snippet.

noun
1.
a small piece snipped off; a small bit, scrap, or fragment: an anthology of snippets.


I have been writing. I have. It's all been coming to me in tiny snippets. Whatever it is, I'm not sure I'll ever know. I've been more hesitant than usual to share, and I'm not sure I know why that is either.

I've been searching the internet for ways to hide my awkward hair. I spent two hours trimming a scarf last Saturday. It felt absurd. Also, I bought a new swim suit. Even though the very hope of vacation is months away. Even though I'll only get the chance to wear it probably four whole times this entire summer....I bought a new swim suit. Because people need things to look forward to. They just do.

I've been comparing myself to other people. Because, regardless of the self-destructing nature of this habit, it's one of the only things that has ever come naturally to me. You might be thinking, Just because something comes naturally doesn't necessarily make it a good thing.

Yeah. Well.

  1. I was just thinking to myself, "Meg's hair is adorable. I wish my hair looked like that right now:"

    This whole growing out a pixie is nonsense. I'm in the awkward phase as well and I'm resisting the urge to shave my head at this point.

    1. It's so freaking hard. I mean, I'll always be a fan of just going with your impulse and chopping hair off. But it does not come without consequence.

  2. Yeah your hair looks freaking good in those pics. So, good job. Yay for a new swimsuit! I spend hours pondering how I to get myself into a modest swimsuit this summer? I don't think anyone can blame me if I wear a bikini. No one will be attracted to that.

  3. I really like your hair actually! You rock it! It's so hard NOT to compare yourself to other people. Trust me. I do it all the time, but just know you are cool, and if I met you in real life I am sure you'd be even cooler than your internet self.
