There's an ongoing battle going on...

With myself, obviously. Just when I managed to get my hair to be more or less its natural color, after years of bleaching and streaking and plain old killing my hair, I need a change!!! What is this obsession with me not being able to stick with one color??? The conservative side of me wants to die it all dark brown almost black. This would be slightly darker than my natural shade of brown. And the more funky, adventurous side wants it orange (think carrot head hair on a non-carrot head complexion). I think my sun freckles, combined with the golden tan I acquire rapidly, topped with my green/hazel eyes would suit that color, no? I'm also contemplating the cut... I would like to say drastic but chances are I'll chicken out and go for the basic trim. One entire post on my hair... How vain am I?

In which I don't necessarily have a point, nor a punch line...

I bonded with my manager today. I thought this was worth mentioning, not because I have absolutely nothing else to blog about, but because this is the first time this happens. It's only her 2nd month in this position and I am fairly new to the gym but we still never really had the occasion to talk about our personal lives. Perhaps its our first conversation of this sort because I cannot handle taking orders, and I am quite resilient to change especially at a higher level of the organization. I am an order-giver not taker and I have a natural desire to lead and not be lead therefore often have difficulties with management, more precisely when they are in my age group. That being said, although I don't see her and I skipping down the street together holding hands and sharing secrets, it was pleasant for us to have a non-work related discussion.
