I had a sad realisation not long ago. I realised that, after my final year of University, I have to get a job, and getting a job means (usually) having a normal hair colour, normal clothes and no metal in your face.
Sadly, this gives me a year and a bit to dye my hair stupid colours and get all the use out of my bright yellow jeans while I still can. So, I'm going to dye my hair, and instead of my usual brown in the back, peroxide fringe look, I'm going to dye my hair whatever colour I see fit, get the whole spectrum of colours out of the way.
That way, when I finally leave Uni and start looking for work, instead of being sad that I can no longer have whacky colours, I'll be glad of all the money I'll save on no more hair dye.
As for no metal in the face... well, my employer will have to pull my septum ring from my cold dead nostrils before I'd give that up. Good job it flips discreetly into the nose really. And the eyebrow piercing had to go anyway.
Anywho, first colour coming up? Bright fucking turquoise. One of my most favourite colours.
So freaking excited. I've not had brightly dyed hair since I was 15.
