For quite a while, I have been growing my hair out. I thought this was a great idea, until I realized how long the "awkward in-between stage" was lasting, and how much longer it was going to last, and added the fact that I will probably end up just wearing my hair in a ponytail most of the time. I began to wonder, "Why am I going through all of this just so I can wear my hair in a ponytail? I could cut it and it could look really cute without me having to do very much at all." So that is what I did.
