Oh, the end of the semester. Papers, finals, piles upon piles of stress. Hence why there have been no posts. But no worries, I am home for the summer with lots of free time!
The 2 day 1,492 (give or take) mile drive was completely worth it. Crossing over that Texas borderline gave me chills and maybe a little bit of a lead foot as well. Luckily, no tickets so far. Knock on wood.
Every time I get back to Texas, there is the biggest feeling of relief. I know its a strange thing to say, seeing as this is a travel blog. But one of the things I love so much about traveling is the thrill of coming home. It always seems at least slightly new. Just small things like a new water tower, or the town hall being moved.
And of course, it gives me the option to change a few things about myself as well. While attending school in Pennsylvania, I do not get my hair done, as my sister is my stylist. So coming home means getting a hair cut. And a little bit more!
I decided to go blonde. I’ve done this once before, sort of. Right before I ventured to Australia, I decided I wanted to be a blonde beach babe. But seeing as I’m a natural brunette and would not be able to get touch ups for five months, it ended up being a dirty blonde. Not this time.
This time my sister and I decided on super blonde! I was shocked the first time I looked in the mirror. Never in my life has my hair been this light. And, as much as I’ve always thought brunettes were better than blondes in every way, I have to admit, I love the blonde.
So I guess its time to see. Are travels more fun blonde?
