I've booked my hair appointment, to have extension twists put in - but why? Because I am 'bored'... because my hair is not that versatile at the moment? Why have I already spent 30 minutes scouring images on google; spent 10 minutes moaning (and I hate moaners) about having to get my hair done? Why am I planning to spend at least 20 minutes selecting the perfect brand/colour/length/texture of packeted/boxed hair, 40 minutes driving to and from my hairdresser's house and then a further 4+ hours getting a numb bum in her chair! Why? Because I am 'bored'? It seems like a lot to go through to avoid boredom? Isn't it?
Surely, in that time (nearly 6 hours) we could drive to Blackpool, enjoy the sun, sea and sand, have a picnic, eat ice-cream and then come back again - or I could 'get my hair did'...

To top it all off, I will have to spend a good few hours taking it out later on - this would either be whenever I get 'bored' (the irony is tear-inducing) again, or when the (fake) hair starts to look messy..
This of course is all before I consider the cost of doing all of this - it's true, time IS money!
So, I have 36 hours to decide whether to relieve my supposed 'boredom' by
a) being creative, and, for want of a better expression, sucking it up and continuing on my natural hair journey
b) conceding that I have exhausted my creativity with my current hair length and accept that having extensions will allow me to experiment in other ways.
I know which way I am swaying!
