Change one aspect of my appearance

The idea of this task (from the 101 in 1001 list) stems from a discussion with some friends relating to the subject of how the physical image of a person affects that person’s conception of herself. The hypothesis was that someone who regularly changes her appearance, would develop a more flexible view. People like me, whose attitude to changes in appearance, is more akin to geography than to fashion, would then have a rather rigid and inflexible view. I have no idea if this is true or if it makes any kind of sense whatsoever, but that can’t be helped.

My automatic response to a question about why I like the way I am now, goes along the lines: “Because I don’t care very much.” The more I think about this, the more I realise this is only partially true. Sure, I don’t care very much about how I look compared to how much other people seem to care, but I care as well. I think everyone does. The other part is that I think that I’m afraid of change. Appearance is an aspect of myself which is rather easy to change. It’s also comparatively easy to change back. So here we go:



It will take some time for me getting used to it. So far I’m rather positive about the change. My hair dries in about two seconds and I don’t get strands of it in my eyes all the time. Also, it tickled pleasantly when I biked home from my parents. I still flinch when I look in a mirror, though.

    Heh. Nja, tanken var att jag skulle ta två lika bilder först, men sedan orkade jag inte photoshoppa dem ordentligt så det blev sådär. Bilderna är tagna med kanske en halvtimmes mellanrum och jag tänker inte tala om hur man tränar så effektivt på den tiden :D
