I´ve just realized that it was exactly one year ago that I dyed my hair from blond to red. But that´s not the point.
I did so because I broke up with my boyfriend, was kind of angry and had to do “something”. So I dyed my hair knowing he would have certainly not liked it. It was kind of revolution. Childish, but who cared? I claimed it was part of a Halloween costume. (Wilma Flinstone. As I am writing this, I am laughing at me, so feel free to do the same).
A year passed and my life has changed in so many ways! I am in love, for example. A year before I was avoiding serious relationships more than washing dishes, a real Ice Queen. Now?! I can see me in wedding dress (really beautiful) and I have name for our first baby (SHE will hate us for it).
Also, I finally decided what I want to do in my life. I overcomed the idea of poor artist doing finance (my dad´s perception of future of any artist) and realized that I really want to dedicate my life to art and design no matter what. So I am doing it! Having art classes 5 times a week makes me feel fullfiled finally.
It was a good year. Many “parts” of me, like attitudes, dreams or goals are different now and it is interesting to go through it and see how things can change. And that´s how I came to a new tradition. Every Halloween I will look one year back. Hopefully not to scare me, but to remind myself the most precious moments or maybe to take lessons from it.
And by the way, I have my blond hair again.
I have recently posted many photographs from Edinburgh. I took them this summer during one-day trip to this charming city (I was staying in Dundee, another Scotish city, participating at World School Debating Championship). We came right in the middle of Fringe festival (worth seeing!!!)
If you go there I recommend going to the main museum and take a look at the city from the roof top. That´s my favourite memory from Edinburgh.
