"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

It's a New Me!

I needed a change. Something physical. Something....fun! The shoulder length curly hair was....boring.

Stifling, almost. I've had it shoulder length for almost a decade.

I read a tweet not too long ago from an agent that was basically this: "Our actress who booked 6 national commercials as a brunette, just went blond. #facepalm"

And it made me angry. We are artists and we need to express ourselves through our physical appearance. Sometimes we need a change. Who are you to judge this like it's a bad thing? Maybe she'll book 12 commercials as a blond! You don't know. But if we need a change, we NEED a change.

So, I did what I needed to do. And I got the major change I was craving.

 It's gone. All of it.



Is it me, though? Yeah. Sometimes.






What if I straightened it?

And tried to take an artsy fartsy photo?











I got this!

Kinda Marilyn Monroe-ish, kinda messed up, kinda put together, kinda....sexy?



What if I took Headshots like this!?!?



I got THESE!!!












So here I am, World! 

And I'm excited.

I'm a different person - I'm a different type. Let's see where it takes me this year, shall we?
