A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

Gray (Grey)

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Contrary to the title, this blog has nothing to do with the smutty book series or anatomy of any kind. If you've lost interest, you don't need to read any further.

No, friends, this blog is about hair. Ever since I was 18-years-old, I've had gray hair. This is not an exaggeration. In fact, in college, Teresa and I used to yank each others' grays out... especially when we couldn't see them. 

Recently, I've noticed an increase in gray hair. I have many thoughts on this, but mostly I think the following: 

1. I needed to dye my hair. So, I put in some coppery burgundy highlights. (Still didn't hide all the gray.) (See below.)
2. I'm getting older. Like, almost 30 older. Me and my gray hairs are old. 
3. I must be stressed. This thought always leads me to think about all the things I'm involved in including but not limited to:
   Teaching
   The newspaper
   Jazzercise
   Writing for The Courier at Saint Mary's
   Mentor Committee Member
   Public Relations Committee Member
   Tattered Pages Book Club
   FYI/STAND Club
   Delta Kappa Gamma
   Volunteering at Ronald McDonald Family Room
   Other things I'm forgetting
When I see it all listed, it's shocking I'm not ENTIRELY gray.

So, gray hair it is. I may be getting older, but I can still run like a youngin'! 
New hair (bangs included!). Note the hideous yellow bathroom lighting.

  1. I love it, it is so cute. Don't worry about the gray hairs, that is why they have salons and hair coloring products. Xoxo

  4. I plucked a few more grays last night. :) The side bangs are driving me CRAZY today! I think it's probably because I tried to do my hair (wet to styled) in three minutes flat and didn't use any hairspray to hold them. Here's hoping that tomorrow goes better!

    I promise, Annette, no giving up Jazzercise! :) I need it (and to spend time with all of you, of course!)
