I did it.
And I couldn't be happier.
In case you can't tell, I chopped all my hair off. It has probably been one of the most liberating experiences of my life. While I literally closed my eyes for the first few snips, I knew I was letting go of years worth of emotional baggage, along with my own notion of what makes me "beautiful".
Although I can go on for days about how cutting my hair is a way to portray my belief in undoing gender hierarchies, just know the sentiment is there, and we can save it for another day.
For now, its all about me--HASHTAG leoproblems!
So world, meet the side of my head!
(...and for those wondering, the below picture is my reaction to some mean old fat lady telling me my shorts are too short. Did she even see my side-boob?)
