I had the most fun day today. I went to Takapuna for a ‘Lindy Bomb’ – this means that we were promoting Swing Dance (in particular Lindy Hop). So I spent about 45 minutes dancing in public. That is something I would never have done a year ago.
It is so nice to be able to just dance and have fun. I think that is part of the reason why I am so happy this year. I’m finally able to do something I enjoy as I have more time! My job isn’t so stressful (it has it’s moments) and I spend less time thinking about the school stuff I have to do and more time thinking about dance and my travels next year.
After dancing I went to Auckland City to get my hair cut. I got there a bit early and ended up going into Smith and Caughey’s because they have an end of winter sale. I got some cool stockings for $10 which have flower patterns. They look super cool. I can’t wait to wear them. It’s starting to feel warmer….or maybe that’s just me wishing for warmer weather!
This time I decided to get my hair cut more like Jean Seberg and Michele Mercier. The reason? Because it is hard to get the hairdresser to cut my hair short enough. I find that they do not like cutting around the ears…they always leave these wispy bits by the ears and it grows out quickly and looks weird. It is also hard to get them to cut the hair at the back of my head shorter. Luckily this time I managed to get the exact haircut I wanted. I took a photo (like usual) of the desired haircut for the hairdresser to copy. I always take a photo because English is not their first language so it can be hard to explain what I want in a way that they can understand.
Here’s the before:
Here’s the after:
I tried to get a photo of the sides and front.
Also, here’s the Swing Dance performance from the performance ball last weekend:
