Muffin, I'm glad to hear you won't be using those scarves
I used to have a super-short cut too (also mohawks, blohawks and all kinds of styles, colors and assorted craziness). But looking back, I think I liked my super-short more than any other style. So liberating! It's so great that you're being supported. Bet you'll have fun shopping for earrings Your new style will accentuate your facial features too. I'm sitting here feeling a little envious of you because (I assume) you'll have a fairly easy time caring for your hair. Some days I crave short hair again.
Have you considered, or are you already, writing for a living?
