The first picture was taken after I had my hair cut. I hadn't had it that short in ages. I may go short again, but not too soon. I like my long hair. The other picture with my curly hair is okay. I kind of like my curly hair. Most of the time I'll let my hair dry by itself and let it stay curly. Then after laying on it a couple of times, I'll straighten it. Just can't make up my mind sometimes.
