New Year, New Post

Let’s do the Daily Prompt, shall we?

If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?

Radically different? Maybe not so much. Hipper? For sure. But keep in mind, my teen years were in the nineties, so depending on your age, it’s possibly quite a different definition of ‘hipper.’

When I was twenty-two, I dyed my hair pink. It was hot pink for about a month, then I bleached it to a light baby pink. I loved that hair. It was against my employer’s dress code, but my manager didn’t care, so I got away with it.

I had a silver sequin dress that I loved–and looked pretty hot in. I wonder what happened to it.

I’d like to go back to that look, but keeping some of my current me.

I stopped biting my nails and have amassed quote the collection of polish, so I’d stick with that.

I follow a ton of makeup artists on Instagram and have become a pretty good hand at winged eyeliner, so I’d definitely stick with that as well.

As far as personality traits go, I’m okay with what I’ve got. I’ll just leave that bit alone.

So, bright hair, sparkly clothes, and pretty nails and makeup. That sounds good.

Or maybe I should go with wigs. That would save my poor hair.

What would you change?

Happy New Year to all!

    You could totally do all those things… tomorrow. I don’t think I’d want to change anything but I wouldn’t mind trying out being a man for a few days. Mostly for the peeing standing up.

      Only if I went the wig route–my current manager would probably have a stroke if I showed up with bright hair. He barely survived a little henna.

      But you’re right; I could do them.

      Peeing standing up would come in handy sometimes, though.

  3. […] year ago, I considered who I’d like to be; I wanted to be hip. I still want to be hip, but I’ve done a pretty darn good job of hipping […]
