I need some change...

I don't know if it is because of the weather... (it should be illegal to have this bad weather)

I feel like something as to change...

My haircut, color... Should I go shorter, should I go lighter....

I want to get into shape but can't find what to do. I am thinking to began swimming.

I am bored as hell. I got 3 weeks of wonderful weather, it was warm and sunny and we were wearing our summer clothes... And we are back in this!!!

I don't know what to wear because again the weather is too weird.

Sigh!

Re: I need some change...

Do the hair! It's instant gratification, you don't have to worry about doing boring exercise and you can stay inside where it's warm. And you'll love the new look at the end and feel fantastic, an instant pick-me-up!

By the way, if it's any consolation, we are having the same sort of crap weather here at the moment, although it IS autumn in Perth....

Change the colour with semi permanent dye. In case you hate it you will just have to wash it out. In case you love it you will feel much better

Re: I need some change...

I'd vote for the hair as well, even something as simple as putting in temporary highlights (or lowlights) to change the effect could be a good "pick me up" on a chilly cloudy day like today.

Meanwhile, there is an indoor pool near the zoo. It was a bit crowded when I went (Dec or Jan, I can't remember) so isn't really my thing (I sooo miss swimming at the beach) but it is good for a bit of exercise if you are thinking that may help your mood.


Now that I know how to get there, and can get there confidently on my own, I suspect I'll probably be over to the pool at Bachgraben pretty often once the weather is warmer. A morning of swimming, a quick hop over to Aldi and then back home... sounds like a plan for a productive future Tuesday.

Re: I need some change...

If you don't work, buy a ticket for you and the little one to go back home for a visit; tickets are reasonable right now. Otherwise, go to London for the day- that always cheers me up.

I thought you have a girlfriend, so you should know that females are not able to do so. The only difference is that our little princess here takes the time to write them down and share them with us.

I would not suggest to make decisions on your haircut because you are depressed by the weather... you might end up like one of those ladies who think they look younger if they get a short cut with terrible colors...

Sport is a better idea. Why not go swimming? What else might suit you? Paintball? Karting? Kick Boxing? Or do your posts here not reflect your personality?

What a normal woman does when faced with such a turning point in life is to change their hairstyle and divorce their husband. Good luck negotiating the settlement.

Sorry, I'll prefer to turn the furniture around in the house or change color. The hubby? No way! Great men like him are too rare!

Beside, I am not a normal woman...

Honestly Nil, with all the sh!t that goes on in my own head, I really don't have time to be following the minutiae of your inner life. WTF woman?

Really, WTF?

Take a holiday somewhere hot. It'll do you the world of good and the upside is that you can ponder all these deep thoughts at a safe distance.
