Good morning, friends.

Just got my first haircut in 3 years, donating 19 inches of hair in the process.

Selfie, no ec 

This is my first time without hair long enough to pull into a pony tail in over 20 years.

Kelli would have hated this haircut.

Honestly I'm hesitant to say I like it, but I'm thinning on top and tangles/hair clogs are not fun.

This is a step towards lowering maintenance time and costs, and it doesn't look /too/bad.

As a bonus, I look forward to seeing my coworkers and students flip out. They've never seen me with short hair.

@Downes @lauraritchie To be fair, I spent 22 years with a pony tail. Split ends are a thing, though.
