Toya's Hair Diary- Drastic Times and Drastic Measures

I am positive I would regret this but this past week I really got the urge to cut off most of my hair.  A few weekend's ago I went to the Oktoberfest/Germantown Street Festival (that's me at the festival with my friend Pricilla) and twisted my hair up the back and teased the front out.    It's an easy style that's perfect for those days where you have to wash your hair but you don't have to time to air dry it all because you have to get out of the house.  I loved it!  Being the 80's nostalgiaholic that I am, I started thinking about rocking my hair like this (keytar optional but much desired):

Did anyone else think that the girl playing keytar in Bobby Brown's "My Prerogative" video was Holly Robinson-Peete from 21 Jump Street from back in the day?  Was that just me?

I fully understand that I have more options with more hair and my trusty go to afro puff would be gone but there's nothing like the feeling of a fresh cut.  I miss a good line up.  And while I would be in love with my sassy hair cut for about 2 weeks, there's no hiding a bad hair day once it happens outside of wearing a hat, which I have plenty of. I think wanting to go back and cut off most of one's hair is something that happens to newer transitioners.  Waiting for your hair to get past the in between awkward stage can be such a pain.  It took me about five years from my first Big Chop to get to this:

Seriously, what was I thinking when I cut my hair in the first place?  You really don't know what you've got 'til it's gone do you?  I think I've found my answer.  Wait it out, don't cut my hair, and enjoy my options.
