    Default New milestone, or should I be concerned?

    Being this is the only place I can safely post something like this and not get tons of awkward replies or have people think I'm totally insane... I got my hair caught in my underwear today. I was so surprised that it happened that I started laughing. Then I realized, if anyone IRL knew, I would get the "that's so gross" response. So I posted it here instead.
    I've decided that this is a milestone I hadn't considered before it happened. A milestone that I didn't know was a milestone! Exciting that my hair has achieved a length that this is possible, but I'm now a bit concerned at the fact that there are probably a million more hair dangers I haven't even considered, and won't until they happen.
    Oh well, I suppose that's part of the fun of growing?

    Anyway, just had to share. Have a great day, everyone!

    I want my hair to be the first thing people notice,
    the way they describe me, and the only thing they remember.

    For most of my life, that was the, "I must cut my hair immediately!" length. That was before I knew how to braid or bun or do anything but a simple ponytail, when I still brushed my hair like it was a punishment and let it get caught in anything and everything (got it caught in a revolving door at a fancy hotel once).

    Now that I know how to take care of it, I actually enjoy reaching new milestones like this. Maybe not while they're happening - I sat on my hair the other day! - but afterward there's always this burst of excitement that most people just wouldn't understand.

    So congratulations!
