hopes with readers.
I remember how I found WordPress, and it was a sad story.
If you recall my friend Keya from Tae Kwon Do, the amazing human being who smiles through a sad time, well, there’s more to the story.
Keya had a brother named Rohan. Rohan was a great kid. He was sweet and caring to everyone, and extremely smart.
In September 2018, he was diagnosed with a specific type of brain cancer called pediatric glioblastoma. I didn’t realize. I didn’t know. I thought I was the most important.
I should have known Rohan more. I should have talked to him, played with him, helped him. I miss Rohan. I really do.
In June of 2019, Rohan passed away, exactly one month before his ninth birthday. He battled hard and strong. He was a fighter.
And his parents took to WordPress since the diagnosis to share everything about the battle. Every surgery, emergency hospital visit, every picture and video of Rohan being Rohan.
Rohan’s battle has inspired me. It has pushed me to be a better person and focus on the good things in life.
I clicked that “create blog” button for Rohan Shamit Sikotra. I clicked it so I could share my life with the world too.
Every time I write a post, I think of him. I know Rohan went to heaven. I know he’s sitting up there right now. Maybe even watching me.
This has been a hard post for me to write, but I wanted to write it for Rohan and his grieving family.
