A Little Red Change

Do you ever feel like you just need to make a change?

Not a big change. I never get the urge to auction my life off on Ebay (all yours for one low price – a Mazda, stressful medical exams, & crazy dogs! BUY NOW)…that’s going too far…especially for someone who gets palpitations thinking about changing blog headers and profile pictures.

Just little things.

I’m pretty good at neglecting my hair – last year I went a full 11 months without so much as a trim (I know…stop judging me…). Usually this is because I’m too lazy to get an appointment, lately it’s been because I’m ridiculously busy on my Ob/Gyn rotation.

But, today we got out of lecture unusually early and I decided I would make a change.

Red Hair

I’m still “processing” the new hair color, so please refrain from asking me to change my email address or Twitter icon for at least the next 6 weeks. I can only handle so much, people.

Now excuse me…the landline is ringing and I need to balance my check book.

  • You could look beautiful in whatever hair color you decide…but I’m really liking the red, nevertheless! Yay for getting out early – time well spent =) Happy Weekend!!

  • ooooh i really like the hair! i force myself to get a cut every time I go home so that it never gets too long- never gotten my hair cut in the place I live 11.5 months out of the year haha.

  • I really like the red too! To answer your question (was it a rhetorical?) at the beginning of your post: YES! Dying my hair always comes to mind, but I end up chickening out. Once I got a super short hair cut that did look nice, but I quickly got over within a few weeks and missed my long hair, so…no more spontaneous do’s of that nature. But coloring? You’ve totally inspired me!

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
