SPC Self Portrait Challenge "PATTERNS"



The SPC "Patterns" challenge has been really inspiring for me. I didn't realize how many ways patterns in your everyday life could be interpreted by so many people!
My portrait this week is all about "The Patterns of Routine". For as long as I can remember I have despised the task of doing my hair! Despite this irritation I have always dutifully done my hair, following the routine that suits the particular hairstyle I have at any given time, thinking of all of the other things I could be doing with this chunk of time. I grow tired of the same brush, the way I grasp the hairdryer, the long tedious pulls of the flat iron, the icky feeling of damp hair as it falls across my face.....eyes peeking through the mish mash pattern of hair as it lays across my skin I am reminded how truly obnoxious this routine truly is!

I pretty much hate doing my hair... it never turns out right... a ponytail is more my style most days :)

Oh... and I started reading the twilight series over again today... Maybe that will help to end this obsession I have going??? Or not.

doing hair is a pain in the behind... it is a routine that i'm not overly fond of either. but, you photo is beautiful of you peeking through your hair.
