Oh man. I am in so much trouble. Like, hiding-in-my-room kind of trouble. Who knew that dyeing my hair blue would send my mom into such a rage?

So here's the story. You know how I've been having some sort of mid-teens crisis of late. I keep whining about how I'm bored and directionless. So I thought, "Hey, if I can't change the big things, I can change the little ones." Then I dyed my hair blue. I seriously never considered that my mom would even care. I mean, it's my hair. Aren't teenagers supposed to do stuff like this? It's not like I work in a bank or something.

Mom was anything but cool. She even started yelling at me in Spanish (and that's when you know you're really in trouble). She's getting her friend to come over and dye it back. This is so embarrassing. I tried to talk her into letting me keep it until Halloween, so I could integrate it into my costume (my brother laughed at me and said I should be a Smurf - I was thinking just a '70s style punk). It doesn't even matter, though, because my mom is so mad that she's saying I'll be lucky if I'm even allowed to go out for Halloween. Why is this such a big deal?!

Anyway, I'm still going to plan a non-blue-haired costume in the hopes that my mom mellows out once my hair is normal again. What are you guys going to be? I think I'm just going to throw together a Grim Reaper costume. It's not my most inspired idea ever, but I don't want to put in a huge effort in case I'm not allowed to go out. if your parents are as controlling as mine are when it comes to how you look.

Later,
Simon

    Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

    Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

    Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
