It’s been a long time since I did a Sunday confessions post, so why not?
I’ve been thinking about dying my hair for about two years, but haven’t gotten around to it because I’m too cheap. Dude, girl hair is expensive, and it’s hard enough for me to consistently get hair cuts, let alone maintain a dye job. Also, I’m really indecisive about dying it because I really like my natural color. I thought about going blonde for a while, which a lot of my friends are skeptical about, but my mom used to be bleach blonde and considering we’re almost identical I think maybe I could pull it off. And more than anything, I want to dye it blue, but I need to be in a more comfortable position career-wise before I can make that leap.
I judge people based on the bad behavior of their pets. If your dog barks at me and jumps on me when I enter your house and won’t leave me alone while I’m eating, I’m judging you. Dogs are smart and very susceptible to training, especially when diligently administered by someone they love, so if your dog behaves badly, it’s probably your fault. Teach it some manners! Don’t allow it to piss of your neighbors and annoy your guests! I love dogs, but there is nothing worse than an obnoxious pet, especially when it’s obvious that no one is trying to instill respectful behaviors. Also, I hate when people treat their pets like they are humans — this is not healthy for anyone involved.
I hate shaving my legs. So….I don’t do it that often. That’s gross, right? Yeah, I don’t really give a shit. It’s a silly, sexist practice, but mostly I’m lazy and fairly confident that no one is paying very close attention to my legs. Especially in the winter, when they never see the light of day — shaving is a waste of my time. Sorry I’m not sorry.
I’m obsessed with Third Eye Blind. I’m a huge nineties music fan in general, but Third Eye Blind is one of my favorite bands of all time. I’ve liked them pretty much for as long as I can remember – I used to tape their songs off the radio when I was in second grade (“Semi-Charmed Life” was featured multiple times on my two favorite adolescent mix tapes, “Kool Songs” and “Kool Songs 2”) and I rediscovered them in high school when I bought their self-titled album for $2 at a used record store. Everyone knows their hit songs (which are awesome nineties classics) but their best are the lesser-known songs, and some of my favorites are from their most recent album, Ursa Major (yes, they’re still a band). I’ve seen them in concert three times, and I will go see them again at any opportunity I get. I’ve even been thinking about a 3eb themed tattoo (this one is one of my favorite tattoos I’ve seen).
I’ve recently become tattoo obsessed. I just got my first tattoo a few months ago, and ever since then I’ve been fantasizing about covering my body with all kinds of artwork, and I already have my next few tattoos planned out. I’m leery about them at the same time, though, because just like with the blue hair, I’m concerned about how tattoos could affect my career. I hate that that has to be a concern, but I know that it’s a reality, especially in a corporate environment like I’m in now. I’m really lucky that my company actually allows piercings and visible tattoos, but I know a lot of other places don’t, so I don’t want to limit myself, for now anyway. That just means that the normally non-visible parts of my body are going to get covered pretty quickly.
