Hair Photo A Day 1-10

So there's this hair-themed Photo-a-day challenge that some of my friends are doing. I wasn't going to (too much time commitment), but then I decided, eh, I'll do them a chunk at a time. And yes, there is a reason for this: scroll down! (And sorry for a couple of re-used photos. I'm really, really tired from State Drama.)
1. Hair Self-Portrait. So my face isn't in it. So what? This is supposed to be about hair.

2. Celeb Hair You Love. While this is never, ever, something I could pull off myself, I'm just so impressed by her confidence! And if anyone looks good with short hair, she does.

3. Hair Flashback. This picture was simply too good to pass up, though I'm not the focus. First grade. Short curls.

4. Going-Out Hair. Can't find any good pictures of me, so here's one of my basic style: twist and pin.

5. Hair Color You Adore. I love love love dark brown hair.

6. Your Hair-Do Today. And here we come to why I did this post. I-chopped-off-all-my-hair. Okay, not really, but a good six+ inches are gone, and I love it! I haven't had hair this short since freshman year, and it feels so weird for it to just end. But now it's completely healthy and it curls so nicely and I'm not constantly trying to get it out of my way. Yeah. I love it.

7. Best Hair Moment. Sadly, all my best hair moments seem to be right before to bed or when I'm not going anywhere and are consequently undocumented. I will therefore give you a picture of my most exciting recent hair moment: when I played an astrological adviser at my friend's murder mystery party. (Fine. Not so much a hair moment, but a fun moment nonetheless.)

8. Your Fave Hair-Accessory. Don't even need to think about this one. My pearl circlet made by my darling friend Shaylynn. Go here to buy one of your very own.

9. Straight Hair. It happens occasionally.

10. Long Hair. Just for comparison so you can see how much is gone.

Alleluia, Christ is Risen!

Stake Conference on this beautiful Easter morn was truly glorious. I wish I could just transfer everything we heard straight into your heads, but since I can't I'll leave it to those much more capable than I.

He is risen! He is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice.
He has burst his three days’ prison;
Let the whole wide earth rejoice.
Death is conquered; man is free.
Christ has won the victory.

Come with high and holy hymning;
Chant our Lord’s triumphant lay.
Not one darksome cloud is dimming
Yonder glorious morning ray,
Breaking o’er the purple east,
Symbol of our Easter feast.

He is risen! He is risen!
He hath opened heaven’s gate.
We are free from sin’s dark prison,
Risen to a holier state.
And a brighter Easter beam
On our longing eyes shall stream.

Christ the Lord is ris’n today,
Sons of men and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth reply,

Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the vict’ry won,
Jesus’ agony is o’er,
Darkness veils the earth no more,

Lives again our glorious King,

Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once he died our souls to save,
Where thy victory, O grave?

Happy Easter.
