When I was younger I made a lot of promises to myself. One was that I would never let myself get a pixie cut, even if it was a popular trend amongst older women. Valid enough. I have let my hair grow long for the majority of my life and have never entered above the shoulders territory since kindergarten. Another rule was formulated on a day of gym class gymnastics.

At this moment I vowed that unless I was ever in a situation where it was a safety precaution to tuck in clothing, I would not go there. I have to give myself some credit on this one, tucking in a t-shirt to elastic stretches was a horrendous look, but at this tender age I had not envisioned the future fashions were tops that could never look better than tucked in. Now I’m almost always tucking in tops in my skirts, sometimes even with pants. Gasp!
