Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately, things they don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
Excuse me while I kiss the sky
Nothing like a Jimi’s classic to explain how I feel about receiving my diploma and my new do. It seems surreal to actually have the diploma in my hands. My graduation ceremony is this Spring, and I still have my thesis this summer for my MED nonetheless, I have finished one stepping stone. This reminds me of a quote that stuck with me from the show GIRLS. (side note: I’m super excited at the same time sad for the final season)
“Taking the next step in a series of random steps. How strange our journey is through life. You know, we try to inject it with meaning, but at the end of the day, all we have are… days… marching on.” – Adam
My new do’ gives me life right now! There are so many things I love about it. One of them is the fact that it sometimes has gray hues and others times it looks more purple. Purple is by no means my favorite color nonetheless I can’t deny its mystical essence, it also happens to be the color symbol for lupus and it also is the color for my college Westminster. My fondness for my new hair increased even more after I went and had it cut and styled. This wig is such good quality the hairstylist thought it was sewn-in hair extensions. Here are some pictures I took having fun with my look and of course snap chat filters.
