Simon Blogs about dying his hair blue in his free teen online journal.

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

I always like to think when people are rude - it's more of a negative reflection of their own insecurity and self and LESS about you at all.  Despite knowing that - it's still hurts. I am glad you shared your story, that was brave and I bet other girls here will feel a little better knowing they are not alone in feeling this way.  Lastly, I know none of you guys know me yet as today is my first day BUT I LOVE, like LOVE Henry David Thoreau. He is one of my absolute favourite writers. <3    Haha that's great, yes, he is. When my grandfather died we had put it as a quote.  Haha (: You guys are amazing! Great advice ^-^ Now my little bit of advice... thanks for leaving such a broad area to touch on... *grumbles* What can I say? And don't you forget it! Remember, if you ever need a friend, I''ll be here. So... send me a friend request if you're up to it ^-^

    I think it's good that you put this up. It's obvious that you care about him. Maybe he just needs a friend? Not necessarily... "a girl."  Do you know why he's been so down?
