Identity Crisis

Have you ever had one?
Where like, everything you've ever known is now gone and you don't really know who you are?
Ok I'm being dramatic.
But for reals instead of being an "athlete," now I'm just a person.
Not that there's anything wrong with that...But since I'm not an athlete anymore, I don't have excuses for all of the lame things I do like go to bed at 8 and wear yoga pants to school every day.
I'm turning over a new leaf and I'd like to call it "being a real adult who does normal adult things."
For instance, I made the bed this morning.
And I blow-dried my hair.
These small tasks may seem like parts of every day life to, well, normal people, but for me they were things I could get away without doing because I was an "athlete" and I had to wake up early.
But, alas, here I am.
A non-athlete.
A has-been.
Along with starting to do things that I should have been doing since I was 16, I am trying to work on my person hygiene.
Not to gross anyone out, but it's hard for me to remember to shower now that I don't have to get in the pool.
If I'm not already wet from swimming...why should I have to get in a shower and intentionally get myself wet?
Like I said earlier I did my hair today for the first time since like Christmas.

Exhibit A
(trying to cleverly hide the nastiness with a headband)

Exhibit B
(again with the headband...I really wasn't fooling anybody)

Exhibit C
(I'm the one on the right with the beehive do)

I'm actually thinking about dying it.

Heard of the ombre look?
Some people hate it because it looks like you are lazy and let your roots grow out, but I love it and I think I'm gonna go for it.
Thanks for tuning in.
P.S. tomorrow's my birthday but you already knew that so you can just go ahead and mail me that really expensive present you bought me forever ago. Thx!


  1. Congrats on being the has-been. It is a good feeling. And way to end your career on such a high-note. What a blessing for you. Enjoy the life.

  2. It was fun to see you at your party! That is cool you are getting your hair done, hopefully, we can all get together next week one night. We teach Monday/Wednesday, but are free the other days. Have fun in Vegas!
