I’m going back to the 90s. And not in a good way.
I’m aiming to try as many different looks as possible while I’m in a transitional phase (come November, my job is dissolved, effectively meaning I’m laid off, and come December, I’m moving to Honolulu where I hopefully land a job). So for the next 4-5 months, I’m going to be experimenting with Man Repeller style.
I got a perm–not the good kind you see in Korean Dramas–but a straight up Jew Fro (no offense meant to my lovely Jewish readers). Basically, the idea I had in my head of gorgeous waves didn’t play out well in real life. I got two pairs of hipster glasses (Ray-Ban, of course)–except with the lenses IN, and with an actual prescription. I also got braces (InvisAligns), which gives me a slightly weird accent and slur, as if I have tons of saliva in my mouth. With these changes, I’m pretty much as unattractive as you can get.
If my life were a romantic comedy, I’d be Laney Boggs, but before the whole defining moment Zach and Mackenzie Siler reinvent her as a cute girl in a red silk dress and Zach falls in love with his heart in his teenage throat as she descends the stairs. (She’s All That.)
The realization that I’ve gone from semi-cute, vivacious girl with vain poses and wanna-be sultry expressions in set of 5 canned poses, to a highly man-repellent creature with a bird’s nest for hair is both hilarious and slightly humbling. My attempt to transform from a straight haired girl to one with luxurious, large-bodied waves wholly backfired. So now I have a FOB Fro (you’ll see lots of girls in Japan and Korea sporting big-assed afro-like perms, but none here in North America), big glasses and a weird accent, and I’m nowhere near attractive.
I guess it doesn’t matter now, though. I’m married. I don’t need to impress anyone anymore, right? (^___,^)
I’ll post the Hooping vlog tomorrow. I’ve been so busy…editing takes a back seat.
